GI Show – Injustice 2, Arms, Saving Gaming's History

by Ben Hanson on May 18, 2017 at 06:00 PM

Welcome back to The Game Informer Show podcast! This week, we have DC expert and fighting game fan Andrew Reiner and fighting game expert and DC fan Suriel Vazquez on to talk about what Injustice 2 gets right. After that, Kyle Hilliard talks about his recent voyage to play Nintendo games like Arms for the Switch and Ever Oasis on the New 2DS XL. We also talk about Farpoint on PlayStation VR, and Reiner explains why The Surge is an interesting take on a "sci-fi Dark Souls" formula. After some great community emails, we're joined by Frank Cifaldi to talk about the Video Game History Foundation and fighting the good fight to preserve gaming's history. We also discuss what he's doing in Game Informer's office...
