The Australian Game awards aired this past week around a lot of criticism and after their initial thoughts on the show, Dylan and Ashley go over the final show and its winners. Is the show receiving just criticism, or are people just being negative and should cut it some slack?

Our other gaming shows
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.
