Sep 9th 2011 4:02PM Actually, there is no written policy or guideline that says not to tell people they have a game already reserved. There might be some pockets where this is considered accepted practice due to lower management but, as a former employee, I can state that it does not exist. Gamestop gets a lot of crap for some of their actions...some justified, others not. Hating Gamestop has become such a hobby for the internet that any reason to do so is welcomed with arms wide open like a lost brother. What's worse though is that the actions of a corporate office are held against the local employees. Cut them some slack, maybe even ask THEM how they felt about the Deus Ex thing because I know the people that I know that still work there didn't like the idea at all. On the subject of false demand to create preorders, I know the game companies watch the preorders closely to determine how many to send to Gamestop, Best Buy, Target, Blockbuster etc since they all take preorders now. If little hole in the wall Gamestop in the middle of nowhere takes 2 reserves on Madden 12 for ps2, why would they waste allocation to send them 30 copies when it appears there's little interest in the title? It just happened with Dead Island, I went it to grab that and all of my local Gamestop's were out, as was Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and Toys R Us. Did it make me want to grab my torch and pitchfork? Nope, just waited an extra couple of days and went back and grabbed it. All I ask is that next time you're ready to take down "the man" to take a breath, and think about the people your anger gets focused on when you're in the store and how much power they actually have over the situation.
Jul 11th 2011 11:37AM Here's a question I haven't seen asked, what do YOU guys think will happen with Magni? There are hints that possibly a powerful shaman *cough*Thrall*cough* could help him, but up to this point, we haven't heard anything.

Nov 10th 2008 11:50PM Think the main reason people avoid Wal-Mart is because most of the time you can't find the people there to actually buy the product or if you do find somebody they don't work in that department and know nothing about what you're looking for.
