GI Show: Batman: Arkham Knight, E3's VR Wars, Dave Grossman

by Tim Turi on Jun 25, 2015 at 01:30 PM

On last week's GI Show we came at you from E3 2015 in Los Angeles, California. The crew covered the big talking points of the show up to that point, but there's still a lot to say about the impressive virtual reality experiences from Oculus Rift, Sony, and others. Warner Bros. Interactive's hotly anticipated Batman: Arkham Knight is also out this week and we have a good long chat about the ups and downs of being Gotham's dark hero.

Co-hosts Ben Hanson and Tim Turi are joined by Andrew Reiner, and Game Informer's editor-in-chief Andy McNamara makes his premiere on the this week's show. The rundown on Arkham Knight and Lego: Jurassic World is a lot of fun, but Andy and Reiner's enthusiastic accounts of playing with all the VR rigs E3 2015 had to offer is a must-watch. We also bring back emails after last week's hiatus (send emails to and interview adventure game savant Dave Grossman. His resume brings him back to the early LucasArts days, working on titles like The Secret of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. He also spent nine years at Telltale Games and we talk to him about his experience working on Jurassic Park: The Game and how The Walking Dead's sucess changed the studio. Stay tuned to hear him share stories of his past at the Skywalker Ranch and his current audio espionage adventure game.
