[News] The end begins as GAME files for administration - once again, GameBurst's thoughts go out to everyone affected. In lighter news, Sony officially announces LittleBigKarting and Disney lifts the lid on Epic Mickey 2 - a video game musical.

[Top Five] In the second of our special Top Five shows, we discuss our favourite bad games. Or at least games that The Press has deemed to be bad. The only rule was to choose titles that have a rating of less than 75 on score aggregator Metacritic. Do you agree with our choices? Think we've missed something out? Let us know: pod@gameburst.co.uk.

[News] There's more trouble for GAME as the struggling retailer announces it is for sale. Hope was found in several offers, but little progress has been seen. Rumours persist that Bethesda will create an Elder Scrolls MMO and that Sega will hit the HD button for Shenmue. Obsidian reveals it lost out on a bonus because of one Metacritic point, and the Giant Bomb crew return to GameSpot as CBS Interactive buys the independent games site. Plus, Diablo III's release date and that Achievement-erasing glitch.

[Roundtable] The GameBurst crew discuss the implications and context of moral decisions in video games. What information do we feel we need before we're presented with Mass Effect's crucial choices? How does the world of Fallout affect our in-game behaviour? How much do we expect the game to depict the consequences of our actions? And how do we want to see this narrative and design technique used in future?
