2020 is not E3’s year, quite literally. After many hits to the event’s glamour, E3 2020 was officially cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. Speaking of sink or swim, Gamestop is rethinking their stores and Reggie Fils-Aimé joins their board of directors. But it’s not all bad news bears: we also have game reviews! Ali tried Xbox exclusive MMO Bless Unleashed and Leah played Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
