podcast 174

Hey, you, podcast listener. Do you know what lanes are? How about carries? If you were thinking motorways and shopping bags rather than Dota 2 then the opening … oooh, twenty minutes or so … of this week’s IncGamers Podcast might be a bit confusing. Or boring. You might also enjoy it. We mention Darude, does that help?

Assuming you’re fine with Dota 2 chat, hopefully our discussion of The International 4’s rather disappointing finale, the incredible and awkward After Party stream and the showcase reveal of the Techies will be up to snuff. We do try.

After all that we squeeze in a bit of news about the 100% totally Vladimir Putin (and his daughter) endorsed Kickstarter project Areal being suspended by, well, Kickstarter. This is a project that’s veered between being a bit dodgy and outright scam territory, so it’s not too upsetting to see Kickstarter step in and do something. Maybe a bit surprising though, because it takes a lot for Kickstarter to knowingly forgo it’s cut of the pledge pie.

Tim also brings us news of a somewhat backward Square Enix Humble Bundle, in which you’re enticed to pay more money for Deus Ex: Invisible War and Hitman: Absolution, when you’ve already got Thief Gold and Anachronox for whatever amount you want. That’s the wrong way around, Square! You want to make people pay more for the good games.

In a curiously ethics based edition of Games That IncGamers Staff Have Played This Week, I’ve been trying to solve socio-economic issues in the fantasy version of India presented by Unrest and Tim’s been sort of resolving a hostage crisis in Gods Will Be Watching. I say sort of, because “he had to kill a couple of them.”

Have a listen below, or download it for later listening. Other episodes of the IncGamers Podcast can be found in our archives and at iTunes.

    well done you even managed to make the DOTA competition talk interesting, which is a achievement of epic herculean scale, since I have zero interest in the subject, I hate DOTA 2 ever since I first tried to play the game, joined a server called noobs only, and was insulted and thrown out for being a noob

    1. Thanks! Maybe it’s because only one third of the podcast really know anything about Dota :D

  2. I dont like the rock paper scissors thing in Original Sin, its mega irritating, fuck off, im the the boss, FANTASTIC game but the inventory is a fucking nightmare, and why doesn’t clicking on a portrait change the viewed inventory, you HAVE to click the arrows to switch characters instead
