The gang returns after yet another long hiatus to deliver a showstopping discussion of Ubisoft’s latest apology game in The Division, plus we also marvel at the sheer Division (give me a pun award please) among our panelists regarding the most recent Zack Snyder spectacular, Batman v Superman. The BvS segment featured *heavy* spoilers and starts around 1:12. Starring Tim Spaeth, Chi Kong Lui, Brad Gallaway, Dan Weissenberger, and Gene “The Media” Park.

Cleveland native Tim Spaeth grew up in a happy household – a household with a father whose major client happened to be an Atari games distributor. This led directly to Tim's first nickname: "The kid who got Atari games before anyone else." Indeed, he knew Pac-Man and E.T. were colossal bombs weeks before the rest of the world, and the resulting celebrity brought him great pleasure.
Through the years every aspect of Tim's life has been touched by gaming. He mastered typing thanks to Space Quest, honed his poker skills on The Sierra Network, and learned to hate after a particularly traumatic game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
Today, Tim lives in Chicago with his three kids and strives to find that perfect balance between family, career, and Warcraft. He enjoys broadcasting, martial arts, rock and roll, growing and shaving his beard, singing show tunes to the homeless, and losing at Mario Kart to his lovely, talented, and amazing girlfriend.
In late 2008, Tim became the producer and host of the GameCritics.com Podcast, and he's thrilled to be bringing GameCritics' unique editorial voice to a brand new medium.

Don’t lose hope yet. Life has been crazy busy but there may be a return sooner than you think…
What is worse? Playing an Assasins Creed game or listening to your guys discussion about “you know” Batman vs Superman…. I love your guys’ show, but this wasn’t one of the best I must say. Next time, please talk about things a bit more game- or personal related, and something a bit more actual/up to date. Talking bout a movie is fine, but 45 minutes? Nooooooooooo! At least this is my idea and wish. Thanx anyway, keep it up(per)…
Personally I’d rather talk about other things then the pointless BvS. YUK. If crapping all over BvS by Bracken won’t get him back on the next podcast, then nothing will. I’ve lost all hope. Now onto “other things”: I think the high level of bias that “ everything is better with friends” shouldn’t obscure the “truer” or more accurate nature of a games content or it’s experience. If games like Destiny and the Division which are frequently repetitious, dull and grind ridden affairs that generally don’t satisfy in the gameplay department( from my play and what I’ve heard) in single… Read more »
Guys, dunno if it is just me but the ‘right to save as’ link is for an older Podcast (about Firewatch). Just letting you know.
Listening back to the BvS discussion, I find it interesting that Dan reduces every situation/complaint about BvS into a binary one like for example, everyone is either supposed to blame Superman or love him. Saying everyone should unanimously love Superman is like saying everyone in America should love Mexicans because how much they contribute to the economy, but not everyone sees it that way. The whole point of Synder’s DC Cinematic Universe is that is very morally messy, complicated and gray and that’s one of the things I find most appealing about it.
