Part UMPC, part MID and part tablet PC, this mishmash has captivated us for quite some time, and while we were able to spend a few brief moments with it at CEATEC, the crew over at Pocketables was able to snag a shipping unit to...

Now that Penny Arcade Adventures has finally landed, Joystiq got to sit down with Jerry Holkins (better known by his alter-ego Tycho Brahe) and discuss the creation of the game and how it has impacted the folks behind Penny Arcade.
