Can we get a FUCKING GameStop thread going here?
Why do people hate Gamestop anyway whenever I go the people seem nice and like similar vidya as I do....
>10 minutes ago
>Go to Gamestop to try to get Smash early
>Talk to the dude for like 40 minutes. Trying to butter that ass up.
>Ask him if he'll get me a copy of Smash early.
>"I dunno man, I can get in trouble"
>Tell him I'll reserve 5 games from him right then to get it early.
>"Why not?"
>As he's ringing me up, ask him when his next off day is. We can chill and play Smash.
>"Next Tuesday man. That sounds fun."
>Tuesday that Gamestop will lose 5 reserves.

Fucking Gamestop?
Too lazy to green text on phone

Call local GameStop
Ask if they'll have a midnight launch for smash
They say no but they will have one for the next cod
Hang up
Few days later Nintendo posts a list of every GameStop in burger land hosting a midnight launch
Literally every GameStop in LA will have one but the one I go to

I dunno man. I just asked him. Seemed cool enough to do it. Said he wouldn't ring it out until tomorrow. I guess they didn't have a midnight?

Either way I'm playing now and it's worth it.

He's off that day. Don't have to worry about actually hurting his numbers since he was a bro enough to do it. There's also an ass who works there so if it's him it'll be a win/win.
The twist is, he was asking for Bloodborne in the first place, not for it on PC.
>in burger land

Why would they announce launches for GameStop hostings in Germany? I'm confused.

From last night's thread.
Where on Earth do you live?

- Overpriced new games
- Used game prices that are higher than retail on Amazon.com
- Instead of ringing up your order, the clerk spends five minutes trying to sign you up for GameStop's creditcard/Game Informer/pre-orders to games that will arrive by the dozen.
- The awful selection of games
- The hygiene of other customers

Anyone mind enlightening me on what he meant by the "drop rate of those pants"?

You're pretty dense

In MMOs or RPGS some enemies have chances of dropping specific loot, the percentage of this chance is known as the drop rate.
>niggers in the food court

Dude she saved you from a guaranteed stabbing. Based dusty cunt.
how the fuck would anyone know what that was suppose to mean unless you play an RPG/MMO..?

yeah, he's the dense one anon.
that's why I can't wait until I'm old so I can call everyone a nigger and no one would care
Might as well post this here.

I was a GameStop store manager for the last 8 years. I quit last month. Ask me anything? Literally anything, I don't owe them shit.

I don't play those games and I still caught the joke. There's no need to get defensive, anon. It's okay to admit you didn't understand.
Whoa calm down there, maybe you should play less FPS games, buddy

Saying "I can't afford anything else" seems to work pretty quickly.
Offer me $100. Pulled the bill out of his wallet and everything. I said no. Didn't wanna get fired (at the time).

I saw one of my employees get offered a blowjob from a buck tooth trailer park bitch for a free Wii game. Not even new, like some $20 used game. He said no thank you.

True story, I made another one on yesterday's Gamestahp Thread if anyone's interested in reading it again.

Please refer to this >>266278869

Keep thinking that because people aren't as completely apathetic as you that they aren't "real" gamers though kid, it's amusing.
that's you, isn't it anon?
Wow just wow.
yeah, not all of gamestops are bad, but my local one is completely employed by fat asshats. Really, everytime I have been in there they were cuntheads. I stopped going there and I preordered Smash 3d at the gamestop on the other end of town.
Your argument would make more sense if you weren't buying a PS3 to play games
My fedora is tipping herself
Oh, and if that doesn't work, it's almost always "GamestopXXXX" (where XXXX is the Store number, which you can google).
that's a bummer. I've never gone into gamestop and had a bad experience. the worst thing that ever happens is I have to awkwardly so no to every promotion/question they throw at me.

I didn't use to care about saying no but now that I know their jobs rely on shit like that it makes me feel kind of bad honestly....
haha, that's fucking hilarious
ALSO, "GamestopXXXX" is frequently the password to unlock the interactives from "Demo mode" into full-functioning mode. Have fun downloading gay porn on your local store's PS4.

Are you talking shit about FPS games?
my brother used to work at gamestop(the same one with all the cuntheads). They never scheduled him any hours for no reason. Like literally, he got 5 hours every week. He worked harder than any of the other employees and wasn't a dick. They didn't even tell him that he was fired, they just stopped emailing him the schedule. Turns out, the manager was just lazy and he didn't like that he had an employee less lazy than he was.

>tfw you can't buy your shit at Gamestop anymore because the cashier is confidential and flirty by default
I'm too beta for this...
This is super common. They work SM's like fucking salary slaves (I once worked 76 hours one week in summer) and give the stores less-than-bare-minimum payroll. I could barely afford to give the employees I LIKED 5 hours, much less those I hated.
I'm glad the gamestop I sometimes go to isn't like this. I've never seen a girl working there. It's all chubby guys.
You do know that the cashier chicks purposely do that to get Betas like you to come back to the store right???

