Episode 171 of the Electronic Wireless Show podcast: the best inventories in special sets
This week, the Electronic Wireless Show podcast discusses some of our favorite (and least favorite) inventory setups. A humble beast, inventory, yet a feature of many games – sometimes even a necessity. Often we only notice one if it’s terrible. But boy, a good inventory is worth a dozen mules. So let’s talk about it today!
In other news this week, Nate thinks he’s come up with an original premise for a Pixar movie, only to find he invented Seth Rogan’s nightmarish movie Sausage Party and we officially kick off our campaign to get Henry. ‘Vitamin H’ Cavill on the show. We’ll mention it every week from now on. Plus: things we like to do on our birthdays, school plays, and pro-wrestling adaptations of Dickens.
You can listen on Spotify, or above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later. You can also discuss the episode on our Discord channel, which has a dedicated podcast chat room.
You can also get the RSS feed here or find it on iTunes, Stitcher or Pocket Casts.
The music is by Jack de Quidt, who has very well organized closets.
Nate really likes NEO Scavenger’s Carry Bags, which are bags that you can un-crease to fit even more bags!
Matthew likes the sentient luggage in the Discworld point ‘n’ click adventure game, as well as the flasher coat in Alone In The Dark.
We don’t like the text list in Skyrim, or the weird vault you teleport into in Fable 3, which is haunted by a butler with the voice of John Cleese.
I cheat by mentioning Wilmot’s Warehouse and Moonlighter, both of which are games about organizing inventories.
Shout out to The Lego Ankh-Morpork Project.
Recommendations this week are dramatizing the origins of the opioid epidemic in Ken Branagh Belfast’s semi-autobiographical film Dopesick, and considering finding a tutor at superprof.co.uk
