I Get All the Memes Now! 09/24/2011

by Joe

I just picked up Portal on Steam and beat it :D What an amazing game! The story was short, but it was executed so beautifully, I didn’t mind how short it was. Actually, I don’t think I would’ve wanted it to be longer. It ended perfectly, I think! The story also inspires me to work on the machines of The Pocalypse :D

Now I know what “The cake is a lie” is all about now! I always knew it was from Portal, but now I understand it :D I’m really looking forward to picking up Portal 2, but first I have some Team Fortress 2 to try out, since it’s just collecting digital dust in my hard drive. I’ll be on Steam from time to time, so feel free to join The Pocalypse’s Steam group and help teach a noob how to play TF2 :D

Enjoy Scene 18 – “Not Him”!

Please continue to vote and get yourself a Cubert wallpaper! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS, too!

Keep playing BlockHopper beta and please keep sending us feedback! Thanks for playing! :D

Have a great weekend!

She? How many elders in the colony do we have?

I also recommend the Half-Life series. It’s long, hasn’t been completed, but it’s still amazing :D

Yoinkinator on September 24, 2011 at 4:23 pm

Did you finish the credits in portal it was good!

Spectrite21 on September 24, 2011 at 4:41 pm

…Rosa must have infected them.

sh4d0wfl4re on September 24, 2011 at 4:48 pm

yay the 4 :) but this was a good episode

raikue on September 24, 2011 at 5:03 pm

Oh, I was actually first that time!

I also recommend Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Rated the scariest game of 2011 for a reason, but oh so awesome. Also gives you boasting rights for playing what is possibly the scariest game of all time :)

Yoinkinator on September 24, 2011 at 5:11 pm

@Yoinkinator I think Amnesia is just overrated to be scary, so everyone thinks it is without actually playing it. I mean, it is scary, but I doubt it’s the scariest game of 2011.

Sweet_Ride on September 24, 2011 at 7:48 pm

Lol yeah Joe portal 1 was perfect though i havent played portal 2 yet i hope its amazing also. oh and also the only logical reason for *she* is ofcourse Rosa but the tricky part is WHY did she do it.I mean she saied se doesnt feel the thirst so what revenge or something?

Dagzter on September 24, 2011 at 8:00 pm

I’d say you should try Doom 1-3.Doom 1 and 2 are a bit aged but still great games.

Futureal on September 24, 2011 at 8:27 pm

We can climb the window out.

pete on September 24, 2011 at 9:03 pm

@pete – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! (Not sure if you intended to show me a typo, but as I kept repeating the line to myself, it made less and less sense :D)

Joe on September 24, 2011 at 9:10 pm

Nah, the elder infected them. I think he told the soldier to say she to throw Bernie off his scent and to make him doubt Rosa.

Spider on September 24, 2011 at 9:18 pm

could just be that the “she” referred to is another vampire and probably the same from the blood farm scene given the text so odds are not rosa but a vampire that has yet to be revealed, and one who thinks bernie is important for some reason(possibly to improve their emp weapon to be more effective?)

nightarix on September 24, 2011 at 9:30 pm

Apartment C-5? Shit! I don’t want to know what IRONY happened in apartment C-4

LegendaryAsshole on September 24, 2011 at 9:59 pm

Apartment C-5?! :O I ONLY HAVE 7 HOURS TO LIVE!

Nick on September 24, 2011 at 11:11 pm

Maybe “she” is someone Bernie knows… once. She must have told him about Scott’s Dad’s mystery room.

Shade Person on September 25, 2011 at 12:25 am

Ohhh that makes sense like elder made the soldier vampires but since Rosa is already like a pro at that dream world stuff so that she is kinda superior to other just normal vampires .I know that all vampires can access the dream world but Rosa is already much more experienced so she can kinda like command or force them if she needs to.

Dagzter on September 25, 2011 at 1:35 am

@Shade Person
Your right, that’s not rosa mind talking, plus i don’t think rosa is strong enough yet to do that. in any case, good observation! To joe, thumbs up by me XD

Decifer on September 25, 2011 at 2:31 am

Rosa doesn’t know that vampires are raiding the colony

Decifer on September 25, 2011 at 2:33 am

Uh… the Elder is male or female?

Keter on September 25, 2011 at 2:55 am

the elder’s name is Dominik so he is a man

alpha on September 25, 2011 at 4:38 am

Ok… I’m starting to get confused…

NeoWarrior on September 25, 2011 at 4:40 am

it cannot be rosa… The voice has said “you don’t deserve it, abomination”. That’s not Rosa’s way to speak, maybe another elder (a female elder) discovered that dominik had been captured (not infected) and has come to save him, for whatever reason, but after discovering so many abominations, has decided to use them to finish something (still have to find out so many things)… Or Rosa has an Inner Rosa.

Blues on September 25, 2011 at 5:12 am

The Elder is a Thai ladyboy? Could happen.

Norman D. Landings on September 25, 2011 at 5:32 am

Maybe “she” is the voice

Erik on September 25, 2011 at 9:41 am

Sounds like Rosa gave in too the feeding urge
Only if we had Joe and his headband right now…

lurker on September 25, 2011 at 10:19 am

Theory: Bernie’s mother… She could also explain the “theory-fact” that Bernie’s dad is a vampiric Executioner… Boy! Bernie has a whole family of vampires!!!!!

