The choice of real world game stores has been on a decline ever since web-based retail became the preferred way of getting the latest game. Add to it the complications caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the problem of keeping brick-and-mortar stores open has become greatly exacerbated.

With all of this, video game enthusiasts have been worried about how things are turning out at their favorite game store GameStop.With GameStop greatly reducing their locations throughout America and being on the verge of bankruptcy – something unexpected happened that shook the entire stock market. The well-known chain has become a major point of discussion.

Just when all hope seemed lost – a large number of novice investors from the subreddit group WallStreetBets decided to buy as many stocks of GameStop as they possibly could leading to a surge in the price of shares of GameStop. It caused major losses to people who were betting on GameStop’s shares value to die out and gave new life to the brand on the other hand.

While the situation is still in uncertainty and the shares can still drop down to where they were before due to most stock apps blocking out the ability to purchase more GameStop shares – there is a greater chance for the company to survive than to go towards bankruptcy as of now.

And the situation is so unlikely to happen in Wall Street that there are already two movies and a TV show reportedly in development based on the topic, even though we are unaware of the conclusion at the moment. The first movie is being produced by Netflix, while MGM is producing the other one. The TV show on the other hand is being developed as a limited-series by newcomers Pinky Promise.

There are smaller-scale stories making news too, as recently a teenager who made a lot of money from the stock fiasco ended up donating a couple of Nintendo Switch consoles to a children’s hospital.

So GameStop is still in business and fortunately they’re still selling video games. Here’s the list of new arrivals available starting the first week of February.


Werewolf: The Apocalypse Earthblood

Date of Arrival: 02/04/2021

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

WerewolfWerewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood might be an unfamiliar name for most gamers, but it’s based off of the tabletop role-playing game of the same name created by White Wolf Publishing. The story is about an eco-terrorist werewolf who has been banished by his tribe and his goal is to fight against a corrupt corporation called Pentex who cause harmful pollution for the planet.

The gameplay is best described under the action role-playing genre and your character will be able to turn into a human, werewolf, and a normal wolf – each suited best for different tasks throughout the game’s quests.

Nioh Collection

Date of Arrival: 02/05/2021

Platforms: PlayStation 5

Nioh CollectionThe Nioh collection is a bundle of remastered versions of the Nioh games, which are critically-acclaimed action role-playing games developed by Team Ninja. Team Ninja is best known for the Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden games, with the latter being a popular hack ‘n’ slash franchise itself.

Both of the Nioh games are considered souls-like adventures as they focus more on difficulty and world-building instead of flashy combos. So, fans of the Souls series will greatly enjoy this collection while there’s also a lot of fun to be had for people who enjoy Ninja Gaiden.

Little Nightmares 2

Date of Arrival: 02/11/2021

Platforms: PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

NightmaresThe first Little Nightmares game is considered to be one of the most unique platformer games since it combines the elements of puzzle and survival horror together. The sequel seems to be just as great as the first game and keeps the same type of gameplay around that made it stand out back then.

With a great storyline, beautiful visuals, and intriguing gameplay – Little Nightmares II certainly holds the potential to be one of the year’s best games.

Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate Edition

Date of Arrival: 02/16/2021

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 (ships later)

Mortal Kobat 11Mortal Kombat Ultimate Edition is essentially a pack that contains every single DLC and update released for the game so far at a discounted price. It’s a great deal for those who don’t own all of that content already because the game is considered one of the best fighting games of the current generation.

Not only that, it has a very fun story-mode and has content that can last players hundreds of hours in gameplay.


That’s the latest word on what GameStop is up to in early February and what’s been going on with its stock situation. Stay tuned for more updates and the games that will be available in retail in the months to come, and we’ll see you in the next article!
