We are back to the regular format for a couple of weeks before the E3 2013 explosion. This week in games, Richard, Dave, and Jordan convene to talk Insomniac's break onto the multiplatform scene with Fuse. Also on-tap, 2D roguelike survival horror game Darkwood, Grid 2, and this week's XBLA release, CastleStorm.
In news, Alexander, Jess, and Sinan kick things off with Nintendo's Best Buy E3 plans. In other news, GameStop stock prices are suffering over the Xbox One used games controversy, Sony confirmed that PS4 games will support remote play on PS Vita, Double Fine has launched another Kickstarter, the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games discussion continues, 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.
