May 2007 Archives

Episode 216 has arrived! With a little encouragement, Rika finally gives in and tells Pepito what she's been dying to hear. All it took was three days and a little violence!

Folks, I'm gonna go ahead and announce that I'm switching updates to Fridays. I'm not having nearly as much time to draw on the weekends as I used to, and with my tablet pen still out of commission, I've been needing the extra days the last couple of weeks anyway. So keep coming back on Fridays, okay? My short hair is still here.

A new oekaki has been posted. As is generally the case, it's not work-safe. What a shock!

In closing, I'd like to thank you voters for voting! After spending months and months (and months) in toplist purgatory, OHP has finally reemerged into the Top 100! A new month is right around the corner, but if you keep voting every day, we can keep climbing the charts!

It's true, my tablet pen died. But despite it all, I was able to cobble together Episode 215. You never really know how reliant you've become on technology until that technology suddenly stops working! Unfortunately for Rika, this tablet disaster has only prolonged the sense of panic and discomfort setting in as she's reminded that she may have inadvertently married into a family of lunatics.

If you've tried posting (unsuccessfully) to Fearsome this week, it's now working properly again. The current version of Wacintaki and the new version of PHP apparently had a difference of opinion on the whole saving people's drawings thing, but they've since shaken hands and made up. Word on the street's that it's Porn Month over there... but, wait, when isn't it?

The reading list to your right (if you're reading this exciting entry from the site rather than the feed) has been updated with a bunch of new webcomics. All of them are awesome, but don't take my word for it! Become hooked.

Oh my GOD Ninja Gaiden is hard. I can't even tell if I'm going the right way half the time!

And now, for the thing I know many of you have probably been waiting for since the comic went on hiatus last year: the D'bos are back in Episode 214. Longest dinner ever, right? Real time don't mean nothin' in Comic World, sucka!

Also, Pepito's mutant healing factor has now been corrected.

This week I watched Aachi & Ssipak, which is a frenetically animated Korean sci-fi gem. The character designs are wonderfully quirky, and the art style incredibly fluid; if you're not shy about some naughty themes and scatological humor, it's great fun! Also, on the subject of awesome animation (with a rather moving story that lots of folks should be able to identify with), you definitely wouldn't want to miss Mind Game. The less said about it, the better. If you haven't seen it, do. I can't recommend it enough.

Is anybody else excited about Odin Sphere? It looks completely gorgeous! There's hope for 2D gaming yet!

Episode 213 wraps things up with Ruby, Mai and Queen... for now! What will next week have in store, I wonder?

An OHP LiveJournal feed was created! Now you can get your news updates delivered piping hot to your Friends page. Props to JeffreyAtW.

I went back and cleaned up the Comixpedia article a little since they've officially given the go-ahead to creators to add to their own articles (unlike Wikipedia). But where's the fun in that, eh? You can add to it, too, so please do! The current article was created almost entirely by folks like yourself, and has proven to be a decent read in its own right... but it does need some updating! Are you a bad enough dude?

Gears of War has been conquered on Insane mode. It's a hell of a game. Epic could've made another UT-style first person shooter around the concept, but instead went with something squad tactics-based and infinitely more fun (but still with that Unreal visual flare). It's still a shooter at its core, obviously, but it just goes to show you that even a little change can be good. Some of those Developers Who Should Not Be Named (but whose names rhyme with Pear Phoenix and Hegemonic Farts) should be taking notes. Next up on my To Play List: Panzer Dragoon Orta, Ninja Gaiden Black.
