[GAMESTOP, I WORK THERE] v1 "First issue!?"

Hey guys, I work at Gamestop in Massachusetts and thought I'd start wring blogs with some info that could be helpful to the general gaming community. I'm really not a journalist so you can expect these to be short and sweet.

1. First on the agenda, is that it seems a lot of Guitar Hero III controllers are busted. Mostly the 360 ones. The whammy bar and the star power are usually the issues. Anyone else having this problem? Doing a defective return from where ever you bought it seems to work just fine.

2. I know Gamestop gets a lot of shit for giving lousy trade values but you can't deny that its a lot easier than selling through ebay. I can tell you now that Bioshock is only worth 18 so just keep it, but halo 3 is worth 35, and after a few promotions it can be up to 45 which isnt too shabby. Also, you can almost always get extra credit when you trade toward a reserve.

3. If you ever want some swag, ask the workers if they have leftover promos from games. Tell them you'll pre-order something if they give you a piece of swag. Gamestop loves pre-orders, and they'll probably be happy to get rid of the junk anyway. Right now, I'd ask for the Han-Solo PSP case, or the 8-bit figurine of Simon Belmont. Or just ask, who knows what they still have lying around.

Ok thats all for now. I'll try to keep you updated.

About Spykronone of us since 12:06 PM on 07.01.2007

I'm 25 and I like video games!!! I'm a cheap-ass about it so I rarely have the newest stuff.

I own NES, SNES, Dreamcast, GBA, GBA Micro, GBA SP, DS lite, PSP slim, PS2, and a 360 Elite.

Also a PC of course, and the best game ever is Starcraft.

I work at Gamestop in Westfield, MA. Most Gamestops arn't cool. Mine is alright.

Other than games, I like photography, graphic design and hiking/camping. My hobbies are expensive :-(

If you go to my website, I will make happy at you!
