I suspect, speaking purely personally, my problem with episodic games is going to be pretty much my problem with episodic TV. I just don’t have time to actually experience them before the next one comes along. Such is the case of Penny Arcade Adventures, whose first episode I’ve really meant to give a shot and I haven’t got around yet. And now comes the second one, complete with 300Mb demo for you to download. Man!
For those who require some manner of trailer before making such a commitment of bandwidth, you’ll find the trailer beneath the cut.
So – what was everyone’s actual take on the first Penny Arcade Adventures? As in, for those who played the game, not those who just decided against it due to a dislike of Penny Arcade (As I think the Pro/Anti Penny Arcade thread got messy enough last time). Is it worth me going back to now, even in this ridiculously busy period? Or can it wait a little longer?
Oh – if it takes your fancy, you can buy either episode from their site.
