Retailer Gamestop seems to be looking ahead to the death of video game stores by purchasing web-game portal Kongregate. The site will remain under the management of founders Jim and Emily Greer following the purchase, and the deal should finalize on August 1.
In a statement CEO J. Paul Raines said, "Kongregate advances GameStop's digital strategy by providing a gaming platform for casual, mobile and browser games that can be promoted and played by our existing gamers. We welcome the Kongregate team to the GameStop family."
I suggest you celebrate this move by visiting Kongregate and wasting your day playing web games. I particulary recommend Don't Sh*t Your Pants. It's an awesome game! I made my recommendation, and now I want to hear from you guys: What games on Kongregate should I waste my day with?
