    Goodbye Penny Arcade. I'll be following the LRR crew and leaving this shitty site behind!

    Don't know that I'll leave PA over this but losing PAR and Checkpoint really sucks. A bad decision by the PA crew.

    @Pugiron: Please believe me when I say you won't be missed.

    I'll miss PATV and PAR, but I still love Tycho's news updates. Funny, insightful, and relevant- it's the trifecta of blogging! And the comic is still plenty good, too.

    I'm not a nice guy, I just play one in real life.

    I like all these people that came out of the woodwork and decide to break free of the shackles of Penny Arcade, (that they applied themselves by being too lazy or stupid to go to Youtube or another site hosting them).
    These people must hate the government for making our currency solely based on heavy little coins (unaware that cash exist), or curse themselves for not being able to answer the door for pizza deliveries.

    My wife - "Save the tiger."
    Me - "Fuck that. I'm voting the dragon"
    Her - "They can eat a person whole."
    Me - "IT'S A DRAGON!!!"

    Wind Fish in name only, for it is neither.

    Get with the news. They aren't "breaking free", PA got rid of them. You've got it backwards.

    Are you people retarded? You do know you can go to more than one website on the internet right?

    Though I guess with checkpoint gone I'll only need to check penny arcade often enough to remember that the comic still isn't funny.

    I'm really going to miss writing all the lower thirds (the jokes at the bottom of the screen) for this. Read carefully for a teenage crush confession!

    So Ace Rimmer or regular Rimmer? 'cause I can understand Ace. Regular Rimmer, not so much.

    I love homestuck but I totally dated the spaceship first and I had no regrets.

    (... and then I dated the Homestuck characters.)

    We will miss Kathleen being the only person on PATV who actually shows up in the forums. Clearly, you are a glutton for punishment.

    I don't think I've ever actually looked at twitch tv. I guess I'll have to now to see what kind of shenanigans you folks get up to there. Hopefully some of them will be checkpoint esque. Not sure where to find entertaining gaming news type stuff now.

    Edit: just realized I missed last week's episode due to Christmas. Yay I'm so glad Checkpoint will continue to exist sort of!

    While I'll miss Extra Credits on here more, still a shame to see you go.

    I guess I'll have to dredge up more than one domain on my average internet session now.

    Steam: Polaritie
    3DS: 0473-8507-2652
    Switch: SW-5185-4991-5118

    Guess I won't ever have to worry about supporting another PA kickstarter when all they do is cut content/support. Bright side to everything! :)

    I read EVERY SINGLE COMMENT on Strip Search when it went up too. I love to hate myself.

    Scroll down to the bottom. Or if you're lazy, the relevant information is here:
    Monday 12 PM Pacific/3 PM Eastern/8 PM UK
    CheckPoint lives on, filmed before a live internet audience! Kathleen, Graham, and Paul keep you up to date on the latest and stupidest gaming industry news, while sharing their views on the most egregious examples of idiocy. The term “lambast” is applicable.

    I'm confused....Are the fans abandoning PA because PATV is gone, or is PA being abandoned by the creators like the Chapman Brothers abandoned Homestar Runner? I stopped reading Tycho's news posts because they're too poetic for my brain to translate into useful information. It's like reading a LOTR chapter where Galadriel prattles on, eccentially saying the same thing over & over, but takes her sweet time getting to the point.

    I came here for the comics, but I have noticed that PATV tends to garner far more comments than the focal point of the site. I can still watch all of them on Youtube anyway.

    @likalaruku: Tycho never made the details clear, but it seems they (Tycho and Gabe) decided they wanted to keep things simple. They experimented with offering multiple services (i.e. PATV, PAR), but in the end, all they really want to do is make comics. That was the driving reason behind the ad-free kickstarter, and I believe it's the driving reason behind re-simplifying the site.

    The people who are commenting about "being free from PA now that PATV is gone" are just... words I can't use for fear of incurring an infraction- and I refuse to say "silly geese". But at the very least they're clearly too ignorant to know that there was no reason to come to PA for their favorite show(s) in the first place, and too lazy to look for alternatives.

    I'm not a nice guy, I just play one in real life.
