Gears of War gets Penny Arcadified

Gabe over at Penny Arcade whipped up this very nice sketch of Marcus from Gears of War yesterday. I guess we missed it somehow. Was something going on yesterday? Perhaps some of you might like to make it your new wallpaper (though I have opted for Halo Wars). I'd use it as my wallpaper, but white backgrounds hurt my sensitive little eyes. See a larger version after the break.



You can grab the full size behemoth directly from PA.

1. Those are some nice wallpapers!

2. What's the deal with people going crazy over Penny Arcade? I mean, they make some amusing funnies, but that's about it, right? Unless I'm missing something else, I don't see what's the big deal with them even getting their own Expo (PAX). I hope someone can shed some light as to what their involvement is in the game industry and what kind of credibility they have. Please be polite. Thanks.

3. People don't GET thier own anything, much less a gaming expo. They make one. PA do a lot of community outreach programs, and they have a massive readership. It's pretty simple. They've purposely created a thriving business from thier comic, and managed to do so without alienating thier fans or "selling out". I'm not some raving Penny Arcade fan, but they have set the standard for a successfull web comic.
