Tycho: I like Fallout a lot, and I have for a long time; I also have a pretty robust history of bouncing hard off the genre I conceptualize as “Steam Survival Darlings.”  It’s pretty clear that this isn’t meant to be “the next fallout game” in anything but the most literal sense, i.e. it’s not Fallout 5, no matter how hard you might want that to be the case.  You will be incredibly unhappy trying to map that desire over Fallout 76 - so unhappy, in fact, that it might just not be for you. Gabriel the Younger loves the game, which I find…

 News Post: Drawing on the new iPad Posted: Wed, 14 Nov 18:02:00 PST (Gabe)
Gabe: I got an iPad Pro back in April of this year after learning that there was an iOS version of Clip Studio. Since this is the program I do all my work in these days, I was curious if an iPad could function as my travel device. After drawing on it for about a week I loved it. I didnít just decide to use it when I travel. I started using the iPad exclusively for all my drawing.  I drew the comic strip on it. View this post on Instagram Working on Mondayís strip and Iíve got some company. #pennyarcade A post shared by Mike Krahulik (@cwgabriel) on Jun 16, 2018 at…

Tycho: In truth, it’s Gabriel the Younger who plays more Fortnite than Elliot - but Gabriel Prime would never have deployed this kind of poetry, so it was vital that I take the fore. I’m a little startled and honored by his rendering of my beautiful son, but in truth I think it might be ultrapragmatic to start preparing my children for the coming Water Wars.  See if we can get them a head start on being hailed as Seed Lords or some shit in a world where people have twelve different words for dust storms but have never seen a plant.  I’d have to start early - as early…

 News Post: No Thank U Posted: Mon, 12 Nov 19:02:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: Gwob was talking about Adventure Mode before, and how savory it is, and how it’s mostly new to us because a substantial amount of our Diablo 3 play was back when it still had a cash store.  I have a real challenge with games of the “loot-‘em-up” variety, and it’s whenever I get to “the desert level.”  It has an almost total ability to sunder my momentum, even for a game I’m nuts about.  Whenever they make me start trudgin’ through some kinda Goddamn dunes or some shit I’m audi.  I’m not proud of it or…

 News Post: Adventure Mode! Posted: Fri, 09 Nov 18:09:00 PST (Gabe)
Gabe: Iíve dipped my toe into Diablo III many times over the years. I am not much of a PC gamer but when it hit consoles I put a decent amount of time into it. I just picked it up again on the Switch and tried playing a seasonal character in adventure mode which is something Iíd never tried before. In past versions of the game you had to beat the entire story to unlock adventure Mode, but the Switch version allows you to jump right into it. Iíve probably started the Diablo III campaign a hundred times, but never gotten all the way to the end. I like the game on the Switch but honestly…

 News Post: The Gnoll Set Posted: Fri, 09 Nov 08:01:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: I don’t know if it kept me up all night or anything, but I did spend some time, maybe aÖ day, considering some fairly heady - and footy - topics.  I feel like the next step is to ask my friends who are furs.  Indeed, I shoulda fuckin’ started there.  Call it a hunch, but my guess is that this is a question their people have already answered a million years ago. I’m heading up to Victoria on that Clipper they got, to take part in Desert Bus 2018.  Brenna has made and subsequently framed a special Magic: The Gathering themed cross stitch that is sure…
