The Last of Us HBO Reactions and More Game Industry Layoffs | GI show
In this week’s episode of The Game Informer Show, Host Alex Van Aken returns from a secret trip to Japan with Marcus Stewart. The couple chatted to Kyle Hilliard about the first two episodes of HBO’s The Last Of Us and shared their initial reactions to the show. Unfortunately, the video game industry has faced massive layoffs this week, with major companies like Microsoft, 343 Industries and Bethesda reportedly cutting their workforces by over 10,000 employees. At the same time, on the media side, our talented colleagues at Giant Bomb, GameSpot and Fandom were also affected.
During The Playlist, the crew chats about the latest games they’ve played, including Tchia, PlateUp!, Pentiment and The Case Of The Golden Idol.
