Joe and Malcolm kick off the new year the only way they know how: by arguing about the best games from the year prior. Before things really get going for next week's Game of the Year tournament, though, they have to determine which fringe game will earn the final spot on the bracket.

Talking points: Joe's adventures in drinking and commemorative consoles, hackers put coal in PlayStation Network's stocking, Sony sells The Interview to everyone but their own customers, January's PlayStation Plus freebies, an unsurprising character reveal for Mortal Kombat X, PlayStation Now comes to Samsung Smart TVs, Limbo is probably coming to PS4, Planetside 2 finally shows its face on PS4, Assassin's Creed Unity is a broke-ass game, the perils of going digital, determining the 16th entrant to next week's Game of the Year tournament.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
