I’m sorry about Tycho
Posted by News Fetcher on December 16 '13 at 01:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
So I had to look up “concomitant” while reading Tycho’s post. I was sort of surprised by how specific the definition was.



In all seriousness it’s a great word. Me singing out loud is concomitant with playing Dan Fogelberg’s Same Old Lang Syne. Tycho will learn just how concomitant it is when I put the song on repeat until 5pm.

Last Day To Ship Express Mail International, USPS First Class, USPS Standard
Posted by News Fetcher on December 13 '13 at 02:45 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Brian tells me orders of this kind will get in just under the wire, so please take advantage if you haven’t already. The main bit is that it’s the last day for International Orders to get there by Christmas. The rest of the cut-off dates for shipping are available at the top of the store. Holiday Rewards of various kinds are also described there. There are also rumors out there, dogged rumors, of secret gifts being secreted in some orders!

Of course, we couldn’t possibly comment.

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We were talking the other day about the kind of shit you can get up to with a PS4 having only purchased the box, and how freemium stuff like Warframe or DC Universe Online can mollify wastrels who might otherwise turn to vandalism or hard drink.

We also spent a lot of time with the box initially just checking out the base community features, “meeting” people in a strange way, and finding those whose mystic vibrations we were attuned with. There was a dad we watched a few times, and realized the extent to which this is a person you do not see; one sees the young becoming famous in this profoundly modern way, youths of every conceivable configuration, but “dude grooming his larvae” was not a creature in what you might call the base set. We appreciated this until he flipped hard after a close game of Domination and felt supremely chastised for our prior affections.

It is very funny, in that way which not entirely so, to think that video content which has gotten so many people in trouble on YouTube is literally enabled by the press of a single button on the Playstation. There is essentially a button more or less labeled “Infringe” that you push and nobody gives a shit, until such time as someone might see part of one boob.

Same As it Ever Was
Posted by News Fetcher on December 12 '13 at 10:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Mike Fehlauer is now Mike Hayes, since he got married, but it’s been hard to make the shift because his nickname came from his old last name - Feh, pronounced “fay,” and it’s been in circulation for about a decade. I’ve tried to substitute other names of similar weight, like in Raiders of the Lost Ark, but “Hay” or “Haylauer” never took. I lucked out when I changed my last name because no nickname has ever stuck for me, ever; there was nothing to change. Anyway, he’s at his folks’ house on vacation, and apparently they are a people who collect books. He found this page about a moral panic related to the reading of “dime novels,” and I thought it might be instructive.

Automata Silverside
Posted by News Fetcher on December 11 '13 at 07:45 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I’ve been working on Automata for about the last month or so. That should mean I have a lot done but the problem is I keep drawing and then re-drawing the first two pages. I just can’t settle on anything I’m happy with and I’m starting to go a little crazy. I’ve got probably six completely different versions of these first couple of pages. I’ve tried some crazy stuff and done a few that are closer to my normal style. I thought I’d share a couple of the most recent iterations with you guys so you can see the process.

So here is the first panel of page two of Automata.



Or maybe this is the first panel of page two of Automata.



Right now I’m leaning towards option one with the snow. I want this to feel like an old movie. I want the characters to feel like actors in a black and white movie from the 40’s. I also like the Noir feel of the second one with the rain though and how gritty it feels.

I don’t know.

If you have a favorite shoot me a tweet or an email and let me know.

Child’s Play dinner
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '13 at 03:45 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
The Child’s Play Charity dinner was last week and I had an incredible time. This year Scott and Kris took over hosting duties and I was a big fan. Since I wasn’t on stage this was the first year I actually got to sit at a table and eat dinner with my friends and family. I enjoy running the auction but I have to say actually attending the dinner is pretty awesome.

I think the craziest part of the evening was watching Tycho bid on and then win my sketchbook. A few people asked me afterwards why he bought it if he can just look at it whenever he wants. Well actually he can’t look at it. 99% of the stuff in my sketchbook doesn’t get shown to anyone. he’s always trying to peek over my shoulder but I do a good job of hiding it from him. So not only did he do something nice for charity but now he can thumb through my sketch book right in front of me. Well played Tycho. Well played.

I tried bidding on a few items including a trip to Bungie to play Destiny, A Daughter’s of the Eyrewood painting by Katie Rice, and some Halo Mega Bloks. Despite my best efforts and a willingness to blow my budget I lost all of them. The amount of money getting tossed around Thursday night was pretty staggering. Towards the end of the night I actually started bidding on the appearance in a PA strip auction. I figured it would save us a ton of time if the Child’s Play comic next year just had to have Gabe in it. I was destroyed by a very generous Wil Shipley though who picked up what I think is his fourth PA strip.

