"I missed out on a deal! That means an evil flipper STOLE it from me!"

Posted by Rozz, 16 October 2013 - * * * - - · 879 views

Can we stop the consistent whining about how “flippers” are stealing all of the deals? It seems like every day in certain threads when something sells out someone throws a hissy-fit over how some evil “flipper” bought the game and stole the deal from them. Hell, Madden 06 can sell out and some douchebag will cry and complain about how some “flipper” bough...

Stop Hating on Jeremy

Posted by Rozz, 08 September 2013 - * * * - - · 456 views

Jeremy is a highly-respectable gentleman and I am sick of him being slandered in this blog section by a certain poster. Even though he may sometimes gloat about his accomplishments, remember this: it’s not really “bragging” if you can back it up. In short, he is one of the best people you can ever meet and the only reason he’s receiving so much hate on he...

CAG Drama Over Spoiler Tags

Posted by Rozz, 04 March 2011 - - - - - - · 204 views

Damn, who would have thought that there would be so much conflict on this forum over spoiler tags? Gargus was told to keep spoilers on the first photo on his Gamestop Infestation thread (where the picture of roaches inside of a game case is) because a few people found issue with it, but he wasn't going to let that happen. He took off the spoilers four...

Ever Stop Playing a Game Halfway Through?

Posted by Rozz, 09 December 2010 - - - - - - · 132 views

I enjoyed the first Lost Planet on the Xbox 360 a few years back in the console's early lifespan so I recently purchased Lost Planet 2. Yeah, yeah, I know it got piss-poor reviews and such, but for $10 at GameFly it seemed like it'd be a fun game for the money.

For a few hours I enjoyed blasting away, despite the abysmal A.I. of your teammates (there we...

Sonic Adventure XBL Arcade Release Met With Poor Reviews

Sonic Adventure was originally...

I'll Never Want a Gamestop Display Copy Again...

Posted by Rozz, 06 September 2010 - - - - - - · 143 views

Love it or hate it, there always seems to be some sort of reason to step into Gamestop. This time I was looking to purchase a game with some of the credit I've amassed from trade-ins.

As I was waiting at the register (not to poke fun of anyone's weight or anything) this obese guy was holding a game in his hand. As he was holding it he had a Burger King b...

Gamestop - Where Do the Refurb Fees Go?

Posted by Rozz, 28 February 2010 - - - - - - · 114 views

I took a trip down to the mall today and while I was there I decided to stop off at Gamestop. I found a decent looking game for the PS2 and bought it. While I was at the counter I asked if it was in good condition, and the employee working there assured me that it was (they checked it) and I purchased it.

Afterwards I went outside of the store to check...

Troubling Times Are Ahead for the Xbox 360 Core Gamer

Posted by Rozz, 13 September 2008 - - - - - - · 56 views

http://1.bp.blogspot...320/avatars.jpg It’s no secret that – despite the overall low quality of many of the shovelware “casual” releases clogging up the Wii’s current library – these games sell well regardless. When half-hearted affairs like Carnival Games and Deca Sports outsell original, critically ac...

Neo Contra and the Empty Game Case Blues

Posted by Rozz, 07 September 2008 - - - - - - · 64 views

http://1.bp.blogspot...0/neocontra.jpg Back in 2002 I rented Contra: Shattered Soldier for the PS2. Besides the swanky new visuals, the game play was a pure blast from the past: an excruciatingly hard difficultly level and nothing but pure action. I never made it through the entire game (I’m not o...

When Game Covers Rip Each Other Off

Posted by Rozz, 13 August 2008 - - - - - - · 58 views

Saints Row 2 and Mercenaries 2 are both slated for release this year, and although they're by two entirely different publishers, the covers do share a rather striking resemblance to each other:
