Our other gaming shows
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.
IGEA have published the Digital Australia 2020 (DA20) report and its full of a bunch of interesting statistic about Australian's who play games. Dylan and Ash go over the key findings and discuss what big things stand out them.
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.
