This is a PSA of sorts. Some people already know the story, but what the fuck.

I went to Gamestop/EB Games today because BioShock doesn't come out for a while, and I don't really have any games to play. I was planning on picking up some older games and maybe even a Xbox 360 game.

I ended up buying XIII, Crimson Skies, and the original Splinter Cell all for a total of $10. They were obviously all used, but in very good condition. Then I happened to notice that SC: Double Agent was only $30 new. So of course, I bought that too.

Turns out I had accidentally picked up a used copy of Double Agent, because when I got home I noticed that the case wasn't sealed. No big deal, right? I mean I just saved a couple of bucks on a near-mint copy. Wrong. Instead of putting the correct game in the case, the fucking moronic Gamestop employee had put the original Xbox version of Double Agent in, not the 360 one.

What. The. Fuck.

By this point in time, my power levels were off the charts -- they must've been well over 9000. I mean, come on, how hard is it to differentiate between the two types of disks. One has a black top, the other has a white top. It's not fucking rocket science. The guy must've been too busy talking about preorders, because he asked me if I was going to preorder Halo 3 multiple times.

Anyways, I'm planning on heading back over to the store tomorrow. They better not give me any shit or I swear to God, I'll make a scene.

So next time you buy a used game, make sure to check the disk before you get home.
