quick thoughts on some games
Posted by News Fetcher on October 20 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I have been playing a lot of different games lately and I figured I should take a minute and share some thoughts. Video Games! Kirby’s Epic Yarn - If you have a Wii this is a must own game. It might even be reason enough to get a Wii if you don’t already have one. It is a fantastic platform game, especially with two people playing cooperatively. It is also one of the most beautiful games I have ever played. You really owe it to yourself to check it out. Castlevania Lords of Shadow- This is a game that really ...

That Constant Refrain
Posted by News Fetcher on October 20 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
We haven't gotten around to talking about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow yet, but it ain't for lack of love. In fact, it'sfair to say that this thing has rendered us more or less speechless. MercurySteam's previous game, Jericho, wouldn't indicate that a project like Lords of Shadow was forthcoming. It should be emphasized that I liked Jericho, even if I couldn't recommend it, for all the reasons I laid out back in 2007 - at least a million years ago, as the Internet reckons time. Novel mechanics and rock-solid worldbuilding were in evidence though; if the studio survived, I wondered ...

Wool On The Horizon
Posted by News Fetcher on October 18 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Kirby's Epic Yarn is effective, not merely as an electronic entertainment product but also as a time machine. Videogames often have "physics" of one kind or another, but they're "big" physics - huge men staggering through marble, the wake of their rage and obliteration sending hunks of their world in all directions. It's no exaggeration to say that you'll be shocked by what this game does, on this tiny, computationally insignificant machine, to create a story that takes place in a living storybook. It's one thing to see war ravaged stone or superconducting alien alloys, we may approximate them in ...

A Medically Recognized Condition
Posted by News Fetcher on October 15 '10 at 12:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Having sons means (among other things) that we can buy things "for" those sons that we might not purchase for ourselves. I think Invizimals probably fits somewhere into that scheme. It's an Augmented Reality game, like EyePet let's say, but it's distinctly unlike EyePet in that is actually Pokemon. This is pretty crafty shit, and if I were the right age (which I'd say was 5-8) it would be ridiculously, almost dangerously compelling. In Pokemon, you make a dude and he runs around and collects dangerous animals. In Invizimals, you literally are the person who catches monsters, invisible ones, with ...

Precipice Chapter Nine
Posted by News Fetcher on October 13 '10 at 12:45 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
More Precipice, and I'm sorry it's late. I usually write these at night, which feels appropriate, but my son, my daughter, and my wife are all sick, and when my daughter cries over the monitor it's like I've been electrocuted. I can't put any kind of thought together, let alone two thoughts, and this installment has many thoughts in sequence. (CW)TB

Gamma World
Posted by News Fetcher on October 13 '10 at 10:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I was able to purchase a copy of Gamma World from a “Premiere Store” near my house last weekend and I ran the game on Monday for my normal group. We have been playing the same campaign now with the same characters for nearly two years so this was sort of a break. I’ve spoken to all of them and we’re playing Gamma World again next Monday as well. Defeating Tiamat may have to wait a few weeks while we stomp Badders and dig through ancient junk. I had them all create characters at the table before the game and ...

More Things Than Are Dreamt Of
Posted by News Fetcher on October 13 '10 at 09:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
This one hardly needs a preface. Sometimes, the comic is word for word true. The core story in Gabe's regular Monday game is pretty heady stuff. Characters die, are reborn, mortals are an aberration, their planet is a prison, not metaphorically but physically, that kind of thing. They've been playing for two full years this Christmas, and the things they do and the forces they must contend with have tremendous heft. At what point does narrative gravity become mere weight? As a manufacturer of Narrative Gravity, it's a question I don't actually want an answer to. Every table has its ...

By from Penny Arcade:
Gabe really does have a bat! A real bat, just hangin' up in the eaves and devourin' thousands of insects every night. You might be surprised to learn how codified the process is for keeping and encouraging bats, I wasn't aware this is something one did, but I'm overjoyed to live in a world more interesting than I previously thought. There are those who find their impish faces and split noses vile, but that's not my demo. Bats are my favorite mammals by a wide margin, and yes, I'm aware that humans are mammals. I have a high opinion of ...

The Apex
Posted by News Fetcher on October 08 '10 at 09:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Cold Stone is generally a dessert, but it can also be a meal - the one by us will fold forest mushrooms, prosciutto, or Black Forest ham into gravy ice cream into a savory mass. This kind of versatility is what makes it so core to our Identity as a people. 4 Heroes Of Light has been pretty bizarre thus far. Earning, owning, and wearing hats has been just as satisfying as I imagined it would be, but you can make assumptions about the game based on its inviting art and young protagonists that are not borne out by the ...

Brian has essentially killed himself getting things going, but it's ready for you now. A few noteworthy additions, since it's been away: 1. The Matchmaker shirt. 2. Dickwolves shirt. 3. Book Bundle now includes all six compilations. Most importantly, though, we've started pre-orders for the Penny Arcade: The Series DVD. The DVD, assembled by 2 Player, has every episode of the show in addition to four unreleased 4th Panel episodes. As if that weren't enough, it includes over three hours of deleted scenes, and two commentary tracks for every episode of the main series along with English subtitles. It is, ...
