Vidjagame Apocalypse

Grand Theft Auto has finally become so ingrained in mainstream culture that not only did GTA V break all sales records for all media ever (probably), but it took a torture scene to raise any real controversy this time around. So naturally, we've jumped on the lurid bandwagon with our top 5 disturbingly interactive torture scenes, more GTA chatter, a po-faced discussion about sexism in games by four straight white males, and your favorite GTA or GTA-alike missions.

It's all about one specific big release this week, as we begin with a celebration of GTA clones and then dive into a lengthy discussion about Grand Theft Auto V. We also talk about your favorite game tie-ins, and Tyler never gets around to talking for an hour about Papers, Please, which is only a little bit disappointing.

No Top 5 this week — just lots and lots of talk about the cool stuff we saw at PAX Prime. (Big thanks to everyone who came to our meetup at GameWorks!) We also chat about Killzone: Mercenary, Arma III and Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5, take a long look at Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, and find out which single question you'd ask your favorite video game characters.

Everyone's back from another successful PAX, and yet this week's episode was recorded just before PAX. It's not outdated — it's a time capsule! A time capsule that focuses on five games disavowed by their own creators (or the creators of whatever franchise spawned them), as well as a little Rayman and a little Killer Is Dead, plus your favorite indie games of 2013.
