Nite Time Is The Rite Time
Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '19 at 01:51 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Fortnite was always trying to get me to add 2fa, like… a lot, but it wasn’t until Apex hit that they started pushing free Battle Passes on me. My email was full of it, and through the blinds as I was waking up I thought I saw a cloud shaped like a Fortnite entreaty. Then, when I ironically opened Tik Tok it came up at the very beginning, obscuring the e-girl factories, Senzawan permutations, and the unlikely, enduring vigor of Mia Khalifa. I heard someone whose job it was to promote games tell me that if your game isn’t near the top of Twitch, it doesn’t…

Level99 Games In the Studio
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '19 at 11:11 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
We have sponsored streams today, a couple of them more or less back to back, one for a game I own but have been too intimidated to learn and one for a game I have taught many people to play. It’s all happening on our Twitch thing. Thanks for stopping by, Level99! The first is Millennium Blades, a board game about collectible card games(?). In the fiction, a CCG - also called Millennium Blades - has been in print for over a thousand years. The game starts on pre-release night, and as the game progresses you collect cards, trade cards, enter tournaments, and try to…

Computer Stuff!
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '19 at 11:11 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
The last time I really took PC gaming seriously was honestly around the time the comic strip started. So, about twenty years ago I guess. I can still remember keeping up to date on the latest improvements in Voodoo graphics cards. As time went by I played on consoles more and more until I had fallen off the PC entirely. I usually had a laptop or something that could run a game or two but I lost track of where the technology went. About a year ago I decided I wanted to give PC gaming another try and so I bought a computer for the sole purpose of playing games. We even made a comic about it at…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
EA’s premium digital offerings - EA Access on Xbox and Origin Access on PC - grant early play for their titles. Except when it doesn’t work, and you got the same error message people were getting in the betas. I once suggested that EA games came with “free misery,” nearly ten full years ago, and it’s a policy they’ve maintained with pride. The problem isn’t with subscription services or VIP access or whatever; it’s their bits, they can apportion them however they want. And clubs are fun, I like clubs. But it also has to…

Champion Champions
Posted by News Fetcher on February 15 '19 at 12:31 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
The main new things I’ve learned about Apex Legends are as follows: one, the Wingman is the return of the old Pistol from Halo. Remember that? How it was a pistol, but also kind of a sniper rifle? Yeah. Except here there’s also a mod for it called a Skullsplitter; I’ll let you tumble to its purpose on your own. It is surprisingly, perhaps even comically effective. Two, the Ping system we already said was great is even cooler than I thought, because it works in places I never thought it could. By which I mean, the inventory…

Benifitar Also Good
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '19 at 11:11 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Gabe heard Titanfall downstairs, but on multiple axes - none of which made sense. His sons were playing multiplayer, which they were able to find enough players for somehow, and Kara was playing the single player campaign. The failure of Titanfall 2 is generally laid at the feet of Electronic Arts for not managing their stable of releases strategically, though there are many fans of the first Titanfall who’ll say - independent of any business considerations - that changes to titan shielding and vertically truncated map design didn’t help either. Either way, it’s…

Downhill

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
There was a spike of normal functionality mid-week, like one might expect from a modern city, but just as soon as we’d tasted civilization it was gone again. Brenna went shopping for the End Times, like she was stocking for a radical shift in governance from something like we have now - with established channels of authority from Federal, State, and County - to a marked declension of it centered primarily around tattooed despots with shotguns on quad bikes. It has served us well. We have already traded some Dark Meat for a few chunks of fragrant wax. As I suggest in the…

Comunicado
Posted by News Fetcher on February 08 '19 at 01:51 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I was watching Ninja stream Apex Legends this morning, and the title of the stream implied that while it had previously been a sponsored stream, he was now playing it because it’s fun. I mean, I think so too. We just made another comic about it. It’s has twice Fortnite’s viewers on Twitch since it came out, but of course that’s two-fold; the dynamics are such that you can pay a person to play your game, but you’re also paying them not to play the other game for a 2x perceptual swing bonus. I’ll be very curious to see where this is at…

Elite Deadlies
Posted by News Fetcher on February 06 '19 at 03:11 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
The only bad thing about Apex Legends is the name. And it’s… You know. It’s probably too late to change that. Since we spoke last, I have played a lot of Apex Legends. I’ve won twice, which for me is such a statistical aberration that it makes me want to look at the checksum for the last few days. But I’m actually not bad at their shooters, for some reason. Well, not some reason, a specific reason: even if there aren’t Titans, or the radical mobility pilots have even on foot, Respawn’s thesis of gunplay is the most…

Essentially

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
It finally happened: after well over a year of playing Battle Royale style games, Kiko and I were finally able to win one. We even had an audience . Of course, like all victories, this one is a catastrophe for someone - ironically, it’s me. We spent a profundity of corporate resources manufacturing a brand build entirely around failure. We even have merchandise that celebrates that failure. We could win forever, as long as we lost. And now that’s gone. What’s more, the unwelcome spike of joy brought on by an unlikely bloom of competence…
