We’re thinking about mixing up one of our annual events - what do you think? We used to do a more traditional format a long time ago, but there’s a ton of incredible players around here and it would be cool to smash them against each other. (CW)TB

You might recall that our own Gabrak is set to volunteer at camp; counselor orientation just wrapped up and I am given to understand it was suffused with the ancient wisdom. I suggested when I was talking about fighting games before - and how it’s okay for them to disregard, essentially, someone who isn’t actually part of their audience - that there’s a rhythm under the surface of the genre that I can’t perceive. Then, I said that David Sirlin had made a career of simulating various aspects of fighting games as boardgames. I also said that I had a similar…

The Divestiny
Posted by News Fetcher on February 24 '16 at 11:53 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Because I liked The Division, aside from one or two things I’m perfectly able to live with because I’m aware of what it means to live in a finite universe, I had assumed that Gabriel would not like it. That’s typically how this sort of thing shakes out. But not this time! Its starting to look like we might play (and potentially even enjoy) the same game at the same time. I think that The Division will be around a long time, both as a product but also in terms of its ideas being absorbed generally into other games; it might not always feel like it does…

Club PA Comic Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on February 22 '16 at 02:02 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
As I have suggested previously, one of the supernatural benefits of Club PA membership is and exclusive comic and “postito” each month. I occasionally then preview that month’s comic for you, like so: Not a lot of info there, to be sure. It’s about Monthly Crates, if that helps. Plus, it contains perhaps the most disgusting panel in our ouvre. Whether that constitutes an incentive or a disincentive is up to you! (CW)TB

My primary means of interacting with fighting games these days is watching the output of serious players. I feel like I understand what is happening in a round of LoL - I know the tiny part of a spiral that is writ large when the best players interact with it. The moment to moment aspects of a Fighting Game though, like an RTS, are opaque to me. That isn’t to say I don’t enjoy trying to even find those primary shapes, and to discover their colors and contours, but I’m one hundred percent on some preschool shit as the metaphor would suggest. There is a card…

We have it downloading on the PS4 now, the one here in the office, and it is my intention to frown the entire time he plays it. What’s funny about this scenario is that Kiko determines what system he is going to play a multiplayer game on based exclusively on whether or not he can use the Xbox Elite Controller, which is currently only available for one system, but I guess that could change at some point. I didn’t see any reason to go into it when they weren’t even available for purchase, but the truth is that there isn’t much to talk about. If you can…

Gabriel and the other, actual Gabriel - The Gabriel currently contained within the parenthesis of the first - have been delighted by a game called ADIOS, which is the clever truncation of Amazing Discoveries In Outer Space. It’s always funny to me when he rolls up on something like this, something I would consider “my” kind of game, and then starts regaling me with it. I don’t even know how he’s stumbled onto this shit, weirdo shit, as private to me as the inner surface of my eyelid, but of course he’s playing this stuff on the Playstation 4 and not…

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
There’s another universe where XCOM2 is how they brought the franchise back; the long fallow period of XCOM’s defeat bookended by the oral history of an underground war. I understand why they didn’t, though - nobody save for a select few lorekeeper, weirdo cultists would even get why these subversions were novel or cool. They had to establish the form before they could reinterpret it. But I do wonder if they had this idea first. I have a lot of time to think about things like this because the actual game no rn so good. It’s been a very long time…

Gabriel put out the call, and I answered, but not after giving him a bunch of shit. If someone is your second choice, you need to make them feel as though they were your actual first choice and the other person is garbage can full rancid cottage cheese and weeping cantaloupe rinds. Which, you know… given the people involved… might have been a difficult position. I’m not an especially big fan of Crucible, which is what Destiny calls it when you shoot each other. It’s cool that it’s tied into the rest of their dark manipulators, but I play PVP…

Everything Old Is New Again
Posted by News Fetcher on February 10 '16 at 11:57 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
In Australia, men’s urinals are devices of unique and perhaps even baroque construction. I say men’s urinals, because even though I have never been in a women’s restroom in Australia I doubt very seriously they are constructed in this way. I don’t really see any way to use this device collaboratively that doesn’t result in a huge pile of women drenched in pee. Which is fine if that’s what you’re into, but I suspect that’s something of a gourmet taste. In any event, using these “grate urinals” is a little like Donkey…

My Timeline

I like to take photos on my phone as I work. I do this to keep a sort of digital sketchbook I guess. I like to be able to swipe back through my photos and see the work I was doing mixed in with pics of my kids and stuff. I thought I’d drop a bunch of it here and see if you guys found it interesting. So here’s a quick dump of the last couple months…minus my kids and some secret projects:) This starts with a comic drawn back on December 10th Christmas Present for Jerry First crack at the bear from Nightlight More Nightlight Another strip! First attempt at the…

Decrepitude

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I wanted to watch a video about the Skills in The Division, and it asked me my age. I entered “40,” which is apparently a number, and it was the first time I had even considered that I might be forty years old. That’s really the only time I get a sense of how old I am anymore, is when a game trailer wants me to choose the year of my birth. Except I usually don’t go all the way down to my year, because it’s too far. I usually choose the first year that will be a valid entry, and that year is always getting closer. I’m like a Goddamn…
