    I never get the Penny Arcade strips. They don't seem to have punchlines. What am I missing?

      Don't worry shadow, you aren't the only one :-/

      They have a page accompanying each comic with whats on the authors' minds, what the comic is about, what they've been up to or what's happened in tbe world in general that always ties in and explains the comic. With that page's absence, combined with the fact that penny arcade do 3 comics per week and only the last one of each week is displayed here (same goes for many of the comics listed here) it does make it rather difficult to follow yes. Hope that helps

      There was a time when Penny Arcade was funny, but these days they're like the gaming Wizard of Id. They're still in the paper, you might smile a bit, but they've clearly been grandfathered in and if we acknowledge they've been bad for years it reminds us that we're getting older.

      What most people don't realise is that a big percentage of their strips are current game-specific in-jokes. And these are people who literally play games for a living, so they play most of the most recent games at every point. The common human being only plays zero to two of the most recent games at any point, meaning that a lot of those references fall over the bridge.

      A while ago, I made an archive-dump of PA and I "got" a lot more of the jokes simply because I had now played whatever game they were referencing.
