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 ...

My day off
Posted by News Fetcher on April 02 '10 at 07:45 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
I am taking the day off to recover from PAX East and the book tour. So far I've played a lot of Lego Star Wars with my son and worked on my D&D campaign. It's been a good day. I did want to post two things real quick though. 1. Here is some awesome video of the PAX East witch. 2. You can vote for us in the Time Magazine 100 most influential people of the year poll. -Gabe out

By from Penny Arcade:
There was a point after PAX East had come to a close and the second leg of our book tour was underway that we began to understand we had fucked up. There were not many opportunities for this sensation to exert itself, our heads only rarely bobbed above the surface of our responsibilities, and every loose moment was invested in readers of the site. We were glad of the opportunity, certainly. But after being away from our families for longer that we have ever been, at some point we ran out of whatever material we construct these things from. I ...

Friends, Romans, Countrymen
Posted by News Fetcher on March 30 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
We spent a substantial amount of time discussing GameCrush this week, trying to discern exactly what was going on there, and I'm not certain we managed to pierce the shell. Their site suggests that they are still down on account of ten thousand requests in five minutes, something which happens on a daily basis here at Penny Arcade, even though we don't rent women from our digital storefront. I want to think this is a thing that will wither and fall, dry and crisp, dying on the stalk. Am I wrong? Kontiki's Störvald Tortilla invested his time well in ...

By from Penny Arcade:
The content itself is imprecise - the greatest danger Gabriel's characters are likely to face is literally drowning in their platinum wealth - but it is entirely true that during PAX East, when a DVD of The Dungeon Masters went missing for a panel, my cohort did create a new panel on the spot and then operate said panel for its duration. To the extent that one man can be proud of another man without shaming the other, I am incredibly proud of him. Proudmax; pride which abuts against the theoretical limits of pride. Our theory regarding PAX is that ...

By from Penny Arcade:
We had a problem with viruses at the last PAX - specifically, they were multiplying inside people's bodies - something this comic attempts to rectify. Whatever. Listen: have you heard about EA's new devilry?!? This is what digital delivery was supposed to result in, before it had materialized, and some of it even came true: inexpensive games, smaller games, games a la carte. Do you remember the original Gran Turismo 5, which sported a completely fragmentary version of the typical experience? That's just what people thought was inevitable back then. It turns out that the people who actually buy games ...

Posted by News Fetcher on March 23 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
You've got to love Jack Tretton. Well, you don't have to. There's no actual law. Still, though. He's always pulsing with dangerous energy, and doesn't shy from broad declarative statements, which is like the scent of roasting meat to a satirist. It's almost as though commentators were his target demographic! Righteous fire has been the order of the day ever since Move was announced, first with that Kevin Butler salvo, and now Tretton's suggestion that the technology behind Natal is indistinguishable from that leveraged on the Eye Toy circa 2002. The most recent demos, presented by Stephen Totoro from Kutaco, ...

PAX EAST!
Posted by News Fetcher on March 22 '10 at 09:30 AM
By from Penny Arcade:
PAX East is this fucking week can you believe it? I can believe it because its been on my calendar for a long time and I think about it a lot. It might get chilly in Boston and we don't want your delicate parts to get cold. So we've created something we like to call the PAX East Scarf. This is a scarf that will be sold at PAX East. You can wear it to keep you warm if it's too cold. Here is a picture of what it looks like! Here is a picture of what it looks like ...

The God of Abraham, Isaac, And Jacob
Posted by News Fetcher on March 21 '10 at 11:15 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
Is it possible for the death of a God to become commonplace? You may find yourself wondering just this, as you reach the latter hours of God of War. Is deicide something which may be chewed beyond the point of flavor? Of texture? Can it occur with such frequency and seeming nonchalance that godkilling ceases - almost - to be a discrete event? The correct answer, of course, is who gives a shit. God of War is about kicking a hellhound through the uprights at the very apex of the big game. Flashbulbs are exploding everywhere. A bird catches on ...

Subterfuge And Social Media
Posted by News Fetcher on March 18 '10 at 11:30 PM
By from Penny Arcade:
If there is a bigger Splinter Cell fan than myself, I haven't yet met them; but in their zeal to promote the newest iteration, Ubisoft has caused Sam Fisher to tweet. And I don't mean they've made him chirp, which would be preferable. They've given him a Twitter account where he tweets in a supremely earnest way about how tormented his shit is. No. This is something you've got to be very careful with. It's possible to make something like this work, but (ironically for a marketing maneuver) its connections to the "product" need to be largely oblique - it ...
