The Name Of The Wind
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '10 at 12:15 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Tycho told me to read a book the other day and I told him to tear out all of the pages and shove each one individually up his butt-hole. He didn't do that. Instead he opened the book to chapter near the beginning and told me to read just that chapter, only about four pages. I flipped the book over and read the back. “THE NAME OF THE WIND won't just impress longtime fantasy fans; it will absolutely blow them away -- an unprecedented, utterly breathtaking storytelling tour de force.” I kept reading things like the greatest story told in ...

The Next Chapter
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '10 at 12:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Heavy Rain is really the thing at this point, right? Let's get up on some of that. I know Gabe craves that shit. I'd be playing Heavy Rain too, if it were actually possible for me to do so. I'm not entirely convinced it is. After trying three shops for the game upon our return, I finally tracked one down with copies to spare. I came home to an empty house, family out for the weekend, with nothing to do but play it. I want to stress the extent to which this is something that never happens. I dumped an ...

Heavy Rain and stuff
Posted by News Fetcher on March 02 '10 at 10:30 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I've spent a couple nights with Heavy Rain now and I think it's really special. If you're a parent, (especially a Dad) this game can be pretty difficult to play at times. In fact I'm curious if people who don't have kids will end up getting as much out of it. I don't know if its an 89.85%, or a 9.7 out of 10. What I do know is that after a late night playing it, I sneak into my son's room and hug him before I go to bed. I think Heavy Rain is probably one of the most ...

I Have Multiple Link Disorder!!!

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Two things, or potentially, thangz: Do you have a second? Because we've got a new surveyup. We have to refresh this thing every now and then. It is like the Tree of Liberty in that way, I suppose. Except not. Please don't kill anyone! Also, more Dragon Age: Awakening (singular): revealing inner monologue in three, two... (CW)TB

The Valley Of The Shadow of Death
Posted by News Fetcher on March 01 '10 at 11:45 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
March? Already? That's horrifying. When the first leg of the book tour was concluded, I slept a full thirteen hours in a black sleep which was beyond dreaming. That's how long it took for my skin to excrete our experience with Jesse Thorn, thereby returning my body to normal function. The schedule we were given commanded us to be a part of a program entitled "Jordan, Jesse, Go," and grudgingly we obeyed the document. Already, we were put out; the next episode of Maury promised to feature searing video of cheaters confronted literally in mid-cheat. When we arrived at the ...

Contrition
Posted by News Fetcher on February 26 '10 at 12:15 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Sometimes I am exposed to the larger culture. I'm rarely improved by the process. It had been my intention to eat a hamburger, as is so often the case, and while doing so the restaurant's televisor felt it was important that I know Tiger Woods was very sorry. Then some other people came on and talked for awhile about whether or not he had been sufficiently sorry, but the people wondering this weren't handsome young men, and they didn't really seem like they were the best in the world at anything, and frankly they seemed kind of angry that they ...

PAX East Update
Posted by News Fetcher on February 24 '10 at 03:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Pax East is just a few weeks away and Robert has asked me to share some last minute info with you all. "Two things of note: One is that we are closing Enforcer applications this Friday, so if you didn’t get a chance to snag a 3-day badge before they sold out, you can always volunteer for the show and of course get all the cool perks Enforcers get. Second is that we have a few dozen BYOC slots left, so if you already have a 3-day badge and want to bring your rig, you can reserve a spot here. ...

The Gods Of Modernity
Posted by News Fetcher on February 24 '10 at 01:31 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
It was a lot of fun watching this story mutate as the day progressed, warping in its essential shape, culminating in something like justice. A brigand has tasted his own medicine, and it is bitter. His Twitteris a hoot - he taunts Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling about the ability to alter game behavior at will, and in the very next message attempts to seek the developer's sympathy. It's like, wow, douche. Is lion taunting statistically correlated with lion attacks? Do some math, motherfucker. He's an utterly unrepentant hacker, yet he wonders what strange force keps gets his boxes banned. It ...

Book Tour Starts Tomorrow!
Posted by News Fetcher on February 22 '10 at 09:30 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Our book tour kicks off tomorrow here in Seattle at the University Book Store. From there we make our way to California. You'll be able to purchase our new Anniversary book at any of oursignings (And we hope that you will) or you can just come say hi. This is our first book with our new publisher Random House and they are the ones that set up this book tour. This is also the first time we've done something like this and we really don't want to look like jack asses. So if you could come out to these signings ...

The Game
Posted by News Fetcher on February 22 '10 at 12:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We have invented an incredible new game. It is called, simply, The Game. The rules are concise, which lets you bore directly into its core of boiling molasses. It is a game you play via Chat Roulette, which (as names go) is utterly complete as a descriptor. Chat Roulette connects you, your webcam, and your microphone to another random stranger's all-of-the-above. Also, in many cases, their all-of-the-below. This second one happens a lot, out of nowhere you're watching a man you don't know and can only partially see furiously engaged in what might be called a "gripping single player experience." ...

In The Post Above
Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '10 at 01:15 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I called the expansion "Awakenings," as opposed to Awakening, which is the actual name. It seems to me like they're missing an opportunity to give greater value to the customer, but if they're content (for whatever reason) to deliver a single awakening when they could have offered more that's between them and their conscience.

Dragon Age: Awakenings Comic
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '10 at 04:00 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I loved Dragon Age, and I loved making a comic for Dragon Age. When they started to spin up talk of an expansion, I was glad to see that it as something substantial nature instead of the more a la carte offerings, playsets really, hors d'oeuvres when what I was looking for was a hanging side of beef. A bit after Dragon Age: Awakenings was announced, they dropped us a line to see if we wanted another crack at the fiction. Man, what do you think? It's about a character who's still locked on the info page, but he'll be ...

A Cyclical Argument With A Literal Strawman
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '10 at 12:45 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Alright. So, Ubisoft's new DRM. Supports unlimited installs and Cloud-based save data. Requires absolutely unbroken access to their master servers, or the product ceases to function. I can boil it right down for you: Nobody wins. Well, except pirates. Pirates always win, on a long enough timeline. Honestly, the timeline doesn't even need to be that long. Visit any thread regarding the topic, and I mean any thread, and it won't be three posts until someone raises the Goddamned Jolly Roger and says they'll pirate the game as a gesture consistent with some comprehensive ur-morality they've ginned up, one where ...