NeoWarrior on September 25, 2011 at 11:25 am


hypnokrit on September 25, 2011 at 3:42 pm

@hypnokrit – ALL OF THEM! :D Except for all that My Little Pony stuff. Someone fill me in on that, please.

Joe on September 25, 2011 at 4:01 pm

ooooh :O

frida on September 25, 2011 at 4:15 pm

ahhh that was the female elder bernie shot once he was at the church or somewhere there^^

Some Guy From Germany on September 25, 2011 at 8:24 pm

I’m surprised no one has mentioned that a few strips ago the Elder left the lab and probably started feeding on people.

lukeape on September 25, 2011 at 10:49 pm

@Joe People just like My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic. You should watch it sometime :P

Bill on September 26, 2011 at 2:01 am

@NeoWarrior: That was my first thought!
And all of you thinking this is Rosa… Shame on you.

EmoKirby on September 26, 2011 at 5:37 am

Hey Joe, I sent you a friend invite on steam. I’ve got something in lieu of a donation.

Aethrys on September 26, 2011 at 1:51 pm

TF2 is a hat simulator. I’ll give you some to start it off.

Me, Myself and I on September 26, 2011 at 11:11 pm

@NeoWarrior: Exactly what I was thinking U.u
Probably Bernie’s mother was kidnapped by zombies & bitten,but maybe vampires attacked and infected Bernie’s mother. So the two virus battled together,and here your new zombpire is! By the way,I don’t think Bernie’s father is a vampire. Mostly,the LEADER of the vampires. The vampires got all the strength to take over New Hammerston,and yet they didn’t attack. The fear of Obliteration can’t be such to ignore the thirst. That explains,too,why there are the blood farms: Bernie’s father not wanting to see humans die to feed his ‘people’? Maybe Bernie’s father is half vampire,and has gained control of the vampire without being drained because of that. Maybe,an half-vampire doesn’t have the thirst and the weakness to sunlight ( losing some positive attributes vampires got )?

P.S. This was my longest comment yet.

Happy Vampire on September 27, 2011 at 2:11 am

^ And probably the longest of The Pocalypse? I don’t know.

Happy Vampire on September 27, 2011 at 2:11 am

Oh,by the way,who’s the shadowy figure on the logo? Doesn’t seem Andrius.

Happy Vampire on September 27, 2011 at 2:12 am

@Happy Vampire Its definitely not meant to be a surprise. :O

Nick on September 27, 2011 at 8:37 pm

@Happy Vampire I’m pretty sure the shadowy person on the logo is Andrius from the start of the Pocalypse when he was in the jail cell.

Zombie Killer on September 27, 2011 at 10:25 pm

yae earlier I kinda meant a Dominic mind controlled or mind form of Rosa. (cause if your the locked up vampire you want a scapegoat)
It was obviously not Rosa’s words there, particularly since Rosa isn’t in town!
(I hoped people would guess this sort of thing by now…. not the adding of Bernie’s Vampy parents, that the other vampires’ want DEAD)

sh4d0wfl4re on September 28, 2011 at 3:48 am

@HappyValentine-> I’m pretty sure the Counsil of Vampire Elders said that the Executioner wouldn’t kill Bernie because he wouldn’t hurt his son… Just after the bloodfarm incident… So, he is definitely NOT the leader of the vampires… Besides, it is always stated that Vampires are led by a Queen and her loyal Nobles(Dracula for example)…

NeoWarrior on September 28, 2011 at 6:24 am

@NeoWarrior im pretty sure Dracula was a man :D

Dagzter on September 28, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Dominik infected them, but since Rosa has zompire powers – zombie looks, she can command them.

Anon on September 28, 2011 at 10:31 pm

Please, don’t use the name of Dracula talking about modern vampire societies (i mean, does who have appeared in TV and films in the last ten years or so). If we take the original myth of Dracula, we could say that he had no Queen (at least a Queen who would give him orders) but a King (The Devil).

Blues on September 28, 2011 at 10:49 pm

Dagzter-> Dracula is an example of a Noble… Read carefully before commenting…

Blues-> The Devil can be used for either male or female damned creatures, so it could mean King or Queen…

NeoWarrior on September 29, 2011 at 3:37 am

On the topic of rosa dominating the lesser vampires-she might have had nothing to do with their existence, but is stronger of mind than them. It’s possible she’s dominating them (perhaps without realizing it) to protect her friends, as much as she can.

Some Guy on September 29, 2011 at 7:24 am

Someguy-> but she wouldn’t tell them to kill the kid whose mother she took away, would she? I sincerily doubt it…

NeoWarrior on September 29, 2011 at 8:38 am

@NeoWarrior I’m Happy VAMPIRE,not Happy Valentine. >:I

Happy Vampire on September 29, 2011 at 10:34 pm

Sorry! Misread!

NeoWarrior on September 29, 2011 at 10:50 pm

TF2 Instructions: Shoot. EVERYTHING. Even your own team, those traitorous spies.
