A whole lot more of Game Awards stuff from all directions of Earth this week as The Australian Game Awards have released their nominees' list and Dylan, Ash and Ciaran try and predict the announcements coming out of Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards.
Dylan and Ash have finally put some time in Fallout 76 and break down what they think of the very confusing and messy experience it is right now. Ciaran gives his thoughts on the latest digital card game, Artifact which is based on DOTA. And then Nick drops by the couch to tell Dylan about his time in Red Dead Online.
