Eureka Falls' Newspapers

The town of Eureka Falls has two daily newspapers, each with a distinct point of view. Players should buy both papers daily in order to get a range of opinions on the issues in the game. The Courier-Dispatch is the businessman's paper, taking a strong anti-labor line at every opportunity. The Siren is extremely pro-labor and never misses an opportunity to take shots at the wealthy.

Players buy the paper each day from Joey the newsboy when they are downtown. Once purchased, the papers can be retrieved from the Brain's inventory. Individual articles can be clicked on and read at any time. However, if a player fails to buy a paper on any given day, he or she will not be able to go back and buy it the next day.

Both papers have a playful side as well. The Courier-Dispatch features a comic strip called The Outbursts of Everett True, a real-life amusement from 1906 which might be considered an ancestor of the show Curb Your Enthusiasm. The Siren has a fondness for lurid cautionary tales about youth gone bad.
