Duplicity
Posted by News Fetcher on July 13 '10 at 11:30 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
When Christian Bale was recorded in the middle of some kind of aggressive territorial display, we queued it up expressly to be titillated but ultimately came away sympathetic. It's possible that every moment of his "presentation" won't be to your liking, but as someone who attempts to communicate for a living (and also, as someone who is married to an actor) that shit isn't exactly a joke. Actors are incredibly weird people, they tap into a pervasive band of shamanic data, and when they're tuning in some kind of anguished spirit you probably just want to stay the fuck away ...

Our Partial Future
Posted by News Fetcher on July 12 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I don't know exactly how prevalent "Sony Style" stores are. I know of exactly one in my town, and one in another town. If you have one close, if such a thing exists, you should certainly make it a point to penetrate their outer defenses and watch their astounding 3D demo reel. I've seen plenty of demos for 3D televisions, really quite a lot of them, and they've never managed to accomplish what this one did. I watched it fully three times through. Glasses were limited, which mean that husbands would wear them while wives knit their brows. Like Feminist ...

Blizzard Partially Retreats
Posted by News Fetcher on July 09 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
As seen here. You should be careful about any kind of celebration, though: the third paragraph tells you why. They're still tying incredibly useful Battle.net functionality to it, so this is the Public Relations equivalent of Aikido. (Aikido is a martial art that leverages your opponent's natural momentum. Trust me, it's an incredible analogy.) (CW)TB

The Grim Curriculum
Posted by News Fetcher on July 08 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Blizzard's RealID thing didn't make any sense to me, but that's because I was relying on the official message to get a sense of it's purpose. It's a much more straightforward when you read the article at USAToday's Game Hunters entitled "Blizzard and Facebook's friendly social networking deal launches with 'StarCraft II'." If I thought I could top this comment over at MetaFilter, I would do so. I can't. The RealID thing is a bad idea that won't work. If it were merely a bad idea, or merely wouldn't work, maybe there'd be something in it. Accountability is crucial - ...

The Butcher's Bill, Part Two
Posted by News Fetcher on July 07 '10 at 01:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Oh, I remember what we were talking about, prior to our dark fugue: Laurell K. Hamilton. Okay, yeah. That explains all this, then. You're safe, now; these are the only comics in this theme. You're safe. When Cliff Bleszinski says that shooters are the future of RPGs, he's not wrong; late, but not wrong. The original Modern Warfare is as much an RPG as any other game that toils under that yoke. Play it, and tell me it's not: you earn levels and equip items, customizing your character along three distinct trees. In the sequel, even your Goddamned perks level ...

The Butcher's Bill, Part One
Posted by News Fetcher on July 04 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Gabriel and I were talking, about something - I forget what - when we fell into a black slumber. Through the sludge of our waking stupor, we discovered that not one but two comics had been written and produced. Here is the first; prepare to be progressively harrowed. Still thinking about Horde. No, not that Horde, but if we're watching Kirk Cameron videos we might as well watch the best one. Anyway, wrong Horde. I found my time with ODST's Firefight more enjoyable than most iterations of the concept, and I've tried to figure out why that might be, because ...

Twisp & Catsby in: Der Dorbelgorbel
Posted by News Fetcher on July 01 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
We put the word out - technically, a chirp - regarding what people might like to see in a comic. That is a rare request, truly, but while we're out of town for the Fourph of July you might as well get an approximation of what you actually want. Twisp & Catsby were the winners by far, followed by Annarchy and Div, though there was also a pronounced Wil Wheaton contingent(!). Sometimes, though, we don't get what we want. Case in point: I suggested to Gabriel that we execute on a "Broodax on Fraternity Row" type scenario, called either "Dudax" ...

D&D in the Elemental Chaos part 2
Posted by News Fetcher on June 30 '10 at 09:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
In my last news post I talked about how I actually built the planets for my Elemental Chaos encounter. In this post I’ll talk a little bit about the actual mechanics of the fight. Tycho and I went and got some lunch and I explained what I wanted to do. The two of us ended up building an encounter that my players really had a good time with. You can see the basic structure in the photos. I had the ice planet and the fire planet on opposite ends of the table. In the middle of them was a small ...

Incredible Savings

By from Penny Arcade:
It never ceases to amaze me how much better at this Sony is. This is something Microsoft doesn't understand well, to the extent they understand it at all, and before I continue here I want to establish something up front. What you and I are doing right now is looking directly at each company's character sheet: we're running assessments based on expressed and abstract capabilities. Sony is better at the game of games than Microsoft is. They're better at projecting the information they want you to know, and pruning the rest. For example: Kinect leverages ten to fifteen percent of ...

D&D in the Elemental Chaos part 1
Posted by News Fetcher on June 29 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
If you saw my Twitter last night you know that I ran a pretty crazy game of D&D. My players ended up int he Elemental Chaos, a place called the Moteswarm to be exact. I wanted to create something that would really give them the feeling of fighting on these giant elemental motes in bizarre gravity. So what I did is create a series of 3D “planets” for the encounters to take place on. The first thing I had to do was build all this stuff. I ended up settling on Styrofoam balls for my planets. I chose Styrofoam because ...
