There is a lot of change coming to GiN in the New Year, and our editor is taking a few moments away from his eggnog binge to chat about some wonderful GiN friends who are moving on, and our big plans for the future. Oh, and Happy Holidays to you all!
We all want to get and play the latest and greatest hits in gaming this holiday, but don’t overlook the possibility of snagging some great titles that are either still being actively developed, or perhaps a little older, and as such are being offered for some amazing holiday prices. This week is all about trying to game on the cheap!
It’s a strong month for new games and while Drew has been caught between a whole bunch of them, here are the twohe’s lost most of his time to this week – the perspective-bending philosophical puzzler Superliminal, and a new entry in a little-known series of monster-catching simulators.
Ever wished you could find the perfect game to give to a non-gaming friend to show them why you love the artform so much?

Either way, Drew is here with an exhaustive list of three whole options that just might be what you’re looking for.
Bethesda have announced a subscription service for the Fallout game that you probably thought was as abandoned as the wasteland it depicts. Does Drew think the subscription is worth the asking price? Well, judging by the article title, obviously not.
John Wick Hex may or may not be a triumph of game mechanics, but it’s certainly a triumph of acting. This week Drew discusses the differences between screen acting and videogame voice-over, and shows us how it can all go wrong.
This week, with a smorgasbord of excellent Switch releases available for perusal, Drew opts to play and talk about the most current, bleeding-edge Switch games, and provides useful and timely reviews for all of them. Really. No lying.
This official communique from a researcher employed by the Federal Bureau of Control is strictly for the recipient’s eyes only. Do not read this letter unless you are Cedric’s mum. Failure to comply may result in severe consequences, such as the universe turning inside-out.
Continuing with the theme of temporal mechanics, this week Drew somehow manages to travel both forwards and backwards in time at the same time, reminisces about some future releases, and laments the passing of the upcoming long-ago.
