Everything You Need To Know About Blur
Posted by News Fetcher on May 27 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Blur is marvelous, even though these might as well be real power-ups. IGN delivered as much savagery as the game is likely to receive in review form, and if absolute dominion over your opponents is the only way you're able to experience pleasure, you might find yourself writing a similar piece. I don't blame him at all for it. People play games for different reasons - this is part of the reason we have done this strip. Can you come to terms with bullshit? How about luck? Do you recognize it as a distinct form of energy that sometimes informs ...

Some things you can buy if you want
Posted by News Fetcher on May 26 '10 at 09:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
If you have not checked out the Penny Arcade store recently you should. I say that because, when you buy things from the store we get the money and we use it to buy stuff. Here are a few items of interest: -A new shirt based on this comic. -Our anniversary book. -The Move Minor Standard shirt. -The Lookouts print pack If you want to keep buying things after you're done in our store you can always pick up a copy of the D&D Player's Strategy guide. I drew the cover for this book and its got a ton of ...

We've Got To Get To The Jamba Juice
Posted by News Fetcher on May 25 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
I played through Alan Wake prior to the actual release, before much was made of its fairly vigorous "promotional consideration." I've already said that as a writer in the Northwest, liking a game about a writer in the Northwest was probably a foregone conclusion. I never got tired of the way their technology manipulates light, and there are discussions to be had about the narrative itself that are worth having. I didn't notice the brands, or didn't care, because I was trying to keep my entire body contiguous, or I was busy looking at something else - but God damn, ...

Never, Ever Press B
Posted by News Fetcher on May 23 '10 at 11:30 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Gabriel thinks that he might be done with Red Dead Redemption already, and it won't be the first time I've taken a save we've created together and dragged it to completion. We pulled a very solid night of multi out of it, though; I should have recognized just how bright that candle was, and reverse-engineered the saying. Gabriel (more or less) feels as though he's seen "the loop." He suspects, and not without evidence, that he will be riding a horse from hell to breakfast and shootin' them what needs it, and on 'til morning. That's what happened in the ...

The Wince Of Persia
Posted by News Fetcher on May 21 '10 at 10:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I just put Forgotten Sands to bed, last night around nine or so. It's strange, in a way, but maybe we shouldn't wonder when a series about time travel literally travels, itself, through time. We loved the last Prince of Persia, which was entitled "Prince of Persia," without the gentle comforts a subtitle might provide. These affections placed us in the minority, though, and the franchise was routed - sent careening backward through the catalogue, regaining consciousness at a place just after the one everybody claims to like but hardly anyone bought. What you get with The Forgotten Sands is ...

By from Penny Arcade:
Here some quick thoughts about the games I've been playing recently: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands: I've devoted the last two nights to Prince and each night it has been almost impossible for me to put the controller down and go to bed. The puzzles are clever, the level design is inspired and the gameplay is a fucking blast. It simply does not get much better in my book. Prince is like a Roller Coaster. It's not super long but the entire time you're on it your having fun. Red Dead Redemption: If Prince is a roller coaster then ...

Mailbag
Posted by News Fetcher on May 19 '10 at 09:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
A PA reader and medic stationed just outside Baghdad sent me a mail this week asking about how I run my D&D games via Email. It just so happens that with the new baby I have not had time to run a proper game for my crew. What I decided to do instead is take them through a little adventure via Email until I'm able to get back to the table. Email can be a great way to focus on story elements in your game rather than combat. Personally I like to make my Email adventures more about decisions and ...

Day One Purchase
Posted by News Fetcher on May 19 '10 at 12:00 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Red Dead Redemption sat next to my keyboard all day yesterday, face down, and I frequently stole glances at the screens printed on the back. Soon, soon. I wonder if this game will see the kind of post-release attention the new Grand Theft Auto did. Next month's sees a free co-op mission pack hit, and I'm a position to savor it, but GTA4 essentially delivered full games as downloadable content. The countryside in this game just goes and goes, and goes and goes, and then goes some more. It's beyond beautiful. At the rate we're going, though, we'll chew the ...

My Pedipalps!
Posted by News Fetcher on May 17 '10 at 09:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
I am occasionally coaxed back into Azeroth, or into its battle-scarred adjunct The Outland, and each time I return to a bank full of mysterious garbage and elixir-maddened shrews. I don't know what half of that stuff is anymore, some of it is related to quests I've also forgotten, and some were almost certainly kept because they had "a cool icon." My bags are no better. They seem like someone else's bags, bulging with trinkets of questionable utility, baubles which steep in a puddle of alchemical reagents and alien produce. Open World games tend not to be terribly good investments ...

Das Printenpacken
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '10 at 02:45 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
We decided to put a few of packs together of the full-page storylines, in case you want to have ridiculously beautiful versions of stuff like Lookouts: A Boy Must Learn or Cardboard Tube Samurai: Seventh Spring. Of course, virtually every strip can be printed out direct from the high-res file - that option can be found at the bottom of almost every strip. (CW)TB

Oh No The Sun
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '10 at 12:15 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
We put together another Dungeons and Dragons podcast on Wednesday, this time devoted to the resurgent Dark Sun setting. This round saw me behind the DM's screen, doing my best to immolate, abrade, crush, and otherwise destroy our own Gabriel, Kris Straub, and Scott Kurtz. I spent two and half years invested in a Dark Sun campaign as a young man, and the opportunity to revel there again - if reveling is even possible in that blistered psychic wasteland - was an honor and a pleasure. I hope I was able to create in their minds the same deep curiosity ...

I am back!
Posted by News Fetcher on May 12 '10 at 08:45 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
Well I'm back at the office after my paternity leave. It was great being home with the new baby for a couple of weeks. I have to say the second one is much easier. I don't know if he's a better baby of if I'm just a better dad. Either way there isn't nearly as much of the anxiety and uncertainty with this one. It's great because without worrying if every cry means he's dying I can really just enjoy having a little baby. I'm about to go an play some Dungeons and Dragons. We're recording a new podcast but ...
