I went to Best Buy near me and they only had 200 copies of Rock Revolution. I got a raincheck for Red Alert 3. Piss off the pope.

Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



i'm only interested in NFL head coach 09 and NBA ballers: choosen one for the PS3... quantum of solace is an intriguing possibility but, i always like to get EA's NFL games when they drop in price like this... they're decent football simulators but, i hate having to buy one for $60 every single damn year when i can wait for last years game to drop to $10... it's not exactly madden but, it's a sports strategy game... it's fun being the head coach biggrin.gif...

and i've been needing to get a basketball game for years now... it's not the traditional game but, it's still basketball, and it's 10 fucking dollars!! plus, i like the "NBA Jam"-type arcade games anyways...

hopefully they still got copies because, i'll take two games for $20 any day... or 3 games for $30...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Aaaah. So I went to Best Buy about an hour after they opened. Almost everything was sold out! Fortunately, the game I wanted, Quantum of Solace, was there. And I got extremely lucky! I managed to score the collector's edition! That comes packaged in a metallic "007" case and has a bonus disc full of "behind-the-scenes videos with actors from both the game and the motion picture." It ALSO came with a killer 007 t-shirt that I happen to be wearing atm.
I was also bummed that GH3 wasn't there, but really, been there done that.

I'm happy! biggrin.gif

The games I wanted were sold out... In a fit of rage, I killed two cats and a hobo on the way home.

I'm pretty sure someone went in there and cleaned them out of the popular titles that are now on eBay with a 100-200% markup.

I went to Walmart today with a Best Buyer flyer to get a price match. Walmart had 800 copies of every game Best Buy (right next door) was selling all marked at MSRP. I don't think this Walmart was popular with gamers, it's more of a crackhead Walmart... Anyway, the kid working in the electronics department said they weren't honoring the prices because they weren't an electronics store. I said FUCK THAT GET A MANAGER. The manager honored the price.

I finally got Red Alert 3, for only $10.

I would have gotten QoS and SCIV, but they weren't listed in the advert. I was going to get PURE (it was marked $60), but I'm not a big fan of those kind of games (even though I heard it was brilliant).

A lot of people don't have the balls to even query the price of a product let alone demand to see the manager, it just shows what you can save if you stand your ground with these corporations.

Agreed.

I've stopped taking shit from people; especially in customer service. Just asking for a manager, mentioning the shape of the economy and threatening to take your business elsewhere can get you just about anything in today's economic climate.

I traded Resistance 2 and got 13 credited to my 'GAME' store card. The first place I went offered me 5 cash or 7 credit towards another game but Stoic's post popped up in my head and I went to GAME instead.
Shop around people!
I was happy with that now my girl can put it toward The Sims 3 whenever that's out. (Shit I'm gonna need another TV when she gets that)

And another PS3! Fuck.
