GI Show – Ghost Recon, Mass Effect, Zelda Developer Roundtable
It's a big week for The Game Informer Show, as we try to wrap our minds around some massive new games. First up, Matt Bertz talks about playing a ton of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands alongside Andrew Reiner and Jeff Marchiafava. Then we're joined by Suriel Vazquez to talk about playing Mass Effect Andromeda with Andrew Reiner and how the game's first couple of hours are stacking up in anticipation of our upcoming GI Game Club. After that, Dan Tack talks about his Bostonian adventures and the highlights of PAX before weighing in on how the card game The Elder Scrolls Legends turned out.
After some great community emails, we get a new perspective on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild thanks to a talented group of developers. We're joined by BioShock's Ken Levine from Ghost Story Games, The Walking Dead and Firewatch's Jake Rodkin (also from Idle Thumbs and Important If True), ArenaNet's Aaron Linde, and Galak-Z's Jake Kazdal from 17-Bit to share their insight into Nintendo's monumental feat with the latest Zelda game.
