Penny Arcade 3 Review 0

After a nearly four year wait, Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 has been released and the adventures of our intrepid (hmm…more like reluctant) detectives Gabe and Tycho finally continue. The question is – can Zeboyd Games successfully pick up where Hothead Games left off – instead developing DeathSpank – and continue the series?In short…sort of. After playing and thoroughly enjoying the first two games, I was quite excited to install and start up the third. Penny Arcade 3...

Classic JRPG stylings with a modern touch 0

Developed by Zeboyd Games, makers of fine retro-RPGs like Cthulu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII, the third act in the four part Penny Arcade series is a successful tribute to SNES-era Japanese RPGs like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger while simultaneously improving on the formula and modernizing many of the obnoxious tropes for which the genre is known. Enemies in New Arcadia can be seen and avoided in dungeons, though most of them seem to block crucial pathways or treasure chests, an...

Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode 3 Review 0

FINALLY the saga continues for Tycho and Gabe. It might have taken a couple of extra years, and the developer and style might have changed, but in the end we finally have the third installation into the series. You will once again take part in trying to get to the bottom of what gods are left in the world, and what is corrupting the land. With a new developer you're going to notice that there's been some changes, changes that I think might have actually made for a better game.Graphically this ga...

Humorous and offbeat, PA3 is worth your $5 0

When Hothead Games, developers of Penny Arcade Adventures: On The Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness Episodes 1 and 2 decided to focus their efforts elsewhere, that seemed to spell the end of the offbeat and humorous RPG series. Fortunately, the two man crew at Zeboyd Games stepped up to take over the development reins of the third Penny Arcade game. While Penny Arcade 3 looks and plays very differently from the first two games, it is still maintains the series' particular brand of oddness and exc...

Resplendent Retro Gaming 0

I picked up PA: OTRSPOD 3 during the Steam Summer Sale, not expecting much more than a few hours of entertaining diversion.And then I started playing.The gameplay is very much old skool Final Fantasy style. Deliberately. The Zeboyd Games influence is unmistakable - in that it's that old skool rpg, in a 2012 context. But this is incidental. It is only a small part of why I rate this game.The humour is great - full disclosure: am a long-term PA fanboy; followed them long before I ever discovered G...

A Fun, Silly, Retro RPG Extravaganza! 0

Penny Arcade has always been good for a laugh, its silly, its witty, its goofy, and it doesn't take it self seriously. Why not start making video games? Fast forward several years and change in developers and come at Precipice of Darkness from a completely different angle and PoD 3 is born.PoD 3 is most defiantly a retro video game pulling at your fond memories of games like Final Fantasy 1 through 6 in a pretty huge way, while at the same time being wholly its own beast.The super pixelated grap...

It's a good thing a game this wordy has excellent writing 0

Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 is a game that doesn’t skimp on the writing. Dialogue is abundant, the monsters you’ll be fighting have their own bits of flavor text, you’ll never be left wanting for dialogue, weapons have individual descriptions, sometimes after fights characters will chat about what they just fought, and there’s quite a bit of dialogue. I suppose it’s a good thing that the writing, presumably all done by Penny Arcade’s head scribe Jerry Holkins, is act...
