2322  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What are some good fantasy movies? on: February 10, 2006, 03:53:05 PM
Deathstalker series. I have only seen 3 & 4 but they were good if cheesy 80's swords and sorcery.

In one of the later game levels of Sin you were mucking around in Elexis's mansion I believe and saw her in the bathroom camera doing a solo number on herself.

I got lucky when I got my 1.5 at a Walmart here in GR. That was Black Friday (when I pricematched from Meijer for $200. biggrin )
2326  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox Live Update - I'm rantingly pissed! on: January 31, 2006, 12:30:42 AM
Quote from: "Dimmona"
Wow, this is really the 'fix all known problems with Xbox360/Live' patch that they hyped it to be.  :roll:

    * Improvements to the Xbox Guide.

    * Option to retain your saved games when you delete a profile.

    * Increased accuracy of "last time played."

    * Network configuration improvements for Xbox Live members in the Netherlands.

    * More detailed messaging for unreadable disk or region errors.
We get it. You are a Nintendo fanboi. We don't care that you don't like anything else.

I just hated the character you played as, the setting, the enemies and the way the game played.


So...you hated the entire game smile That would have been easier to say.
Really.

Save yourself the trouble of typing all that.
2328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY GET A NEW PC!!!!!!!!!! (sorry for the caps!!!!!!!!!) on: January 21, 2006, 05:30:49 AM
It's worth the $20 for it most everywhere. May be able to get it at Best Buy for 15 after one of thier coupons $5 off 20 or more, but you would have to look around the store to see if they still have them.

Qbe, I do see that you are not located far from me. Try the GS on Alpine Ave next to Toys'R'Us next time. I'm there on the weekends generally.


Hey Kagath, you're not the guy with the Moogle tattoo, are you?
Heh, nope.

2335  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Something I hate about Gamestop on: January 20, 2006, 12:57:31 AM
One of the reasons that I like Gamestop over EB is that we don't usually try to put a bunch of useless stickers on the cases. Generally a price tag, barcode, and that's usually it if it's from us. None of those big obnoxious round yellow stickers everywhere.

Occasionally there will be a small round sticker on the opening mainly a way for us to see if a 'new opened' (*see my post above*) copy was opened by the customer. We had a lot of that stuff that was sold during the holiday season and put those on there if we did not reseal the package for the customer. If that seal is obviously not broken or tampered with then the store will generally not hassle you if you are looking to return or exchange it. It's pretty easy to tell if it was moved so YMMV if you try to open it and then return it.
2336  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Something I hate about Gamestop on: January 20, 2006, 12:03:52 AM
Misguided is correct. We can and occasionally do check out new stuff. Usually wait and prefer used.

We do also open/'gut' new stuff for display if we don't have more than one new copy. If the customer doesn't like that something was the last one, we also have a 'opened/shopworn' discount option that shows up on the receipt. Usually I don't have a problem with people not liking it as I always show the customer that the disc is in new shape when I remove it from the sleeve and place it in the case.

We can also replace the case with a different one if it is marked up or damaged as well, just ask as we normally have some in the back.

Thankfully there are multiple places surrounding our store that we can point people to when they don't like this.


As a side note, I also have lots of people come in and expect a used game to look brand new and yet still want the 90 warranty and discounted price. They will stand around and inspect it with a microscope practically for scratches. We do get in the occasion resurfaced disk (have a large 'R' on the rear UPC sticker) and also ones that are still sealed.

And for the love of the gods, keep your receipts.

Condensed version:

Gamestop and EB Games suck. They are run by assholes that dont know shit about gaming and only care about getting your money.
Newsflash!

Welcome to corporate America! Thanks for stopping by!


Edit:
Yes I do happen to work at a GameStop here in GR. Yes, what he says is pretty much the truth. There are a couple points that don't apply everywhere like our store, but the majority of it is good advice. You would be suprised how many people don't have the brains to figure out to hang on to thier receipts or even attempt to read them when they do have them.
2340  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Way behind.... Metroid Prime (and Echoes!) on: December 31, 2005, 03:49:07 AM
Is it for sure only $10? I was reading at CheapAssGamer and they didn't make it sound as though that was true.
2341  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Way behind.... Metroid Prime (and Echoes!) on: December 30, 2005, 04:47:00 AM
It was probably just an old tag. You should have asked about the price. Probably 17.99 or 14.99.

2343  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Circle lines on Xbox discs - normal? on: December 15, 2005, 03:29:43 AM
NO the drive just started going bad and it's eating the disc. Take the system back and show them the disc as well. If they are all grouped in one spot like that it means that the laser casing is starting to get too close. Mine was doing the same thing. I had to take it apart and fix the protective case on the laser.

Take it back and get another one.
2344  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anything new on Team Fortress 2? on: December 15, 2005, 03:24:09 AM
I agree about ET:TF. The size threw me off when I tried it as well. TFC kicks mucho ass. Too bad it's not as popular anymore.

So I guess Half-Life 2's release just went right over everyone's head?
Not at all. They just promised the fans that they would release information about TF2 real soon after it's release. Yes I know 'soon' and Valve do not go together but something in a year I would hope would not be too much...

No.
2347  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox 360 scratched disc solution on: December 12, 2005, 09:49:02 PM
Here's one:

Don't pick the stupid thing up and move it intentionally while its running like the Llama guys did...

Edit:
Think about it, what do those guys provide? Parts. When you get panicky and start messing with the system and it does screw up where are you most likely going to go to get the parts? Other than the warranty issues, I'm sure most of us have opened the original Xbox for some reason or another. We will do the same to this eventually. It sounds like they are just looking for ways to get people to spend money on thier site. They are looking hard apparently for the little rubber pads...

No proof?! Have you forgotten about THIS picture?  :wink:

I hope not. I still have some of the old media movies of it on a hard drive somewhere. That clip, the ammo loading for mounted gun, the lipsynching where guys are parachuting down in the background, and other stuff. I would have been elated if it was looking like that and released at that time. We would probably be on Team Fortress '05 by now.
2349  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anything new on Team Fortress 2? on: December 12, 2005, 06:11:40 AM
Chances are that it has been quietly cancelled with the hopes that the fans would have forgotten about it. They keep claiming that it is still being worked on, but have shown no proof of it at all.

Meh, I'll believe it when I read it. I used to get it for the longest time, but the amount of quality content compared to the mindless crap that they put in there to try and be funny was getting pretty small. And they took forever to even offer a DVD version. I would have probably kept up my sub if that had been offered when it ran out.

Question about the controllers:

How do the sticks feel? Do the have the same tension as the S controllers? I've never seen a 3rd party one that had the same firmness. Including the overrated Logitech wireless ones.
