Gabe: Today’s strip was another that I did live on Twitch. I happened to draw this one on Monday which is when Tycho and Ryan do their new Hearthstone stream. You can watch me do all the sketching and most of the inking in this one: Watch live video from on www.twitch.tv Then I took a break while they played some Hearthstone. The idea is that Ryan is teaching Tycho how to play Hearthstone and it must be working. I actually came in and challenged Tycho to try and win back control of the Twitch channel a little early but I got wrecked. Watch live video from on www.twitch.tv I ended up…

We’ve played Shadow of Mordor: Game of the Year Edition (GOTYE…?) the last couple times.  It’s not new or…
