GI Show – 2018's Most Anticipated Games, Bye Kinect!

by Ben Hanson on Jan 11, 2018 at 06:00 PM

Welcome back to The Game Informer Show podcast! Last week we reflected on the highlights from 2017, and now it's time to look to the horizon once again and map out the gaming landscape for 2018. Ben Hanson, Kimberley Wallace, Andrew Reiner, and Suriel Vazquez each break down the five games that they're really looking forward to playing in 2018. After some great community emails, we're joined by Kyle Hilliard and Jeff Cork to talk about the final death of the Kinect and celebrate its strange, flailing life by talking about some of the peripheral's highlights.
