  • Back when i was working at comet a women holding a Ethernet cable asked
    "Is this the internet."
  • A recent discussion with a friend of mine, had to post it. He just recently bought Gears 2.
    ---
    [spoiler:7a078dc02e]
    Me: So, how you liking Gears?
    Friend: Not bad, not bad. I didn't know the guy who voiced Master Chief voiced Marcus.
    Me: Uh, that's because he didn't.
    Friend: No, it's true. You can totally tell they're the same person. I would now I've played each game like sixty times.
    Me: No, Steve Downes only voiced Master Chief. John Di Maggio voiced Marcus Fenix.
    Friend: You're wrong. Steve Downes voiced both of them. You can't call yourself a gamer if you don't know that.
    Me: Alright
    [/spoiler:7a078dc02e]

    Totally had to post it, you had no idea.
  • Quick Story:

    I was at EB games in the mall near me. I was going to buy Left For Dead and since it was rated M and I'm 15, my aunt came to buy it. As we were going to pay for it the cashier, who was kinda fruity lookin, said " This game is rated M. There's a lot of gore. Theres also a lot of nudity."
    My aunt said " The more nudity this kid sees the better. It's good for him"
    Cashier: " Im just kidding there isn't any nudity, can i tell you a secret though?"
    the cashier made my aunt not listen in and he whispered...

    "Between you and boobs are heaven"

    He tried to make me promise that id not tell my aunt, but once we were in the parking lot i told her and she cracked up

    It s kind of a " You had to be there" moment but its still pretty funny

    Bwa.
    Bwa-ha.
    BWAAAA-HAAAA-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-Haaa ooooooh
    BWWAAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

    Oh look what you've made me do! I'm standing in puddle now.

    The 'Bwa' related posts above are a true translation of my reaction.
    The puddle thing is a slight exaggeration.

    Noobie for you!

    CRC

    P.S.

    Woman in EB games: you do know that if you trade in your old games, we can give you the best value (lie 1) and that you should do it as soon as possible as they will only decrease in price (lie 2)?

    CRC: Erm, thanks, but I'll shop somewhere else.
  • I also experience that one the other day. I order fora coke she gave me hot choco.

    I was at Wal-Mart, and someone who had a Wii wanted to buy some GameCube games (e.g. smash bros. Melee, etc.) since there's backward compatibility.

    Customer: If I buy a GameCube game, can I play it on my Wii?
    Employee: Yes, as long as you have a memory card and a GameCube Controller.
    Customer: I don't. Do you have those in stock?
    Employee: No, we don't sell them anymore. We just have the GameCube games.
    Customer: Then, what's the point?


    lol. thats kinda stupid but i can see were hes coming from
  • I was in gamestop today... These 4 guys (read 14 year olds) walk in. This one guy is wearing a vibrant bean hat with dreadlocks halfway down his back... He is just walking around like he is high and says "eff". Literally "eff"! Just out of nowhere! This kid was mental! It was more of seeing him that was funny. He thought, he was a hippie or something. And I hate people that walk into the store and talk really load... like these kids did... :roll:
  • "If you want an awesome single player experience check out Warhawk."
  • "Does this run on a mac?" *points to a 360 game*
  • My recent conversation with the manager of the GameStop I frequent...

    Him: "Hey, how free are you around Christmas?"
    Me: "I've got a few weeks off."
    Him: "Would you be interested in making some extra cash over the holidays? You know...work a few hours..."
    Me, just happy this wasn't going into date territory: "Are you offering me a job?"
    Him, getting uncomfy: "Well I know you know a lot about games, and it'd be nice to have...you know...someone here with..."
    Me, laughing: "Boobs?"
    Him, now REALLY uncomfy: "No! I mean someone who knows about games. Though it'd be nice to break up the sausage fest."

