Penny Arcade is increasingly less actual game-related these days, they'll just reference a piece of news, assume everyone has the same reaction to it, and go off in a non-game-related direction for the LOLz.

Though you can't beat them when they're on:

One time in the original San Francisco Rush I jumped my VW bus off of something into an endless grey void LOL.

Also there was this one hill where, if you hit it at the right angle, you jumped directly up into the air at a 90 degree angle. Why was that so hilarious? Oh right, DRUGS.

Oh yah, the hacky sack level in California Games. Hatris is funny because I can't make any sense of it as a faux-tetris, wtf it's just a lotta hats.

Abbott (Abbott), Wednesday, 11 October 2006 21:53 (fourteen years ago) link

Hatris was invented by Alexey Pazhitnov!

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Wednesday, 11 October 2006 23:31 (fourteen years ago) link

What the hell was he thinking? "I know how I can transcend my masterwork---haberdashery!" Hatris was put out by some no-name distributor, I think it was stillborn at the press.

Roger Dean designed the Tetris logo!

Abbott (Abbott), Thursday, 12 October 2006 20:34 (fourteen years ago) link

From the instruction manual:

If the hats should pile up to the top of the play field, you're out! But don't panic! As you stack hats, you'll get help from your Russian friends; Alexey and Vladimir. You can use them to move stacks and discard unwanted hats, or save them for cash bonuses in avoided overtime.

Maybe if your Russian friends were the chix from tATu it would've gone over better?

...and he's actually put up twitch streams and youtube videos following that schedule. wonder how long he'll keep it going

Yeah, he's playing amongst us on Twitch atm

this is a good and natural direction for dunkey

Karl Malone, Monday, 7 December 2020 06:16 (one month ago) link

It did briefly have me contemplating what if that is his real voice.

Andrew Farrell, Monday, 7 December 2020 07:57 (one month ago) link

he's still doing that voice on stream with himself on camera. too lazy to watch and see if he cracks

Nhex, Monday, 7 December 2020 16:48 (one month ago) link

His 3 1/2 hour (!) "reaction" stream is like the funniest prolonged deadpan schtick I've seen in some time:

Like, when he's playing "guess which one's the magician" or whatever? Genius. I mean, come on:

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 7 December 2020 17:07 (one month ago) link

it is hilarious and awful that the streamer watching someone else's content has become completely normalized already. so lazy. i suppose it's slightly better than those reaction videos where you couldn't see what they were watching...

Nhex, Monday, 7 December 2020 17:35 (one month ago) link

this is great if he quits next week

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 8 December 2020 00:05 (one month ago) link

it would be, but i do wonder what the 600th straight day of this kind of dunkey would be like. it could be amazing, it could be a personal disaster

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 00:14 (one month ago) link

It might make him rich but I would prefer a twenty minute cyberpunk piece

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 8 December 2020 01:20 (one month ago) link

I've just been watching random bits of the Dunkey streams, but I saw yesterday during the "Drama Monday! (react)" stream that there is a clip of him reacting to a guy reacting to his video announcing this semi-satirical switch in streaming strategy. "There is such big drama with this guy ..." Or another bit where some hack hints that after talking about bunch of shitty games he's going to talk about Uncharted 4, and Dunkey gets excited, but then the guy starts talking about some other shitty game instead, and Dunkey is incredulous. "what the fuck!? this is gonna start a *big-ass* drama." This is like the Dunkey equivalent of Autechre releasing an 8-hour album.

I assume at some point he'll revert back to his usual videos. I imagine this prolonged bit works kind of like a pledge drive?

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 15:22 (one month ago) link

It’s obviously a put on but gotta be tempting to play through...

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 8 December 2020 15:25 (one month ago) link

Sounds like a having-it-both-ways deal honestly - if his numbers actually do go up by pumping out garbage daily, why shouldn't he do it? Quick glance on Twitch shows his old videos at 30-60k, this past week's views at 100-200K.

Nhex, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 15:32 (one month ago) link

Yep, I read a sad polygon thing on that yesterday. At least for now, he’s getting significantly more views

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 16:02 (one month ago) link

On YouTube, I mean

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 16:02 (one month ago) link

Because of the pandemic I'm watching a lot more YouTube this year. Still can't get on the Twitch lifestyle of actually hopping on at a certain time and watching someone goof for hours. Like, I could do that with actual RL friends over Zoom, maybe, but I don't know if I could make that sort of connection with a streamer. Greatly prefer the (admittedly rife with its own problems) YouTube ingestion

Nhex, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 16:08 (one month ago) link

the only dunkey piece that features a quote from his wife:

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 16:12 (one month ago) link

I've been trying to cut myself off from Twitch after getting a bit too sucked in over the last few months. It's kind of scary how compulsive it can get, especially when I don't feel like I have the energy for anything else. There's a monotony and narcotic quality about it that makes it a little too easy to consume.

jmm, Tuesday, 8 December 2020 17:46 (one month ago) link

There's now a video of that streamer reacting to Dunkey reacting to that streamer reacting to Dunkey.

holy shit

DJP, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 14:31 (two weeks ago) link

There is nothing sadder than the distillation of everything to "content." Like, there are names for literally everything they are calling "content," but the actual, er, content doesn't matter at all, it just has to take up space/time. "You know, during the pandemic I've been watching a lot of content, reading some content, but what I really want to do is write the Great American Content. A lot of people don't know this, but I actually have a degree in content from the Iowa content program."

Anyone else see the Times article from a week or so back about iirc Chinese real estate companies selling shares in reality TV etc. housing compounds, enticing investors with a piece of their revenue streams?

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 14:33 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah framing it as "content" like that always gave me a similar impression- like it's just indistinguishable stimulation-gruel poured unceremoniously into the trough that is youtube or twitch or whatever. This content vs that content? What does it matter? It's content; consume it. It's about quantity and there always needs to be a fresh supply. Nothing else really matters. The purpose of it is the same and about as scrutinized as cartoons to keep a toddler occupied or HGTV in a dentist's waiting room.

Evan, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 14:48 (two weeks ago) link

the "content" thing has been around for a long time now. for me, it's an extremely useful indicator of sorts - "content" people are fucking weird and definitely stay far away from them

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 16:51 (two weeks ago) link

That video is like willingly signing up for an ouroboros human centipede of content creation/consumption for $13/hr.

i knew someone who got too wrapped up in his job and would say "product" over and over again and it drove me crazy. this "content" stuff reminds me of the same thing

Nhex, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 19:00 (two weeks ago) link

also people who aren't game developers using "assets" when they're talking about art / environments

ciderpress, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 19:05 (two weeks ago) link

images as "assets" come up frequently outside of game development, too.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 19:09 (two weeks ago) link

assess ass asset assimilation

sound familiar? this is corporate speak for "evaluate photos of butts for the big presentation". Thank me later- oh and congrats on that promotion ;)
