Penny Arcade Versus Video Game Critic

A perfect storm of webcomic, news story and real life on Penny Arcade today.

A video game critic recently offered to give 10,000 to charity if a game company made a game based on his proposal (as best as we can decipher, his proposal involved a player killing the owner of a video game company). Gabe of PA emailed the critic and mentioned how much money PA had already raised for charity and apparently the critic emailed and phoned Gabe a couple of times in response.

It’s like Penny Arcade is turning into the Daily Show or something – today’s edition is about the phone call.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.


  1. Awwww man. Why don’t nutcases ever phone me about my comic. Well I did get a call from Joey Manley once, but he just wanted to know if I actually smoked a pipe.

    I need to become a gamer comic too. They get all the crazies.

  2. The potential to have your audience continually harass someone you disagree with IS a seductive lure, to be sure…

  3. Whatchu talkin’ about? Aren’t you the one who gets readers sending naked pictures of themselves in your mail box?
