Hey guys, welcome to another TV Tropes article. I'm your host Trope-tan and this time we are joined by Alice and Bob as well as special guest Tropey the Wonder Dog to discuss all the tropes revealed by the latest GameXplain videos. So, let's get started!

GameXplain is a YouTube channel specialized in Video Games news coverage (mostly Nintendo-related), hosted by André Segers, Derrick Bitner, and Ash Paulsen (with also Tom Arnold mostly working in the background). They are mostly known for their analysis videos of preview trailers to find hidden details and their looooooooooong discussions about various news topic.

Outside of media coverage and the aforementioned discussions and analyses, they also have several themed ongoing series:

  • "Cool Bits": A showcase of various secrets, Easter Eggs, and other Shout-Outs from classic and modern video games.
  • "Know Your Enemy": A show dedicated to showcase the various appearances and variations of classic video game Mooks.
  • "Missing in Action": A show bringing the spotlight on old video game characters and locations victim of the Chuck Cunningham Syndrome.

Since 2016, they also have started a weekly podcast called "Real Talk" on SoundCloud, where they talk about their personal week, some minor news not covered on the channel, then 3 topics asked by Patreon backers. In late 2017, they were officially joined by Jon "NomComms" Cartwright and Daan "NintenDaan" Koopman, the former hosting a new show called "Under the Super Scope" where he analyses the game design from classic games.

In mid-September 2020, Jon left the site to join Hookshot Media (consists of Nintendo Life, Push Square and Pure Xbox). In October 2020, Joey Ferris of Commonwealth Realm, Chris Carpenter and Tris Valbuena joined the site. In November 2020, Derrick, Ash, and Steve left the site to found Good Vibes Gaming, with Jon joining in February 2022 following his departure from Nintendo Life. In November 2021, Chris left Game Xplain to become a filmmaker.
