GI Show – Mario Maker, More MGSV, Zelda Symphony

by Tim Turi on Sep 10, 2015 at 12:59 PM

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain isn't the newest game out this week, but it's certainly the one most of the GI crew has been seeing on the insides of their eyelids whenever we finally shut the game off at night. The office is buzzing with weird, funny, and awesome anecdotes stemming from MGSV's open-world stealth gameplay, and we spill out the lot of them on this episode. We also get into Mad Max, Super Mario Maker, chat with the producer of the Symphony of the Goddesses Zelda concert series, and more.

This week's crew is Ben Hanson, Jeff Cork, Kyle Hilliard, and Tim Turi. We do our very best to avoid MGSV spoilers on this episode, but proceed at your own risk considering folks seem to be ultra sensitive about this one. We avoid discussing pivotal story moments or anything that hasn't been revealed in the trailers. We also dive into some other notable new titles like Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time and Tearaway Unfolded, and wrap things up with Symphony of the Goddesses producer Jason Michael Paul. Fans of Zelda's incredible soundtracks should tune in to hear about the origins and philosophies behind this awesome video game music concert series.
