How To Get Fired From EB Games

Jun 13, 2017, 8:46pm

Seems everyone has an ebgames firing story,

I was 17 and got picked by a secret shopper during the halo 3 release chaos, they wanted a ps3 which were almost out of stock everywhere, rather than sit on the phone to other stores knowing if any had one, they werent going to give it up, so i let them know the bigw in the shopping center had about 3 that we saw yesterday.

Manager called me the next day saying the area manager couldnt fire me over it but could cut all my shifts back to zero.

a year later i got a call from a brand new manager asking if i could do a shift, then they seemed annoyed i was still on the roster when i told them.

It's Absurdly Easy To Get Around Australia's Torrent Site Blocking

Dec 29, 2016, 3:14pm

If i had the NBN id happily sign up for a legitimate streaming service

If streaming services covered majority of the movie/tv content instead of them all fighting for exclusivity and forcing the end user to sign up for 2-3 services to watch everything they want to watch.

If Geo blocking wasnt a thing and people could freely watch the international content they want that isn't available on their local streaming services

Maybe then piracy numbers would go down

rule #827

If releasing on steam, try and tick as many API features as humanly possible, Controller Support, Steam Cloud, Achievements, Trading Cards, Caption, Languages (Steam has a language translation service)

Some are hard to impliment, some are easy, and the more that get ticked the more appealing the game can be
