I think there's one in the mall here in Philly. Xeios, Cairoi, and I stopped in it before, if its the one I'm thinking of...

That's all fine and good, but what happens when the company beats GameStop? Their glory will fade. :p

Since I'm not clocked in though...I can say this without getting fired. Trading games in at GameStop BLOWS monkey balls...and not in the good way. You get shit for your games.

I was gonna rant a bit about GameStop, but ehh...I'll save it for later...especially since my rant would be heresay...my District Manager is exceptional and he really takes good care of us, so my experiences with the company are great...but yeah...in order for Play and Trade to continue on like this, y'all NEED GameStop to continue sucking.

Alice tilted her head back and looked up at Hiru.

"No..." She whispered, slightly startled at the boy's description.

"I don't think it was as complicated as needing a spirit guide..." Alice muttered, in response to Bookworm's musings over the communicator.

"He...he convinced them that THEY were dangerous to him." She paused, suddenly remembering instances from her own childhood. "If they knew they needed to die to guide him...this may have turned out differently...but if they thought they were endangering him...they panicked. That could explain why they were so..."

Again, she paused, shuddering slightly as she mumbled "violent."

"He'll find us again..." Alice murmured to Mel. "Yeah...I haven't seen her all day anyway..." Alice was no longer reluctant to get in the van. HQ was sounding nicer by the second.

It just sucks.

**shrugs** Sometimes coming up with explanations makes things harder. I have family over there now and a very good friend of mine. We all write to each other every day almost, and so far so good. Everyone's safe, and one gets to come home soon.

Again, it just sucks. No matter which angle you take.

I wanted to shoot myself. I wanted to shoot myself when another fear about certain charries came true. (I don't know how to do the spoiler tag....if someone could tell me, that'd be awesome. ) He was one of the biggest reasons why I was on the fence about this movie.

There were very small details about the movie that I happened to enjoy thoroughly. Those kept the damned thing afloat for me (as far as story goes...I could see the movie again and again just based off of how "pretty" it was)

Slightly off topic I guess, but when I saw it tonight...I think I died happy before the movie started. I caught a glimpse of the best previews I've seen in my entire life.

HellBoy II? I don't care what anyone says...I LOVED the first one...and this one looks sooo much better. I know who to thank for that though...~_^

Alice grinned as Mel tugged her into HQ. Still slightly flustered over their excursion, Alice was happy to see Fernina again.

The ordeal still flew slightly above her head. Everyone was so focused on getting this treaty. Despite the suicides, which Alice believed to be suicides no longer, they were still attempting to make this treaty.

"Why is the treaty so important?" She thought aloud. "I mean...I guess...in some ideal world, we all could just get along...but a treaty is just a piece of paper. I mean, just because on paper we agree to see eye to eye, doesn't mean animosity is immediately abolished." She paused.

"Wouldn't it be better for everyone to just accept that there are different sides to every puzzle?" She asked softly.

Yah, Chris and I do...and we're all managery, so we're like...Super Sayan 3 GameStop employees.

If you have a problem with the workers, ask for a manager and call corporate. GameStop as a whole, naturally, as many may understand, is a coorporation. Therefore it's split...into MANY different sections. Chris and I, for example, have the same Regional Manager, but our District Managers are different. Our Regional Manager is amazing, and he holds his employees to high standards.

Not saying that we don't goof off at work and stuff, but I've never seen an employee who was a total dick last long in my region. Not that I'm taking offense to your words, per se, Nagis, but...it does get annoying. You have NO idea what I deal with. I have a scar from the last time I was robbed just outside my store. I've had customers sexual harass me...one even had the balls to shove me in the back room. Thank goodness I have employees who look after me there...but I'm damned good at my job, and the decent people, not the shitty people in the area, love my store and have nothing but good things to say about it.

Oh, and they do hire gamers. Everyone in my store is a gamer. Everyone in my store, in one way or another, knows what they're talking about. For instance, I am one of the PS3 "dudes" I know that system better than any at the moment...I know very little of Microsofts stuff. I know enough to sell the stuff, and I've picked up on one or two things about the systems from playing them and over hearing conversation. None of my co-workers are all-knowing about everything out there in gaming, but we're all real gamers and collectively, we know our shit.

I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm not saying that you didn't have shitty experiences. But I pride myself on being damned good at my job. In a lot of ways, it's not just a video game store...I run a multi-million dollar retail shop. Been doing so since I was 19 (This past winter. ) It's much more nervewracking than one may think, especially with this boom in the video game industry. But...again, not saying everyone is wrong in their own experiences, but unless one is omniscient, it's wrong to assume the same for every situation.

And back to my original opinion: Trading games at GS sucks. Play and Trade has it's good points. But due to the fact that there aren't supposed to be Monopolies anymore, without competition from GameStop, Play and Trade would have no reason at all to be as kickass as it is.

100% of us are getting ripped off. As far as the buying the wrong games...I guess...but isn't that opinionated? Today I raved on and on about "Uncharted" for the PS3, and one of my customers was like "Wtf, that game sucked."

