The lights are on
This week's Game Informer podcast is something a little different: our first Back Cover Blurb Trivia Challenge game show! Our resident video auteur Ben Hanson came up with idea and takes the reins from host Matt Helgeson to referee this raucous contest. Here's how it works: Ben selected a random assortment of games from the GI Vault, took pictures of the back covers with his iPhone, and then reads off the back cover blurb (censoring out any proper names or references to the title). Contestants Matt Helgeson, Kyle Hilliard, Dan Ryckert, and Tim Turi then buzz in and try to guess the name of the game. It's something different for the show, so please let us know if you like it in the comments below.
The next two segments are a bit more traditional, give or take the contributions of Ben Reeves. In segment two, Andy Reiner and Ben stop by to discuss the Apple console rumors with Matt, followed by a one-on-one session with Dan Ryckert, who gives you the inside details on the XBLA hit Trials Evolution.
