There's only one way to GUARANTEE your access into the Gears of War 3 Beta at this point. A press release states that the beta is filling up and all requests for codes may not be filled. Leave a comment for a chance to win one of our codes. (if we get any)
Oh the goodness you are missing right now Jimmy. Don't worry, it's not like there are a million people playing Gears 3 right now. @therealcliffyb has been giving them away all day, over the Twitter and even in person. A few other employees from Epic have been passing them out, websites and I'm sure if you know somebody at a GameStop, you might even have one too.
We've been trying to get some for a few days, but we have been assured that the codes are very limited. Here's a tidbit from the email blast some press just received.
As you can imagine, we’ve received an overwhelming number of requests for beta tokens recently. Due to limited supply, unfortunately we can’t provide tokens to everyone at this time, but we’ve noted your request and will follow up closer to the beta launch on April 25 if we’re able to accommodate.
So we're keeping our fingers crossed for right now in hopes that we get some codes to share with you. Stick with Gouki.com and if you want a code, leave a comment, we'll do the best we can. I'm sure the more comments we get the better the chance we get at getting any codes at all.
With all that said and you don't believe in luck, you can buy your way in, by Pre-Ordering ANY version of Gears of War 3 from GameStop.com.
Get ready to jump back in the action with Delta Squad beginning this April by pre-ordering “Gears of
War 3” online at www.gamestop.com/gearsofwar3 or from any conveniently located GameStop store.* Fans can pre-order one of the three distinct “Gears of War 3” editions -- Standard ($59.99 USD), Limited ($79.99) and Epic ($149.99) -- and gain access to three weeks of multiplayer beta action on Xbox LIVE, beginning April 25.**
You can bet your sweet ass Gears of War 3 is going to be a lot of fun.

EBGames.com and Gamestop.com says that if you purchase the collector's edition for $69.99 you will be able to download two playable DLC Characters — Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine.
We are all ready to get our hands on Marvel vs Capcom 3. Most of us have been waiting 10 years to do so. With Marvel vs Capcom 3 just around the corner, I've been checking up on it as much as possible. It seems that EBGames.com and Gamestop.com have the first collectors edition of the game available for pre order. With a price tag of $69.99 that is solid deal. Seeing as every new collectors edition nowadays cost $99.99!
The best part is that the collectors edition comes with 2 downloadable characters Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath! Now I can have my complete Resident Evil Team (Chris, Wesker, and Jill)
Check out what will be in the collectors edition below.
• Steelbook case featuring exclusive art work.
• Comic/Art book- A 12-page prologue comic, written by Marvel writer Frank Tieri, plus campaign art and a curated selection of fan art.
• 1-month Subscription to Marvel Digital Comics, providing unlimited online access to Marvel content.
• People who pre-order through GameStop will receive MvC3 console decals created by Fathead. Also, character cards with a move list and descriptions.
Is anyone going to grab this collectors edition? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
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!

Bigger weapons, better gameplay, the Conduit series is the official FPS of the Nintendo Wii. Check out these GameStop Limited Edition Exclusives.
- 44-page art book featuring a rich selection of concept art and design development insights into Conduit 2's science fiction world, weapons, and enemies.

- The "Gold Destroyer Armor" multiplayer skin based on the lead character's primary armor.
Easy to do!
I got a text message when it was in the store and picked it up with just my ID.
You don't have to pay for until you pick it up the, when you do it online it only does a $5.00 Dollar hold on your Debit/CC. This totally saves you a trip to EBGames or Gamestop to JUST pre-order a game.
Don't be a Jimmy!
Pre-order Halo 3: ODST from your home and pick up in the store!
Jan 4th Thursday Steven Paul Archer 33 yrs olds broke into Gamestop and took $288.55 in cash and $5,342 in merchandise from the store. But it wasn;t a simple break-in. Archer actually did not directly break into Gamestop, this is where it gets intresting. He broke into a Vacant building next-door and then tunneled into Gamestop through the wall! He was arrested Jan 13nth. To get the full story from the original source you have to $ubscribe, screw that, luckily the internets has had a little bonus info on it, strangely Gamestop workers arn't releasing much info on the situation. This along with the 2 armed gunmen robbing Gamestop last year and taking 100 copies of unreleased COD BlackOps gets me thinking....damn how far are people willing to go for gaming. The thousands of dollars worth of stolen goods is what really interests me and how he transported this crap. What do you guys think about game-related robberies and this story in particular? And please add more info if you find any and leave a comment

