The lights are on
Another week, another Game Informer Show, and this one is jam packed with some heated discussion. First off is Splinter Cell: Conviction, with Andy Reiner and Ben Reeves dropping by to give some more insights into the game, which looks like a rebirth of one of Ubisoft's flagship franchises. In the second segment, Dan Ryckert reports back from a recent Konami press event, where he saw a new Castlevania title in action as well as some under-the-radar gems. Finally, Matthew Kato, Bryan Vore, and Phil Kollar join host Matt Helgeson to delve further into the sordid Infinity Ward/Activision breakup, the mass exodus of development talent from Infinity Ward, and the newly formed Respawn Entertaiment. We speculate on what this messy incident means for the future of Call of Duty, Activision, and how it could benefit the industry's other giant publisher, Electronic Arts.
NOTE: The Game Informer Show usually goes live on Thursday night. Last night we were having some technical issues with the media server. We apologize for the delay.
