  • Happy holidays!

  • Driveclub was an amazing Forza killer.

    April fawls!

  • And to you as well, Ryan! Happy holidays to you, your team, and all my fellow PS brothers and sisters out there!

  • Happy Holidays Blogcast dudes!

  • Have a very Playstation Merry Christmas Blog!

  • It was Kelis’ delicious milkshshake that brought all the boys, not Kesha!

  • Oops, I corrected you guys too soon. I underestimated Ryan’s amazing research abilities, I guess.

  • What’s so bad about naming Smash and Bayonetta 2?

  • @Justin I never made it to the yard personally, but it’s only because I’m really lazy, socially awkward and I prefer DQ Blizzards anyway! She was hot though, and I would more than likely show up at the yard if I had it to do again.

  • Just wanted to let you guys know, that a lot of compatible PS1 classics for PS Vita don’t transfer over PS3.
    Strider 2 and Suikoden 2 to give some examples.

  • Tales of Hearts R easily the best Vita game this year. I think I like it better than Persona 4G. Yes, it’s that good!

  • So glad to hear so much love for Rogue Legacy!! A game so good it threatened to ruin my marriage from the get-go, as it released the day that my honeymoon started. Happy holidays to the Blogcast crew!

  • Have a very Playstation Merry Christmas Blog! Love u guys :S

  • I think the only four games I played this year are:
    south park
    diablo
    mordor
    DAI
    so those.

    Sid:
    agree with soul reaver (first in-game tutorial, no?) and while it would be on my list as well for the best boss battles ever that game has the WORST ENDING EVER. seriously that ‘to be continued’ was a punch to the groin, perhaps a more solid punch than it otherwise would be since the rest of the game was so amazing. alas, endings are hard. you need a list of good endings (prince of persia, ICO, SotC, uncharted 2, etc)

  • This was my first year and I had a great time listening to you guys. I love how the talk derails to movies, tv shows and so on and you are all pretty awesome.
    I guess my favorite games this year were:
    Transistor
    TLoU Remastered
    GTA V Remastered
    Dust: An Elysian Tail
    Shadow of Mordor (though that ending really pissed me off)

    Happy Holidays!!

  • Hey guys. Happy Holidays.

  • Ah yes, another blogcast to satisfy my Saturday boredom until SNL comes on.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you and your loved ones! Thanks again for being awesome. ;)

  • Btw, Shadow of Mordor gets my GotY vote. Nothing else this year came close to the sheer innovation and creativity of the Nemesis System.

  • EDF! EDF! EDF! Hard to believe the best game of the year was a PS3 game, but it really was worth waiting the entire generation for. Mordor is the only true next-gen game, the rest only feature next-gen graphics but the gameplay has not evolved.

  • I want another PSX next year!!!!

  • Does Sony want to know if PS Plus subscribers want the Driveclub PS Plus Edition?

  • It wouldn’t be Christmas without PES 2015 going on sale for week 4 PSN Holiday Sale. Please mod’s if you are listening, put Pro Evolution Soccer on sale! Happy Holidays :)

  • That Simpsons line is from the Poochie Episode not the Gabbo Episode :P

  • I want another Playstatin experience the next year, but the players and the videogame industri want games, more games.
    Rescue old games, crash bandicoot is an icon for PlayStation. The PlayStation need rescue old sagas .

    syphon filter, the brillant alundra, crash bandicoot, wild arms, medievil, the legen of dragoon, crash team racing, parrapa the raper,wipeout, arc the lad and jak and daxter, this yes is for the players. the gamers want this sagas for ps4 and psvita. is undeniable.

  • YES, YES, YES, YES. Please — make PSX an annual event!!

  • Yes, please hold a PSX next year! Although, it might be better to hold it BEFORE Thanksgiving rather than after.

  • I Voted On All Polls :) Hope Miku & Sega Wins.

  • sad no one threw outlast in there anywhere, mega creepy and just a really different and fun game, plus the story between the main game and the dlc really was awesome.
