God of War or Red Dead II? Drafting The Best Games Of 2018

Click to watch embedded media While the internet may be more familiar with fantasy sports such as football or baseball, that doesn't mean the gamers of the world can't have a little fun too. From God of War to Red Dead Redemption II and everything in between, join Game Informer as we pick the best games of 2018 and form the ultimate fantasy teams. But how does the process work? The panel of Ben Reeves, John Carson, Kim Wallace, Alex Stadnik, and Alex Van Aken have assembled to select five games apiece from 2018 to create the most robust roster possible. After randomizing the draft order, each person will have time to decide. At the end of the round, the order reverses, and the fun continues from the fifth person back to the first. Sounds pretty standard, right? You can fill your list with as many great games as possible and create the video game equivalent of the 1990s Chicago Bulls. That's where you're wrong. If you've played fantasy sports before, you're well aware that picking players in the late rounds can get rough. In that spirit, each panel member in today's video must select one title off Metacritic's list of the worst games of 2018. In a year of such high highs, it's incredible how low the lows can get. But why are we drafting games like this? Just for fun? Why no, for the community validation, of course! That's right, folks. You get to vote on who has the strongest list. Be sure to head over to our Discord to select the editor with the strongest list, and we'll read the results on this week's episode of The GI Show! Thank you so much for your participation and please let us know what you thought of the segment in the comments below!

    Marvel's Spider-Man Won't Have A Physical PS5 Release, No PS4 Save Transfers

    With Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the horizon, PlayStation fans planning on diving in on the PS5 are excited to see how the game runs on Sony’s most upgraded technology. With more of a focus on digital than any generation prior, the news that the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered game won’t have a physical release on PlayStation 5 isn’t a huge loss, but something to be aware of regardless. 

    With the PS5 launch of Miles Morales, the base game is getting a PS5 upgrade as well. With new improvements made to the title’s performance and visuals, paired with Miles being front and center thanks to the continuing story, it’s an exciting time to be a Marvel fan. That being said, for those that like physical releases or were planning to purchase as a gift, Insomniac Games has confirmed that a Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered won’t see a disc version and it won’t offer save transfers. 

    In the above Twitter thread, the official Insomniac Games account confirmed no physical releases. When one person inquired about picking up where they left on with the PlayStation 4 version, the account replied: “Saves won’t transfer from the original game to the Remaster.”

    This is regarding the Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered edition, which is important to keep in mind. The Miles Morales continuation is technically a standalone, despite previous mixed messaging. The standalone Miles Morales SKU will see a phsyical launch, with cover art previously revealed. 

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered and Miles Morales are both poised for a November release for PlayStation 5.
