Paging Robert Frost
Posted by News Fetcher on October 19 '18 at 11:51 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Gabe oscillates at two to three times my rate when it comes to a hunger for technological novelty. I’m not without the hunger entirely, it’s just that I don’t… Hm. I don’t see it? I can read a comic book without ever looking at the pictures. It drives him nuts. I don’t need them, though, and they’re not why I was reading it. It’s like this with tech also: I have a purpose, and the device enables the purpose, but the middle section is like the second step of a sequence that culminates in Profit. There…

Real Flavor

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Once, when we were streaming the creation of the strip on The Tweatch, it came up that beaver assholes are a prized font of delicious vanilla flavor. Which is sort of true. Let’s break it down: 1. It’s not the asshole. It’s some other holes right by the asshole. Is that better? Who knows. 2. Squeezing beaver ass every time you want something to taste like vanilla is super inefficient, which is why it’s almost never used for this purpose anyway. Is that better? Who knows. In any event, the rigid, fragrant anal rods we excrete…

Boat Tooth Syndrome
Posted by News Fetcher on October 15 '18 at 01:10 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I keep meaning to check what the percentages are of people who played through the Call of Duty campaigns, but I don’t really have to, because I’ve bought a few of these and interacted with them in precisely the way Black Ops 4 suggests I did: by going directly to the multiplayer mode. Or pehaps more appropriately, “modes.” I was hanging out with Acquisitions Intoxicated brewmaster Eric Benson over the weekend, and he hadn’t played a “cod” in a minute so I made sure to remedy this fact. If you’ve been away, as he had been, this is a…

Lexcalibur Might Sell Out Over The Weekend

That’s what it looks like, anyway. It’s really a lot for me to take in. But, yeah: might be a good time to grab a copy, in the format of your choosing. (CW)TB

Prime Demo

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Making parties seemed to be all kindsa fucked up for me last night, at least on Xbox, and I don’t know if it was some kinda NAT horseshit or launch day jitters or what, but I wasn’t able to party up with people I played the beta (“beeta”) with just fine. We were eventually able to hack the planet, so to speak, by joining the game the other person was in and then beating the odds several times over as it kept us in the same party all night. I have questions. And theories. But God damn it, once we were in the chute being hustled from map to map, gaining…

LEXCALIBUR Second Printing Is In!
Posted by News Fetcher on October 11 '18 at 10:30 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
So, my first volume of original poetry - full title, Lexcalibur: Useful Poetry For Adventurers Above And Below The World - sold out very quickly. The elevator pitch is “What If Shel Silverstein were your Dungeon Master” and it has thus far been apt. The reprint is in, hopefully enough to sate the apparently frenzied desire that accompanied the first one - there are a few ways to own it, so take a look at the official page. The designers really wanted to offer a kid’s shirt to go along with it, and the chose the art from the poem Sword of My Fathers which is a…

The Cockpit
Posted by News Fetcher on October 10 '18 at 10:30 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Probably the most relaxing night of gaming I’ve encountered in recent memory was forming a Convoy - anywhere else but Forza Horizon, it would be called a Squad/Group/Fireteam - and just… driving around. Racing when we felt like it. Doing a seasonal Barn Find when it came up. As a template for winding down the day, it was almost flawless. I did switch to the interior camera during a race though, completely on accident, which inspired the conversation in the strip. Technically, I asked the question and Gabriel had the answer, but the assertions were the same. I…

Dissimilarity

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I haven’t really played an Assassin’s Creed game since Unity; I understand they’ve continued to make them. Syndicate predicated a pause in the franchise altogether, and when it returned, it was an RPG. More of one, anyway. It might be better to say that it returned as the kind of RPG where you want purple things more than you want blue things. Because we can never be into the same things at the same time apparently, he picked the series up when I put it down. The main change for him in the new one, and maybe other players iterating the Hero’s…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
There is a new Mario Party, and apparently it’s “good,” but Mario Party is almost a genre unto itself and as a thus may be considered an exemplar in a self-defined context. Rhetorically, it’s a sundered condition. But! It’s fast and crazy, and bright, and gravitational in a way, like a Welcome Sign. People who are actually good at games don’t necessarily like operating in contexts that don’t recognize their virtues. Or, as sometimes happens, games simply arrive at the wrong time. It might not be for everybody, but I think…

There is a lot about the Horizon Festival that probably seems very good at the time, but will eventually lead the kind of televised documentary with a lot of scary music that often flashes between full color and black and white very quickly. As a videogame, fully ensconced within a simulation that cannot spill into a world where mortals share the roads with it, it’s… hm. I’ve only played it on an Xbox One X, on the kind of television that understands things like HDR and 4k, and it’s difficult to describe it without resorting to hyperbole. (A sidenote. Being…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I almost never play games on phones anymore, unless I’m on a plane and it’s literally all I have with me. The last one I investigated deeply was Paladins Strike, which is not new by any means, and that was only because I happened to be into other Hi-Rez shit at the time and Michael can be very convincing. It was cool, but requires Internet, which makes the primary usage case questionable for me. A lot of phone games require Internet, even if you think they wouldn’t, or shouldn’t necessarily given the content, but here we are. Keek and Gabe play all…
