  1. He is one of my top's as well. Right now my favorite is Ted Dekker. Which I may have said already in this thread. But, now his daughter is writing as well. Her first book "The Choosing" is pretty good so far. I am about 25% done with it and am enjoying it. She writes a lot like her father, but with a nice flair of her own. I can see her joining my top favorite authors as her writing career progresses.

  2. I figured as much. Thanks for checking.
  3. Does anyone have a link to the website where this can be entered, or is it only available on the Xbox App now? I tried the original link and did some browsing on the site but did not find anything that was still working.

  5. Amen! I worked at a GameStop location for 3 years, and still have many good friends that work there. Maybe he is in a district with a cruddy district manager that only hires junk people, or maybe not. I know for one the location I worked at, and the 5 different locations that I still have good friends working at and managing would never treat one customer any better or any worse then another customer. No matter how much money a customer puts into their store. Its bad salesmanship to. We also never let people see merchandise before it was released. There are laws against selling product early, and we would not take the chance of theft or fines to show someone something early. Not to mention it is against GameStops policies to let someone in the back that is not an employee. And any unreleased product per policy is required to stay in the back. As far as the box goes, I fully understand not wanting the one with a hole in it. GameStop also has policies in place to make sure that if something like that were to happen, they can find you another copy of the product. Unfortunately you might have to wait a day or two to get it, but if they are doing their jobs they would find you one. As far as the freebees, most promo items that the store can give out are by policy required to be given to certain people in certain circumstances. For instance, if you preordered a lego game, you get a lego based freebee. If the game has been out a while and most people would not care or want that freebee, then I can see where they would give it out to anyone. But that's not something to complain about when you don't get something that was free and limited to begin with. And with the pennied out items, policy actually says that they are supposed to through those in the trash. So the fact that you were getting those at all, again was a freebee that is limited. So complaining about not getting them now is stupid. Not to mention that when I had to penny out items, it was few and far between. Maybe once or twice a year. All in all, I understand the box, but that is something they should and could have found a replacement for. Everything else is just unneeded bitterness and complaining. I am editing my post to include my responses to jackanape. If I was his manager, I would have done the same. Thats actually a very fair response to damaging store product. Writing a letter to the managers, (and I would add corporate) is also another great idea. Maybe if people would do more of that and less complaining on message boards more company's would remove junk employees and hire better ones. However, in agreeing with most of your opinions (and I want it known that I still respect them) I do disagree that treating some customers better is a good business move. People tend to see that, and when they do they have no reason to come back to that store. What if the soccer mom does not understand what she is buying and you focus on her more then your long time customer that day. Next time she has another person to buy for she will come back to you vs other stores. Because you took the time that a place like Walmart wont. You as a salesmen should try to focus your time equally on all customers. You never know, that person may become one of your long time customers. How do you think you got those long time customers anyway. They kept coming back for something after all.
  6. From gamestops website. Pre-owned Guarantee This pre-owned product has been carefully tested, and is guaranteed to work. If you are not completely satisfied, simply return the product within 7 days for your money back or identical exchange within 30 days of purchase. When I worked there how we explained it is that if you didn't like the game, or even beat the game and just wanted to exchange it for another you had 7 days to do so. If it didn't work, or had any issues at all we would exchange it, or simply return it up to 30 days after the purchase. Some games do get past Gamestops visual inspection when they are traded in, but they do honor it and make sure (within a reasonable amount of time) that you end up with a working game.
  7. Same here. Even if it is buggy, it was free.
  8. I wondered, but ignored. Didn't seem like it legitimately had anything to do with the thread so I moved on.
  9. Merry Christmas! :D

  10. What about having it focus on Edward and having the "old" characters in the background like the brotherhood cover? I don't think it would look bad having all of them equally focused on, but I leave that to the artist. I just think it would be cool to see all the main characters in one image. Even if it is to big to have as a sig.
  11. First off, this may be more work then anyone wants to undertake, but I think it would be cool to have a sig with each of the Assassins Creed main characters. I was thinking all 6, (Yes I know that three games all have the same main character) but just 4 would be cool too. I guess my idea is to have Altair on the left, and then go game character by game character to the right, ending in Edward Kenway. Something like this http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&docid=Y5-2tcakaE56wM&tbnid=W6D06xQBrAsWQM:&ved=0CAgQjRwwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fnightmaremode.net%2F2011%2F06%2Fassassins-creed-brotherhood-review-6405%2F&ei=sB9TUuWvLYbm9gSJtYCwDw&psig=AFQjCNGAqeHaD6S4t43-ZT5nlA9EHaFuTw&ust=1381265712835442 Or this http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&docid=6lkLTX2gz3FSxM&tbnid=LzTUGUurXmrv7M:&ved=0CAgQjRwwADgF&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wired.com%2Fgamelife%2F2010%2F05%2Fassassins-creed-brotherhood%2F&ei=tB9TUtOSHZK-9gT4-4DYCQ&psig=AFQjCNHWL2UGF5-vuDY0pajGQcmGVKMtUg&ust=1381265716544894 but with the main character from each game. If anyone wants to undertake that, awesome. If you wouldnt mind make one with "Makumazon" at the bottom/top somewhere to use as my sig. If not one wants to take it on, I understand.
  12. I started that over a year ago, and am still working on it.
  13. I am done with all the Sherlock Holmes books! Finished it on 09/20/13. Won the little competition me and my buddies had. Now waiting for my steak dinner on them. Haha. Now I am reading Sovereign (The Books of Mortals Book 3) by Ted Dekker, and Tosca Lee. I love Dekker stuff, and am finding myself really enjoying Tosca Lees writing in these books as well. I think I will check out some of her stand alone stuff soon. So far the book has really kept my attention. The series has been really good and I cannot wait to see how Lee and Dekker end it.
  14. I don't know what kind of Programming/Coding it would take, but is anyone here able to approve an official http://www.xbox360achievements.org/ Gamercard Generator? I am guessing it takes some server room for hosting it and so on, but I think it would be really cool to see an official one from this site.
