The Game Informer Show is back and we kick this week's episode off with a discussion of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, the latest game in Ubisoft's epic, epoch-spanning action/adventure series. Host Matt Helgeson is joined by Matt Miller (who wrote our review of the game), Andy Reiner, and Joe Juba. Listen in to find out what they have to say about the game's single- and multiplayer, and how this amazing title fits into the complicated lore of Assassin's Creed. The second segment features Jeff Cork and Matthew Kato, who come by for a wide-ranging discussion about the recent troubles at Harmonix, Bizarre Creations, and LucasArts, and how the industry is going to deal with the challenges facing it in the coming years. We also touch on the decline of genres like racing and music, and speculate what the future holds (if there is a future) for those styles of games.

Features music from Velvet Davenport's new album Warmy Girls, available on Moon Glyph.
