The lights are on
Anthony Burch of Gearbox, lead writer of Borderlands 2, joins the podcast this week. We also talk NHL 13, Mark of the Ninja, Double Dragon Neon, and Joe Danger 2.
Burch, who first earned Internet fame writing for Destructoid and the hilarious "Hey Ash Whatcha Playin?" web series, is now the lead writer for Gearbox's highly anticipated Borderlands 2. Host Matt Helgeson and our Borderlands 2 cover story writer Jeff Marchiafava interview Burch about his career, approach to writing, hopes for Borderlands 2, and future DLC. In the second segment, Matt Bertz and the newest member of GI's Jock Squad, Kim Wallace, check in to talk about NHL 13. The latest in EA's long-running series is polarizing, impressing and frustrating our resident puckheads in equal measure. Finally, Bryan Vore, Matt Miller, and Ben Reeves chat with Matt (who threatens to strangle Ben later) about Mark of the Ninja, Double Dragon Neon, and Joe Danger 2: The Movie.

Strangle Ben?! A GI show with Ben always promises to be interesting :)
Woo! Another GI show with lotsa good games to listen about. ^_^
Good show as usual. Kim needs to get on replay at some time.
hmm I was expecting a wii U segment this week and borderlands next week, you're a sneaky dog helgeson!
Nice to know about this. This answer 2 out of my 6 questions... Thanks!
Great hearing the lead writer of Borderlands 2, that's what I am aspiring to be (not for Gearbox, but just writing for games in general).
Also, lol at the awkward switch between talking about his youtube videos and then Matt asking him about the game XD.
I've never heard of that hey ash thing.
Wow, my head exploded upon hearing that the Hey Ash writer is the BL2 writer. Also, I LOVED the dialogue for the Mechromancer.
