The kids from Mac Hall are back with another fantastic comic. How do the kids evaluate all their games? Why, through a complex system of graphs and measurements that compare them to Marathon Infinity, of course.

Here's the blurb from Mac Hall that explains the comic:

Red Faction's Geo-Mod engine and its deformable landscapes are an exciting feature, and we give Volition their fully deserved props for that. But as the strip implies — and if you've played it you already know what I'm talking about — there is one facet of the game that really stands out in the gamer's mind. I'm referring to the antics your victims perform when you stick a /certain something/ to them. I tell you, I could watch those little bastards run around all day.

And I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who rates games by comparing them to the Old Masters, though the chart system might be a bit much. The more discerning gamer could substitute Marathon Red for Infinity with the addition of a "Mauled by Raptors" line on the graph.
