Crazy. Wacky. Zany. Wild. Hilarious. Unpredictable.
All of these words can be used to describe gaming hall-of-famers like Tycho, Strongbad, Sam & Max, and TF2′s Heavy. The game of Poker, though? Well, let’s just say we can personally vouch for the fact that World Series of Poker matches on ESPN are a fantastic sleep aid.

Namco Bandai and Penny Arcade are teaming up to bring you a new webcomic based on Tekken 6.
The limited series is a six-parter focusing on the mysterious past of Roger who was created using Kangaroo DNA.
At least we assume it’s Roger because that’s how his creation was explained in Tekken 2. Who knows where the guys at Penny Arcade will take this.
Game’s out October 27 in the US for PS3 and Xbxox 360.
Full press release after the break.

Penny Arcade Expo dates for 2009 have been announced and pre-registration opened.
PAX 2009 will take place September 4-6 at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center in Seattle.
It’s going to be massive this year, so get involved now.
“Every year, we essentially double our attendance, but let me say right now that’s not happening for 2009,” said Penny Arcade’s Robert Khoo.
“We’ve rented every square foot in the center and it still won’t be enough. The facility has requested that we not exceed capacity, so we’re going to be closely monitoring the number of badges we sell this year.
“But, fear not. Our goal is the same as ever: to offer a world-class show to all attendees, focusing on amazing content and experiences for the truly hardcore.”
Last year’s keynote was given by Ken Levine, but there’s no word yet on who will deliver it this year.

Penny Arcade’s surveyed 38,350 readers on their gaming preferences, which has to be the largest sample of its type. Like, ever.
It’s well worth a nose. The average age of those questioned is 26, and 94 percent of them are male.
They’re not too keen on PS3 either, apparently.
- PC: 86.3%
- Xbox 360: 54.1%
- Wii: 53.5%
- PS2: 52.7%
- Nintendo DS: 51.5%
- iPhone/iPod: 29.9%
- XBOX: 26.2%
- PS3: 24.5%
- Sony PSP: 20.5%
Take a look.

Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play charity – which sees gamers of all walks of life and stations of play donate cash to sick children in hospitals – recently wrapped up its 08/09 campaign. The final tally? Excuse us for a moment as we shove aside a few words to make space for this gargantuan number.
This, of course, smashes Child’s Play’s 2007 record of $1.3 million. All to purchase games and toys for sick children. And people say gamers are a despicable lot.
Great job to everyone who donated, and here’s to an incredibly child-friendly 2009/2010 season.
