The lights are on
This week saw the launch of what will likely be the year's best-selling, and one of its best reviewed, games: Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V. We talk about this huge experience on this week's show.
GTA V has been a long time coming, and it's largely lived up to the hype, earning strong reviews and raking in $800 million dollars in its first 24 hours on sale. Host Matt Helgeson welcomes reviewer Matt Bertz and Jeff Cork to the podcast booth to talk about the game's ambitious heists, three-protagonist structure, and revamped gameplay. It's a big segment on a big game.
In the second segment, GI news editor Mike Futter calls in from New Jersey to talk about the appointment of a new Electronic Arts CEO, Andrew Wilson. Many were surprised (Mike included) at his nomination for the job, and we speculate on what this means for EA as a whole.
