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.

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.

Hatris was invented by Alexey Pazhitnov!

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Wednesday, 11 October 2006 23:31 (fifteen 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 (fifteen 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?

I'm not surprised about any of that at all but it really has nothing to do with the videos. They're pretty much 100% safe from any sort of stance; just fun goofy editing projects.

Not conventionally funny, but I did think it silly that the hook of this brief interview is basically "I play games to relax in my downtime."

Zedd, the Grammy-winning DJ, was burned out. PC gaming was the fix.

— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) August 14, 2022

When my career started, I kind of paused gaming, just because everything got crazy busy. And things got a little off balance. And at some point, I kind of brought the balance back into my life. I got a PC, and I started gaming, and it kind of became my routine after work.

I try to keep a balanced life. And to me a balanced life is not to work 24/7, but to have your time when you’re in the studio or on the road. And then when you have time off, for me, that’s gaming.

The story goes that, during production on Metal Gear Solid 3, Kojima had become infatuated with the works of novelist Stephen Hunter, whose books The Master Sniper and Point of Impact, were about snipers embedded in the mountains, gradually trying to pick one another off. Kojima’s idea was that Snake’s boss fight with The End would be as close to a real-life sniper fight as humanly possible, and would be played out over two real-time weeks. The player would need to use their surroundings to remain hidden and silent, look for clues in a huge area to identify where The End was hiding and, once he was located, set up the perfect shot. Again, this would play out over two actual weeks.

The crazy thing is that this boss fight actually made it to a prototype stage. It was, at one point, a real part of a playable build. However, when it came time to test the fight, no one who played through it was able to find a trace of the old man. Numerous players spent hours looking for The End and turned up nothing, effectively impeding their progress through the game. The team found the fight so infuriatingly dull that they began booing Kojima, convincing him to give up on the idea entirely.

Antifa Lockhart (Leee), Tuesday, 13 September 2022 17:56 (one week ago) link

Kojima had originally wanted to create an enemy AI for Metal Gear Solid 2 that would get an instant read on the player. I would sus out your actions during the first few minutes of gameplay and use that information to create a player profile, including age, gender, and personal interests. The information would then be used for and against the player throughout their entire playthrough. The PS2, of course, simply did not possess the power required to realise such a grand idea. All that remains of this plan is a questionnaire that asked the player for their info. That information later appears on Raiden’s dog tags toward the end of the game, the same ones he throws away, symbolically throwing the player’s identity away as he asserts his own.
Kojima got really into sharks during production on Metal Gear Solid 2 and pitched several ideas about Snake having to evade or fend off the creatures. One sequence would have involved Snake swimming through a flooded section of the Big Shell complex and spilling his blood to distract the sharks. Another involved a boss fight involving a great white. There are no sharks in the final game.

So many missed opportunities.

I love the phrasing that the player would need to use their surroundings - rolling behind the sofa on your way to the toilet while the PlayStation sends a questing laser beam around the room.
