Tim and Richard revisit the 2010 “classic” Alpha Protocol, once they remember which game that is exactly. Plus, a spoiler-packed dismantling of the first season of Star Trek Picard, and our hopes (or lack thereof) for Strange New Worlds. For the spoiler-averse, don’t worry, we tell you when to stop listening.

Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Richard received his first console (the NES) at the age of six, and from that point on games have been an integral part of his life, whether it's been frittering summers away with the likes of Mario, Mega Man, and the Zerg or partaking in marathon sessions of Halo, Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead. After being a longtime reader of GameCritics, Richard joined the staff in March of 2009, and over the years Richard grew into the more prominent role of part-time podcast host.

In 2016, he spearheaded a complete rebuild of the GameCritics.com website, earning him the title of Chief Engineer.

His gaming interests are fairly eclectic, ranging from 2D platformers to old-school-style adventure games to RPGs to first-person shooters. So in other words, he’ll play pretty much anything.

I do not recommend Advent Rising. It was a mess even when it came out, and I have to imagine that time has not been kind to it.

Although Tallarico’s soundtrack is one of my favorites in any game. Deserved to be in something better.
