The year of 2016 is officially behind us now, and for whatever else you could say about all the crazy things that happened over the year, you can definitely say that 2016 was a year in which some video games were made. In this episode, we talk about some of those games that stood out to us.
Unfortunately, partway through, Chris had to leave; apparently he has some real life friends that came over, though I remain suspicious. Just in case you were wondering why he just stops talking halfway through.

Philosophy of Moderation
The comments on most sites are a sewer of hate, because we're moderating with the wrong goals in mind.

How did this niche racing game make a gameworld so massive, and why is that a big deal?
A look at the main Borderlands games. What works, what doesn't, and where the series can go from here.
