Oh man, actual current-ish events on this week’s episode! In an unprecedented move, Sony has pulled The Interview, and the guys are here to express t general disappointment. (Some devil’s advocacy aside.) But there are still games, too! Justin finally, finally digs into LittleBigPlanet 3, Kaz takes an invisible boat to Storm Island in Forza Horizon 2, Neil keeps coming back to Destiny, and Tom emerges from his sarcophagus for more Game of Thrones talk. Plus, GotY considerations, Xeodrifter and 80 Days.
The holidays come early this year, as both The Game Awards and PlayStation Experience feature a ton of announcements and trailers. Kaz, Tom, Mike and Justin weigh in on Zelda, No Man’s Sky, Yakuza 5‘s surprise localization and more. They also explore the current amiibo frenzy and the overwhelming cuteness of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
