Welcome back to The Game Informer Show podcast! We have a heck of a show for you this week. First up, Brian Shea, Kyle Hilliard, and Javy Gwaltney talk about their time playing Splatoon 2 and how it compares to the series' Wii U debut. Then Suriel Vazquez joins us as we share our impressions of the Destiny 2 Beta and discuss if it's changed our outlook on Bungie's sequel. After some fun conversations about platformers and fighting games and some great community emails, we're honored to be joined by astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson to talk about his hopeful goals of Kickstarting a gaming experience to help a new audience understand and appreciate the universe.
