On Friday night, two men stormed into a GameStop store in Montgomery County, Maryland. They ordered everyone onto the ground at gunpoint, and while employees and a husband and wife complied, the couple’s seven year-old boy started swinging punches at the robbers instead.
Sure, the items for sale in post-apocalyptic Game Store GameRaveTV built in Fallout 4 are a little different, but the vibe is exactly the same.

GameStop and Bandai Namco would really like you to preorder Dark Souls III. They made a mobile game about it called Slashy Souls. Want to play it? I wouldn’t bother.
A year’s worth of Mythical Pokémon distribution celebrating the series’ 20 year anniversary kicks off today with the original gangster, Mew. Hit up GameStop for a code to grab a level 100 version of his royal cuteness for X and Y, Alpha and Omega.
The next game from Insomniac (Ratchet & Clank, Sunset Overdrive) is called Song of the Deep. It’s an underwater metroidvania-style action-adventure that’ll be out for PC and consoles this summer. Published by GameStop, interestingly enough.

During January's sojourn to Kotaku headquarters in NYC, I stopped by the fabled Video Games New York, where I picked up a scratched but serviceable PlayStation 2 for $80. Today GameStop announced it is once again accepting trade-ins of the best-selling game system of all time. My timing sucks.
