ShackCast Episode 8: Warhawk, Jeanne D'Arc, Spore, BioShock's PC copy protection

This week, Chris Remo, Chris Faylor, and Nick Breckon discuss Warhawk on PS3, Spore, Jeanne D'Arc on PSP, Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix on Xbox Live Arcade, BioShock's copy protection on PC, and EA and Ubisoft's recently-released free full games and the ads that come along with some of them.

Plus, for some reason, we have a convoluted puzzle game discussion including such titles as Planet Puzzle League, Zuma, Tetris 2, and Spider Solitaire! We don't know why!

From now on, send comments or questions to shackcast@shacknews.com. If you have something interesting to say or ask, we'll highlight it on the next show!
