Game On Australia (AUS)

Pete and Dan are just a couple of lads who love to game.. after the nappies have been changed. The guys keep you up to date with the latest in gaming news and reviews, along with a few tips thrown in on how to juggle a love of gaming with being a *good dad*, ("Good dad" is subject to the interpretation of our wives, particularly if they try and get the kids to play 'Call of Duty').


Ep 88 - Does This Even Count?!

Well you wouldn't bloody read about it! So after not being here last week because he had a new baby arrive (excuses...), Pete the bloody bugger ended up in hospital this week crook as a dog! He's on the mend but the podcast isn't, so instead we thought we might pull one out of the archives from when the lads were just a few months into doing this.

We've got a lot of people who have joined the journey since then so here's your chance to hear how far Game On AUS has come!

It's Episode 18 - Rumble Paks and throw backs, and it originally aired on the 20th of June 2017:
