RAIN p.98 - Weirdest Things by JocelynSamara RAIN p.98 - Weirdest Things by JocelynSamara

Please note: If you’re not a gamer, the following two paragraphs will probably be indecipherable gibberish. If you ARE a gamer, you'll probably appreciate this. Either way, most of what I’m about to say is purely supplemental anyway. All you REALLY need to know is what the page itself showed. ^_^

Anyway, I’ve mentioned this several times before, but there is no actual product placement in this comic. I do love me some parodies, though. There’s no “Nintendo Entertainment System” (NES for short) with games like “Battletoads” in this comic universe. But there is a “Funtendo Entertainment System” (FES for short), featuring a game called “Fighter Frogs”.

Silly parody aside, it’s basically meant to be the same thing. That is, a very hard but very fun video game for a console that’s well over twenty years old. Incidentally, the Funtendo would realistically be before Rain or Gavin’s times by almost a full decade (since the story is “present day”, they would’ve been born into the generation of the Funtendo 64 and the GeekStation 1). They must be pretty hardcore players to really appreciate such old-school classics though.
