GI Show – Battlefront II, Curse Of Osiris, 2017's Best Game Music

by Ben Hanson on Nov 16, 2017 at 06:00 PM

Welcome back to The Game Informer Show! We have a big, dense show for you this week and we hope you all enjoy it! On this episode, Ben Hanson, Andrew Reiner, Javy Gwaltney, and Matt Bertz dive into the mess that is Star Wars Battlefront II's microtransactions and botched progression system before breaking down the avalanche of games ported to the Nintendo Switch. Then we're joined by Matt Miller, Suriel Vazquez, and Jeff Cork to talk about Need for Speed Payback, Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris, and Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. After some great community emails and a surprise interview thrown in for good measure, Kyle Hilliard, Suriel Vazquez, and Brian Shea help us break down our three favorite game music tracks from 2017.
