After technological challenges and corporate delays, the gang is back! This week Will Watson, perhaps better known on Game Informer Online as The Destroyer, joins the crew for a discussion regarding movie adaptations of video games. Can good movies be made out of video games? What sorts of challenges stand in the way of a quality video game movie? Why haven't we seen a massively successful video game franchise hit the big screen? We take on these big questions and try to give you some answers.

Music this week is a great remix that makes use of one of the more popular songs on The Wind Waker soundtrack. 'Her Smile in Every Summer' by Hot Freaks is a great little indie rock piece that you'll be sure to love. More great music like this can be found over on OCRemix.org (FOR FREE).

This week, the gang spends a good chunk of the show discussing lighthearted topics like sudden infant death syndrome, constitutional amendments and the NSA. Ok that doesn't sound light hearted, but it was a laugh-fest compared to the monstrous debate that populates most of this episode. Our passionate discussion about the closure of 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.

Continuing their discussion from part one, Jack, Daniel, and Jeremy debate what game should be their GOTY pick for 2013. Harsh words are exchanged and irritation levels meet unexpected highs. Basically it is almost an hour of barely coherent ramblings about why other people's opinions are wrong (AKA the best debate of all time). Enjoy!

After listing off their individual lists of the best games from the past eight years, Jack, Jeremy, and Daniel get down to brass tacks and hash out a single list. Words are said, tempers flare, but eventually a list is formed. What will be The JIM Show's official top ten games of the generation?
