Rain Delay 11 by JocelynSamara Rain Delay 11 by JocelynSamara
Introducing “Rain Delay”: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff. (Last derailing. Seriously, Chapter 11 next post!)


This Party's Boopin'
Not really a joke, as much as an excuse to use some of the fake game titles I've come up with over the past year and a half or so for this comic. About half of them were, however, made up exclusively for this strip (ironically, making Rudy's comment very accurate).

I should add that I will be extremely impressed if anyone can figure out every last one (and the origin of the title, for that matter). Many of the parodies are based (largely, albeit not entirely) on my own old Super Nintendo collection which consisted of both very mainstream and very obscure titles. Hint: A thesaurus might help in some cases.


(Fe)mail
This may actually be my least favorite Rain Delay to date. The joke - intended to play on Chanel's discomfort around boys - comes off a lot more mean on paper than it sounded in my head. To go a little further, that meanness just seems out of a character for her. She's not really mean.

But I've doomed myself to two 4koma shorts per Rain Delay, and I had no other (good) ideas, so I stuck with it. I guess I probably shouldn't be so hung up on whether or not these non-canon strips are in character though. Especially considering other Rain Delays have featured everything from Maria giving Rain a death threat, to Puddle being a (particularly skilled) gamer, to Emily controlling the passage of time.

I like (Fe)mail! Just based on my own experiences, 90+% of all incoming email coming from males who are not members of my family is suggestive or condescending (or both). Or just flat out disgusting. So I pretty much trash everything I don't know the origin or the person.

Ninety percent? Even accounting for the universally degraded state of discourse on the internet, that's atrocious.

Yes, it is. I can't count how many "proposels" I've had on FB since I joined. A couple were for marriage, the rest were for "shorter term" arrangements. Plus the usual photo and intiminte (my spelling sucks today!) apparel requests. Some people are really sick. I got a few banned from FB, but that didn't last long. One actually made it to the small town in Texas where I lived at the time. When he was arrested he turned out to be a registered sex offender from up north. He'd gone off the radar in his own state where he was on parole for violent sexual assault and assault with a deadly weapon.

Numeric estimations aside, what she's describing is pretty much the norm for Facebook. I don't care to go into great detail, but I've seen similar incidents there and closed my account with great disgust because of it. And people wonder why FB stock is in freefall.

I don't know what Gardensnail Jon is like, but as long as it's not the actual Earthworm Jim it's fine.

Earthworm Jim has been banned after a rather unfortunate incident that had nothing to do with the game itself

Heh. I had a lot of trouble thinking one up for that game. I guess that could work, but I feel like it'd be better if it were a made up word similar to Metroid. Just couldn't think of one. ^_^

Heh. I was gonna say "Space Hunters: Fission", but then the Hunter isn't really the title character, is he? (besides, Fission is for the Game Player Enhanced, not the Super Funtendo)

Ya know what, I'm just gonna go watch Incarnations: The Final Windshaper. Then again, I'm overdue for a Galaxy Duels marathon. (this is fun!)

That's one impressive list I'm not going to lie. It's too bad she didn't pick up a PEGA system, then she could have played some classics like, Phonic Adventure 1 and 2, Days into Visions, Ditiga Warrior, Insane Cab, Trubo Set Wireless, and Power Rock......I don't think I'm as good at this as you are.

Sonic Adventure 1 & 2, Virtua Fighter, Crazy Taxi, (I'll admit, "Turbo Set Wireless" has me stumped), and Power Stone.

Though you know, it's not really fair to compare the Dreamcast to the SNES; they are from completely different generations of hardware and each excelled at different genre's of games.

Well I was planning to include Genesis/Megadrive games but then my mind drew a blank and I could only think of Sonic games (And maybe 'Alan Boy') and games which were multi-platform and already on the list (this is what I get for growing up with Nintendo myself).
Oh and 'Turbo Set Wireless' was meant to be 'Jet Set Radio'

What is this malarkey, Ms. Flaherty? No Sceneriser? No Transylfortress IV? No Spiritburner? No Mystery of Divinity? I suppose I could excuse not having a copy of Troll Skirmish V: Advance of the Dark Empress, being that it's so rare and all. But what true old school gamer doesn't have a copy of The Marooned Norsemen? Shameful...

To my extreme shame, the one I've never played is Super Mario RPG. I was just never able to find a copy of the game for sale, new or used. I swear, Bowser must've hijacked the shipment for my region and stockpiled all of the games in his castle.
