In this episode, Paul and Max are joined by returning guest Stephen Heller from Surprise Attack Games and Pixels for Breakfast to talk 2015 in review. Year of the pony, Rebel Galaxy, Rocket League, Lego Dimensions, Waluigi, beards, unsung heroes, Nintendo working out how games as service works, and bits you may have missed. We shed limelight on games deserving love and your time, and pray to Jesus-Santa hoping her will grant our 2016 hopes and dreams. Thanks for your support this year folks, remember to subscribe, visit Games Laboratory and be good to each other.

In this episode, Paul, Nathan and Max talk 'splosions, liberation and open-world building in Avalanche Studios' Just Cause 3, and Defiant Development's deckbuilding tabletop RPG Hand of Fate which scratches that singleplayer boardgaming itch. We discuss the announcement of Psychonauts 2 and whether major indies like Double Fine should be playing in the crowd funding space, and answer some listener email on the topic of microtransactions in seasonal releases; are they ruining games? Ben is on holidays, so this episode contains 90% less ums.
