2015 GamePunchers Game of the Year

2015 GAME OF THE YEAR IS IN THE BAG!    If you want to listen to the show look for Episode 151 in the podcast list.

Here is a list of each presenter's choices from five to number one.

Fish - Heroes of the Storm / Axiom Verge / Undertale / MGS V Phantom Pain / Soma

Jon - Star Wars Battlefront / MGS V Phantom Pain / Batman Arkham Knight / Rise of the Tomb Raider / Until Dawn

Fraser - Zombie Army Trilogy / Captain Toad Treasure Tracker / Ori and the Blind Forest / Batman AK / MGS V Phantom  Pain

Steve - Fallout 4 / Witcher 3 / Batman AK / Dying Light / Wolfenstein The Old Blood

Sooooo...., if we give reverse points (five for 1st, four for 2nd etc..), and shuffle Steve's about so Batman doesn't win, we have the following interesting results.

- Only 3 games on our lists got repeat votes. That means between us, we voted for 15! different titles.  Vive la diffĂ©rence!

As such, we leave it to you to decide who should get 3rd place.  Put your own game in there if you want.

2nd - Even with a ton of criticism and a PC mess...  BATMAN ARKHAM KNIGHT 

but it's the pod's favourite....

1ST - METAL GEAR SOLID V : THE PHANTOM PAIN

We love you Snake!  (and Hideo!)


Quick update about all these things... oh, and Halo 4 looks like its doing well

Hi all,

I know I've been incommunicado over the last few weeks, as well as not putting out any podcasts or much of anything at all really.... well, I've uploaded a couple of Doom gameplay quasi-video tests, but not much else beyond that.

I have good news.

As has been the case for two years running now, Kat's schoolwork makes poscasting somewhat impossible, and now with a babby formed, in the words of Snap! "it's gettin', it's gettin', it's gettin' kinda hectic".

All that ends on the week of November 17th. She's ready to talk about some games

At some point here I'll be recording video of my playthrough of both Doom and Doom 2 on Ultra-Violence settings on the Xbox Live Arcade version of the games (which I think we can safely say are the definitive versions of the games now). These will commence shortly after I get my hands on the video capture equipment I am presently eyeing.. all of this should start happening around the end of November.

In the meantime, wow. Halo 4 is shaping up to be a flawed masterpiece, and Assassin's Creed III is making me less and less excited about the thing the more time I spend with it. What a world!

That'll do, pig.
