Luke Mitchell

Luke Mitchell
Luke spends his time playing video games, binge-watching TV and hanging out with his German Shepherd, Ziggy and Bernese Mountain Dog Pandora.

Edie W-K

Edie W-K
If it isn't video games, Edie doesn't care about it. She's been playing games since the N64 era, and only spent enough time away from her 3DS to earn a Bachelor in Games Design from RMIT.

Elliot Attard

Elliot Attard
PC gamer, TV show binge-watcher, music lover and elite member of high society (but not really) - Elliot possesses all of the qualities needed to project his word thoughts straight into your eye holes.

Charlie Kelly

Charlie Kelly
Charlie loves her video games as much as she loves dumb, charming JRPG protagonists: probably way too much. You can often catch her spending too much time being emotional over LGBT stories in games. She also thinks Yakuza 6 is the best one.


After Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Doom Eternal launched in the last week, Edie, Luke, Charlie and Elliot dive into how they attract their respective audiences, and what other adorable and violent games we love.
