The entire gang gathers to see out the year in snuffly, sneezy style. Was it a good year for PC games? Which PC games did we particularly like? Is a man with bombs for hands a man? These and many other vital questions are dealt with on this week’s show.

Also: what if Kevin Spacey was your dad, wouldn’t that be brilliant? Also also: flying smart in Elite: Dangerous, robbing old people in This War of Mine, pitting procedurally generated art against the real stuff and loads more. So many games!

We’re all off to get drunk and open presents for a few weeks. The Crate and Crowbar will return in January. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
