Finally, the gang is beginning to get back up to date on publishing new shows (kind of) on time! In what was going to be a normal episode, Jack, Jeremy, and Daniel throw their meticulously crafted cue cards to the wind and decide to have an impromptu roast of this ending console generation's greatest games. They all took so wildly to this idea that it ended up being two episodes long... So they made two episodes out of it! Hope you enjoy the ranting!
The music that closes out this episode is from the chiptune soundrtrack of the NES classic 1943: The Battle of Midway, which was composed by Kumi Yamaga. You can download the chiptune soundtrack in full here, but it will take a bit of finagling to get it to play in a conventional player. If you can find it elsewhere it is definitely worth listening to in full.
This week (and this time we will actually have a few days between episodes) we are giving away Mars: War Logs to someone who leaves us a comment or review on either our new iTunes page or our Game Informer blog. Want to win an interesting game? Then get commenting!

It finally happened. Grand Theft Auto V is here. However, only one of the gang has played it. Thus, the trio talks about Rockstar in general, voices opinions on the game itself, the future of the franchise, and the bombshells that Valve dropped during the week. (This episode was recorded before the announcement of the Valve controller, but fear not, it shall be talked about another time.)
The music which is used to end this week's episode is titled 'Tough It Out!' by DaMonz and Trainbeat. It was featured on the OverClocked Remix album BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume II. The album is a great tribute to those dastardly, wily, and all-around nefarious ne'er-do-wells that populate our games. You can find this song, along with tons of other great, free, video game-inspired tracks on OCRemix.org!

After a brief sojourn taken for various reasons, The JIM Show is back with this episode recorded a few weeks back. Jeremy returns to the show and the gang give their thoughts on the Xbox One's release date. How older generations of games hold up to modern games in very general terms is another topic of discussion this week, as well as the controversy surrounding the PAX Dickwolves. There is also prolonged discussion regarding scrotums. You have been warned.
