The lights are on
In this episode we discuss a highly anticipated reboot of one of Capcom's most treasured franchises, and talk about Disney's bold new venture in video games.
First up, Andy Reiner and Ben Hanson stop by to discuss DMC: Devil May Cry with host Matt Helgeson. It's a reboot of the DMC franchise, and the first handled by an outside developer, Heavenly Sword and Enslaved developer Ninja Theory. Reiner is a longtime fan of the series, and Ben is a Ninja Theory fan who was inspired to check out the DMC franchise for the first time, so it's an interesting mix of perspectives on the game. Note: Joe Juba, who reviewed the game for Game Informer, is traveling at the moment and was not able to participate, so sorry to his legion of "Jubaholics."
Next up, Reiner and Hanson stick around and are joined by Jeff Cork to talk about Disney Infinity. This ambitious new project aims to tie the entire Disney universe of the company's properties into an evolving ecosytem that utilized collectible figurines similar to Activision's Skylanders. However, this multi-game, multi-franchise project is a good deal more ambitious, and could well revolutionize the way that licensed games are created, sold, and marketed.

I can't wait to finally get DMC tomorrow. And, I'm a Jubaholic...
Juba, Juba, Juba, Juba, rockin' everywhere. Hoping this episode will push me over the edge on DMC. I wasn't quite sold after the demo, but I've heard mostly great things so far.
DMC rocks! Ninja Theory did the franchise a favor if you ask me..Change is good, and being willing to evolve franchises is important to me.
loved this week's episode! keep it up!
10 weeks away from the 150th show! OMG =)
Can you do a test chamber with Ben playing DmC?
I hope all the pre DMC haters are eating crow now!
To me, Disney Infinity seems like a quick cash grab.
I love Thursdays.
i'm getting really tired of seeing all the hate for DMC its a good game everyone is just afraid of change
Thought the comment section would be filled with DMC haters (just like on metacritc and youtube) Still don't understand why people hate the game. I keep hearing people complained that they simplified and degraded many aspects of the game and that it is a mockery to the orignals. Having played the game, I don't see what they mean.
I've never really played DMC, but I might have to check this one out when it's released for PC next week. Good show!
