I miss the old days when guides and magazines were put on those spinners at Gamestop.

they got rid of those spinners cause i remember there was this glitter joke in CAG forums many years back. something about pushing them on the floor and throw glitter and run out.

Not sure how long ago it dropped but I found a Metroid Samus Returns guide on the shelf yesterday. The associate seemed a bit clueless as he happily sold it to me for a penny.    Stores in my area still have guides out so if you know what dropped off the site, give the racks a quick scan and you may get lucky.

Is it that hard to take it home so you don't have to obnoxiously whisper yell?

What state and district is that video recording in? Does anyone know the specific store or stores he is getting the guides out of the garbage at? I specifically told the publishers this is why the stores absolutely should SEND the guides back to the book publishers because the stores don't destroy them like they're supposed to. I will be using this guy's videos as evidence when I send more proof that people are still getting these guides somehow. At least the penny guides themselves have dried up, but if there are other means of people getting these guides then that's a problem since they're not meant to be sold or given away. I would love to get that douchebag manager fired at that location for not destroying the guides and merchandise before they are thrown away for gross negligence.

Wasn't even trying to hide who he was this time. Just freakin' blatant about it.

What is his mental illness? There is no reason to obsess over this for as long as he has.  He needs help.

I tried to buy a couple guides in store for that 50% off sale. The guy said they didn't even have guides anymore (think he was new; hadn't seen him before). Oddly enough, the website showed them as available for pickup at that same location. I guess they're hiding them so well, even the new employees can't find them.
