Welcome to the newest episode of The Game Informer Show aka the Leocast! This week, Leo Vader takes the reins and is joined by Jeff Cork, Joe Juba, and I to chat about why the new third-person shooter Outriders had them buzzing after visiting People Can Fly's studio in Poland. After dissecting Outrider's gaming goodness, we examine the latest Anthem news out of Bioware and discuss if it can become the game we were all hoping it would with the studio going dark to create a clearer vision of the sci-fi shooter.

Welcome to 2019's last Game Informer Show! With the 2020's rapidly approaching, Leo Vader, Joe Jubba, Ben Reeves, Jeff Cork, and I took it upon ourselves to examine the Game Informer Game of the Year from each of the last 10 years and discuss whether or not we agree with the pick. Was Mass Effect 2 the best game of 2010? Why does the panel lean Red Dead Redemption 2 over God of War? Is Titanfall 2 the greatest piece of fiction ever gifted to humankind? Stay tuned until the end of the show to also see the exclusive reveal of our 2019 Game of the Year! Thanks for listening!

On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, we go around the video game world and back again. The show starts with Matt Miller and Leo Vader as we discuss our time spent in Apple Arcade. From new gems to old favorites, we put perspective on the service now that we have been using it a few months. Alex Stadnik is this week's super producer. Next,  Joe Juba, Brian Shea, Ben Reeves, and Alex Stadnik all join me to discuss the results of our competition to predict who will take home the win at The Game Awards that happened last week. Let's just say there is a lot to discuss. And victory here might make you the smartest person in the world. In the next segment, Ben Reeves, Joe Juba, and Dan Tack join me for community emails where we do the unthinkable: We rate the Mona Lisa.  Then we have the sixth and final installment of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask guests what games are defining their year. I am joined by Ben Reeves, Matt Miller, and Dan Tack as we try to get in some last-minute discussions. Check the list below for all the games we covered over the last few weeks. Find those podcasts on your favorite service! And finally, Joe Juba interviews Michel Koch, Jean-Luc Cano, and Raoul Barbet from Dontnod Entertainment. They are some of the minds behind Life is Strange 2, which recently saw its successful conclusion. Joe has a spoiler-filled chat with the team about the process of making the game, so fans who have already finished Life is Strange 2 should definitely tune in.  Thanks for listening!

On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, we do a lot of discussing. In fact, we should discuss this. The show starts with Joe Juba and Andy Reiner as we discuss the recent release of the final episode of Life is Strange 2. Bonus discussion about what we think about episodic gaming.   Next, we do something stupid. Joe Juba, Brian Shea, Ben Reeves, and Alex Stadnik all throw in a dollar to take part in a competition to predict who will take home the win at The Game Awards that happens tonight (meaning, most of you will listen to this segment already knowing what wins what, which means you can mock our absurd reasoning – and what could be more fun than that?) I'll do the math for you and tell you who won on next week's show (though I'm guessing some intrepid listener will be eager to let us know who was victorious). For part five of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask guests what games are defining their year, I am joined by Joe Juba and the fall intern class members, Alex Stadnik (@Studnik76) and Nick Straub (@Ncstraub). Also this is the moment I get a busy Leo Vader to join the show. This segment will run the rest of this year, as we bring in editors (and guests) every week to talk about games that have impacted their year in the lead-up to Game Informer's Top 50 of 2019. Next week, will be the final installment, so make sure you come back for the finale!

And all of the sudden it is December. You should give the gift of telling all your friends how much you love The Game Informer Show and sharing it with high praise on all your social media networks ... or at least that is what I think. On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, we explore a wide variety of subjects, so every segment has a surprise. The show starts with Ben Reeves, Jeff Cork, and Matt Miller as we discuss our PlayStation 25th Anniversary cover story, Darksiders Genesis, and Arise: A Simple Story. The entire show is produced by the man in the box, Alex Stadnik (someone asked for his Twitter handle too so you can find it here).  Next, we dive head first into community emails. Joined by Matt Miller, Joe Juba, and Andy Reiner for this week's discussion, which is highlighted by the theme of us becoming the "Lords of Gaming" and making proclamations as to how we would rule. Good times. For part four of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask guests what games are defining their year, I am joined by Andy Reiner and special guests from The Video Game History Foundation, Frank Cifaldi, and Kelsey Lewin. This segment will run the rest of this year, as we bring in editors (and guests) every week to talk about games that have impacted their year in the lead-up to Game Informer's Top 50 of 2019.  And finally, we chat with Alex Hutchinson, co-founder and creative director at Typhoon Studios. We talk about his history (spoiler alert: he was creative director for Assassin's Creed III and Far Cry 4 among many others) and their upcoming release Journey to the Savage Planet. Always entertaining to chat with Alex. Thanks for listening!

If you are in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving! If not...well, Happy Day. On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, we keep things simple...almost.

Then, Andrew Reiner, Brian Shea, and Matt Miller join me for part three of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask them what games are defining their year. This segment will run the rest of this year, as we bring in editors every week to talk about games that have impacted their year in the lead-up to Game Informer's Top 50 of 2019.  And finally, we chat with an old Game Informer team member, Justin Leeper. He had the opportunity to work with the legendary Hideo Kojima and did performance capture for Death Stranding. We interview him to learn about the process and what the experience was like.

On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, we do our best not to overthink things and stick to the topic. In all likelihood, we fail at these tasks. The show starts with Brian Shea and Ben Reeves as we discuss Stadia and Microsoft's recent X019 event. Leo Vader joins us throughout the entire episode as he tries his best to outdo us from his command station in the box. Andy Reiner and Ben Reeves join me to give their impressions on Shenmue III, before we start the endless chats. Speaking of... In this week's community email segment Joe Juba, Alex Stadnik, and Dan "The Jacket" Tack answer questions about what defines an independent game, talk Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order technical issues and how those will affect its chance as a Game of the Year, and finally we talk too long about a top 5 list, which you won't want to miss. (There is also some exciting news that you can spoil here.) And finally, I sit down with Kim Wallace, Brian Shea, Joe Juba, and Leo Vader to hear their thoughts on what games they think are in the running for game of the year. This segment will run the rest of the year as we bring in new editors every week to talk about games that have impacted their year in the lead-up to Game Informer's Top 50 of 2019.  Thanks for listening!

This audio file won't work for me! Maybe Gamestop fired the link or something?

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
