Topic Of The Show:
This past weekend's DC FanDome virtual event showcased several trailers in the DC Comics video game universe. First, WB Montreal debuted a new story trailer for Gotham Knights that showed Penguin warning Nightwing of a secret society called The Court of Owls that runs the city of Gotham in secrecy. Next, the fan-loved game studio Rocksteady revealed a trailer for their upcoming game, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League. For this week's Topic Of The Show, the Game Informer crew discusses all of these announcements and shares what they want from these upcoming superhero games.
The Halloween season is in full effect so Marcus shares his House of Ashes review impressions and talks about why the game is more of an action thriller than it is a horror game. Stadnik and Wesley discuss how it feels to finally be playing Sora in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Van Aken is loving Tetris Effect Connected on his new Nintendo Switch OLED model. That screen is shiny!
This week's awesome crop of listener questions asks us about basic game mechanics we never knew existed in our favorite games, whether Death's Door could win Game Of The Year at this year's Game Awards, and which characters we would choose to win the video game version of Squid Game.
