Argue the Toss - the geek and gaming podcast for www.gameindustry.com. Drew and Chella discuss the latest releases, trailers and news for games and other aspects of geek culture, with a particular focus on writing.
After a couple of virus-related delays (that's the biological kind, not the computer kind), this fortnight's episode of Argue the Toss has finally arrived.
This week Chella and Drew recount their favourite experiences from this year's AdventureX, the UK's only convention dedicated to narrative-driven gaming.
El Camino - A Breaking Bad Movie review
Six years after we watched Jesse Pinkman crash through the chain-link gates of his prison in Todd Alquist's car, we finally find out what happened to him next in the Breaking Bad epilogue movie, El Camino.
Drew and Chella are here to discuss whether it's a worthwhile addition to the Breaking Bad legacy, or just a case of gilding the lily.
From the Archives: Hereditary Vs. The VVitch
In the long-awaited third installment of our "Completely Unseasonal Theme Episodes" series, this week Argue The Toss goes full horror with a double-bill of scary movies, four months from Hallowe'en. Chella and Drew have been to see A24's supernatural witch-based psychological horror slash family drama Hereditary, and unrelatedly, A24's supernatural witch-based psychological horror slash family drama The Witch. They now return to somehow try and find some common ground between these two movies.
The appeal of playing a game as an angry goose
Untitled Goose Game is the game nobody knew they needed. Beyond it's meme-friendly aesthetic lies a good game, with more in common with Hitman, than it does with other cutesy titles, such as Animal Crossing.
Discussing Sam Barlow's Telling Lies
Telling Lies is a spiritual successor to Her Story, with more characters and some mechanic tweaks. Not all of the changes are improvements, but there's still a lot to enjoy in this investigation game.
The must watch films and must play games for autumn 2019
Be a disgruntled goose and indulge in some gaming nostalgia this autumn or head to the movies for a good selection of horror and drama.
I can listen to this podcast almost in any situation which is great, I always look forward to listening to these two after I have seen or listened to something really great. Insightful and funny which is really great as well.
I am not SUPER into gaming and tech, but the way Drew & Chella entertain and inform is great. Need more VR shows! :-)
