GameStop Exposed!

I said in my initial post that I have stopped buying games from GameStop and buy them from my local comics shop because I was sick of all their hard sell tactics and it’s just better to support local business than some mega corporation you don’t really like. Well, it turns out there’s someone who hates GameStop worse than many of us gamers probably do. His “name” is “Whistle Blower Zero” and he has created a nine part series (running about 90 minutes or so total) detailing the shady practices of the giant game seller, and a look at what it’s like to be an employee there. It’s all done in the same style as Yahtzee’s Zero Punctuation reviews, but what it lacks in originality it more than makes up for in information.

Whistle Blower Zero posted the series in its entirety on YouTube, but the first installment was yanked for reasons unknown. Therefore, it can be found on Mega Upload right here while the other eight parts are on YouTube here.

Check it out and tell your friends about it. Every game consumer should see this.
