GI Show 102: Mass Effect 3, SSX, Street Fighter X Tekken

by Matt Helgeson on Mar 08, 2012 at 01:00 PM

It's been Mass Effect 3 week around the Game Informer offices, and our podcast follows suit. Host Matt Helgeson is joined by Joe Juba, Matt Miller, and reviewer Andy Reiner for a lengthy discussion of BioWare's Mass Effect 3. What follows is a (mostly) spoiler-free discussion of the game's incredible depth, dramatic storytelling, and surprising co-op multiplayer. Next up was a game we neglect last week because of our Naughty Dog special edition podcast -- EA's reboot of the SSX franchise. Longtime SSX fans Phil Kollar and Kyle Hilliard have mixed feelings about the game, and break down its strengths and weaknesses in an interesting segment. Finally, reviewer Jeff Cork and GI's resident fighting game expert Jason Oestreicher have an enthusiastic discussion about Street Fighter X Tekken.
