First off DONATION WALLPAPER IS HERE FINALLY! Click here to check it out on the Femmegasm Bonus Tumblr. I hope everyone likes it.
As for today’s comic, I apologize if not many people got it, but it’s something that was bothering me for a while and I had to do a comic about it. Video game giant Konami had purchased another video game company I like, Hudson. Makers of such great games as Bomberman, Adventure Island, Bonk’s Adventure and more. This happened at a time when Hudson was in the process of making some new games. A few Bomberman games and a new Bonk game. The latter I was looking very forward to.
Well Konami buys out Hudson and promises to complete the games they had in production and let Hudson work on their own despite the buy out. However not too long after the buy out, Konami goes back on their word, completely absorbs Hudson and cancelled ALL the games they had in production. Pretty dickish move if you ask me. I swear, between them and Capcom it seems like they’re just trying to piss people off.
Anyway I was quite a bit saddened with the cancellation of the new Bonk game, but can unfortunately understand not wanting to take a risk on a franchise that’s been kinda’ dormant since the SNES (not counting a Japan only updated version of the original game on Gamecube/PS2), but cancelling Bomberman games?! That’s insane?! Bomberman games are practically like printing money. Damn near everyone loves Bomberman (hell, it’s kinda’ what was keeping Hudson alive for a while there). So cancelling a Bomberman game just seems baffling to me. Those games sell no matter what (well… there was that one Xbox one…), so yeah… quite a pissy business decision if you ask me.
