IncGamers Podcast #172
On this week’s rapid-fire IncGamers Podcast, you will experience what it’s like when the host only has 25 minutes in which to squeeze said broadcast in. Luckily that doesn’t mean sped-up chipmunk voices, but it does mean a bit less waffling than normal.
Still, it’s 25 minutes of SHEER DISCUSSION GOLD as myself and Tim cover the non-shock announcement of the Grim Fandango remaster for PC, and then spend far too long trying to comprehensively explain the ongoing DOTA 2 playoff system. Listen in to find out which DOTA 2 team are a bit like Costa Rica. Or maybe Ghana. One or the other.
Comparing DOTA 2 to the World Cup is the only way I can parse it. I’m sorry.
After that, there’s extra confusion over what exactly Battleborn is and whether the possible MOBA influence is a good/bad or indifferent thing (hint: nobody knows, because all we’ve seen is a CG trailer and a short interview.)
Then there’s mostly a few minutes of Tim shouting at Cliffy B for being unsure about quite a few things during a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ session. You’ll also learn from Cliffy which major publishers are bad to work with. It’s all of them! Hooray!
The Wolf Among Us has been a popular playing choice this week. We don’t really discuss it on the podcast much, but you can read loads about our opinions here instead.
