We have a lot to get through on this episode of Game Informer’s podcast. First up, reviewer Joe Juba and superfan Dan Tack tell us why Persona 5 is one of the best JRPGs in years. Then Kyle Hilliard shares his impressions of playing more Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch before Javy Gwaltney, Elise Favis, and Ben Reeves pop in to talk about the modernized throwback to adventure games with Thimbleweed Park. Then we take a full dive into Dan Tack’s brain, with him sharing impressions of Dark Souls III’s final piece of DLC and the intense PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Steam. After some great community emails, we kick off our thorough GI Game Club discussion on the divisive Mass Effect: Andromeda.
