Opinion – An Argument Against Character Cameos In Games

Opinion – An Argument Against Character Cameos In Games

Dear game creators...

Do not respond to emails with the subject line "Do you want to add a Terminator: Dark Fate character to your game?" It's spam. I'm not kidding. The Mortal Kombat 11 developers fell for it. The Gears 5 team also went for it. So did the Ghost Recon: Breakpoint team. James Cameron is probably laughing his ass off on an Avatar set, saying "They really added them to their games?! ROFL!!!"

All jokes aside, as fascinating as it is to see characters from other media come to life in our games, I think it's getting a little out of hand. Look at the Mortal Kombat 11 image above. It looks like a wax museum exhibit. Yes, I like all of those characters, but I also want Mortal Kombat to continue being Mortal Kombat.

Replay – Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

Replay – Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

On this week's show we take a look at Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, the third entry in the beloved stealth/action series. We go in without any tutorial, which proves to be costly early on, but once we learn how to see in the dark and punch guys in the ears, things turn around and we make progress for the first time in Replay history. We dedicate the full hour to this classic title that appeared on pretty much every system at the time, including PlayStation 2 and GameCube.

Thanks again for watching. This week's show was prerecorded, but we'll hopefully be back to the live format next week for another viewer-choice pick.

Talking Monster Hunter World: Iceborne with Ryozo Tsujimoto

Monster Hunter: World Iceborne is less than a week away (at least if you're playing on console, anyway), so we decided to catch up with Iceborne producer Ryozo Tsujimoto at PAX West 2019 for a quick chat before we head to Hoarfrost Reach.

GI: Okay, so were there any weapons that you wanted to add or thought about adding to this expansion?

Role Queue Is The Best Thing To Come To Overwatch

Role Queue Is The Best Thing To Come To Overwatch

I’m enjoying playing competitive Overwatch again. I never thought I’d be back in this spot, but role queue has turned things around drastically. Look, I like everything behind competitive play: the bigger stakes, more experienced players, and slowly climbing into new skill tiers. Matches take on a whole new meaning when something is at risk and a higher level of competition means a bigger adrenaline rush when you come out on top. However, matches often felt a gamble, coming more down to luck about your teammates’ willingness to tank and heal rather than actual skill.

Replay – Aliens: Colonial Marines

Replay – Aliens: Colonial Marines

Join the Game Informer crew for a look at one of the most controversial games of all time. We're playing through the opening acts of Gearbox Software and Sega's Aliens: Colonial Marines, a game that looked great in trailers prior to release, yet ended up looking considerably different when players finally got their hands on it. We discuss this topic, and also try to find the good in this 2013 release as we try to keep the xenomorph scourge at bay.

Make sure to subscribe on Twitch and YouTube to be notified when we go live next, like we do with Replay every Friday at 2 PM Central. Thanks again for the support, everyone!
