Jin Sakia's adventures through Tsushima are interesting tales of loss and war, and subsequently were a lot of fun to break down now that we've beat the game.</p> <p>Join Matt Miller, the game's reviewer, Joe Juba, and me&nbsp;as we breakdown the highs and lows of Sucker Punch Studio's epic samurai adventure.</p> <p>As always, I need to emphasize that we <span>SPOIL</span> everything about this game including the end boss fight, the ally missions, and the fates of all the characters you know and love. If you haven't beat Ghost of Tsushima yet, I highly recommend you do, bookmark this page, and come back when you're ready as we'd love to hear what everyone thought about the game!</p> <p>If you enjoyed the video and want more&nbsp;coverage of Ghost of Tsushima, be sure to check our&nbsp;<a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/2020/07/16/things-i-wish-i-had-known-before-starting-ghost-of-tsushima" target="_blank">spoiler-free tips</a>,&nbsp;the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/review/ghost-of-tsushima/ghost-of-tsushima-review-a-most-honorable-epic" target="_blank">written review</a>, and&nbsp;<a href="https://youtu.be/nof3MBycrog" target="_blank">the video review</a>!</p> Wed, 29 Jul 2020 09:48:00 CDT Alex Stadnik 110682 New Gameplay Today – Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout https://www.gameinformer.com/video-feature/new-gameplay-today/2020/07/28/new-gameplay-today-fall-guys-ultimate-knockout <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/prod-media.gameinformer.com/styles/body_default/s3/2020/07/28/23a32244/ngt_template_new.jpg" width="800" height="450" alt="" typeof="Image" class="image-style-body-default" /> <p></p><a target='_blank' href='https://www.gameinformer.com/video-feature/new-gameplay-today/2020/07/28/new-gameplay-today-fall-guys-ultimate-knockout'>Click here to watch embedded media</a><p></p> <p>Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is refreshingly simple. As you play through several rounds of simple, Mario Party-style minigames, don't lose. Every round, more players are cut from the initial wave of 60 players, ultimately leading to a sole guy being named the winner. In today's NGT, Dan, Alex, and I talk about what makes Mediatonic's upcoming title special.</p> <p>Don't expect too much brain-busting action; the whole point of Fall Guys is that it's easy to suss out what's going on. The trick is to leap, grab, and maneuver your way to victory, amid a cluster of like-minded competitors.</p> <p>If you like what you see, you don't have long to wait. Fall Guys is coming to PS4 and PC on August 4. Better still, it's part of the PlayStation Plus program, so you'll be able to download it at no cost in August if you're a subscriber.</p> Tue, 28 Jul 2020 15:55:00 CDT Jeff Cork 110680 Replay — The Witcher: Enhanced Edition https://www.gameinformer.com/replay/replay/2020/07/24/replay-the-witcher-enhanced-edition <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/prod-media.gameinformer.com/styles/body_default/s3/2020/07/24/17cf4bee/replay_witcher1.jpg" width="800" height="450" alt="" typeof="Image" class="image-style-body-default" /> <p></p><a target='_blank' href='https://www.gameinformer.com/replay/replay/2020/07/24/replay-the-witcher-enhanced-edition'>Click to watch embedded media</a><p></p> <p>After the success of The Witcher 3 and subsequent Netflix series, Geralt and company have become&nbsp;icons of the industry.

That means in part that it's a direct sequel to Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, which released about 22 years ago. Those other games that came after may or may not have happened. At any rate, in today's NGT, Alex plays through three levels of the game while Reiner and I <s>judge his every mistake</s> offer our unyielding support and encouragement.</p> <p>The three-level demo shows two stages, with one of them being remixed to show a parallel adventure starring Doctor Neo Cortex. If you thought Alex had complete mastery over Crash's moveset, wait'll you get a load of his Cortex&nbsp;gameplay. We kid, we kid.

The big hook this time around is that you're able to recruit just about anyone you spot on the streets of London to the DedSec cause. Once they're part of the team, they'll use their own special abilities to help crash the system that's been oppressing the populace. I was able to spend a few hours playing it recently, and Leo and I go over some of the footage in today's NGT.</p> <p>Leo has been looking forward to this one for a while now, and he has a lot of great questions as well as some observations on what's changed since its E3 2019 reveal. For my part, I hack a bunch of cars, recruit some people, and blow stealth opportunities with some comically telegraphed melee attacks. We had so much to show that we made two whole episodes!

Well, Genndy Tartakovsky's stylish cartoon hero is coming back, this time in an all-new adventure called Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time. In this episode of NGT, Matt Miller shares his thoughts on the title with me and Leo based on his recent hands-on demo.</p> <p>Even if you aren't familiar with the show, which was a Cartoon Network staple back in the early 2000s, the combo-heavy gameplay is pretty self-explanatory. Just know that there's probably a canonical reason why he keeps losing the top part of his outfit, and that he's really good at using a sword, bow, and a host of other weapons.</p> <p>Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this year.</p> Tue, 30 Jun 2020 08:15:00 CDT Jeff Cork 110367 Replay — Resident Evil 6 https://www.gameinformer.com/replay/replay/2020/06/26/replay-resident-evil-6 <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/prod-media.gameinformer.com/styles/body_default/s3/2020/06/26/a9fd1cf6/replay_template_new.jpg" width="800" height="450" alt="" typeof="Image" class="image-style-body-default" /> <p></p><a target='_blank' href='https://www.gameinformer.com/replay/replay/2020/06/26/replay-resident-evil-6'>Click to watch embedded media</a><p></p> <p>Resident Evil is one of gaming's seminal franchises that's seen numerous variations over its 24-year history.

Find out as we break down the game's story and discuss why Ellie's tale has Joe Juba, Andrew Reiner, Andy McNamara, and me emotionally exhausted, yet utterly spellbound.</p> <p>I cannot emphasize enough that we <span>spoil</span> almost every single major story beat from The Last of Us Part II while also showing said footage from our time playing the game.
