This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is really popular on Lifeinvader.

Let's not beat around the bush here-- this one is all about Grand Theft Auto 5. Xav played it, and has plenty of thoughts on what is likely to be the biggest release of the soon-to-be-over current generation of systems. Ludwig, Richard, and Jordan are also on-hand to discuss some of the finer details of Rockstar's latest.

This is not a spoiler show, but spending an hour and a half on the game means there is a fair amount of information about various parts of the experience here. If you want to go in completely clean, come back to this one when you are ready. Clear? Cool.
