Splatoon 2
Crash Bandicoot: The N Sane Trilogy
Metroid: Samus Returns
Yakuza Kiwami
Sonic Mania
Injustice 2
Tekken 7
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
Danganronpa V3
Fire Emblem Heroes
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
Ghost Recon Wildlands
Thimbleweed Park
Life Is Strange: Before the Storm
A Hat In Time
Hand of Fate 2
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions
Pokémon Ultra Sun/Moon
Dragon Quest XI

OK, wow, there were way too many games this year…

And I haven’t even mentioned my personal GOTY,

KNACK 2

Regarding Battle Chef Brigade:
Do you have a crush on Thrash yet?

I think Divinity Original Sin 2 deserves a shout-out, it’s a damn good old-school RPG that rewards experimenting, it’s amazing how many ways you can complete a quest(even killing the quest-giver won’t necessarily lock you out of it), though I get why nobody on PQ played it-it’s a REALLY long game that requires quite a sizable time investment.

Speaking of long games i’m surprised Jim didn’t talk at all about Xenoblade 2 this episode.

You guys really dropped the ball on this one by forgetting to mention the song “I want to marry a lighthouse keeper” … c’mon it was in the original run of the Maxx cartoon and Clockwork Orange.

With one exception none of the games on the Podquisition folk’s top favourite lists appeal to me personally as they just aren’t my sort of games (which are RPGs, strats and (specifically humorous) adventure games). The exception is Torment, which would feature in my own top list of the year. That said, my own top list would more have to be “games I’ve PLAYED for the first time this year” rather than “new this year,” since a lot of my stuff comes from Steam sales (or what was new was expansions for Paradox grand strats!) I will say, as Gav… Read more »

Cuphead is one of those games that prove having zealous fans doesn’t work in the game’s favor. I don’t think I’ll ever play it simply because I can’t disassociate it from the awful people that made their little tent village around it.
Unfair to the game, yes, but I can’t help it.

So I went to True-achievements to see how many people finished Heavy Armor and holy crap Jim was actually right, LESS then 100 tracked gamers finished that game, and I was one of them. It’s definitely a frustrating game for sure, it does a poor job of explaining what you need to do a lot of the time(if it wasn’t for Youtube and gamefaqs I never would’ve finished it). I know exactly what level Laura was talking about, and that’s the one level where the game royally screwed up the most in hinting at what you need to do, I… Read more »

When I think of Lighthouses and music, I always think of the band.

Gonna try and work backwards from the podcast with the points in my head here; – PDP singled out our beloved lady fam, Laura in a callout video?? Pew…you squeaky little SHIT, you are in no bloody position to criticise others for their gaming style. Go back to entertaining prepubescent tit-nibblers and leave the adults in this industry alone to do the actual constructive work. – Lawbreakers has an average of about 40 players theses days. – Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is definitely my fave also. Chloe is way more charming than Nathan. (And she exclaims “bollocks” just… perfectly, something… Read more »

Although Horizon was fun enough I’ve never understood why people are so enamoured with it. I found Aloy to be a boring character that interesting things happened to rather than being interesting herself, mainly because the devs clearly couldn’t decided whether they wanted to go the Mass Effect route of the player choosing the character’s responses or having a fully written, scripted character and so the character is just caught in the bland limbo in between. The side characters like Sylens and Nil were far more interesting because they actually had personalities beyond determination. As for the gameplay, it got… Read more »
