I'm kinda afraid

Postby [Edit] on Thu Apr 21, 2005 1:14 am

Kinda afraid that PA will be no more. Only kinda, though.

I waded through the tempid cesspools of the forums to find what I already had.
Random conjectures and poorly phrased guesses.

In internet land, this Friday will be like my Christmas, in that they'll unwrap this shenanigan, or shoot me in the face.

Not to say I get shot in the face on Christmas. Just. The suspense.

Anyway. Kinda afraid.

Err, I was going to edit it, but I forgot.

http://www.penny-arcade.com

But, anyways, for anyone who cares, a mod posted this idea in the forums:

So most days, the PA comic is a really funny joke that doesn't make any sense unless you read the accompanying humorless newspost.

Today the PA newspost is a really funny joke that doesn't make any sense unless you read the accompanying humorless comic.

Intruiging.


I know I'm getting way too into this, but its fun to just go along with it.

Either way, if its just a ploy, I get to (utterly shamlessley) plug one of my favorite comics about gamers who play games and are funny. Kinda like us.

Edit: I'm bad at quoting for some reason.

I like PA. A lot.

What are you talking about though? I seemed to have missed something.

I suspect that Gabe has just gone for a week away etc. and they decided to turn it into a bit of a joke. It's all a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Also, the middle panel in the latest comic "I slept with a bird and now I have the avian flu." (from memory) is pure class.

ROLL ON FRIDAY!

(from reading off the site) It says 'bird flu'.

I read Tycho's news three times a week, if for no other reason than to learn a few words. Their individual comics were awsome, but I must say the familiar drawings in Gabe's wins my heart. Plus the last panel in that one is perfection.

Yeah, I wouldn't like PA half as much if the newsposts weren't there.
As the dude who does Questionable Content said:
"I don't know if I have ever actually linked to Penny Arcade in a newspost before, at any rate it's been a long time, but damn if Monday's comic and attached newspost weren't some of the most brilliant writing Tycho has ever pulled off. He's the William Gibson of webcomic authors- it almost doesn't matter what he's saying, the deliciousness of how he says it is what you're there for."

Well, looks like Psy was probably right. There's nothing to worry about.

Yeah, I saw this morning. Everythings fine for PA.

BUT, there is an EB Games and Gamestop right down the street.

I'm glad I've been Gamestop 4LIFE, 'cause if not, oh mans.

Because. Uh. GS bought EB. You know. Todays comic.

Nevermind.

Okay, every single post I've read by you so far has been in the form of a question.

Oh, I don't. At all. Yet!

Maybe I'll do something like you did?

Or reveal horrible secrets?

Maybe I'll put some awsome shit in there, to mix things up.
