Sinan Kubba is joined by the full house of Brad Gallaway, Chi Kong Lui, Mike Bracken, and Richard "Ouya" Naik to celebrate a historic fixture in the history of the GameCritics.com podcast: The grand return of the Horror Geek. Oh, and 100 episodes of a podcast that's been like a pair of tattooed knuckles, offering both love and hate for all things gaming.. Yes, one knuckle's been slightly bigger than the other.

GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 98: Big Red Potion Reunion

Sinan Kubba, joined by just one GameCritic in the form of Brad Gallway, takes the opportunity to have a Big Red Potion reunion by bringing his former co-host Joe DeLia and Eurogamer's Jeffrey Matulef onto the show. The quartet take a dazzlingly irreverent (and temporally irrelevant) dash through the games they've been playing, covering The Last of Us, Saints Row IV, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Ico, Wordament, Asura's Wrath, and The Wolf Among Us.
