People without a gaming pc are "Cheap and Lazy".


This is yet another reply to a reply I found on a gaming news site.
To give a little bit of context, the article was discussing World of Warcraft updating it's character models and had a lot of people complaining that the upgrade wasn't good enough.

It started off as a fairly simple conversation about why Blizzard, the developers of the game, might have an incentive to avoid having the game push hardware at all.
It quickly took a turn and became quite a rant from me when I read a comment stating that anybody who didn't upgrade to a more powerful gaming pc was "Cheap and Lazy" which struck me as immensely ignorant and a perfect example of one of the many mentalities that does all kinds of damage to the reputation of gaming both as a culture and as a medium as well as the communities that grow around it.

Scoff Zine, available now!


Scoff Zine is now available online for anybody to read, and it is completely free!

I have a wonderful 2 page contribution in the form of a comic called "The Wheating Room" that I managed to churn out just before the deadline hit.

It also features Jake Lawrence, also known as Timecowboy, an artist I am very fond of!

I would very much like to create more for zines such as this, so feel free to send an email to ben@minddump.co.uk if you would happen to know of one that might be in need of some odd little comics to fill a page or two!
