Penny Arcade video game webcomic

Penny Arcade is a webcomic focused on video games and video game culture, written by Jerry Holkins and illustrated by Mike Krahulik. The strip features Krahulik and Holkins' cartoon alter egos, John "Gabe" Gabriel and Tycho Brahe, respectively. Their characters spend much of the time playing and commenting on computer and video games, which forms much of the basis of the humor in the strip. As mostly a topical video gaming news comic series, there is little plot or general continuity in Penny Arcade strips, and strips are typically drawn from the perspective of fictional characters within a game or movie.

  1. There has to be some point where Niantic stops calling all the shit in your neighborhood some different thing, but today is not that day.  I'm fucking these monsters up and walking around and shit.  I'm gettin' their beaks and making hats or whatever.  I didn't go that hard on Pokemon GO, which is still

  3. Thanks to your support of the Acquisitions Inc. Kickstarter, there is now a weekly AI series available on the YubTub! 


  4. There are a few things that are a bit weirder than usual when it comes to augurs and signs regarding Titanfall 3 - odd dates in patch notes, a new playlist? - but having endured the last few years, years of psychological famine, belief can be hard work. For some, I guess. For others, it has roughly the same

  6. So, it's probably worth clarifying some things. When we say that we don't understand why Unity is doing the things they're doing, it's not that we don't literally understand. We aren't confused about the reason: it's money and control. That's not the confusing part. Here's where the confusion actually roosts: in seeking those things, they've undertaken a course of action that stands to lose

  8. I think most people are familiar with what has been referred to broadly as "that fucking Unity shit," but just in case, Unity - a ubiquitous development platform among independent creators - announced that they'll be charging a twenty-cent fee in the most likely scenario for that cadre of developers. Dark rituals

  10. I wouldn't say I'm bullish on gaming from the cloud yet, but I've had the kind of experiences with it where I have seen the thesis made manifest. For me, it's largely genre dependent - but If I squint I can absolutely see the proposition as a real thing that meaningfully happens for a lot of people in the real world.

  12. I recovered from the novel Coronavirus just in time to take care of Brenna, who came down with it on Friday. I never had it before, and it's been just as novel as advertised. It's like we have two different illnesses: I had a "cold" so mild I was more or less fine in two days. Brenna is riding a horse made of bones in plaguelands, and she is pregnant with its dark gifts. It's not the same!

  13. New Comic: Starfeels
  14. Morak, being who he is, has suggested to me that Sea of Stars at this late juncture is probably his Game of the Year, or "goaty." That sounds like an adjective, and not a pleasant one - bare minimum, it evokes goats. But in this case, somehow, it's an indication of particular

  15. Today is the last day to feast on the riches available from our show store!  Come get it!

  16. I’m back home and resting up after my first PAX since 2020. It was a great show but holy shit, I was incredibly unprepared physically for the amount of walking I ended up doing.

  18. I'm not like other girls.

  20. At hashtag PAX West, since it starts on Thursday, Monday rolls around and the show is over. It's a new week. Because PAX West (though I suspect we know its true name) extends, yea, into the Monday after, it creates a very peculiar annual moment where I rise unsteadily on the last day of the show, my mind whipping and writhing like a wavy tube man. It is that precise moment that I greet you
