I found this a long time ago, but this is the first time since then that I've bothered to look for it. (and it took me the better part of an hour to do so) This is the last one I remember reading. http://badasshistory.com/hayha.html
I LOVE Awkward Zombie! Would you believe that it was the first web comic I ever read? And as far as Oblivion goes, I always raise the hell out of my strength so that I can carry as much stuff as possible.(because I am a complete pack rat in that game)
Both sequels are awesome. Gears 2 gave us Horde mode, which to be truthful is about the only thing that really keep it from declining, in which you fight wave after wave of Locust. Gears 3 gives us improved Versus and Horde modes and also gives us Beast mode where you are the Locust. And that's just the general multiplayer. The stories in both games are pretty kick ass. If you ever get them (which might be a bit tricky if you're going to rent them from redbox) and have Xbox Live, I'd love to play with you.
