The best part about their campaign was the fact that it was originally meant to raise 0,000 to take a single banner ad off of the site for a while. Surely they were inundated with rape and death threats, and games where you could beat up photos of the Penny Arcade creators, because those people weren't misogynists, they were legitimately upset at a Kickstarter campaign.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
Also their campaign directly violated Kickstarter's rules yet that feminazi slunt Sarkeesian was way more of a scam because

i would just like to personally apologize to all of you for all the time I've spent on this world not actively maligning this horrible, bullshit waste of money and public faith with every fiber of my being.
i have made the necessary adjustments, and am taking measures to prevent massive oversights like this in the future.

For that money, people should have the oppurtunity to hunt them on a remote island, Most Dangerous Game-style, not that Pigbald and the tuberculoric scarecrow would provide much challenge...but then again they might surprise people.

I made it less than 30 seconds including the intro.

This is also a waste of money.
|Udderdude - 2013-04-03 |
I can't wait to be a giant piece of shit and watch these gross nerds pretend to be likeable all day.

Pretty much. Hours of action packed computer drawing and awkward sexual tension.

While I agree the Penny Arcade guys are quite ugly and overrated, I'm always happy to see artists given a shot at making a living with their drawings. Maybe one of them will actually deserve it.
True, but this is like watching a reality show where Dan Brown discovers the next great American author.

Reality show everything.
Lexxy is a great name.

"Funny how you don't see the Anita Sarkeesian haters complaining about this waste of money"
I just found out about it. Give me a second shit.
|Hooker - 2013-04-03 |
I like to think that Penny-Arcade plays a big part in why I no longer keep up with video games.

Really? Anyone who wasn't a brainless PA fan forking over money universally panned their kickstarter as the most worthless, disgustingly blatant cash grab in the site's history. It was a 0k goal just to take the banner ad off the front page (not anywhere else) which was supposedly holding them back from making more D&D for toddlers comics.
Reward tiers included:
00- Invited to a pizza party at their office (travel expenses not included)
00- Intern for them...for A DAY (travel expenses not included). Someone paid 00 extra to do office work over a party.
,000- lunch with "Gabe" and "Tycho" (travel expenses not included, probably sneak out without paying the tab).
You don't understand. WHO WANTS DESSERT is one of the everyone-on-poetv-is-the-worst posters that still comes here. It doesn't matter if anything he says is based in reality.
The whole awful kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/575109064/penny-arcade-sells-o ut
Note one of the reward tiers trying to bring the whole "dickwolves" thing back.
I never understood why being Will Arnett's personal assistant for a day was a prize either.
I mean, I'd do it because I am a perv and for some reason that's really hot to me but why the fuck would anyone else want to do it? Especially for 00.
Someone explained it as a dominatrix kind of thing where cruel is more expensive than kind.

FYI, "waste of money" is at the bottom of the list of reasons people threw a shitfit over Anita Sarkeesian and her bullshit.
The biggest kickstarter waste of money award goes to Neil Gaiman's awful wife who raised million for her busker music tour then demanded all the musicians work for free, claiming that there just wasn't any money left to pay them.
You're just saying that because you're a misogynist.
Yeah, FABIO, stop being such a misogynist!
What made it even worse was her detailed budget breakdown of where the money was going (hiring people to decide HOW to spend the money).
"PLUS we have to factor in about -20k to pay our design team to actually design all this stuff, and to make it super-duper amazing and worth your money. those of you who supported mine and Neil’s last Kickstarter know what i’m talking about here. this CD is gonna be a super-deluxxxxxe work of art.
i have to pay the VISUAL artists who joined this amazing art party. i commissioned them all to paint their art, they own it. i’m only BORROWING the art for the art gallery tour — and using the “likeness” (the digital copy) for the album/book/etc. packaging – and then returning the art to the artist to keep. still, i paid them all. add another -25k there. i feel very good about giving them all that money. "
k for graphic designers to do graphite paintings for your album, not a cent for the musicians. I guess it all makes sense though when you look at her actual work.
GRAFFITI paintings! Nice, auto-corrector.

5 stars for the evil banality of penny arcade and every person who has ever thought them funny in middle school and then never grew out of that phase - going on to become the most horrible, unfunny manchildren to roam the earth.
Or Maddox or everyone else who lucked out with "have a website in the 90s".

I've run into Tycho several times, just due to random Boolean intersection sorts of things, and he is very much aware that his comic sucks, and not ashamed to take the money of idiots.
Gabe, however, is not aware that his comic sucks, and thinks it's amazing.
Reading their news posts it's no surprise that Gabe's cock of the walk routine isn't an act. Half of it is patting himself on the back for being such a great tough buy sticking it to whatever stand in for high school jocks he's bitter over that week.

Are we sure this isn't an April Fool's joke? A horrible, terrible, pathetic April Fool's joke?

Still waiting for that Ulillillia movie to get released somewhere. :(

Punky Punk is what the fusion of Mark Wahlberg and Soleil Moon Frye would call itself.

These guys are some of the most unlikable, ugly, no-talent hacks in the webcomic "business". That says a lot too. Like so many others, their success is undeserved. Somewhere the Perry Bible Fellowship guy is probably sleeping in a box, but these fuckers get 0k for their own little masturbatory reality show.
Don't forget Leisure Town rotting in obscure limbo.
If there's anything that successful webcomics have taught it's that pandering comes waaaaay before talent.
|Nikon - 2013-04-04 |
I wish they had given the money to charity instead of using it to fund another shitty reality show.
|Riskbreaker - 2013-04-04 |
I have a dream, Abe from Game Center CX comes in and gives these two fucks a wedgie so hard they become soprano singers for the rest of their lives, then Arino comes into frame, sees the two pathetic wastes of life in agony, turns around to the camera and says with a smile "that's too bad!"
|TeenerTot - 2013-04-04 |
I've never heard of them.
I count myself lucky?
|TheOtherCapnS - 2013-04-04 |
I think Penny Arcade comics are funny sometimes. But it's just a cartoon on the internet, so who gives a shit?
Apparently, a lot of you give a lot of a shit.
Are we not allowed to mock anyone anymore without people coming in to lecture how you can only do that if it directly affects you?
I don't think that word means what you think it means.
