Machinations
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
The story in the new Splinter Cell is of the International Intrigue variety, and by the time events have reached their culmination, every serpentine bend of the quintuple cross has been revealed. It's very much a genre, with its own peculiar texture, and Conviction scrupulously charts a more personal course through those events - but there's still plenty of New World Order Shadow Conspiracy boogita-boogita to go around. I have described the role of the enthusiast community as regards the development process as curatorial, which sounds nice, and feels at least partially true. There's husbandry, also, but then you have ...

By from Penny Arcade:
Splinter Cell: Conviction has virtues, and we may even get around to discussing them, but "incessant guard dialogue" is not among them. These people never shut their Goddamned mouths. Ever. Until you shoot them. The new game's emphasis on brutal murder has been decried in some corners, but players will appreciate the ability shut four of these douchebags up simultaneously. Coverage of the game has been fascinating, though it was always going to be. They boiled the flesh off of a beloved brand, suspending strange new textures and flavors in its thematic broth. The breadth of opinion is precisely where ...

Purgatory
Posted by News Fetcher on April 13 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
I don't think I'll ever get back to Final Fantasy, now. Typically when I crush a game between my molars, making it a vessel for my rage, I eventually come to believe I have not served you to the utmost. It becomes something akin to exposure therapy, where placing myself close proximity to the hated thing results in a kind of psychological inoculation. Shortly thereafter, I tend to identify with my tormentor, "discovering" or manufacturing a series of "hidden virtues" which were previously "unvisible." When asked at PAX, I always assumed that my return was inevitable. Not only because it ...

The Ides Of Harsh
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '10 at 12:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I've been asked before why we haven't "weighed in" on the Infinity Ward/Activision lawsuit, and the main reason (I would say) is that it is exceedingly difficult to tell what is true. Know that I have a thunderhead of dark crows situated in the vicinity of every word spoken in regards to the industry, raw, jag-beaked birds, rough specimens that perch and hear - but without the documents everyone is fighting over, the whole thing is pretty maury. It became clear almost immediately that the blogs were being leveraged as forward positions in some kind of Public Relations war, ...

A Matter Of When
Posted by News Fetcher on April 09 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
It's likely situated at a point somewhere below your comment threshold, but there is a kind of holy war occurring in Star Wars canon. With the Clone Wars cartoon in its second season, and the fan-favored Mandalorians making a debut, it's important to understand that there are multiple levels of continuity - and itsdelineations are more codified than you might have thought. You might imagine of them as levels of reality, which become more pure as they ascend: C-canon refers to the Expanded Universe, where books and most games dwell. It occupies a more debased sphere than T-canon, to which ...

OD&D
Posted by News Fetcher on April 07 '10 at 10:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Many of you approached me during PAX East to thank me for the D&D news posts I make. As a DM I know how hard it can be to find inspiration some times. As long as I'm running a game I'll keep posting the crazy stuff I throw at my players. In fact, here is the latest experiment I ran on them. As so often happens in fantasy worlds, their characters stumbled across a magic artifact. This particular item when used, sent them all back in time. Here is an excerpt of the email I sent out to all of ...

By from Penny Arcade:
One deficit an electronic reader has over printed media, and this is only a factor if you've been in the air as much as we have lately, is that there are portions of the flight where you can't read. Your "book," as it were, now belongs in the same criminal class of devices which includes laptops and missile transponders. The other deficit, I suppose, is that when the device runs out of power your "book" ceases to exist. It retains the gaudy and absurd physicality so common with objects, but all the purpose has leaked out. The unbook you have ...

JJGO SHOW
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '10 at 03:00 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
So You might remember a while back we talked about our disastrous appearance on the Jordan Jesse Go Show. It was a real clusterfuck of misunderstandings, misguided expectations and just bad chemistry. I think I could probably get along with Jordan alone but the addition of Jesse was toxic. Personally I think the obvious contention makes for a pretty funny show. Jesse is not proud of it though which is not surprising. He kicks off the podcast with a disclaimer warning new listeners that this particular show is not indicative of the rest of their work. You can listen to ...

PAX Preregistration Is Open
Posted by News Fetcher on April 05 '10 at 12:45 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
We just opened it up for the west coast PAX, which we call PAX Prime internally, because we think it evokes a gigantic robot. Maybe we'll change it at some point! Maybe robots will recede from fashion, and we'll have to hitch our wagon to some new destructive force. I should emphasize that the last two shows sold out before they even opened, so if you would like to attend PAX, this might be something you want to square away. Also, Robert wanted me to tell you that the next episode of Penny Arcade: The Series went up. It is ...

Penny Arcade (by Kate Beaton)
Posted by News Fetcher on April 05 '10 at 10:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Kate Beaton is, among other things, an organism - and she's good at it. That is to say, she's good at being. She's got a ton of autonomous processes that regulate her operation, and this leaves the higher order functions free to pursue her noble endeavors. She may also be a PERVERT. It's rare that I have the kind of time it takes to wait in a gadget line anymore, but with both sets of parents in town we were able to negotiate some leave. I'm of the opinion that these lines are their own form of good, I am ...
