This week Chella and Drew recount their favourite experiences from this year’s AdventureX, the UK’s only convention dedicated to narrative-driven games. It was a busy convention this year, so they didn’t have time to see everything, so there’s probably a few glaring omissions – but don’t worry, they’ll be there next year, too, and you can take them to task then.
The Breaking Bad epilogue movie is out, and fans can finally find out what happened to Jesse Pinkman after the events of the series finale. Drew and Chella are here to tell you whether it’s good (it is) and/or necessary (it’s not, but things don’t have to be “necessary” to be good).
It’s the last episode before Hallowe’en, but due to some spoOoOoky technical difficulties, this week Argue The Toss strikes a dark bargain and resurrects a seriously spine-chilling episode from beyond the grave. We’ll be back as normal next week.
Untitled Goose Game sends a disgruntled goose with a mission into a village to wreak havoc. Your mission is to ruin each villager’s day in a range of inventive ways. Drew and Chella discuss the goose game that’s more Hitman than Animal Crossing.
Telling Lies is the investigation game from Sam Barlow, of Her Story fame. It uses the same basic mechanic, but adds more characters and features to tell a brand new story that feels more grounded than Her Story’s fairytale drama.
Argue Toss is back with the must play games and must watch films of autumn 2019

Drew and Chella discuss their summer viewing habits, covering game design in Taskmaster and the new generation of teen comedy dramas, Sex Education and Booksmart.
Special Argue the Toss guest journalist and philosopher Jordan Erica Webber discusses the concept of unreliable narrators in videogames, looking at some of the challenges as well as a few of the games that employ this narrative device really well.
