In this week's episode we speak with the lead designer of XCOM: Enemy Within and debate Quantic Dream's polarizing Beyond: Two Souls.

First off, we welcome a special guest to the Game Informer Show: Ananda Gupta, the lead designer of the upcoming expansion XCOM: Enemy Within. There's a lot of new content in the game, from espionage to crazy new gene modifications. We go into all the expansion's new content in detail.

Following up is Joe Juba, who joins host Matt Helgeson to discuss his review of David Cage's Beyond: Two Souls. Cage is a distinctive storyteller, but not everyone agrees about the quality of his latest project, which starts actress Ellen Page. The wide-ranging discussion also turns to the philosophy of reviewing games in general and other games which garnered wildly divergent reactions.
