It’s such a big week for games that we had to release two episodes of The Game Informer Show in one day. If you’re interested in hearing our thoughts on the freshly announced Nintendo Switch system, click here to check out our thorough discussion of Nintendo’s funky hybrid future. On this full episode though, we’re joined by Matt Bertz, Javy Gwaltney, and Andrew Reiner to talk about why we’re really enjoying Battlefield 1, why there’s more to Mafia III than meets the eye, the hype surrounding Red Dead Redemption 2, and much more. After some fun community emails, we have a great interview with Ready at Dawn co-founders Ru Weerasuriya and Andrea Pessino about The Order: 1886 in retrospect and how the studio is adapting for a multiplayer-focused future.
