Live from the Audio-Technica booth at PAX Australia 2019, Dylan, Ashley and Cherie discuss their favourite games of the show and how much the show seems to have slowed down ahead of next-gen.
Blizzards have managed to step in it ahead of BlizzCon this year after banning a Hearthstone player for declaring support of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. Dylan and Ashley discuss what Blizzard can do to fix the situation if Blizzard is in their right to ban the player and what potential outcome we could have.
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.

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.
