#47 Power Creep

If there's one thing the CRIT crew are not shy of it's drinking beer if there are two things they're not shy of its controversial red button hot topics! And that's exactly what episode #47 is all about. John, James and Rob sit down to wag their chins and shoot the breeze on the subject of Power Creep in Infinity the game. The question is, what with all of Corvus Belli's recent releases: Does Power Creep exist in Infinity now? For this episode, James gets to sit as Judge and Jury presiding over this healthy debate. Ever the balanced and reasonable character he is Rob will be arguing the case against Power Creep in Infinity. Being the deliberately controversial and argumentative type he is John takes on the role of Devil's advocate and will try to persuade us that the Creep is real.

#43 Knives to a Gunfight

Well, guess who's back? Back again... It's Totally CRIT with a trio of trouble in the form of Chris, John and the returning Commander of CRIT James. We start the show with our usual round of What the CRIT. Where the boys discuss what they've been up to lately. Chris informs us of his latest factional flame Aleph Operations Sub-Section and gives us a breakdown of how he's been getting along with them. John follows up with his new found love for the Tartary Army Corps and his recent trip to Wayland for their Monthly I.T.S. event. James rounds things off with his experience at Wayland including a discussion of his controversial concession and he admits he's on the bandwagon too having picked up TAK as well. Then it's on to the main event with a discussion on Close Combat in Games and Theory. We start by chatting about the basics, such as how to get into close combat and what to do once you do. Then we mull over the various special skills linked to CC and consider if there are too many. We then take a nap and come back for part two where we discuss some of the more advanced elements. Consider some of our favourite tricks and give some tips. Rage as we debate the merits of our favourite CC specialists with a potentially controversial winner!

#35 Masters

In this special episode we bring you after hours chat from last years UK Masters, held in Birmingham and run by Deathbird and a group of UK TOs and Warcors. This episode was recorded on the Saturday after the games at the venue. As a result sound quality isn't much and some people sound quiet due to proximity to the microphone. The intial plan was to release this in December as a Christmas present extra episode but unfortunately things go in the way, but hopefully better late than never. Enjoy!
