    Lots of praise for Automata and it’s likely deserved. My personal top 5 games for this year would go something like this:

    5. Sonic Mania
    4. Mary Skelter Nightmares
    3. Pyre
    2.Knack 2
    1. Gravity Rush 2

    Honourable mentions to Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash, Matterfall, Warriors All-Stars, Battle Chasers Nightwar, Light Tracer, Superhot VR and Doom VFR.

    P.S. There were some weird audio issues in the podcast – a beeping noise possibly from Discord notifications.
