 As gamers, we've been really busy recently. Between Batman: Arkham City, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Saints Row The Third, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations there's no shortage of gaming to get through. In fact, it might be too much. Such is the subject of this week's Soapbox. Adam wonders if the "open world" genre has changed so much that it's not really a type of game any longer and questions publishers' motives behind releasing all these content-rich games around the same time. Have you had time to finish them all?

Interview with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Composer, Brian Tyler

Activision not only deployed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 today, it also released the original soundtrack album for the game, featuring music composed by Brian Tyler.
