Welcome to the start of a brand new and exciting week! Get caught up on all the goings on from Brenna’s shift.

Pat and Johnny may be in Cologne this week for gamescom but the news machine rumbles on regardless. I’m filling in for the UK team, but in the meantime, get stuck into these juicy stories from Brenna’s shift, complete with her usual delightful explanatory notes. Also, be sure to catch her on the Bulletcast – she’s filling in for Pat all week.
