Alex, Blessing, Ian and Brandon break down all of last week’s announcements from Tokyo Game Show, including new Final Fantasy 7 Remake footage and a Resident Evil asymmetrical multiplayer game.

“How would you save Gamestop? Question is simple, you are now CEO of GameStop. How do you save the company? Or do you?

I would start investing in fewer, larger stores. I recently went to a local Smash Brothers tournament at an old warehouse and it was gaming heaven. I would make GameStop a place where you actually stop to game (sorry, i’ll see myself out after this) with 20 to 30 set ups for anything you could possibly imagine. Think of it as almost a gym, except for gaming. You can still buy and sell games, but now you have a completely new revenue source that is free of the move to a digital future.
