The lights are on
The Game Informer Show discusses the last big games of the year, plus an intriguing indie release you need to know about.
In the first segment, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Matt Bertz, Dan Ryckert, and Andy Reiner to discuss Ubisoft's excellent open-world first-person shooter Far Cry 3. Matt Bertz reviewed the game, and has a lot to say about its strengths, which include a wide array of player choice, gripping storytelling, and a complex tropical ecosystem. Reiner and Dan also love the game, and we break down single-player, co-op, and multiplayer in a long segment.
Next up is something a bit different: the new indie release Little Inferno, which is out now for Wii U's eShop, PC, and Linux. Tomorrow Corporation has created a game that's simplicity belies a fairly complex narrative. It also features gameplay that's at once instantly accessible and surprisingly deep. It's definitely a game that will appeal to people who enjoyed titles like Braid, Journey, and The Unfinished Swan.

Wow, it's weird to know that Far Cry 3 only came out this week after seeing so many videos and ads for it for a while. And, I never heard of this Little Inferno until I saw the review on the site. I'll have to pick it up on Steam.
Guys, please, just do a Little Inferno test chamber. PLEASE.
I can't wait to get Far Cry 3. It sounds great.
Awesome. Thinking about trading in Assassin's Creed 3 for this.
i cant wait to get my far cry 3!
Farcry 3 is my GOTY
Another great episode.
I dig Helgeson's interest in music. Fight the power!
The first Far Cry had good AI at the time, but it has not aged well having gone back and played it.
Great show guys. I've definitley gotta check out this Little Inferno game now.
Great Podcast, I've been enjoying Far Cry 3 a lot so far. I've also been really interested in Little Inferno since reading Reiner's review of it, might have to pick that up soon. Thanks for the Game Informin!
loooved far cry 3, i thought the side mission stuff was pretty uninspired and i didn't end up going out of my way to get any outposts that weren't already in my path, nor did i do any hunting missions or races or anything, just found that stuff boring, i really wanted to get through the story missions. the characters are awesome, and YES the citra ending is the best, so awesome. also the whole psychedelic aspect of the game is really damn awesome, the game has something that could be likened to ayahuasca, the south american psychadelic brew, and the game handles the topic well.. at least finish the story guys, it's worth it
Loved all of GI's Far Cry 3 coverage. When it all comes down to it, it's just a game about a crazy man killing flightless birds with C4.
I was so against Far Cry 3 because of how little I liked Far Cry 2, but maybe once it goes on sale I'll take a spin.
yes, pet abandonment...hilarious...
Dan, that's bad and you should feel bad.
Hearing Reiner talk about Little Inferno I'm thinking, "My wife would love this game" In fact, she might end up liking it a little too much.
Matt I was wondering if you guys have changed the music at the break, I know that the music on the show has been discused before but when I checked on the songs that were posted in September the one I was interested in was not listed. It is the song that is played at the break, I have been searching for it and I have not been able to find it what so ever (even using Shazam and sound hound). If by anychance you check this I would love to know what the song is.
