The Game Awards are returning for another year and it wouldn't be an awards season without the Explosion Network trying to predict the winners. So Dylan, Ash, Cherie and Ciaran all put their bettin' hats on as they try to guess who will win each and every category from this year's upcoming awards.
Several big games dropped this week as well and Dylan and Cherie have played two of them -- Spyro Reignited Trilogy & Pokemon Let's Go. Hear how the remake of the purple dragon came along and how Pokemon is treating a returning player as well as a new one,

The Nintendo Switch Lite's announcement had the internet split. Some thought it was ridiculous, and others didn't care — there didn't seem to be a middle. But Dylan, Cherie and Ashley discuss WHO exactly they think the target audience for the Switch Lite could be. Is it kids? 3DS owners? Switch owners? All of the above? Feel free to let us know what you think.
We're making out Pokemon so big in the next Pokemon games that we're turning whipped cream into a cake! Dylan, Ash and Cherie are here to discuss all the whipped up details from the latest Pokemon Sword & Shield trailer.
With half the year gone, it's time talk about what's coming up for the rest of the year. Do think the big stuff is already out? You'd be dead wrong.
You may have seen the words 'Auto Chess' or 'Auto Battler' around lately and for good reasons, they're taking over Twitch, and soon, the world! Well, maybe not the latter, but this new genre is certainly taking over Twitch, but WTF is it? Dylan and Ash explain and discuss.
We got to see a lot of games at this year’s E3 but there were a bunch of games that notable absent from the festivities. Ashley and Ciaran look over those games and discuss why they weren’t there and when we will see them next.
