Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    there used to be a shopping center with a gamestop across from a funcoland
    then the funcoland got bought by eb games

    then eb games got bought by gamesotp

    now there are two gamestops across from one another

    My local mall used to have a GameStop on the upper floor and and an EBGames directly beneath it on the lower floor. Now we have GameStops on both floors, one above the other. Except the lower one's sign says "EBX."

    Of course, if you want to talk about this kind of weirdness at malls more generally, another mall in my town has a Macy's at both ends. Four anchor stores, and two of them are Macy's.

    Sounds like my former local mall.

    Except down the street from that mall, less than a half mile, was a strip mall with another Gamestop.
    We have three Gamestops, all within two square miles of each other - and all built as Gamestops. They were not other stores that were bought out.


    It is simply beyond my ability to comprehend.

    Same at our mall, except instead of the EBGames directly beneath it, it's directly across the lane from the store directly beneath it. And a convenient escalator going from in front of one to in front of the other.

    Can't recall seeing any "EBX" on it, though.

    I hope Slash records a video of him bringing in the preorder receipt and getting the game.

    he's just a forumer on here

    it was a running joke in GnT for a long time that anytime DNF came up he'd post a new picture of his preorder receipt

    I think he's made a few games on XBLIG

    One of my earliest memories was walking through an Incredible Universe store with my dad when I was nine. Anyone remember those?

    It was the first time I was ever in a big, loud store so it made an impression. I remember being blown away watching Mechwarrior 2 playing on a big screen TV. They went out of business really quick, the one I went to turned into a Target which is still there.

    Those games are awesome.

    He also has a website with several lists of what games are considered "must buys" for various systems and people link to it whenever someone says, "I just bought X system, what games should I get for it?"

    He also passed the bar exam and is a lawyer. Like for real. And he's a pretty swell dude.

    It was also pointed out that in between the time he preordered and redeemed his copy of DNF he cofounded a game studio and came out with not one but two commercially successful titles

    which is somewhat of an irony overload imo

    That is outstanding.
