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. Tycho: I'm not even saying this is hot shit.  I mean, I have access to the Reddit; I know what's up.  What I'm saying is that I don't make shit in games.  But I make things in this one. (Oh, and yeah.  There's some lumber resting in that crook up top, like a jaunty cap.  It's very high up.  I'll get it later.) (CW)TB
  2. Tycho: Okay. So. Since the last time we talked on Monday, where I was like, "I guess Valheim sold a million copies this week," they just announced that they sold another million copies. You know, sometimes you look at the roadmap for an Early Access game you've bought, and you wonder if you're gonna see any of that stuff. I think we might actually see all that stuff. I can't...

  4. Tycho: I bought Minecraft when it was ten dollars. At least, I think it was ten dollars. It was close to that. It was about that many years ago, so don't hold me to it. I think it's really cool but I never actually lost myself to it. Valheim feels like Minecraft to me, except I actually fell in. I think the first time I ever saw "PS1, but as a vibe" was Due Process, a 5v5 tactical...

  6. Tycho: I'll talk more about Valheim later, after I've played more. But I'd say that's the main takeaway - it's my intention to play a lot more, with more people. The most important thing to discuss at this juncture is the strange polearm in Wednesday's strip, up in the attic: When Mikhail was drawing the strip on the stream, talk turned - as it invariably does - to...
  7. New Comic: Full Coverage
  8. Tycho: I was playing Gunfire Reborn with Gabriil and Kara on Monday, and their youngest rounded it out. He's good at shit like this so he was an excellent addition. I asked him what he thought of the game, and he said that it was pretty good, but that it copied a lot of stuff from Fortnite. I was curious to hear this. I most often see Gunfire Reborn depicted as the twisted and unnatural...

  10. Tycho: Nobody can do it! All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. It would take a while to go through what I actually mean by that. I grew up in a context where you'd say something like this, like… on Tuesday. The v45 version of myself has, in the manner of a tireless switchboard operator, hooked these metaphysical concepts up on the panel to things with more general...
