Seriously guys, why the fuck don't we already have a general Penny Arcade thread? EDIT: There should really be a way to fix typos in titles.

Latest comic: Oh, the irony. Pure gold.
We do, just nobody's posted in it since January:

That comic could have probably worked with only the first and third panels.
I really loved the God of War one. Yeah, it's a spoiler, but does it really count as one when Tycho predicted it two weeks before the game game out?
See you in the discussion pages.
It's not a spoiler, Aphrodite lives.
Writer of horse words
“You just got Cthulhu’d!” As long as Star Wars books continue to be wrote, and the writers of Star Wars Movies and TV shows continue to not really care what is in those books, this argument will continue.

I've never played Splinter Cell, but this comic made me laugh. Apparently the Enemy Chatter in SC: Conviction is a wee bit overdone.
Being the sensible man that he is, Tycho has his own perspective on Roger Eberts statements - Ignore the troll. It is a good point, we don't honestly need this guys approval.

On that topic....Yes, some Videogames CAN be considered art, but since it's such a niche in the eyes of the "legitimate" arts community it'll be viewed in the same light as Warhol in his day, or Modern art to the classical viewer. Simply put, any good game can be considered art to the right viewer, but considering Ebert's views as far as the world of film is concerned....of course he wouldn't consider Video Games art, any more than Chopin would consider Rock & Roll music. It's simply as Tycho says, his generation is too far removed from the era of interactive artisitc expression and views it as a passive commodity to be viewed to be experianced rather than one that should be shaped and molded by the viewer itself to form a new perspective in each subsequent interaction.
World's biggest wannabe
And the worst of all would be the possibillity that, one day, we will be too far removed from the young generation to understand what's so great about their jetpack-level art of the day. EDIT: I just remembered that I allready hate the idea of 3D media. Oh, god, I'm getting old already!

People say I have a problem with authority. I say that authority has a problem with me.
Me too, trust me. I haven't seen a 3D movie yet and I will refuse to do so for a long, long time.
Curse You Capt. Marvel!
I hate BAD 3d, Alice in Wonderland needs to be seen in 3D, but many of these new 3D features.....bother me and the idea of 3DTV while Sci-Fi-Y and an interesting concept, starting it on the GOLF channel isn't the way to start a medium.
Newest I had to read the article to figure out that was Gabe, I thought it was just a random man in a suit.
Sapient Blob of Tofu
Coraline was a fucking brilliant 3D movie, because it used the 3D to improve immersion. Every other 3D movie I've seen since has been terrible by comparison since they don't bother to create a proper environment. They just seems to sort of stick things in one of 3 layers and it looks like a moving pop-up book.
Again with the data mining, dear Aunt?
That was Gabe? Wow...
Looking back at it, I can very well recognize it as Gabe, now that I know it's him. The facial expressions and the nose are a bit of a tip-off; the first time I read it, I thought he was just a suit-wearing-guy who was more than a tad unhinged.
I have a message from another time...
Peerless Wind God
I knew it was Gabe instantly. I dunno why, I just never thought about it. That's kind of odd in retrospect.

http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/6/4/universal-analogy/ This one touches on the Gulf oil spill in a typically irreverent way. You laugh because you can't help it.
And then you realize the dark humor behind it and the jab at the government's increasingly odd and ineffective methods of stopping the problem. But you still laugh at it. I may be looking too deep into this one.
