14 for 2014: Game On, New Doctor Time

Are you one of the lucky geeks who got a next-gen console off Santa this Xmas? Of course I’m jealous, but then again the game line-up so far has been underwhelming even if the very idea of a PS4 makes my mouth fill with saliva.

Thankfully, gamers have a lot to look forward to this year whether your hardware is upgraded or not. Highlights abound and, for shame-faced PS3/Xbox 360 owners like myself, some of the more exciting titles are available on the old kit.

Sure, PS4’s ‘The Evil Within’ looks like good scary fun, but the console crossover likes of ‘Watch Dogs’ (‘Remember Me’ done right?), rad reboot ‘Thief’ and epic-in-waiting ‘Destiny’, from the makers of ‘Halo’/’COD’, lead the way in an exciting fashion. Meanwhile, crowd-funded point-and-click adventure puzzler ‘Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey’ is set to be a favourite of old-school fans and PC gamers nonplussed next-gen advancements.

As for the next thing on my list, I don’t think much needs to be said. Forget your annual GP visit, this year it’s all about one Doctor and his name is Malcolm Fucking Tucker. I feel Saturday nights are about to get unpredictable…

Doctor That Guy

The riddle is solved, the mystery of the 12th Doctor’s identity has been revealed, and we now know that the result of Matt Smith doing that weird regenerating thing will be… MALCOLM FRICKIN’ TUCKER!

Uh-oh. Put the children to bed, new Doc’s got a potty mouth. Yup, Peter Capaldi is the one and he’s bound to be getting into the thick of it (I’m sorry) with his trusty sonic screwdriver.

Getting excited about that Christmas spesh yet??
