I always take solace in the fact that 99.999999999999999% of the people that do that sort of stuff on the Internet, were they ever to be in my physical presence, would not say a fucking word. Not that I am some Big Billy Badass, but those type of people usually hide behind the perceived anonymity the Internet gives them. I also always wonder if they just don't have anything better to do with their time.
I wish there was a store like this around here in Indiana. I would much rather give my money to a locally owned & operated indie Mom & Pop type place. I'm sick of GameStop, they have the nerve to fuck you in the ass on trade-in value for your games and then don't even have the god damn common courtesy to give you a reach around. And I refuse to set foot in a Best Buy, that shit is so overpriced it's not even funny.
I don't like Halo either, but if this guy "hated" Deus Ex that really makes me doubt his taste in video games. However, to each their own, and everyone is entitled to an opinion. If that is his honest opinion, then so be it. If it's him giving out a low-ball score just to get hits on his blog/site, then piss on 'im.
UPDATE: (for those interested) I'm totally tracking my iPod Touch as we speak. Apparently, I must have turned on the location feature a long time ago and forgot. Wish I had known that the night it happened!!!!!! Anyway, I watched it sit in one location at 11% battery life, then before it died, I watched it travel a few houses down and now it is charging. Obviously, I called the police/detectives right away to let them know and last I heard they were trying to work something out. We shall see what comes of this. Either way, TECHNOLOGY IS FUCKING AMAZING!!!!!!!
Wow that is great news, hopefully they are able to track down some of your stuff this way. If they can get the IPad maybe one thing leads to another and Thief Bastard X rolls over on Crackhead Fucker Y that sold it to him, so on and so forth (no honor among thieves). Maybe that will lead to getting even more of your stuff back. Please keep us updated if you get the chance, I'd like to hear if this plays out in a relatively somewhat kinda better light for you.
Valkyria Chronicles 'til the cows come home. You can get it at Newegg, factory sealed, for $15.99! (Link). Be aware that their free shipping option will take 6 or 7 days to get to you, because they use UPS Mail Innovations, which is the least innovative thing in motherfucking existence.
