    GI Show - Impressions For Paper Mario: The Origami King, Iron Man VR, And Hyper Scape

    On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we start to shake things up, but never forget that we still love you. We're experiencing a bit of a lull between the releases of The Last of Us: Part II and Ghost of Tsushima, but that hasn't stopped many of us from planning a bunch of interesting games. Need proof? How about Paper Mario: The Origami King, Hyper Scape, and Mortal Shell. If none of those catch your interest, be sure to stick around for community emails. So please join me, Dan Tack, Jeff Cork, Brian Shea, and Alex Stadnik for another wild and ever-entertaining episode!

    GI Show — The End Of An Era

    GI Show — The End Of An Era

    In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, several members of the Game Informer family say, "Goodbye." Sadly, this is my last week as Game Informer's editor in chief. Coincidentally, senior editor Matthew Kato and video producer Leo Vader are also moving on to the next stage of their careers as well, and will no longer call GI home. While this is sad for many of us, we take the chance to celebrate their contributions and wish them well. 


    We continue to do this show from our homes as we hunker down in quarantine, so please forgive us for any audio or video hiccups as we deliver content outside the studio.


    Thanks for listening! Please make sure to leave feedback below, share the episode if you enjoyed it, and follow me @therealandymc, or Matthew @MattKato, and Leo @leovader to let them know how much you love them.

    GI Show — Our Extensive Impressions of Cyberpunk 2077

    On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we take our closest look yet at Cyberpunk 2077 and discuss what we thought of our time actually playing CD Projekt Red's long-awaited RPG. Later, we give our impressions of what we saw from both Pokémon Unite and Marvel's Avengers and wrap it all up with another round of community emails. So please join me, Kim Wallace, Matt Miller, Dan "The Jacket" Tack, Brian Shea, and Alex Stadnik for another wild and entertaining episode!

    GI Show — Our Reactions To Skate's Return And The Rest Of EA Play

    GI Show — Our Reactions To Skate's Return And The Rest Of EA Play

    On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we dissect the entirety of EA Play and let you know what we think of Star Wars: Squadrons, Lost in Random, and whether or not the publishing giant nailed its digital event. Later, we briefly touch upon the Cyberpunk 2077 delay, predict what we think next week's Pokémon event will reveal, and wrap the show with the return of Community Emails.


    Observant fans will note that I am in fact not Andy McNamara. Due to the EA event being past his bedtime, Andy wasn't able to make this week's episode work. Instead, I had the absolute pleasure of hosting with the help of the amazing Andrew Reiner, Matthew Kato, Ben Reeves, Joe Juba, and Jeff Cork.

    GI Show Reactions To PlayStation's Future Of Gaming Event

    GI Show Reactions To PlayStation's Future Of Gaming Event

    On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we discuss Sony's The Future of Gaming event where it revealed the PlayStation 5 hardware and showed glimpses of over 25 games, including Horizon II: Forbidden West, Deathloop, Resident Evil Village, and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. Please join me, Alex Stadnik, Jeff Cork, and Dan "The Jacket" Tack for our reactions, both good and bad.


    Since filming this podcast, Insomniac commented that Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a "standalone game," and Bethesda has since clarified the multiplayer components of Deathloop (that said, we definitely hint at all these things in our discussions).

Love the show!

Love all the perspectives shared on the show! Great at providing information and some good laughs!! Playful teasing / “criticism”: playing a drinking game where you drink every time Alex drops in a “yeah” could be hazardous to your health lol

Jerror45 ,

I am informed

I had my doubts when Andy took over the hosting duties, but this show has really taken off and now Andy strikes me as a “Conan O’Brian” style host. Good energy and one of the best places to get ,politics free, games news. Always played right away when a new show drops. Thank you GI

HWMWH ,

Here’s to 500+ more

To Andy and the gang, congratulations on the huge milestone!

In a world where variety is boundless this show made it to 500. To me, as a listener and long time fan of the show, that speaks volumes.

Why the five stars?
1. The GI Show Group always injects a good amount of humor and different viewpoints regarding a wide variety of topics that it’s my go to for weekly talk radio.

2. The quality and effort that this group puts in to the show has never waned. That’s big. Interests change. Guests stop making appearances. The list goes on and on to what could impact the production quality of a show. But GIS hasn’t stopped growing and evolving. PS you guys did a WAY better job transitioning to remote work than your neighbors *cough* IGN *cough*

3. Info and everything presented on the show is relevant. Period. The discussion topics are always the most up to date. I rarely read something that I haven’t already heard on the show.

If you like games, tech, movies, anime, superheroes, or [insert any other nerd topic I missed] this is a definite show to add to your lineup.

GIS - thank you for an amazing show.
