In which swing is swung. Marsh joins the two Toms to celebrate Game Journalist Christmas, aka the IGF. Roguelike Risk Of Rain and spy-spoof Jazzpunk are our top stocking-stuffers. Meanwhile, Graham builds up, not out, in Sim City’s £25 DLC band-aid.
Plus! Tom F returns to Quadrilateral Cowboy with |337 hacking skillz, his mind honed by Michael Brough’s perplexing offerings: 868 Hack and Corrypt. Also: why no number of buckets will save you in Theme Hospital.
Our swingin’ intro music was from the track Clambake by The Mandibles. Many of the band members now tour as Count Bobo And The Bullion. They’re awesome. Have a listen, eh?
