Hi guys.

<--- Newbie - Posts: 1

This is so depressing.

I was already having a really bad week as a PC gaming nut because my local Gamestop dismantled their PC section and stuck it on a tiny, pathetic metal rack in the middle of the store. When the store opened, they had all the PC game boxes right at the front when you walked in. Over the years, they moved the section into the back corner on 3 shelves, then 2, then 1. Tolerable since the boxes shrunk, but hardly desirable.

Now, as of last week, I have to browse new PC games by their spines (ugh) and all the boxes are empty (double ugh). I bought Port Royale 2 (tons of fun by the way) and they made me wait like a shmuck while they went to the storage room and got the box contents and put them in then handed me a mangled box. It looked like they sliced open the plastic sticker on top with a rusty tuna can. I collect boxes!

Meanwhile the walls of the store are filled with console games. Fucking used gameboy games are sitting where my new PC titles used to sit. So now, on that very same week, I (might have) lost my favorite PC gaming forum (I think I had in the neighborhood of 14,000 posts over there) and I'm forced to join... wait for it... CONSOLE Gold.

Huge <sigh>. Really bad confluence of events.

God knows I love console games, but they're a distant second to PC gaming which will always be #1 in my heart.

If no good news surfaces re:GG and we all end up migrating over here, I guess I'll get used to it. But right now, I don't wanna. All I wanna do is whine and pout.  frown

On the plus side, it's good to have a new batch of smilies to work with. My favorite is this catbutt with dangly turd:  :idea:  

Also on the plus side, it's great to see Mr. Fed!


Y'know, that sounds like the Gamestop where I was at the other day, except I couldn't find PC games -at all-.  EB at least has about 12 feet of computer software available.  

Makes me wonder if it's a corporate thing with Gamestop, or if you're near where I am smile

Gamestop in Waco, TX was the only place I found any, and that's where I bought it.

3205  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / [Discussion only] So, are we going to do a PIFF thread? on: October 09, 2004, 06:18:34 AM
I'm interested, of course, but I can't remember what all I have on PIFF.  It'd be really nice if we could get at least the last thread ported over somehow so that people don't have to start over on their karma.  But that's just me.  Not that I can't get the karma back slywink

I'd offer to take the Bucs, but my hours are wonky, so I'm not sure I should smile
