I have run into this once or twice with Gamestop. You walk in, purchase a used game, get home and hop on the multilayer to realize you’ve been had. There is no code to get onto MP and there was no sticker to notify you that the title used a one time code. Better yet, you buy a new copy of Battlefield 2 and the game isn’t even wrapped. I have experienced all of these while shopping at Gamestop. Well apparently some people are fed up and are taking the retailer to the courts to duke it out.
This Press Release is a definite MUST READ!!!!
Congrats Aubrey, we wish you much success!!!
Official Press Release from Deep Silver
LUNATIC VIDEOGAME PR JOINS DEEP SILVER AS PERMANENT EMPLOYEE
LARKSPUR, CA — February 16, 2010 – Deep Silver today announced that after a brief period of unemployment and a stint moonlighting as a one-legged rodeo mime, crackpot and absolute public relations travesty Aubrey Norris has accepted the company’s offer to continue work on their titles as their internal Manager of Marketing, PR and Coffee Cakes.

This is what happens when you get a slow news day on here. We post some random article or video that has at least a little something to do with gaming. Here, we have a new Wayside Creations video set in the Fallout universe. It’s very well done and very funny! It is around 16 minutes long, though, but definitely worth watching!
Greetings, loyal FooBear408 minions. It’s time once again to curl up around the proverbial campfire and listen to FooBear spin another yarn…but not just any yarn. Far from it – true believers – this yarn has quality fiber and has been sheared from the finest of sheep. The kind of yarn you’d be proud to weave into a real ugly holiday sweater or possibly some really well fitted gloves. You know? The ones with the individual finger thingies? I got to be honest, I don’t even know what in the blue hell that even means…”to spin a yarn”. I’m not even sure where I was going with the yarn thing and I’m even more positive that the payoff was pretty weak. So here’s the deal: I’m going to go ahead and start fresh on another paragraph.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve always had an affinity for video games. Being able to escape into an alternate reality and be someone else, even it’s just for a little bit. It’s also nice to make sure the right side of my brain is still fully functional. Even if half my brain power is devoted fully to finding the out the real reason why my PSN friend “Dvs-1″ has the ability to hide inside a bush and possess the jaw-dropping ninja skills to dump bullets on people and go 38-1 in the latest chapter of explosions and war: Call Of Duty: Black Ops. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off, screaming at my teammates because nobody has spy plane and the same dude keeps sneaking up behind me and slicing me like some sort of vindictive deli clerk. And of course, I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s why we play and love video games, right? The different frustrating gameplay variables, the visual aspects and ultimately – to be challenged enough to care to keep playing the game you just coughed up some serious clams for.
Neil Patrick Harris hosted the 2010 Video Game Awards last night on Spike TV. The show was exciting, for me anyway, mainly because of the many game trailers they premiered at the show. I was however surprised and disappointed by a few of the winners.
Game of the Year, went to the much deserved Red Dead Redemption, beating out the most nominated game Mass Effect 2, Halo: Reach, God of War III, and Call of Duty: Black Ops . Red Dead Redemption itself had nine nominations, including Best PS3 Game, Best Action Adventure Game, Best Graphics and Best Original Score.
A new category this year was the Character of the Year, with the win going to Sgt. Frank Woods of Call of Duty: Black Ops. How he beat out John Marston, from Red Dead Redemption is beyond me. He even beat out Kratos!
Best PS3 Game went to God of War III, which also won for Best Graphics. The other nominees for Best PS3 Game were Heavy Rain, ModNation Racers, and Red Dead Redemption, the only non-exclusive in the list.
What do you think? Were your picks chosen?
The full list of nominations and winners can be found after the jump.
