    I got the Star Citizen hoodie way back when and it's a very good buy, the thing is incredibly comfortable. Also got a cheap-ass ship, I guess.

    How many stores even are there, I guess it does seem like they’re everywhere, maybe it’s not a huge percentage as I think it is

    When I was growing up our local mall had both a Gamestop and a EB Games

    After they bought out EB Games, our mall had two Gamestops up until, and most likely beyond when, I stopped going to that mall

    I had some time to kill waiting for my wife and went into a GameStop recently. It was...grim.

    another $20 gets you access to the single-player campaign, Squadron 42, in... 2020? 2021?

    Toys R Us was intentionally killed by venture capitalists. It only "failed" because they forced it to.

    Gamestop refused to sell me a copy of Doom 3 without pre-ordering some other game back in 2004 and as far as I'm concerned everything that's happened to them since then is retribution for that.

    Chris Roberts believed in the Star Citizen, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. So we beat on, starships against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

    I feel bad for the people losing their jobs, I hate to see that happen ever.

    But man, Gamestop the corporate entity has just never generated any goodwill. Shopping there should have felt good, but they always had some bullshit to try and get more money out of you. It should be sadder that a major games retailer is slowly dying but I just don't care at all.

    While Richard Garriot's kinda settled down from back when he was basically using games as a slush fund for rocket trips (rip tabula rasa), between him and Roberts you can maybe see why Origin got shitcanned.

    Wow, Blasphemous is

    Extremely Spanish

    This is definitely the product of people what grew up in an extremely Catholic nation that also has a cultural emphasis on death and mortification

    I don't know if ya'll ever got a chance to visit Spain during Easter, but




    yeah, they out there like this

    The last time I bought a Gamestop the clerk tried to upsell me a game guide and then did an audible *scoff* when I said no. Implying that I was of lesser intelligence to want to enjoy games on my own.

    Fuck Them.

    I worked at gamestop, it sucked

    at one point there were six different things I was expected to harass every single customer about after they bought something

    Like, I don't even know if I like Blasphemous as a game

    It's just... so much, from a thematic standpoint; I don't know what to make of it. And I suspect, as a non Christian who grew up and lives in a country where the dominant religion and culture are not Christian, I may be unable to build a cohesive critical opinion about the game because I lack the necessary cultural touchstones

  • Oh well I'm just a fuckin tourist, I grew up goin to church five days a week in a very indifferent Anglican atmosphere, I just have a fascination with the brand Catholicism that Blasphemous evokes
