That. was. the best video game I ever played!
SOOOO Good!
But seriously;
Being a nerd, I always related to sci-fi and D'n'D greg, and two more only makes it better.
this was also the first teen girl squad in a while (sort of) and the first toon since the tenthennial to show Strong Bad writing it, the ending was purely amazing.
This is just an addition to today, as already, this has been my best day ever. Thanks TBC!
I give it: A small turkey full of Rice Krispies.

I do take umbrage with the description of "Open Source Greg" as a warez d00d and cracker. Also, Bittorent isn't used entirely for theft, there are legitimate uses as well.

The warez/piracy part doesn't make sense for an open source fanboy anyway; they wouldn't pirate commercial software because they just plain wouldn't ever use it! But he's also the only computer-related personality of the bunch, and somebody had to do IT.*

It was great. I loved the Japanese Culture Greg randomly throwing in various anime/manga terms.

Btw, am I the only one who thought it was being drawn on a Magna-Doodle at first? I've never even heard of special tabletop roleplaying octagon paper. XD

I didn't know what it was at first. Strong Bad must've stolen that paper from Strong Sad to make his comic more... about nerds.

ffft japanese culture greg
"But the concession stand is just some booster clubOKASAN."
He personifies everything that other animanga fans hate, it's brilliant.
Also I am rather disturbed that I understood the other three Gregs despite not D&Ding or hacking.

TBC needs to make more toons with singular appeal to their internet fanbase!

Anyone try going to tompkins.tv? It links back to the toon and its Wiki page.


Hmm...seeing as it has the same background, which would've been nearly impossible to rip off the actual toon, and it has the same font and drawing style that TBC use, it makes you wonder...they obviously know we are here...they might actually read these posts.

Anyway, onto the toon itself, the ending was hilarious! I loved how the two comic strips started going back and forth and eventually making Strong Bad flip out.

Actually, it'd be quite easy to "rip off" the toon with a decompiler. I made a What's Her Face video through use of a decompiler, MS Paint, and Windows Movie Maker which looks just like an official toon (though all still-framey).

tompkins.tv is just a fan site, not something TBC made. The images on it aren't even vectors; they're just PNGs. It's really easy to make PNGs from a normal screenshot.

I like it when TBC throws a twist like this on one of their existing series. I wonder if this is going to become a recurring thing like HREmails, or if it's just a one-off. You really never can tell.

I like how all the Gregs have the same voice, and it only just occurred to me that all the Teen Girl Squad girls have the same voice too.

Pretty good (especially the ending with the Teen Girl Squad, 4 Gregs, & Strong Bad). Still waiting for sbemails, so I give 4 Gregs.....

Whoa, that thing is totally awesome! Did you actually do the voices for that, or is there some sort of TGS Voice Synthesizer program out there somewhere?

Random idea: Sack Girl Squad. Prolly not work, as TGS is 2-D, LBP is 3-D, and besides, they'd look WEiRD made of materials like Polystyrene and Rubber. Maybe some Decal...ing...

Anyway, I gotta get back to my homework. I learned how to do comparitive and superlative sentences in Japanese today, and obviously tonight's homework is about that kind of thing.
Holy crap how did that vague relation to JCG get in my post?

To elaborate on the above post, just in case it's not clear, "i think i have a chance with this guy" is from Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits.

Finally, a TGS spin-off! It totally rocked. Can't say any more than that.

Call me Gregette. I'm nerd/geek enough to affiliate myself with all but Scifi Greg. I especially liked the "Haxxored! Ow! All my client!" part.

Eh. Not that funny, and seemed to last too long. The ending made up for it, though.

3 outta 5.

When I first saw it I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't a sbemail. But when I saw it a second time with my brother, we both laughed throughout the whole thing. Very clever stuff there ^_^ 5/5

I don't think I will miss SBMails if we keep Strong Bad and his style going. It will be all right. HREmails I don't care as much for Every once in a while is OK. But I wouldn't want to see it as a weekly thing.

I'm glad SB hasn't left us. I only just finished watching all the toons on the site, and was surprised to see this toon was posted only two days ago.

Is it just me or did the style of paper they used remind anyone of the Magna Doodle? Did anyone here play with one of those as a kid?

Anyway, I loved Japanese Culture Greg. And who was that girl with Cheerleader? I call her the "You Have Been Chosen Girl" because of her first line. I think she's The Ugly One's cousin XD

Yep, I identify with all 5 Gregs, including the furry math geek "regular Greg".. though my weakest link would probably be D n' D Greg. I even resemble Open Source Greg RL ;3

Awesome toon <nitpick>though on the umpteenth viewing I'm wondering if small bits of it weren't somehow rushed. The greg's theme in the bkg stays a little too loud for too long. That sort of thing. ;3</nitpick>

Am I totally crazy, or does the song in the beginning of this toon sound like it's being performed by the Ugly One? I mean, all the girls of TGS sound remarkably the same, but there's still some hint of distinction to their voices.

There's no way to prove it really, but Uggs seems to have a deeper, gutteral voice compared to the rest, so it just sounds like her.
