Talking games, Richard is back in the hosting seat this week, and things kick off with Runner 2. Then it's on to a couple of bigger releases with Ludwig and Alexander discussing Tomb Raider and SimCity.
In news, Alexander, Jess, and Mike Schramm hit this week's gaming debacle, the disastrous launch of SimCity. The crew also covers the reveal of Thief, Incredipede making it onto Steam, and the current state of former THQ series.
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.
