Game Together is a podcast all about family video games. Covering Switch, Playstation, Xbox and mobile, we'll be talking about the video games we love playing together. We're on a mission to show that video games can be enjoyed by anyone and that they can bring people together (unless you lose at Mario Kart too many times).
Animal Crossing 2.0 - What's coming in the biggest update yet?
We've been eagerly awaiting the Animal Crossing Direct since the tease of Brewsters at last weeks Nintendo Direct and it didn't disappoint. It was jam-packed with news, content and some surprises too.
In this week's episode, we'll run through all the new things (and the things that should arguably have been there since the start) and let you know which we're most excited about.
Plus, special guest Elsie helps us understand what to expect from the DLC
It's an Animal Crossing heavy episode so we hope you enjoy it.

WarioWare Review, Boomerang Fu and more made up games
This week we're back with a review of WarioWare Get It Together for Nintendo Switch. We love WarioWare games so the prospect of a multiplayer version was right up our street. Lois gives the rundown on the details, what she loves and all the features of this new game.
We've also been playing Boomerang Fu, an absolute stonker of an indie game from Cranky Watermelon. If you're looking for an easy to play difficult to master family party game, we may have found you the answer. Check it out at https://www.boomerangfu.com/
Finally, we're back with more of Lois' Dream Games - this time she takes on Mario and comes up with a multiplayer team battle that could be pretty fantastic.

Being a Gamer Parent with Jed Shaffer
This week Lois and James sit down with their first international guest, Jed Shaffer host of the Gamer Parents' Strategy Guide.
We had a great conversation about life as a gamer parent, how Jed got into games and of course, how to keep playing games together, even as the kids get older. We discuss why it's so important for parents to engage with their kids' hobbies in general as well as, naturally, what we love about video games as a medium.
Check out Jed's Podcast on his very handy link below:

Retro Video Game History Museum Visit
It's a bit of a different episode this week, but one thing stays the same, Lois and James will be discussing video games. This time, however, it's all about our trip to the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge, England.
We had a fantastic visit and saw (and most importantly played with) all sorts of different computers and games consoles from throughout the ages. It's described as the place parents become historians and that was so true, the 'grown ups' were able to show our kids a bit of our gaming history and they could try it out.
Everything was hands-on, so we got to challenge Lois view that all old games have fuzzy graphics and are hard to play. We also get into a kids view on how us parents plan days out with the kids and what nostalgia means.
It was a fun episode, let us know what you think.
