(Robbie’s note: Ignore some of the awkward photo dimensions. I’ll have to fix that later.)
I never thought I would complain about not being allowed to post about something on social media. It’s perhaps the biggest first-world problem next to, “There are too many games to play! UUUUGGGGHHH!!”
But I can finally, FINALLY, announce that I am an intern for Game Informer for the winter 2018 program!!
In a surprising move, GameStop has announced a new rental game service called PowerPass.
For $60 over a course of six months, customers can rent one game at a time as long as they want from any nearby GameStop. Titles can be selected online for pickup or from browsing in-store. At the end of the six months, customers can choose one used game to keep forever. You must also be a PowerUp Rewards member, but that can be done for free or with one of two paid memberships. Signups for Power Pass go live Nov. 19.
You’ve probably seen Pokemon GO all over your social media feeds already, or, more than likely, you already ran over someone who was aimlessly walking in the middle of a street while they were on their quest to catch ’em all.
In just a few days, PGO has already become a sensation of sorts.
