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 ...

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 ...

The Sound Of A Klaxon
Posted by News Fetcher on June 28 '10 at 09:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I did my best to warn him, but he's quite certain that The Deck of Many Things has a place in his campaign. On this point, we don't entirely disagree; the only material distinction is that he believes it will "spice things up," and I believe will be its burning, meteor-pocked ruin. I've used the iPhone 4 over the weekend, and since I was upgrading from the 3G the difference is pretty striking performance-wise. With every update, and the last one in particular, that beautiful, classic device has transformed cycle by cycle into a gasping, wheezing creature, unable to tug ...

The Shipment
Posted by News Fetcher on June 24 '10 at 11:30 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
I called an Apple Store, just for kicks, to see how things were going during the launch, and if he thought they might have any phones ever. He described the line to me, the one outside of his store, as something like a human Möbius strip - a warping tendril folded in, a thing without earthly end. "I'm looking at eternity," he said. "I can see the tail of The Beast." I've gone on at length about how waiting in line is a tonic for the soul. For tech and films especially, it's a rare coordinate where you stand a ...

Our Jpeg
Posted by News Fetcher on June 23 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
So yeah...how about those poop jokes. I guess at the very least it is not unprecedented. I made a pretty major change to the rules in my D&D campaign that I wanted to share. I'm not sure this is right for every group but it really worked for my guys. I decided to make most checks a minor rather than a standard action. Normally if a player wants to examine a strange fountain or try and pull a statue he needs to make a check. The DM might call for an arcana or a strength check and that is a ...

Redolent With Spices
Posted by News Fetcher on June 23 '10 at 09:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
This was an authentic series of text messages sent to me by Gabriel. I would take a picture of it, but I would have to use my own phone to do so, which would sunder the universe. Rest assured that such communiques are not uncommon, and that taken in aggregate they present a wholly unified Aesthetics of Shit. I kept returning to the Transformers: War For Cybertron demo, time and time again - and yes, spell checker, Cybertron is a motherfucking word. Even though I'd hit the level cap, I kept telling myself I "wasn't sure" if I liked it ...

Secreting Digestive Ichor
Posted by News Fetcher on June 21 '10 at 09:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Kinect, being an onyx lozenge bristling with a combination of sensing "eyes" and licking "beams," has an inherent Fear Quotient (FQ). It generates a base amount of human terror simply by being plugged in. And after as little as twenty minutes spent observing human targets, test units are (reportedly) resting in puddles of acrid, burning saliva. I understand that we're supposed to envision Move and Kinect on some kind of Madison Square Garden fight poster, but I'm not entirely sure these are comparable products. Move attempts to split the baby, which is (metaphorically speaking) a noble gesture: one that attempts ...

The Brute Force Method
Posted by News Fetcher on June 17 '10 at 11:30 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
How is possible that I'd never played Words With Friends? I'd heard of it, of course, but it's not quite enough to say that it is Scrabble on the iPhone. You have to emphasize its asynchronous nature: its anytime-ness, its pocket-ness. It has a really weird pedigree, too, not that it comes in much, but a combination of Age of Empires and Scrabble is what I want always. I know that Porkfry prefers UniWar, and I understand completely; I simply prefer to fight with words. At least, I did. That's fairly quick, as personal obsessions go. We talked about how ...
