Pokémorality
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '11 at 12:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I don't think it's too bad a spoiler to say that the new Pokemon game - the new Pokemon game, for God's sake - asks questions about the franchise itself at a fundamental level. Yeah, it does it in way which tracks with the continuum of Pokemania, and as robust as its core mechanism is, these games must make themselves available to the young. Even so, it's rare. It's a rare game that has the pluck to question its own thesis even while it is actively enslaving you with same. The only other one that comes readily to mind is ...

DA2+
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '11 at 03:00 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
When I was writing it, this is what I kept thinking about: all the times in DA where you pull back out of a combat to some kind of dialogue sequence, often one that had some humor in it, and everybody is joking, even though they are covered from head to toe in fucking blood. It was a fun tone. (CW)TB

Dragon Age 2
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '11 at 02:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Page 1 of our new Dragon Age 2 comic is live over on the DA2 page. This is just a quick three page story that will introduce you to a couple of the main characters. I had a lot of fun drawing this for a couple reasons. First Bioware has delivered some truly incredible character designs with this game. I got a folder full of concept art that I just drooled over for hours. My biggest gripe with the last game was that the characters and to some extent the environments looked kind of boring. That’s simply not ...

PAX East
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '11 at 10:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
PAX East is only a week away. Despite the much larger venue, it looks like we will once again be looking at a sold out event. There’s only 150 Friday badges left and about 400 Sunday. These will be gone before the show though, so don’t expect to walk in and buy a pass. If you want to go, get you tickets now. If you are coming to PAX East here are some tips: - You can grab the conventionist app for the iPhone or Android and get the entire PAX East guide right in the palm of your hand. ...

By from Penny Arcade:
PAX East grows ever nearer, it's super near right now, and our dutiful JavaScript clock is returning a value that seems almost impossible. Maybe it is impossible. Maybe each of my fingers is an undulating shrimp! It's a world of possibilities. It's also a world of challenges unique to my psychological profile. Might be a good time to get The Conventionist on your phone, so that you can in engage in a kind of guided meditation. Gird your fantasies of the event with a few convincing, factual contours. 5th Cell is local, and they invited us out to play ...

Something To Consider
Posted by News Fetcher on March 02 '11 at 10:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Your choice of Pokemon games mostly comes down to whether or not you want Reshiram or Zekrom. Clearly, Zekrom is the right choice. Even more than usual, though, the whole experience actually comes from having access to someone playing the opposite cart. Scott came by when we were writing, and was curious about the whole Pokemon thing, and the attendant Pokemania. In his mind, he assumed that he would be at a tremendous disadvantage trying to figure this shit out now. What had he missed? We told him, as I tell you now, that there's no reason to avoid Pokemon ...

Beauty And Another Kind Of Beauty
Posted by News Fetcher on February 28 '11 at 12:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
It was an act of will to keep from cocking my head at the Beastly trailer, which Gabriel queued up while laughing through his nose. Eventually I had to use my hands to maintain a neutral orientation, but then the urge to knit a scornful brow nudged its way through and everything fell apart. Ugly has received a significant downgrade, or perhaps an upgrade; maybe it depends on what you're trying to determine. If you're trying to determine if Ugly is a word with a reliable meaning, I might suggest the former. This "monster" looks like a fairly regular person ...

Space Beans, Red Racers
Posted by News Fetcher on February 25 '11 at 10:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Gabriel was trying to tell me about his Smurf Town, and how many Smurfs were there, or something. I was given to understand that there were "hella" Smurfs, almost perpetually "up in." I also learned that, like most freemium lures which writhe and flash on the hook, it has a potentially brutal microtransactional backend whose thorny roots grow into its very heart. Apparently, these "Smurfberries" make your Smurfs work their asses off, and stay up real late, and war with androgynous Shadow Men, and to avoid mirrors. Games of this kind really know how to get their barbs in; my ...

What's Past Is Prologue
Posted by News Fetcher on February 23 '11 at 11:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I've been reading Jane McGonigal's Reality Is Broken, and some of the things she says track very closely with the way things work in my own sphere. I am trained - intensely trained - to fail and select retry, that is to say, to iterate, and I can't tell you how much that conditioning helps when you're trying to teach someone to do something when they have no cultural frame of reference, a low threshold for frustration, and an annoying tendency to repeat every Goddamned thing you say in a sing-song, munchkin-like register. Gabriel had to leave early yesterday to ...

Side Effects
Posted by News Fetcher on February 21 '11 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I certainly appreciate everyone sending me tips on gaining weight and building muscle. Tycho’s story was from a few years ago though and I really don’t have that problem anymore. I wish I could say that I committed to a daily exercise routine or something but that’s not the case. Warning. I am about to share entirely too much personal information with you. A while back I started taking the miracle drug Lexipro for my chronic anxiety. My doctor explained that there were a few side effects I might experience. One was weight gain and the other was that it ...

A Campaign Of Perpetual Psychic Warfare
Posted by News Fetcher on February 21 '11 at 12:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
It's crucial to abuse Gabriel lest he get airs, to make him chase phantoms and spirits, to ride his anguish, howling like a pirate in the rigging. Real-Life Gabriel had the exact opposite of the typical problem, though, and I would have thought it was the opposite of a problem at all (that is to say, great!) if I hadn't seen it for myself: he thought he didn't have enough weight. He thought he didn't have enough weight. I didn't know that was a thing yet. I thought that would be like not having enough scorpions, as though there were ...
