Illuminating Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 {Joystiq}

Apr 2nd 2012 2:48PM @Robert Boyd

Actually, DevilSei brings up something I was curious about too - the fate of the player-character and his gardening-based arsenal. I know he didn't have much real personality, but I'd gotten kind of attached to him, in the self-insert, team-up-with-the-real-heroes, Ghostbusters-new-recruit sort of way.

I can definitely understand the difficulties in trying to import a save from a different studio, but I wouldn't mind a new character-creation screen.

Unless I'm misreading the screens and one of the characters is the self-insert somehow?

I dunno, by "standalone adventure" I assume they didn't mean it's taking things in a totally different direction (since they said further down that it's still based firmly in Tycho's original story), but rather that everything that comes back will be re-introduced to the players in some way. Which, honestly, I would appreciate as someone who did play and enjoy the first two games - years ago.

I do miss the style, largely because it was a pretty good emulation of Gabe's art. But I also like the semi-cartoony 16-bit style Zeboyd has got going here. I think it will be different, but good.

See, the thing about that is, they don't have the customers' money any more. It's gone now.

Humble Android Bundle 2 adds bonus Snuggle Truck {Joystiq}

I'm hearing more and more lately that it's not a matter of there being a market, but that it's much more expensive to develop for Android, because of the fragmentation of the market and the devices. The iPhone/iPad hardware is tightly controlled, with one steadily advancing line each for phone and tablet, but there's a much wider array of CPUs, GPUs, manufacturer-specific flavors of Android, etc to support.

Politicians propose cigarette warning labels for games {Joystiq}

Mar 21st 2012 5:51PM Maybe after this bill is declared unconstitutional and the government is ordered to pay reparations to the ESA for defending itself, they'll turn around and put that money toward ESRB ad campaigns. That would be nice.

NintendoWare Weekly: Game Gear, Samurai Shodown IV {Joystiq}

Mar 15th 2012 11:26AM Okay, if you strategically place treasure to protect some other goal, I may actually be interested in Pirates Assault. Sadly, I don't expect that's what you meant.

Game Gear emulation outclasses the other 3DS Virtual Console games {Joystiq}

Mar 14th 2012 5:45PM Of course! The Game Gear! The one system that could make the 3DS's battery seem positively outstanding in comparison.

I kid, I kid. Really though, it sounds cool. Would be nice to have those features in the other emulated consoles (though the main ones I'm interested in are the GBA games... but since I wanted the Zelda Limited Edition, I didn't get any ambassador games, so... oh well, thanks for that Nintendo).

Funny, my favorite of t he group is the pink-haired girl, who looks to actually be wearing them (or maybe just tights?). She looks the most like she's wearing something an actual person would ever wear outside of cosplay.
