PAX East Storytime: Jonathan Blow
Posted by News Fetcher on March 21 '16 at 03:41 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I feel fairly confident that you know about Jonathan Blow, because he has driven you nuts on precisely two occasions: once with Braid, and once more recently with The Witness. Within each game were many sub-opportunities to be driven mad, such are his dark emanations. He’s going to open up the show for us at PAX East, and I’m very curious what he’ll have to say. (CW)TB

Enthusiasm
Posted by News Fetcher on March 21 '16 at 11:32 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
There is a new Hitman! And there is also a new comic about the new Hitman. I haven’t started it yet; I’m typically Dividing, or whatever it is called when one plays The Division. “Playing The Division,” I suppose. I tend to play Hitman games the same way I played the Ninja Gaiden reboot - I am trying to engineer a perfect playthrough of a very specific part, and I play one tiny part of these games, perhaps shamefully, so much that I tend to get my money’s worth out of the weird little origami I’m trying to make out of its…

Pant, Singular
Posted by News Fetcher on March 18 '16 at 10:43 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I’ve tried unsuccessfully to get him into the Division thing; believe me, it’s not for lack of trying. It’s precisely what happened with Destiny, where I found his baseless enthusiasm despicable and indecipherable, and shamed him at every opportunity. Except I was wrong that time, it just took me a very long to figure out; I wonder how it will go in reverse. “Not well,” is my guess. He tried to play with us night before last, but the level disparity was too much; Division doesn’t have a smooth way of balancing these things out, which…

Magnets
Posted by News Fetcher on March 16 '16 at 10:42 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Grab related to me his high highs and low lows when it came to Samsung Pay, which works vastly more often than it doesn’t, but when it doesn’t, you feel like an anachronism only in reverse. There is such a thing as the old fashioned person who hasn’t caught up, but as the kind of early adopter technology we crave is becoming purpose built for social interactions, we now have an opportunity to be ridiculous in an entirely new way. One of the challenges with this technology isn’t a challenge with the technology at all, which is to say, it’s a problem with…

Club PA Comic Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on March 14 '16 at 12:31 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
It’s time for another Club PA strip preview, like so: What is it about?! It is about Men’s Clinics which promise to restore your masculine vigor. I was never especially vigorous, so I don’t know entirely what that would constitute, like a prehensile dong or what, but we investigate the concept. Oh, and what is Club PA? It’s too much stuff to detail here. Ask your doctor if Club PA is right for you. (CW)TB

The Didactic Order
Posted by News Fetcher on March 14 '16 at 11:01 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
There was a time when you could use exaggeration to communicate - you could leverage dark imagery with the presumption that your audience would understand that you did not mean it literally, but were instead utilizing a rhetorical device to describe feelings outside the boundaries of the acceptable and potentially even amuse a person precisely with the extent of the disparity between reality and the metaphor. Weren’t those cool times? That is what we must always keep in mind. Thus, we allow our enemies to disarm us. You might have heard that Hulk Hogan was suing…

VR Triptych
Posted by News Fetcher on March 11 '16 at 12:02 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Here’s kind of a tour of our adventureth in thyberthpace, its bigger-on-the-inside dealio and its casual profundities. theBlu: Encounter is usually the intro. With or without audio, depending on where I think that person is at. When you are acting as the “dealer” for these things, you have to determine the client’s level of tolerance. The level of stimulation we are comfortable with has a brain component, certainly, but we’ve trained that brain also to gate and absorb this stuff. I can remember back when Bioshock came out, I thought that…

Membrane
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '16 at 01:22 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Because Michael craves novelty, he is making the leap over to the Android side of the equation. I like novelty in some contexts, don’t know if I crave it exactly, but God Damn if this motherfucker doesn’t need to touch and swipe on an expensive new rectangle every few months. I don’t need to do that, but I’m glad he does; I’m glad that he has these wriggling, besuckered tentacles. I need somebody to change the objects around me every now and then, to seasonally adjust my life, so that new stimuli is present. The comic is literally just the…

Zone Theory
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '16 at 01:31 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The Division is what I’m waiting for now. I try not to do shit like this but believe me 100% when I say that I scammed a code for this game, and technically I could have started playing at five or so this morning when the servers went on, but I think I was still drunk from the night before. I’m trying to download it here at the office for some kind of possible interaction with it, but it’s hard to say what this attempt will actually result in. I don’t want to complain about the speed with which I access a, like, global information infrastructure from the…

Precautionary Tale
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '16 at 12:13 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Now that we’ve moved everything there’s just this hole in the office where Virtual Reality will exist. It’s strange in some respects that we’re going to “fill” that volume with intangible places, overwriting the zone with a polymorphic suite of sensory data, but it’s true. It has to stay empty so it can remain empty physically but be colonized by alien stimuli and the occasional whatever Gabe wants to do in there. The virtumal porns that I’ve seen, primarily on the Gear VR - a device which I maintain has a unique and compelling…

Forgotten Sorceries
Posted by News Fetcher on March 02 '16 at 12:12 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
It’s funny that at an event clearly designed to focus attention on Microsoft’s unified Windows platform and their designs for the PC in general, an off the cuff remark from Phil Spencer about upgrading the hardware on the Xbox One became the takeaway. Not funny for them, I imagine! My suspicion is that news about unannounced and unavailable upgrades to another platform were not the intended payload. I unplugged the Xbox and spun it around in the air, trying to figure out where you would put it. Came up with nothing. The first thing Gabriel thought was,…
