We Made A Mechwarrior Online Guide
Posted by News Fetcher on December 12 '12 at 01:30 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
Although Guide should probably be in quotation marks. The game has a dogged, uncompromising insistence on simulating a BattleMech as opposed to making twitch shooter times, which is fairly noble in the current business climate. They could have sought a larger audience by making it less, well, MechWarrior, and they chose not to. They chose instead to find their audience, and damn the torpedoes. I had a lot of fun “researching” while we put the project together; it’s not inconceivable that you may like it also.

Dickerdoodles 2012
Posted by News Fetcher on December 10 '12 at 12:00 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Rejoice perverts, it’s Dickerdoodle season again!



That’s right It’s that glorious time of year when our thoughts turn to penis shaped cookies and frosting that looks like semen. So get in the kitchen and start baking some sweet sweet dessert porn!

I’ll post my favorites here on the site and then pick three winners. Those lucky erotic bakers will each receive a prize pack full of Penny Arcade merchandise.



One last thing, before you snap a photo of yourself deep-throating a cookie prick and mail it to me, I want you to remember that these will be posted on the Internet. If that’s cool with you then please send me your photo and be sure and put “Dickerdoodle12” 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.



show me your worst/best you sickos!

The Vault Of Winter, Part Two
Posted by News Fetcher on December 10 '12 at 11:30 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
I like Acquisitions Incorporated a lot. On some level, it was an advertisement I suppose, but I think it’s one of the good ones and the kind of thing I’d be getting up to anyway. The series we’re doing now isn’t work for hire, or a partnership along the lines of Scott’s Table Titans - this one’s on the house, which is no doubt bad business, but we can’t leave these characters well enough alone. Anything official this year is a part of their Underdark push anyway, and the characters in Vault of Winter basically go to the polar opposite of that.

It’s a very strange thing to have them be born in one place, in one context, and then try to go about the process of making them Real Boys. Like any other time we indulge ourselves in an extended piece, now I don’t want to stop. Completely independent of any specific game, there’s no ceiling on the shit I could pull off with this crew. Plus, armed with Kiko’s official sigil:


there’s no end to the branding opportunities, one of which could be for use as a literal brand. Here is THE VAULT OF WINTER, Part Two.

One of very few scenarios where I can cosplay in an utterly sanctioned way, clad thickly in ironic plate, the Live games - roleplaying as theater - work far better than I would have suspected. People watch other people play games all the time, so I should have recognized that proxy-play has a fairly storied history and taken it from there. It’s not actually that weird; and it works so well that I suspect it must not be that uncommon, even if I’ve never heard of it happening somewhere else.

The Vault Of Winter, Part One
Posted by News Fetcher on December 07 '12 at 10:00 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We’ve always wanted to make a longer form comic with Acquisitions Incorporated, and with the holidays coming up we had an opportunity to drop it in. I think it’s, like… eight comics, and it could have been longer, but I we decided that was sufficiently ridiculous. And we have a very high threshold for ridiculousness. So think about that.
We give you: Acquisitions Incorporated, in THE VAULT OF WINTER.

The annual Child’s Play Charity Dinner & Auction was a barnburner, not literally of course; indeed, I suspect that on the contrary any nearby barns would be healed. Our collective “high score” for the evening was two hundred and seventy thousand dollars, which puts us perilously close to our goal if not beyond it. I usually don’t bid on Main Stage items, but I did this time; a ring of actual gold from Pat Rothfuss, which came with A Favor attached, to be redeemed at the time of the buyer’s choosing. I don’t take a favor offered from a writer lightly, so I was willing to pay, but people knew I was willing to pay, and I suspect I may have been bid up a bit. I’m not entirely comfortable saying how much; suffice it to say, I did my duty. For several years. In advance. In fact, I might be done.

I made this year’s Child’s Play purchases earlier in the day, with the grievous damage wrought by my Tychpos appended, so… wow. I’m glad I’m already sitting down. Let’s take a look:

New Figurines
Posted by News Fetcher on December 05 '12 at 11:15 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
We did not expect to have these done in time for the holiday season but they showed up in the warehouse yesterday. So now our newest figurine is on the store and ready for your buying. It is actually a set of two that come in one box. They are based on the 16-bit Tycho and Gabe sprites from RSPD. We thought they would look cool as 3D figures and I think they came out great.



</a>

Each one was painted by hand, which looks good but takes a long time, so we got a few finished and rushed them here. We only have about 200 sets for now.

Remember that if you want your order delivered by Christmas, you should order from our store by midnight on these shipping deadlines:

US Domestic:

First-Class and Parcel Post - December 11th

UPS Ground - December 14th

Priority Mail - December 18th

Lookouts Issue #3!
Posted by News Fetcher on December 05 '12 at 10:30 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Issue 3 of our Lookouts comic book is now available online via Comixology and in stores. I think this is probably my favorite issue so far. In it we learn Voel’s back story and get to see the boys take on the bridge troll.

If you’re a fan of the Lookouts you really should be reading this book. We’re fleshing out the world in all sorts of cool ways. The artwork by Robb Mommaerts is beautiful. He does an incredible job of filling the Eyrewood with strange beasts. Every panel is full of little hidden details that you won’t notice the first time through. Ben McCool’s writing is also great. He’s bringing so much character to these boys and the beasts they encounter. Each issue also contains an honor badge section in the back that describes a specific badge, its various levels and how a Lookout might acquire them. The whole world is just really coming together in this book.

Here’s a look at a few of the pages from Issue 3.

By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
We used to have a private Minecraft server, but maintaining one of those and hosting a curated selection of that community’s prodigious mod output can take as much time as you let it, and I think that ultimately we decided that it was a “time eating machine what eated up our time.” So Gabriel the Younger started connecting to public servers, which marks the crossing of so many thresholds at once that it’s the sort of moment you collect for posterity.
Gabriel the Elder was quick to tell him that the language he sees on there wasn’t fit for common use, but the young man spun that as a plus; now he would know what words not to say, which is a very interesting sales pitch.
We knew that “online rules” were something we wanted to do for the comic, but the strip as you see it very nearly didn’t happen. I wrote it out this way, but was afraid to tell him what I had written because it’s a little… close, so I asked him if he had his phone because then I could send it to him and I wouldn’t have to read it aloud. He didn’t. At the same time, he had come up with something very similar, but only got halfway through the idea before he said it was dumb, but I made him tell me just in case we were actually on the same page. We’ve been making stuff for almost twenty years now, and this thing almost didn’t happen because we were each, independently, afraid to be honest. There is no doubt a lesson in all this but I refuse to learn it.
