Mike (@MikeSuskie) and Dan (@gc_danny) have a lot to say about Resident Evil 7, and it's almost universally positive. Join them for an in-depth discussion, and then join them again after the final musical break for some spoiler talk. In between, they get giddy over killing Nazis and talk some smack about Paul Anderson (the bad one).

The first episode of the rebranded, relaunched, retooled, and rebooted GameCritics media effort. Richard Naik and Tim Spaeth discuss the reasons behind the switch, and also discuss the Nintendo Switch and the art of segue. For the second half of the show (starting around the one hour mark) Dan Weissenberger and our good friend Steven Brown run down the Playstation VR launch effort and attempt to not look silly in VR gear.

Another two-man affair as grizzled multiplayer veteran Richard Naik talks with Brad Gallaway about Overwatch, the game that finally made him question his stance on hating fun of all kinds. Also a few words about the GameCritics impostor, who is still pretending to be us in an attempt to get free download codes from publishers.
