No, donít panic. Calm! Calm! Thatís how Chris Wís friend informed him via tweet (http://twitter.com/garypendergast/status/11266192960)that there wonít be a third episode of the Penny Arcade games (http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/63028). Wot a bast! Anyway, despite Hothead previously saying theyíll do it despite sales of Episode 2 being a third of Episode 1 (http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/22894/GDC_Hothead_Duo_Talk_DeathSpank_Indie_Experience_E pisodic_Gaming_Retreat.php). Hothead plan to concentrate on DeathSpank, but finish the actual narrative on their website (http://www.hotheadgames.com/blog/?p=130). More info on Shacknews (http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/63028) and Joystiq (http://www.joystiq.com/2010/03/26/penny-arcade-adventures-discontinued-there-wont-be-an-episode/), who broke the story. All in all, a bit of a shame.

Hah.
You try to kill us or you are just waiting for the first person to rage like hell?
Defibrillator please.

Not funny dude!
After this thread (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1190567) im not suprised.

Being funny is just not what flamov can do the best. Maybe its because he is british.:p

He is good when it comes to deliever nice threads with news most of the time so i try to ignore this like i did with the last thread.:p

Because it's SRSBNZ!

Lighten up! It doesn't need to be moved, it just needs to be *actually read all the way through*. The only people p'd off at it are those who have only read the thread title, and not bothered to actually understand the CONTENT of the post.

It's poking fun at the people who can't read through stuff.

The Joke is related to the Half-Life Universe. This thread has gone on long enough without any mod interference so I think its find where it is.

Use your head, lighten up, take a bath.

Yeah, I read it and got it. I just didn't think it was very funny (Gabe and Episode 3.. oh I know! Joke time). I really don't feel like I'm that hard to please, I just feel like people try way too hard to make a joke sometimes.

Seriously, they canned this for Deathspank? Who is making decisions over at Hothead, a somewhat less than infinite number of chimpanzees?

Sure. Deathspank is OK, but "On The Rain Slick Precipice" was amazing :(

Yeah, althought i was wondering all the fuzz was about and what it had to do with HL2 till I understood the post been moved. Then with all the "it's fake" post and stuff, I thought that PA game EP 3 was to be made. I just bought recently Ep1 and Ep2...
