In which we are filled with seasonal cheer, mince pies and snot. The whole team gathers to talk about what got their goat and their GOTY in 2013. Amazingly, no one even mentions Spelunky or Dota 2! Until they do. At length. Merry Christmas.

Also: Tom F confesses his strangely matrimonial take on XCOM squad dynamics, while Chris realises Hearthstone’s cards aren’t dicks. Plus! Remembrance of Clancy games past, predictions of the next coma-ghost phone-hacking scandal and how to attain infinite death threats.

Show notes

And with that, happy holidays! We’ll be back in January.

Our intro music is from the track Clambake by The Mandibles. Many of the band members now tour as Count Bobo And The Bullion.
