Tycho’s a shithead

I love the new posting system, because it allows me to go BACK IN TIME and call Tycho a shithead.

Mainly just a test.

But I do like the new post system!

Gotta love the stupid hatemail

A long time ago, in a newspost far, far away, you may recall Tycho mentioning the Penny Arcade Complaint Department, to be headed by Batjew and myself.  There were even rumors that we would take the best hatemail and post them somewhere public, and generally everyone was excited about the whole idea.  Then, for a long time, nothing happened.  Either Gabe & Tycho got used to the hatemail, or it died down, or whatever.

It’s finally happened, though:  A piece of hatemail stupid enough for public ridicule, which I have thoughtfully posted in the Forum.  Please feel free to check out that thread for updates on this ongoing event, as well as a whole lot of Safety Monkey worship (which I highly condone, by the way).  Enjoy!

The Sega ads are now working correctly. Please feel free to interact with them in a clicking oriented fashion.  If you’re hungry for more information about this whole free SegaNet deal give this page a look. It breaks it all down and gives you links to all the important stuff. As Tycho mentioned before we plan on playing PSO all day on the 16th and 17th. As it gets closer we will put up some more information about how to hook up with us.

A Brief Addendum.

Astute readers are quite correct - Battlezone (and its sequel, Battlezone 2) do many of the things we discussed today - and then they disappeared completely.  Not just the games, now.  Like the bold strokes of Allegiance, their advances - and indeed, the germ of some new genre - vanished entirely.  None of the games I’ve mentioned sold well, so while it is unfortunate, it’s also easy to understand why these concepts never took root.  But a vigorous design - gleefully deep, immediately accessible, and marshalling the true vigor of the C&C license - I’m naive enough to hope things would be different.
