    I did not expect to get an NES Classic today. I work in the mall, and heard that certain Thinkgeek and Gamestop locations, even ones in the mall, are going to be opened at 9am. I had opening shift, so I couldn't go. So on my lunch break around 12:30pm, I casually walked down to the Gamestop, looked at the sign listing how many NES Classics and controller they had. They had about 20 consoles and 3 controllers. Then I was about to ask them, "So, how fast did this shipment go?" ...I was greeted, "Looking for an NES Classic? We got them!" I was shocked, and looked at their neat little display of about eight consoles arranged behind the counter. They explained that most likely people were confused about the opening, at least for mall locations (since they properly open at 10am), so they were selling slower than expected. But the strip mall location down the street was said to have been mobbed, and sold out in a snap. Got the console and continued on.

    GameStop is entering selloff talks

    "Casualty" nothing, that garbage company with their awful resale practices and shilling is what led to shit like bloated collectors editions, STORE-EXCLUSIVE DLC/CONTENT, and they treat their employees like complete shit being utterly disposable. It was one of the first jobs I had it and it was Hell.

    And the lucky winner of week 1 is... Isaac (Golden Sun): A Venus Adept hailing from the village of Vale with the ability to manipulate dirt and plants, as well as a host of other Psynergy-based abilities. After an incident at Mount Aleph, Isaac sets out on a journey to uncover the truth about Alchemy, which will either bring about the end of civilization, or save it from literally falling off the edge of the world.

    Went ahead and purchased the game for launch day. I had enough in gold coins and in my shop account to cover it. Now it is time to lose sleep and drain another 100 hours of my life away. Shit is addictive as crack.

    The one I started at was a long established one that had been around since I was a kid. Back when they still had the tickets/slips for video games. That was just a standalone TRU though. Two years after I started they built the one I currently work at which is a super side by side or basically a giant Toys R Us + Babies R Us store and staff from my store and one other were combined into that one while the two older stores in the area we all came from closed down. We all helped set up the new store after all of the main construction was completed. But like your BK example, it's kind of neat being able to work at a brand new start after it was just built. Everything is just cleaner, brighter and more polished... until a few years pass XD jk

    Nintendo is way too slow with the online scene. Everyone else seems to have functional online with some sort of anti-cheat and Nintendo can't even seem to get chat or lobbies right. So far the only justifications they seem to have for their online being a paid service is renting out ancient NES games and possibly paywalling the only way to do data backups. They should have figured this all out before they started asking people to pay for the service- the hacking should come as no surprise to them as we've been doing this for decades.

    I saw this shit coming about 10 years ago and it has just finally come to fruition to where GS will probably be no more. At this point, I see no way they are going to survive. The company has a lot of internal problems and have for years. The entire gaming industry is largely against their pre-owned selling practices due to the fact they sell their used games at a premium more often than not, they take 100% of the profits, they pay no royalties, and they penalize gamers for buying new. It is so bad that more and more developers want to go purely digital just so they don't have to deal with the used game market which is hurting their sales. Then on top of that, GS employees are treated like utter shit, they don't like their job, they don't like most of their customers, they outright lie to their customers and it is encouraged by the company, they are not helpful, and more often than not are total douche bags. The entire fucking company has created a toxic culture that in return has created sub-standard business practices. Not to mention, they have refused to adapt, and people can bitch and whine about the death of "brick and mortar" stores due to e-commerce such as Amazon, but you either adapt or you fucking die. That is just the way it has always been in business. If you look at the companies that failed it is largely due to their resistance in changing or adapting to current market trends. Sol lets take Circuit City, they went under due to a lot of internal problems and their business became irrelevant long before it should have. Radio Shack was stuck back in the 1990s and never really changed, they were always just hanging on by a thread in the 2000s and their own President flat out stated that he believed the only reason they managed to stay relevant going into the 2000s were all of their specialty adapters and electronics they sold that could not easily be gotten elsewhere. Toys R Us never truly changed their business practices from the 90s and only regressed. Some say Amazon is this evil corporation intentionally destroying local stores, the truth is they are just competing like hell with virtually everyone. You have to compete and GS has been stubborn as fuck in that department. Very few gamers give a fuck about pre-owned anymore because places like Amazon have been competing very hard. That is not to include Best Buy (although they kind of shot themselves in the foot with gamers by axing the game membership program, and once mine expires I am largely done with them) and Walmart who have been doing sales, trying to make the deals sweeter with gaming to the point where most gamers would rather just get the shit from them anyways. GS likes to sell everything at fucking MSRP, they have those bloated ass Collector's Editions that cost $100 and are exclusive to their stores and then were supposed to feel as if this is a bad thing? HAHAHAHAHA (Cue Evil laugh) I am fucking happy that GS is going under and I hope in their place other companies see that "This is how you lose your business" and try to do much better. GS totally deserves what the fuck they are getting and some might be sad for their employees losing their jobs, most of those employees are going to feel relieved to be out of that fucking place and hopefully can go somewhere better.

    Well not even that. Think about these for a minute: Game console makers vs makers of games for consoles vs digital shops vs retail shops: *I create the console, I create the online shop, I sell the games, I cut out the middleman. * Well I make 3rd party games and I can create my own website to let you download your "version" of the game *Digital medium keeps better profit margins versus physical retail sales for game companies * For physical retailers you have the cost of holding inventory and purchasing inventory ++ you have already seen this play out with music and movies at retail in the last few years. If games go strictly digital download that is one thing as as long as the console has the file you can still play it ... BUT... ....Streaming games..... internet service, quality of connection, you don't truly have the game as you have to stream it from "them"
