  1. This is such a jam packed episode with audio diaries, match commentaries, and interviews both in and around the stadium—sometimes Every Game feels more like a documentary than a discussion podcast. Speaking of documentary, we actually have video of that moment when Shang Lun, Alex, Yang Jing, and Peter enter the stadium and see Dota for the first time! For announcements and extras check out the Every Game twitter account!
  2. Every Game in This City 202: On the Surface of Boiled Underwear Water From our local police station to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, we finally watch our first match together at the International Dota 2 Championships...and it's a doozy! After unpacking the hour-long contest between Vici Gaming and TNC Predator, Alex, Shang Lun, Peter, and Yang Jing teach us a little about what they learned on Day 1 before before we take a deep dive into the Dota 2 ecosystem with our first special guest: CEO of Chaos Esports Club, Greg Laird!

  3. Hi everyone! We're back with another season of Every Game in This City—but instead of trying to play every escape room in Kuala Lumpur, our motley crew met up in Shanghai during the summer of 2019 to try and watch every game of the International Dota 2 Championship! We originally planned to release this season in the lead up to the International in 2020, but we fell behind during the pandemic (and then the tournament was cancelled!) Fortunately, even though we recorded in the before times, the conversations we had and experiences we documented are still relevant in 2021. Following our first season, the cast is a mixture of people who know a lot about Dota with those who had never played it. There were also folks who know a lot about China alongside those who were visiting for the first time. So we'll be coming at Dota from a different perspective and trying to capture the way we played together in and around TI9! Oh, also, we didn't have the Idle Forums hooked up for season 1 (should I make a thread?) but figured it might be useful for season 2. Feel free to post reactions, questions, and your own experiences playing and watching Dota!
  4. Every Game in This City 200 and 201: From Escape Rooms to Esports We're back! In Season 2 of Every Game in This City eight game designers, researchers, journalists, and curators meet up in Shanghai to try and watch every game in the 2019 International Dota 2 Championships. In this short introduction, Stephanie, Patrick, and Will try to connect the dots between escape rooms and esports: What are we doing? What aren't we doing? And what do we hope to learn as we jump into a new game in a new city with a new cast? Listen on the Episode Page Listen on Soundcloud Listen on iTunes Listen on Spotify FIFA in a Magical Forest The battle begins! In the first full episode of Every Game in This City Season 2, the team gathers at the top of a penthouse in Huangpu, Shanghai the day before the International Dota 2 Championships in 2019 to talk about our Dota pasts, Dota predictions, and the case of the missing tickets! In the interlude Will, Stephanie, and Patrick try to explain the ins and outs of Dota 2 (with sound effects!) before the group reveals the thorny reality of actually getting tickets for a Dota tournament.
