You can hardly see the joins.

It’s casual Friday Tuesday, so while Paul is buried under a mountain of work, Tim and I have an agenda-less chat for an hour. See if you can spot the difference between this and our usual podcast. There will not be prizes.

Tim’s been living an FMV dream in 2014 with the Kickstarted Tex Murphy adventure. That means podcast confusion over weird logic puzzles, delight at cheesy green-screen and another reference to the amazing Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties. I’ve been playing BattleBlock Theater and Dynasty Warriors: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition (a bit,) so those are things you will hear me say words about.

Mixed in, we’ll have a look at the terrifying Watch Dogs release chart of death (courtesy of Wikipedia,) discuss The Year of the Spider, gaze at the big pile of money Valve has made from selling the International 4 Compendium for Dota 2 and wonder whether Epic have finally cracked game design by just letting somebody else (or a lot of somebody elses) make the new Unreal Tournament for them.

Exciting podcast, no? Yes!

Just audio for the podcast this week, but you can stream it or download it below. Other podcasts are available for comparative purposes in our vast archives, and there are some at iTunes as well.

    I know a cat, but I don’t think she listens to the podcast. Oh, and insert your favorite Twin Peaks reference here.

    All the adventure game chat reminded me that the word “inventory” is interesting, because only games use it that way. It’s stuff that’s in a warehouse or a shop, not things a person carries with them. Was Infocom the first to use it, in Zork? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t earlier editions of D&D, so I think it started with computer games.

    It’s a particularly blatant (though minor) example of quite a lot of games doing something just because that’s the way it’s been done in the past.

    I really hope there are no giant spiders in Football Manager 2015.

  3. I heard the mildly irritating term “personal inventory” used quite a lot
