In this week’s episode of The Game Informer Show, we break down our Forspoken review and chat about why the open-world game is weird enough to develop a devoted fanbase despite conflicting reviews. Additionally, returning guest Kahlief Adams joins us to promote Spawn On Me’s upcoming game awards show, The Spawnies, and also chat with Marcus and Kyle about the newly-released Dead Space remake.
Lastly, Alex and Kyle share very early impressions from Hi-Fi Rush, the stylish action game from the creators of The Evil Within that shadow-dropped yesterday.
