Welcome to a dense, new episode of The Game Informer Show! First up, we have Jeff Marchiafava to talk about why he really enjoyed Horizon Zero Dawn from Guerrilla Games. Then Javy Gwaltney shares a lot of new info on his time playing Mass Effect Andromeda for three hours, and Ben Reeves weighs in on the new (console-friendly) RTS Halo Wars 2. Jeff Cork also shares his raw impressions of playing Double Fine's Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin with PlayStation VR. After some great community emails, we unleash our full opinions on our extended time playing the Nintendo Switch. It's an exciting week! Tell a friend if you enjoy the show!
