In this week’s episode of The Game Informer Show, the crew discusses our Elden Ring cover story and how the game will likely be From Software’s best game yet. We also dive into our Dying Light 2 review and offer varying perspectives on which aspects resonated with us (and those that didn’t). Lastly, in the Listener Questions segment, we share tips for folks jumping into an MMO for the first time – specifically Lost Ark, which releases in less than two weeks.

Topic of the Show:
Elden Ring is nearly three weeks away. Naturally, we asked Dan Tack to jump on the microphone to share impressions from his recent 10 hours of hands-on time. We learn more about Limgrave, why Godrick the Grafted has a fire-breathing dragon head for an arm, and extrapolate how great Elden Ring might be.
Follow along with our Elden Ring coverage here.
Dying Light 2 seems to be another video game with wildly varied scores attached to it. Andrew Reiner, Alex Van Aken, and Blake Hester discuss their differing opinions on the game’s story, but all agree the gameplay is quite good.

In this week’s Listener Questions segment, we discuss commentary tracks, video game company acquisitions, and tips for jumping into an MMORPG for the very first time.
