This & That Gaming Podcast Ep 39 - The Social Network

It is time for episode 39 of the This & That Gaming Podcast and this one is a bumper episode! We have a ton of Nintendo news this time around including the recent Nintendo Direct, new Pokemon game announcements, more Switch upgrade rumours and a firmware update for the….Wii U?? Wait, what? We also have a round up from Sony’s recent ‘State of Play’, more PlayStation games coming to PC, Microsoft rolling out FPS boosts to older backwards compatible games and a ton more.

We are joined in the second half of the show by special guest Tim Gadler, aka ‘SegaMasterTim’, who fills us in about his time working as one of Sega’s ‘Game Counsellors’ here in Australia, his recent unfortunate suspension from Twitter and what his plans are going forward. We also take a look back at the absolutely amazing year that 1998 was for video games.

Thank you for tuning in and we hope you enjoy the show!
