The lights are on
Buckle up, because this is a highly controversial episode of the Game Informer Show. Things kick off with one of the best military shooters on the market, EA's Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Andy Reiner, Matt Bertz, and Jeff Marchiafava join host Matt Helgeson to break down the game's explosive multiplayer and solo campaign action. Things heat up in the second segment with a freewheeling discussion of the battle between Activision and recently ousted Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella. Andy McNamara, Phil Kollar, and Adam Biessener voice their opinions on the ugly break-up, and question whether game developers really get the respect they deserve. We wrap up with a less contentious Activision title, StarCraft II. Adam and Matt Miller have been playing the beta and let us know how the legendary RTS is retooling for its massive comeback.
