Mailbag: What did you get for Christmas?

Main Show:



How’s it going everybody, Adrian Simple here from and welcome to your daily gaming update for Saturday, January 4th, 2020. Saturdays are our listener interaction days, and I asked all of you, what did you get for Christmas? Here are your answers.

Shannon here said that she got a new headset, PS4 controller skin, Rocket League, and Untitled Goose Game. Well I’ve gotta say that’s a good combo of games there, because if you enjoy Rocket League it will give you hundreds of hours of gameplay, and Untitled Goose Game is just a little game that you can beat in a few hours. I enjoyed both of those tremendously.

From JustSayApple, they say that they got Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Death Stranding, and he’s already beat Death Stranding, which I was surprised by because I know that’s a pretty long game. Also quite a few people who messaged me also got Star Wars this Christmas, I imagine it’ll be a popular choice for lots of people around the world.

Long-time listener Jason here said that he got an indie tabletop RPG called The Quiet Year, which was packaged in a hand-made satchel. I looked this game up and it actually looks super interesting. It’s a game where you are trying to rebuild a community after the collapse of civilization, and it’s all about drawing maps. Basically you make various decisions over the course of the game, and then have to record it on a map, so by the end you have a visual town. Super unique, anyway.

Vaughnakoda said that they got a a brand new Nintendo Switch alongside Pokemon Shield, which I’m sure is another thing that many people got for Christmas this year, and they’re also thinking about playing Untitled Goose Game. Also a shoutout to Jenna who gave up her favourite games to play the Goose Game and had a good time with it.

I got an answer here from The Agoraphobic Gamer who said they also got Star Wars Jedi, but also they sent me a picture of a t-shirt they got of Yoda dressed as Santa Claus, and it says “A Merry Christmas, You Will Have.” It’s an awesome shirt, you can see it on my Twitter @gaming_observer.

Ok and the last answer here today comes from Zach who got some Steam gift cards, and so he got himself a collection of horror games, including Pathologic 2, The Evil Within, and A Plague Tale: Innocence. That sounds like it’ll be lots of fun!

Alright folks that’s all for this week’s question. I’ll give you the next one in a few days, and if you would like to hear my answer to the question, feel free to head over to the TGO After-Show, which you can easily enable by simply going to the Flash Briefings setting of your Alexa app, and it’ll automatically be there.

I’ll be back tomorrow talking about my games of the year, so I hope you’re excited for that. As you know I am here every Monday-Friday with the news, and tomorrow I’ll be talking about my games of the year, so that’s exciting. Anyway that’s going to be all for today, thank you very much for tuning in, and happy gaming everyone.
