After a two-week break, The Game Informer Show returns full force after host Alex Van Aken traveled throughout Europe for Gamescom 2022. Special guest Kenneth Shepard, staff writer at Fanbyte, joins the crew to discuss our God Of War Ragnarök cover story and The Last Of Us Part 1 review impressions.
Sadly, this episode also marks Jay Guisao’s last week as a Game Informer editor. We talk about his creative process from writing his first cover story and how his studies in game development are preparing him for his next journey. While his departure is bittersweet, Jay is moving on to an incredible new job you’ll learn more about soon if you follow him on Twitter.
