You didn't read that title wrong. GameStop, the video game retailer, will be publishing their first video game. Coming to us from Insomniac -- the company most known for Ratchet and Clank -- is the game Song of the Deep which is a "metroidvania-style action adventure game" (which sounds like something I've written about a couple weeks ago).
As much as I'm excited for a new game by Insomniac, I'm really surprised at the fact that they went with GameStop to publish the game. It's going to be a GameStop exclusive. Which is something I don't really understand. If it means that I can only pick it up if I leave my house and enter into one of those horrible stores (I used to work at GameStop for like 3 years and I hate the place now), then I probably won't pick it up.
That aside, the game looks really interesting. Even though I'll probably describe it as a cleaner looking version of that indie game with a super long title, it's definitely a lot different than that. It looks like the game's story is a big part of the reason why the main character is in the deep ocean.
I hope that I could digitally download this title instead of going into the worst video game store to ever have existed, though.
Song of the Deep will be released sometime during the Summer of 2016.

@InVinsybll true story: my dad named me metroidvania when he built me. but there was a broken piece of code within my databanks that gave me the ability to think. now I'm encased in human flesh. but think of the game I could have been!
this seems really cool. it's not usually the type of game I play so in reality I'd probably get it... and then end up not getting into it much which is kind of a bummer.
@MaighdlinS I absolutely hate when that happens. it takes a lot for me to pick up a game nowadays. I remember getting so hype for Assassin's Creed Unity and then just not liking it. I mean everything was there, I should have but I just didn't get into it.
that's how I felt about AC3 I really wanted to love it and I really liked the story line... but.. I hated the missions... hated them... naval battles were probably the worst thing to have come into existence for me... but I recently picked up AC Syndicate and I'm totally hooked again!
Looks interesting! But it looks pretty time consuming. It's worth the try though
