PAX AUS Early Bird and Indie Showcase
Posted by News Fetcher on August 03 '16 at 03:51 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Early Bird pricing for the show ends August 15th, after which it increases Five Dollars for both individual Day Passes and the Three Day. So, grab tickets today. Originally I typed “grab ticklets,” but don’t grab those, because they aren’t real. Get tickets instead. We will not be accepting ticklets at the door. PAX Aus has somehow become my annual vacation. The flight has a strange, surreal fringe, but it’s also the only time my body can actually relax. About three hours into that flight my muscles become something like a…

Confidential To Gabriel
Posted by News Fetcher on August 03 '16 at 02:32 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
It may be true that I did not explicitly mention any of the crucial data that would have created an informed comic strip BUT so much of communication is about the negative space and I’d think that as an artist or whatever you would understand that. Absence is presence. I heard that somewhere, and I knew it would annoy you. For example: when I say “horse,” what I intend is that you absorb a deep warren of meaning where my word-rats writhe and rut in the filthy dark. If you don’t have the receptors for my, you know, nega-data, obviously that’s…

Confidential to Tycho Brahe
Posted by News Fetcher on August 03 '16 at 11:51 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I hope things are going well back at the office. I am sitting in the airport in Minneapolis right now, next stop Gen Con! Anyway, I just saw your news post. Yeah I had no fucking clue what this comic was about. I let you have it because it really seemed to make you chuckle for some reason. I figured there were horses at the show or something so I just drew a couple horses in there. You’re a weird guy and I was gonna let you have this one even though I didn’t get it. The idea that the show was taking place in a medieval context is news to me and honestly makes that joke kind of…

Gen Confessional, Part Two
Posted by News Fetcher on August 03 '16 at 10:32 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I realized something very important when I got the art back from this strip, which is that I hadn’t like one hundred percent told him what I was going for with the Horses. I can tell you, though. Recall that I have never been to Gen Con, so the way I conceive of it may not be correct, but it’s my understanding that it takes place at The Inn Of The Last Home in Ansalon. You won’t actually be able to convince me otherwise. I imagine that I am opening a door, and when I do, the scent of Otik’s Spiced Potatoes seizes me bodily and I am squeezed through a…

Gen Confessional, Part One
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '16 at 11:13 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
There’s a few conventions I’ve been meaning to get to; I think I’ve said I was going to MAGFest a few times. I will someday. People seem to bloom when they talk about it, and I’d like to get some of that. But for years and years, Gen Con essentially defined what a convention was even though I’d never been to it and had no real way of learning about it, because it was just a picture I’d seen in a magazine. It wasn’t simply an exemplar of the form, it was the entirety of the concept, moated between two deep parentheses. For an…

Child’s Play Table Tennis Tournament!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 29 '16 at 07:23 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
August 6th, we’re going back to a classic this year: a Table Tennis Tournament just like we used to do, only now instead of playing Ping Pong you’re playing Ping Pong and changing lives. Not bad for an afternoon’s work, eh? And get a load of this incredible Child’s Play Stuff - an amazing sweat set, that rad custom bottle from Liberty Bottleworks, and more. You can’t buy the trophy, though - gotta earn that. Player registration closes on the 3rd, but Spectator registration doesn’t close until the 5th - and if you miss it, you can still…

Thornwatch at Gen Con!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 29 '16 at 11:11 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I will be attending my very first Gen Con next week! I will be heading over there with the crew from Lone Shark games to talk about Thornwatch. We are coming up on the end of the design phase of this thing and it feels pretty great. We just recently had a meeting to discuss the size,shape and contents of the box. It felt like a huge milestone for me considering how many years I’ve been working on this game. I recently discovered the original notebook I used to design what I was calling Card Warriorz back then. I thought it might be interesting to share some of the earliest stuff I put down…

