This week on the show, we talk about Free to Play video games! Surprising to some, free to play video games such as League of Legends and Clash of Clans just to name a couple, make billions of dollars in revenue each year, and some even hold gigantic tournaments that are shown internationally. Just because it’s free to play doesn’t mean it’s lower quality, that’s for sure! Luke, Archer, Elliot and Viv discuss some of their favourites and talk about  some of the different types of free to play models. On top of that, it was GamesCom in Germany last week, so we break down all the news from the show, including new gameplay footage from some hotly anticipated games along with some fresh announcements as well! Not to be outdone, Viv brings to us her review on No Man’s Sky after spending the week exploring quite the unique galaxy. Don’t miss any of the fun! Free to PlayNo Mans Sky
