Penny Arcade series concludes…celebrate with schwag!


It’s Wednesday – so here comes another Penny Arcade Fallout comic. It’s not just any comic though…it’s the final one. Head over to the Fallout 3 Official Site to see how the saga of the Vault 77 Dweller ends.

While you might be sad to see the comic go away, I’ll try to turn that frown upside down. At my desk, I’ve got some leftover goodies from PAX to giveaway. From amongst the schwag, five lucky winners will win a Vault Dweller’s Survival Guide. Additionally, three very lucky winners will win Survival Guide, a signed Fallout 3 poster, and one of the coveted Fallout 3 puppets.

Here’s the basic rules:

  • Send an email to [email protected]. In it, let us know which of the 12 comics was your favorite.
  • All e-mails must be received by midnight (U.S. EST), Sunday, October 12th. Winners will be randomly selected and contacted shortly there after. Any foul play detected will result in automatic disqualification.
  • All participants must be 18 or older to enter and verification may be required before the winner is announced.

Good luck!

  1. I seriously thought “omg… how can it be good if it was only 12 comics and #11 had left it with so much possibilities and left it with such a big opening” … then BAM!! #12 just made it perfect.

    *sigh* … if only I knew what happened to him later.

    Maybe it’ll be a special encounter in Fallout 3 to meet him. 😀

  2. It’s over? But we still have 20 days of waiting. What are we supposed to do for the next 19 Days, 9 Hours, 59 minutes and 48 seconds with no comics to read? I need my Fallout Fix.

  3. Please, try to do some more comics. Maybe even a paper edition?

    Fallout fan begs you….

    P.S. Hey, we in Europe also want Survival Edition. How come we can’t get it???

  4. Yes the comics were short and sweet, but the game to fallow in 2 weeks, 5 days, and 9 hours, will more than make up for it.
    You do know that you can buy mature games starting at age 17 (in the US that is), right?

  5. It would be awesome if the “Puppet Man” is in Fallout 3 (random encounter?) or you find a corpse containing the puppet. Perhaps the puppet as a DLC skin for the Power Fist?

  6. Just entered. If he was a random encounter, Fallout 3 would reach critical levels of awesome. Sucks that I have to get FO3 and then wait a month for FarCry2; stupid paycheck.

  7. Leaving the vault was the best one in my opinion. Standing next to a giant Scorpion: “This is a big decision… maybe we should sleep on it”

  8. Oh, man. I typoed my e-mail so bad…but, I honestly can’t wait for this to finally come out after about a decade of waiting. Unfortunately I have to wait for my copy to arrive from England, so I’ll be a bit late for the party. At least there’s a slew of fantastic games coming around the same time, so I should be busy for the time being.

    I’m not an avid reader of Penny Arcade, but the guys did a wonderful job with these comics. I think they made a new fan 🙂

  9. Yeah, here in the UK we have to wait 3 MORE DAYS than you yankee dudes. I’ve pre-ordered collectors edition from gamestop anyway, coz I want that limited edition Vault Dwellers guide, but damn. You’re right guys, end of October can’t come soon enough.

    As for PAC, if it is an easter egg in the Game, I’ll tattoo “Bethesda made my 10 years” on my neck.

  10. seriously… i want to propose to the person who first said “hey guys, why dont we make another fallout game?… everyone loves that, right?”

    just because of these comics, i went to the penny arcade website and read every single comic there.

  11. The lease on my apartment ends on November 15th and I am moving across country. I could technically have worked up until a few days before my departure so I have a few extra dollars in case anything goes wrong…but no..I chose to make my last day October 28th. I ordered the survivors edition and am having it shipped overnight. Total cost: $146.82. I justify the cost by telling people I only had save $14.68 every year until it was released.

  12. Yeah, I just paid over 200$ (CAN) to get the survival’s edition mailed to canada. I’ll get it probably a week after the 28th. Im also gonna buy the the normal version at bestbuy on the canada release date (oct 30) so I can play.

  13. So…what about those results? I wouldn’t want to refresh this page for ever. 🙂

    Man, I haven’t been so anxious about an upcoming game since my early days of gaming. I only hope it can live up to the hype.

  14. fallot 3,what else to say,even if it is like 2d scroling arcade with story on commodore 64,i would play it now,been waiting for it many years.

  15. Aw sad panda. I wish there was a way I could get at least some of the devs to sign some schwag. I never can make it to a gaming convention because of work… I’ve missed sooo much stuff. 🙁

  16. hay you should have a cut scene in the beginning of the game with the guy from vault 77 killing the bandit and then you chose wheter to kill him or run like a winny baby
