Here's Your Reality Program
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '10 at 03:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
You may know that Sony is putting together a reality show where human beings caper for our amusement. That's regular stuff. But the prize they're competing for - a testing position - is, to be clear, not the sort of thing one competes for. We know a lot of testers. Testing is an umbrella term in the gaming industry, and isn't entirely sufficient as a descriptor. My friend Clinton did "testing" at Microsoft on the original Xbox, and this testing involved him opening and closing the system's drive tray all day. He just got back from Iraq, but if I ...

Rapidly Pressing The Button Beneath The Counter
Posted by News Fetcher on January 22 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I got my Zune a few days before the iPhone was announced. It was a smartly manifested little brick to be sure, its combination of brown and green oddly compelling, but the iPhone represented an object so profound that multiple industries were warped by its mere proximity. You could hate the company utterly, vomiting at the sight of their vile and bitten crest, and thenstill tumble to this assertion's fundamental truth: that their portable computer, which is also a phone and a bunch of other shit, changed the world. Now they want to make a really big version of it, ...

PAX East Is Going To Sell Out
Posted by News Fetcher on January 20 '10 at 11:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Part of the reason we opened the Eastern Front of this convention was to relieve some of the pressure on the PAX Prime, but the show has its own momentum, and it's barrelling toward Bostom with full force. What this means is that if you want to attend PAX East at the end of March, you should preregister now. We're already looking into an expanded venue for next year - we saw at a couple solid candidates when we were out there originally, so that's already being managed. In the meantime, though, yes. You want to preregister. That ...

Sandbox D&D
Posted by News Fetcher on January 20 '10 at 11:00 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I mentioned a while ago that I was pushing my D&D game into a new direction, that being more of a sandbox style adventure. I also said I'd answer your questions about it and now that I've got three games under my belt I feel like I can do that. Q. Are you running the game completely sandbox, just making things up as you go along, or do you have some kind of plan with regards to what kinds of encounters the players might face, what the next hexes out might look like, and so on? A. I got this ...

De La Musique
Posted by News Fetcher on January 20 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The Rock Band Network - a vector for gameplay authorship that recalibrates the rhythm title as a democratic platform - is imminent, if not available at this very moment. The idea behind it is fairly substantial, particularly on consoles, where as a rule user generated content is either impossible, thoroughly circumscribed, or considered a breach of the user agreement. There are exceptions, certainly. Well, maybe there are exception. I like it because it's a good, smart thing to do - but I want to know if this is something that will matter for musicians. And when I say "matter," I'm ...

Fundamental Assertions
Posted by News Fetcher on January 18 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
It falls to us to explain some pretty elemental shit on occasion, a task I relish. The version I gave my own son was (for lack of a better term) rendered at a substantially higher resolution. I have been trying to discern exactly why I have warmed so to my Avatar on the 360, why I like him and want the best for him. Something Avatars have over their Home counterparts is that they exist as a part of the base experience - I don't need to "go" somewhere to see it. This means that items purchased for them fall ...

A Trend We Wholly Endorse
Posted by News Fetcher on January 15 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We had originally read that a new printing of Dante's Inferno was a "novelization," which implies that the game had been turned into a novel, which is untrue: the truth is actually much weirder. Tie-ins (particularly for Visceral Games, whose Dead Space could be considered a broad-spectrum new media template) would be utterly normal, dog-bites-man stuff, with a pH of seven exactly. What they are actually doing is reprinting the seven century old poem, appending game assets, and then sheathing the whole thing in game-specific branding. Maybe it isn't entirely forthright, putting a crusader badass the cover of your medieval ...

Bayonetta Contest, AGAIN
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '10 at 02:15 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
(I wanted to get this in front of you again, in case you were a recent convert to the game. We've had a great response so far, but I want to make sure that all of Kiko's awesome shirts find a good home.) I used to love looking in game magazines for those photos people used to send in, pictures of the screen itself or the player in front of the screen, showing off a newly minted high score in the way our primitive forebears might have displayed some horned carcass. Of course, such images may be altered now: it ...

PAX 2009 DVD Set
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '10 at 11:45 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I'm pleased to announce that the PAX 2009 DVD set is now available and more importantly, it's fucking awesome. It is so awesome in fact that this will likely be the last PAX DVD we make. This 6 disk set encompasses the PAX experience so completely and so well that there is simply no reason to make any more. You should hit the sotre link for a more complete breakdown of what's on these disks, but here is a quick look: - $39.99 - 6 discs - Done by the same crew (2 player productions) that is doing Penny Arcade: ...

I mentioned Monday that we are looking to hire a designer here at PA but I neglected to mention that you only have until Sunday the 17th to get your resume in. You can find all the details about the job right here. We are looking for someone with crazy design skills who doesn't mind working in a wretched hive of scum and villainy. -Gabe out

A Comprehensive Education
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '10 at 12:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
My cohort's education is always foremost in my mind, but in the past I've typically resorted to misdirections that (once discovered) set the project back substantially. This time - and I recognize that this is strange - I am actually taking his predilections into account. Before, I would have flopped a book like The Fifth Head of Cerberus onto his Intuos and said "eat this, dog." I'm taking a different tack now, a breadcrumb trail, so that his mind is starving at the end of each book, and into that ravenous mind I will continuously heap works of burning fire ...
