New Gameplay Today – Call Of Duty: WWII

The latest entry in the Call of Duty series is just about here. Join Leo Vader, Dan Tack, and me as we storm Omaha Beach in the campaign, followed by some zombie-slaying action in the Nazi Zombies mode.

The action is bloody and intense, as you'd expect from the Normandy invasion. Tack shows off just how lethal the game can be in what is either a calculated plan to highlight your character's mortality or a cautionary tale about the perils of trying to hold a conversation while playing a game. Either way, we can confirm the existence of a game-over screen.

Get Ready For Our Fun Extra Life Stream By Joining Team Game Informer

Coming up on Saturday, November 4th at 8:00 a.m. central time, Game Informer is kicking off an absurd 25-hour gaming live stream to raise money for Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, Minnesota. And we need your help.

Last year we raised over $52,000 for the children's hospital thanks to the incredibly generous support from the amazing Game Informer community and superhero Zachary Pligge. This year our team goal is to raise $60,000. You have a couple of options of how you can help. You can click here to join Team Game Informer and raise money by streaming games on your own, or you can tune in to our live stream to contribute to the fun by donating and helping to spread the word amongst your family and friends.

We're going to be playing a ton of fun games throughout the stream, like Pictionary, the Jackbox games, and much more. We're also going to be encouraging donations by letting you torture Game Informer editors by feeding us ghost peppers, throwing pies in our faces, or several new torturous challenges... We're also going to be holding a charity auction every 30 minutes, where we'll ship out to the winning bidder some amazing items from around the game industry. Honestly, we've never had a more amazing lineup of auction items.

RPG Grind Time – Beating 'Em And Tedium: The Best And Worst Of Dungeon Crawlers

RPG Grind Time – Beating 'Em And Tedium: The Best And Worst Of Dungeon Crawlers

As an RPG fan, I’ve played my share of dungeon crawlers over the years. After all, they were formative to the genre’s beginnings with Wizardry, The Bard’s Tale, and Megami Tensei. Being thrown into a dungeon rife with enemies, using only your wits to survive while seeing your progression play out before you is quite satisfying. These games have always required a large amount of repetition and grinding, which have turned some away from this type of experience in more recent years. I have mixed feelings about the state of the subgenre. Dungeon crawlers are full of highs and lows, and to continue to thrive, they must evolve and do some things better. 

Heat Signature's Bone-Chilling Halloween Update

Heat Signature's Bone-Chilling Halloween Update

Heat Signature is a very cool, very challenging game about space infiltration, but its temporary Halloween update essentially breaks the game all for the sake of a pun – and it's great.

Today is, unfortunately, the last day the update is available, and it does a few neat things. For one, it removes death. If you die, you turn into a skeleton and you basically live forever. Additionally, ships manned by a skeleton crew are now manned by literal skeletons, and when the ghost clause is present in a mission, you get to be a ghost. You can read more about the update here. It's weird, it's funny, and it essentially breaks the game, and we're okay with that.

Here's What Super Mario Odyssey's Most Expensive Suit Looks Like In Action

Here's What Super Mario Odyssey's Most Expensive Suit Looks Like In Action

In Super Mario Odyssey, there is one store item that towers above the rest in terms of price. It took us a long time, but we saved up and bought it.

It's probably the strangest suit in the game and once you see it in action, it kind of makes sense why it is so expensive. As a bonus, since buying the suit wiped out my entire coin stock, I also wanted to see what happens when you die without any coins – a situation I doubt many players would ever normally run into.

New Gameplay Today – Monster Hunter: World

New Gameplay Today – Monster Hunter: World

A few weeks back, Capcom held a Monster Hunter: World event in its Osaka offices. We hopped on the nearest plane (it was at the airport) and flew over to check it out. We played the game from the start for about 10 hours, and we returned with a ton of video footage and a whole lot of enthusiasm for the game. Today, Leo, Dan Tack, and I check out an epic hunt against a Jyuratodus. If you're not up on your Monster Hunter: World lore, that's the big mud-fish thing.

We begin our tour with a quick look at the game's Astera hub, which is where you take on quests, craft items, fill your bellies, and do all that other town stuff. After that, our four-person group heads out to the Wildspire Waste to battle Jyuratodus. As you'll soon learn, he's not the only big game that's hanging around in this area.

Conquering Super Mario Odyssey's Hardest Level – Episode One

Conquering Super Mario Odyssey's Hardest Level – Episode One

After you get 500 moons in Super Mario Odyssey, you can go attempt the game's most difficult level. It's a long, tough road without checkpoints – and we're going to beat it.

Andrew Reiner and I are going on this journey together. Reiner has already beaten the level on his own time, and while I gave it about two tries before we began recording, I consider this my first true attempt(s). Perhaps it goes without saying, but this video does contain SPOILERS for Super Mario Odyssey. It is the game's last level, after all.

Enjoy the video, and please be nice to me in the comments. I am doing my very best, I swear.

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Trek, Stargate, Godzilla

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Trek, Stargate, Godzilla

The second season of Stranger Things is damn good – even better than the first. Outside of a meandering seventh episode, I loved the sense of discovery that was sewn into each character and plot line, never once feeling like the show was running in circles or retreating to familiar territory covered in the first season. This is a show that dares to take chances, and doesn't race toward a conclusion. The creators clearly have a vision for where this thing is going next, and has appropriately paced the narrative to get there.

Similar praise can be showered upon Star Trek: Discovery, which was just picked up for a second season. Showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg signed on to return, and it sounds like it's a huge hit for CBS. "In just six episodes, Star Trek: Discovery has driven subscriber growth, critical acclaim and huge global fan interest for the first premium version of this great franchise," said Marc DeBevoise, president of CBS Interactive. "This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the Star Trek legacy." That's great news. We need more sci-fi shows that aren't only found on Syfy.

Every Transformation In Super Mario Odyssey

Every Transformation In Super Mario Odyssey

There are more than 50 transformations in Super Mario Odyssey. You will get most of them as you play through the game normally, but there are a few off-the-beaten path and optional transformations that are a little bit tougher to find. Below, you will find the full transformation list, along with notes on where to find them. Note that, especially near the end, there are some big SPOILERS for the game's ending and post-ending content.

If you're more of a visual learner, we've also compiled this list in a form everyone is familiar with – the PokéRap. Leo Vader took the list, made it rhyme (mostly), and set it all to song. Enjoy.
