Game Whores

...for the late post.

Today's strip is a summation of my annoyances with GameStop (EB Games, Software Etc, Babbage's) and their shady bullying retail tactics. I just realized that I forgot the following as well:

PONFARR - Would you like to trade in any games or consoles for store credit?

MAX - Why yes! I'll trade myself in, at a rate of six cents on the dollar!

The place is a glorified pawn shop. The only reason I ever step foot inside GameStop is to find good used games on the cheap. It's absolute bullshit that they won't sell you games at launch (unless you preordered), when you can simply step foot inside any Circuit City or Best Buy and grab a copy from one of their mountainous piles. Not to mention, occasionally at a sale discount, which GameStop never does.

Next time one of those register monkeys gives you any shit, just ask them to shovel it elsewhere. They know how ridiculous the things they're saying are, but are mandated by management to be pricks. Now if it's clear that they enjoy being management-mandated pricks, feel free to fuck with them like Max did in today's strip.

Now Playing - Call of Duty 4, Rock Band (360)

Xbox Live/PSN Gamertag - Vawce
