In this Game Informer podcast extra, we interview several members of the Insomniac team who helped develop Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. We speak with creative director Brian Horton, game director Cameron Christian, and art director Jason Hickey about how they worked to include the suit from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and why their combat looks so cinematic. About halfway through the interview we issue a spoiler warning so we can talk about the story and why Insomniac changed a few popular comic characters.  If you like this podcast extra and would like to see more of them in the future, drop us a line at Podcast@gameinformer.com. Enjoy the interview.

In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show we share our hands-on impressions on Crystal Dynamics' Avengers game (spoiler, they're not as positive as we'd like) then we talk about Fall Guys (which we are positive about). We also discuss Fornite's new cars and the Ninja Gaiden inspired The Messenger for some reason. Then Crystal Dynamics' Scot Amos and Lauryn Ash join us to talk about their work on Avengers and what the studio is doing to prep the game for launch next month. Finally, we close out the show with a fantastic round of community emails.

Microsoft recently showed off Halo: Infinite and a new Fable during its recent Xbox Showcase, and we're here to talk about all the highs and lows of the show. Join Jeff Cork, Joe Juba, Alex Stadnik, and myself for a slightly loopy conversation. What did we think about Obsidian's new RPG, Avowed? How do we feel about getting another State of Decay? Are we excited to see Jack Black in Psychonauts 2? You'll have to listen to the show and find out.  If you like this podcast extra and would like to see more of them in the future, drop us a line at Podcast@gameinformer.com. Enjoy the show.

If the host's negativity doesn't make you turn off after 2mins, then you did better than me.

I'm not interested in first person dogfighting... the ships look amazing and you won't be able to see them. hard pass for me. I'd prefer a new rogue squadron any day

Oh Yay! Exactly what I wanted. Matt Helgeson back, Ben Hanson in attendance, and more! I had only listened for a couple months? when Matt left, and I had been listening for a long time when Ben left, so this is really awesome. Thanks guys.

more Pokemon passes given... I don't get how professional reviewers give a game 20+ years into the series passes on technical issues. especially when they are a AAA studio and have basically unlimited money... can anyone take off nostalgia glasses and put Pokemon up against current RPGs... of Sony put out God of war with those issues everyone would have torn them apart... makes zero sense... smh