    ...yes, it'd be nice if the people who worked at the gamestore knew something about games. :roll:

    In all fairness every game store in the world has to have at least one pair of boobs. It's one of the unspoken rules of discrimination. Like every warehouse, call center, and 7-11 needs at least one employee with non white skin. Every Walmart need an old man at the front of the store. and Best Buy, Target, and Fred Meyers/Krogers need to have the majority of their employees be under drinking age. Don't believe me... go to one of these stores and see for yourself.
  • Trying to get into a club when I was 18.

    Bouncer: You got ID?.
    Me:I have a beard, I dont think Im 12 mate.
    Bouncer shows no emotion and I show him the ID.

    Bouncer doesnt ask for ID from my mates since he probably didnt want more lip from me...Funny thing was I was the only one of legal age the others where underage.
  • I was in Computer Exchange last weekend and I heard some guy asking the staff if the Wii Fit board was compatible with all platforms... If the guy didn't have such a straight face, and such a serious tone I would've thought he was joking.
  • When I saw this I just had to post it.

    :roll:
  • that took me two looks to get it, but wow
  • Thank you for your inconvenience? Well, they're not welcome.
  • When i bought ME 1&2 they asked if they could put the games in one case.

    UMMMMMMMMMMMMM NO.
  • Gamestop "Dude": Hello How may I help you
    Me: I'm looking to pick up my game that I brang in here for you to clean... Street Fighter 4
    G"D": I don't think we have a copy of that, sorry.
    Me: No, I brang it in here yesterday so you could clean it.
    G"D": It might of got shipped to EB Games, have a nice day.
    ... I saw it in the back so I pointed it out, but I feel like the dumbass was trying to steal from me, so now it's all Amazon'

    I don't know how dumb this is, but more careless.

  • Not so much heard as much as happened not too long ago.

    Walmart

    Me : Hey I found this game without a security sensor or anything.

    Cashier : Want me to ring it in?

    Me : Well you don't have to

    Cashier : Ok *puts it in the bag*

    Me : Err...

    Cashier : Okie dokey have a nice day!

    Me : O_o

  • Recent conversation I had when I went to pick up Final Fantasy 13.

    GS employee: OK, for what console.
    Me: 360
    GS employee: Oh come on, really? You know it's ten times better on the PS3!
    Me: You give me a PS3 I'll play it on PS3, right now I only own a 360.
    GS employee: (now really scoffing at me) Well fine then, but when your box red rings you won't be able to play it at all.
    Me: And when your PS3 can't tell if it's a leap year or not and stops working you'll have to play on the 360.
    GS employee: Well I still think it's a waste on the 360, the PS3 has better graphics
    Me: (trying to be reasonable) And the 360 has better online play. They're both good consoles, but right now I only own a 360.
    GS employee: Online on the PS3 is awesome!
    Me: Really? I'm sure you talk to a lot of PS3 people online, as I'm sure they ALL have mics.
    GS employee: ....uh...I don't have a microphone.
    Me: Give me my damn game.

    I tried to end the conversation saying the NT creed: buy all the consoles, play ALL the games. I actually really WANT a PS3 because God of War 3 is out and looks awesome. But I was so surprised by the obvious PS3 fanboy behind the counter that I just had to respond.
  • Lol, I suppose ignorance is truly bliss for the clueless.
  • well, off hand i cant think of any times that particularly stand out, but in response to "Locke"'s question about if you've helped ppl, the answer is yes, many times.

    I used to work for best buy, and La source (what used to be Canadian radioshack). While there i would do my best to help ppl make informed choices, based on what they're looking for, and what i know and have heard about different titles.

    But as even just a passer by, its happened on numerous occasions where either ill step in and prevent someone from making a horrible choice for what they said they wanted (i believe in true customer service, not ripping ppl off)

    I believe that people should get what they want, and the experience they want. Especially with today's prices. When your gonna spend 60 - 70$ on something its a good idea to like it. :)

    As for my funny moments, the only general one i can think of, that always makes me laugh a little inside, is when your in line and a parent or anyone for that matter goes up to the counter and asks "Whats an Xbox?" same applies to any other consoles. lol.
