PAX 2009 is just a few days away, and to celebrate, Microsoft discounting Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode Two as its Xbox Live Deal of the Week.
On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is of course the Penny Arcade roleplaying game, developed by Canada's Hothead Games. Hothead's creative director is Ron Gilbert of Monkey Island fame, and he'll be delivering the keynote speech at this year's show. Coincidence? Probably not. Either way, all of these events have led to Episode Two of the Penny Arcade Adventures being marked down 33 per cent, from 1200 Microsoft points to 800, or $US15 to $US10. This is an excellent chance for folks like me, who played the first part but never got around to indulging in the second, to finally continue their adventure while still having enough left over for a foot long sub at an international sandwich shop franchise location.
Sometimes these posts are just me trying to figure out where to have lunch.
