This month's cover story revealed that Marvel's Midnight Suns is the upcoming card-based strategy RPG from Firaxis, the studio behind the beloved XCOM series.

We also talk about our newest Game Informer cover story: Tales of Arise. Then Dan describes his time talking to Red Hook Studios about Darkest Dungeon II. Pokémon Unite has been one of the bigger surprises and might be a good breakout MOBA for a lot of people. Alex says he "can't put this damn game down. It's a genuinely fun MOBA with a pocket monster twist, and it's probably better than you think." Wildermyth is an indie strategy game that shouldn't be overlooked. We were a little late to the review party, but in his review, Dan said, "If you've always wanted a fantasy Dungeons & Dragons stylized XCOM game, Wildermyth might be exactly what you're looking for." Meanwhile, Neo: The World Ends With You is the long-awaited sequel to the beloved JRPG The World End With You. Kim said, "It captures the magic of what made the first game so special, but it also retains some of its bigger issues and frustrations with difficulty balancing and the repetition of tedious tasks."

    Black Widow is now available in theaters and not only does it explore Natasha Romanoff's origins and offer fans a fresh look at her past, but it also sets the stage for what the future of the MCU looks like. How does Taskmasker stack up against how we know that character in the comics, where does Yelena go from here, when are we getting a Brady Bunch-esque spinoff of Alexis and the rest of the family? These are the real questions and questions we dive into with Game Informer's latest episode of Spoiled! The latest Marvel movie has been long in the making, and though it did see some delays, it is finally here! Black Widow has been a character that fans have been clamoring to see in a standalone film. Now that it has arrived, we are digging deep to see if it delivers. From exploring her past pre-Red Room to seeing exactly how far the corruption of this organization goes, Black Widow deals in heavy themes such as trauma, abuse, and loss of free will. But, it's not all stern storylines and life or death situations; The Black Widow movie has more than enough moments of levity and also explores a relationship between two sisters that feels organic and natural. It also gave us a chance to see Natasha find her long-awaited redemption and shows off the power of family, whether they are blood or not. Join Ben Reeves, Marcus Stewart, and Liana Ruppert as they dive deep into the latest Marvel flick. We discuss what we loved about the movie, what we didn't like, how it stood the test of expectations, and where we think the MCU will go next. And our undying love for Yelena, Natasha's younger sister, who truly stole the film in our humble opinion. You can also check out our Spoiled on our YouTube channel as well, in addition to a plethora of other video choices there for your amusement. So sit back, crack open a cold water (because it's hot and Black Widow would want you to be hydrated), and come share with us your thoughts on how the Black Widow movie fits into the bigger picture of the MCU.

    It's finally that special time of year again. E3 2021 is in the air and we can't wait to see what some of the biggest names in the video game industry have in store for their legions of fans. But one does not celebrate such an occasion with a casual 15-minute chat. We dedicated a whole special edition of The GI Show to give our clairvoyant predictions about what the likes of Microsoft, Nintendo, and more have to surprise us when E3 (and Geoff Keighley) open their digital doors to the masses. Will we see anything from huge tentpoles such as The Elder Scrolls VI or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2? What will PlayStation's presence entail? How are we going to contain ourselves when Halo Infinite comes on screen? Only time will tell. The wait for E3 week (weekend? Month? How do we quantify this anymore?) can be excruciating, but we have just the remedy to tide you over. Join Alex Stadnik, Liana Ruppert, Marcus Stewart, and new-hire John Carson as they dish on what they think will go down during gaming's biggest events! Thanks for listening!

    On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we discuss a handful of the games we've been playing recently. Okay, it's just Cyberpunk 2077, but that game is still a handful. We're also joined by community member Bob Buel (of the 99 Questions podcast), who won an auction during Extra Life to be on the show, and he talks about some games he's been playing, like Astro's Playroom and Tetris Effect: Connected. At the end of the show, we interview arcade industry vet Eugene Jarvis who talks about his work on games like Defender, Robotron, and Smash TV. Jarvis also shares more about how fans would try to cheat old arcade games for free plays. It's a full show, but we make time for another fantastic round of community emails in there somewhere.
