Food existing in video games as a health and power-up item has become a classic staple of the industry, but am I the only one disturbed by the fact that we see characters eating randomly found food that just happens to laying directly on the ground. Whether its slices of pizza in any TMNT arcade game, rolling mushrooms in Mario, or turkey legs in Final Fight we witness gaming heroes practicing horrible food safety attitudes.
Our latest video game comic is in response to this weeks reveal that Mass Effect 3 will indeed feature co-op multiplayer game play. As expected, this news has cause a stir from both those for and opposing the announcement. Those against are afraid that its addition will lessen the singleplayer experience while multiplayer fans have been waiting for this confirmation ever since it was rumored months back.

Modeled after a pizza pie with a single slice removed, Pac-Man could be considered gaming’s first Survival Horror star.

Whether he’s hurling barrels at a construction site, smashing them to rescue his monkey pal (Diddy Kong) , or blasting himself out of them – The famed gorilla has become a black belt at all forms of barrel usage. Alongside seeming ageless classic gameplay, Donkey Kong has managed to stay in the hearts of gamers because he’s quite the dynamic character.
Donkey Kong began his career as a villain in the original, self titled, arcade game where he stole Jumpman’s (who later became Mario) girlfriend and carried her to the top of a construction site. Years later, DK would find himself as the hero when his island’s banana supply gets stolen. This change from bad to good is one of the reasons that you can’t keep this ape down.
