GI Show – Volume, Summer’s Biggest Games, Back-Of-The-Box Trivia

Video games can be sneaky, in a couple ways. Sometimes they're so elusive that you're left sitting in the middle of summer without any big new titles to pop into your console. Other times, they're stealthy like Volume from the creator of Thomas Was Alone. This week we dive into that new release and catch up one another on our progress in The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, and more.

Join Ben Hanson, Ben Reeves, Brian Shea, and me as we discuss the big games we've been playing, dive into a full bag of emails, and compete in the return of Back-of-the-Box Trivia. The game is simple: try to guess the name of the game by the description on the game box. Are you better at naming games based off their oftentimes strangely worded synopses than the GI editors? Play along and see.

Watch Episode Two Of Rockstar Editor-Made Alien Game Show Extreme Extermination Challenge

Last month, we shared with you one of the wackiest Rockstar Editor creations we’ve seen. Extreme Extermination Challenge stars two aliens, Glorp and The Narp Narp, scoring points by humiliating (or murdering) innocent humans.

The duo return in episode two today, bringing with them vehicles, unsuspecting pedestrians, and toilet humor. Be honest, Glorp’s pre-game ritual isn’t much different than your own.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

In round three, the “roaches” (that’s what EXC creator Lee Iovino calls humans) fight back. We’re looking forward to sharing that with you once it’s available.

Let us know who you’re cheering for. Are you in Glorp’s corner, or is The Narp Narp your man… er… alien?

Summer Games Done Quick Speedrunners Show Us How To Rip Through Gunstar Heroes

Summer Games Done Quick starts tomorrow, and ahead of the event, we brought in some runners to showcase their skill, explain the event, and give us some tips.

If you're unfamiliar, Games Done Quick is an annual marathon where speed runners gather in a single location, speedrun an impressive library of games at impressive speeds, stream the whole thing, and do it all in the name of raising money for charities Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. The stream starts tomorrow, July 26 and goes until August 1, and you can watch it here.

This year, the event is happening in Game Informer's backyard, Minneapolis, Minnesota, so we invited runners to come in and play a few games. You can check out Gunstar Heroes below with our own Benjamin Reeves and Tim Turi, and Games Done Quick's Tony Ogbot and Chris Grant.

Games Done Quick Speedrunners Show Us How To Complete Crystal’s Pony Tales In 10 Minutes

Continuing today's series of speedrun videos ahead of the kick-off of tomorrow's Summer Games Done Quick event, we asked speedrunner Seckswrecks to beat the Genesis classic, Crystal's Pony Tales.

Long time Replay fans will be familiar with Crystal's Pony Tales – it was our 47th episode of Replay, meaning it appeared fairly early in the show's lifespan. While exploring our video game vault for good speedrun candidates, Ben Hanson jokingly suggested Crystal's Pony Tales, and we were surprised to learn speedrunner Seckswrecks holds the record for the game at just under 10 minutes.

Join Ben Hanson, Benjamin Reeves, Games Done Quick's Chris Grant, Tony Ogbot, and Seckswrecks as they knock out the bizarre Genesis game at just about 10 minutes, as promised.

Exhibiting at BitSummit without a clue: How not to show off your game

GI Show – God Of War III Remastered, Arkham Knight DLC, Remembering Satoru Iwata

Update: We fixed an issue where the podcast would stop playing after the 30-minute mark. Sorry for the inconvenience!

As the relatively young video game medium ages, so too do the people who helped usher it into the dream factory we enjoy today. Sadly, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's time was prematurely cut short when he passed away last weekend. On this week's podcast, we reflect on the late Nintendo president's career. We also discuss the new Batgirl DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight, Godzilla, God of War III Remastered, and more.

Today's episode begins with Andrew Reiner, Kyle Hilliard, Joe Juba, and myself talking about what we've been playing (Ben Hanson is out this week). For the second segment we respond to a collection of terrific emails, covering topics like passing on our favorite media to younger generations and review scores (send your emails to [email protected]). Finally, we spend the last portion of the show honoring and remembering the late Satoru Iwata, from his beginnings as a programmer on games like Balloon Fight and the Kirby series, to ushering a new mobile age for Nintendo. The man accomplished much in his tragically cut-short career than anyone could ever dream of, and we hope you'll join us in remembering him. 

There's plenty of fun to be had this episode, so watch the video below or subscribe and listen to the audio on iTunes.
