The Next Generation

Cast: Annarchy, Tycho

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Annarchy and Tycho are walking through the park.}
Annarchy: All three new systems are playable at E3 this year! I have to go!
Tycho: Ann, as your uncle, I respect your youthful vigor. Eleven year-olds can't go.
Annarchy: But I'm a gamer, just like you! I'm hardcore.

Panel 2

{Tycho gets two ice creams and turns around as Annarchy puts her hands on her hips.}
Tycho: Uh-huh. Look, I'm sure you played Final Fantasy X and thought that it was really great, but X isn't just, like, a letter. It means ten. There were nine other ones.
Annarchy: I've played those.
Tycho: What, on the GBA? That's adorable.
Annarchy: {annoyed} No, on the Famicom. In the original Japanese.

Panel 3

{Tycho puts both his hands on Annarchy's shoulders and crouches down.}
Tycho: That's impressive, and actually a little scary, but you don't even have a handle yet. Real gamers have handles.
Annarchy: Annarchy. I'm Annarchy.
Tycho: Ann. Can you fit in a suitcase?
