Do you like video games? Well a lengthy movie and Eurovision song contest discussion followed up by talk about all the random games we have been playing sounds right up your alley. Join Stephen, Daniel and Ran as they for a chat about such delights as Metro Last Light and Thomas Was Alone. But that isn't all, this is probably the only podcast this week where you will also hear about Catherine, Stacking, Costume Quest, Metro 2033, F.E.A.R 2, MGS2, Dead or Alive 5, Dark Souls, Poker Night 2, Ni No Kuni, Vector, Mirrors Edge and probably some other stuff. It's full of content, and some of it is even entertaining!

It's been a while... Again. Sorry, but welcome to the new bi-weekly edition of the Critical Path Podcast. It's the perfect fit for the minimal amount of releases you could be playing right now... Yay! However we still have a packed show for you where we discuss Telltale's latest poker extravaganze, Injustice: Gods Among Us and give our opinions on the latest news (including the current state of Nintendo). We also find time to tangent with reckless abandon and mock the Vita, it wouldn't be a Critical Path Podcast without that would it?
It's been a while! Nice to see you! Sorry about that, it's been a busy time for us, but here, enjoy a two hour podcast of informative lunacy. It's got Stephen, it has Ran and it even has Daniel. Bioshock Infinite has been played, and discussed in a non-spoilerific way (but an entertaining way!) Ran even played a Vita game because apparently there are games on the Vita, the other two? Well Daniel apparently played some 3DS games and Stephen has been keeping it current with titles like SystemShock 2 and Street Fighter 4. We spent our time off wisely, clearly.
Warning! The following episode is very british. Very, very british. Overtly british. They're drinking bloody tea, for goodness' sake!
Aaaah! Now they've made me british as well! Run away, people! Save yourselves!
Still here? Fine, then "Enjoy" Stephen and Tom talk about Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Simcity (Yes, I know), and Riccitello resigning from EA. Probably some other stuff as well.
Late in the episode, Ran comes along, despite being quite ill, but even his glorious non-britishness is cowed before the enormity of Stephen and Tom's Ethnicity (such as it is).
Okay, now I'm really starting to talk funny. Damn you, Stephen!!!
It's a weird episode this week. Ran and Vinnie join a severely sleep deprived Stephen on a Conradesque journey into darkness. The trio start off with a relatively sensical discussion of the awesome new Citadel DLC for ME3 and a decent conversation about the flawed SimCity. After that... Stephen's trip to IMDB cancels out any relevant conversation and sends them on a dark journey which results in spoiling the entire plot of the film Oldboy. Sorry?
Hello, everyone! In this episode of Critical Path Podcast, we're happy. We love games, apparently, and over the last fortnight, we've played games that made us happy to be gamers.
Games like DmC ( : Devil May Cry), Persona 4: (The) Golden and Tomb Raider (2013). And we like them - we really, really like them.
So you won't hear curmudgeonli-ness from yours truly, no! You'll find people who like games.
Right now, at least.
Oh, also, it's just Stephen and Ran this time.
Note: We're trying a new level of audio compression this time, so if the quality isn't as you'd expect, tell us - we've kept the raw audio.
The PS4 was announced this week, needless to say Stephen, Ran (and occasionally Blane) have words on the subject. But that is not all, after an hour of Sony coverage and speculation prepare for an in depth discussion of the fantastic Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance starring late comer Adam Page.
This week, Stephen and Ran are bitter. Bitter as beer, which is appropriate because Stephen's now 21. Bitter as crusty old men, which is appropriate because Ran's now downright geriatric.
Anyway, we talk about Ni no Kuni and Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Be forewarned: Bitterness.
We may not have played the latest releases, but we sure have read some news! Join Stephen and Tom for a very special 30th episode full of celebration. It's a short one this week, but unfortunately it had to be so due to numerous technical issues in the recording process (which Tom apologises for)
It's been a while since a proper podcast, so Stephen and Ran break you into the new year slowly with lengthy chat about mostly irrelevant things. If you like your things relevant there is some DmC: Devil may Cry talk, some Path of Exile, Strike Suit Zero, THQ business, Duncan Jones and talk on violence in games. More importantly though, not only did Stephen find the Dark Souls DLC, he played it and wants to talk about it... Surprise surprise.
