They still play with wired controllers. What is this? Permanently plugged in charged controller land?

I personally hate playing with wires, especially the rubbishly short cables you get on some game console controllers. I have to sit in front of the TV to use them and considering the size of screens you can get nowadays that isn't a good thing for the eyes.

My PS3 controller suits me perfectly. If it wears down I plug it in and leave it for half an hour. Fully charged. My personal opinion is that cables should be kept plugged in the back of stuff and out of sight.

Blame Mad Max. If it weren't for that series of movies, we would probably not have the entire Cyberpunk style that associates biker chic with the end of the world.

I think it is a kind of weird macho by proxy thing for the character designers: "Ooh, look at me in leather with metal spikes! I must be all bad, hard and strong to dress like this! That explains why I survived the apocalypse!"

My opinion is: bikers are people of desert. If there will be nuclear war, biker gangs will have best chances for survive. The reason is: main target are cities and military bases. Also, leather is good, when you need to cover youself from wind and sand... in fact, leather is better, than cotton\wool\silk, if you need to protect yourself from radiation winds and you have no real danger suit.

I have a wireless controller, and a wired controller. Guess which I'm using.
Hint: It doesn't use batteries.

...and no one mentioned that Art is looking more and more melancholic with every strip. Now he's like those stone faces from Rapanui.

Poor fella:
a bunch of squirrels that are like unwilled kids to him;
4 feet tall penguin that is far more badass than he;
an army of shadow creatures in the basement;
a katgirl whose relationship with is never going to work out, because of the God's will.

This guy need an adventure or something.

As someone who has ridden thousands of miles cross country on his motorcycle (I've actually got more cross country miles on my bike than 'cruising around town' miles) I'm afraid I have to point out that the bikers->desert is a movietown myth. There are painfully few people who actually live the life style you're picturing.

After 200 years after, plus a rather grown immunity from generations of people exposed, I think I'd go for the bad-ass leather too. Fuck look at the cover. He looks like a BADASS

I suggest we make Art go through Fallout New Vegas. I agree he needs a SoloArc

What i would like to know if cows have become the two headed hairless pink things, WHY is leather still black and brown? I mean I don;t see pink studded biker gear being the rage so are the leather stuffs 300+ years old? Or is that radioactive dye?

Kat kissed Art right in a beak once and NO ONE mentioned it again. Common thing to happen, you know.

Don't forget a certain poisonous platypus creeping around Jack-Knows-Where at any given moment because of his lack of screen time.

HAHAHAHA! I have no need for wires or batteries! In the center of one of the rooms in my house I have built a giant tesla coil like device the emits electromagnetic waves throughout my house, all I have to do is hook up a special coil of wires to pick up the waves into where ever the battery or power source from the wire would go of what I want to power. The coils that I hook up to the other devices have adjustable capacitors on them to limit the amount of power that is going into the device that I want to power. The machine's waves have a range of about 60 feet before you can't power anything, so I never need to recharge my batteries or worry about the length of a wire!(unless for some reason I wanted to sit more than 60 feet away from my TV and try to play a game)

60 feet away from the screen. Try playing Limbo then.

Believe it or not there IS a reason for all the leather on both bikers AND post-apocalyptic survivors. Leather is one of the best armors you can get your hands on short of man-made materials like bullet-proof armor. It's a hell of a lot easier to make than metal armor as well and more flexible and breathable. My father has worked with leather my whole life. Originally bikers wore leather for the combination of comfort and road-rash preventing ability. I would imagine that anyone surviving the apocalypse would be smart to do the same. It offers ample protection while still allowing almost a full range of movement.

The spikes and such would serve two purposes, one being the same as spikes on a dog's collar, protection. It's a lot harder to grab hold of someone with spikes than someone without. And intimidation, you're likely to be more cautious of someone wearing spiked leather than some schmuck in a business suit and tie.

I would assume it would be the tanning process, plus people' affinity for having DARK leather as opposed to lighter ones. Plus weathering and sun would have an effect on it as well. Dirt too would make it darker.

Plus it looks badass.

Get the Wastelander Outfit. It has a pink brahmin-skin hoodie. Gets you +1 END and +! AGL if I remember correctly.

Spikes are tricky, though. Contrary to popular belief, Vikings knew better than to wear horns on their helmets because those horns would provide convenient handles for an attacker to grab. A biker's spikes would seem to me to be more for intimidation purposes, but they could serve as protection if they were designed so that an attacker couldn't hold onto them.

It depends on the length of the spikes of course. A short sharp stud is what I would go with if anything, somewhere such as shoulders and wrists. Anywhere that would make a convenient handle for an enemy without the spikes there as a deterrent. Anything that just becomes a handle would be nothing but an inconvenience, the same goes for chains and straps.
