Come, sit with us by the pyre and talk of the games we love. See what I did there? It’s episode 120 of the MONG Podcast and one of the longest in a good while!

2014 was certainly a wild year for gaming.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both set record sales for a console’s first year on the market, reassuring gamers and “analysts” everywhere that console gaming is here to stay. Microsoft decided to release a Kinect-less Xbox One bundle after saying it would never happen. The PlayStation 4 failed to release any major blockbuster first party games during the holiday season, while the Xbox One released a hit new IP in Sunset Overdrive.
We saw the rise and fall of mobile games like Flappy Bird. Games like Titanfall, Watch Dogs, and Destiny were all finally released only to be ripped apart by gamers with too much hype. While less hyped games like Wolfenstein: The New Order, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, and The Evil Within managed to blow everyone away. We were flooded with “HD remakes” of games – some that we have wanted for a long time, and some that were just released a year ago on last generation consoles.
All of that combined to make this years Best of 2014 Awards a really fun one.

SUCKER PUNCH’S SECOND PUNCH
inFAMOUS First Light seems more like a reply to critics than a standalone title. With inFAMOUS Second Son being released a mere five months ago, Sucker Punch Productions has taken an active step in analyzing what needed improvement and tested it out with Fetch’s own mini-prequel. However, is there enough packed into the vignette to warrant the $15 entry fee? Continue reading inFAMOUS First Light Review
