Yeah, Fuck all those people that worked on this game. Don't let your hate boner for Randy Pitchford get in the way of all the innocent employees.

Well, it's not like the employees will get any financial benefit from your purchase. They already announced they will not be giving the employees their promised bonuses from the game.

"It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don't see another dime. So where's the motivation? And here's another thing, I have eight different bosses right now."

The point isn't to buy it so they get bonuses, it's to ensure they have a job to work on other games. A game that doesn't sell new copies eventually fires employees or whole studios. 

 

Not that you shouldn't buy used but sometimes it's worth it to buy brand new if you want to support a studio and future works.

No one thinks this. The act of protesting the game by not buying it is itself an act of caring for the developers. It isn't necessarily a hate boner for Randy, whether he ends up being a pedo like some reports indicated (maybe he isn't, idk) but the company Gearbox lied about Aliens, lied to their employees about payouts, and pays below market wages.

 

The employees will never get treated better by Gearbox, and we will never see progress in working conditions if you don't actually stand up for developers with your wallet. Gearbox is paying them as little as they possibly can while keeping them from quitting, so your purchase in no way benefits the devs really. They're getting their mediocre industry salary while Randy/other execs get millions in bonuses. 

The point isn't to buy it so they get bonuses, it's to ensure they have a job to work on other games. A game that doesn't sell new copies eventually fires employees or whole studios. 

 

Not that you shouldn't buy used but sometimes it's worth it to buy brand new if you want to support a studio and future works.

The company would have more money to pay devs if they didn't get Pitchford and exes $10+ million in bonuses. You're supporting Gearbox's shitty practices. You're supporting the continuation of the devs getting paid below market wages in bad conditions. You are supporting an abusive relationship between execs and devs, and the only solution is for those devs to leave and get jobs at studios that offer better pay and conditions, which actually exist. Unless Gearbox has a change of heart. They're going to lay off staff even while giving $10 million bonuses to execs anyway. 

 

Supporting Gearbox isn't helping the devs, its supporting a cycle of abuse that will continue until the brass up top gets the message. Buy the game used people. Its cheaper, you're supporting your local economy (if its at a retailer) and most of all, you aren't enabling a shitty workplace

Decided too late that I wanted the FF7 steelbook, so I'd been watching the site for the last few weeks hoping the ability to pre-order would pop up, but I never saw it. Checked Fri around 7 am, lo and behold they saved some stock for non-pre-order purchases.

 

I just got the email that my order has shipped!

Just got notified that my pre-order of Doom shipped. Supposed to be here on Wed. No word on the pre-order bonuses yet though.

PSA: AMC theaters is planning on filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, I only mention this because some of us bought AMC gift cards with our Gamestop credit/gcs. I used my AMC gift card to rent movies on their website to finish off my gift card.

Wasn't Walking Dead one of the biggest shows on TV that wasn't Game of Thrones? It's surprising that they couldn't last as long as GS.

They are 2 separate companies (AMC Theaters and the AMC tv channel)

 

If AMC goes under, I'd be really sad. My favorite movie chain... not to mention I have $80 worth of unused movie rewards.

is GameStop's site down for anyone else or just me? I just see "Oops...Something went wrong" and a refresh button.

 

edit: Now they're back up. 10 minute maintenance I guess.

Do you know how many people you just sent to their death right now lol?

 

jk. I know Nintendo is catching up on manufacturing, hopefully they have it sorted soon. They stopped shipping in japan intentionally to help reduce how many people were going out in public, which is crazy.

And right before that it was 2.80. A lot depends on how the government handles this bailout. People are rolling the dice basically.

I've been on hold with gamestop for about 3 and a half hours.  Are they closed for the day?  I don't see their hours listed anywhere

 

I'm calling to update my address for a pre order I put in last year for cyberpunk special edition.  I moved to a new address last week, I tried updating my address online but it doesn't change.