Elevenses
Posted by News Fetcher on July 29 '16 at 09:51 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I don’t remember if there’s a podcast for it exactly, it might have been after the fact, but somewhere in his rodent mind eleven o’clock in the morning constitutes an afternoonian span. It’s devilry and/or witch-work; no doubt a data point in our species’ tawdry decline. There’s two new Welcome To PAX Shows up, one for Cosplay and one about For The Watch, which is something I’d love to do again. But I’m also putting together something else with Josh that I just need to think about out loud. I streamed something I called ELI5 a ways…

A Study in Saffron
Posted by News Fetcher on July 27 '16 at 01:33 PM
By Brian@penny-arcade.com (Brian) from Penny Arcade:
Brian: I’ve spent the last couple of weekends wandering around my neighborhood with my phone out, collecting Pokemon. It’s seemed a popular past-time and a pleasant one. My usually quiet, keep-to-yourself suburban community has become a swarm of teens, adults and families buzzing around downtown Redmond, sharing smiles and hunting tips. And while I’ve spent the whole of this past week or so wearing some kind of yellow shirt (I’m a Hufflepuff, I have a lot of yellow), I found wearing the sample of our Yellow Team tee to be a neon call for pleasant conversation and fun banter. Wearing that…

I Zhan, Yuuzhan
Posted by News Fetcher on July 27 '16 at 09:37 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Grand Admiral Thrawn is back, welcomed into loving embrace of canon, and I could not be more pleased. The younger iteration of myself liked him much more than the current revision, but the main thing is what it proves: that they aren’t above boring into the years upon years of calcified work to haul worthies to the surface. They have an eye on it. Hopefully not all of it. Hopefully we can erect some tasteful shōji or something to obscure certain parts. You can tell from Panel Two where my own fantasies lie, in the voice Karen Traviss brought to the…

Acquisitions Incorporated: Season One - The Podcast
Posted by News Fetcher on July 25 '16 at 08:51 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
It seemed like a good time to take it all the way back, back in the day, with a podcast of the new Acquisitions Incorporated season we have promoted so vociferously. It was too fun not to do, and it’s something I get asked about a lot at the PAX shows - essentially, “can I listen to the new stuff while i’m driving to work.” Absolutely you can. The feed is here, so go for it! “Watch” the new season however you like, even if that includes not “watching” it per se. Big thanks to Erik Bronnum, Kiko Villasenor, Josh…

Illiterati
Posted by News Fetcher on July 25 '16 at 09:50 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
James Patterson, as has been established, is a necromancer. And he has only begun his dark work. Well, maybe. Have you heard about Bookshots? In the same way Nike branded the calorie with Fuel, Bookshots are an attempt to brand the novella as a form. I’m not neutral on the subject: I think the novella is a potent form factor. Nine Princes In Amber and many other rad, classic books fit comfortably in a space that the traditional publishers don’t give a shit about. Their optimal scenario is the Book As Word Loaf, a hardbacked rectangular volume that…

Destiny Pins!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 22 '16 at 01:32 PM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I am really excited to announce our latest pin set. This is one that I’ve been working on for a while now and I can finally show off the end result. We play a lot of Destiny at my house. Between my wife, my son Gabe and myself, we have a pretty solid little crew. When the opportunity to draw these Destiny pins came up I knew I had to base them on my family fireteam. So to most people that’s just a cool set of pins but that Titan is Gabe, the Warlock is Kara and I am the hunter. Destiny means a lot to me, it is something that brings my family together. We’ve had hours of fun running…

The Tooth Hurts
Posted by News Fetcher on July 22 '16 at 08:12 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I don’t like having my teeth scraped with metal hooks, but I can endure it. I don’t seek it out, or anything. But I love having teeth, so if there is the occasional tooth maintenance procedure sign me up. I’m trying to imagine eating a Fruit Roll-Up with no teeth and friends it is a fucking mess. For my cohort, it is a cloak of fear that, in his words, “devours the sun, making all things dark.” Maybe those are my words. He called up the tooth store and informed them of his mouth trubs, but the extended, detailed conversation he had…
