I enjoy certain cinematic games. Dead Space 2 had it's moments, as did Uncharted 2 and both of those were phenomenal in my opinion. Also classics like tetris, Kirby and Fire Emblem I do love as well. Although I hate SSBB for some reason. Can't place my finger no it. Do you have a wii or a gamecube?
The subscription to GI isn't a joke, it's not a bad magazine, the reviews can be pretty meh bit the interviews, the previews, and the fanmail is pretty good, as well as their cover stories. not to mention the subscription to GameInformer is free, in context.
No, it's been there forever, since before EB Games was taken over. You've always had the ability to guarantee the disc lol. And lets say that there wasn't. You still have seven days to play the game and see if it has issues. For the most part, issues will surface within the first few hours of the game. Not always, of course, but often.
Well.. you're wrong. Lol. I work at gamestop and I assure you there are just as many new games returned for problems as used, so not really a valid excuse. Plus the year-long warranty? It's MAXIMUM three dollars. if you can't afford that then you shouldn't be buying a game in the first place lol. Argument void.
.. You should listen to them about that "shitty service". Because it's actually a really, really good fifteen dollar investment. My boss and I talk all the time about idiots who could have made up to an extra 100$, but because they're knuckle-dragging scumbags who apparently can't do rudimentary math, they wind up with next to nothing.
Ah I see. Well, I don't much care. I take flawless condition of the games I merch out, and I try my best to make sure that they're used if I can take a used one. However obviously given your situation not every is as careful as me in that respect. Hmm. Sorry to hear :/
