“Like most things that rise from the dead, the Penny Arcade Adventures series is a very different creature from what it once was. But for the creators of the popular gaming webcomic and new cohorts Zeboyd Games (the two-man indie studio tapped to complete the once-doomed episodic series), it’s good to see their creation finally walking within the realm of the living.”
It’s pretty awesome to have a charity for gaming minded-folks that also helps out hospitalized kids. If you’re feeling generous this holiday season, Child’s Play is a great cause. Plus it was formed by the folks over Penny Arcade, which is killer. Seriously, go read the comics and the witty write-ups, it’s like a +13 Sword of Funny (+20 vs Gamers) aside the head.
Anyhow, I wrote up a feature on Child’s Play for What They Play which can be read over there. I urge you to check it out and consider making a donation.
“After many successful years on the West Coast, the annual Penny Arcade Expo recently made its East Coast debut in Boston, unleashing a veritable Pandora’s box of gaming nerdery into the Hynes Convention Center that spilled out into the surrounding area for several days of revelry. PAX is the only gaming focused convention of its size that’s accessible to the general public, and PAX East’s clear focus on giving players and fans a means of accessing their wildest geek fantasies over the course of a jam packed weekend assured the approximate 60,000+ attendees would have plenty to do during their stay.”
