This week on Argue the Toss, the bitesize podcast from gameindustry.com, Chella is joined by John Breeden and they discuss the best games for non-gamers.

The news headlines today are all about Chris Pranger, who was fired from Nintendo for speaking a little too frankly on a recent podcast.

After a long and exhaustive search through both the physical world and time itself, Chella has finally located the creepy bunker from Life is Strange that we all knew was there. Question is, did she really want to find this?
Things are getting a bit darker, but Chella is still on the case with Life is Strange episode 4: Dark Room. It’s time to start gathering clues on the trail for the missing Rachel. What’s Nathan Prescott hiding?
