Why Tycho?

posted by OttersPod on - last edited - Viewed by 1.9K users
This isn't a complaint or anything; I'm a huge fan of Penny Arcade, and Tycho cracks me up in PNatI. But it seems like I'm in a minority, given how about 45% of the internet community hates him and curses his name all over deviantArt.

So, out of sheer curiosity, why pick him, Telltale? I mean, there are innumerable caches of webcomics out there. Was it just cuz you guys liked him best?

  • Yes, there are lots of webcomics, but Penny Arcade is the only one to achieve any real mainstream success, though.

    I think Tycho was included because Mike and Jerry and Telltale had a mutual fanship of each other.

    4chan and DeviantArt rarely utters credible comments on issues, and this is not one of them.

    Because the XKCD characters just don't look right when modeled in 3d.
  • It would be cool though to see Cyanide and Happiness in the third dimension. Exclamation mark exclamation mark exclamation mark.

    Well, I think it had to be a gaming comic, not just a random webcomic, so that leaves out characters from, say, Something*Positive -- a brilliant webcomic with witty dialogue that'd be right at home in PNatI except video games have come up maybe a dozen times in the comic's 9-year history.

    When you restrict it to gaming comics, I think the only real contender to PA (as far as suitability for PNatI -- not necessarily contender as in overall quality) would be VGCats.

    Damn, xkcd would have been SO much better. I honestly can't stand Tycho and his bestiality in this game.
  • Aww, come on, there's only two species he expresses interest in. ;)

    Speaking of which, there was an article on hedgehogs as domestic animals in my paper this morning. I lol'd.
