S2|E16 - Untangling Virginia

If you go down to the Kingdom woods, you're sure of a weird surprise. If you go down to those woods today, they're full of the FBI. 'Cause sleepy towns on 90s TV all hide dark secrets amidst the trees - Today's the day the team talk about Virginia.

 

This week Drew and Chella Argue the Toss about the debut game by developer Variable State - an ethereal, wordless first-person mystery thriller that's equal parts Twin Peaks, X-Files, Silence of the Lambs and the Outer Limits. Grab a cup of coffee - damn good coffee, and hot - and listen along.

 

Warning: Contains spoilers. Or does it? Isn't that all just down to interpretation?

S2 | E15 - Dorito TV
It's a dry week for releases, so, with no games afoot, the ATTeam turn to a very special genre - the episodic controllerless videogame, known to connoisseurs as 'television'.

 ​After a busy couple of weeks, Chella and Drew ​have returned to their homes to see what's on, and ​talk about shows that they always want one more bite of. ​Drew ​discusses his Elementary binge, while Chella delves even further into literary history with the BBC's adaptation of The Three Musketeers.

​Meanwhile, Drew tries to write a decent show blurb, realises he doesn't know any good Three Musketeers references, and ends up feeling like a Dumas.​
