    LEGO Batman 2. I don't know why I chose it that first day of the new year. But I did. It was easy to play while hungover.

  • SunniDee - January 6, 2014 7:16 p.m.

    My first game I played of the new year was The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD because nothing is better than talking selfies as Link.
  • TurkeyOnRye - January 6, 2014 5 p.m.

    First game of 2014? Deadpool... a Christmas gift from my wife because it was in my Gamefly queue and because she has no idea what she is actually buying me. Needless to say, I can only play it when she or my 4 year old daughter are not around. Mediocre gameplay but HILARIOUS.
  • GenderBender_9000 - January 6, 2014 12:05 p.m.

    Well needless to say, after hearing that story at the beginning I imediatly googled it. And was not disappointed.

    Welcome to the club

    first game i played in 2014 was the last of us new game plus. After making my goal to pass the last of us on 2013, i spent most of my new years eve finishing the last 4 hours of the last of us wile drinking a nice bottle of Stone Arrogant bastard ale i managed to beat the last of us around 9 pm new years eve. what a amazing way to send off 2013 and beginning 2014 for me!

    The first game I played of 2014 was Assassin's Creed 3. After finally finishing Ass Creed Rev and hearing all the awesome things about Ass Creed 4 I figured I would give it a go even though I haven't heard many great things about it and its protagonist. At first I couldn't figure out why people were so annoyed with Connor he did not seem to bad. As the game progressed he got more and more annoying. Seriously fuck Connor and his whining.

    Without even listenting yet, Tom handled this one didnt he? I can tell because the podcast didnt appear in number order but rather at the goddamn top. and this happened before with 56. Either way cant wait to listen to it later.
  • GR_TomMagrino - January 6, 2014 3:08 p.m.

    I don't know what I did :(
  • shawksta - January 6, 2014 4:47 p.m.

    Well its always been like this: RadioRadar_### You made it like this: RadioRadar ### Basically you didnt add the underscore between the number and RadioRadar, and because of that, the episode number appears on top instead of on order :P There's nothing with that, but i just pointed it out since i save all the podcasts on my phone and it appears as such.
  • TheShinx317 - January 5, 2014 8:48 p.m.

    The first game I played this year was Assassin's Creed 4. Definitely better than 3, although I'm a little let down because I bought the WiiU version because I was told it had better graphics than the Xbox 360 version, but there is no DLC coming to Nintendo's console. :(
  • punishment - January 5, 2014 5:11 p.m.

    Sonic and Sega Allstars Racing Transformed. Really rolls off the tongue huh?
  • TanookiMan - January 5, 2014 4:38 p.m.

    The first game I played in 2014 was Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate. A little sad I know but when your mother-in-law gives you a game for Christmas, you play it and tell her you love it
  • GamesRadarCollanderCooper - January 5, 2014 3:34 p.m.

    I played "just the tip" with my tired girlfriend
  • EAC73 - January 5, 2014 12:32 p.m.

    I think you might have been thinking about Maxis Games where they were developing The Sims 2, and a server fire led to a loss of data. The first game I played in 2014 was Dota 2, where everyone in the chat was nice and wished everybody a happy new year while playing. To me it was a triumph for humans, where there was not a single person who wanted to argue while playing.
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - January 5, 2014 2:31 p.m.

    Truly a rare event
  • Sinosaur - January 5, 2014 8:41 a.m.

    The first game I played in 2014 wasn't a video game. New Year's Eve, my friends and I started playing (annual tradition) a table top RPG one shot, this year was Miami Danger Force (using a simple system called Fate Accelerated). We were a group of play by their own rules special law enforcement operatives chosen to battle the rising drug crime in Miami by President Ronald Reagan himself. Explosions, car chases, fist fights outside crowded clubs, ninja stars, seductive dance numbers, dramatic flashbacks to murdered partners, speed boat chases in convenient canals, secret Soviet plots to take over America. I spent the entire night spouting cheesy one-liners and went hoarse shouting "Mendoza."

    First video game I played in 2014 was Kingdoms of Amalur.
