Welcome back to The Game Informer Show. On this week’s episode, we mop up some of the best things seen at E3 2016 with guests Andy McNamara and Andrew Reiner but first we cover some games that are out now. We’re joined by Kimberley Wallace to talk about the Wii U’s hot new JRPG regrettably called Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. We also cover the woes of Mighty No 9, and the highs of the also recently released Drawful 2 and Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In the back half of this week’s show we speak with Stephane D’Astous, who built up Eidos Montreal to develop games like Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the Thief reboot. While he’s no longer with the studio, he has amazing insight into what it’s like to work for Square within a Western studio and much more.
