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!

    CS Soapbox: Why Ken Jeong Should Replace T.I. in Ant-Man 3

    With 50% of most living creatures destroyed of existence, a savior was needed by the universe in  Avengers: Endgame . Enter  U Store ’s (Self Storage) resident security dude, who managed to get easy for Ant-Man to capitalize on his return from the Quantum Realm. Scott Lang would continue to greatly help save the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it is well known by us, however, not before Ken Jeong’s security guard freed him from the sidekick is necessary by that warehouse prison-every hero.

    Jeong’s  Endgame  appearance was section of a number of related cameos in the MCU. Before directing  Captain America: THE WINTERTIME Soldier , the Russo brothers done the NBC sitcom  Community . If they were hired by Marvel Studios, they brought some  Community  alum alongside them. 

    Following Danny Pudi’s cameo in  THE WINTERTIME Soldier Community  cameos became sort of running joke in the MCU; everyone from Yvette Nicole Brown (also in Endgame ), Donald Glover, and Jim Rash to Aaron Himelstein and DC Pierson have came out (Brie Larson and Randall Park have even become recurring characters). Now, there’s a chance for Jeong’s security guard to become full-fledged character in  Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

    If you haven’t heard, T.I. will never be returning alongside Paul Rudd in the threequel. The news headlines comes amidst allegations contrary to the rapper/actor and his wife for  “sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, harassment and assault.”  T.I. was formally announced as an ingredient of&nbsp never; Ant-Man 3  so he might not need been the right section of the film to begin with. However, it appears unlikely the writers wouldn’t desire to keep carefully the franchise’s comedic trifecta intact. 

    T.I. debuted alongside Scott’s friend Luis (Michael Peña) as fellow ex-con Dave. In  Ant-Man and the Wasp , Scott, Luis (Michael Peña), Dave, and Kurt (David Dastmalchian) ran a security company astutely named Ex-Con. Having said that, if Scott’s crew will probably remain full require a new quirky character it’ll, and who much better than Jeong’s inaudible security guard having an affinity for JG Ballard’s  The Terminal Beach

    After “Security Guard” got Scott from the storage cage, that they had some interaction offscreen presumably. He told Scott about Thanos probably, days gone by five years, and perhaps they talked just a little shop even. In the end, they’re both in the security game-which is excatly why it seems sensible for Scott, having lost Dave, to create his new friend in to the fold as a hilarious foil to Kurt and Luis. In fact, it creates so much sense, it’s probably already happening.

    With over twenty years of acting credits, Jeong has generated comedic chemistry with much everyone pretty. We have a tendency to associate him with belligerent characters like  The Hangover ’s Mr. Chow, crying “toodle-oo motherf*ckers” within an exaggerated accent. Despite limited screen time, he appears to steal the show always. From appearances in  Crazy Rich Asians Community  as a tyrant hell-bent on Greendale domination, or across from Rudd in&nbsp even; Role Models , and dealing with Peña recently in Tom and Jerry , Jeong is made for larger-than-life supporting roles. However, he didn’t will have to be loud to obtain his point across. Sometimes all it requires is 9 seconds of silence and a Tom Selleck stache. 

    We took notice of  Endgame ’s intrepid defender of storage. So, ditch the hat and present the man a genuine name. Since  Endgame  was the Russos’ last Marvel film reportedly, the move would solidify Greendale Community College’s unspoken hold on the MCU-a subtle reminder of the cinematic universe’s best entries. In  Ant-Man 3  his character could possibly be nuanced, awkward and nerdy (for insufficient an improved word), worth the science fiction he reads. A turn much like when he donned the white coat for his sitcom Dr. Ken . With a villain as infectious as Kang the Conqueror coming, a hero, or rather, a sidekick, is what the physician ordered just.
