Jake hails from Bendigo where his console of choice is the PS4, closely followed by the Nintendo 3DS. Anime and volunteering tend to keep him occupied, though his staffy/ rotty/ husky cross named Iris keeps him busy first and foremost.

Fin is into RPGs, strategy and anything online and competitive. When he's not gaming you'll find him catching up on the latest streams, TV shows and sleep


This week on the show, Archer is running things while Luke is away! Jakob and Fin join him to discuss all things episodic gaming. Over the last few years in particular this trend of a genre has picked up, largely due to the huge success of the Telltale games, including The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, The Wolf Among Us and more. These games focus on story and character based choices rather than heavy hitting action gameplay. The boys discuss their favourites and what they like about the format. Also on the show, Fin has been loving his time with Blizzard’s new crazy multiplayer release Overwatch while Jakob has been getting his strategy RPGing back in fine form with the newly released in Australia,Fire Emblem Fates. Don’t miss any of the fun!
