All that and more on this week’s Free to Play Cast!

  1. For the question of the week: it was a very game-oriented xmas (or ‘happy-merry-everything’ as we call it) in the ‘Elusive’ household. Our PS2 kicked it earlier this year, so for all of us I got a new one. For the hubby, I got Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. My son got Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for his DS (he had just finished Ocarina of Time), and I recieved Horizon:Zero Dawn Complete Edition, which I’m enjoying thoroughly.
