I once worked at an EB Games, eventually getting promoted to store manager. Stressful, but fun enough to keep truckin'. EB eventually got bought by Gamestop, the holidays arrived, the corporate hammer fell, at which point I blacked out for a couple weeks of what I have to assume was misery...the 15 hour days, 14 days in a row ran me pretty dry. I woke up in January only to find that upper management wanted me to fire my staff for a "fresh start, just because, the customers like fresh stuff, blah blah," which was ridiculous, considering how hard these already trained staff memebers were pushed in the holidays. I gave my staff warning of how we were going to be treated, then gave the ungrateful company the finger and quit, no regrets. Moral?

There are tons of short term holiday jobs out there...find one of them instead of Gamestop. Maybe they have changed over the years, but I'll never give them another chance.

@DanielL5583: Ha, I hear ya...no free space is a gamer's bane.

In any case, cheers, thanks for the input!

Gah, I really want to dive into this, as I love Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre, but also love the originality and craziness found in Nippon Ichi Games (I'm looking at you Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman!), but it's tough for me to find THAT amount of time to sit down in front a console. Still, I'm glad they are giving it a proper go for the console fans who have been supporting the series. Maybe one day, though, I'll pick it up anyway!

Anyone play any of the handheld ports and can recommend them?

Gah, you were at PAX? Wouldn't have loved to have run into you guys and say thanks for the great vids and work!

To the Point, until proven otherwise, my favorite game is Chrono Trigger (several runners up including Dark Souls, Final Fantasy VI and the Fallout franchise), but I tend to shy away from sports games, my last real dive being the arcade-style Wayne Gretzky Hockey for the Nintendo 64. Homework ready, gonna give the genre another go! Thanks for another great video!
