As Twitchcon was on last week Dylan began thinking about the growing popularity of the Content Creator and Twitch Celebrity and the relationship they have with their fanbase.
After over a year of radio silence, Naughty Dog headlined the latest State of Play with a fresh look at The Last of Us Part II and announced a release date for Early next. Hear Ashley and Ciaran go over everything in the State of Play and question why Xbox scheduled an Inside Xbox on the same day.

Through carnage and loot, Ash and Ciaran discuss what their time has been like so far in the wasteland and beyond in Borderlands 3. Is it living up to the hype?!
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.
