GI Show – Best/Worst New IP, Virginia, BioShock Game Club

Welcome to a new episode of The Game Informer Show! First off, Kimberley Wallace talks about the most impressive games that she played at the Tokyo Game Show this year and explains why Nioh really stood out. Then we have Jeff Marchiafava on deck to talk about his disappointment with Recore from Armature and Microsoft, which beautifully segues into a larger discussion comparing this console generation's new IP compared to the last generation. To close out our discussion on new and upcoming games, Javy Gwaltney discusses the recently released adventure-ish game called Virginia and we try to better understand why he considers it "an elegant and riveting thriller." Later on in the show, we're joined by a very special celebrity guest to talk about all things nerdy and good in the world. This week we also kick off our big Game Club discussion of the original BioShock with Javy Gwaltney, Suriel Vazquez, and Elise Favis, and I breaking down why Rapture holds up so well. Enjoy the show, and feel free to tell a friend about it!

Great Ace Attorney 2 Announced At Tokyo Game Show

At TGS, Capcom revealed Great Ace Attorney 2, a sequel to the Japan-only 3DS game that released in 2015. The sequel once again stars Naruhodō Ryūnosuke, an ancestor of Phoenix Wright, and Sherlock Holmes.

The title is set in 19th century Japan, and will take place after the events of the previous game. It's unclear whether Capcom has any plans to bring the Great Ace Attorney series to North America. It will release for the Nintendo 3DS, and you can view the trailer below.

Capcom also released a video that celebrates the Ace Attorney series' 15 year anniversary.

You can read our review of the latest Ace Attorney release, Spirit of Justice, here.

 

Our Take
I've played every Ace Attorney game outside of Investigations 2 and Great Ace Attorney, since neither of those released in North America. I'd love to see them make their way here in the future.

First off, Kim and I share full impressions from our trip to Guerilla Games to see Horizon Zero Dawn for the new cover story. Then we talk about PlayStation's new line of hardware and what the PS4 Pro and the potential of HDR and 4K displays mean for gamers. We also cover all we learned about Mass Effect: Andromeda, Super Mario Run on iOS, early impressions of (the $ 20, but soon to be free to play) The Tomorrow Children, and Kim's review of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II. After some wonderful emails from the community, we're joined by Javy Gwaltney, Suriel Vazquez, and Dan Tack to talk about the highlights of PAX West and Call of Duty XP.

GI Show – Warcraft, 3DS News, Armature’s Mark Pacini

This week on The Game Informer Show we're strolling down memory lane with Dan Tack, Kyle Hilliard, and special guest (and former Game Informer editor) Adam Biessener from Stardock. World of Warcraft's new expansion Legion was released on Tuesday, and Dan Tack has been playing as much as possible so he can share his thoughts with you all. After Legion impressions, we reflect on the best and worst aspects of World of Warcraft's 12-year run with its original Game Informer reviewer Adam Biessener. Then, in a shift toward upcoming games, Kyle breaks down the Nintendo Direct for us and we weigh in on the 3DS game announcements. We also talk a little bit about Obduction from the creators of Myst. After some great emails from the community, we're joined by Armature's Mark Pacini, who you might know better as the director of the Metroid Prime trilogy and the director of Microsoft's upcoming ReCore.

Our Take
It might not be Sony's
most impressive showing ever, but considering the fact that both Microsoft and
Nintendo are skipping TGS completely, it's nice to see the company is still
prepping a Japan-focused line-up for TGS goers.
