Lexcalibur Reading At University Bookstore
Posted by News Fetcher on August 10 '18 at 04:40 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I should emphasize for those of you reading this from out of town that University Bookstore is actually a very specific bookstore, and not more of a general concept as it might first appear. But! It’s all true: At 5pm pn August 18th, I will be doing a reading at the aforementioned University Bookstore (this one) of my “if Shel Silverstein was your Dungeon Master” book of poetry Lexcalibur. We’ll also have a small allotment of the physical book available there, if that’s something you missed out on last time. There’s also a…

Power Word Thrill
Posted by News Fetcher on August 10 '18 at 11:20 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Obviously, there has to be a way to digest the dSports you haven’t consumed; some mechanism by which we may obtain chelated versions of these prized materials for easy absorption. That’s DiceCenter. (There wasn’t enough room in this one to give another shoutout to Goldenboy, unfortunately. We love that dude.) The streaming schedule next week is pretty goofed up because of yet another Top Secret project. It’s not a Project based on the classic TSR roleplaying game Top Secret, unfortunately; such is the bewildered and dilapidated state of our world. …

Kicking Down
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '18 at 11:20 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I feel confident that the dSports league I inevitably found will suffer the same grim setbacks shared by every other attempt to yoke incredibly competitive young men toward some decorous, public expression. Don’t these violent sociopaths know I’m trying to establish dominion?!? Hey, have you heard about KeyForge: Call Of The Archons? It’s from Fantasy Flight, which is calling it a “Unique Game.” Like, as a genre. I’ll get into the peculiarities of that in a second. What it means functionally is that every deck of cards you buy…

Lycan’t Even
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '18 at 10:01 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Michael was headed to some primeval forest, and I was headed to Spokane, so we put together a couple strips furthering the whole “dSports” concept because we can’t stop thinking about it. Then we sat down to write Monday’s strip and it’s all we wanted to write about. So there are a couple more strips on this theme, not bound into any particular storyline or anything, simply premised thus: that we live in a world nourished by something called “dSports,” and even the drama surrounding this form of entertainment is sufficient to sustain a…

Norman’s Guy
Posted by News Fetcher on August 03 '18 at 11:21 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
When I got back into the game of No Man’s Sky I was playing with Mulk, I thought it was very novel at first that there was an frozen-ass hell planet called Teeko. How novel, I thought. That’s sort of like my handle! Everything else progressed precisely as it did in today’s tender strip. I got back into it because of the No Man’s Sky NEXT update, because it allowed me to do what I’d wanted to do originally, which was to have another person there. Not terribly long after Mike started playing the game with his boys instead, and… I kept…

Posted by News Fetcher on August 01 '18 at 12:41 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I was going to say that I don’t know why a brand as massive as Blizzard would court the mainstream with this type of horseshit, but it’s a dumb question with an obvious answer. Though I suspect there are two answers: the first one, that the mainstream has a lot of money, is relatively straightforward. The second, that there is something in the soul that cries out for recognition, for transmutation, to cease being the settled for wooden simulacrum of a boy and to instead be made real. It’s a shitty goal, and I don’t know why - outside of some kind of…

Thornwatch is for Sale!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '18 at 10:01 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I think my first notes for the game that would eventually become Thornwatch are from 2011. Originally I set out to design a card based RPG that I could run for my Monday night D&D group. I had the opportunity to show a very early prototype to Mike Selinker and he managed to convince me that what I had could be developed into a full blown game that we could actually publish. So we teamed up with Lone Shark games and over the years my raw idea got pounded into shape by some of the best minds in tabletop gaming. Rodney Thompson, Mike Selinker and Chad Brown all worked their asses off to…

Sustenance
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '18 at 10:01 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Gabriel’s family is apparently the only force that mitigates him, because when they left last week for a few days he reverted to the creature I met twenty years ago - a kind of mad-eyed urban forager who is deeply confused about what constitutes food. Once he drank Sprite for months - I mean, like, in lieu of water - and his urine became thick and rich, like Mrs. Butterworth’s. If left alone, I have no doubt that tiny crystal cities would rise from the thickest part of the puddle. People sometimes ask for “the receipts,” occasionally interspersing…

Orbituary
Posted by News Fetcher on July 27 '18 at 10:01 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
It’s too much fun to depict the operation of a Fantasy Roleplaying Esports League. I mean it. I want to blow this thing out, like… do livery for every team in the league, simulate a tournament. Model the necessary and inevitable romances. Ultimately sell the property to an animation studio that produces a season anime. I talked about the Omegathon earlier this week, specifically how it can transform even childrens’ games into arena spectacles, but my experience with that tradition reveals something else. There are games that aren’t…

dSports
Posted by News Fetcher on July 25 '18 at 11:21 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
When Hasbro’s CEO was discussing the topic of “eSportz,” I suspect he was primarily talking about the million people who watch Magic played online per month as opposed to Dungeons & Dragons, but conversation around the latter tended to dominate the social channels I frequent. That concept is too D&Delicious to pass up. The confusion around “Esports” as a term is ubiquitous outside the community proper. I’ve heard eSports used as a catch all term for streaming in general, the way parents in the eighties called all electronic games…

Incentivism
Posted by News Fetcher on July 23 '18 at 11:21 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Fortnite’s first Summer Skirmish faced unique challenges, but the one I can’t stop thinking about was the fact that the game’s quirky, slapstick vibe gets perforated a bit when the stakes increase. The Omegathon we operate at PAX takes regular games and then appends a caboose of complex social systems. I’ve said it before: it’s one thing to play a game, but if the systems are a gateway to a bunch of money, to say nothing of the fact that there are thousands of fucking people watching you, it can make it difficult to even use your body correctly. …
