As you’re itching to unwrap your presents, we’ve got one wee gift you can open early, and that’s the latest episode of our fine podcast.

We start things off this week chatting a bit about Final Fantasy XV. Is it keeping the magic going in the side questing tradition? Spoilers: No. But that doesn’t necessarily make it a total letdown in that department. Tune in for more extensive thoughts on what to expect there as two fine young gentlemen chase the inevitable platinum.

After that, we close things out with our best games of 2016. Each of us have a little list of our five favorite games of the year. Will they align with one another, and more importantly, will they align with your picks? Pop on in to find out.

Music/Media:

Hellfire-Final Fantasy XV OST
Lord of Cinder-Dark Souls III OST

    Oh man , I haven’t stopped laughing listening to this podcast. First, Mike doesn’t know anything about sports. Yes, football a.k.a. soccer is very popular in Canada. And yes we have a league. Also … the entire Firewatch talk was hilarious.

    Hahah, oh man, anyone who knows me knows that I have a massive amount of trivial knowledge but I lack a lot of basic knowledge that most people would consider common sense :p As for John, the man is a continent away and knows not of the ways of his colonial children.
