Welcome to a new episode of Next Gen News, CraveOnline's weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Alex Keen, Joey Davidson, Mike White and myself, Erik Norris.

This week we discuss the value of multiplayer over single player. It's become a recurring trend for publishers and developers to prioritize the multiplayer component of their titles over single player, and we're not entirely happy about it (at least most of us aren't). We also throw out a few examples where single player campaigns were hurt because developers put too much focus on unnecessary multiplayer components. *Cough* BioShock 2 *Cough*
