Game Discovery for the 22nd Century:


SEATTLE -- Aug. 22, 2011 -- Penny Arcade’s Decide-o-tron 8000 app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch answers the age-old question of “What game should I play next?"

Created especially to nourish gamers, the Decide-o-tron’s recommendations are based on each individual’s tastes.  Users merely input their gaming preferences, and then marvel as the app’s predictive technology uses this info to compare to a massive library of 45 million data points from more than 10,000 games. 

In addition to the Decide-o-tron’s recommendations, the app will also provide “play lists” from notorious online and gaming personalities, beginning with Penny Arcade’s own Mike “Gabe” Krahulik and Jerry “Tycho” Holkins.

Though humans were technically responsible for its manufacture, they are inferior to the crystalline clarity of its logicore.  Game purchasing advice is the most rudimentary application it can be put to.  Soon, it will tell you which way to turn at all of life’s crucial junctures.  Accept the transition, and losses can be minimized.
