This ass is selling 40+ copies of Hyrule Historia LE

Wow, what a douche nozzle

I've got myself a copy of the Zelda series bible Hyrule Historia, and it's as amazing as everyone says. However, for highly appealing ancillary game merch such as art books, I like to splurge a little extra on fancy collector's editions just for the heck of it. I wanted to snag the Limited Edition of Hyrule Historia, which was restricted to a mere 4000 copies, but the damn thing sold out within minutes of appearing on various pre-order pages. Publisher Dark Horse screwed up the allotted shipments so badly that many orders were quietly canceled without any notice to the buyers. It seemed like the only guaranteed way to score an LE was to make the trek to the Nintendo World Store in New York City on the book's release date.

A few days ago, this magnificent bastard with the username Tommy98118 posts on Craigslist that he's in possession of the hotly sought-after tome and is willing to part with it for a hefty fee. But it's not just one book that's for sale, nor two, nor three, nor even ten. This asshole is sitting on over 40 copies -- literally 1% of the entire run of LEs -- and is scalping them like the little rat he is.

The reddit peanut gallery did not find this shady scheme amusing at all. I mean, when all these other honest consumers were getting dicked over by Dark Horse's ineptitude, how did this fucker make out like a bandit? Tommy must have caught wind of all the calls for his head, because he swiftly changed the header image of his listing to show only a single copy of the book. Thankfully, the sleuths on NeoGAF screen-capped his shame before he could sweep it under the rug.

I swear to Christ, some people are the worst.
