What The Heck Is This? Episode 3
We cover a lot of big, well-known games here at Game Informer. Thanks to these efforts, you (hopefully) know all about the next big franchise, or the highly-anticipated new game from that notable indie developer, but what about those random games that fly under the radar? The one among the hundreds that release every day on Steam? Or that Xbox One game with the weird title? This new video series is an attempt to highlight those games – for better or worse.
Andrew Reiner and I see these type of games all of the time. The game that we look at and say, "What the heck is that?" This is our chance to play them and decide, on the spot, if we want to keep playing them, or move on to to something different.
Today we look at two games. World to the West from the makers of Teslagrad and Shio, a game that looks to Super Meat Boy and 'Splosion Man for inspiration. Stick around to the end to hear if we want to keep going, or if it's time to move on.
During our Replay break, we will be airing new episodes on Friday's at 8 p.m., but to be clear, this show is not a replacement for Replay! Replay returns June 2 with a brand new season.