Normally I have no problem with Gamestop, but their power up rewards program is really starting to get on my nerves.
Alright, I'm a member of the Power Up Rewards PRO program, and I think it's pretty nifty. I've redeemed my points for some things in the past and everything worked out fine. Until more recently. I redeemed a 11,500 for a LOZ shirt which is no laughing matter and the one they sent me wasn't the one pictured it was slightly different, but just enough so to be irritating, and they wouldn't issue me refund without returning the shirt. Okay, no big deal it's still a cool shirt so I just kept it. But what I've found out in the last couple of days is really sort of pissing me off.
If you guys didn't know the guys at PUR sent out coupons for the PS3 to get you $100 off. And they're completely legit. I work at GameStop and we've had a couple come in they work all fine and dandy, and they come straight from the PUR website so there's no problem there, but I DIDN'T GET ONE! I want a PS3 and this would be the best way to get it.
So being a little aggravated I sent PUR an email asking why I didn't get one, and this is word for word exactly what went down in my email inbox.
I heard you guys were giving away $100 off of PS3 coupons, and I didn't get one. You guys gave a bunch of them to people who probably won't even use them, but I would can I please get one. My account number is.**** **** **** **** ***.
Hello, Be advised that there are certain criteria the card holder must have met: *You must be a PRO card holder. *Must have PS3 preferences listed in their PowerUp profile. *Must have transaction information detailing PS3 related purchases. *Must have listed you own a PS3 in your profile. If you have met these requirements for the coupon please reply to this e-mail stating that you have met the requirements for the coupon. Best Regards, Alvina GameStop Customer Service PowerUp Rewards www.poweruprewards.com
Why would you be only giving away PS3 coupons to people that already have them?! that makes no sense. People that already have them are not going to want to buy a new one. Your system is completely stupid. If you're trying to move stock for the new line of PS3 's coming in this is NOT the way to do it.
Hello, The $100.00 Playstation promotion was only sent out to a targeted group of people who DO NOT have Playstation games or Playstation console in their profile. This was only for a marketing trial. There is currently no way for us to regenerate the coupon. If you have any further concerns on this situation please contact customer support. Best Regards, Alvina GameStop Customer Service PowerUp Rewards www.poweruprewards.com
You just completely contradicted yourself
Be advised that there are certain criteria the card holder must have met: *You must be a PRO card holder. *Must have PS3 preferences listed in their PowerUp profile. *Must have transaction information detailing PS3 related purchases. *Must have listed you own a PS3 in your profile. If you have met these requirements for the coupon please reply to this e-mail stating that you have met the requirements for the coupon. And you ARE customer support. That's why I contacted you in the first place. Please get your story straight and tell me why I didn't get one. According to your first email I don't meet the requirements, but according to your second one I do. So which is it?
Just to make the point that they contradicted themselves it was the same person that sent all the emails. I haven't gotten a reply to this last one yet, and if my experience with my shirt told me anything it's that I won't get one. What do you guys think? Should I keep pressing the matter and call customer service on the phone? keep sending tons of pissed of emails? Or just drop the matter entirely.
So, much to my surprise they have replied to my last email, although it was a different person this time.
Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for contacting us. I am very sorry for the confusion and any trouble this may have caused. Unfortunately the $100 Sony PS3 coupon was only sent to a target group of customers who met the following criteria: ? Indicated not owning a PS3 in their ?Gamer Preferences? on their online Power Up Rewards account ? Did not have any transactions or purchases of PS3 consoles, accessories or games in any GameStop store or GameStop.com ? Did not indicate a PS3 item in the Game Library under ?I Want, I Have, or I Had? Please note that meeting the criteria did not guarantee a coupon. We cannot resend this coupon but we do encourage you to be sure you have accurately answered all the questions on your ?Gamer Preferences? as we do base our Marketing targets on this information. Best Regards, Rachel GameStop Customer Service PowerUp Rewards www.poweruprewards.com
So.. either the first person to email me was a complete idiot, or they're just trying to cover themselves by making it seem that way.

Catherine could be coming to the U.S this year.
This may not be too exciting for most of you, but it's a small glimmer of hope for some. Atlus did say "No plans for U.S release" a few days ago for Catherine. But on the Gamestop site they listed the game to be released July 26th published by Atlus U.S! The page has been pulled down by Gamestop but Google Cache still has it. Check it out here-
To speculate even more Atlus newsletter sent this a week ago,
which probably isn't related, but we can assume stuff. Will you make a U.S release if we still like you? Please let it be the original game ( JP players complained it was TOO HARD, they released a patch lowering the difficulty >_<)
Could we be seeing our psychotic platformer hitting the States? Or was this some sort of strange fuck up? Or maybe zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz? Leave your commnets below, don't be a jimmy.
Walrus confirmed the games release! And I got this in a email
