Richard, Alexander and Jordan are back in the first segment this week, and while it is technically the "news segment," you might not know it with 30 minutes of Street Fighter X Tekken talk up front. After Jordan says his piece, it really is on to the news.

Classics are being resurrected with Diablo 3 finally getting a release date, and Baldur's Gate (I and II) are coming back in enhanced editions. Battlefield 3 is finally getting some more content, XBLA achievements are getting rejiggered, and Richard talks about his thoughts on Silent Hill: Downpour.

Part 2 is another interview this week as Richard and Jordan sit down with thatgamecompany's Jenova Chen to discuss Journey, his studio, and much more.

Part 1 (1:02) - Street Fighter X Tekken review and the news
Part 2 (59:30) - Journey interview
