GI Show – Volume, Summer's Biggest Games, Back-Of-The-Box Trivia

by Tim Turi on Aug 20, 2015 at 01:00 PM

Video games can be sneaky, in a couple ways. Sometimes they're so elusive that you're left sitting in the middle of summer without any big new titles to pop into your console. Other times, they're stealthy like Volume from the creator of Thomas Was Alone. This week we dive into that new release and catch up one another on our progress in The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, and more.

Join Ben Hanson, Ben Reeves, Brian Shea, and me as we discuss the big games we've been playing, dive into a full bag of emails, and compete in the return of Back-of-the-Box Trivia. The game is simple: try to guess the name of the game by the description on the game box. Are you better at naming games based off their oftentimes strangely worded synopses than the GI editors? Play along and see.
