The Explosive Alan Podcast
Join Dan, Ash, Gareth and Simon as they jabber through the games they're playing, tear through the week's most interesting news stories, attempt to outdo each other in weekly challenges, and invite the community to share their opinions on heavyweight gaming issues.

Another new episode? 3 weeks in a row? And all four of us are back together? We really are spoiling you, dear listeners!

Join us as we return to format and discuss everything from what shampoo we use to keep our hair lovely, to fatherly gaming advice. Damn, we really are getting old, aren't we? We've also got your news, a very silly lip reading based challenge and a debate about the recently priced Oculus Rift.

Also, as mentioned in the show, here's the link to the Doom game you can play in your browser! https://archive.org/details/msdos_romero_e1m8b

Ooh, part two, your mother too (and your daddy). Our alphabetical rundown of our pick of 2015 continues, beginning with a frank confession (sorry, CD Projekt) and ending with our top tips for 2016. Lots of great music from the games in question, too!

It's 2016, the year where everyone will finally stop yamping on about Back to the Future II, and people come to their senses and realise that hoverboards with wheels aren't hoverboards at all! But hey, before you worry about what misfortunes await you and which of the 392 superhero films coming out this year will be duffers, listen to yet another bunch of people telling you about their favourite games of 2015. The big difference with this group of people is that their opinions actually matter. So join us - that is, Dan, Simon and Gareth - as we list our personal picks in the only order that matters: alphabetical. And, as the title suggests, this is an epic two-parter, so keep an ear out next week for the second half, where we'll also tell you what we're looking forward to in the year ahead.
