Tom, Chris and Pip discuss FIFA gambling legal business, House of Many Doors, Valley, Pit People, and more.
Plus: your questions, your grudges, your 90s celebrity pairings, your unprofessional workplace relationship with a skeleton, your entirely warranted problem with playing games with Chris.
- Here is Eurogamer’s article about the FIFA gambling situation. It has quotes and research and things.
- …and here is the (allegedly?) similar case involving CS:GO last year.
- Pip wrote about her time in House of Many Doors for RPS.
- Tom’s been playing Valley, which is definitely a game and not a dream he had, it turns out.
- If Chris loves The Behemoth so much, why doesn’t he MARRY THEM? A good question. This is Pit People, in any case.
- BUCKLE YOUR PANTS, BUCKLE YOUR PANTS, BUCK- BUCK- BUCK- BUCK- BUCKLE YOUR PANTS
- Arma 3 is a fine military sandbox in which to tit around with your friends.
- A Boy Made of Blocks is Keith Stuart’s book about games that’s not about games. Iain M. Banks’ The Player of Games is also a good book about Dota I mean games it’s about games. Chris fondly remembers Terry Pratchett’s Only You Can Save Mankind.
- Here’s Chris getting (yet another) play of the game that he totally deserves and totally wasn’t entirely set up by Pip, unseen, uncredited.
