Sorry we are late this week, but we've had our hands full... of METAL GEAR SOLID V. So, this week, here's another hour of review time, this time focused on the Forward Operating Base mechanic, along with other major multi-player-focused elements of this magnificent title. Back next week with a HUMONGOUS announcement!

This week, we do our annual book-keeping and hit you with the show's stats for the previous year. Useful for describing the overall breadth and reach of the show, it also (frequently) subtly highlights (in the inverse) the sheer number of titles that never get mentioned on the show. See you all after AVN. Cheers!

THIS WEEK: after struggling to explain the conditions that face us over the next several weeks (with exceptional ineptitude, even by my standards), we spend basically the rest of the episode explaining to you why Hello Games should have put "No Man's Sky" on 50% sale a lot sooner than now (don't let it stop you from picking it up, though). We also offer tasty previews of the Steam Winter Sale coming soon ("Katamary Damacy REROLLED," "Insurgency: Sandstorm," "Gujiuan 3," "Dark Souls 3," etc.) and wish you all a very happy holidays and a happy new year to you and yours in case we don't speak again till 2019. Cheers!

This week: we talk about how much it sucks when rapacious game companies try to foist bullshit rehashes at exhorbitant prices upon us without respecting our role in the consumer-supplier pipeline AND... for your holiday cheer, we review not one, BUT TWO heartwarming "Wolfenstein" games ("Wolfenstein: The Old Blood" and "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus"). All this and more! Happy and safe holidays to everyone!

This is the mammoth episode you have been waiting for: we extoll the unbelievable virtues of signing up for the humblebundle.com monthly subscription service, update you on Soulcalibur VI (and Boldi's atrocious dominance of us therein), tease you with Wolfenstein franchise nazi-murdering marathon insanity, talk a little Dlive.com (a twitch streaming competitor), and tell you how to get "DiRT 4" and "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain" for mere pennies on the dollar. All this and MOAR! Happy Chanukkah and holidays and stuff!
