Tycho: There are a couple opportunities to PAX it up with our partner ReedPOP.  Here are two jobs in Norwalk, Connecticut, which you should absolutely check out: PAX Content Manager PAX Content Coordinator What is the difference between a Content Manager and a Content Coordinator?  Good question; it’s all in the links.  This next job is not in Norwalk, CT.  In fact it is very far away from there, because it is for PAX Aus (which is fast approaching and you should buy tickets!): PAX Aus Sales Manager (Sydney) Let’s make some shows.

News Post: Success And Its Opposite

http://www.penny-arcade.com/news/post/2016/09/28/success-and-its-opposite

Tycho: Gabe is playing an Xbox game at home, alone, and without compulsion - specifically, Forza Horizon 3.  I don’t know what caused this to happen, but it’s happening and we have to deal with that.  Specifically, I have to deal with that. I grabbed a copy after being coated in his effusions, and with a jaunty spirit, named my international racing mogul Sloth.  In my mind I can see his business card, and underneath where it says Sloth is a curl of italicized cursive that says “It’s Ironic.” I want to know way, way more before I talk about it, but the…

News Post: Call For PAX South Enforcers!

http://www.penny-arcade.com/news/post/2016/09/26/call-for-pax-south-enforcers1

Tycho: PAX Aus fast approaches, but there is another. As one of the ancient pillars of PAX, the Enforcers are one of the mystic elements that separate it from other shows - and you can literally embody this difference.  Check out the Enforcer page for South and, thus inspired, take a moment to fill out the application.  Here’s some Qs, with the As placed in close proximity: Q: Do Enforcers get a free pass? A: Yes! Also a neat staff shirt. Q: Do Enforcers get paid? A: Yes! Q: How many days/hours would I have to work? A: Enforcers must commit to working a minimum of one one 5-6…

News Post: I had fun with my Xbox!

http://www.penny-arcade.com/news/post/2016/09/26/i-had-fun-with-my-xbox

Gabe: I like to give Tycho a hard time about PC games but I actually spent some time this weekend playing on mine. I do not have a dedicated place to play PC games and I think that’s part of the problem. I spent some time this weekend working on resolving this problem. For my birthday on Sunday I got a Razer Turret. It’s a little wireless keyboard that is built into a lap desk. It also comes with a mouse to use along with it and both of them fit into a slick charging station when not in use. I hooked my laptop up to the TV and sat back with the keyboard and mouse on the couch. I played…

News Post: The Problem Palace

http://www.penny-arcade.com/news/post/2016/09/26/the-problem-palace

Tycho: I never waver on whether a computer is the best place to play games; that’s a given for me.  Consoles will always be like a weird friend of Gabriel’s I am forced to endure.  Where I do occasionally wander, where my position does occasionally vibrate ever so slightly, is how much I like engaging in Satanic rituals as a prefix to my leisure activities. It’s never going to be zero.  I’m always going to exhort Satan and his Demonic Lieutenants to inhabit the Ritual Box.  And Gabriel wants to give me shit or whatever because he just pushes a button and…

News Post: Part Of This Complete Breakfast

http://www.penny-arcade.com/news/post/2016/09/23/part-of-this-complete-breakfast

Tycho: I’m working through Destiny’s Rise of Iron campaign, as one does, shoveling savory collectibles directly into my craw. I saw Gabe in orbit last night and thought it might be nice to wrap things up with another human; what wasn’t immediately clear at the time was that he was upstairs watching Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and not actually there.  Our ships wobbled in intimate proximity for a long while; no words were said.  I feel like there’s a metaphor here.  Or maybe a literal? I’m in that dangerous, restless period between games, what we…
