Topics of the Week

After the cancellation of E3 2020, we discuss whether we dodged a bullet, thanks to what the show could have been. We also discuss the sheer audacity of GameStop’s actions during this difficult time.

We discuss remakes such as Final Fantasy VII Remake, Resident Evil 3, and the nature of remakes in general. We also delve into the rumors surrounding new Silent Hill games [1, 2], and Sony’s alleged attempts to buy several prominent IPs from Konami.

And much more!
