Destructoid review: Penny Arcade Episode 2  photo
Destructoid review: Penny Arcade Episode 2
by Conrad Zimmerman

When Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode One was released, I eagerly gobbled it right up. It was brash, absurd and hilarious, exactly the sort of lampooning that I feel many RPGs which take themselves too seriously deserved.

This week, Episode Two made its way into our clammy, grubby hands and I was eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to return to the world of New Arcadia. Could it live up to the precedent set by the launch of the series? Now that I've had the opportunity to spend more time with John Gabriel and Tycho Erasmus Brahe, I'm ready to tell you. Read on to find out.
