Welcome back to The Game Informer Show podcast! This week, we share our initial impressions of Destiny 2 with Matt Miller, Suriel Vazquez, and Andrew Reiner. Then we talk about our new cover story on Middle-earth: Shadow of War and what we learned about the game while visiting the studio out in Seattle. We also cover some of the most exciting games from PAX, Dan Tack's thoughts on Monster Hunter Stories, and Andrew Reiner's review of Knack II. After some great community emails, we're joined by Molly Carroll from Chucklefish Games to talk about the Starbound developer's push into publishing games like Stardew Valley and beyond.
