Shopping for MvC3 and Tactics Ogre on PSP

By: goukijones Feb 15, 2011 | 450 Views | 9 Comments

This is why I don't want to leave the house to buy video games. Best Buy is stingy with the pre-order bullshit now, a video game specialty store doesn't even know what Tactics Orge is and GameStop? Really? Really? lol.

I woke up early this morning hoping to beat whatever crowd might be at the Best Buy trying to get MvC3. I already pre-ordered one from Amazon for the Contest winner. You can only get one coupon per order, so my plan was to go to Best Buy and use some coupons I had and just buy the Special Edition straight up.

Well big shocker, Best Buy didn't have any Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Special Editions, in fact they barely had any regular versions. When I asked an employee if they have any SE's in the back she told me they were only for pre-order. Another costumer was standing there while another employee was calling Best Buy's all over town to see if they had any extra. I was intrigued, I said: "Hey if the Best Buy down the street has one, I'll go over there and get it."

This other guy wanted two for some reason, he also said he wanted it for Frank West. What a Jimmy. While standing there and listening to this guy call the other Best Buy's, at least 10 people came into the video game section asking for the Special Edition.

One guy even questioned: "How can you be sold out, you opened 10 minutes ago."

In which the employee responded that Best Buy only took pre-orders for the Special Edition. I watched Best Buy lose at least 10 sales while I stood there for 20 minutes, including mine. So fuck it I left, there is a private game shop, a Walmart and a GameStop still in this plaza. BTW I also wanted to pick up Tactics Ogre today and when I asked the Best Buy employee for that, he pulled up a computer screen that showed not 1 Best Buy in town ordered that game. Nubfarm.

The adventure continues. I went over the privately owned store to see if they had the Tactics or the MvC3 SE. The Jimmy behind the counter didn't even know what Tactics Ogre is and told me they don't usually order games like that. Like what? A Square Enix RPG? Jimmy? I asked him about the MvC3 SE and he told me that the SE is a Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop exclusive. More false information. The name of this store is Game Haven in Las Vegas and it should be renamed to the Palace of n00bs.

Ok fuck it then, I'll go to the GameStop. Of course GameStop won't sell me the SE, I can't believe this pre-order bullshit still happens. Especially on a major release with bonus content that is only $10 more on top of the regular edition. Order a extra few for the Jimmys that stumble in who don't have a pre-order. I then inquired about the Tactics Ogre and the GameStop employee told me that he hadn't received the shipment and that I should come back around 1pm. Ok I'm out. Walmart time.

At Walmart I couldn't find the Tactics Ogre either. They had the Marvel Vs Capcom 3 SE, but it was for the PS3 and I want the Xbox version. Foiled again! I asked the cross eyed Jimmy working in the department about the Tactics Ogre and he walked me back over the wall of games. Now I searched it thoroughly before I asked him, but I guess he just wanted to make sure.

"Well it's not on the wall, let me check the computer." He says.  "Online only."

I just don't get it. Order some more games. Is it really that bad that you can't sell a minimum order so you can have a few extra copies at least on launch day. And who the fuck doesn't have Square Enix RPG PSP titles available. Today was a reminder why I have fallen in love with ordering games online and getting release day delivery. I don't have to look for shit, I don't have to drive to shit and I don't have to deal with nub-ass-cross-eyed-don't-give-a-shit-non-gaming-retail-employees.

Wait, it's not over yet. I have one more juicy tidbit for you. Driving out of the parking lot I saw the UPS man at the GameStop. Sweet I thought, I won't have to order Tactics Ogre online and possible miss out on having it for my trip. So I flipped a bitch and parked that muthafucka sideways.

Of course I walked back into the GameStop like we just had a conversation about the Tactics Ogre, but the Jimmy looked like he didn't recognize me. I asked him the Tactics was in those boxes.

"Probably, but it's gonna take me an hour to open them." The GameStop employee replied.

"An hour? Really? I'll wait a few minutes for you to open them." I replied.

"Well I don't know what box it's in." He said.

I told him: "It's probably in that long skinny box that looks like it's full of PSP games." Two minutes later he had it out and I was paying. I didn't have my GameStop card with me so I had to use my phone number. Spoiler alert! My card expired last month, would I like to renew for $14.95? No thank you, but what about my points that were on my card.

"You lose your points if you don't reactivate the card." The GameStop employee told me.

So GameStop has a rewards program for shopping there, but you have to pay for it. WTF. And instead of sending me any coupons or notifications in the mail about the card expiring, I get nothing and lose what little points I probably did have. GameStop fail. It amazes me even more that these stores continue to pop up. People gotta get hip and order online. Save gas, Save time and it's stress free. Just hope there isn't a blizzard somewhere holding up your package.

Thanks for reading my blithering blathering blog/rant. Don't be a Jimmy!

what place do you walk into that you can't leave without buying?

By: hoho23 Aug 4, 2010 | 224 Views | 10 Comments

I can't go into a best buy with out buying something. everytime i walk in there i end up coming out close to broke and with something in my hands.

Somthing about Best Buy i dont know if the air filters are laced with crack or they have a magnets nside my wallet but i cant go a week without stepping inside a BB store and not walk out empty handed. Jimmy will tell you me and him would go a few times a week when he was in Miami and we would leave with shit we probably didnt need, made no sense. but i do love that store and there warranty's on most items are second to none! anyone have a place they go to that has half there yearly pay?
