by Ben Hanson on Mar 22, 2018 at 06:15 PM

Welcome back to The Game Informer Show! On this episode, we're covering too many games to count! Okay, maybe it's 6.5. First up, we're joined by Joe Juba to talk about his review for Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, then Matt Kato shares his thoughts on A Way Out. We touch on the launch and confusion surrounding Rare's Sea of Thieves before Suriel Vazquez regales us with the inside scoop on his recent trip to Valve to play Artifact. Javy Gwaltney joins the show to talk about Warhammer: Vermintide 2 as well! After some great community emails starring the winner of the #GIShowChallenge, we're joined by Microsoft's Chris Charla to talk about partnering with developers to release games like Cuphead, his days founding IGN, and a surprising amount of Bill Gates talk. We hope you enjoy the show!
