Have you ever wanted to work in video games? Well that's what the guys at GameBizCo Inc. do. Literally.

Join the cast of Another Videogame Webcomic as we peek behind the curtain to see what exactly goes into bringing your favorite video games to the small screen. It may be a job in video games, but it's still a job.

E3 2012

So is it just me or was E3 this year a little Ellen Page heavy? (As opposed to other years, which featured no Ellen Page.)  I'm looking forward to Beyond: Two Souls, not just because of Ellen Page, but also because it's from the makers of Heavy Rain.  Those are about the only two things I know about the game, but I'm on board. I only hope that Quantic Dream's next effort can spawn memes as good as Press X to Jason

I'm not sure what to think of the WiiU.  Some of the features seem intriguing, but none of them are intriguing enough for me to buy it right away. It appears as though Nintendo has a lot of third party support for their new console, but am I really going to play through Arkham City again with slightly updated controls?  Is there anyone out there who would buy a console for a game that has already been out for a year (or possibly more)by the time the WiiU comes out? 

Microsoft's SmartGlass looks like a version of the WiiU's gamepad, except you have to buy a smartphone or tablet instead of a controller.  But so far, Microsoft has showed more applications for their technology than just games. (Though, technically, they didn't show any real application for games, just concept videos.)  I guess it's great if you already have a smartphone or tablet (odds are that you do already), but since it's always going to be an optional add-on, I don't know if it'll be widespread. 

And as excited as I was for Resident Evil 6, I'm even more excited after the announcements at E3.  Potential four player co-op is crazy!  I haven't decided if I want to splurge on the Resident Evil Anthology yet...

Player Two

After the resurgence of multiplayer co-op, GameBizCo Inc. hired Player Two to be the Goose to someone else's Maverick. His workload isn't quite as heavy as most of the other people working at GameBizCo Inc. and as a result, he spends a lot of time in the break room or playing computer solitaire.

Player One

Player One is top dog at GameBizCo Inc. Nearly every game, from Pong to Mario Bros to Grand Theft Auto, requires Player One's expertise. His cocksure and sometimes inappropriate attitude is an annoyance to his coworkers but seeing as every game needs a first player, they make due.
First Appearance: Bonus Stage! Here comes Player One!

Damsel I. Distress

Whether it be a castle, a dungeon or mystical island, Damsel always needs to be saved... and she hates it. Damsel longs for the day when she's given the role of a strong female lead character who doesn't have huge breasts with hyper accurate physics.
First Appearance: LittleBIGPlanet

Final Boss

Underneath the huge brute that is Final Boss lies a timid creature who wouldn't hurt a fly. He puts on his "angry face" when throwing barrels down ramps or breathing fire but deep down he feels sorry for doing so. He's been known to throw a game or two in the player's favor.
First Appearance: World Record

John Minion

John Minion, or Min for short, is the hardest working employee at GameBizCo Inc. Playing everything from Goombas to no name thugs, Min gets beat up on a daily basis but loves every minute of it. He always wanted to work in the gaming industry and was originally hired as an intern. After years of getting coffee, his big break came when someone called in sick... and the rest is history.
First Appearance: Watchmen: The End is Nigh

Middle Manager

Middle Manager works in the Human Resources department. He runs staff meetings and interviews prospective employees. The other 90% of his time is spent playing Freecell on his computer.
