GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 95: Clearing out the Backlog

This week we attempt to scratch the mountain that is the GameCritics.com backlog by getting to some of those titles that we've always wanted to play, but never made the time for.

In the wake of Microsoft's unpopular and ultimately reversed turn towards invasive DRM and daily activation requirements, there has been a renewed discussion of the economic challenges of AAA development and the supposed danger that used games posed to the industry. The standard excuse that it's too great a challenge to create games that achieve players' graphical expectations while still selling enough games to be economically viable in the context of a console exclusive has been trotted out, and as usual it is false, or at least lacking in perspective.
