It’s been a busy year for gamers, so far, but Chella knows there’s a lot more to come. She picks the must play games for autumn 2016.
Drew and Chella discuss Inside, the latest game from Limbo developer, Playdead. From the puzzling ending and the artsy intentions, can the Argue The Toss team agree to disagree?
Playdead’s Inside game is the spiritual sucessor to Limbo. If you haven’t played Limbo, just play Inside instead because it’s like the best version of Limbo – a perfect, atmospheric little puzzler with just the right mix of creepy mystery mixed in for good measure.
Regular reality’s just not real enough, so this week Argue The Toss returns to the virtual, this time with special guest, Dr. Wendy Powell, senior member of the IEEE and senior lecturer in applications of VR at the University of Portsmouth.
In post-Brexit Britain, the false hope of the little Englander mentality portrayed in We Happy Few is even more depressing. Chella is not convinced by the survival gameplay mechanic and hopes Compulsion can deliver a compelling experience once early access is over.
Chella and John discuss Mass Effect Andromeda and the six things they want to see in BioWare’s new space epic, when it launches in March 2017.
This week, Pokemon GO proved that you should never underestimate Nintendo. Chella considers the AR phenomenon that has sent Nintendo’s share values soaring and seen people walking into lampposts.
This week’s ATT is a catch-all catch-up cast. The duo discuss Drew’s newfound obsession with Dark Souls, chat about Oxenfree, The Beginner’s Guide, 1979 Revolution, and finally sort out that whole Brexit mess.
Chella takes stock and picks the best games of 2016, so far. It’s been a great start to the year, but it looks set to get even better.
Looking beyond the blockbusters, Chella picks out the best indie games of E3 2016.
