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? Featuring Sinan Kubba, Chi Kong Lui, Brad Gallaway, Richard Naik, and Anne Lee.
