It’s a new week at Game Informer, and time to introduce you to a new staff member. This week on the podcast, we’re introducing our new associate editor Suriel Vazquez, and he’s been playing a lot of the exciting and controversial fan-remake of Metroid II. First off though, we have Andrew Reiner and Matt Kato around to talk about the final release of the absurdly-awaited No Man’s Sky and why Abzu deserves your attention. We also ask Reiner a million questions about his experience at QuakeCon this year and what he thought of the gameplay demos he saw of Arkane’s Prey and Quake Champions. The back half of this week’s show is the final installment of our GI Game Club for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It’s been a pleasure, but it’s time to say goodbye to Adam Jensen… until Deus Ex: Mankind Divided comes out in a couple of weeks.
