GI Show – Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War And Nintendo's Future

On this week's exciting new episode of The Game Informer Show, we're joined by the Spawn On Me podcast's host and creator Kahlief Adams to discuss what we've been playing including Microsoft Flight Simulator, Battletoads, and more! Later in the segment, we discuss the absolutely bonkers reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that took place in Activision's Warzone battle royale.  Our main talker for the week, though, comes from the report that Nintendo is ramping up production on a more powerful model of the Switch for 2021. We unpack what we want from the house that Mario built from both a console and game perspective and examine what the next few years could look like for the Switch. As always, we end the show with another gripping round of community emails and character rankings. So please join Kahlief Adams, Joe Juba, Jeff Cork, and me for one of the most fun episodes we've put out this year. Thank you again to Kahlief for joining us on today's show. Be sure to give him a follow on Twitter and check out the Spawn On Me podcast where he spotlights amazing people of color in the video game industry. Thanks for listening!
