The Corruption Of Our Youth
Posted by News Fetcher on February 15 '10 at 09:45 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
This is something that was brought to me as a legitimate avenue of concern. When I was straining the X10 stuff for nourishment, in receipt primarily of husks, I eventually found a reassertion of the quasi-exclusive Modern Warfare 2 DLC - a game whose iron scepter once made such inviolable edicts. I felt nothing. I felt less than nothing, actually, because the part of me that would have felt those things is gone. It really can't be overstated the extent to which Infinity Ward has destroyed that franchise for me. The most garish junior high peechee poem could not fully ...

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Gabe and I are beginning our descent into Rapture more or less simultaneously, so there's plenty to discuss. I'm still feeling my way around, seeking out the game's throughline. Gabriel loves it whenever there isn't shooting, and there is really quite a lot of shooting, which complicates things. What we both agree on is that Bioshock - and Rapture itself - are much, much broader subjects than the "gonzo shooters" which have thus far defined its chronology. Right from the install, though, Bioshock 2 deals in subversive, incredibly sophisticated humor. A glance at my task manager reveals that, while running, ...

Why Aren't We Coming To Your Town?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 10 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Ever since Gabriel posted the destinations for our book tour, there has been a steady stream of aggression amassing in his inbox regarding perceived slights towards specific cities o even broad regions. We don't harbor animosity of any kind for particular geographies, we are not thus constructed; these decisions have everything to do with the limitations of your physical universe and your unrelenting temporal schema. For me, every new place is a broad matrix of unmet people and unhad snacks, two quantities for which I have an endless enthusiasm. I won't presume to speak for Gabriel, who is more reticent ...

You Know What I'm Talking About
Posted by News Fetcher on February 08 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Mass Effect 2 is finally in the bag after perhaps thirty hours of interstellar ramblin', and I'll be God Damned if they haven't ended up with something like a new genre. Bioware's unsparing assessment of their first go-round has resulted in a taut-ass sky-journey that spends hour after hour cinching itself around your throat. I suggested a few days ago that the conversations ME2 engenders - conversations which might unfold during wholly spontaneous confabs - recommend the experience and reinforce how distinct different playthroughs can be. You run into trouble around the sixty or seventy percent complete mark, though, when ...

This Lady

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
is so fucking rad. The link is more or less a video appraisal of what makes English such a Goddamned whorehouse. Trying to explain this satanic gumbo to a new speaker - my task as a father - is beyond daunting. When he wants to know why this or that bullshit is so irretrivably fucked, I've begun telling him that our language is haunted. (CW)TB

The Appocalypse
Posted by News Fetcher on February 05 '10 at 12:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Virtually every person who's "done time" in Azeroth has begged for a portable Auction House application, a hunger which is being answered with a premium application- and may it be the first of many. I'm not a current player, though Gabriel made an honest entreaty yesterday morning to that effect. Even so, I'm intrigued by the idea of secondary screens as vectors of gameplay. Make no mistake: the Auction House is absolutely a game. For my part, I hope they don't implement this and then recline in satisfaction; harvesting and crafting in particular are open to a systemically valid manifestation. ...

Questionable On Many Levels
Posted by News Fetcher on February 03 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
You may have guessed that we'd feel it necessary to comment on the most recent local news offering about videogames. I'm of the opinion that we've already illuminated their general practices with this ancient comic, created almost two years ago to the day. If there's a better way to characterize the essential mendacity and debauched ethics of that format, I know it not. We did approach the subject matter though, with a strange comic, the sort of thing you might discuss in a private context but never within earshot of the larger society. Obviously, the prowlings of decrepit older men ...

The Future Is No Escape
Posted by News Fetcher on February 01 '10 at 12:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Something I like about Mass Effect 2 (and this is a list which must be appended frequently) is that I have a personal assistant. In a continuing effort to physically twist off any game element that does not support their lean new thesis, there is a character in the game who will tell you if you have new mail. This is not something that you must wonder about, or check fruitlessly - a woman just tells you. With her mouth. And then you know. In 2005, when gentle brontosaurs still roamed, we engaged in an ill-conceived "Hump Day Challenge" against ...

The Morning After
Posted by News Fetcher on January 29 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
That iPad presentation had to be the worst thing I've even seen on on the Apple stage. There is a part where they - I am not making a joke - there is a part where they try to make creating spreadsheets seem awesome. Jilted may be the word. Of course, we're at the second wave of commentary now, the reflexive defense phase, but I've seen this practiced arc too many times to feel its pull. Apple didn't make a case for the device. The end. Short of a franchise "reboots" years after the fact (along the lines of a ...
