Penny Arcade Leak Describes Diversity Hub For PAX

Some interesting, possibly very positive news has leaked our way from Penny Arcade. We received some documents showing their plans to create something called the Roll For Diversity Hub & Lounge for forthcoming PAXes. A place where people can get information and support about all manner of topics, issues relating to "women, LGBTQ, people of color, disabled people, and mental health issues in gaming". It's…

Feature: Penny Arcade Vs The People

To Boycott PAX Or Not To Boycott PAX?

Editor's note: RPS will no longer be covering PAX events. We believe that the values of the company operating those events conflict with ours, and as such we can no longer endorse their actions by providing coverage of PAX events. An explanation of this can be read here. However, others argue that attending can be an effective way to respond to the company's poor behaviour,…

Finale: Penny Arcade – OTR-SPOD Episode Four

The fourth episode of Penny Arcade: Otter Spod will be the final chapter in the comic saga. There's a good chance anyone who played the game, or followed development, already knew that number four was the finale, but I've been under a rock playing strategy games instead. I really should emerge from time to time, not only because it'd be good for my posture, but…

On The Ledge: Penny Arcade Ep 3 DLC & 4 Inbound

The increasingly incongrously-named Penny Arcade are to continue their Zeboyd-developed series of roleplaying adventures, both with a fourth game and a pair of free expansions for the well-received third. The second DLC for On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness Episode 3 will apparently detail the fate of the character you/we/I/he/she/they/it/your mum played as in the first two episodes of the abandoned Hothouse-developed trilogy. Closure of…

Feature: Crowd Control

Power To The People: The Trouble With Crowd-Sourcing

Crowd-sourcing. Crowd-funding. The next big thing. A flash-in-the-pan fad. Call it whatever you want, but right now, the gaming industry's fallen in love with the idea of putting its fate in the hands of heaping piles of people. Double Fine Adventure was - so clearly that you could see it from space - the point where everyone took notice. Shockingly, crowds did, in fact, exist…

Penny Arcade Adventures Returns In Hands Of Zeboyd

The Penny Arcade games were, perhaps, not all of the good in the world in one place. But there's some rather splendid news afoot. What had clearly been abandoned is to return, but now in the hands of the rather brilliant Zeboyd Games. They who made the utterly fab Cthulhu Saves The World. They've been put in charge of the ever-hideously named Penny Arcade Adventures:…

Gabe Newell Ponders “If we have to sell hardware we will”

Penny Arcade's new games journalism site (note the lack of capitalisation), the PA Report, has kicked off with an interview with Uncy Gabe of Valve's new beard. Most interviews with the newly hirsute Newell have some form of forward looking speculation about the industry, because that's the way his mind works, and Newell's take on hardware shows that the Valve hivemeind are contemplating how best…

Four-Play: Telltale’s New Game Teased

Lauri was the first to mail us with news that Telltale are teasing us furiously via the medium of Gametrailers. A short footage stating "Bet you never thought these guys would get together", followed by silhouettes of Him from Penny Arcade, Him from Sam 'n' Max, Him from Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People and - unless our eyes deceive us - him from…

Plants Versus Zombies Versus Evony

Oh God. Thanks to the forum, I'm advert-blogging. Which can only mean one of two things: i) Post-Darkfall review I've totally lost it or ii) it's an awesome advert that needs immortalisation. Or maybe both. Anyway, Plants Versus Zombies has a new ad-campaign. It's been seen over at the Penny Arcade - maybe they did it? If so, well done you, Mr Penny and Mr…
