Fails of War

25 September 2011 - 10:58 PM

So...I was playing a little Horde tonight, and when we got to the level 10 boss fight, it was a Lambent Berserker. Very annoying to fight. Well, seeing as how I was teamed up with a bunch of randoms, there wasn't much teamwork going on and it kicked our ass pretty bad. A few minutes into the round, and I'm the last guy left, dancing around with this big bitch. Usually people start leaving if they have to go longer than a few seconds without playing, so I was surprised to see that nobody was quitting as I duked it out with Big Bertha. A few minutes of dodging and spraying go by, and this fucker FINALLY goes down. I'm so happy, so proud of myself for doing what nobody else could, that I decide to go and try and teabag this bastard as it's rolling around on the ground with light coming out of its chest.

Now.

I haven't played a ton of Gears 3, so it still hasn't quite sunk into my thick skull that LAMBENT THINGS EXPLODE. While I'm doin' my little dance on the dying boss, my teammates surely screaming "RUN AWAY" at their televisions, it decides to up and go nuclear.

Level failed.

...I heard the rustling and popping of several people plugging in their mics and strapping them on, and I quickly left the lobby. :blush:

Battlefield 3 beta

Early access on the 27th if you pre-order through Origin or pre-ordered Medal of Honor.

Also, system requirements.

What the fuck, GameStop!?

Story.

So, the deal is this: GameStop decided to start cracking open sealed copies of the game Deus Ex: Human Revolution because inside, there was a coupon for a free copy of the game through a service called OnLive. If you've never heard of it, OnLive enables you to play a game on basically any device with a broadband Internet connection and the ability to display streaming video. You push the buttons on your computer, but the commands are sent across the 'net to OnLive's machines which are actually running the game, which then send the video results back to your screen. The end-result is that you could play a game like Crysis 2 on an iPad or piece of shit netbook.

Why would GameStop do this? Because they plan to offer a similar service, and don't want to help a competitor. GameStop claims they had the right to open the sealed games because Square-Enix (the publisher of Deus Ex) declined to inform them that they were including these coupons. I, however, refuse to accept this bullshit excuse. When GameStop found out about this coupon, they could have stopped selling the game immediately, but instead they decided to just start tearing open boxes and selling the copies as brand new. We're not talking about just one kooky manager with a bug up his ass, either; this was a memo sent down from corporate headquarters to all stores. What's worse is that they didn't even tell customers what they'd done. I find this to be not only unscrupulous but blatantly illegal behavior, and intend to make my voice heard with my wallet. I will be visiting my local GameStop tomorrow after work and cancelling my pre-orders for Battlefield 3 on both PC and 360, and will inform the manager personally my reasons for doing so. I'll pre-order from Origin directly for PC and get my 360 copy from Best Buy or something.

Fucking GameStop, man.

Ba-nanners.
