GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 125: Club Nintendo and Generation 8 Year In Review

We've had over a year with the new generation of consoles, and we take a look at who is providing the best playing experience for our hard earned money. Spoiler: it's not Ubisoft. Plus we talk a little bit about the closing of Club Nintendo and revisit one of our favorite topics from yesteryear in the Games that Made Us, this time focused two of our best friends. Featuring Richard Naik, Chi Kong Lui, Brad Gallaway, Mike Suskie, and Aaron "the Iron Man."

GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 124: Review Scores and The Hook

The crew talks about the recent decision by Joystiq to ditch review scores (note: this episode was recorded BEFORE the unfortunate announcement of Joystiq's closure), plus we tackle an old question: how long should one give a game to get good, i.e. the "hook" moment?

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)

Preview: Blackguards 2 (PC)

 Daedalic Entertainment's turn-based strategy Blackguards released earlier this year to middling reviews. We reviewed the game ourselves and didn't find much to like about it, criticizing many of the features and stating that a myriad of problems push the game into the realm of mediocrity. Blackguards 2 is aiming to improve those problems while keeping the core of the gameplay untouched.
