We are on the cusp of a flurry of next-gen reveals, but the current generation still has some big releases on the horizon, and it doesn't get much bigger than GTA. In games, Richard, Ludwig, and Dave talk Grand Theft Auto V, Soul Sacrifice for the PS Vita, Sid Meier's upcoming iOS game Ace Patrol, and Thomas Was Alone.
In news, Alexander, Jordan, and Mike Suszek successfully cover the big stories of the week, but unsuccessfully drag Jess out of her cookie-hating place of despair. On tap: Wii U's struggles, Steam Greenlight's continuing evolution, the clever anti-piracy measures of Game Dev Tycoon, 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.
