The Twilight Princess ending is being broadcast in their stores in it's entirety.

I hate them more and more, I swear.

Wait, it gets better. The original complainant on the GameFAQs message board


Well if that's not credible, I don't know what is.

Edit:  And not to say I don't believe the story, just..there's no credible sources in the entire article.  I wouldn't put it past GameStop though.

Love the picture.

Personally I'm not going to take my chances with it.  Almost done with the game I think.

I overlooked the gamefaqs parts and yeah, it could be a just more bs from the stupidity of the gamefaqs peeps. It still makes for a funny story.

Maybe one of us go to confirm it ourselves.

Sorry if I'm bumping an old topic but I've been gone for a while.

Anyways, yes, it's true. One of the local EB Games stores does this where I live.

I pretty much thought the same thing.  The source itself is dubious, but since it's GameStop it wouldn't really surprise me.  I guess it's a good thing I wasn't planning on going to one any time soon. :p

Honestly I never pay attention to what's playing on the monitors.  I pretty much never stop to browse since I am usually on a mission to by a particular game.  Still for those that actually don't have tunnel vision, I bet it really sucks.

Yeah, I never really look at them much either. Besides, it's not like you can't look away if they are about to spoil a game for you. I fail to see the point though if they're trying to sell games. Intro movies or trailers would make more sense.

See, everybody plays that stuff...
Gamestop is going to bring in customers because they're showing exclusive content! Nobody shows you stuff like the ending to a game! People will flock to their stores simply to see which game ending will be played that day, week or month...and while they're in the shop, things will, of course, be purchased.

It's ingenious!!11@! They'll make millions!

Every other store that sells games has at least 12 dooms, now. Maybe 13.
They're just that doomed.
