We’re back with another exciting episode of The Game Informer Show! Join us on another busy week in the industry where we break down our review thoughts on Back 4 Blood, discuss the news that Pokémon Legends: Arceus isn’t exactly open world, and preview Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl! We also chat about our time in the Halo Infinite test flight and Battlefield 2042 Open Beta with special guest Kahlief Adams from Spawn On Me and Riot Games! As always, we round out the show with another fun round of community emails in one of the sillier episodes we’ve had in a while.
