Mailbag
Posted by News Fetcher on May 19 '10 at 09:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
A PA reader and medic stationed just outside Baghdad sent me a mail this week asking about how I run my D&D games via Email. It just so happens that with the new baby I have not had time to run a proper game for my crew. What I decided to do instead is take them through a little adventure via Email until I'm able to get back to the table. Email can be a great way to focus on story elements in your game rather than combat. Personally I like to make my Email adventures more about decisions and ...

Day One Purchase
Posted by News Fetcher on May 19 '10 at 12:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Red Dead Redemption sat next to my keyboard all day yesterday, face down, and I frequently stole glances at the screens printed on the back. Soon, soon. I wonder if this game will see the kind of post-release attention the new Grand Theft Auto did. Next month's sees a free co-op mission pack hit, and I'm a position to savor it, but GTA4 essentially delivered full games as downloadable content. The countryside in this game just goes and goes, and goes and goes, and then goes some more. It's beyond beautiful. At the rate we're going, though, we'll chew the ...

My Pedipalps!
Posted by News Fetcher on May 17 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I am occasionally coaxed back into Azeroth, or into its battle-scarred adjunct The Outland, and each time I return to a bank full of mysterious garbage and elixir-maddened shrews. I don't know what half of that stuff is anymore, some of it is related to quests I've also forgotten, and some were almost certainly kept because they had "a cool icon." My bags are no better. They seem like someone else's bags, bulging with trinkets of questionable utility, baubles which steep in a puddle of alchemical reagents and alien produce. Open World games tend not to be terribly good investments ...

Das Printenpacken
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '10 at 02:45 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
We decided to put a few of packs together of the full-page storylines, in case you want to have ridiculously beautiful versions of stuff like Lookouts: A Boy Must Learn or Cardboard Tube Samurai: Seventh Spring. Of course, virtually every strip can be printed out direct from the high-res file - that option can be found at the bottom of almost every strip. (CW)TB

Oh No The Sun
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '10 at 12:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
We put together another Dungeons and Dragons podcast on Wednesday, this time devoted to the resurgent Dark Sun setting. This round saw me behind the DM's screen, doing my best to immolate, abrade, crush, and otherwise destroy our own Gabriel, Kris Straub, and Scott Kurtz. I spent two and half years invested in a Dark Sun campaign as a young man, and the opportunity to revel there again - if reveling is even possible in that blistered psychic wasteland - was an honor and a pleasure. I hope I was able to create in their minds the same deep curiosity ...

I am back!
Posted by News Fetcher on May 12 '10 at 08:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Well I'm back at the office after my paternity leave. It was great being home with the new baby for a couple of weeks. I have to say the second one is much easier. I don't know if he's a better baby of if I'm just a better dad. Either way there isn't nearly as much of the anxiety and uncertainty with this one. It's great because without worrying if every cry means he's dying I can really just enjoy having a little baby. I'm about to go an play some Dungeons and Dragons. We're recording a new podcast but ...

Au Lait S'il Vous Plait
Posted by News Fetcher on May 12 '10 at 12:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Scott lives up here now, and not just lives up here but works up here, and when I say "up here" I don't mean the Greater Seattle Metro Area but specifically right down the hall. If he gets hungry, and I am hungry at the same time, we can go eat lunch. Maybe that seems like some normal shit, but the stats prior to this state of affairs placed us at about one lunch per decade. Shit be trending up. If we have a pressing question about Kris Straub's penis, we can get this question answered right away. I don't ...

By from Penny Arcade:
Only three panels? No beautiful colors by Steve Hamaker? No rad letters by Erica Greco? I suppose it will have to do. Strong topic, though. Like the content. Certainly, I can vouch for the writing. Part of the reason larger-scale projects like Lookouts are more rare is because we don't have the human bandwidth to manifest such things ordinarily. But we were able to put together two weeks' worth of Lookouts stuff in about a week and a half, with no pause in our customary output. That's really exciting for me, because if you've ever seen us speak at PAX ...

A Boy Must Learn, Part Six
Posted by News Fetcher on May 07 '10 at 09:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
The last page of Lookouts: A Boy Must Learn is here. At least, for now. Next time in, sooner than later I hope, we'll deal with The Daughters. I've been surprised to see Alan Wake reviewed as well as it has been. I was able to scam a review build in exchange for Fury of Dracula, a pretty incredible trade really, as I'd probably only be playing Fury of Dracula with this guy anyhow. It's canny maneuvers like this that have made me so influential. The review copy came in a plain white sleeve, and the previews available at the ...

A Boy Must Learn, Part Five
Posted by News Fetcher on May 04 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Just two more pages of Lookouts to go, and here is the first of them. This is the fantasy equivalent of the bonus round, where all points are doubled, and the penalties for failure become progressively more grim. After the release of Doom but before we understood exactly what had happened, what we know as "first person shooters" were generally called Doom Clones. You hear the term "DOTA Clone" quite often these days, in reference to games like Demigod, but I think that ultimately we'll observe a similar arc: that DOTA's weird gumbo constitues something unique. It gets to ideas ...

A Boy Must Learn, Part Four
Posted by News Fetcher on May 02 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Lookouts? Oh, yes. There is more. I can remember being in church with my mother, where it was suggested that I ought to fear the Lord my God, and reacting like any child would - with the proprietary blend of confusion and horror that accompanies every expansion of awareness. They don't start you on the hard stuff until later, where you find out that God can ask a father to kill his son, or sometimes he'll let the devil kill your children for no good reason. That's always struck me as a tremendous messaging challenge: as an immortal being, how ...
