Dapper is away this week, however this means you’ll get to watch Nick’s last bits of professionalism disappear as he is joined by award winning games journalist and podcaster Kate Grey!

The two of them discuss a wide range of topics from the PS4 Pro to The Great British Bake Off and Kickstarter to Fallout 4.
