We’re back from the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show, and we learned a lot about video games … and even more about ourselves. Also, we’re dead and ghosts now. It was a wild event, and we’re going to wrap it up on this week’s episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast.

Co-hosts Mike Minotti and Jeff Grubb also talk about Mario Tennis Aces and that new Sega classics collection. In the news, the Decides team breaks down the latest monthly NPD report from May. It turns out that people still like spending money on video games.
