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.

  2. I probably have a foot in each world when it comes to romance in media generally. I think it's very fun to write but whenever I read it, I get the sense - communicated by the hairs on my neck - that I am being observed. The shit people are saying online about this old man, and others, heroes of every conceivable description, is

  3. The June Sticker Pack is available today for Club PA members! You’ll just need to be logged into the PA site with your Club credentials to see it in the store. We made 200 of these packs and each one is

  4. In regards to today's comic, I’m situated firmly on the side of the Neurospicy spectrum that finds things more interesting than people. Pretty girls? No thanks, I'll take a featureless monolith floating in space near Jupiter whose perfect ratio of 1:4:9 is inexplicably filled with stars.

  7. Now that Kingdom Hearts is on PC, it… well, it was on EGS. Now that it's on more PCs via Steam, it's time to figure out which Kingdom Hearts is right for you. I've

  8. The entire Kingdom Hearts collection is now available on Steam and I spent the weekend replaying some of my favorites. The games are divided into three different packages that collect games from various platforms. You can also buy the "...

  11. Apparently shit got pretty heated over at Chez Gabril night before last, as the youngest is now coming into his own - ready to contend with his elder brother in a truly ancient form of combat. I understand that really getting down into the Mortis Gods can have a certain intensity, but I would much rather discuss Tatooine or some

  12. I left Twitter months ago and it has been awesome, I highly recommend it. Now I just post here on Penny Arcade which honestly has a couple million more viewers than my Twitter account ever had. Somehow I still have to deal with Twitter bullshit though. If you still toil in that wretched place you should know someone has

  13. I just received my own merch newsletter, which you can receive also by putting your email into the bow at the bottom right of this very page.  But it had cool stuff in it and I thought I should also post about it here, because it has some Cyberpunkian product - or, as the French say, les produits du ponque-cybre

  14. Except for the time they went extreme with it, Ubisoft's Prince of persia games have essentially been bangers. I haven't played the roguelite one, but it's reviewing well and it's made by Evil Empire, which I'd say are two things that sort of naturally go together.

  15. I’m not sure what games I’ll be playing in the year 2026, unless hiding from packs of wild dogs is a game. I can tell you what I’ve been playing in 2024 though! I’m still not really into any one big game at the moment but I’ve put a few hours into some fun stuff here and there. This is what I’ve been playing:

  17. I just noticed that today marks the 15 year anniversary of the very first Lookouts comic. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long! You can check out more Lookouts stories along with other tales

  18. Friday was the day that everybody decided to say all the deeply held gaming secrets at once, a policy that only echoed for the rest of the weekend and technically - technically - won't even resolve until today at noon my time, when Ubisoft does its thing. My favorite things from them were the pre-RPG Assassin's Creeds and Splinter

  19. I’m actually a big fan of Hero Shooters. I’m not nearly as sick of the genre as many other gamers out there seem to be. My only requirement is that the heroes in said shooter need to look cool and not like normal people they found in a Target or a bunch of cosplayers. Star Wars Hunters is a new Hero Shooter
