Rebekah, Brendan and Haydn discuss some of the biggest games industry headlines from the past week.

The biggest topic of the week is THQ Nordic's ill-advised decision to conduct an AMA on controversial forum 8chan, known for harbouring hate speech and previously blacklisted for hosting child pornography.

We discuss the implications for THQ Nordic, debate how well the company responded to criticism over this session, and take a wider look at the industry's relationship with the darker aspects of the internet community.

This is followed by our thoughts on the reveal of Pokémon Sword and Shield, the next core instalments in the hugely popular RPG series. Once we've chosen our starters, we discuss whether the initial reveal has lived up to expectations and how well it might perform on Switch when it arrives in late 2019.

As always, you can get the latest news, insight and analysis into the world behind video games at www.gamesindustry.biz.
