This week on Checkpoint, the team talk about the cost of video games. We all know that the video game industry is one of the largest industries in the world, but with so many games coming out every year and new consoles releasing every few years, it can be quite the expensive venture trying to keep up with the latest trends. Join Luke, Archer, Jakob and newcomer Elliot as they discuss how much they spend each year on gaming, and talk about some of the challenges of having such an expensive hobby. Also on the show, we talk THQ Nordic, No Man’s Sky’s launch and a new piece of technology that allows you to smell farts. Yes, really. It’s all here on another fun episode of your favourite gaming show! The Cost of Gaming
