Impetus
Posted by News Fetcher on November 22 '17 at 01:51 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I think Jeff Vogel lives pretty close to me. He’s the Spiderweb Software guy; if you like RPGs that feel like instant classics, like something unearthed, if you like the idea that there exists a kind of Strategic RPG Reserve from which our nation releases games in a time of crisis, you should try and catch up with his work. He’s also a huge smartass, so I like it a lot if I’m doing some kind of yard shit and he rolls by. This smartass quality is “strong with him,” like a Force Index, and it’s all over the things he writes. Most recently,…

The Beef Below
Posted by News Fetcher on November 20 '17 at 10:22 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Jesus! I can’t fucking get it together today. There is a tremendous amount of subconscious filing going on in the waxy, hive-like substructures of my consciousness and it’s interfering with attempts to do anything but lie in bed and watch The Punisher. Is this a recognized condition? Maybe it’s new. It’s hard to imagine that, just a couple weeks ago, I was at a supremely delicious PAX Aus and now I’m trying to integrate the entirely new PAX Unplugged into my globetrotting lifestyle. Here’s the strip from the Make-A-Strip panel,…

Happy Birthday Penny Arcade!
Posted by News Fetcher on November 20 '17 at 10:22 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I think it’s worth mentioning that Penny Arcade turned 19 years old on Saturday. All this started on November 18th 1998 which seems like ancient history at this point. I can still remember sitting in a chinese restaurant in Spokane with Kara and Jerry as he and I wrote that very first strip. Penny Arcade has changed a lot over the years but I have to say I have never been happier to go to work than in the last year or so. I’m not sure how many people can say that after working at a job for nearly 20 years but I feel incredibly fortunate that I get to do this every day. So I just want to…

It’s Got To Be Here Somewhere
Posted by News Fetcher on November 17 '17 at 07:21 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Gabe had grabbed some kind of a Starter Pack for a game called Skyforge, he didn’t know much about it but something about it had made him curious. He’s been using the Xbox One X with some regularity, maybe it’s that. If you have a new piece of hardware you’re always trying to test it out. I opened the website for the game and saw a unique individual at the top. I don’t know exactly what’s going on with this guy, let’s see if we can figure it out. His stomach is… a mouth. I think that’s the best way of putting…

Late Capitalism
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '17 at 12:12 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I was never going to buy Star Wars: Battlefront II. I honestly can’t believe the graphics, in an era where good graphics are commonplace Battlefront has always been doing something nobody else was; a photorealistic take on the worlds and characters of the franchise. It’s a stunning technical achievement which frosts a cake that I. not especially fond of. The strip is a joke, obviously, but that doesn’t mean it’s not bearing the occasional globule of liquid truth. Grob grabbed the game long before it was out because he’d read the novel tie in and…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Gabe wanted to know what I’d been playing lately, and I couldn’t think of anything except Elder Scrolls: Legends. That’s because I was formulating the query incorrectly. I was looking for memories where visual field was equal to computer desk, or perhaps vf=television, and not coming up with a whole lot. Then I thought about the Switch, and all the missing time spooled out. Picross. Odyssey. Has Been. Super Beat Sports with Ronia, because we gotta get those hats. I’ve been playing Doom on there a little bit too, in single and in…

A Double-Edged Khopesh
Posted by News Fetcher on November 10 '17 at 02:41 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I would be pretty embarrassed if I tried to electroplate my populist credentials by railing against microtransactions, but then every time there’s a new set of skins from one of the same fucking boxes I breathlessly worshipped it or did a gallery. I don’t have some kind of hard and fast rule about them as a class of purchase; some publishers use them poorly, some are more reasonable. Sometimes I buy them like I would junk food, in a moment of weakness. Like, if I go to the grocery story drunk, I buy different things. Especially at the end, in the dangerous vortex…

The Avengers
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '17 at 11:52 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Working a sense of a larger world into single player experiences is always something I’m keen on, even if the ways it tends to happen fit into some very specific boxes. I still want to see it at least considered because eventually it’s going to lead to something rad. Gabriel was telling me about how Assassin’s Creed: Origins handles it and then we made a strip! This happens a lot, I would say. Twenty years, give or take. I was a buy every year Assassin’s Creed fan, fuckin’… Preorder that shit kinda guy up until Unity. …

The Xbox One X
Posted by News Fetcher on November 06 '17 at 11:43 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
The Xbox One did not win me over this console generation. I’ve said a lot of bad things about the console since it came out, although suggesting that playing an Xbox One during pregnancy is dangerous to the fetus, might be the worst. I’ve made no secret about the fact that I play all my games on the PS4, that I’ve really enjoyed the PS4 Pro and that I’ve actually outfitted my entire family with Playstations so that we can all play together. A few years earlier I was a huge Xbox 360 fan and refused to even touch a PS3 controller. I was ready to love the Xbox One but it ended up being a…

Nine Tenths
Posted by News Fetcher on November 06 '17 at 11:43 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Monsieur Gabrille got home from Aus sooner than I did; he’d beaten Super Mario Odyssey by the time I’d even started it. I had a fantasy that I’d begin my journey on the way home, but I had Picross on there, and… I had Picross on there. If you have the sickness, I needn’t say more. And if you don’t, you might not see how a grid with some numbers by it could take precedence over a new Mario game. I woke up very, very sick yesterday, which gave me an opportunity to finally start it up. I feel like a team of men a railroad spike into…

Fundamentals
Posted by News Fetcher on November 03 '17 at 04:21 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
He really spoke these words and then immediately started laughing. “That’s probably a strip,” he said. When I meet interesting people at a PAX, something that happens with great frequency, I often ask them if they’ve considered putting up a panel. Then, they ask me how they can do that, surprised that such a thing is possible. I’ll extend all the same information to you now that I extend to them: while we have many panels that are PAX staples, culturally speaking, that describes a relatively small percentage of the total roster. All you…
