Penny Arcade Strikes Back 25 Nov, 2003, 11:29 / 4 comments

Gabe of Penny Arcade fame is mad as hell, and it's all because of those dirty, dirty people over at LucasArts. (Okay, so maybe they aren't really all that dirty.) In his news rant at the bottom of Penny-Arcade.com, the online gaming comic artist lashes out at LucasArts for choosing to make recycled Star Wars titles as opposed to creating games based in the Expanded Universe. Here's a quote. It's rant-tastic!
"You want to know the reason I never talked about Rebel Strike? Because I only played the first couple of levels before I was sick of it. I love Star Wars but Jesus Christopher Christ, there are other stories to tell. I have shot down all the tie fighters I want to shoot down. I don?t want to shoot down another one. I don?t care if it?s a tie interceptor, I?m done. Why not take this opportunity to introduce the casual Star Wars fans as you call them to the wonders of the [Expanded Universe]?"

    That's all they ever do at PA is bitch.. and poor Gabe can't even do it well, with his absurd quantities of profanity. Surprisingly, though, that particular rant wasn't laced with very many "fucks." I must applaud his improvement.

    At least they're saying sensible things most of the time as opposed to other sites that are just clueless.

    It's kind of like a whole website of Lewis Blacks ;)
