An Actual, Real Film
Posted by News Fetcher on December 18 '09 at 12:15 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I'm on record as saying that game length isn't an especially good indicator of, well, anything really, except perhaps game length, of which it may be considered a key indicator. I do find it interesting however that - at completion - I've played Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes four times longer than I played Uncharted 2, even including the multiplayer. Considering the thirty dollar ante, this is a ri-goddam-diculous amount of entertainment for the money - in raw dollars, it is quite likely the master of the season. With the defeated campaign hanging from my belt like a grisly ...

PATV
Posted by News Fetcher on December 18 '09 at 10:45 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
It's Friday and that means a new show on PATV. Today we've got episode three of the series available and next Friday will be the premiere of Blamimations. This particular episode is about the writing process but it's not one of the video podcasts I mentioned earlier. Those are called the 4th Panel and they are just like the podcasts in that you're sort of a fly on the wall while we make a comic strip. This episode has some writing in it, but it's more us talking about how we make PA. We've got lots more great shows in ...

A Selective Reading
Posted by News Fetcher on December 16 '09 at 11:00 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The Dante's Inferno demo is a demo that must be played. It's funny, but given what they're attempting here it really shouldn't be. Weird is the word; it's the result of so many warring drives that teasing out the throughline becomes difficult. You can impale dudes on your scythe and them throw them, which has kind of a lacrosse vibe. Lacrosse it pretty cool. Outside of that, I'm not sure I have much use for it. Though far from the only electronic reader available, the Kindle is deeply representative of the form - iconic in a way, an attempt to ...

I, Um... Yes
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '09 at 03:30 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The Dante's Inferno demo was a nasty, incoherent facsimile of an existing product, and worse, it doesn't seem to understand what makes the original worthy of emulation. I've played demos that didn't communicate the actual product before - TRON 2.0 being the most grave example - so who can say what it means for the destiny of the retail product. This demo pierced the natural curiosity that might have weakened me in a retail context, and for this I am grateful. It did cause me to write this ridiculous poem, though: I implored him then, saying "Apparition, literate of ...

nook
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '09 at 01:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I've gotten a lot of requests from people wanting to know what I think of my nook. I've read all the same reviews that you guys have and most of them are not very favorable. I think I might be coming at it from a slightly different perspective though. I am what the ladies call an "early adopter". That is to say I buy new gadgets as soon as I possibly can. I think if you are a fan of new tech, you tend to overlook a lot of the stuff that comes along with buying a brand new gadget. ...

The Axiom
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '09 at 12:15 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I'm not sure exactly what the deal is with Tony Hawk, if the people in his orbit just never disagree with him, or if he operates in some kind of psychic Faraday cage, or what. But it's asinine in the extreme to suggest that there's no cause for displeasure with his product other than a spirit preemptively poisoned against his noble works. His assertion - that of a purely a priori loathing for Ride - ain't gonna cut it. If people thought it was going to be weird to play a game they'd been playing for a decade via a ...

PATV
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '09 at 09:45 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Episode 2 of the Penny Arcade show went up last Friday. We've also put up a FAQ to answer some of your PATV related questions. The important thing is that PATV is sort of like a channel. Every Friday you'll be able to hit the PATV site and watch a new show. Each month you'll get two episodes of Penny Arcade: The Series. That's what we've got up there right now. This is a documentary style look at life here at PA. You will also get one episode of a show we're calling the Fourth Panel. This is essentially a ...

Katamari Winners!
Posted by News Fetcher on December 11 '09 at 12:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
We've finally gotten through all the Katamari contest entries and picked our three winners. First place goes to Anna the Red's bento box. Congratulations to Anna! She has won herself the Head-end Noby Noby Boy scarf made by Keita Takahashi, the creator of Katamari Damacy, signed art from Katamari Forever producer Kazuhito Udetsu, a copy of Katamari Forever, and the Japanese soundtrack. Way to go! Second place goes to Spike Vonzuben's Katamari hat. Spike just won the Tail-end Noby Noby Boy scarf also made by Keita Takahashi, a copy of Katamari Forever, and the Japanese soundtrack. Incredible! And our third ...

I want to make sure everyone knows about the Dickerdoodle contest so I'm gonna repost the announcement from yesterday: It's Dickerdoodle time again! Once again, I'm asking you to send me your pictures of people making/enjoying Dickerdoodles. Just like previous years I'll post the best ones and give out prizes to the winners. You can take a look at what people sent in last year right here (Warning NSFW!). Each year you guys impress me with your depravity. last year saw the invention of the "bucookie" genre. A frosting fantasy that was played out in many a submission. I can't ...

A Private Moment
Posted by News Fetcher on December 11 '09 at 11:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
If you pre-ordered the Nook a sufficiently long time ago, they ship it to you overnight - and Gabriel's arrived at the office yesterday afternoon. As a person with no fetish for technology, the "unboxing video" holds within it no magic; my cohort finds their barely contained eroticism irresistible. We've tried to contain the illicit character of the form in today's strip. The last panel attempts to marry a satirical voice with an assertion of genuine truth, which is that the film that protects our new devices - and the gentle tug, as it resists - is one of this ...

On The Dunes of Ur-Marsa
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '09 at 10:45 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I don't wear nice clothing often enough to remember exactly how it is applied to the body. Every time the Child's Play Dinner rolls around - and this year marks the sixth such occasion - I approach the garment bag like I'm inspecting a crime scene, afraid to disturb it, trying instead to interpret it. As happens with such frequency, I try to imagine what a normal person would do in my situation. What I have come up with is this: no normal person would ever be in my situation. Today's strip is the one purchased at last year's event ...

Good On Paper
Posted by News Fetcher on December 07 '09 at 11:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We don't play a lot of Ground War in Modern Warfare 2, by which I mean we don't play any of it, ever. Kiko and I investigated the mode (in our traditional scouting capacity) and determined that what is more than enjoyable at twelve players can become something altogether else at eighteen. It's the experience becoming that much more destabilized, altering the value of your inputs. Killcam footage sometimes looks like it is from another game, perhaps being played somewhere else on the service, by people you do not know. Once the number of people we want to play with ...
