I was going to say something about how they usually include comics that aren't normally about games, but I actually couldn't find any recent examples. They do sometimes, but apparently not as much as I thought.

And yeah, I doubt that Field and Stream reports on it every time someone says they're going to take a shotgun approach*. My point wasn't so much that I appreciate the attitude as that I don't see this particular post as being outside their MO. Which now that I write it out I realize that I'm saying "It's worse than that. They basically do shit like this all the time."

*We should start writing articles like that about video games. Like an article for a celebrity gossip rag that gushes about how a game mentioned Brad Pitt or something.
