Welcome back to The Game Informer Show! On this episode we get to unpack Ben Reeves' latest adventure where he got to play several hours of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II on the PlayStation 4. After that we compare two games clearly inspired by From Software's Dark Souls: Code Vein and The Surge 2. After some wonderful community emails, in the back half of the show Andy McNamara, Andrew Reiner, and Matt Miller weigh in on the surprising launch of Apple Arcade and what it means for the game industry and mobile microtransactions.
