This week on The Game Informer Show, we break down some of the big news and fun things to see at Comic-Con 2016 before diving into games. Brian Shea joins us to talk about Gears of War 4, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and Sonic Mania. After that, we get to Javy Gwaltney and his glowing review of the hacking-puzzle game Quadrilateral Cowboy and Jeff Cork's thoughts on Double Fine's Headlander. There's also some thoughts on We Happy Few and why it might not be what you think.
The back half of the show this week continues our trek through Deus Ex: Human Revolution from Eidos Montreal. We played and discuss the middle chunk of that game, and look forward to finishing things off on August 11th's show. So join in and send your thoughts on the game to [email protected].
