  1. and what a disappointment :(

    the selection of games sucked and the "kids" in it were so duh.....total "wanna be freaks" if you know what im saying.....probably think that marlyn manson is "hardcore"- after he became mainstream and stoped doing "duets" with trent reznor....

    anyways, it was so lame....i brought in some old PSP games and PSP dvd's and regular DVDs along with red steel (i hated the game to be honest never even played it)

    not only do they stiff you BIG time on cash back but they stoped doing cash back for DVDs period!!

    it was a real horror show.....not a single game there and nothing of interest. i took back 14$ in cash (i only got credit for red steel and prince of persia on PSP) and 33.40$ in credit....ill use the credit when mario party comes out or something better maybe.

    i was just really disappointed with funcoland/gamestop.... :frown2:

    yeah I used to have a funcoland near me, but then there is a gamestop there now.

    I'm sticking to this one place for all the SNES games I'll get, and Best buy for the new games I'll get.

(you should see how long my hair is :D longest guy hair in the school)Most of my friends are metal heads two "The gods made heavy metal and it NEVER GONNA DIE!"-Manowar

    the latest offering from trent is pretty good. much better than "with teeth" IMO that was his worst work it had a couple decent tracks but as a whole it was horrible.

    I have a little patch of perfect called GameWorld here. It sells EVERYTHING! Games from all the way back to Atari and Game and Watch. They are about to move, "not enough space" Im their most frequented customer. Classics, nothing like em.

    Funcoland? Wow, there are some strange game stores in the US. We have GAME as the main game supplier in the UK but I think they are rip-offs. I usually go to GameStation because their prices are always reasonable.
