Penny Arcade's is based on Lookouts, and it's EXACTLY up /tg/'s alley.

The Lookouts universe is so popular they decided they could do this for the fans and they'd enjoy it.


I'm highly optimistic.

>> No.15127479

Eh, hate PA. Guys haven't been funny in years. Just man sized douches getting their pride boner.

>> No.15127500

I find them pretty funny still, but to each his own.

>> No.15127516

Look, no offense. But that web comic is the very opposite of funny. Hell, I think the last time they had funny was the Twisp and Catsby strips.
Granted, they've had some decent non comedic things once in a while, I actually like Automata a lot. But what memorable comics have they made since?

>> No.15127529


Not that guy, but here's an idea, people MIGHT find different things fun.
Shocking, I know.

>> No.15127533


It's not 'funny', but it's not meant to be. Part of me wishes that they'd cut PA down to one strip a week and do a regular Lookouts strip.

>> No.15127540

Humor isn't really an issue here. Like you said Automata is cool and some of their other settings are too. Lookouts is superb one and will probably be an awesome game.No sense hating on it because you don't like other stuff or the guys themselves.

Automata/Lookouts, same period.

and dude >>15127529

Look at it. Seriously. No nostalgia goggles or anything. Seriously look at the jokes. You might say they're worth cracking a smile, maybe.
Eh, I mostly am annoyed that they started out as a gamer comic, and now they can't really go on with that. They're goddamn old, more or less. There was actually a strip about that.
What I hate most though? The video series. I watched 2 episodes today. I felt sick to my stomach by the end.

>> No.15127586

I don't even understand what's supposed to be entertaining about Lookouts.

The entire thing is one painfully slow 4e solo fight.

>> No.15127590

Yes. Yes I must. It is imperative you all understand there can be only one correct opinion, just as there is only one correct reality. We're also not discussing quantum mechanics and even then, it'd be observed already.

>> No.15127596

>> No.15127615


I don't even read PA, never have apart from some random ones I've been linked by friends, so there's no nostalgia in it there anywhere for me.
What I'm saying is that you're going all "stop liking what I don't like!".
People have different tastes, and yours isn't necessarily any better than his, or the other way around.

>> No.15127626

You do not read the comic. But you defend a hypothetical humour that may or may not be found withing.
I do read it. I have for a very long time. I've seen every strip. It was funny, it is so no longer. Now it's more of an anecdotal journal for them.

>> No.15127645

It's all about the fluff, really.

>> No.15127648


Again, you're missing the goddamn point. It is no longer funny in YOUR opinion. Someone else might have a different opinion. Having an opinion that differs from yours does not make it wrong.

>> No.15127656

Humour can be objectively measured.
PA has a very low humium particle count.
Case closed, they are no longer funny.

>> No.15127671


Yeah, no.

>> No.15127687


They've always been worth cracking a smile, maybe. Occasionally they do something worth an actual laugh. I honestly don't see any decline of humor here, they're about as hit-or-miss as always.

Lookouts was great, though, I don't see why you wouldn't like it based off their spotty humor strips.

>> No.15127704

Yeah, yes.


See, here's the thing, I was joking about measuring humour objectively, but they do indeed make many more unfunny comics than funny comics. The density of funny comics has declined in recent years. They are now less funny. Overall they were funny, but that has changed to a status other than funny, Therefore unfunny.

>> No.15127719


no he's right, humor can be objectivly measured.

In a contolled experiment.

Which you havent done.

Now stop trying to pass opinion as fact faghole. Or to quote something you may understand. CITATION NEEDED

>> No.15127743


On the miniscule chance that you aren't just trolling..
No, you can't. You can for your own use, but, and here is the kicker, again, people have different opinions of what is funny. I'm not talking about wheter or not PA is funny, I frankly don't care, it is besides the point. What I'm trying to get across to you is that people have different opinions. It is not a hard concept to grasp.

>> No.15127756

Oh course I'm just trolling. Really now.
However, that's beside the point. I say my estimation of what humour is can be said to equal or exceed your own. Dispute this.

>> No.15127841


This I will gladly get behind.


I'm sorry, what? Your estimation of what humor is is... higher than mine? Bigger? Also, there is no need to dispute undocumented statements, they do that by themselves.
I'll concede that you can objectively measure humor, as >>15127719 mentioned, but I'm willing to bet pretty much everything I own that you have not tested it properly, and as such, your opinion is just that, an opinion.
If you find PA boring, that's fine, I'm not disputing that. The few strips I've read have definitely varied in quality, but some people may still find them funny, regardless of what the two of us think about them.

>> No.15128073

I was just providing an "old PA" (first strip actually) example since somebody was going around claiming they were no longer funny.

Looking at the first few strips makes me think it's not a matter of them becoming less funny, but of whoever liked their strips at first "growing up".

Just my 5 cents: Penny arcade at least gets a chuckle out of me occasionally, and I read every strip. I've laughed maybe... once at CAD, and I felt dirty for doing so.

There's a reason why whenever a new CAD comic comes out /v/ and /co/ start cutting out words or fitting the miscarriage in the comic somehow yet Penny Arcade is mostly left alone. (Hint, it's not because they're jealous of CAD).

As for the board game. Utter, utter indifference is what I wish I could say, but it's very probably that Buckley truly is making this game simply because PA are making one themselves, and that's just sad, so I'm leaning more towards pity now.

>> No.15128597

that or they don't like PA.

>> No.15128610


Possibly and they are entitled to that opinion since humour is subjective as long as they don't try to say CAD is humorous... because it isn't.

>> No.15128628

The rulebook.

>> No.15128647

It's funny in a special "so bad its good" kinda way, and the rage it enduces is funny. Plus there isn't any 34 for it so it has that in its favor. Unlike PA.

>> No.15128693

no, CAD isnt so bad its good. cad is just baaaad, very bad.
What makes it sad is that some people actually support this, I've seen deviant arts from 10 year olds that are better than this.

>> No.15128699


Buckley is also the worst person in the entire internet.

Seriously what a scumbag.

>> No.15128710

I used to be a fan of CAD, but then the comics about gaming became fewer and farther between, and he started going with all these personal storylines of the characters that I didn't give two-shits about. I wanted to read a webcomic about gaming, not a melodramatic soap opera in print format.

Plus there's that whole "He showed his penis to a child" thing.

>> No.15128828

Tim buckley's shit started going downhill years ago. And if that preview pic by OP is real, then its a game about his 'players' strips, which are hardly worth mentioning about anything

PA however has only been rising up in the rank of worthwhile webcomics. And the idea behind the lookouts boardgame is pretty thrilling to me. a game of grim survival around fantasy boyscouts. sign me up

>> No.15128830


Nah, Buckley is still worse if only because he has such broad fucking reach. And the way he has a cult of pre-teens who alternate between receiving pictures of his penis and defending him with their lives online.

I will forever love Penny Arcade for their "Deluxe Membership" newspost right after Buckley announced his paid membership though.

That shit was the fucking greatest ever.
