That one where they escape a prison camp and walk across Asia?
edit: I googled the above phrase and found - The Way Back

Holy Snickerdoodle! A Podcast!!!
Cool. Is it on iTunes yet? I can't see it.

why can I only get 10kB/s download from your site?
And A Golden Wake was good, people are just now realizing that (maybe), I think back on it very fondly like Inherit the Earth

Holy Wow  (wtf)

If Jane and Mike are the hands of a clock, I'd say an hour.
But too simple I'm sure.

One from the article above, perceived fairness, even in adventure games we often use rng’s to determine success. Pure random outcomes don’t always feel random, so track the misses and if two “misses” in a row the next attempt is a garaunteed “hit”(or keep adding an accuracy bonus after each miss and reset on the next hit).
Already described: TellTales infamous trick, the narrative suggest that this decision will have lasting consequences but under the hood nothing changes (this actually annoys me because you can spot it easily, but a nice extra touch nonetheless).
Also already touched on, but often we acquire an item that will not be used for sometime. When receiving the item tell a “story” regarding its use that can be tangibly linked to the entirely different use later. Ex. This newspaper headline makes some fiery accusations of the mayor, then later use the paper to keep the fireplace going long enough to see the killer.

Like behind one mondster (the bully) is a larger monster (abusive dad)..

That's a good observation... because that scene seemed sort of unnecessary. Or maybe not unecessary but... well not sure how to describe it. It was a 2 min scene of characterization right toward the end of the season. It almost seemed out of place. But I think you might be onto something... cos that does give it a more legitimate reason to have been included.
Hey, you know, seemingly unnecessary stand-outs make art

Thanks guys I’ll take this advice  :)

The blue cup is traditionally mandatory, mostly.
I don’t think anyone has used it as a weapon yet, or maybe to lower something from a window attached to a string...

and now for a necro-thread-revival!

What anti-virus are you guys running?
I use Avast Free, and I am convinced it hates AGS and causes all kinds of weird crappy behaviour on my computer (ie. massive delay to keystrokes in harmless software like WordPad)
Looking for an alternative...

Watched it!
Good stuff, did anyone else get that the Alasdair's  (laugh) brother was some kind of foreshadowing? Like behind one mondster (the bully) is a larger monster (abusive dad).. so behind the shadow monster???

What is it about smooth cursor movement?
I was just searching for an answer on this 8-0
AGS 3.4.0
For the last week or two, I've been experiencing really bad "lag??" with my cursor. I'll type something or move the cursor and it takes 30-60sec to register, all the drop down menus pop up clear and after a painfully long time they populate.. just every click and keypress takes a really long time to process. I've been running antivirus, ad-removal etc. trying to clean up my system, but seems to be isolated to AGS.
EDIT: opened WordPad and it is having same issues, its likely an issue with my system.. Which I would love to resolve....
