Replay – Metal Slug 2

Metal Slug 2 is an insane, bombastic, cooperative shooter that goes places you would never expect. The result is a breezy romp through an impressive shoot 'em up. Released in 1998, Metal Slug 2's detailed animation outdoes many modern games. And its story is bonkers. We went into this episode with a part two planned, but ended up enjoying the game so much we saw it to its conclusion. This episode also, officially, introduces Game Informer's new video editor, Leo Vader! If you pay attention to our website, you have already seen a great deal of his work, but this episode marks his true induction to the world of Replay. (Please visit the site to view this media)

Weekend Warrior – Back To The Old Grind

Many of us are still suffering from our post-E3 hangover. That means returning to the games we abandoned for a week and trying to figure out what the hell we were last doing before we saved. It also means that as the dust settles and the hype has worn off from last week's reveals, we're reflecting on what we just witnessed over the past week. So what do you think? Apart from what you'll be playing, let us know in the comments how you feel about the announcements one week later. And for what we thought be sure to check out our Best of E3 Awards.   Jared Koncsol (@JaredKoncsol) – I started Doom a few days ago, so I’ll be finishing that up. I’m also hoping to get into NBA 2K17 some, but I finally broke down and ordered Overwatch so my life can become the unceasing sinkhole I’ve always wanted it to be.   Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I feel like it’s the same story for me every weekend at this point: Persona 5 and Overwatch.   Doug DeLong (@DeLongDoug) – It’s another weekend of Zelda for me. I finally got over my urge to collect every Korok seed so I should be able to start moving through the game faster. I’m also getting an itch to play something other than Switch, and I’ve got two options –  just need to decide which. I think I’ll probably blow a bunch of money on the Steam sale or pick up a PS4.    Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I’m still in E3 recovery mode, so hopefully this weekend will offer respite from last week’s insanity. A Cars 3 viewing will probably happen; a lake will be visited; a meal will be consumed; Nier: Automata will be played; and finally, sleeping in will occur (maybe).   Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – I played about an hour of Yakuza 0 last night and enjoyed it a lot, so I’ll probably continue learning about these Dojimas and Kazumas everyone’s talking about. I’m also mulling over when I’ll replay Wolfenstein: The New Order since the new one’s on the way. I liked it the first time around but didn’t love it, so I’m hoping I’ll like it more this time around. Also, I bought Thumper on Switch so I might try that at some point. Craig Taylor (@CraigTaylor0805) – I'm still grinding through Kingdom Hearts II, and I have to say that all the people who told me II was better than the original Kingdom Hearts are out of their minds. I'll also be teaching Jared the ropes in Overwatch because he's probably really bad.

Ed Boon Posts July 11 Date For Sub-Zero DLC In Injustice 2

Red Hood recently made his Injustice 2 debut as the first fighter included in the Fighter Pack 1 DLC bundle, and director Ed Boon has given fans more information on when the first crossover character, Mortal Kombat's Sub-Zero, will be arriving in the game. Boon, who is known to deliver updates to the community through social media, took to Twitter this afternoon to give a date for Sub-Zero. Winter is coming.....in July. pic.twitter.com/DEj3QwV3G0 — Ed Boon (@noobde) June 23, 2017 Sub-Zero is the first crossover character to hit Injustice 2. NetherRealm has teased that Raiden might make an appearance in a future DLC bundle by posting a seemingly obvious silhouette in the Fighter Pack 1 trailer. Fighter Pack 1 also features Red Hood (already out) and Starfire. Scorpion set the precedent for Mortal Kombat crossover characters in the Injustice series by way of DLC in the first game.

Is The Cars 3 Video Game Better Than The Movie?

They say life is a highway, and you should ride it all night long, but do you have what it takes to sit through an entire showing of Cars 3? Game Informer's Ben Hanson says it's easily Pixar's worst film, and a good number of critics on Rotten Tomatoes echo his sentiments. If you don't like hearing that Lightning McQueen may have run out of gas, his tires still squawk loudly in Cars 3: Driven to Win, the video game adaptation developed by Avalanche Software. This racing experience is fun, challenging, and offers plenty of depth in its modes and challenges. You can even play through it cooperatively with a friend via split-screen, something we show off expertly in this video feature. We also dive deep into the combat mechanics and tricks, hopefully providing you with enough information to determine if the game looks better than the film. Cars 3: Driven to Win is available now on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U. We show off the Xbox One version in the video. (Please visit the site to view this media)
