I really, really enjoyed the first two episode’s of Penny Arcade‘s game and was beyond disappointed when I’d heard they had terminated their partnership with Hothead Games, effectively killing off the series right in the middle. So we had two episodes inside of a year then NADA. In fact I believe that Jerry Holkins has been serializing the script on the PA site for the past few..months? Years? I avoided them though, as maybe in my secret steam-powered heart I knew that this series had to be coming back in video game form. And here we are! Though it’s gone from one extreme ( the LucasArts adventure game style of the previous two installments) to the other (16-big, Final Fantasy III/VI SNES stylings of your youth). A welcome change I can get behind, partially because I was totally enthralled with FF on my beloved Super Nintendo and also because the On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is actually continuing.
