This week we talk about meetings, greetings, Final Fantasy projects, BioShock Infinite DLC, and discuss Phil Fish's departure from the game industry.

Also, a big congratualations to Game Informer's own Saint for posting his 100th consecutive blog herding! Well done!

Music this week is from the excellent "Donkey Kong Country 3 'Beneath the Moonlight'" by Fishy, Harmony, some1namedjeff, and Theophany.

The title pretty much says it all. Jeremy, Daniel, and Jack have a civil, though highly conflicted, discussion of BioShock Infinite ranging from the amazing music to the sketchier elements of the plot.

The song that ends this particular episode comes from BioShock Infinite's "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" as performed by A. Habershon and C. Gabriel. 

Thank you Irrational Games for one o fthe most enjoyable and thought provoking games in a while.

The JIM Show Season 2 Episode 10

We kick off episode 10 with a tribute to Ryan Davis of the Giantbomb podcast. The void he left in people's hearts, even those he never met in person, will never be filled. As a retraction, we at the JIM show would like to note that Nintendo changed its mind in the eleventh hour and allowed Super Smash Bros. Melee to be streamed at EVO. Our criticism of their ignorance regarding HD development still stands.

The music which closes out this episode is "R U Overdrive" by AkumajoBelmont and Braincells. The music you can find on Over Clocked Remix is really phenomenal and pretty much all of the music on there is free to everyone.
