GI Show – Star Wars, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Alex Hutchinson Interview

by Ben Hanson on Apr 20, 2017 at 06:07 PM

Welcome back to another episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, thanks for stopping by! On this week's show, Javy Gwaltney and I debate the quality of Telltale's Marvel debut with Guardians of the Galaxy. Then RPG-expert Kimberley Wallace joins us to share early impressions of the indie RPG Cosmic Star Heroine. This week also has a bizarre glut of remasters for classic games like Full Throttle, Jeff Cork's precious Wonder Boy, The Disney Afternoon Collection, and Voodoo Vince. We're also joined by Matthew Kato to talk about our hopes and fears for Star Wars Battlefront II (check out Reiner's great preview) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. After some great community emails, we're joined by game developer Alex Hutchinson. Hutchinson was Spore's lead designer and the creative director for Assassin's Creed III and Far Cry 4 before recently leaving Ubisoft to open Typhoon Studios. We spoke about what it's like to tackle huge projects in the game industry, his thoughts on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and much more.
