Castle Ravenloft
Posted by News Fetcher on September 14 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I have had the opportunity to play the new Castle Ravenloft board game a handful of times now and I’m very impressed. We brought it over to a friends house the other night and played it with someone who had never even touched a D20 before. She listened to us discuss all the ways that it was similar to D&D 4e and then asked why we would play this board game instead of just playing normal Dungeons and Dragons. I thought that was a really good question and coming up with an answer made me realise why I like the ...

The Policy

This is essentially how I feel about Halo. I can probably count on one hand the number of discrete rounds I've played alone. It would be like eating a pizza alone. I've done that, too; not much there to be proud of. The implication is there in the world, direct: the jeep has three seats, and you let them go fallow at your peril. Reading over the reviews, I see it's still important to get your kicks in on ODST, even in a review of Reach, even though ODST remains a more robust narrative effort. Reach has segments that sing, ...

The Eighth Attraction
Posted by News Fetcher on September 10 '10 at 03:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions knows what it is, and doesn't try to convince you otherwise: it's fanservice, served neat in a highball glass. The contextual jumping can feell raw, the camera sometimes makes poor life choices, and the year 2099 is so dense with stimuli that a person from 2010 can hardly make sense of it. It's also genuinely funny, not every now and then but often, which is a rare thing. Is it perfect? No. Does it have Spider-Man in it? Yes. Four times! That's way more than most games. Completing challenges and collecting things gives you "Spider Essence" which ...

More Penny Arcade Stuffs

By from Penny Arcade:
There was new Penny Arcade Television last week, but some stuff came up, and I forgot to link it. So here it is: VG Fack Checkerz, from our people at Mega64. There is also new Precipice available. I had written it ahead of time, but I was so out of sorts that the thought of navigating our update scheme and putting that shit in there put me into a coma from which I've only just recovered.

The Trenches
Posted by News Fetcher on September 08 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Obviously the biggest announcement of PAX this year was Duke Nukem Forever. There was another announcement though that you might have missed. During our very first Q&A of the show we took the stage with Scott Kurtz to announce a brand new comic strip called the Trenches. This will be a thrice weekly webcomic that will appear on its own site. It is written by Tycho, myself and Scott. The bulk of the art duties will be handled by Scott with a little help from me. I have to say that collaborating with Scott on the character designs and the ...

The Wager

By from Penny Arcade:
Frequently during panels at the Penny Arcade Expo our own Gabriel will receive compliments on his work. This is as it should be; the visual leap between the first strips and today's thrice-weekly offering is so absolute as to bring the true authorship of the earlier comics into question. You may click here for a harrowing, educational juxtaposition. Anytime there is a PAX, the Discrete Joy Events (or "DJEs") become crystallized into a single, spherical glorb - and the process of fully remembering the event takes weeks. It's the reverse of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, where during the normal prosecution of ...

By from Penny Arcade:
You might recall that during the last PAX on the west coast, I had to leave because (much to my great surprise) a human being was trying to emerge from my wife. I've have used the "nation" metaphor for PAX on multiple occasions, and it's a comparison with value - like Brigadoon, it is a fleeting kingdom. Born during the event proper, she is its princess - and all of PAX her shining court. Here is the strip we made during Saturday's "Create-A-Strip" panel, with our Signing Rules that you may have heard from our own mouths. Like all our ...

Mouth Rituals Exposed
Posted by News Fetcher on September 02 '10 at 11:30 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
It's pretty incredible where young people draw the line between which which things are impossible and things which are made possible by inexplicable magicks. People living in a space station, right now over our heads, clearly that's not true. But a tiny flying person at the helm of some tooth based economy is a thingquickly absorbed. Our conversation about magic and mystery had a sub-conversation about other kinds of magic: specifically, Epic Citadel. I don't know that I've ever been so flummoxed by a piece of technology in my life. I was impressed by the id's RAGE demo, obviously - ...

The Ultimatum
Posted by News Fetcher on September 01 '10 at 11:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
We kept thinking about the Xbox Live price hike as the week went on, trying to divine its purpose, and came up with a big ol' goose egg. And a comic, I guess. And I ordered a big stack of cut-rate 12 month cards. But other than that, no. Well, get more money, I guess. That part is relatively straightforward. I think the strip more or less communicates the guts of it. The friends list represents an organism that you have tended over X years, nearly eight in my case, and has a value independent of the expenditure the way ...

Remove Sandals (0/2)

By from Penny Arcade:
The Bible Online, right? Where has this thing been? As a setting, we've emphasized on multiple occasions that the Bible is woefully underutilized. Once you start looking at the book from a gaming perspective, the genres jump right off the fucking page. Obviously, Exodus - the period covered by the game - should be an MMO. Jonah? Adventure. Samson is an Action RPG - he literally equips a weapon mid-narrative. David? JRPG. Armageddon? Tactics. Dead Sea Scrolls? CCG. Song of Solomon? Dating sim. Revelations? Survival horror. It just doesn't stop. There's plenty of weird stuff in there, certainly; I imagine ...
