GI Show – Mario Odyssey, Assassin's Creed Origins, Destiny 2 PC, Wolfenstein II
Welcome back to The Game Informer Show podcast! In this week's episode, guest host Andy McNamara along with Suriel Vasquez breaks down the biggest releases of the biggest week in games this year. First, Andrew Reiner joins the duo to talk Super Mario Odyssey and why it's the best Mario game since Galaxy. Then, Matt Miller debates with Suriel about Assassin's Creed Origins, Dan Tack weighs in on the minor launch issues and major launch joys of Destiny 2 on PC, and Javy Gwaltney talks about everything that makes Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus stand among his favorite games of all times. Finally we have some great community emails, including the thrilling conclusion to the Game Informer GOTY bracket battle. Pay special attention to the claps in the video version this week, because I don't think we got a single one right and I was laughing hysterically putting them together. Ben Hanson will be back next week, we promise.
