Oh, and Kim has played Kingdom Hearts III. Then Dan Tack and Suriel Vazquez join the show to talk about playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Dark Souls Remastered.

We have a great episode for you this week, so we really hope that you <a href="http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2016/02/22/subscribe-to-the-game-informer-show-on-itunes.aspx">subscribe to the audio version</a> or tell a friend if you enjoy the show. On this episode, we're joined in-studio by Capcom's Tim Turi as well as Andrew Reiner, Kyle Hilliard, and (via Skype) the director of <a href="http://www.gameinformer.com/games/a_hat_in_time/b/playstation4/archive/2017/12/11/a-hat-in-time-game-informer-review.aspx">A Hat In Time</a> to talk about designing platforming games and why 2017 made the classic genre shine. After some great members from the community Skype in and ask some questions, we force Kyle Hilliard and Tim Turi to compete 1v1 in an intense round of video game music trivia that we affectionately call "Game that Tune".</p> <p>You can watch the video below, <a href="http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2016/02/22/subscribe-to-the-game-informer-show-on-itunes.aspx">subscribe and listen to the audio on iTunes or Google Play</a>, or <a href="https://soundcloud.com/game-informer">listen to episode 379 on SoundCloud</a>.
