In fact, we should discuss this. The show starts with Joe Juba and Andy Reiner as we discuss the recent release of the final episode of&nbsp;<a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/review/life-is-strange-2/life-is-strange-2-review-setting-a-good-example">Life is Strange 2</a>. Bonus discussion about what we think about episodic gaming.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p> <p>Next, we do something stupid. Joe Juba, Brian Shea, Ben Reeves, and Alex Stadnik&nbsp;all throw in a dollar to&nbsp;take part in a competition to predict who will take home the win at <a href="https://thegameawards.com/">The Game Awards</a>&nbsp;that happens tonight (meaning, most of you will listen to this segment already knowing what wins what, which means you can mock our absurd reasoning –&nbsp;and what could be more fun than that?)&nbsp;I'll do the math for you and tell you who won on next week's show (though I'm guessing some intrepid listener will be eager to let us know who was victorious).</p> <p><span>For part five&nbsp;of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask guests&nbsp;what games are defining their year, I am joined by Joe Juba&nbsp;and the fall intern class&nbsp;members, Alex Stadnik (<a href="https://twitter.com/studnik76" target="_blank">@Studnik76</a>)&nbsp;and Nick Straub (<a href="https://twitter.com/Ncstraub" target="_blank">@</a></span><a href="https://twitter.com/Ncstraub" target="_blank">Ncstraub</a>)<span>. Also this is the moment I get a busy Leo Vader to join the show.&nbsp;This segment will run the rest of this&nbsp;year, as we bring in editors (and guests)&nbsp;every week to talk about games that have impacted their year in the lead-up to Game Informer's Top 50 of 2019.&nbsp;</span>Next week, will be the final installment,&nbsp;so make sure you come back for the finale!</p> <p>Thanks for listening!

The show starts with Ben Reeves, Jeff Cork, and Matt Miller&nbsp;as we discuss our <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/feature/2019/12/03/the-first-25-years">PlayStation 25th Anniversary cover story</a>, <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/review/darksiders-genesis/darksiders-genesis-review-exodus-of-excitement">Darksiders Genesis</a>, and <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/product/arise-a-simple-story">Arise: A Simple Story</a>. The entire show is produced by the man in the box, Alex Stadnik (someone asked for his Twitter handle too so you can find it <a href="https://twitter.com/Studnik76">here</a>).&nbsp;</p> <p>Next, we dive head first into&nbsp;community emails.&nbsp;Joined by Matt Miller, Joe Juba, and Andy Reiner&nbsp;for this week's discussion, which is highlighted by the theme of us becoming the "Lords of Gaming" and making proclamations as to how we would rule. Good times.</p> <p>For part four of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask guests&nbsp;what games are defining their year, I am joined by Andy Reiner and special guests from <a href="https://gamehistory.org/">The Video Game History Foundatio</a><a href="https://gamehistory.org/" target="_blank">n</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/frankcifaldi">Frank Cifaldi</a>, and <a href="https://twitter.com/kelslewin">Kelsey Lewin</a>.&nbsp;This segment will run the rest of this&nbsp;year, as we bring in editors (and guests)&nbsp;every week to talk about games that have impacted their year in the lead-up to Game Informer's Top 50 of 2019.&nbsp;</p> <p>And finally, we chat with Alex Hutchinson, co-founder and creative director at <a href="http://typhoonstudios.com/">Typhoon Studios</a>. We talk about his history (spoiler alert: he was creative director for Assassin's Creed III and Far Cry 4 among many others) and their upcoming release <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/product/journey-to-the-savage-planet">Journey to the Savage Planet</a>.

On this week's episode of <em>The Game Informer Show</em> podcast, we keep things simple...almost. The show starts with Leo Vader&nbsp;and Ben Reeves as we discuss <a href="https://www.half-life.com/en/alyx/">Half-Life: Alyx</a> and what it means for fans of Half-Life and VR. And that discussion is just the beginning.</p> <p>In this week's community email segment, I'm joined by Matt Miller, Ben Reeves, and Leo Vader as we answer your questions and generally wander off topic. Then, Andrew&nbsp;Reiner, Brian Shea, and Matt Miller join me for part three of our Game of the Year chats, where I ask them what games are defining their year.&nbsp;This segment will run the rest of this&nbsp;year, as we bring in editors every week to talk about games that have impacted their year in the lead-up to Game Informer's Top 50 of 2019.&nbsp;</p> <p>And finally, we chat with an old Game Informer team member, <a href="https://twitter.com/justinleeper_yo" target="_blank">Justin Leeper</a>. He had the opportunity to work with the legendary Hideo Kojima and did performance capture for <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/review/death-stranding/death-stranding-review-the-wanderer" target="_blank">Death Stranding</a>. We interview him to learn about the process and what the experience was like.</p> <p>Thanks for listening!

I'm the host. How's that for a surprise twist? Andrew Reiner and Brian Shea join me for an extended chat about <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/review/call-of-duty-modern-warfare/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-review-a-new-theater-of-war" target="_blank">Call of Duty: Modern Warfare</a>.
