GameSpot After Dark Ep. 78: Seize The Memes Of Production

Jess Howard of Uppercut joins Michael, Kallie, and Jake to talk about GameStop's stocks and Animal Crossing: New Horizons' latest update.


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.

Below you'll find all the necessary links to find the show on iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, and Google Play. We've also included an RSS link so you can put that into your podcast app of choice.
