GI Show - Avengers and Fall Guys Impressions, Crystal Dynamics On The Beta And Spider-Man

by Ben Reeves on Aug 06, 2020 at 11:22 AM

In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show we share our hands-on impressions on Crystal Dynamics' Avengers game (spoiler, they're not as positive as we'd like) then we talk about Fall Guys (which we are positive about). We also discuss Fornite's new cars and the Ninja Gaiden inspired The Messenger for some reason. Then Crystal Dynamics' Scot Amos and Lauryn Ash join us to talk about their work on Avengers and what the studio is doing to prep the game for launch next month. Finally, we close out the show with a fantastic round of community emails. So please join Jeff Cork, Matt Miller, Dan Tack, Alex Stadnik, and myself for another wild and ever-entertaining episode!
