Since I work at Target and yesterday was Thursday, I looked at the shipment like I do every week to see what's coming out. Batman: Arkham Origins comes out today, Angry Birds Star Wars is getting the console treatment next week, I saw copies of Battlefield 4 and for some reason 5 people pre-ordered the Pac-Man Wii U game.

I'm just going to assume everyone knows that stuff, but I figured hey why not provide one more orifice on the internet for people to cram their opinions into?

Many stores are now getting PS4 controllers as well. Get any of those? I'm wondering what the level of hype is for anything next-gen.

I've also read that they work on the PS3 with a lot of PS3 games, but not all of them.

Same. I assume (too lazy to google it) it's Pacman Championship Edition DX HD... WiiU ... Superspectacular ... Origins* or something, but you know, that game on the WiiU could be very appealing.

*... Reckoning.

I think it's actually Pacman CE DX HD WiiU Underground Storm Elite. But seriously, if that game is 5 player with 4 ghosts vs a pac man who uses the screen controller then that game could be alright.

I have just spent the last few minutes watching videos of the Pac Man game on Youtube. It has put me in a pretty miserable mood.

The Pac-Man game appeared to be a platformer for the Wii U.

Oh and @SpaceInsomniac I did not see anything related to next gen. I'd be all over that shit if I did, probably possibly including mentioning it upfront in my OP.

So, I assume you know of the big game sale you have coming up. That's going to be like a second Black Friday for you guys, isn't it? You have my sympathy.

@spaceinsomniac: You mean, a console launch followed by another console launch? Each with hitherto uncertain but possible midnight openings? With 10 PM Thanksgiving Black Friday right around the corner? Yeah November is gonna suck.

:(

You honestly don't know? I mean a console launch, followed by another console launch, with a buy any two video games--including PlayStation 4 games--and get one free sale in the middle.

Good luck with that. :)

Ultra PacMan, duh.

I too poke around the stock room where I work, but the games in there are... less spectacular. I've seen games such as Street Sweeper Simulator. :/

What? It's not even real Pac-Man, some kind of platforming bullshit?

You should probably steal something.

@hunter5024: Don't fuck with Target loss prevention. They will take you down.

#18 Posted by Hunter5024 (5976 posts) -

@veektarius: They're pretty nice about it actually, given the circumstances.

You should put out games before their street date.

I work at Target as well and I do the same thing every week. Yesterday we got in a box full of PS4 copies of CoD Ghosts. I don't give a shit about the game but I got overly excited holding a next-gen game case. When we actually get the consoles in next week, work is going to suck more than usual.
