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 ...

His Most Recent Superpower
Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '10 at 11:45 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Bayonetta's shape - I almost hesitate to call this impossible contraption a "body" - is striking. I don't mean that as a euphemism for appealing. I mean that the ideas which inform it actually pound the mind, repeatedly, like a truncheon. Even though the comic deals specifically with boobs, boobs which have earned their WTF from Juggs University, her silhouette (as a general construction) is too thoughtful to be dismissed as mere titillation. Things in this game tend to happen very quickly, as you might have seen, but if you're paying attention there something to meditate on in virtually every ...

PA is Hiring
Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '10 at 11:00 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
The stars have aligned once again my friends. Penny Arcade is hiring and this time we need an artist! You can find the job listing and all the details right here. The basic idea is that we need another designer to work under Kiko. Check out the job listing and see if you have the necessary skills. You might also take a look at episode 3 of the PATV series to see if our office environment is the sort of place you'd like to work. -Gabe out

Bayonetta Contest (Repost)
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '10 at 01:00 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
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 is a grotesque fact of the modern world that we literally cannot believe our eyes. We can retain the elegance and beauty of the old ritual, though, by verifying the truth of it via Achievements and Trophies. The contest is thus: upon defeating ...

Apologies to Joe Mad
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '10 at 01:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I've gotten a lot of requests for a larger version of the first panel from today's comic. I'm glad you guys liked it so much but I can't take too much credit for it. I think I did a fair job of aping Joe Mad's style, but if you think it's a cool picture, then you should really check out his work. Click on the image above for a nice big version. Luke Plunkett over at Kotaku called Darksiders a "Creative Mess" In his review and laments Joe Madureira's input. This statement alone is enough to make me think that ...

Child's Play Episode Of PA: The Series
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '10 at 11:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
It's only the first part, there are two total, but here you go. We don't spend a lot of time cataloging how incredible Child's Play actually is - as I've said before, we take Santa Claus as the model. Appear, improve lives, and retreat. These episodes are a chance to celebrate it, though. We hope you enjoy it. The final total was $1,780,870.40. Congratulations on another incredible year. (CW)TB

A New Kind Of Truth
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '10 at 11:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The Wii was either "innovative" or "gimmicky," depending on your perspective, an evergreen topic that still springs up now and again. There is a similar cleave between things that are Homage and things that are Derivative, though this one can get complicated quick. In such scenarios, it's nice to have a quick rule of thumb to sunder any lingering ambiguities. We brought Darksiders back to the office with Bayonetta at lunch, on the assumption that Bayonetta would occupy the afternoon, and Darksiders has instead demanded every spare moment we've had for the last several days. As Vigil's first game, it's ...

DnD Sandbox
Posted by News Fetcher on January 06 '10 at 11:45 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
The overarching story-line of my D&D game involves my players traveling the world thwarting the machinations of Tiamat's many heads. I treat each head as a sort of self contained "season" with a beginning,middle and end. I also try and make each season different in terms of game play and storytelling. When it came time to move on to the Green Head I wanted to do something very different. Up until now my game has been on rails. I don't think that's a bad thing, in fact it has allowed me to plan out some really cinematic encounters. I was ...

A Review Of The Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on January 06 '10 at 12:45 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
You can actually play MAG now, most of the time I'd say, but it can be a harsh-ass motherfucking mistress. The vaunted 256 player modes aren't available to new players - you could be forgiven for thinking that 256 was a kind of default, since the title and these mystic numerals have been made inextricable, but there you have it. The level requirement for entry into such realms is 10, which I haven't yet secured. I estimate that it would take most people perhaps three, three and a half hours to get there, "there" being the game they thought it ...

Best Punchlines Of 2009
Posted by News Fetcher on January 04 '10 at 12:00 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Last week, when every blog took the opportunity to regurgitate a rancid, reeking mess of the year's "best" every Goddamned day, I wondered why we weren't partaking in this ritual. Those articles were barely worth reading the first time, and now they're shambling back, blind and grasping, like some headless groundskeeper? That seems like a strong play, and preferable to actual work. So,here they are: the most incisive, most poignant assertions made by the site in two-thousand and nine. If you don't remember them, maybe you were drunk. As you so often are. Drunkard. I'm as excited ...

The 4th Panel
Posted by News Fetcher on January 01 '10 at 07:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
The very first episode of our 4th Panel show went up today on PATV. This show is focused on Tycho and I writing the strip. It's much more like our Podcasts, only trimmed down quite a bit. I've already heard from lots of people asking about all the footage that gets cut from a show like this, the sort of stuff that would have been in the podcast. We have a lot of that, and I think the plan is to pack all that stuff onto the DVD when it comes out. -Gabe out
