GI Show – Hands-on Impressions Of Xbox Series X Console And Baldur's Gate III

by Ben Reeves on Oct 08, 2020 at 03:46 PM

In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we discuss a handful of the games we've been playing recently, including: Baldur's Gate III, Genshin Impact, Star Wars: Squadrons, Watch Dogs: Legion, Pikmin 3 Deluxe, and not Hades. Next, we got our hands on a new Xbox Series X retail unit, so we share our thoughts on the new console, its controller, and how the new "suspend" feature works. Finally, we close the show with another fantastic round of community emails. So please join Dan Tack, Liana Ruppert, Jeff Cork, Brian Shea, Alex Stadnik, and myself for another wild and ever-entertaining episode!
