GI Show – "Metroid", Metal Gear Survive, Interns' Favorite Games

by Ben Hanson on Aug 18, 2016 at 01:00 PM

This week on The Game Informer Show, we tackle the reaction to internet over-reactions head on. It's a fun show this week as host Ben Hanson is joined by Kyle Hilliard, Brian Shea, and Dan Tack. We debate the merits of a spin-off experiences with Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Elder Scrolls Legends, Metal Gear Survive, and Final Fantasy XV's movie Kingsglaive. We know that's a lot of ground to cover, but we also throw in our impressions of Bound, 8-Bit Horde, and Grow Up. On top of that, Dan Tack has a bone to pick with No Man's Sky. After some great Emails from the community, in the back half of the show we say goodbye to our wonderful batch of interns by talking about Leo Vader, AJ Moser, Haley MacLean, and Blake Hester's favorite games this year and of all time.
