Pay no attention to the fact that this episode came out well after 2014. We had to make room for our epic live streamed Twitch Game of the Year show! (Check it out on Youtube!) But now we are back with all the news and all of the (admittedly few) games of December. We chat Geoff Keighley's Game Awards show, the 20th Anniversary Playstation Experience conference, Bienemy's love affair with Guilty Gear Xrd, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Drake Lover" Finneman, Chris "Arkham Knight" Robinson, Ronald "Ky Kiske" Bienemy, Andy "New Order" Niemann, and introducing Dolly "Majora's Mask" Pop as they break down the month for you!
