Replay – Tony Hawk's Underground

It's no secret that we at G.I. are huge fans of skateboarding video games, even going so far as to play goo-goo baby crayon games in order to get our halfpipe-hugging fix. Luckily, we've got just the video series to help us through these dark, skateboard-averse times. This week on Replay, Reiner, Suriel, Leo, and I take a look at one of the less-classic entries in the classic Tony Hawk series – and it doesn't take long for things to go...off the rails. Get it? Rails are a skateboarding thing. Oh, nevermind. 

Watch us as we skate our way through New Jersey and New York, helping random citizens and ruining the lives of innocent nut vendors – hey, a skater's life is complicated. We also may or may not discuss the reprehensible lack of modern skateboarding games on the market – you'll just have to tune in to see if that's a real talking point or not!

Here Are All Of Red Dead Redemption II's Cheat Codes (So Far)

Red Dead Redemption II has a lot going for it: beautiful story, brutal and gripping combat, fascinating realistic mechanics. Oh, and a bunch of cheat codes. You remember those right? It was before the days of being charged money for "EXP boosts" in games. Anyway, Red Dead Redemption II has a lot of them! Some of them still haven't been unlocked, but here's all of them for now and how you input them.

To input cheats, do the following:

Go to settings. Look in the bottom right corner. You'll see the button you need to press to access the cheats menu (Triangle or Y depending on your platform). Press it. You'll come to a screen filled with locked codes. You need to input certain phrases to unlock them. Keep in mind, after you use a cheat, saving becomes disabled as do achievements/trophies.

Science-Fiction Weekly – A Video Journey Into Fallout 76's Wasteland

Science-Fiction Weekly – A Video Journey Into Fallout 76's Wasteland

Fallout 76 is out now, and Game Informer's review is coming along...slowly. Bethesda Game Studios has crafted a massive open-world experience, and we want to subject ourselves to as much of it as we can before offering a verdict. My time with the game has bounced chaotically between good and bad, delivering enjoyable exploration that is eventually crushed by glitches, bugs, and puzzling balancing issues.

In the video below, Leo Vader joins me for a brief tour into the wasteland. My character is mid-level and I'm exploring the eastern region of the world. In our previous three-hour video, we showed off cooperative play extensively. I wanted to show off a little of the single-player experience, and what questing on your own can be like. Spoiler: It's a lot like Fallout 4.

If there's anything else you'd like to see, let us know in the comments section below. My play session is occurring around the clock, and I may be able to accommodate your requests.

New Gameplay Today – Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee

New Gameplay Today – Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee

We may still have a while to wait for an all-new Pokémon game to hit Switch, but in the meantime, you can revisit the early days of the series with Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Let's Go, Eevee. These games are remakes of the first generation of Pokémon (specifically Yellow), but make several modernizations and take a few liberties.

Join us as we explain how Pokémon Go integration works in these games and take a stroll through Go Park, Pallet Town, and Viridian City. We also show off the drop-in co-op play in a battle against an Elite Four member. The episode culminates with a climactic (?) showdown with an overpowered Mewtwo.

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Let's Go, Eevee is out now for Switch. You can check out our review here.

The Evolution of Fallout

The Evolution of Fallout

You stand at the threshold. The great metal door shrieks inward under the weight of all that steel and lead before finally shuddering open and rolling to the side. Beacons flash and sirens wail, warning you of the fateful decision you’re about to make. After a lifetime of safety and security in your vast underground home, you’re being forced to leave, and now you’re at the brink. There’ll be no turning back once you’ve made your decision. Sucking in your breath, you summon all your courage and cross the threshold. When you emerge into the sunlight, you see for the first time, what has become of your world after the gleaming Atomic Age ended in nuclear fire.

Since its beginning, the Fallout franchise has been marked by these such occasions. A hero must leave the safety of his or her home and brave the dangers of a vast, unknown world. And with Fallout 76, Bethesda’s latest venture, the developers likewise are striking out into uncharted territory. But Fallout has never been static. Over the decades, as technology and graphics have improved, the game has changed and evolved to fit the times, but through it all, its spirit has remained intact. To truly understand this, however, first we must step out into the Wasteland.
