This week on the show, Luke and Archer are up in Sydney to take part in GX Australia, so Kev, Viv and Fin talk all about animal companions in video games! There’s so many to choose from, but with more recent games like Fallout 4 bringing them well into the spotlight with the likes of Dogmeat, we thought this would be a perfect time to reflect on some of our favourite companions, what they are useful for and in some cases question whether or not they are actually useful at all! Also on the show, Kev loses his mind because Pokemon Sun and Moon has been officially revealed, Luke has prepared his review of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 after trying to make the most of his green thumb and Fin gives his verdict on Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4! It’s all here for the pleasure of your ears on Critical Hit!
