The Computer Game Show 133: The Draft 2018

It’s David’s last proper show and there’s no better way to end it than with the GOTY Draft 2018. The boys sit down to put together their list of the top 16 games of the year and they’re already trying to work out each others tactics. David continues his discovery of VR, James tries his hand at Smash Brothers, Mat's hovering around David’s chair and Sean drags out a two hour game over three weeks. Games discussed: Return of the Obra Dinn, Beat Saber, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Wipeout Omega,...


The Computer Game Show 132: Silent Sneeze

It’s a busy week this week with David finally able to join in with the PSVR chat after a bribe from James. Mat learns the consequences of rushing through games, Sean thinks that Londoners never want to travel outside of the M25 and an independent games shop has to deal with a local celebrity trying to use his status to get a discount. Games discussed: The Gardens Between, Return of the Obra Dinn, Red Dead Redemption 2, Destiny 2, Tetris Effect, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Juiced, Spider-Man,...


The Computer Game Show 131: It's Happening

Everyone's here, but Mat's got a bone to pick with David about his recent performance on another podcast. Other than that, Sean's now a professional gamer, James isn't happy with collectibles, David still has views on Tetris Effect, Mat is playing more games than everyone else, and there's a revelation about 2/3 of the way through the podcast that changes EVERYTHING. Games discussed: Spider-Man, Pokémon Let’s Go, Red Dead Redemption 2, Warframe, Destiny 2, Tetris Effect LISTEN Apple...


The Computer Game Show 130: Majestic Creature

James returns and as usual he's got a few notes on last week’s show that he’d like to discuss with the others. David's been watching a hell of a lot of FIFA 18, Sean's been doing some research on Twitter and Mat's been secretly hammering a game all week that he’s keen to talk about. It’s a long one.

The Computer Game Show 129: Three Years Plus

Sean returns this week but it’s not a full squad as James misses out due to work commitments.

Games discussed: Red Dead Redemption 2, The Quiet Man, Tetris Effect, Rage in Peace LISTEN Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts Spotify Pocket...


The Computer Game Show 128: Half-Life 3 to Play

Sean is off again this week but don't worry, it's not another Freeman show as the boys are joined by Gamespot's Global Head of News, Tamoor Hussain.

The Computer Game Show 127: Native 4K

It’s Halloween and the boys are keen to use scary noises to spook the listeners. They’ve also spent the week with a snake in their boot and announcing that someone has poisoned the water hole. As you’d expect much of this show is dedicated to Red Dead Redemption 2 but that doesn’t stop David and Sean questioning some of Mat’s statements from the week before. Meanwhile James is adjusting to time travel. Games discussed: Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fist of the North...


The Computer Game Show 126: Make Better

David’s off this week, so here it is; a little preview of how TCGS will sound in 2019 when David takes a year off to look after this second child. Oh wait. What’s that? Sean’s also not on the show because he’s suddenly unwell an hour before recording? Ah. Well that just leaves James and Mat to carry the torch and do something for the listeners. I mean sure, James would have liked nothing more than for Mat to cancel and not release a show this week, but unless we’re all dead from a freak...


The Computer Game Show 125: Blag Flag

The Computer Game Show 121: Takes to the Ocean

It’s a big one this week. Not only is it the final episode before our live show at EGX this coming Saturday, but a lot has happened since the last recording. Spider-Man’s mysterious backpacks? Solved. That Spider-Man proposal? Dealt with. The fact that Mat and James thought they were more important than David and Sean and could do whatever they liked and upload an episode of Interface on the TCGS feed and therefore disrespecting everyone associated with the show not to mention every single...
