GI Show – The Witness, Lego Avengers, Darkest Dungeon Interview

by Tim Turi on Jan 28, 2016 at 12:00 PM

The cogs, pistons, and steam pipes of 2016's video game releases are slowly, steadily humming to life. This week marks the release of The Witness, the latest puzzler from Jonathan Blow, creator of Braid. Reviewer Joe Juba discusses his time wandering The Witness' peaceful island while working his way through hundreds of satisfyingly tricky puzzles. Andrew Reiner also joins us to talk about Traveler's Tales' latest, Lego Marvel's Avengers. Prepare for a discussion about a ton of Marvel c-listers that the developers have crammed in here. After a rip-roarin' email segment Ben Hanson and Dan Tack sit down with Red Hook Studio, part of the team behind Darkest Dungeon, to discuss the nitty and gritty of their brutal Lovecraftian dungeon crawler.
