On this week’s episode of The Game Informer Show, we discuss a handful of the games we’ve been playing recently. Okay, it’s just Cyberpunk 2077, but that game is still a handful. We’re also joined by community member Bob Buel (of the 99 Questions podcast), who won an auction during Extra Life to be on the show, and he talks about some games he’s been playing, like Astro’s Playroom and Tetris Effect: Connected.
At the end of the show, we interview arcade industry vet Eugene Jarvis who talks about his work on games like Defender, Robotron, and Smash TV. Jarvis also shares more about how fans would try to cheat old arcade games for free plays. It’s a full show, but we make time for another fantastic round of community emails in there somewhere. So please join Kim Wallace, Andrew Reiner, Liana Ruppert, Bob Buel, Alex Van Aken, and myself for another wild and ever-entertaining episode!
