Replay, Super Replay, Video Interviews, Spoiled!, Test Chamber, the Guiness World Record attempt and so much more! All of these are the product of the creativity and hard work of Ben Hanson and the video crew at Game Informer. And we were lucky enough to have Ben on the show this week to talk about his experience working for GI, what the office environment is really like and pick our brains on some of the ideas he has for the future of GI video coverage.
Daniel also regales us with the story of his trip to Brooklyn, NY to rub elbows with the game journalism elite. Apparently he met the entire Polygon crew as well as former Indie & Mojo Show guest Harold Goldberg. Of course, we also talk about Team GIO and try to convince Ben to help us out with a live stream during the event. If you haven’t joined the team then we’ll just assume you hate children. If you don’t hate children, you might as well head over to the site and join the team!
If you’re a fan of Game Informer (which I assume you are, if you’re reading this), then you will find plenty to love in this episode. Not the least of which includes the…

This week’s music is not Carly Rae Jepsen. Sorry to everyone who wanted that to be our new theme song. Instead it’s a band called Purity Ring. Check out more about them on their website.
That’s all for this week’s show. Huge thanks to Ben for coming on the show and for always supporting and listening to us even prior to being asked on as a guest. Also thanks again to Daniel’s Mom for joining us this week to quote Bioshock.

Great show! Loved listening to Ben talking about his job and his ideas, I hope some of them come about. Also, way to leave yourself out of the logo, Jack.
This was my first time listening and I have to say I enjoyed it. Also your mom kinda had a Zelda Rubinstein thing going on.
