Anthem
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '19 at 11:11 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
Anthem came out eleven days ago and so far I’ve managed to play about 8 hours of it. It’s honestly the game I most want to play right now and I try multiple times a day. Most of the time when I attempt to play I simply can’t log on. Sometimes it will act like it connected and start loading but it’s actually loading a screen that tells me I have lost my connection to the EA servers. Fun! When I do manage to get into the game, every load screen is a 50/50 chance I’ll get disconnected. If I survive the loading screens I’ve never managed to play the game for more than half an hour…

Calibration
Posted by News Fetcher on March 01 '19 at 12:31 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
I like Devolver. I mean, yeah. They definitely have a thing. It might best be described as a “kink.” I tried to find the particular phrasing I had used once before, but I think I might only have used it in my mind: Devolver often publishes the kinds of games your parents would hate. One of the sacred tasks of the creator is to lash parents. Imagine that as a genre. Gabe was vibrating in his extremities when I got into the office, he had something on his Switch, and I told him he might as well put the Switch in the cradle so we could both watch…

Nominal Value

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Okay, so, now he’s done with voice chat? When he just instantiated the policy?! Yes. Now you know the torments I writhe beneath. Now you know his scourge! I think his getting off the microphone was the first step in a generalized malaise about the genre itself. Whenever I try to play an MMO these days, even though I think they’ve generally gotten more humane than they once were, they’re all trying to push the same button my brain and that button doesn’t work anymore. It’s kind of sad; all I remember from the time I spent in them is…

Sea of Thieves
Posted by News Fetcher on February 25 '19 at 12:31 PM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
I’ve been playing a ton of Sea of Thieves lately with my family. The four of us have been playing off and on since launch but in the last month or so we’ve been playing nearly every day. It’s a great game but it’s also an incredible team building exercises for a family. When we first started I will admit we had some frustrating experiences. My boys are 14 and 8 and I love them very much but getting them to work together can be… challenging. Sea of Thieves really requires you to work as a team and that’s been a great lesson for my kids. Early on we would get into trouble and…

Root Issues
Posted by News Fetcher on February 25 '19 at 12:31 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
At lunch, while Kiko and I took turns attacking the banchan, we tried to get Gabriel to try Crackdown 3. I’d never been able to get Gabriel to try the other ones, but because Crackdown was free with Game Pass (here, “free” means “ten dollars a month”) it seemed like we might finally have him cornered. He did download it, which I appreciated, and he also hated it, which I expected. There’s a similar dynamic at play when one attempts to make a child eat something green; somewhere, deep down, there is the hope that each inoculation brings them…

Two Out Of Three
Posted by News Fetcher on February 22 '19 at 01:51 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
This is almost exactly the conversation we had with a beleaguered Rando, one whose only crime was being matched with us. We were dead perhaps two hundred seconds after we landed, which is much, much worse than our average I’d say. Every malevolent force aligned to shear this young man’s head clean off. Arguably, in a cosmic sense, I was the blade - and Gabriel, the hand that held it. I haven’t been on an open channel since the invention of The Party, so when Gabriel suggested we join rounds without the use of Discord - fully abraded by the savage grit of…

Nite Time Is The Rite Time
Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '19 at 01:51 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Fortnite was always trying to get me to add 2fa, like… a lot, but it wasn’t until Apex hit that they started pushing free Battle Passes on me. My email was full of it, and through the blinds as I was waking up I thought I saw a cloud shaped like a Fortnite entreaty. Then, when I ironically opened Tik Tok it came up at the very beginning, obscuring the e-girl factories, Senzawan permutations, and the unlikely, enduring vigor of Mia Khalifa. I heard someone whose job it was to promote games tell me that if your game isn’t near the top of Twitch, it doesn’t…

Level99 Games In the Studio
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '19 at 11:11 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
We have sponsored streams today, a couple of them more or less back to back, one for a game I own but have been too intimidated to learn and one for a game I have taught many people to play. It’s all happening on our Twitch thing. Thanks for stopping by, Level99! The first is Millennium Blades, a board game about collectible card games(?). In the fiction, a CCG - also called Millennium Blades - has been in print for over a thousand years. The game starts on pre-release night, and as the game progresses you collect cards, trade cards, enter tournaments, and try to…

Computer Stuff!
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '19 at 11:11 AM
By Gabe@penny-arcade.com (Gabe) from Penny Arcade:
The last time I really took PC gaming seriously was honestly around the time the comic strip started. So, about twenty years ago I guess. I can still remember keeping up to date on the latest improvements in Voodoo graphics cards. As time went by I played on consoles more and more until I had fallen off the PC entirely. I usually had a laptop or something that could run a game or two but I lost track of where the technology went. About a year ago I decided I wanted to give PC gaming another try and so I bought a computer for the sole purpose of playing games. We even made a comic about it at…

By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
EA’s premium digital offerings - EA Access on Xbox and Origin Access on PC - grant early play for their titles. Except when it doesn’t work, and you got the same error message people were getting in the betas. I once suggested that EA games came with “free misery,” nearly ten full years ago, and it’s a policy they’ve maintained with pride. The problem isn’t with subscription services or VIP access or whatever; it’s their bits, they can apportion them however they want. And clubs are fun, I like clubs. But it also has to…

Champion Champions
Posted by News Fetcher on February 15 '19 at 12:31 PM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
The main new things I’ve learned about Apex Legends are as follows: one, the Wingman is the return of the old Pistol from Halo. Remember that? How it was a pistol, but also kind of a sniper rifle? Yeah. Except here there’s also a mod for it called a Skullsplitter; I’ll let you tumble to its purpose on your own. It is surprisingly, perhaps even comically effective. Two, the Ping system we already said was great is even cooler than I thought, because it works in places I never thought it could. By which I mean, the inventory…

Benifitar Also Good
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '19 at 11:11 AM
By Tycho@penny-arcade.com (Tycho) from Penny Arcade:
Gabe heard Titanfall downstairs, but on multiple axes - none of which made sense. His sons were playing multiplayer, which they were able to find enough players for somehow, and Kara was playing the single player campaign. The failure of Titanfall 2 is generally laid at the feet of Electronic Arts for not managing their stable of releases strategically, though there are many fans of the first Titanfall who’ll say - independent of any business considerations - that changes to titan shielding and vertically truncated map design didn’t help either. Either way, it’s…
