Poker Night At The Inventory
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '10 at 02:30 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
I really like games from Telltale, so there wasn't a tremendous amount of deliberation when they asked to use Tycho in their new Poker Game Thingy. Tycho as a character is the straight man, generally speaking, so at a table with so many strong personalities he's generally just sort of happy to be there. Unless he's losing. I have a lot of experience with that branch of the dialogue; hopefully you'll fare better. (CW)TB

Full Circle
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '10 at 12:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
We believe, like every cognizant being, that progenitors should arbitrate the media consumption of the organisms they create. In other words, parents should parent. One sees this sentiment everywhere. As an axiom, it's incredibly compact. As a life edict, especially for enthusiasts of interactive media, it's somewhat more complex. I'm curious to what extent a bias against electronic play exists. I'll show you what I mean: This is how Gabriel the Younger invests his leisure hours - in the construction and demolition of imaginary worlds. You can't tell me, or at any rate I will refuse to hear, that this ...

My take on Kinect
Posted by News Fetcher on November 05 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
It’s pretty obvious that Kinect is not for me. Chances are if you’re reading this it’s not for you either. Like Sony with the Move, Microsoft has decided to set their sights on those Wii loving casual gamers. The only difference is that while Sony has made at least some concessions to the hardcore it doesn’t seem like Microsoft has. The Move is great when it comes to interacting with 3D space. It’s ability to track the remote and overlay graphics that you can manipulate is fucking uncanny. That said, it is a terrible pointing device. I Try playing a ...

Power Word
Posted by News Fetcher on November 05 '10 at 12:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Our experience with Kinect voice commands was odd, powerful, almost unsettling. This is incredibly interesting as a piece of technology, and as a means of instructing technology to do what we want it to. You will have a variety of experiences with this device, some of which are truly fascinating, some of which don't work entirely, and some of which will make you believe every terrible thing you have read on the Internet is true. We've tried a bunch of games here at the office, a lot of games, and what becomes clear very quickly is that every developer seems ...

By from Penny Arcade:
Intel is giving away a huge pile of Shank-related stuff, including literal copies of the game Shank for the PC, and you can get your share of the aforementioned by heading over here and "entering to win" (as they say). (CW)TB

Pipe Cleaners, Reimagined
Posted by News Fetcher on November 03 '10 at 09:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
When you're first learning a wargame, you might fudge some stuff. Maybe every model isn't, for lack of a better term, "painted." A styrofoam cup might do double duty as a hillock. This usually happens until it drives somebody so nuts that they flip out and get crafty. We saw some fairly gross (in this context, gross actually means "really great" for some reason) terrain at PAX Prime, tiny squares of ravaged countryside so confident in their construction that you'd imagine there is a tiny world somewhere with a three foot by three foot square of it gone missing. I ...

Voting for your favorite

By from Penny Arcade:
Our weblord Erik is currently on vacation. He’ll get back later this week and we will put up a voting page. Until then re-read the strips and give it some thought. Each one has a larger story that we’d be happy to tell. -Gabe out

Queen Of Bells
Posted by News Fetcher on November 01 '10 at 10:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
A long time ago, I made a song in the game Jam Sessions called My Belruel. The song is more or less about falling in love with your in-game character, but it's part of a larger story framework that already has several more songs to its credit. It's somewhat elaborate, but given Gabriel's execution today on Queen of Bells I think we're up to it. Would you like to learn more about this young woman? It can be simply arranged. So, that is the balance of our offering: Queen of Bells, The New Kid, and Sand. We have no opinion ...

Hindsight again
Posted by News Fetcher on October 29 '10 at 09:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
In case you missed it yesterday I just wanted to re-post this. 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 ...

The New Kid comic
Posted by News Fetcher on October 29 '10 at 09:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Being the new kid is hard, being the new kid in a school full of aliens is harder. Tycho mentioned that this one could be the biggest thing we ever do and I think he’s right. My fantasy is to see Dreamworks, Disney or Nickelodeon make an animated feature or a Saturday morning cartoon out of this one. Who knows maybe they will see it and give me a call! I’m working on the third and final idea today. This last one will go up on Monday and then it will be time to vote. I hope you guys are ...

The New Kid
Posted by News Fetcher on October 28 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Today's idea: The New Kid. It was The New Kid that catalyzed this round of offerings, and I think that (under the right conditions) The New Kid as it is presently conceived could be the biggest thing we ever do. Agree? Disagree? One more concept to go; when the voting booth goes up, let us know. We came into the office the other day to find that our television was missing, which was sad, because we often use that device to display visual information. We asked Robert what had happened to it, and he said that it was gone; when ...
