    This week Andrea and Steimer record in the new studio together while Britt enjoys a rum punch on a beach somewhere. But seriously: the new Xbox was unveiled at The Game Awards! We recap that story and all the others from the big night including a new Hellblade, the first PS5 game, and that Fast & Furious racer that's not...a racer? Plus they chat Pokemon, Riot Games, and more. In hands-on Steimer got drunk with the devil in Afterparty and has been spending more time with Pokemon Shield. Andrea tried out Darksiders Genesis on Google Stadia and dipped her toes in the Need for Speed Heat waters.

Customer Reviews

Akhil4 ,

Love it so far

These ladies are very funny and each episode is packed with so much information. I’m hooked to the show. Keep up the great work ladies!

PureBlueOctopus ,

These three are the best!

Had to create an itunes account for the first time in my life, figured that I would give these three awesome ladies a review!

They have tons of experience, passion, humor and caring for their audience. They also bring much needed alternative voices into videogames news. Sure they get off the rails from time to time, but they always cover the biggest news and have great opinions.

Keep up the good work!

BatSplatMan ,

They know games !

The ladies seem cool as hell and really know gaming. Can’t always agree with opinions on games but that’s what gaming culture is. Were never gonna agree on everything. But I dig the show. Keep up the good work !
