Penny Arcade is the Light...

February 2, 2009 -

Last week, GamePolitics reported on the case of an Indiana mother who complained that her daughter's Baby Pals Nintendo DS game uttered the phrase "Islam is the light."

Our exclusive follow-up with publisher Crave Entertainment explained how developers added the game's audio files and why the "Islam" line is little more than an auditory illusion.

Now, the Penny Arcade crew has waded into the controversy in their inimitable way. Hit the PA link for the full cartoon...

GP: Big thanks to longtime reader CyberSkull for the tip!!

Maybe god is talking to her and telling her to change religions... lol or maybe she's just bat friggin nuts.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

Penny Arcade is the light!

Seriously, though, these people are making a mountain out of a molehill, then expecting it to come to them.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

That comic pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Dang, I have their books and video games. I think their brand of humor is pretty good. I also like the fact that their written portion of the site is often as funny as the comic.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! 

Win! Epic Win! Gabe and Tycho have done it again!

*cools down*

Now that I've said that, I find the panel that's in the screenshot to be quite hilarious.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

Actually, the first panel kinda stands on its own.  This woman, and the media, are acting as if those words are the worst kind of foul language imaginable.  Hehe, I figured that there were some crazed Jihadists who might react to the words 'Jesus is the Light' in that way, but I guess I didn't realise how similar to the militant Islamists some of our homegrown wackos are.

But then again, our religious wackos don't wage war on people of other religions... oh, hang on... yeah, I guess they do.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

Agreed the first panel really is the entire comic to me everything else was an add on.

Never underestimate the power of idiots in large amounts.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

Great win, like normal, by Penny Arcade...

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

Is it really news when a gaming and satire comic produces gaming satire? It just feels like ads every time I see a penny arcade comic on this site nya.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

It's news when a gaming and satire comic produces gaming satire related to previous news posts that have appeared on this site.

It's not like Penny Arcade is the only comic they ever link, after all, but their comics do coincide with GP's stories pretty often.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

  I have been a reader of PA since about their second year, and this comic is exactly why.

  I like that they ignored the bigotry one could spot in her reaction and instead went with the idea that she's completely fruit loops.

I loved the last panel especially.  Hilarious.  Standby for her reply/legal threats.

Re: Penny Arcade is the Light...

I don't have much to say but that is awesome :D

Matthew Wilsonyou guys going to talk about the Joystiq closing, and Nintendo losing its mind?01/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Andrew EisenNeo - Do you have any evidence of that? Please link.01/31/2015 - 11:43am
Papa MidnightI enjoyed the first Prototype... even if the PC Port was horribly done. Prototype 2, however, far exceeds it. It's actually a decent game in my opinion.01/31/2015 - 11:24am
Wonderkarpreally? I didnt play it because the first one sucked. I didnt even know the main characters black01/31/2015 - 10:38am
Neo_DrKefkaFor those who don't know Prototype 2 is free for the PS3 on PS PLUS! It's a great game that failed due to collusion with activist bloggers before the game was released that people would hate it because the main characters black.01/31/2015 - 9:53am
Wonderkarpalso heard Techraptor is working on a big news piece on indiecade01/31/2015 - 9:47am
WonderkarpAndrew : All I know is he was critical of the block list and said the coding was bad.01/31/2015 - 9:42am

Andrew EisenI only know of him being annoyed that IGDA mistakenly hosted on its anti-harassment tools page a blocklist he was on. What else was he critical of?01/31/2015 - 2:19am
Goth_Skunk@WonderKarp: Given Rosario's outspoken criticisms of the conduct of the IGDA, I would not be one bit surprised if he's being strong-armed into silence in closed-door meetings. He's not towing the party line, after all.01/30/2015 - 11:38pm
MechaTama31EZK: Thank you! (And I was able to see that you did it, only because you did it. How appropriate! :)01/30/2015 - 11:37pm
Matthew Wilson@Monte Nintendo is a Japanese company though. consoles are dead in japan. ps sony is a international company, so they do not much care about Japanese sales much.01/30/2015 - 10:11pm
MonteOnly one generation ago nintnedo had the best selling console. They know their games are still popular and can move their hardware. They just need to focus on better gaming hardware and advertising (their youtube policy not helping)01/30/2015 - 9:58pm
MonteI'd expect Nintendo to keep making consoles, much like the gamecube i doubt nintendo will see the Wii U as a sign of the end for consoles. There are multiple reason why the Wii U failed a big one being marketting.01/30/2015 - 9:55pm
Wonderkarpwhen asked on Twitter, the Chairman said He couldnt comment at this time https://twitter.com/siloraptor/status/561284497275367424. still looking for facts01/30/2015 - 9:41pm
Wonderkarphttp://pressfarttocontinue.com/2015/01/30/igda-puerto-rico-closed/ this is what I have so far01/30/2015 - 9:27pm
Wonderkarpso allegedly, IGDA has closed their Puerto Rico branch. This comes after the Chairman of the Puerto Rico branch was blocklisted by Randi Harper. I'm trying to dig up more info on it. all I have is a link with some info, but its not cited.01/30/2015 - 9:27pm
Andrew EisenSo, kinda like the Wii U just with a GamePad that's portable?01/30/2015 - 9:13pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I hope they do a Ipad/iphone thing. make a home console/handheld where games are playable on both. that is what I would want from them.01/30/2015 - 9:00pm