As far as the being offended...I'm not defending GameStop on that at all, per se...that can happen everywhere. If anything is taken to the corporate office, it will be dealt with accordingly...all of the other bullshit that they get away with...well, that's got to do with the individual running things. Which can happen anywhere. Cuz retail blows. Which is what Play and Trade is. Retail. :p

Opinion's aside, they should lay off what Gameinformer says. Cause I noticed that some people copy their words "Word for Word" on how "Awesome this game is.

Trust me, I cought one.

And yeah, I agree that everyone has their own opinions about games, but when it comes to "Smash Brothers having a excellent match making system" versus "Oh god, I keep getting kicked off." it really does not add up, their Salesmenshit (ahem, in my area) are mind blowingly obvious that they are lying.



I couldn't agree more actually...THAT I have noticed...not making an absolute claim here, but that actually does happen in my store. Teehee. People argue that a game sucks, or is good, and I'll hear "Yeah, because GameInformer gave it a *insert rank here*"

It was so funny. I silenced my store today. I was bitching about "Haze" and the customer says to me "What, because GI said it was bad?" and I was like "No. Because I wasted time out of my life playing the shit piece in my 500 dollar system, and I think it sucks. THAT'S why "Haze" sucks."

Though, I have quoted GI myself a few times...but at least when people in my store quote GI, they'll make it clear they read GI and simply agree. But I've seen other nerds working in the stores, using the book as their freaking bible!

Hey...does Play and Trade have any sort of magazine like that? I'm sure they don't use GameInformer, right?

And 40% less if you get things in cash? I actually kinda like that, to be honest with you...from an employee's perspective...it's more of a deterrence than the 20% less than GameStop does...I HATE doing cash trade-ins...it causes sooo many problems.

Alice nodded, pondering Melina's words.

"Then...why run off on missions? If you're trying to protect someone...then protect them." Alice winced as she spoke. She couldn't understand why she was feeling so grim at the moment, but she decided not to waste her energy fighting it.

"There's more to protecting someone than in a physical sort of way. That's why I hate being what I am..." Her voice trailed off for a moment as she followed Melina.

"I don't know why I do it, and I sure as hell don't know how, or if it's even something I'm in any sort of control of." She continues, tucking a piece of her red hair out of her eyes. "People thought nothing of placing themselves in front of me to prevent any sort of bodily harm from coming to me. But it's not just that. If being a mind bender is all about being protected...then why can I feel lonely sometimes? Or bored. Or sad. It's like...those are the things people don't protect us from..."

Alice shook her head. "I'm sorry...I didn't mean to go off on that." She says, gently placing a hand on Melina's shoulder. "If the protection of your family and friends is the only reason why you're involved in this...just be careful. If you truly want to protect them, make sure you don't get too caught up in this. Be with them. They love you too, and you have to help to protect them from the heartbreak of something possibly happening to you."

"Better" Place

"Don't cry, Sweetpea"
He says to me.
"I'll be in a better place."
Like it won't be hard to face.
"Your mother needs you."
But I need you too!
"I want you to be good."
I truly wish I could.
"If only you knew how--"
How can you leave me now?
"much I loved you so."
You would never go.

This poem was one of my assignments...I'm only giving background on this one because it was simply more than just "write a poem." We had to take lines from several poems and parody them. Each one of my lines had to have the same rythm as the line I spoofed. While I drew my lines from several poems, most of my lines came from a poem about Walt Whitman. ^_^

Oh Disney, Walt Disney

What dreams I have of you this night, Walt Disney.
The twinkling stars that guide me into sleep, so sound, so sweet.
I see you, Walt Disney. Limitless, happy young creator.
Thinking of mice and ducks in the world you now live and eyeing Peter Pan's Lost Boys.
I know you thought up first drafts of each:
The princess of White. The Ears that took flight. How to Wish on Stars.
We glided all night through the ballroom floor
until the twelfth chime.
I lost my slipper of glass on the stairs
and never looked back to you.
Our happy ending, Walt Disney?
Was when you returned my shoe,
just as I awoke from slumber.

Alice smiled as she entered the room with Melina. Up until Melina said something about it, Alice forgot all about the bodies. She was glad. Glad that they were being treated with the dignity they deserved. But burrying them properly still wasn't enough. She raised questions earlier that she now vowed to figure out. If this keeps up, not even burrying them properly will honor their cause.

Azura shuddered as she stepped under the umbrella of light cast by the streetlamp just feet away.

"You know I hate that." She murmurs, refering to her name. Her silky gown of white could be seen peaking out beneath her long blue hair. Over the dark and grimy street, the gown maintained it's starchy color as though by magic.

"Striking deals again Hiru?"

Blue flashed a grin momentarily.

"Only long enough for you to explain your new friend." She says, hoping on the bike behind Hiru, sitting sidesaddle. Reaching behind her, Blue tied her long dark hair into a bun and tucked it so that it would stay in place.

I'd like to see more tournaments too. My store has a big Madden tournament the day after the Midnight release every year. When things are street dated, we can't play them before midnight, and when we start selling, people just want to go home at that point. But people start lining up at like 9 at my store for some odd reason...so we all had a real football tournament in the parking lot. Haha.

The Play and Trade around here is located in a mall...which could be ideal for some sort of tournament...or it could be a disaster. I'm kinda on the fence with that one. If they ever would, then kickass. If not, I could understand why. >.o
