Welcome to the Short Pause year-end extravaganza! Brent, Ben, and Frankie come together one last time in 2015 to discuss the latest and greatest in the industry, as well as the year that was in the world of gaming. The topics this week include:
- Kojima is Free - After a tumultuous year as an employee of Konami, Kojima is finally free from the clutches of his former employer. His first move? Resurrect Kojima Productions and announce a new partnership with Sony that will see his new company's first game launch exclusively on the PlayStation 4. The fellas discuss this huge win for Sony.
- Nintendo's Final Smash Bros. Direct - Fire Emblem's Corrin and Bayonetta are the final characters to join the Smash Bros. roster, while Cloud's moveset and Midgar-themed stage are detailed in the final Nintendo direct of 2015. Is Bayonetta really the character gamers wanted to see win the character fan vote?
- New Details on Deck13's The Surge - The Lords of the Fallen developer lifts the curtain ever so slightly on their next project. The guys detail why The Surge's sci-fi world sounds like an awesome mixture of Bioshock and Dark Souls.

With Persona 5's release date anticipated this summer, is this our best clue yet as to when Square Enix's long-in-development RPG will finally see the light of day?
