Pokemon GO
Posted by News Fetcher on July 11 '16 at 08:51 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I have been playing videogames for at least 30 years now and I have never experienced anything like Pokemon GO. I took the family over to downtown Kirkland yesterday to hunt for Pokemon and we had a blast. It was amazing to walk around the waterfront and meet so many other people doing the exact same thing. A group of boys who saw us playing ran up and told us about a Growlithe nearby. We stopped to get some ice cream and I could hear people outside shouting about an especially elusive Zubat. Everywhere we looked we saw people catching Pokemon and not just that but talking with complete…

Portable Demons
Posted by News Fetcher on July 08 '16 at 10:10 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
My experience with the launch of Pokemon GO has been kinda rocky; sometimes it only wants to be a loading screen and not a game. Obviously, I respect its decision. Freedom is the right of all sentient beings. But it does make it harder to play. I’m heading to a barbecue in a park this weekend, and I have the expectation that I will see many, many people looking down at phones in an effort to snare various ‘mons. Whatever might have happened with the launch, which was almost certainly the result of a globe’s worth of people all kicking the shit out of…

Within
Posted by News Fetcher on July 06 '16 at 12:13 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I knew that something strange was going on when I saw that Gabriel had slunk onto Xbox Live. What strange force could compel him? It was Playdead’s Inside, and they made Limbo back in the Cretaceous, so, you know. It’s a pretty fuckin’ strange force. Its always good to be circumspect in your discussion of game events, but when the game is only a “couple few” hours long it transmutes into an iron law. I think we’ve managed to encapsulate the quandary. I think it’s perfect. For me, perfect isn’t about comparing all earthly…

Inside!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 06 '16 at 10:53 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
Inside is one of the best games I have ever played. It is a stunning experience that you have to play for yourself. I am hesitant to talk about it too much because I don’t want to spoil even a second of it for you. I will tell you that it is beautiful, clever, and surprisingly powerful. Games this good do not come along all that often. Don’t miss this one. The Acquisitions Inc. series is up to episode five as of today. This was a massive game that we filmed over the course of two full days. This particular adventure will lead directly into the game we play at PAX West this year. I am so…

The Sixth Taste
Posted by News Fetcher on July 04 '16 at 10:40 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
In real life, this conversation was held between Gabriel and Gabriel the Younger, and bore the feral cast of that clan. It seemed liked Tycho’s faux erudition - considered “erudiction,” removed it - might deliver the proper framework. But my son was not impressed with this false witness, texting me thus: “I know everything about ragequitting. I’ve done it myself. Also, I don’t like controller games. I like keyboards and mice. ” I guess on the one hand I sorta got told, but on the other hand, you know… …

Janus

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
We’ve had this strip in the queue for awhile, but wanted to wait until after the season finale to deliver it. I know there are those who wait until the end. I got out of this show at almost exactly the wrong time. I will just say “The Mountain And The Viper,” however you came to learn of those events, marked the point where I hit pause on the whole thing. Gabriel shames me for this, I should have known what I was getting into, certainly there was evidence about what kind of show this was in the previous, you know, forty episodes or whatever, but I get to…

The RegurgiStation
Posted by News Fetcher on June 29 '16 at 10:21 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
We had initially considered a comic where the device in question simply cooled the vomit, or stores it in tanks; I made a play for something like a Fremen Stillsuit, where it refracted the vomit in the manner of a prism, a vomit prism, into rich oils suitable for nourishing leather and Clif Bars. It not in the strip! That is your indication that I did not succeed in my noble mission. I don’t know what greasy ol’ Gribs is supposed to do about his stupid firmware. In the same way some people can’t be pilots, even if they want to, even if Mrs. Greevey in…

Professional Courtesy
Posted by News Fetcher on June 27 '16 at 12:41 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
So starved for grist are the infinite screens of the Entertainment Beast that it must churn up the icons of a distant age, consume them, and disgorge them anew. Most of the time, it doesn’t work. They’ve fucked up something, or misunderstood something; they take an opportunity to make a tin can telephone between generations and jam it down the shitter. Occasionally, very occasionally, you get Voltron: Legendary Defender. When I talk about missed opportunities, The Powerpuff Girls is the first thing that comes to mind. They’ve completely fucked…

Hideocalypse
Posted by News Fetcher on June 24 '16 at 10:52 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I am mostly Kojima adjacent as a gamer. I feel strongly that I need to be aware of his movement and current location, like when you see a spider in the house; it’s worthwhile to reserve a few cycles to store this data. I love to watch other people play them, and the strangeness - whatever might be said in the strip - is important. Not just where it is in his work, in its own context, but because of the people it inspires to see the state of play and be like, you know what? Fuck all that. I’m always trying to know people via their work. It’s an…

HoloLens
Posted by News Fetcher on June 23 '16 at 09:53 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I finally had the opportunity to try out the Microsoft HoloLens. I’ve played around in pretty much every consumer virtual reality rig available (with the exception of the PSVR) and I love the idea of VR but they all make me a little sick. It varies from device to device but no matter if it’s the Vive or the Gear VR, I can’t go for more than about 30 minutes without getting queasy. I’d love to play VR games all day but something about the experience just doesn’t sit right with my human body. I think “mixed reality” like the Hololens might end up being better for me as I…

Come for the cats, stay for the belts
Posted by News Fetcher on June 23 '16 at 09:53 AM
By Brian@penny-arcade.com (Brian) from Penny Arcade:
Brian: I am the sort of person who tries to match the cheese I am serving to the movie I’m showing when I have friends over. Or when I watch an episode of How I Met Your Mother alone. So it should come as no surprise that, on the rare week that we’ve released two new products at the same time, they’d share something in common. In this case it’s cats. OUR cat, Thomas Kemper. We have it on good authority that he is just like your cat and now he’s on a really nice water bottle and an incredibly soft shirt. A shirt with a pocket. I’m known to maintain a solid t-shirt rotation of about 5…
