This week, the gang spends a good chunk of the show discussing lighthearted topics like sudden infant death syndrome, constitutional amendments and the NSA. Okay, that doesn't sound lighthearted, but it was a laugh-fest compared to the monstrous debate that populates most of this episode. Our passionate discussion about the massive layoffs at BioShock Infinite developer Irrational Games turns into a larger debate on society and corporate politics. This is possibly the most heated debate in JIM Show history, so buckle up. It's quite a ride.

For a more articulate and less flabbergasted account of Jack's thoughts regarding Irrational's downsizing, head over to Extra Life. Also, bear in mind that this was all recorded before the insightful Polygon article went live, so some of our speculations ended up being quite off the mark.

Music this week is the awesome metal Punch-Out!! remix  'Little Mac's Confession' by Game Over. More great music like this can be found over on (FOR FREE). Head over there and check out a place flowing with musical talent!

This week we are giving away a Steam copy of Brutal Legend to someone who leaves us a comment or review on either our iTunes page or our Game Informer blog. Want to win a word game of imagination and wonder? Then get commenting! Also, for you slowpokes out there, If you haven't claimed your game (i.e. added it to your Steam library) within a month or two, it will be given to someone else.
