Hello and welcome to Lapsed Gamer Radio. The Pound has fallen so far it’s worth less than empty crisp packets, bands of angry racists are prowling the streets telling all the Poles to go home, and our next PM might be Boris fucking Johnson. So fuck it, let’s talk about video games.

This week, Mark and Cev are joined by two new crew members: professional gamer Stuart Cullen and prolific Youtuber Alistair ‘CornWolf’ Cornwall.

After a few weeks away from the regular news show, the gang catch up on what’s grabbed their attention in the world of games. We also run through and discuss games we have been playing recently. The games covered include: VALENTINO ROSSI THE GAME, GUILTY GEAR XRD – REVELATOR, TECHNOMANCER, OVERWATCH, HITMAN, THE WITCHER 3 – BLOOD AND WINE, SAMSUNG GEAR VR, JUST CAUSE 3, TRIALS OF THE BLOOD DRAGON, THE CREW and many others.
