I heard the dumb comment from a Sears employee yesterday.
Jersery City, NJ 2pm
There was a white 40s year old guy trying to buy a Blu-ray player and an Indian (maybe Pakistanian?) employee at a register next to me. They were comparing a blu-ray player on the Sears website and the one at the store.

Employee: "It's the same thing, but the website is .05 cent cheaper".
White guy: "Are they the same model?"
Employee: "Yes, this one is model number xxxxxxxxxx."
White guy: "What, wait, can you write the model number so that I can compare it with the one back there."
Employee: "It's model number xxxxxxxxx, just remember the number."
White guy: "My memory isn't that good." He looked embarrassed.
Me to the employee: "You're an asshole" "This customer asked you to write the model number and you said "just remember it"?"
Me to the white guy: "This guy is an asshole, you should complain".
Employee to me: "Don't use that kind of language."
Me: "Then do your job, you lazy ass."
Employee print a little piece of paper and wrote the number down.
White guy to me: "Thanks"

By the way, this is what was left.
PS3 Wet $9.99 2 left
PS3 Wolfenstein $9.99 1 left
PS3 Forelore $14.99 1 left


I'm still not sure what race has to do with any of this.

(By the way: it's Pakistani, not "Pakistanian".)

And I also picked up Red Dead Redemption that Sears had already put on the shelf for the PS3!

The Sears that I was in this afternoon already had Alan Wake out on the shelf. I passed on it, though, because it was only the regular edition, and I have the collector's edition pre-ordered with a coupon. I can wait a few more days. But, if anyone's in a real hurry for it, it might be worth checking Sears (YMMV, of course).

Also, if you get a chance to try it this weekend, please let us know whether there's anything to Cheapy's comment that he's heard that the PS3 version is "significantly inferior". Obviously you can't try it against the 360 version or anything like that, but let us know if anything stands out in the way of performance problems, glitches, crashes, etc. I've got the PS3 version pre-ordered, but after Cheapy's comment I've been debating whether to switch it.

Read again . . . "Cheapy's comment that he's heard that . . . "

Anyway, regardless, hoping that we get some reports from people who manage to get it early, while it's still possible to change/cancel the pre-order if necessary.

So far I do not see any major issues. The faces look a little lifeless and eyes a bit creepy. There are some artifacts here and there. Load times to get going seemed long but while playing the game seemed to flow smooth. Definitely setup like a GTA game. Has some basic cover type shooting. I did get into a duel. So far rode a horse and a horse and wagon. (No cars I saw in the first two towns yet.)

I am not a reviewer but I have played quite a few games. It is fun, but something feels just a bit off about the game. I plan to play a few more hours tonight and get further into the game.

Never had much luck at the Woodfield Mall (Chicago area) Sears before, but I saw a couple of PS3 titles today that aren't in the OP:

$14.97 :ps3: Lego Rock Band
$14.97 :ps3: Far Cry 2

The latter of which I picked up, and rang up for $9.97! Lego Rock Band may be the same but I didn't check.

Race didn't have anything to do with it. I wroting more details than needed, I guess. I even put the location and time, what the customer was buying in my post.
I'll try to leave out unnecessary info in my future posts.

BTW I'm Asian. And I had no idea how to write "Pakistani", thanks for the info.

PS why is everyone reading so much into race? I really didn't mean anything by it.

Because you felt the need to add "pakistani[an]" to your descriptor. If race didn't matter (to you) why mention it? The point of the anecdote is that he's a bad clerk right? So why mention his race. He's just a clerk, same as any other clerk. ahole or not.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

As I admitted before, I wrote more than needed. My mistake.

*This is a joke*
We can read more into the fact that a white guy and an asian guy is shopping (not working) while a Indian/Pakistani is working on a weekday at 2:00pm.
*Again this was a joke...maybe funny to some and not to others*

Hm . . . well, if you manage to figure out what that is, do let us know. I'm curious, to say the least, whether the "a bit off" is version specific, or the game in general. I've read an article or two from people who got to play an advance preview at Rockstar's studios who seemed to think it was awesome, but they didn't specify which version they played.

Thanks for the info!

you know i don't take anything you say seriously. Not as in non-joking. As in I just dismiss it.


I was just answering his question as to why everyone went nuts.

I forgot to mention my pickups from yesterday:

Marvel Ultimate Alilance 2:ps3:-$9.97
Singstar Vol. 2:ps3:-$4.97

One left on MUA2 for PS3.

I also saw a copy of WET for PS3 while there and some of the other clearance titles. They had them all(except Singstar Vol. 2) out in one of the big metal bins they use for clearance.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

And I sorta quasi-answered it as well. I get a kick out of people having a stroke over someone saying anything that denotes race as being a negative comment rather than someone being overly descriptive.

I do want to follow Mike_Toole's idea and build a fort. I wish I hadn't slept in on the sunday the Nerf game was free because I could easily build a fort with 30 of those big boxes. :-P

The 3 copies I picked up ended up being my gas money for that week.

Needless to say it wouldn't take too many of those to build a fort. :lol:

A couple of notable mentions @ my Sears last night was Spyborgs for $2.95, Lego Rockband (PS3) for $9.97, & an 80 gig PS3 :hot:...they must have dug that one out of the back corner of the warehouse. It was still $299.99 however.
