Welcome to the new, but pretty damn familiar GameCritics.com podcast with brand new co-host Sinan Kubba of Joystiq—yes, co-host—more details inside… Join Sinan and regular ruffians Mike Bracken, Richard Naik, Chi Kong Lui, and Brad "The Guy You Know" Gallaway as they summarize GDC and PAX East in two seconds, explore the depth of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, sink to the depths of Aliens: Colonial Marines, and fathom how the growing prevalence of broken-at-launch games is hurting the industry. All this and more in a GameCritics.com podcast episode that will rewrite history, woo-oo.

I wish I could thumbs up your comment, Zolbrod. Comparing Monster Hunter combat to Skyrim…I was stunned. :p

Matt — I need to find someone to make these bracelets posthaste. I think the world would be a better and angrier place if people would regularly look at their wrist and ask themselves “what would Mike Bracken do in a situation like this?”

Looking forward to the new format! I know everyone’s busy, but I second the wish for slightly more frequent podcasts now that you’ve got two people sharing hosting duties. Hopefully a solid bi-weekly deal is possible?

Add me to the list of those looking forward to the new era! I was sad to see Dylan go, but Sinaan did really well for his first time as the official Gamecritics podcast host! Looking forward to more. I have two questions however: 1. On average, I think we’ve had a podcast every three weeks. Now that there are two shows, will there be both a Richard and a Sinaan -hosted show coming out at this pace, or will they follow the old “schedule” and just take turns, so to speak? 2. Will Brad already admit that he’s giving… Read more »