After the auction we all got together in the lobby for some pictures. We took a family photo that I think turned out really nice. I think the PA family cleans up pretty good.

Who wore it best?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
My wife will deny it but she reads US magazine sometimes. I will occasionally find them in the house and thumb through them to see what Kim and Kanye are up to or if Miley really did that thing I heard about. They do this thing called “Who Wore It Best?” where they catch two celebrities wearing the same clothes and then ask their style experts to vote on who wore it best. Why am I telling you this bullshit?

Well this happens a lot at Penny Arcade. I don’t mean the public shaming of someone’s inability to wear clothes better than another person. I mean wearing the same clothes as your friends. Lots of us here at the office are big fans of the First Party sweater. At our morning merchandise meeting today Robert snapped this pic of Kiko, me and Brian. We had no idea.



So who wore it best?

Dickerdoodles 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '13 at 09:45 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
It is that time of year again. No I’m not talking about Christmas. I’m talking about Dickerdoodles!



That’s right, it’s time for all you sickos to put on your aprons (and nothing else) so you can bake some sweet sweet cookie pornography!



Over the years we’ve had some pretty amazing entries. You can look through all the past galleries right here. Be warned these cookies are very NSFW!



As always I will pick my favorite three and give each of those lucky winners a prize pack full of PA merch.

I want to remind you all that anything you send me can and probably will get posted on the site. I know you want to gargle that gingerbread dong but think about that photo living on the internet forever.



If that’s cool with you then please send me your photo and be sure and put “Dickerdoodle13” in the subject line. If you don’t use the right subject line I can’t promise I’ll see your shameful acts. You’ve got until Dec, 21st to send in your entries



So once again show me your worst/best you monsters!

Game of the Year
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '13 at 12:15 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I didn’t watch the VGX awards live but I checked out all the coverage online after the event. When it comes to awards you’re never going to get everyone to agree. Even knowing that, I have to say I was really surprised at some of their decisions. I’m not going to go category by category but I figured I’d talk about game of the year.

GTA V picked up this award and I can understand why, but personally I’d have given it to The Last of Us. From game play to visuals to story this game had it all. I can still remember finishing it and just sitting on the couch with tears in my eyes. I actually woke up my wife who was already in bed so I could tell her how it wrapped up. The Last of Us moved me in a way that very few games (or books, or movies for that matter) ever have. Maybe it delivers more of an emotional payload if you’re a parent.

Not giving Last of Us game of the year seems even stranger to me considering they named Naughty Dog “studio of the year”. So the best studio didn’t make the best game? Don’t get me wrong, I think GTA is an incredible technical achievement but The Last of Us is more than that. Lots of people talk about the sorts of experiences games can deliver. As gamers we all know that games are art. That they can deliver stories on par with movies and even surpass them because of the interactivity. We’ve always believed that stuff but The Last of Us is proof.

I played so much good stuff this year it’s hard to pick a winner but I really believe The Last of Us was the best. I think Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons comes in a very close second with Ni No Kuni and Mario 3D World close behind. It really was a great year for games and with two brand new consoles in my living room I’m ridiculously excited for 2014.

Hey Tycho, what’s your game of the year? I’m guessing it was Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Changes
Posted by News Fetcher on December 06 '13 at 04:00 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The 18th of last month was Penny Arcade’s 15th Anniversary.

There was never a lot of time to think about what we wanted Penny Arcade to be like. It’s like us, I guess, by default; sort of a mess. We just tried to make the best decisions we could, any time a decision was called for. It doesn’t always work out. And sometimes, you do things because “that’s what you do.” You “grow your business,” for example. You “extend verticals.” I honestly don’t know about the second one. I’ll ask Robert. But at 15 years, we’re taking a minute to figure out what we want to be when we grow up.

Child’s Play and PAX have lives of their own, now. They’re vital, and they need an obsessive level of care. We will do everything in our power to ensure that these things outlast us by a wide margin.
But I don’t think I want to “grow my business” anymore; I sort of want to do the opposite. And I’m tired, sick to death, of saying “Maybe Someday” when it comes to the things we really want to make. So, we’re not going to do that anymore. The next year is going to be a pretty big one, one of the biggest yet; it’s the year the previous fifteen have been leading up to in the literal sense but also in other ways. I think they’re going to be “big years” from now on, frankly. And it hurts pretty bad, but I don’t know where PATV as a “channel” for third party shows and The Penny Arcade Report fit into that. We’ll be shutting those things down at the end of this year.
