  1. GameStop is teaming up with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to help save kids’ lives at local children’s hospitals throughout the United States. This week, GameStop announced the new partnership that will begin taking shape this June. “GameStop has a long-standing commitment to use the Power of Gaming for Good to benefit the families in our local communities. Together with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, it is our hope to give children’ of all ages the miracle of living a better life,” said Jason Allen, head of marketing for GameStop. Beginning June 1, GameStop customers will be able to donate up to 100% of the credit value to CMN Hospitals when they trade their unused video game hardware, software, accessories, or consumer electronics in-store through the Trade for Charity program. PowerUp Rewards™ members will also be able to turn their PowerUp Rewards points into a donation to CMN Hospitals. From June 12-14, GameStop and CMN Hospitals’ gaming fundraising program, Extra Life, will be on site at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, California with a pop-up truck outside the LA Convention Center to accept video game donations. The value of the games will then be donated by GameStop to help sick and injured kids treated at CMN Hospitals. Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon benefitting CMN Hospitals. This September, GameStop’s 3,800 stores throughout the U.S. will be hosting a fundraising campaign where customers will be able to donate $1 or more when they checkout in-store or on GameStop.com. Funds raised by each store will benefit the respective local CMN Hospital, allowing stores the opportunity to serve the children and families treated in their own communities. GameStop’s new partnership with CMN Hospitals aligns with their commitment to corporate social responsibility and their vision to use the Power of Gaming for Good. Since 2007, GameStop and its more than 40,000 associates around the world have raised and/or donated more than $17 million to various external charities focused on youth-wellbeing and empowerment. “We are thrilled to be partnering with GameStop to help further our mission to save and improve the lives of local kids. The funds raised by GameStop’s initiatives will impact over 10 million children treated each year at local CMN Hospitals throughout the country and we are very grateful for their support,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

  3. The release of Prey is little over a month away and the hype machine has begun to chug along at full speed. As part of a PR push for Prey, Bethesda and Gamestop have organized a science-fiction film festival with Alamo Drafthouse featuring a selection of classic movies that inspired the development team behind Prey. The Inspirations of Prey - Film Fest begins on April 4 and runs until April 27. These events will take place at Alamo Drafthouse theater locations around Texas, California, Colorado, Virginia, and New York. Each week a new film will be shown. The line-up consists of MOON, Starship Troopers, Total Recall, and The Matrix. Each ticket for a screening comes with a poster from Mondo, a slick graphic design company that approaches pop-culture with an artistic eye. You can see if the festival will be coming to a location near you and buy tickets on the Alamo Drafthouse website. On top of that, there will be small events at the theaters from iam8bit and Gamestop that will give attendees the opportunity to play Prey before release. These special fan events are happening at the locations and times below: Austin at the Alamo Drafthouse – South Lamar at The Highball Tuesday, April 4 5pm San Francisco at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – New Mission at Bear vs Bull Tuesday, April 11 5pm New York at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – City Point at House of Wax Wednesday, April 19 5pm Los Angeles at The Regent Theater Tuesday, April 25 9pm These events will require an RSVP beforehand, which you can do here, and admission is not guaranteed, so get there early if you plan on going. Prey releases on May 5 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

  5. A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV was initially offered as a pre-order exclusive for those who chose to pre-purchase Final Fantasy XV from Gamestop. Since then, players have been unable to obtain and play the retro brawler based on the Final Fantasy XV universe. Square Enix announced that they would be releasing A King's Tale to all players for free on March 1. Like much of the extended universe around Final Fantasy XV, A King's Tale offers an opportunity to deepen the backstory of Square Enix's main title. Players take on the role of Regis, the father of Final Fantasy XV's protagonist Noctis, as he tells his young son a bedtime story about events that took place 30 years before Final Fantasy XV begins. Players must defend the kingdom of Insomnia from attacking monsters alongside long-time allies like Cid, Weskham, and Clarus. Rather than being another RPG, A King's Tale plays more like a brawling Streets of Rage than a typical Final Fantasy game. Players must make good use of combos, blocking, magic, and summons to make progress. It's not a terribly long experience, clocking in at an average of two to three hours, but it's certainly not too shabby for a free game with a charming aesthetic. Players will be able to download A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV on March 1.

  7. 35 GameStop stores will be closing in March of this year and all of them are going to be in Puerto Rico. First reported today by CyberboxPR, the closures are being attributed to the worsening economic situation in Puerto Rico that has led to an increase in taxes from 7% to 11.5%. While there isn't any hard data on how many employees will be affected by these closures, some are estimating upwards of 400 employees will be left without jobs. GameStop cites this as a purely business decision driven by increased economic pressure, which could be attributed to the increased taxation and the under performance of key titles in 2015 like Halo 5: Guardians, Star Wars Battlefront, and Assassin's Creed Syndicate (not that these didn't sell well on the whole, but digital transactions made up a larger portion of their sales than GameStop had expected). GameStop's director of public relations, Joey Mooring, released a statement to Gamespot clarifying the decision to close the Puerto Rico locations: Given the ongoing business challenges and increased governmental restraints we have experienced in Puerto Rico, GameStop has made the business decision to close all of its video game stores and operations located on the island. As a result, GameStop will be exiting the Puerto Rican market by the end of March 2016. Until that time, we will continue to conduct normal business operations. Puerto Rico will be losing its only dedicated gaming retailer, leaving residents with fewer options when it comes to obtaining games. Many have pointed out that the remaining options aren't terribly promising. For those looking to get their hands on games in Puerto Rico, Amazon, Best Buy, Toys R' Us, Walmart, and digital purchases appear to be the best retailers for gamers. However, there are drawbacks to each seller for potential customers. Amazon shipping costs can be prohibitively expensive for people as Prime does not ship to Puerto Rico. Best Buy, which does not match prices with mainland US locations, and Toys R' Us have a limited number of locations that not all island residents can access. Walmart is rumored to be pulling out of Puerto Rico soon due to the increased economic pressure, too. What is happening in Puerto Rico to lead to this decision? Essentially, the island commonwealth experienced a long period of people investing in its debt by buying its uniquely tax-exempt bonds and locating their businesses and manufacturing facilities on the island for special tax credits. However, about twenty years ago, the tax credits began phasing out and a few years later Puerto Rico was hit with the recession. The recession made investors more skeptical of investing in the bonds and fewer people participated in the once thriving tourism industry. This caused a lot of the money Puerto Rico had made from the booming investment years to dry up and leave the government with billions owed to creditors that have trapped it in a worsening spiral of debt. Because of its unique position as a territory of the United States, the tax code as it exists today has no mechanism for the government of Puerto Rico to declare bankruptcy, which means that the only ways of escaping the debt spiral is to pay off the debt or refuse to pay. Refusing to pay Puerto Rico's bondholders could prove to be disastrous, as that would lead to lawsuits which could put payments to bondholders ahead of payments to school districts, law enforcement, and other public departments. In an attempt to reform, taxes have been hiked across the board in Puerto Rico and a delicate game of juggling funds between necessary debt payments has kept the territory afloat. However, that hasn't been enough. Only a handful of days ago, the governor of Puerto Rico defaulted on millions of dollars to lower-priority creditors in order to pay the highest-priority creditors and the lawsuits have begun rolling in. This is the situation deemed by GameStop to be too financially risky to continue operations under and has Walmart thinking twice about remaining open. For a more in-depth and easily digestible rundown of the situation in Puerto Rico, I'd recommend this excellent write up by Matthew Yglesias.
