We've covered a lot of games after fifty episodes of this podcast (and a number of fun honorable mentions and extra mini-sodes). Since we are hitting a podcasting milestone, we figured it would be a good opportunity to look back and re-evaluate some of the games we once praised and choose one to kick out of our arbitrary, growing video game canon. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the first of our deathmatch episodes! MUAHAHAHA!

A small, independent game released on Windows PC back in 2012. It was the indiest of indies, a title developed largely by one person using RPG Maker software. Many people outside the RPG Maker development community would never hear of Star Stealing Prince, but the community itself showered it with praise and awards. Years later, Ronove's independent game stands tall among larger turn-based RPGs with gorgeous art, an engaging combat system, and a captivating, unique story. Buckle in and listen to why you should check out a largely unknown, free, indie RPG.

You can download Star Stealing Prince for free from its Wordpress site.

Outro music: Wild Arms 'Godspeed' by audio fidelity and Theophany (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02351)

With new details of the Switch released, Jeremy and Daniel take a special episode to discuss what we know about Nintendo's next console, its launch line-up, and the potential future of the device. It's not every day that a company launches a new console against two firmly entrenched competitors.

2016 was a mind-blowing year in the world of games. VR, massive Kickstarter successes and failures, games that pushed the boundaries of what games can be, 2016 had it all. Jeremy, Daniel, and Jack bring their number one game of the year along with one honorable mention apiece. What game will be remembered as one of the best games period in several years?

The second part of our holiday break focuses on answering a question that we've heard a lot over the years: How do you even start podcasting? At first glance the equipment, software, and even the recording space can all seem like insurmountable barriers to entry, but with some perseverance and tenacity, anyone can start a great show! Jack goes in solo to answer a lot of the burning questions surrounding podcasting and how to make your own.

Next week we will return with our best games of 2016 podcast, so stay tuned for us to resume our normal format.
