Yeah, they have those in Berkeley, Eugene, Austin, etc. every so-called "bohemian" town has them and they're not that bohemian. Excepting Savannah which is legit bohemian. Portland isn't weird by any stretch.

None of these "weird" cities are weird... a weird city, to me, indicates a level of surrealism that makes you want to keep your distance from it if at all possible.

Most of these yuppie cities are quirky... you want weird, go to Detroit. It's Terry Gilliam's film "Brazil" come to life.

When was the last time you were in Detroit and what did you do?

Penny Arcade are like a club for self referential people who need other people to pat them on the back and say it's ok you're not a geek.

Or it's a web comic.

Fair enough, but I don't hate PA, I hate seeing this pointless debate pop up every few weeks....

I assumed you must hate it because you twice said it (Penny Arcade) had nothing to do with gaming when it's a gaming related comic, that's runs a gamer charity that also donates games, they've made 4 of their own video games, and run multiple gaming conventions which are each the largest in the U.S.

I mean I guess that's almost nothing to do with gaming.

Penny Arcade are as much Gamers as I am the King of Odyssia.
to me Penny Arcade are not game related.

I know you're explaining this with a "well that's just like my opinion man" but you're still wrong.

Man I hate Vince Vaughn.
Vince Vaughn is as much of an actor as I am the Pope.
To me Vince Vaughn is not movie related.

I knew it wouldn't be a PG rated bullshit reality toilet bowl. I despise reality shows, but this was pretty funny. Mike and Jerry were hilarious overactors, and some of the stuff they made the artists do was funny.

The way they badger the contestants during the elimination rounds is great. I love when they shout out the wrong time like, "You have 15 minutes! - until you have 1 hour remaining." Most of the stuff is pretty tame and a majority of it is actually serious questions... But to go along well with the Op Ed post here, in one ep Jerry told a contestant that tomorrow's challenge would be a contest to see how many taser shots he could take to the shaft of his dick. And then right after Mike asks him if he's ever had his prostate stimulated... "You cum and cum," he goes on. The competition is after all to work at Penny-Arcade for a year being paid to make your strip so I guess the contestants need to be down with their kind of humor.

The exchange I'm describing is at: 14:05
But the whole thing is worth watching in context.

Yea the interface is a lot different, it was better before, not sure why they did what they did.... To make sure my picks saved, I always move to the next week and come back, and make sure they are still in place. Never happened that they weren't, I am just not a fan of dynamic pages like that.

Haha I'm the exact same way. My programmer mind is like, "I bet that didn't work... I've been given no indication." And then I have to verify even though there's almost never an issue.

This is actually the first I've heard of this. I never knew PA had this much baggage in the trunk! Never was a fan of online "comic" strips but I dodged a bullet with this one. Shame, too, since PA always sounded like a cool expo.

I'm still pissed they did two different kickstarters despite having an empire of comics, clothes, books, posters, dvds, toys, conventions, comics publishers solicit to tie into a game, and now fucking collectable pins. But they need kickstarter funds!!!!! Hell, the second KS they set with a $10 goal, so that no matter how little was pledged, they could collect.


Strip Search is their excellent competition reality show that was made possible because of the first Kickstarter. It was one among many projects that they said they'd be able to do if they didn't have to worry about selling ads (which was a major portion of their business in time and resources) but I'd say that Strip Search alone was worth the Kickstarter. Everybody should really check it out if they haven't. I put it up with Project Runway as one of the only competition reality shows that's worth a damn.

I'm in.....Put my picks together. I'm sure you guys will out-pace me over the season, so I doubt I'll be in every week.

It's cool, when you don't make a pick on a game the expert you selected during registration makes the pick for you.

I'm also setup on beat the insiders now. Is there a way to make a community page or something? Or are we just going to be sharing links to our picks?

Oh derp... never actually clicked that link... I see we do have a group page.

I'm probably going to pick Lions every week and then let the experts pick the rest

Krahulik is right. He should have never bent to any group (I don't care what group or what cause)... That's his style, that's Penny-Arcade's style, they don't need to shape their material. If someone has a problem with it they're free to stop being fans.

I'm glad I live in Michigan where the speed limit seems to be rarely enforced

I don't think I could take living somewhere where they give tickets for 5 or even 10.

At least ESPN uses my whole monitor. Yahoo now uses about 1/3rd of it.

Yahoo uses more space on mine:

It's not much different than ESPN's layout. Not that that one is any good either but they both appear to be typical.

That's pretty hilarious. I wonder what the criteria was for "computer game".

Poe's law here folks.

Too many similar dumb posts from him for it to be parody, it's sadly the real deal.

Oh I know. But if I saw that anywhere else from anybody else.

San Andreas was universally reviled as the worst of the bunch and for many good reasons. No, the best of the series was still Vice City. GTA4 would be after that.

Are you sure? Most the people I've seen have it the other way around and say San Andreas was their favorite and Vice City the worst.

Only the console kiddy wigga gangstas were 'down' with San Andreas. And that's all that was. So yeah, if you were a 14 year old wigga I'm sure it was pretty sweet.
