GI Show 130: Medal of Honor Warfighter, Day One Patches, Intern Spotlight

by Matt Helgeson on Oct 25, 2012 at 02:00 PM

This week we use the disappointing new Medal of Honor game as a jumping off point to discuss the industry's increasing reliance on day one patches. Also, meet our new interns!

In the first segment, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Matt Bertz (who reviewed Medal of Honor: Warfighter), Matt Miller, and PC editor Adam Biessener for a wide-ranging discussion on the use and misuse of day one patching for games. Love it or hate it, it's a reality now and moving forward, but some companies seem to take a better approach to it than others. We also break down why -- patch or no patch -- Warfighter misses the mark in many important ways.

In the second segment, Matt introduces you to our new crop of Game Informer interns: Odell Harmon, Jordan LaPorte, and Mike Mahardy. These guys have already been posting tons of news and opinion on the site, and in this podcast you can get to know them a little better.
