Greetings, beautiful party people of the world wide webbernets. Penny Arcade Expo has come and gone for yet another year few months until PAX Australia, and just like every other year this PAX was filled with good times, bad times, interesting panels, amazing games, and highlighted the very best of what the video game community can accomplish when we come together in the names of acceptance, friendship, and fun.
But some of y'all need to hit yourselves with some soap and water.

It goes without saying that DayZ is one of the most popular PC games being played today, with a passionate community that often streams their adventures in the post-apocalyptic world. Now, DayZ is, in itself, a modification for ARMA 2 that was ultimately released as a stand-alone client in 2013. Now that it's its own game, a whole new wave of mods have been released. Two of the most popular mods for the game are Overwatch, which brings PvP combat to DayZ, and Epoch, which introduces base-building and trading systems.
Well, now they are one with the OverPoch mod for DayZ. We're happy to announce that we've partnered together with Custom Combat Gaming to launch the official OverPoch Wiki.
"But I've never heard of OverPoch," you say. Well, keep reading after the break and we'll give you the rundown.
Greetings, beautiful party people of the world wide webbernets. Penny Arcade Expo is upon us once again and I could not be dreading it more!
Wait... no, no. That's what I meant to say.
I hate conventions... okay, that's not entirely true. I love the idea of gathering together, as a community, in a centralized location in order to celebrate everything that makes our passion so unbelievably awesome. What I love a little bit less than that is all of the hassle that goes into "working" an event like this. If you've never worked a video game show, you may not appreciate how unbelievably and unrelentingly tiring these things can be. If you're a member of the press, it's even more frustrating as you spend all day documenting your experiences with notes that are steadily decreasing in their legibility, before dragging your carcass back to the hotel room to try and decipher what in the hell you just scratched down while writing up one of about a dozen preview pieces you're on the hook for that weekend. Throw in the fact that you're fighting against large crowds the whole weekend just to be able to do your job, and by the fourth day you've likely become so delirious that you're now tasting sound.
So, if you're like me (god help you) you'll be spending a lot of time going to panels. They're informative, fun, and most importantly, organized. Sometimes you learn a lot about the video game industry, which can help you land a job in this ultra-competitive field. Other times you watch 30 community managers play WWF Wrestlemania 2000, and it's the best damn part of the show. Either way, there are an untold number of panels going on this year - and I'm going to give you my personal docket for panels I intend to check out.
After the break, of course.
What would have happened if the Imperial colonists had happened to try and settle a continent housing strange and frightening beasts that would threaten their very existence? Well, that's the question that Gaslamp Games asks with their latest effort, Clockwork Empires. Clockwork Empires is a Lovecraftian city-building game that puts you in control of establishing, defending, and ultimately growing your new city as you conquer this untamed land.
We're excited to partner with Gaslamp Games to support the Official Clockwork Empires Wiki, providing you with all of the information you could ever need in order to help you conquer this new land. But what is Clockwork Empires about, exactly? Well, keep reading past the break to learn more.
Outcast Odyssey from Magic Pixel Games brings a new take on classic card battle games to mobile platforms. In it, you will explore strange new worlds, taking on challenging quests and fighting unimaginable dangers as you collect and evolve new cards to help you build the ultimate deck.
We're excited to partner with Magic Pixel Games and Bandai Namco to announce the Outcast Odyssey Wiki. It'll be your one-stop spot to find all of the information you could ever need about the game; card types, different challenges, information on the world, the arena, etc. Once you delve in to the game, you'll be amazed by the breadth of content in the game - which you can learn a little bit about by reading past the break.
Greetings, ladies and gentlemen! It's that time once again to highlight some of the updates that you can find on the Gamepedia YouTube. This has been a busy week for us on YouTube, as we published new trailers for KYN and Outcast Odyssey, highlighted the different card backs that have been unlockable in Healthstone, and we talk about the next-generation of MOBA, Strife.
We talk about Strife a lot this week. If you've been following the game at all, you'll be very happy to see the updates that we've published over this past week. We took a look at some of the core systems in the game, as well as published Hero profiles for many of the characters in the game. But Strife isn't all that we focused on this week; we published new previews from Heroes of the Storm, new content in Star Wars: The Old Republic, and peeked under the curtain at ArcheAge.
So, let's not waste any more time and jump right in, shall we?
...I'm not apologizing for the title...
Pac-Man is the original icon of the video game industry. It's been 34 years since the ghost-gobbling glutton first appeared in arcades, and in the years since we've met his wife and his children. We've seen him become a superhero and a professor. We've even traveled with him across islands and kingdoms.
Now we get to meet his friends.
In Pac-Man Friends for iOS and Android, you'll once again be able to control the video game icon and his many friends as you navigate challenging mazes to rescue Pac-Man's pals from the clutches of Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde. We're excited to announce that we've partnered with Bandai Namco to support the official Pac-Man Friends wiki! Bandai Namco has turned the tried-and-true Pac-Man formula on its ear, and you can learn much more if you just keep on reading down below the break.
"How can 3 million people watched this stream if theirs only 7 million people in the world, and half of those dont have internet?"
"I ahve a 100 word essay due next week, ugh i hate homework"
It’s a sucky, sucky part of life on the internet nowadays. “Trolling” is the intentional misleading of another person or group of people by way of the internet in order to achieve a certain reaction from said individual(s). If you have grown up on the internet, your experience dealing with trolls may vary, and if you’re comfortable with how you compose yourself you might as well stop reading now. The purpose of this week’s Danger Blog will be to help you identify situations of trolling in hopes you can save face in the future.
Last week Sony Online Entertainment dropped a metric ton (we weighed it, using science) of information about their games at their annual SOE Live event in arid beautiful Las Vegas. New announcements and updates were coming left and right from the event, including new information on their "flagship" titles: EverQuest and EverQuest II.
One of the announcements was the impending implementation of a new "advanced looting feature," designed to combat the growing problem of "ninja looting" in the game - where players take items that they may not necessarily need. Sometimes this is as simple as an overly excited player clicking "Loot All" out of habit, while others do this specifically to harass other players. It's a pretty crappy thing to do, and with this new system, which SOE says will adapt to learn based on your initial actions. If it works as SOE intends, it'll help players grab the gear they need while not flooding their inventory with stuff they don't want.
But if you think a new looting system is the only thing coming to EverQuest, you would be wrong. Keep reading after the break to learn about two new expansions, as well as an update on their next EverQuest game: EverQuest Next.
