@redd214 Not really to be honest. It depends on how the DM runs the district (and the size of the district and how ambitious the SM is- I had two SMs that wanted to be DMs and they ran us into the ground to make their numbers look good.) I worked for GS for nearly 5 years in high volume districts and payroll is kinda cutthroat on hours because they lean heavily on numbers. I didn't care when I was an assistant manager because I had guaranteed hours and I didn't run a ship like that and I just took the heat from the SM but when I stepped down to keyholder I had to go back to the numbers or else mindset. But the high volume districts are like that. The store I went to is in a mid volume district so they aren't annoying enough that I wanna hit them, but the guy was trying way too hard with his pitch. Usually if I mention I'm a former employee it shuts that down...but this dude did not care. Its the season...it happens. I barely go into a gs unless I need something quickly or exclusive anyway. BB gets my money till my GCU expires next year.

Dood! Same here. I got to ASM in a high volume in the Charleston SC district during the Wii to Fallout 3 years. It def depends on the area DM and whether they’ve spent much face time in stores. Store managers know their audience.
The store where I live now is great, the staff are so nice. I currently have a desk job in a totally different field, but I can tell when I deal with field clinicians that never worked retail or food service in their life 😂

Anyway... 6 more bedtimes after tonight!!!

@HobbitGamer Hey hey, you survived! That is what is important right?! Every black friday I sleep in now, just because I can lol.

Anybody know if the servers open up at midnight...but what time zone? I gotta work on smash day but I may stay up late and snag a game or two.

@Ryu_Niiyama I did that for a few years, now my friends use me as muscle/babysitting during shopping.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the servers go up midnight in Japan

@Ryu_Niiyama @HobbitGamer I really have no idea how (or why) Gamestop thrives as though it sells insurance policies and annuities. It makes no sense for a specialty retailer in 2018.

@NEStalgia Well they are having more trouble as of late. The acquisition of ThinkGeek and Kongregate were odd and I think they took some shareholder heat. You can judge a location by the way their merchandising is displayed on the wall, typically. Whatever category draws more money per square foot is what will get more wall space. In mine, it’s obviously collectibles and merch.

I want to preorder smash but I think I'll just wait until summer, when I'm out of college for three months. Should be fun though!

@HobbitGamer The management makes the Sears Holdings management look like all-stars. They should really swap. Lampert 4 Gamestop. Tell your friends!

ThinkGeek almost made sense, and almost didn't. They have this commitment to the majority of their revenue coming from non-game merchandise. I know they're trying to fend off the digital future etc etc, but they could have easily been an almost monopoly in locally distributed digital distribution if they applied even a slight amount of creativity and leveraging their partnerships with publishers/platform holders. But no, they'd rather sell mana-tees. They seem to miss that they are undermining their actual reason to exist, as a games specialty retailer, by promoting themselves as a knickknack store that also sells games. They've set themselves up as the exclusive retailer of Scuff. That's a good move. Specialty gaming products that you can't get elsewhere that people want. But as long as the store is flooded with foam light sabers, it's just a pick-up depot for online buys. Which reminds me, I love how they force you into the store to be a club member rather than online. Nothing says "don't bother" like making it hard to pay them.

I preordered with game.co.uk as they were giving the game with the steel book but now that my order is processed, it’s just coming up as just the game. Not happy.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
