Images of Penny Arcade

Gabe and Tycho with the console market, what? Yup, it's getting done, the two emblematic characters from one of the web's finest comic will have their own videogame called Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness (I'm having a headache just writing it). Promising yes, but the interface at the bottom takes way too much space I think. Let's see it in action before judging.

Is this for XBLA or will it be a full retail game?

I'm pretty sure it's going to be a downloadable game, not full priced.

It's an XBLA game not full priced. I'm willing to give it a shot, art direction looks nice.

"So trash is pretty cool?"
I love penny arcade, so i'm totally getting this. As long as the jokes are at level with the comic i'll be happy as can be.

I really like how it's kept the style of the comic so well

Looks like a nice game but I was never into penny arcade I'll give it a miss

Looks really nice. Love the setting.

I think this will be pretty good. Writing & art will no doubt impress.

Will definitely try it out.

"I hope this game bombs. Would be sweet irony for Penny Arcade."

I think this comment is pretty ignorant considering all the good they have done for children’s hospitals through the yearly Childs Play campaign. If anything they deserve this game to be hugely successful.

    aphex187 Played a bit of BF1 yesterday, still doesn't hold my attention like it used to but by jingo it looks beautiful!! (48 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I know hdr makes a difference. However, is it worth 1000+ euro's? (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea that's sorta like turning up the "digital vibrance" setting in the Nvidia control panel. Without HDR we're just seeing more saturated colors. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (10 Hours ago)
