GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 121: The Return of the King

He's back in the host chair, and Felipe's right beside him. For one night only (well, hopefully not), Tim Spaeth steps in at the last minute to take the reins. It's old-school episode all round, with Mike Bracken, Brad Gallaway and Chi Kong Lui making it an "OG panel." And, last but not least, Anne Lee returns to tell us more about the future (well, Japan)
