Why Everyone Is Obsessed With Baldur's Gate 3 | GI Show

by Alex Van Aken on Aug 17, 2023 at 08:00 PM

In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, Alex Van Aken returns from a mysterious work trip to France to explain to Kyle and Marcus why everyone is obsessed with Baldur's Gate 3, Larian Studios' new computer role-playing game that continues to top the Steam charts. Later in the show, we discuss: Atlas Fallen, Deck13's action RPG that empowers players with sand-based abilities; Vampire survivors co-op on Switch; and why Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem competes with Barbie and Oppenheimer as one of the best movies of 2023. 

Before all of that, however, Marcus dives into his recent visit to Universal Studios's Minion Land and his sampling of the park's The Last Of Us-themed menu featuring a delicious pasta dish titled "Left Behind Ravioli."
