Another fun game
Posted by News Fetcher on December 21 '13 at 06:15 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Max: Curse of the Brotherhood just hit the Xbox One and I’ve played a few hours of it. It’s a side scrolling platform game with a bunch of physics based puzzles. You use a magic marker to draw various elements into the game world. It’s a fun mechanic and I’ve been really impressed with the puzzles so far. With all the drawing going on it’s a crime this game isn’t on the Wii U but it works okay with a controller. If it was on the PS4 I’d stream it but It’s Xbox One so you’ll have to make do with the game clips it records automatically and uploads. If you check out my profile on Live you should be able to watch some of them and get a feel for the game. My XBL handle is just Gabe and I think if you follow me you can watch my clips? Maybe? I honestly have no idea how it works.

It’s $15 and totally worth it in my opinion.

Wow

Tycho was right. Dungeon Endless is something special! I can’t believe how cool it is for a game that’s not even close to being done! You can grab it on Steam early access right now and I recommend you do just that.

Republique
Posted by News Fetcher on December 20 '13 at 02:46 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I’ve got heaps of boardgames I’ve Kickstarted, and I mean heaps. It’s fucking sick, and not sick like a 180 Kickflip Psychonator off the top deck. It’s sick like I should probably be taking some kind of medicine to tamp it down. Additional medicines, I should say.

I’ve backed a few videogames also, they usually end up mentioned somewhere on here. FTL was the first to come out, and it was great, but it was by no means the most ambitious (read: “crazy,” “impossible”) of the ones on offer. Republique was one that I didn’t expect to make funding - they wanted a half million, when most people were trying to get half a half million, which some people call a “quarter million.” And the first part of it is actually out, for real, really out, for iPhone and iPad. Computers get it later, and I think those will be solid, but this is the thesis: a game about the surveillance state, for which the device you’re holding is actually a prop.
This is a game made by tested veterans, curious if the mobile space will endure the kind of sneaky, stealthy, puzzle-y games that have homes on personal computers and consoles. Can it? Republique definitely has its own logic, but I felt rewarded for learning it. I backed it at the level that lets you show up as a guard, so if you check it out, keep your eyes peeled.

I had no idea
Posted by News Fetcher on December 20 '13 at 01:15 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I play Killzone: Shadow Fall multiplayer every night. I love it. Maybe you do the same thing I do when you really get into a game? I hit up all the forums for it just because I can’t seem to absorb enough information about it. I checked out the Shadow Fall forums and saw that people tend to be pretty upset with it. There are apparently frame rate issues, they have “ruined the sniper class”, the SP is “mediocre at best”, it’s simply “wretched” and I guess almost no one is playing it online.

All of that came as a real surprise to me. Had I not tried to check out the Shadowfall community I would have had no idea it was such a bad game. Now I feel sort of weird for liking it so much. Am I just an idiot (don’t answer that) with no idea what makes a game good? I honest to God wondered for a bit if I should stop playing it. Can you believe that? I mean, I don’t want to play something that suck right? That’s ridiculous though! I’m having so much fun playing it that I don’t really care if it’s “bad”. Like I said I play it every night for an hour or so and I’ve even streamed it a couple times. Everytime I stream I see a few people mention that they are surprised at how fun it looks. They thought it was junk but after watching for a bit they wanted to give it a shot. I guess they read the forums and the reviews and just assumed it wasn’t worth their time.

It’s pretty sad when you think about it. I’m very fortunate in that I’m in a position where I buy all this stuff no matter what because it’s my job. I don’t buy games based on what I read online and thank goodness I don’t. I bet I’d have skipped right over Killzone just like a lot of other people seemed to, and I’d have missed out on one of my favorite games of the year.

The Statute
Posted by News Fetcher on December 20 '13 at 12:15 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We have been known to make the occasional comic.

Snow isn’t really a guarantee where I live, so the novelty typically associated with its arrival is further compounded. If you are a young person for whom the base novelty (Bn) of the product has not wavered, and this mysterious residue has the power to keep you home from school, we cannot wonder at its psychic grip on our youth.
But if you’ve always lived here, and then became an adult via the usual process, you never had an opportunity to learn the admittedly counter-intuitive sort of driving that will allow you to not destroy your car. Or my car. I’m placing special emphasis on the second part. So I’m going to type this at home.
In the same way that Platformers or Tower Defense used to be the thing the indie coterie would chew up and then fashion into elaborate geometries, we are one hundred percent up to our ass in roguelikes.

You can earn the COMBO BREAKER pin by completing the “On a Roll” challenge starting today (December 20th ) and ending on January 17th, 2014. To complete this challenge, you need to win 4 consecutive Ranked Matches!

Scarves! (Scarfs?) And Shipping Stuff
Posted by News Fetcher on December 18 '13 at 12:45 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Today is the last day for what Brian calls “USPS Priority Mail (Domestic) Shipping,” after which you’re going through UPS and shit gets progressively more brutal cost-wise. But! We just got our scarves in, and by leveraging the Top Secret, impossible to decrypt code “w1nterscarf” you may secure an additional twenty percent off, regardless of the season you actually wear the aforementioned scarf in. Behold!



Our Remaining 15th Anniversary Scarves



And A Tycho Scarf



Also A Gabe Scarf

Apparently, exposure to all these scarves has caused Brian to contract early onset scarf disease. Pray for him.

Requiem For A Stream
Posted by News Fetcher on December 18 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
I’ve been having a ton of fun streaming my Playstation gaming via Twitch. It’s fun chatting with you guys while I play and it’s quickly turning into one of my favorite features of the PS4. Usually I’ll drop the Twitch stream in here on the front page just before I start gaming and I end up with three or four hundred folks hanging out in the chat. I’ve had a few requests to archive the streams but that’s not currently available. From what I understand it’s a feature that Twitch is planning on adding to the PS4 streams in the future.

So for now you can follow my channel or just keep an eye on the front page. lately my game of choice has been Killzone Multiplayer. I’ll be in there again tonight around 9 or 9:30 PST if you want to join me. You can watch right here:

Watch live video from CWgabriel on www.twitch.tv

Or head over to my Twitch channel and join in the chat. I’m sure this will jinx it but I’ve been super impressed with the quality of the chat room. I’ve seen almost no jerks and actually had some great conversations about games and stuff going on at PA. Obviously now that I said that, tonight will be wall to wall assholes but oh well.

Like I said tonight I’ll be playing KZ multiplayer but if there’s a game you’d like to see, just shoot me a mail. If I get a lot of people asking for something I’m happy to throw it in a play that for a night.

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.

Posted by News Fetcher on December 13 '13 at 11:00 AM
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.
