Breaking It Down
Posted by News Fetcher on August 13 '10 at 10:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Reaction to Wednesday's comic fell, conveniently for my purpose, into two camps: those who found a phrase like "raped by dickwolves" a stunning return to form, and those who felt that we were somehow advocating the actual rape of human beings. It sounds as though we've already satisfied the first camp, but an effort should certainly be made to assuage the latter. Immediately after PAX East, which is to say the very next day, before the last leg of a book tour that would strip my mind of the knack for contiguous thought, we went to Irrational Games briefly to ...

Tragedy is when I cut my finger.
Posted by News Fetcher on August 13 '10 at 09:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
What surprised me most about some of the reactions to our Dickwolf joke was not that people were offended. But that this was the comic that offended them. In each case the emails I got started with something like “I’ve been a long time fan” or “Been reading the comic for years...” and then they go into how this particular comic really bothered them. I just don’t understand that. Did the comics about bestiality, suicide, murder, pedophilia, and torture not bother them? Or how about the fruit fucker? I mean, we have a character who is a literal rapist. What ...

The Sixth Slave
Posted by News Fetcher on August 10 '10 at 11:00 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Something that is discussed with some frequency around here is how the quickly an MMO reverts to its default state, ready for the next bus-full of level appropriate tourists to do whatever that zone desperately requires. Whenever something happens outside this cycle - like WoW's phasing (which gets fairly elaborate by the time Cataclysm rolls around) or a dynamic party matching up against a tough public quest in WAR - it's exhilarating. And then you go collect your hooves. Gabriel told me about a quest he'd done, thought it might make a good comic, and I'm of the opinion that ...

In Too Deep
Posted by News Fetcher on August 09 '10 at 11:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
There are multiple ways to watch Inception, just as there are multiple ways to see it. It has that "movie-as-game" process of narrative detangling that you get with Memento (also by Nolan) or Primer. Gabriel resisted investigating the ideas of the film initially, and while that isn't necessarily courageous Inception is a movie that can work under those conditions. It didn't last long: soon, my inbox was playing host to links of a spoilerian nature and lowercase treatises commingling lucid dreaming, Zoroastrian prophecy, and the secret menu from In-N-Out Burger. Looking over the Monday Night Combat review at Joystiq (the ...

The Reptile Of Choice
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Gabriel finished his last book during the San Diego trip, and so he's been on the prowl for a new one, which is always a dangerous time. The last one managed to combine: 1. Interstellar Warfare 2. Time Travel 3. Gay Sex and 4. Heterosexual Prison-Worlds, so the bar for thematic density is fairly high at this point. It was in this vagabond state that he stumbled into a new Weis & Hickman book called Dragonships, having enjoyed their prior dragon-related efforts, though you have to admit that these people have maybe cranked the bucket down into the dragon well ...

The Armageddon Doctrine
Posted by News Fetcher on August 04 '10 at 11:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Did you know that there was a time when our website played host to comics of a "humorous" nature, japes of a merry sort, which dealt with popular culture in general and electronic games in particular? Return with me, friends, to those ancient times. The truth is even more savage, and brutal, and savage: we're considering a bump to a single medium opponent. I have written a will. I know I'll play through the rest of the campaign at some point, but whenever I sit down to the PC it's just not what I want to do. I mean, I ...

We're Closing Down The Store (Not Forever!)
Posted by News Fetcher on August 02 '10 at 10:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
We decided to get our own warehouse up here in Seattle, for lots of reasons, but primarily to have after-hours shootouts with The Triads. Brian and Robert are heading down to Austin next week to pick up all the stuff and move it up, but while they are in transit, you can take advantage of INCREDIBLE SAVINGS! The store closes down on the 6th - yes, in like four days - but if you enter the code mov1ng when you check out, you'll get ten percent off everything you buy.I didn't mean for that second part to be bolded, that ...

Blood And Oil, Part Five
Posted by News Fetcher on August 02 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
The Blood and Oil have finally run out in this, the fifth chapter. What a tremendous amount of fun that was, and we must all thank Ben Caldwell for drawing it and Gary Whitta for writing it. It's rare that Gabriel and I get a chance to "read" Penny Arcade along with actual readers, but we had no preview really of what was about to hit the site on this project. It was exhilarating, and it helped us understand how interesting Automata could be. When something just falls out of your head, as things tend to do around here, we ...

Child's Play And PATV Stuff
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '10 at 11:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Child's Play is incredibly vast, so vast that - even though Gabriel and I ostensibly created it - it extends far beyond our influence. That's how it had to be: in order for it to endure, it needs its own strength. But it's still surprising for me to realize the extent of its autonomy sometimes. The toy drive used to be the focus, but Child's Play is a banner now for a broad array of charitable impulses. For example. Gears of War is soliciting feedback on a story point - namely, whether or not this game's Carmine will survive. You ...

Blood And Oil, Part Four
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Blood And Oil. Part Four. One more to go. I met a guy from DigiPen many years ago - eventually he quit the school, but found his way into the industry regardless. Before meeting him, I thought that Starcraft was a game where you built up your defenses and then teched up to the weird shit and then fought your opponent in the middle of the map somewhere. Watching him play that game - a game I owned, and played, and thought I knew - practically ruined the genre for me. I wouldn't see shit like that again until the ...
