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!

    Microsoft Has More Studio Acquisitions ALONG THE WAY Still, None SHOWING At TGS just

    this week once the company revealed they spent 7

    Microsoft shook the gaming world earlier.5 billion dollars to obtain ZeniMax and most of its properties. Having an impressive lineup of acquisitions under its belt already, CEO Satya Nadella says that Microsoft is definately not done-just don’t expect any announcements as of this year’s Tokyo Game Show.

    ZeniMax Media may be the parent company for some major studios including id Software, Arkane, and Bethesda. This is an enormous move for the business most importantly as those studios join the ranks of previous acquisitions announced prior. For all those excited to see Microsoft putting themselves right into a position for more exclusives, or at minimum more resources, Nadella confirmed to CNET that more acquisitions are certainly an objective.

    “You can’t awaken 1 day and say, ‘Let me create a game studio.’ The essential notion of having content is indeed we are able to reach larger communities.”

    In exactly the same interview, Xbox head Phil Spencer added, “Content is merely the incredible ingredient to your platform that people continue to spend money on. This doubles how big is our creative organization.”

    After this week’s big reveal, many were wondering if Microsoft’s presence at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show would hold any longer surprises. Let that breath out, boo, since they aren’t likely to be making any major power moves there, as confirmed in this Twitter post.


    If you can see Microsoft require any studio, no matter prior history, who you want to see it undertake next? With the creative direction Xbox has been moving in under Phil Spencer’s leadership, I would want to see BioWare keep coming back in to the fold. Think about you? Sound off in the comment section below!
