Richard is back in the hosting seat this week, flanked by Alexander, JC, Dave, and Jess. Dave checks in with his Splinter Cell: Blacklist impressions, then it's all strategy, all the time time, with thoughts on the SimCity beta, Skulls of the Shogun, and Fire Emblem: Awakening.
In news, Alexander, Ludwig, Jordan, and Jess do their best to pronounce game executives' names correctly. On tap this week: GTA V's fall release date, the return of the politics of game violence, Fuse's new release window, EA calling it quits on Medal of Honor, and more.
Be sure to catch the games segment recorded live on YouTube every Thursday. This week's edition can be seen on the Joystiq YouTube page, and after the break.
