hey will, i think that you should only just focus on one game per week and give a more indepth review on it. Games that are this good actually deserve that treatment.

But if you’re reviewing games that suck, go for doing more than 1.

I noticed that when you review more than 1 game per week that is actually good, the review seems rushed and not 100%.

Other than that, keep doing what your doing

A-fucking-men… thank you for bitch slapping gamestop. That store sucks balls. Just shop at Walmart. The one by me sometimes puts the games out the night before they are actually available (i got metroid prime 3 on monday night, for example). Hooray!!!

Just wanna say…once you’re used to the controls on Mercury meltdown revolution, and understand the colorization techniques, you’re perfectly fine and you’ll whizz through the game very quickly. Also, another thing, is that if you got it for $20? Consider yourself f***ing lucky. We have to pay £35 over here, that’s nearly $70 equivalent in the UK. So anyone who complains about the prize of it? You suck as much as gamestop.

Oh my god, I cried of laughter when Will went “Leave the Wii aloooonnneee!”

Haha, oh my god. But yeah, Gamestops preorder system should be terminated. Even in EB Games here in Sweden (I think they are now owned by Gamestop?) they don’t have that kind of system. But it just seems to really.. Well, hurt their buisness. I know pre-orders might be a good way to speculate on how much copies you should buy, but none? That’s just crazy. Especially for Burnout Paradise for the PS3. The PS3 is dying for good games and they don’t even buy any into the store? What the hell 😛

Gamestop sucks! other than the warraties that you can get on your games.

I prefer Gamefly or Ebay. I don’t mind waiting for better pricing.

Never understood why people are so loyal to gamestop. They’re just as bad as the massive corporations. Growing up I hated the way they would offer you so little for your games and sell them for so much higher. That’s why I never step foot in them. Will, just go with whatever’s nearest that typically has games on launch day. Stop wasting your time with pre-orders, Bestbuy’s gotten so large that they’re the overlord of electronics shops. They always have a plethora of launch day copies.
