This is a gaming blog with the intention of entertaining, informing about things I find to be important and/or fun. I'm also going to spew out my personality at you, so expect some off topic things. (I'm a kid at heart) Note: This may or may not be safe for work. No gratuitous nudity and explicit sex, but be warned. I'm quite liberal minded.
new: I also have an anime blog (http://mlyylikesanime.tumblr.com/)
If you play Pokemon X and Y and you are intending on getting a shiny Gengar from the Gengar event at GameStop, PLEASE READ THIS POST!
I went to GameStop today intending to get my free shiny Gengar (as all of the posters said, free. FREE as in NO PURCHASE NECESSARY) and the employee behind the counter told the customer in front of me that they could only get a card for a shiny Gengar if they pre-ordered Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. That sounded like really shady bullshit to me, so I got out of line, eyed the poster, saw absolutely nothing about pre-ordering being necessary, said “bullshit,” and left. Later, I googled the event and found an entire reddit thread of people who had the same experience. On this thread, I discovered that GameStop said on its own Facebook page that there is no purchase necessary, and that evidently, some stores have been told to tell customers they had to pre-order. Surprise surprise, GameStop has shitty business practices. Someone on the thread eventually found a store with a manager that insisted that they were supposed to be free and that the other stores were scamming customers.
If this happens to you, DO NOT pay for anything. GameStop is a terrible business as we all know and they do not need your pre-order money. Show them the poster IN THEIR OWN STORE that says “no purchase necessary,” or if it doesn’t, pull up this picture on GameStop’s Facebook page in which it says no purchase necessary on the poster.
I reported this store to Nintendo’s customer service, and they were totally on my side. They said that there is absolutely no purchase or pre-order necessary, they took the store’s information, and took my information in case they need to verify anything more with me. She said that if I know of any other stores that are doing this to report them as well. They even took my serial number just in case they can get me a code directly. Nintendo customer service 10/10. GameStop 0/10.
Here’s Nintendo’s number in case the same thing happens to you: 1-800-255-3700. I don’t recommend calling GameStop, because you never know whether they’re going to be unbiased about it. Nintendo, on the other hand, wants people’s free Pokemon to be free.
Please tell other people about this so they don’t get scammed. Goddamn I hate GameStop.
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
Todd Kincannon later conceded that, if concentration camps aren’t going to work, “mental institutions will do just fine”
Trust me, there’s more than just trans people he wants to see in camps, but this is what will give him the least backlash.
PASS THIS ON LIKE A JOINT AT A COLLEGE PARTY, FOLLOWERS. I WANT TO SEE THIS FUCKER FACE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES FOR THIS DISGUSTING THING.
I always thought the “but satisfaction brought him back” part was a joke from the Munsters.
Here’s another one: “Jack of all trades, master of none,” is just one half of the saying. The other half reads “but better than a master of one.”
Okay one more: “Ignorance is bliss” is also only half of the saying. It’s “When ignorance is bliss, ‘tis folly to be wise.”
"Great minds think alike… but fools seldom differ."
I’m shocked people didn’t know about satisfaction bringing back the dead kitty.
All the quotes in the commentary I knew the full versions of as well, since a fairly young age.
