Hindsight
Posted by News Fetcher on October 28 '10 at 01:00 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
We’ve done a lot of work for Bioware in the past and for Dragon Age 2 they actually had us create an in-game item. It’s a magical belt called Hindsight that automatically gains a resistance to whatever type of damage killed its last owner. So when wearing it you still die but the belt learns and the next person who wears it won’t die from the same thing. We made a motion comic explaining a bit about the history of the belt and you can check it out over on the DA site. Be sure and hit their site to ...

Sand comic
Posted by News Fetcher on October 27 '10 at 10:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Like Tycho said we are going to deliver three one page treatments and ask you to vote on your favorite again. The last time we did this we got Lookouts and Automata. Tycho mentioned that both of these ideas are going on to bigger and better things outside the confines of the comic. I wish I could say more about what is happening with these projects but both are still in the early stages and I don’t want to jinx anything. Our first new offering is Sand, a comic that we’ve been kicking around for more than fifteen years. It’s ...

A Policy Of Conscious Aggression
Posted by News Fetcher on October 24 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
The sloth of today's game designers is revolting. What is the biggest innovation in the last six years of aggregated shooting? Literally, it is the ability to cower. Gears of War 3 lets players press A to snivel behind a topiary. By 2012, your emasculation will be the new normal mapping. 5th Cell - creators of Lock's Quest, Drawn To Life, and the original Scribblenauts - seek to break this cycle, with the bullet point to end all bullet points. Super Scribblenauts features (and I am not joking about this/why would I joke about this) the ability to use adjectives. ...

A Traditional Form
Posted by News Fetcher on October 22 '10 at 09:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Gabe had an idea for a comic, and after a nominal attempt to make three panels out of it, it seemed to fit more naturally into the single-panel "classy comic" style found in the New Yorker or the Playboy issues which I absolutely never read as a young man. (An anecdote: as a younger man, but not necessarily "young" by any objective standard, I had a driving phase. For some reason, I felt as though it was vitally important that I drive for hours and hours without apparent purpose. This phase was accompanied by thrice-dubbed cassettes from such youth-fuel outfits ...

Last Day To Preorder The DVD
Posted by News Fetcher on October 20 '10 at 10:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Just like it says! Any of the preorders we receive will be signed by the office, and there's two thousand preordered so far, so that's a pretty full day already. If you're interested though, of you would simply like to hasten our development of carpal tunnel syndrome, here's the link. (CW)TB

quick thoughts on some games
Posted by News Fetcher on October 20 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I have been playing a lot of different games lately and I figured I should take a minute and share some thoughts. Video Games! Kirby’s Epic Yarn - If you have a Wii this is a must own game. It might even be reason enough to get a Wii if you don’t already have one. It is a fantastic platform game, especially with two people playing cooperatively. It is also one of the most beautiful games I have ever played. You really owe it to yourself to check it out. Castlevania Lords of Shadow- This is a game that really ...

That Constant Refrain
Posted by News Fetcher on October 20 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
We haven't gotten around to talking about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow yet, but it ain't for lack of love. In fact, it'sfair to say that this thing has rendered us more or less speechless. MercurySteam's previous game, Jericho, wouldn't indicate that a project like Lords of Shadow was forthcoming. It should be emphasized that I liked Jericho, even if I couldn't recommend it, for all the reasons I laid out back in 2007 - at least a million years ago, as the Internet reckons time. Novel mechanics and rock-solid worldbuilding were in evidence though; if the studio survived, I wondered ...

Wool On The Horizon
Posted by News Fetcher on October 18 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Kirby's Epic Yarn is effective, not merely as an electronic entertainment product but also as a time machine. Videogames often have "physics" of one kind or another, but they're "big" physics - huge men staggering through marble, the wake of their rage and obliteration sending hunks of their world in all directions. It's no exaggeration to say that you'll be shocked by what this game does, on this tiny, computationally insignificant machine, to create a story that takes place in a living storybook. It's one thing to see war ravaged stone or superconducting alien alloys, we may approximate them in ...

A Medically Recognized Condition
Posted by News Fetcher on October 15 '10 at 12:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Having sons means (among other things) that we can buy things "for" those sons that we might not purchase for ourselves. I think Invizimals probably fits somewhere into that scheme. It's an Augmented Reality game, like EyePet let's say, but it's distinctly unlike EyePet in that is actually Pokemon. This is pretty crafty shit, and if I were the right age (which I'd say was 5-8) it would be ridiculously, almost dangerously compelling. In Pokemon, you make a dude and he runs around and collects dangerous animals. In Invizimals, you literally are the person who catches monsters, invisible ones, with ...
