Pre-Order Mortal Kombat right now and get this exclusive DLC from Gamestop.com.
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
Original story link from GreensevilleSun.com http://www.greenevillesun.com/story/312924 (has a pic of the dude)
Let’s buy a game! Wait.. You can’t do what!?!?
What’s up guys? Rei, Number 7 in the World, here with something in mind.
Do you pre-order games? Yea? Where at and why?
The thing is, if you pre-order it from GAMESTOP, you get something special. In this case, Battlefield Bad Company 2 Squad pack. Why would EA’s marketing team make a choice of isolating the other dealers with this game? More importantly, the people who buy games via this site! What’s the point of buying a game and having to wait a whopping 30 DAYS for the CONTENT ALREADY onthe disk!? This, to me, does NOT make sense what so ever!! The same strategy was implemented in Army of Two: 40th day (Also from EA.) Reserved this game and you would’ve gotten the equivalence of Halo ODST'S and Gears 2, Fire Fight mode and Hoarde mode respectively. But those where already on the disk!!
Why isolate the GAMERS from buying your game and not get the full benefit from it?! It’s like having a girlfriend but you can’t touch her until the following year, because she’s doesn’t have red hair. Does this make sense to you?
So tell me, what do you think about this?

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!

Gamestop is taking pre-orders for a Replica of the Retro Lancer weapon from Gears of War 3. Check the details to find out how you can get a $20 discount on it.
Dubbed the Retro Lancer during the Lambent Invasion, the Pendulum Wars Lancer Assault Rifle was the preceding model to the Lancer Assault Rifle. Used primarily in the Pendulum Wars as the COG soldier’s primary choice weapon, it was abandoned about a year after Emergence Day because the weapon was ineffective to the Locust Horde’s fighting tactics. However, following the Sinking of Jacinto when supplies started becoming sparse, the Retro Lancer started cropping up in fighting forces once again.
The NECA Retro Lancer replica will cost you $99.99 on its own or $20 off with the Gears of War 3 standard, Collector's and Epic Editions. Gears of War 3 is out on 20th September, 2011. Details:
- Created from the actual 3D data used by Epic Games in the Gears of War 3 video game
- Over 3.5 Feet in Length
- Trigger Activates Machine Gun Sound Effect
- Hand Painted with weathered and battle worn detail

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition is no longer listed on the website and not available to pre-order in the store.
When I picked up my Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 I engaged in the regular video game banter with the clerk. Seeing what he knew and or what was good. He kinda mumbled something about the Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition no longer available for pre-order. I said what? That game doesn't come out for two months, I never heard this story. I read the frickin' news everyday!
So I immediately grabbed the closet iphone and went on the website. Sure enough you can't find it on their website. So I went to the Best Buy website and they had it listed. Drove over to the Best Buy in person ... grabbed the pre-order box and took up to the counter and pointed to prestige pre-order on the back and told the girl I want that one rite dere! At this point my reciept says Prestige, so I will take that. We'll see what happens down the road.
For those of you Jimmys that want the Prestige order I suggest you get your head out of your ass and find out wtf is going on in your neighborhood.

11/14/2014 6-9PM GameStop on Eastern & Serene. Just off the 215
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.

Pre-order Halo 3: ODST from your home and pick up in the store!

CG trailers are beautiful. They're also pointless. Save it for the next consoles Jimmy. Show me what the actual game looks like ... at least a little.
You Jimmys tell me what's up with this game. I played the first Saint's Row and hated it. The second one came out during a time I was playing something else - probably Halo - and didn't spark any interest. I'll be paying attention to see what happens with Saints 3, but until then: Not Hyped! This trailer certainly is cool.Read full story...
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!
