Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

Wait, Gamestop owns ThinkGeek? Does this mean I am not allowed to shop there, either? Crap.

"more convenient?" I wonder if even he actually believes that.

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

I always thought Think Geek was associated with Penny Arcade before Gamestop bought it. Based on that (mis)information, I've stayed away from TG for years.

What was wrong with PA, aside from being annoying and unfunny?

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

I'd been reading (and enjoying) that site for maybe a year when, all of a sudden, it seemed that links to PA merch on Think Geek started popping up everywhere. Then entire posts were dedicated to this shirt or that poster or whatever. All the marketing and selling that hadn't been there before just left a very bad taste.

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

I know it's cool to hate on Gamestop but if you're taking advantage of promos you can get some great deals. I just traded in Uncharted: Lost Legacy for $34 (more than I paid for it new), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $56 (more than I paid for it new), along with a handful of other games that were within $5-10 of what I paid for them making them cheap rentals.

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

Yeah, I'm not watching 15 minutes of that. Does he say anything other than it doesn't compare discount wise to the BB or Amazon programs?

The program is explained in the first 5 minutes or so?

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

Oh, if you're just talking about the new program, it was posted here earlier. I thought you posted the vid because this guy's analysis had something special.
