Welcome to another episode of Game Informer's weekly podcast! This week, Dan Tack joins the show to explain why he's so impressed by Nioh and how the game compares to Dark Souls. After that, Kyle Hilliard talks a bit about Yoshi's best game in years... even if it is just a port. Then Kimberley Wallace rounds out the show with a heapin' helpin' of "Tales of" and Kingdom Hearts talk. We're also joined in the final stretch by a former writer at Obsidian, Eric Fenstermaker to talk about working on Fallout: New Vegas, writing South Park: The Stick of Truth with Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and also the legendary, cancelled Aliens RPG from Sega.
