Gamestop loves to sell you brand new copies of games that are open. I went to buy Lost Odyssey and it was labeled "New" Of course it's the last copy they have new (which seems to always be the case no matter what) so they have to take the display case and the discs from behind the counter, well what do you know 2 of the 4 discs are miraculously missing. A new game with half the game content missing, that must make it worth alot of money!!!!! No? It makes it worthless? Then why'd I have to pay full price?

Fuck Gamestop I refuse to go there ever again. (and I haven't been since!)
Amazon is cheaper, and you actually get new games sealed with all of it's original content.

Sounds like a big waste of time. Why didn't you ask an American to buy it for you and mail it to you?

Because I wanted a straight answer as to why they wouldn't ship to Canada.

I still have never gotten one.

Too many people buying and playing Halo and hardly any playing anything decent . Honestly and you people complain about gaming going downhill this generation.

Hahaha
Told you it gives wrong expression. If anything it would mislead.

I am too busy playing too many games. Already started about 40 in my vacation and beaten many of them and musty 100%. Catch almost all pokemon (missing some that are only obtainable from versions that will only release later next year) Got platinum in uncharted, almost collected all cards in Kindgom herats Re:Chines of memories, got all offline trophies in little big planet etc etc. Cannot start them all at once. I am only human. Collage started now so less gaming more depression for me.
