The first ‘proper’ podcast of 2017 features our future (now past) selves’ first impressions of Nintendo Switch, recorded directly *does Iwata hand gesture* from the exclusive media hands-on event at the Hammersmith Apollo. If that’s not reason enough to listen, we’ve also got details of our upcoming live show on the 25th of February (Tickets available soon), our conflicting thoughts on The Last Guardian, news of Scalebound’s unfortunate demise and we share your most anticipated games of space year 2017.

Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to 2017! Well, here we are, only 6 days into the year and you already have a lovely new podcast to listen to. But this ain’t your grandma’s ExAlPod, no sir! This week we’re doing something a little different. IT’S A TAKEOVER EPISODE! Gareth has taken the hosting seat and presents to you a potential spin off of sorts in which he’d like to teach you how to be awesome at things. This episode sees him, Dan, Simon and Ash teaching you how to be awesome at surviving the apocalypse! So, from zombies to tsunamis (mostly zombies, to be honest) pull up a broken chair, grab yourself some hot, hot food rationed tea and enjoy this week’s show!
