For our first show back in the new year, we clear the deck with hours of holiday stories, reviews, and chats about games old and new we’ve been playing over the break. Sean talks about his Christmas at sea, with a mini-rant about a library on a cruise ship, while Jonathan reviews some Blu-rays he received as presents, including Twin Peaks: The Return and the new Doctor Who: Shada reconstruction. Sean talks about playing Assassin’s Creed Origins and revisiting Star Wars Jedi Knight II, while Jonathan recounts his weird tradition of playing Papers Please every Christmas, and his journey diving back into the Batman: Arkham series. We cover a few quick pieces of news, and then for our main topic review this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, “Twice Upon a Time,” the last episode written by Steven Moffat and starring Peter Capaldi. It’s the end of the wonderful era, and the start of something very exciting, and we have, as is our wont, a lot to say on the subject.
