Dylan might be on some exotic beach somewhere, but Adam and Cliff are hard at work in the podcast mines, digging out nuggets of podcast goodness. At least I think that's how it works? There are new JoyCons available from Hori that might make your life easier in some games, the PS4 and Switch sold a lot of units & the Xbox make a lot of money, Origin Access Premiere launched and it looks like a pretty good deal and the London Spitfire wins the first season of the Overwatch League. It was a bit of a slow news week but we had some awesome questions from Vinny, JoeColeslaw, Zack Paule, Colby and Mansocks, some cheap & free games and a little bit of Troll Corner.
