GI Show – Switch Hands-On, Yakuza 0, Vicarious Visions
It's an exciting week for The Game Informer Show! Ben Reeves, Kyle Hilliard, and I flew out to New York City to play around with the Nintendo Switch. We have a lot of impressions to share, both with the hardware itself and all of the games Nintendo revealed. After a lot of Nintendo talk, Jeff Cork jumps in to explain how he fell in love with Yakuza 0 on the PlayStation 4. After some great community emails, we then interview Velan Studios' Guha and Karthik Bala about their experience founding and running the prolific Vicarious Visions from 1990-2016.
