A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

The news has calmed down after last week, and the GamesBeat staff is playing a lot of games for review. That means we have a shorter episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast for you this week.

On this half-hour of power, GamesBeat reviews editor Mike Minotti talks about playing Tales of Vesperia on Switch. PC gaming editor Jeff Grubb, meanwhile, is playing Resident Evil 2 and Eco.

In the news, the co-hosts discuss Electronic Arts rebooting the Star Wars game it just rebooted. And we got some more info about why no one is talking about Artifact.

Join us, won’t you?


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
