This week on The Gaming Outsider podcast, we invite community member Noah Patterson back to the show to dive head first into Horizon: Zero Dawn with us while giving all of our early impressions. Also, we discuss our thoughts on the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta and Josh gives us some progress on his adventure with Nioh. News this week covers Microsoft’s new subscription program and the surprise announcement of Shadow of Mordor’s sequel. Our community topic centers around us explaining our fanaticism for certain franchises in gaming. Grab the episode now via iTunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, Google Play Music and more.
