GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
This week on GameSpot After Dark, Jake, Kallie, and Michael are joined by the incredibly talented Jessica Howard, managing editor of Uppercut, for a conversation that really runs the gamut. We talk about why Ichiban from Yakuza: Like a Dragon might very well be the best protagonist ever; Jess and Kallie discover that they both haven’t played Hitman or Alan Wake for the same hard-to-explain reason; and, of course, we tackle GameStop’s stocks.
Michael gives a spirited breakdown of what short-selling means and what’s going on with the (sigh) stonks. We should probably note that we’re not exactly finance experts, but we did a lot of research, and also we don’t really care for billionaires.
Kallie also gives an update on Animal Crossing: New Horizons, including her latest in-game achievement and the forthcoming Festivale event. Does anyone still care about Animal Crossing besides her? Who knows.
