That Gamecrazy has been a diamond in the rough for me (I live pretty close to there). Usually when the Gamestops in the area are out of a game, I can almost always still find it at Gamecrazy. Of course, now that the secret is out...
If you ever see a blonde, 30-something white chick come in your store looking really out of place amongst the other patrons, it's likely me.
I hate the Gamestop in our area. Everytime I go in there, and try to make small talk with the employees about games and stuff while they are slow, they act like I have the plague. Then again, that's the norm for every GS I've ever been in. It's like their employees are too good to talk to the customers.
If you are ever in the West Flo. GC, I'll be the out of place employee(the only small white guy working there). We don't get many Cheap Ass Gamer's around here, just a lot of Cheap Ass Customers
The Fenton Gamestop still has 1 PS3 CE of SF IV if you're looking for one, it was a transfer from another store. I also saw a CE of Halo Wars at the West County Mall EB Games, but that was 2 weeks ago.
The Fenton Gamecrazy really pissed me off on Black Friday and I refuse to go there anymore. I filed a MO Attorney General complaint against them and was awarded a $20 GC. I then went there to redeem it for a PSN card (was waiting for them to get 1600 MS point cards back in stock but needed the PSN card more) and it took them 1 hour and 7 calls to GC Tech Support to sell me the card.
I was one of their best customers from 2006-mid 2007, even got a friend to buy a 360 there. Now all I've bought there since Sept. 08 was Tales of Vesperia LE, 2 sets of PS3 triggers for $5 each (the ones that slide onto the L2/R2 buttons,) Burnout Paradise 360 ($20 and Gamestop was sold out of new and used copies,) and that $20 PSN card I got essentially for free. Compare that to the hundreds I've spent at the Fenton Gamestop and it's a blow to them.
Even though the GC pre-order item was much cooler for RE 5 (sandglobe vs. animation cell) I still went to Gamestop because they treat customers much better there. It's not the manager or the asst. (red hair, glasses,) but it's this fat kid (third key I guess?) they hired from CC in 2007 that is the a-typical game store jackass. See my blog list for what happened on Black Friday.
That sucks that GC gave you bad help. I will admit, we have had a lot of trouble with those PSN cards. But it sucks because I kinda take pride in the fact that I feel like GC has always given me better service than GS(see above) and I strive to give that to my customers in my store.
BTW, if you really want one of those sandglobes, we have boxes at my store, and if you are ever going to be in North County, send me a PM and come by the store and you can have one.
