GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 99: Question Time

With 100 percent more GameCritics.com podcast regulars than last time, the almost significant Episode 99 delves into Pokemon X/Y, Etrian Odyssey Untold, How to Survive, and Demon's Souls. Then it's question time, covering everything from favourite Final Fantasy magic systems to the issues surrounding the Barkham Origins embargo. All of this in the allegedly capable hands of Sinan Kubba, Brad Gallaway, Richard Naik, and special guest Michael "Mac" Cunningham.

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.

Rise of Venice Preview

Should I invest in expanding my warehouses, or should I increase the number of ships in my merchant fleet? Do I sell this massive pile of lumber now, or wait for a disaster to drive up prices when people need to rebuild their homes? How much would it take to bribe a city leader instead of following the official channels to establish a branch in a new city? These are the questions asked in the upcoming Rise of Venice, the next trading sim from those behind Port Royale 3.

Air Conflicts: Vietnam Preview

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. Now, we have made the time, at least for three of the games. The crew dishes on I Am Alive, Sleeping Dogs, and Heavenly Sword, and more, plus a What We've Been Playing roundtable. Featuring Sinan Kubba, Chi Kong Lui, Brad Gallaway, and Richard Naik.
