We're excited to welcome Ken Levine, the visionary creator of BioShock and the upcoming BioShock Infinite, to this week's Game Informer podcast.

We were fortunate to get the opportunity to speak with Ken about BioShock Infinite, which releases next week. Host Matt Helgeson and Joe Juba, who wrote Game Informer's cover story on BioShock Infinite, interview Ken about the game's design, plot, inspirations, and long development cycle. As always, his answers are interesting and thought-provoking.

On a slightly less high-brow note, Game Informer's Dan Ryckert stops by in the second segment to discuss his review of Gears of War: Judgment, Epic Games' latest entry in the ultra-popular third-person shooter series. While this game doesn't break much new ground, Epic did make some important changes in the game's single-player and co-op campaign as well as a the multiplayer, which includes one breathtaking new mode.
