    Axiom Verge 2, Back 4 Blood, and James McAvoy Interview | GI Show

    by Ben Reeves on Aug 12, 2021 at 03:23 PM

    In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we discuss a handful of games we've been digging recently, including Axiom Verge 2, Back 4 Blood, Eldest Souls, Dodgeball Academia, Golf Club Wasteland

    We also have an interview with actor James McAvoy who is in the upcoming indie game 12 Minutes about a man caught in a timeloop, trying to prevent the death of his wife. McAvoy talks about the recording process as well has his history playing video games – in fact, he shares one story about how he had to melt a disc copy of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, because he was staying up late playing the game instead of preparing for work. For more on 12 Minutes, be sure to read our interview with Willem Dafoe

    It's a full show, but we make time for another fantastic round of community emails. So please join John Carson (@John_Carson), Matthew Miller (@MatthewRMiller), Brian Shea (@BrianPShea), Marcus Stewart (@MarcusStewart7), Alex Van Aken (@itsVanAken), and Ben Reeves (@Benjaminreeves) for a new wild and ever-entertaining episode!
