I’ve been updating my web pages recently, and noticed I hadn’t updated the “Aspiring Video Game Character” comic section in 3 years.  Figured I should either do another comic, or just dump the section.  So I did the hard thing and created a new comic.  While I use a lot of games for these comics, I decided I should do one with the new version of Ariane.

I thought I’d start out the new year with a brief look into the future.

Recently, a newspaper I grew up reading, and even made money in school delivering, closed its doors. Small newspapers are closing while big newspapers are cutting back. Part of this can be attributed to the economic times, mostly it is the internet that is to blame. Newspapers have been replaced with RSS feeds, classified ads with craigslist, etc.

I do not think it will end there. In the not too distant future (five years tops) web apps will be available to scan the internet and create a custom video newscast just for you. One company working on this idea is News at Seven, though according to the site they were going to release a new version in September 2008 and here it is 4 months later and no new version. Who knows?

Anyways, I thought I’d illustrate the idea web comic style.

The latest Aspiring Video Game Star comic. I so rarely make new ones may as well blog them when I do.
