HERE I COME!

  After braving the horrors of the streets at night. The dirzzly rain and cold wind. I got the sneak into gamestop two COUNT THEM 2 mins early!!!!!!!!!! 
 After meeting with their leader and agreeing to a epic quest..I was given the tools of the hero.... 
 
 
Ya...ok then... 
 
I was one of 3 people who showed up at midnight to nab this game. Along with a fight stick! Shameless pics below 
 

 
 Da box and the game. Sorry. Photos taken via droid phone. 
 

Included was a nice little piece of paper showing their signature moves (Not updated for SSF4) But nice none the less! 
  
And da stick! I like the art. And the white button. Apon touching it I was slammed with memories of young me standing in the arcade hammering away at the older Street fighter games. Ahhh memories... 
 
Anyways. I am Cyberneticzero on the PS3. Please be gentle.

I am sick of it

 For those who do not wanna read all of this. It boils down to. I was lied to quite a few times. And assured my laptop would be repaired and WAS repaired. And had it returned to me in the same broken state.
 

 
A little wile back my laptop's fan started to act up. Making a very loud and annoying humming sound. It drowned out anything on this site and quite a few games. I also got a virus from a friends email.
 

About three weeks ago I sent in my laptop for repairs. After about 3 days it arrived at the HP repair center. After about 20 back and forth emails I was told to contact phone support for something that was found. 
 
After spending about 20 mins on hold I was put though to a Indian women I could not understand at all. After asking nicely to speak to someone who spoke English she refused until I gave my account info (Ticket num and email) Of course After another 30 mins I was put to a super visor who I had just a hard understanding. Where in I just hung up. 
 
 
The next day I called during normal business hours and got a nice women who told me there was " Spillage" Dected under the keyboard. Course right away I knew it must be from when I cleaned the keys before I sent out the laptop. She said it would cost 300 odd bucks to fix this since it was not covered by the warrent. I said no. And asked if my warranty did cover the Fan repair and OS reinstall. Again I assured that "YES" it was. So happy I thanked her for the help and asked that the fan and OS be fixed. She said ok and that was it.
 
Another 10 emails into the customer support I asked" Was the fan and OS fixed?" In which I got

I shit you not...the entire email chain was filled with horrible grammar and spelling issues. But again. They said it WAS fixed. After this I thanked them and waited for the laptop to be returned (This was on the 9th. Strangely the laptop was not shipped till the 13th.  Wondering why this happened I message support again asking what was up. They said the laptop went though a "VIGOROUS" quality test. And that the fan and OS worked fine now. 
 
So I happily awaited my laptop. About 30 mins ago I got the box. Opened it and turned it on. Right off the back the humming returned and I saw that my desktop had not changed at all. Unhappy I called support and after sitting though a nice long hold I was told.
 
"Your warrenty was voided because of the "Spillage" And no repairs can be made. We returned the laptop to you in the condition we got it" 
 
So now I am here..with a laptop with a near broken fan....no warrenty...and a virus that might reactivate at anytime. 
 
I have lost all hope in HP....Their " Superior" customer care is bull and I am at a lose. Thank you for reading.

Third party online failness

Well. After lazyin around for about...a month I finely went to grab Mass effect 2 for PC. I picked to grab a Digital copy at gamestop because it seems they are selling it for 29.99. They had download insurance so I grabbed that to Bringing the total to 33.49.  
 
I put in my credit info and hit send. I am smacked with a message " We can not verify your card" So I am " eh" Must have put it in wrong. I try a few more times. After getting this message 4 more times I went to my online back to make sure I had the money. And to my surprise I see that I have been charged 5 times for 33.49. (I did not even get the game!!!) Outraged I contacted gamestop. Where customer support was VERY nice *Not sarcasm* And right away told me that their third party Digital download provider claimed this had been a past issue and claimed it was fixed....guess not. 
 
 
 I was directed to their customer service and called them. Were I find out guess what!!!! They do not work weekends...So me...out 167 bucks. Stews for a few moments. Then I call my bank. After waiting about 10 mins I am connected to the fraud department. Were "Jeff" Quickly removes the 5 charges and wishes me a nice day. Still in awe of how quickly I got my money back I am now posting this. More of a warning.

Be wary of this. I know this might sound like" Once wronged all ways angry" But hey. If you are on the Gamestop website (I find they have nice deals once and a wile) Think twice before downloading anything 
 
 Edit.
First person to make a clever quip about my stupidness Will have it added to this first post!

Life of a snowed in gamer

*Takes deep breath* 
 
Hello and welcome to my first blog. I have never ventured into this because well. Normally I do not think people would care much of what I think. However. Now that I am pretty much unable to go anywhere. I have nothing better to do.  
 
Here in New York *And most of the east side* We have been hammered by snow for the last two days. And according to weather reports..there is no end that will come soon. Reports stating up to 3 inches of a snow and hour are what has been spread around.  
 
So..after getting my fill of MAG and some PC games I picked to come here and share my stories of Cabin Fever. 
 
 
Last night we had a bit of excitement. After a nice wave of snow I trotted outside to take some pictures 

    

     MMM MMM snowy goodness
 
After which I fell quickly into the snow *Now a nice 5 inches deep* All most losing my Droid.  
 
Returning safely inside I got some nice tea and started to watch District 9.  
 
A bit in I noticed a nice amount of flashing lights and radio sounds outside. When I peeked out my window I found that my entire street had been blocked off. Once again heading outside *Minus the phone* I checked to see what was up. Two fire engines had blocked off the entire street with a hand full of firemen walking up and down the street. Not wanting to freeze I picked to go back inside. However heading up the stairs I noticed a strange spark comming from a power line a bit down the street. It seemed that the snow had someone broken the power box and we had a nice little fire work show going.  
 
Soon the entire street had " caution" tape up and traffic was being diverted onto side roads *Which have not been plowed*  
 
After the excitement had died down I went back to my computer.  
 
Finely when all was quiet I checked out my window to find 
 

 
Outside strangely quiet and calm.  
 
And now I post in the morning. My power never having gone out. The car fully snowed in. And most of the area shut down. Under at least 7 inches of snow.  
 
 
 
Well thanks for reading. I know my life is pretty boring. Please try not to fall asleep wile reading. Have a nice day!
