Video Game webcomics, specifically.
And takes a very specific shot at Ctrl-Alt-Del.
And it's fuckin' brilliant as always.

Is that a gamer-humor video making fun of gamer-humor strips followed by an ad for a gamer-humor cartoon?

The brain asplodes.

Yesss, it's self-aware about the meta though.

What's the shot? Hide it if you must, I don't read Ctrl-Alt-Del because I don't find it funny.

Ctrl-Alt-Del did a strip recently where pregnant female character miscarried the baby.

The description of the shit comic also fits very well with CAD.

Actually...pretty much every comment made after the "Bontrol Balt Balete" comic appeared on the screen was directed at Ctrl+Alt+Del. Pretty much the last half of the video.

He pretty much said everything I've been saying about Absath for a long time.

As funny as he is sometimes, he probably should watch out about casting stones.

Although he did perhaps get a bit target-specific in the last half, the first half was great. Mostly because it can be applied to almost all awful webcomics, especially the stuff about what passes for characterisation.

this was full of win.

I was a huge CAD fan for a while. then he got all pre-Madonna on everyone.. and pissed alot of his older fanbase.

Isn't that what he did at the end there?

The webcomics about 2 guys and their wacky ancillary characters breaking down the intricacies of games/comics/film/toys/geekdom do seem to have exploded lately and have definitely reached the oversaturation point...

I just can't wait for Absath's attempt at a comeback.

I don't pay attention to the drama, what're you talking about?
