This and That Gaming Ep 15 - Chart Toppers!

We are back for episode 15 of the This & That Gaming Podcast and it’s our final episode for 2019! We have our usual news roundup including Sony’s Dual Shock 4 add-on, all of the announcements from The Game Awards, the Australian government’s decision to review the current classification system and more.  

As we move towards a new decade of gaming, we decided that it is only fitting for us to list our top ten favourite games from the past decade, our honourable mentions and some of the games that didn’t quite hit the mark. Of course, we also sound off on some of our favourite games for 2019!

We sincerely thank you for all for listening and we will see you back here in 2020!
