Penny Arcade

Wired just published a really interesting article on the PA guys and their powerful status in the game industry. You know, it's strange that I've internalized the presence of PA in my daily routine as much as I have. I just realized today that it's been around longer than a successful TV show run (8 years and counting). I've read the comic as both creators got married, had kids, quit day jobs, begged for donations from fans, and then turned the corner and made the comic self sufficient. I've seen them go from angry 19-20 year olds (which I certainly was as well), to more mellow 29-30 year olds (which I'm, uh, approaching). What a weird thing to care about...
