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.
Also on the show:
Woody Jackson (The Disaster)

Apple Arcade has had its launch date revealed along with a bunch of different games and details, so Dylan goes over them with Ciaran and Ashley. Who's the most excited for this service? Probably the only person with an Apple device.
The September 2019 Nintendo Direct was too much to contain! So much reveals, release dates and information that Ashley and Dylan need to give it a bonus episode of Arcade Couch.
Spurred by a discussion of Ciaran (hey, Ciaran!) having an Overwatch break, Dylan discusses his League of Legends addiction and why he breaks away from anything that feels like it’s becoming an addiction.
This week it's nothing but announcements and trailers as Dylan and Ash go everything shown during the Indie Direct from Nintendo, the Inside Xbox show and the big one, Opening Night Live from Gamescom hosted by Geoff Keighley.
We're getting Galarian Region versions of Pokémon with Pokémon Sword and Shield and they're, of course, cuties — which Dylan, Ash and Cherie rank. We also have our first look at Team Yell!
Gamer’s erupted into a vicious attack on the developers of Ooblets this week when they announced their game would be going to the Epic Games Store as an exclusive. Also, the ESA leaked a bunch of journalists details, so it's been a week.
We've got a few games to talk about this week, the most important of which is Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It's out, Dylan and Ash have played it and they both like it as first-time Fire Emblem players.
