May 2018 - Spider-Man


We played Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man, and we know its release date. The May issue of Game Informer is loaded with new details about the wall crawler's highly anticipated return to video games. Our hands-on impressions reveal what you can expect from the open world – the missions, side activities, collectibles, and more. We also dive deep into the web-swinging controls, combat complexity, and surprisingly deep upgrade paths, which include suit crafting.

March 2018 - Metro Exodus


After two successful games sets in the post-apocalyptic Moscow underground, the Metro series is ready for its moment in the sun. Ever since we watched the impressive debut footage at Microsoft's last E3 press conference, we were eager to learn more about Artyom's journey through the irradiated Russian countryside and how developer 4A Games hopes to pair the traditional, linear Metro experience with some of the sandbox sensibilities of its progenitor – S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. This past month, we journeyed to 4A Games' headquarters on the gorgeous Mediterranean island of Malta to find these answers and more.

February 2018 - God of War


God of War has been among the most anticipated PS4 games ever since it was unveiled at Sony’s E3 2016 presentation (complete with a live orchestra). Since the big reveal, fans have been hungry for more details about the game’s mechanics, including specifics about combat. However, Sony’s Santa Monica Studio was guarding that information closely – until now.
