Not really obvious. Unless the joke is that there is no obvious joke.

How could you possibly find this joke anything BUT obvious?!

Nethack is RogueI understand the business, I hear it: to have an open ear, a
quick eye, and a nimble hand, is necessary for a cut-purse; a
good nose is requisite also, to smell out work for the other
senses. I see this is the time that the unjust man doth
thrive. <...> The prince himself is about a piece of iniquity,
stealing away from his father with his clog at his heels: if
I thought it were a piece of honesty to acquaint the king
withal, I would not do't: I hold it the more knavery to
conceal it; and therein am I constant to my profession.

If you're finding this to be bad, remember that it continues from the previous two comics.

Oh, and that blank comment above was mineMade by Dwarfs. The Rule here is that the Mine is either long
deserted or at most is inhabited by a few survivors who will
make confused claims to have been driven out/decimated by humans/
other Dwarfs/Minions of the Dark Lord. Inhabited or not, this
Mine will be very complex, with many levels of galleries,
beautifully carved and engineered. What was being mined here
is not always evident, but at least some of the time it will
appear to have been Jewels, since it is customary to find
unwanted emeralds, etc., still embedded in the rock of the
walls. Metal will also be present, but only when made up into
armor and weapons (_wondrous_).

When you drag a joke concept out over several iterations like this, the custom is to end on a version that somehow refers to this repetition. One method is to imply that the author is scraping the bottom of the barrel, such as using a "duh" example like this, which suggests he has run out of insightful (i.e. non-obvious) obsevations.

Fairly well executed, I'd say.

A recreational game roguelike NetHack is.

With this word order I either like Yoda or a German sound.

(though I'd have preferred it without the "Now that's pretty obvious, isn't it?" - a simple "Nethack is like RogueI understand the business, I hear it: to have an open ear, a

Anyone who didn't predict this comic from the start of the "Nethack is like ..." series is really clueless. Dogley's comment describes the situation perfectly.

(I'm not assigning an E, though, because the joke was TOO obvious. You'll have to settle for G.)

OK, there's no way that 26 different people thought that this comic was mediocre. Who's been messing with the ratings?
