Just go buy any previous copy of Fifa and you'll have exactly the same game.

I actually saw a GAME shop today for the first time in years. Thought I'd check it out. They had a few phones, tablets and used consoles in the window, but not too many. Definitely a lot more used games than they used to stock, and lots of 'accessories', i.e. guides, keyrings, cables, soft toys, and those generic-as-fuck Pop! figures that every shop seems to have. Do people really buy those? They look awful, and seem way overpriced. Anyway, I've no intention of ever buying anything from GAME, but even if I did, the prices seemed pretty high which would've probably put me off. At least it smelled better than CEX, which nearly had me doing a 180 as soon as I walked in the door. How does a shop smell that bad? :dread:

Overheard an argument in the Sutton GAME with a woman and a member of staff at the till who had purchased a game but had been charged a £1 more than was advertised on the box. By the sounds of it they'd lumped on something called "Disc Care" automatically. WTF this gooseberry fool, then?

Yeah I've seen them offering that, "Would you like to protect your disc for £1?", basically an accidental damage warranty if you scratch the disc.
Probably has enough get out clauses that they never have to pay out on it though.

Never miss a trick these guys, huh.

I wonder if it's that Disc Doctor thing I saw advertised in the early 00s that cost about 20 quid. According to reviews it did work on mild scratches. It made sense back then as the PS1 itself honestly seemed to put hairline scratches on discs no matter what you did, but today 'scratch disc cover' is a blatant, cynical money grab from grannies.

I would guess they almost never have to pay out on it, blu-rays are like, impossible to scratch unless you take a knife to them.

"Players must be 16+ to enter tournaments. No exceptions, no excuses. Sorry."

Not sure if that's an apology for just that or the whole thing in general

Did they really pick a TLD of gg because of the slang?

I'm annoyed there is no Southend team. It leads itself to obvious gags.
