Evolve’s Wraith monster steals the show

Fear is meant to follow in the wake of most monsters, but I’ve never found Evolve to be scary. It’s a hunting game that puts you on edge, though leaning forward – as if to stick your head through the foliage just to glimpse the cloaked creature – is …

GI Show 228: PSX, The Game Awards, Destiny: The Dark Below, The Crew

We discuss Sony's new fan convention, the game awards formerly known as the VGAs, new Destiny DLC, and Ubisoft's The Crew.

First off, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Andy Reiner, Kyle Hilliard, Ben Reeves, and Ben Hanson to talk about the weekend's two big video game events: Sony's PlayStation Experience convention and Geoff Keighley's retooled Video Game Awards. Both received positive notices both online and from those who were there, and were packed with big reveals and game announcements. We discuss all the highlights.

In the second segment, GI's "Destiny Posse" (Andy McNamara, Matt Miller, and Brian Vore) stop by to talk about the game's new DLC, The Dark Below. These guys are addicted, and have logged hundreds of hours into the game, so they have a lot to say about this new content.

Finally, Jeff Marchifava, Andy Reiner, and reviewer Matt Kato race (get it?) into the studio to talk about Ubisoft's open-world driving game The Crew. It's not everything it could have been, but it's also a tremendous technological achievement. Listen to hear what went wrong (and right) with this interesting racer.

GI Show 227: Game of Thrones, Persona Q, This War of Mine

This week we discuss Telltale's newest game based on HBO's blockbuster fantasy series, plus two interesting new titles.

First off, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Andy Reiner and Jeff Cork to talk about Telltale's new Game of Thrones adventure series. Episode One is promising, showing that the formula established with The Walking Dead can easily traslate to the world of Westeros.

In the second segment, Kim Wallace stops by to talk about the new Atlus RPG crossover game, which blends the best of the Persona and Etrian Odyssey franchises. It's one of the year's best RPG experiences.

Finally, Dan Tack, Tim Turi, and Ben Hanson are on hand to talk about a grim, emotionally draining new survival game called This War of Mine. It's a very deep meditation on the nature of war and existence, and leads to some interesting discussion.

NYCC 2014: PlayStation’s first TV show Powers gets a trailer

Earlier this year Sony TV had announced that they were adapting the comic book Powers into a TV show exclusively for PlayStation. Today you can have your first look at the fruits of their labor with the release of their first trailer. In addition to the trailer release, the show had a panel yesterday at New York Comic-Con. My favorite bit of information from the panel was that just like Netflix and HBO shows, Powers will contain adult themes and will have a hard R rating feel to it.

Powers is a comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Oeming that centers around a task unit that is in charge of keeping an eye on the people that have special abilities. Powers is set for release on PlayStation platforms in December. The first episode will be free for anyone on a PlayStation device, while the season will be free for any PlayStation Plus subscriber.
