It works!) and generally just kill time until we’re allowed to leave for the holiday break. See you in 2017!

  • I thought you have a new shorter email address. Is this already the new short one?

  • Yay one last podcast for the year! Happy Holidays Blogcast crew and everyone else!

  • Disappointed at no mention of Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir in any of the PS Blog game of the year voting categories.

  • “everybody seems to love Overwatch” who is this everybody? have you seen the like/dislike ration on the “The Game Awards, GOTY Award” video on the official TGA youtube channel?

    i don’t love it, in fact i hate it

  • Can’t wait to listen, guys! It’s been a really fun year. So many great games with so many on the horizon! Happy Holidays to you all!

  • Thanks for all of these great podcasts this year. Plus, look at the amount of optimizations to the PLAYSTATION DOT BLOG that were made!

    Better audio? Simpler email address? linking to your region’s blog? I feel like at this rate in 6 months my expectations will be to yell “DOT BLOG COMMENCE!” in my house and have crisp lossless audio of Sid, Ryan, and Justin start flowing through my home delivering me some news and off-the-rails goodness (which I for one – welcome).

    But seriously, thanks for all the hard work you guys do and I hope your holiday breaks are filled with friends, family, food, drinks, and games!!

  • Re: Happy Holidays discussion.
    I will never understand people who get upset over this and think it’s somehow “too PC.” In addition to it making sense in any mass market, it would make sense even just to Christians. You start saying it before Thanksgiving, say it through Christmas, and stop after New Years. There are THREE freaking Christian holidays in there. Why does no one get this? In Canada we also have Remembrance Day and Americans have Veterans Day. We don’t say “Merry Christmas” because for most of the time people are saying this, it’s some holiday that isn’t Christmas. I’m in Newfoundland and it’s the 23rd, so right now I’m enjoying some whiskey for Tibbs Eve. Happy Tibbs Eve and Happy Holidays!

  • How can you guys talk about your most anticipated games and not mention the word Persona and the number 5 in quick succession?

    Or the words Final, Fantasy, and XV for that matter for this year’s games.

  • I know you guys kept joking about the movie and TV talk, however I really feel people had a problem with it that week because you were talking about PSX. And a lot of people didnt get to attend so they wanted to hear about it. Usually I have no problem with the tangents and movie/TV talk but in this case I got annoyed because I wanted to hear more about what everyone thought of PSX. PSX is arguably the biggest event for Playstation fans, and your podcast is for Playstation fans, hence people were probablly hoping for focused PSX talk.

    Anywho… thanks for what you do. I do enjoy the podcasts and I liked game of the year talk. Looking forward to a new year. Maybe you should try adding a fourth voice in to the fold now that Nick is gone. I always enjoy new perspectives.
