Life in Gaming is a webcomic that personifies gaming companies created by me in a manner similar to the manga/anime Axis Powers Hetalia. It is a parody of events both new and old within the video game industry expressed through different quirky characters that represent different companies ad they go through many antics.
Nintendo is a rather quirky girl, always wanting to do things creatively and think out of the box, even if it butes her in the butt in the end. She's been around for a while, but is still considered to be just for kids by the others. As a current-gen console creator, she is part of the Big 3 that make up the console trio.
Microsoft is part of the Big 3, and probably has the rockiest relationship with the others. He likes all thing explosive and manly, but also likes a lot of TV, sports, and exercise. He's a bit of a jerk and doesn't really seem to get when he's screwing up. He's not exactly the most well-loved guy right now.
Sony is much more calm and business-like than the others in the Big 3. He plays things rather safe, and just keeps things simple with the occasional "borrowing" of ideas from his fellow comapnies. He isn't exctly the most friendly guy to be around, but he gets things done and keeps sales up.
Sega used to be part of the Big 3 and was Nintendo's rival, but eventually he fell from power and resorted to working for anybody he could. He isn't good at keeping himself steadily employed or at pumping out amazing work, but he's a nice enough guy and willing to help. He still secretly wants to be in the Big 3 again. He's usually found bumming around Nintendo's place half in spite and half in hopes of a job.
The Big 3 don't really GET PC. He (or she) never seems to talk and doesn't even seem to be worried over the console wars. He (it?) just sits back and watches the companies make fools of themselves as more gamers turn to him (her?!). Tends t creep out some people with his (I give up) soullessness and eerie screen...
A natural genius, albeit a bit nerdy, Valve seems to always have a plan. He acts like PC's right hand man and seems to be secretly condescending to the others. He is obsessed with science. He also seems to be wearing a different type of hat every time people see him...
Old man Atari was part of the Big 3 with Nintendo and Sega. Even back then, he didn't get all the fancy new technology that gaming was introducing. He likes things simple and old-fashioned, always ready with a "when I was a boy" speech for any given scenario. He pretends to not like the new gaming scene, but he can't help but trying to keep up with everyone else sometimes.
The sinister Electronic Arts is widely hated for his devious ways. Whether it's always-online or hardly adapting his games, EA always have an evil plan to TAKE OVER THE WORLD...or at least its wallets. The most people can do is tolerate this guy (except Microsoft, who thinks he's a cool bro). He perhaps is a little TOO fond of sports.
Capcom has become a bit of a jerk over the years. He doesn't really care about the backlash he always seems to get for his questionable practices. However, it's hard for people to argue with his efficiency. They don't really like to admit it when he actually does something right. His leather jacket says "DLC" on the back.
Rareware, or "Rare" as her friends call her, used to be Nintendo's spunky and innovative best friend in the old days. She helped Nintendo out a lot, and the two were almost unseperable. But after Microsoft bought Rare's contract, her former success has plummeted. She's stuck with making sports and Kinect games at Microsoft's place, looking for an opportunity to finally get the creative juices flowing again. Her relationship with Nintendo's a little strained nowadays, unfortunately.
I hope you enjoy!
