I really want that Drew Nintendo shirt.

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Thursday, 27 July 2006 04:30 (fifteen years ago) link

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:

Ste, speaking of TV-related videogame larfs, anybody see Entourage two weeks ago? It opens with a scene from the Godfather game that's involved in a hilarious reveal.

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.

got yourself a fish biscuit! (nickalicious), Wednesday, 11 October 2006 14:19 (fourteen years ago) link

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?

The ridiculous plasticity of the Demon's Souls character creation system is always good for some laughs, but I came across this one randomly and nearly pissed myself.

what the heck is an interstice?
also surprised to discover this game still exists AND also just got a US release last year

Nhex, Wednesday, 14 April 2021 03:11 (three months ago) link

As the comments point out, an interstice is defined as "an intervening space, especially a very small one," which is unfortunate, given the font choice.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 14 April 2021 11:58 (three months ago) link

lol, Microsoft Flight Simulator video is slowly, quietly hilarious. Needs Laurie Anderson "From the Air" dubbed over it.


lol, Microsoft Flight Simulator

OK, this is like an epic troll, but I'm not sure who it's trolling, which is irrelevant, because it's so stupid it's hilarious, at least to me, this morning:

My 5 yo niece downloaded this game and I looked over and started watching. She went through 9 levels and at the end had to deliver a baby via c-section. Keep in mind neither of us had any idea what the game was about at first or what it was called until the very end

you want confusing: dunkey's new video is a (pretty good) review of Jacques Tati's movie Playtime

Yeah I thought it was pretty solid. He does do movies from time to time.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 11 June 2021 18:14 (one month ago) link

i was a very late dunkey adopter mainly cuz every other massively popular gamer youtuber is the worst ever. his dream drama videos hooked me and now i'm a convert. even my girlfriend who cares not for video games loves him and now i have to wait to watch his new videos so we can watch them together :)

diamonddave85​​ (diamonddave85), Friday, 11 June 2021 18:22 (one month ago) link

I think he eased off the voice thing that initially struck me as, uh, minstrelsy-adjacent, maybe it was never actually that to begin with. PlayTime is an all-time great video game of course

Joni Mitchell's Blue came out 50 years ago today, and id Software's Quake came out 25 years ago today. In honor of these two influential classics, I modded Quake to replace Trent Reznor's soundtrack with the entirety of Blue. Enjoy.

i swear to god Yogurt Commercial 3 is the dark souls of yogurt games, here’s me trying to articulate how to solve one puzzle

emil.y, Sunday, 4 July 2021 15:26 (one month ago) link

hahaha, i haven't actually played it. But it's a bennett foddy recommendation :)

go tell him he's wrong!

I’ve never convinced anyone to play a videogame, but I’m going to try again anyway:

Yogurt Commercial 3:
- it’s groundhog day but you’re just trying to make an ok yogurt commercial
- 6 year passion project by an astrophysicist who has been making yogurt games since 1998
- $8.50

Z_TBD (Karl Malone), Sunday, 4 July 2021 16:08 (one month ago) link

What if I haven't played Yogurt Commercial 1 or 2? Will I be lost, or is there a video online that sums up the backstory?

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 4 July 2021 16:29 (one month ago) link

i think yogurt 3 is the reboot, like of god of war

Z_TBD (Karl Malone), Sunday, 4 July 2021 16:32 (one month ago) link

oddly with all the eating and vomiting and buffing and hell places, it sounds more like a roguelike than a puzzle game!

Bobo Honk, real name, no gimmicks (Doctor Casino), Monday, 5 July 2021 16:22 (four weeks ago) link

you can make the play-by-play guy call your player "dog dick" in mlb the show. and you can also give them an insanely stupid home run trot. it rocks.
