Mr. Kojima, Game Director from the 5th Dimension

I feel kind of bad for Hideo Kojima that we keep using him as a punchline for our strips.  Buuut not bad enough to not do the strip.  Kojima kind of has a mischievous streak in him doesn't he?  He seems to like to create these elaborate deceptions with his games.  Most recently, it was revealed that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros and the seemingly unrelated the Phantom Pain were the same game. (Though, to be fair, many, many people guessed that they would be.)  But looking back at some of his other games, he kept Raiden a secret up until the release of Metal Gear Solid 2.  And arguably his greatest trick on all of us... saying that he's done with the Metal Gear franchise after each game. 
 
Not that I mind.  I'm a huge fan of surprises.  In this day and age where we want to know everything as it's happening, it's nice to be surprised every once in a while.  Even if it is for something as innocuous as a videogame.

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.
