I’m not a streamer guy. I don’t like having a camera pointed at my drooling grimace for hours while I stumble through a game. With that said, I am very excited about a stream I have planned for tomorrow. Gabe (who is 14 now) has been learning Python at school and decided he wanted to try and re create Space Invaders as a summer project. He asked me if I could make some artwork for it and pretty soon we were designing a game. Our game is called Too Many Doves and features one Jim Darkmagic. Gabe went to work on the code and I drew him some placeholder artwork so he could test getting…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
There is a very long but also very interesting session of Parliament where a person from EA talks about what it is they actually sell when they sell loot boxes. Generally, if you listen long enough, people will tell you everything about themselves. They will tell you things they don’t want anyone to know. Not necessarily in words. They might talk around it; they might omit something they want you to believe is unimportant. They create the linguistic equivalent of lost wax casting - a little hole in the narrative so obvious that its entire shape can be seen. But…

Ride Or Die
Posted by News Fetcher on June 21 '19 at 01:10 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Apparently they gave “the doc” a month’s suspension, which is… illuminating? We ask the question in the strip: what, precisely, is required to see something akin to action. They couldn’t make it a week, obviously. I think they recognized that would be the same as revelling with him in that reeking pisshole. There are surprisingly few levers with which to shape streamer behavior, though; it’s either “hated exile” or Scion Seated At The Right Hand Of God. YouTube has a few knobs in this department, but YouTube has…

The Hollow Ones
Posted by News Fetcher on June 19 '19 at 09:10 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
There’s a term called Programmer Art that generally elicits a chuckle when used in the proper context. It’s not really an insult, but it does recognize and bring to the fore the idea that people who are good at one thing aren’t necessarily good at other things, which is just… true. It’s probably not worth getting too mad about that. I’ve met a lot of people who aren’t even good at one thing; I’ve only been alive for forty years or so but in my own experience competence is not the norm. (Our own Jeff Sellak used to work at Nintendo,…

Invisible Touch

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Nintendo letting somebody have The Legend Of Zelda to just… play around in probably deserves its own rhetorical excursion, but this is of a piece with the Switch being such a natural home for indies anyway. On a couple recent releases, I’ve seen game launch on the Switch first - or launch on Switch and PC. It’s a shocking result, but I think it tells you where indies are making money today. Gabriel suffered mightily at the hands of Cadence of Hyrule, to the extent that he died on the second screen, but I don’t see any reason to fuck with him here. The…

Compromise

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
There is a streamer who goes by the name DrDisrespect and if you follow this sort of thing at all you know his deal. As a professional asshole myself, I see the waves of opprobrium generated by this cadre perhaps in a unique context. There is sometimes a difference of opinion, I think, between the platforms and the viewers about who and what they want to see on the screen. Platform holders and the prim hall monitors who observe this industry seem to want more or less the same thing: anodyne human billboards upon which can be projected millions upon millions of dollars in…

Reposting, for the reasons outlined in the first paragraph. Also: it fucking comes out next week! Order NOW, as they say on television. I am always surprised when I learn that somebody missed something of ours, but it’s not actually a surprise to any conscious being - I don’t promote the stuff we do as much as I could. Generally it’s because I don’t want to annoy you. But too many people worked too hard on it for too long for me to allow my usual horseshit. At root: in concert with Wizards of the Coast, the home of Dungeons and Dragons, we have…

Density 2

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
The first quarter, round March - the period this website has referred to as Gamer Christmas - has become so suffused with content it may be impossible to reach minimum safe distance. Ultimately it’s about science, which for most modern people is about science fiction, which is itself about balls of flame and ships drawn inexorably toward their expanding maw - the cosmic inverse of creation. I thought we might hear more about the rumored new hardware platforms, but Nintendo used their Nintendo Direct yesterday to just remind people how Joy works. Luigi’s Mansion: Dark…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I completely understand why publishers and platform holders like streaming - they’d love it if you couldn’t own anything. If you want a vision of the future, imagine a freemium game played on a streaming platform forever. Eventually one of these Beasts Spoken Of In The Book Of Revelation is going to coin the term “Streamium” and it will be like horn that signals the Earth’s final hour. I’m just not doing any of this shit. The only one of these streaming things that doesn’t make me do that convulsive sort of cat/hairball thing…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Whenever I see a “leaked video” with “confidential” across it filmed shakily a couple feet from the screen, especially around E3 I think a very specific thing. I think that if they turned the phone around, or simply changed to the front facing camera, we would see the lead designer. I’m not even mad about it. I think that if leaks aren’t part of your strategy you’re probably doing something wrong. I look at leaked video for games I don’t give any kind of shit about. A motherfucker gets tantalized by the illicit. If…

Gabriel is stocking up for an increasingly elaborate Stream Excursion, having recently found the serrated edge where streaming from the same box you’re playing on ceases to be an authentic option. What’s more, he’d been using the Very Small Stream Deck from El Gato, which I think they officially call the Stream Deck Mini, and determined that once he was trying to run a stream with multiple overlays designed to incorporate the whole family Six Buttons was perilously close to No Buttons. I suggested that perhaps the Stream Deck Mobile app might give him some…
