Every time my husband pre-orders a game at Game Stop, he swears he'll never do it again. He always ends up having to fight them to get his codes or posters or whatever he was promised. This week, however, he not only had to fight to get the 3DS protective case that was supposed to come with his Castlevania game, he had to explain to the kid behind the counter what a 3DS is. The kid who works at Game Stop.

Yikes. I am going there this week to purchase a 3DS. I'm slowly catching up with the times.

Yay, Countdown!

But oy. Having to fight for promised extras sucks. If it were me, I'd write to corporate.

I have no clue what a 3DS is, but I'm not exactly known for living on the leading edge of popular culture or tech.

I tried to focus on the comic, but I was distracted by Peachy Pie being a idoit.

That's weird. Mostly I've heard of GameStop giving out swag after no one came in to buy the games. I ended up getting 4 or 5 different styluses and 6 decks of PotC playing cards one time when I mentioned that I was buying the PotC game only for the playing cards. They didn't even want me to buy the PotC game.

I had to remind them to give me my World Of Warcraft (Cataclysm) poster... seems a bit strange they would forget, it was a midnight launch, that was the only reason the store was open.

Maybe before you work at game stop they should check that you have a basic knowledge about games.... and the devices you play them on

I can't for the life of me remember the name of the baby boy, but I know I have one.

Minty's scarf made me giggle. Wherever did you find a monkey-head print that tiny?

Clueless shop clerks can be frustrating. One of the last times I went to the craft store, I had to describe what plastic canvas was before the clerk could point me in the right direction.

I used to work at game stop. I can tell you it's because 1. The company doesn't send enough promos for all the preorders and 2. Game stop employees steal the promo stuff that does show up cause its cool.

Game stop sucks. Don't shop there.

I was furious the two games I pre-ordered, I was supposed to get special figurines for them. I came in the afternoon and they told they were all gone. It was a first come, first serve thing, which they didn't tell me when I pre-ordered, so I was SOL. I wouldn't have pre-ordered if I'd known that! I thought pre-orders were guaranteed the items!

Yeah, so, little wary of buying from them again.
