    It is clear from his expression and steepled fingers in the last panel that Tycho is already calculating the most unspeakable omissions from Kurtz's proscription list.

    So is PVP still popular?
    I havn't been on there for a while but I couldn't see any video game related strips for a long time.

    On a lighter note, like PVP I would love to see a Penny Arcade animated series but maybe in the form of small shorts with Kid Beyond reprising his role as Tycho.

    I have to admit - I love PA but normally only get a smile or smirk or chortle. Panel 3 made me bust out laughing. And NOT in a bullshit internet sense.

    It appears fairly regularly in the webcomic thread, more so after Scott moved in to make Blams and ScottAndKrisKrisAndScotts.

    Strange. I heard Jon Benjamin's voice when reading Scott's dialogue.

    Is this the first time Kurtz has appeared in the comic? I think it might be. Or I could be making that up.

    I would not have laughed as much as this strip if I hadn't seen Scott on PATV, for some reason.

    Scott and Kris are going to Australia for a week in March. According to the strip (and Twitter) G&T are going to do guest strips for PvP that week.

    Regarding the newpost, where Tycho states that his next PC will be Windows, in order to play Windows games:

    Is this really still a problem with Macs? I don't have one myself, but I figured that either Crossloop, Parallels/VMWare, or Boot Camp (or some combination thereof) would let you play the vast majority of Windows-only games on an Intel Mac. I know Windows PCs may be the better choice for gamers trying to get the maximum in graphics performance and such, but for esoteric indie games, most Macs should be able to handle them.

    Anyone have a Mac? What's your preferred method of playing Windows only games?

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Reading the news post I agree that it's odd. Boot Camp is still easy to setup and will run the kinds of indie games he's talking about flawlessly. If his issues were with high-spec games there are definitely problems in the design of Mac hardware that makes it hard to justify as a gaming platform.

    Sometimes those games are poorly written, and wouldn't run well in a virtual environment. Or perhaps those VM environments are not great at taking advantage of the graphics cards (I know they used to be terrible at it, but perhaps newer versions are better?). Or it may just be too much of a hassle for him to mess with all of that, and he just wants simplicity of running those games without having to reboot into Windows or run it in a VM, so he just goes for a Windows PC.

    They're not very different at all. Just crazy lighting, and that wild grump-face in the second panel 2.

    I agree that this comic works very well with our familiarity with Mr. Kurtz through PATV. I think it's especially effective because in the show he plays up those deadpan gags almost constantly, but in this comic he seems all-joking-aside-stressed about what kinds of things Tycho's going have sexing in his comic while he's away.