Yes, because apparently, if you're not as big of a loser as them who wastes their brain-space memorizing stupid shit like "drop rates" in RPG games, you're an edgy "too-cool-for-school" kid who only plays iphone games and, for some reason, "fps's", as if that's not a "real" gaming genre.

Ironic when those dipshits probably never even played games like Witchaven, Powerslave, Strife, or Terminator: Future Shock, heh, what a bunch of edgy too-cool-for-school kids, amirite?
This shit has the opposite effect on me.

100% true. I had 3 female employees, 2 were pretty hot. When they needed numbers, they wore a shirt with tons of cleavage.

This is know as "wearing your reserve shirt". Made me feel a little dirty, but my store DID get pretty good numbers.

/v/ cant be THIS stupid

Every time I go into Gamestop, that's how my interactions go. I have been confused for a father buying shit for his kid before. I've had the clerks studder because I don't give a fuck about their shitty sales pitches. I've had them back out of vidya conversation because I treat them like normal people but don't cater to the hype train coversations they normally get into.

The clerks are more socially awkward than some of the horror stories I read here. Then again...I see some fucking terrifying people doing shit every time I'm in there.

The credit card "Rollout Meeting" was the last week before I quit. The APR is fucking insane and it's supported not by a bank, but some fishy marketing firm.

As if I needed to say this, DO NOT get one. If one too many people default on their payments, I see the whole damn system collapsing.

not to scare you but most credit cards average between 17.99 and 25.99%.

So yea, its on the high end but typical for gouging out users. Unless of course, you pay it off every month then they get nothing...What is a 2 dollar interest plan though? Something they add per month regardless of purchases?

I was sick as fuck when brawl released, I still went though. We got there at 11:30 and they still had some tournament going on with everyone that got there early watching, my friends and I just walked to the front of the line and were the first to grab the game and leave. There was an asian guy in line behind us doing naruto moves and asking people what their final smash would be.

Abandon all hope man, I've heard horror stories about it.
Pretend you're a casual shit. Tell them your favourite game is The Last of Us and that you're going home to play Destiny with the "dudes" when you're done.

Well it's better than forcing your product onto the customer.
Most salesmen don't invite you over to their house to play games over the weekend, you know.
Seasonal isn't too bad. Milk the discount like crazy and be ready to be let go on January 15th. Or earlier if the DM is a cock.
actually it will hurt his numbers, pre-orders are put into the system based on the clerk that rings you up, even if you go to another store and cancel it from your account, it still is marked as a loss on that guy's totals.

this is also why they dont like it if you call up and ask for a pre-order to be moved to another store, they have to cancel it and re-pre-order at the new one.
>tfw I waited inline at a gamestop midnight release by myself once....on my birthday
So besides some employee losing a little bit of money is there anything JewStop can do if I preorder some games to get a better bargain and then cancel the preorder sometime later? Are there consequences for repeat offenders?

you fucking retard, its a general retail position. You don't get tips for ringing up games and being a stockboy.
Was that one story about how a guy would deposit his paycheck into gamestop under reserves, then unreserves it to withdraw true?
plural noun: tips

give someone information in a discreet or confidential way.
"they were arrested after police were tipped off by local residents"
synonyms: warn, alert, apprise, give notice, inform, notify, tell, let someone know, make someone aware, give a warning to, give fair warning to, forewarn, put someone on notice/guard, remind; More

Seems you're the retard here, anon.
Yes, most likely. Either way posting it himself probably got him found out, as within a day of that thread some reddit fag had posted it on the front page, then cracked and probably all the gay ming journalism sites posted an article about it.

No matter how you slice it though, that was not economical. All banks have free checking accounts for the most part, and ATMs. Shit was funny but retarded.

I haven't been in one of these stores in years, but holy shit how could you be this bad at such a non demanding job.
Employee loses no money. But each Cancek counts as a -1 to their preorder count which is like 75% of what you are ranked on. There is nothing negative that will ever happen to YOU -- just know that if you cancel preorders on a guy you actually like, you're making his numbers go down which means the DM is more likely to want them fired.
Gamestop is now below McD's in terms of required skill, yet you'd be surprised at how many manage to fuck it up.
Gamestop's policy is to NEVER do midnight launches for Nintendo products because (and I'm almost literally quoting here), "the target demographic would be in bed by then".

Just know that no Nintendo game EVER will get a midnight launch. Period. That's not a store-per-store basis, that's company-wide.

There's been multiple times where I've been at media resale shops and the employees lie about the dumbest stuff. I can't tell if it's autism or they think they're clever?

I really don't get it. I once had a guy tell me an album wasn't released on Record Store Day, even though it was. Told him that's not right I'd been following it's pre-release yada yada. long story short the dude just lied irrationally because they didn't have it in stock yet.

I'm too nice /v/, I don't know how to say no.
Which means if a store DOES do a midnight launch for a Nintendo game, the employees are doing it on their own and receive no corporate support or additional payroll to handle the traffic.

I did this all the time as an SM for games I wanted myself (so I could buy them at midnight) but don't expect that to be the rule -- it's the exception.
