Hosted by Gamer’s Edition Editor Mike Plant, with regular guests Jack Turner, Andy Laughlin and Luke Wakeham. In this week’s show, we chat about all the games we’ve been playing over the Christmas break, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Red Dead Redemption 2, Dead Cells and Call of the Cthulhu.

As we take stock of the week’s news, we debate whether the PS4’s latest sales figures mean it’s on route to toppling the best-selling console ever, Sony’s PS2. Then we survive to tell the story of Alien: Blackout’s reveal trailer, as Amanda Ripley returns (albeit to mobile devices).

In our regular “On The Record” segment, we take a look back at some of the key records of last year. Including 2018’s most critically acclaimed game; the most achieved Platinum trophy for a game released in 2018; and the most popular Twitch channel of 2018 (no prizes for guessing it belongs to Ninja).

And, as ever, we close out the show with our “Boss Fight” games quiz. This time based on the games and franchises that will be celebrating a milestone anniversary in 2019.
