I've never been much for official "best of" lists for any given year, but if you pinned me down and asked me what my favorite multiplayer experience was in 2014, I'd have to reply that it was had in Digit...

Playstation Vita, Death and rising from the ashes with Luc Bernard photo
Playstation Vita, Death and rising from the ashes with Luc Bernard
by Jonathan Holmes

Today on Sup Holmes, we welcome Luc Bernard back to the program. Luc was one of our original guests on the show, back when he was working on Imagination is the Only Escape and Mass Effect's sex options were still a hot topic of discussion. Luc has been through a lot since then, though lately he's been riding high in the horse with Steam titles like Desert Ashes and the free-to-play Playstation Vita exclusive Death Tales (formerly known as Reaper). 

We'll be talking to Luc about his highs, lows, our games of the year, ambitions for Playstation TV,and whatever else comes up along the way. Join us at 4pm EST and maybe something good will happen to you.

The Captain Falcon amiibo is apparently pretty hard of get a hold of right now. Through a strange series of events, I ended up with one last night. Without getting into all the details, I'll let you know that I ended up standing beside a local Pokémon champion at nearby Target store. He influenced the clerks behind the counter to look in their backroom for Captain Falcon amiibos. The clerks were sure they didn't have any in stock. The Pokémon champion was sure that they did. Somehow, he was sure.  

Guess who was right?

To be clear, I don't entirely approve of the amiibo craze. Seeing so many people spend their time and money on all these ornamental plastic statues while they ignore great Wii U games like Stealth Inc 2, Lone Survivor, 1001 Spikes, and Thomas Was Alone makes me a little blue. That said, the Captain Falcon amiibo is a charmer worth squawking about, which is why it won my personal butt of the year award.

Thanks again to the Beastie Boys.

Okay, Final Fantasy XV looks pretty damn awesome photo
Okay, Final Fantasy XV looks pretty damn awesome
by Kyle MacGregor

Jump Festa is happening today in Chiba, Japan. What does that mean for us? Well, a stunning new trailer for Final Fantasy XV for one thing. It feels good to be excited about Final Fantasy again.

The reel also gives us our first peek at Final Fantasy XV's incarnation of Cid, a recurring figure in the franchise. Actually, it's Cindy, in this case. (Or perhaps Cidney -- there seems to be some disagreement over this on account of how folks at Square Enix pronounce the name.)

She's a mechanic, of course, which fits nicely along with the road trip motif and Cids having a proclivity for engineering. Her gender is a point of distinction among characters that bear the moniker, though, as she'll be the first female Cid in the series.

Theatrhythm Dragon Quest looks, sounds AMAZING!

This is the first trailer for Theatrhythm Dragon Quest. Marvel at its majestic beauty. It's a JRPG-shaped swizzle stick here to stir up your emotions. You feel that? Yeah, that's a double shot of nostalgia clinking up against your heart like rocks in a glass. Or something. Feels good, baby.
