#13997248 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by wargod on 19 May 2018 - 08:58 PM

A company that is Amazon’s punching bag is complaining about lost revenue due to GCU. Make better decisions as a company relative to your competition or become another Sears/Kmart. No one should feel sorry for Best Buy. They brought this on themselves just like TRU did.

Just now canceling GCU?

Tells us all we need to know about this company. Glad I didn’t renew mine when it expired. Amazing foresight on my part.

Posted by wargod on 24 November 2017 - 04:27 AM

After spending thanksgiving the way it’s meant to be spent with family all day, I stopped off at best buy at 10:30pm to see if I could snag some switch games for my nephew since he’s getting a switch for christmas.

I find a copy of Disegea 5 sitting on its side in a stack of other games resting on their side. No one bothered to check through the whole pile so I got the last copy. Picked up rayman and lego ningago for him also. A long ass check out line of 40+ people so the guy tells me to go to customer service since they can ring out just games there.

I was in and out in 5 minutes.

Another day of winning.

Just drove past best buy on our way to my wife’s parents house and there is a line of 20 neckbeards freezing out side. For the ones who don’t have any nearby family, they get a free pass. I can understand that.

The ones who are openly choosing to be there while the rest of their family is enjoying time with each other without them needs to seek professional help soon. Very selfish of them.

Microsoft store wins again. All these 3rd party retailers are a disgrace.

Do these retailers not know how to have good servers during BF? 

 

What a fail

40 min round trip to save $40?

 

Meh, I'll pass.  Time is too valuable.

#13567291 NES Classic @ GameStop (Dec. 15)

Posted by wargod on 16 December 2016 - 01:46 AM

When I got to my gamestop this morning, there was a line of 6 neckbeards standing outside bragging about how they were going to buy an NES Classic and sell it on ebay for profit.  I threw this at them and they scattered faster than the roaches in their basements after they turn on the light:

#13560845 Costco Xbox Elite Contoller

Posted by wargod on 10 December 2016 - 05:53 PM

You have the scan of the Costco receipt shown earlier in this thread.

You have the image of the display showing the instant manufacturers rebate.  

You have the policy showing that they have to match Costco prices regardless if it's a membership.

 

If your local best buy doesn't give you the controller for $99 and also a $30 gift card, then they are violating their own policy.  Once the price match occurs, they cannot void out the $30 gift card manually.  That is a no no at the corporate level.

 

Go in there my CAGs and take them by the balls.  You got this.

There was no "game stop".  You either had friends to trade borrow games with, or you were stuck with the games you had until you had enough to get a new one.  There was no "go play apps on your iphone kids until we get you a new game" like today.   Kids these days really don't know how well we paved the way for them.

2 games wouldn't be a big enough sample size to gauge the difference in almost anything. But I can say I have noticed an improvement over the control of my aim and movement.

Interesting.  Before you know it you'll be getting hate messages on live along the lines of "put down the elite controller and play me using the standard one"!  Or maybe that has already happened?

It's helps in games like CoD where using the rear paddles to jump or slide allow you to have better control since you don't need to move your thumb from the right stick to the buttons. It also comes with different lengths of thumbsticks which can help with fine tuning of aim.

So has it saved you in certain situations in actual game play or is it mostly hype?  I already receive messages from players in CoD threatening to take their game back to gamestop if I don't stop being a "try hard" against them.  As if that "threat" some how impacts me.   I can only imagine what would happen if I had this controller in my hands....

Yet red states take way more from government programs than they put in and are essentially subsidized by blue states. Weird.

Look at the types of government programs though: http://www.slate.com...your_taxes.html

I can see why people who camp out in front of stores for 9 days would be against Trump.  People without jobs that collect from the government even though they are perfectly capable of working don't like Trump because he's against making hard workers pay for lazy members of society.
