New World And Psychonauts 2 Impressions, Plus Death's Door Review – GI Show

by Ben Reeves on Jul 22, 2021 at 01:00 PM

In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we discuss a handful of games we've been digging recently, including New World, Psychonauts 2, Death’s Door, Cris Tales, and Overboard! 

Death’s Door is the big highlight. In his review, Marcus called it "an entertaining and engrossing action-adventure romp that you’d do well to enjoy before your time is up." Cris Tales is also a delightful little surprise. This inventive RPG lets you explore a world through multiple timelines. Brian is still working on a review, but in his early impressions he said, "the game is undeniably gorgeous, possessing one of the most consistently beautiful art styles I've seen in a long time." Sadly, New World isn't clicking with us as much. Amazon Games’ MMORPG comes out August 31, but we’re exploring the beta right now and should have more impressions soon. 

It's a full show, but we make time for another fantastic round of community emails. So please join Dan Tack (@dantack), Blake Hester (@metallicaisrad), Marcus Stewart (@MarcusStewart7), Alex Stadnik (@Studnik76), Brian Shea (@BrianPShea), and Ben Reeves (@Benjaminreeves) for a new wild and ever-entertaining episode!
