If you HONESTLY BELIEVE they stole those game boxes or codes then why haven't you called the police? You remember them right? Big guys in blue or black uniforms. Ring a bell?

But you haven't done that because you have no idea if they stole those codes or not. Fact is, they probably purchased their game codes the same as you. You're really here to whine about the fact that someone else got a shiny before you did.

May I respectfully suggest to you sir that the best course of action is to simply grow up and deal with it?

Many many times throughout your life you're going to encounter people who get things before you do, or get better stuff than what you have, and if you don't learn to deal with it then your life is going to be one long hard road of pain.

This will simply be a benefit of working for the store most game stores allow there employees to take games early they still have to buy them just get them sooner, i do not have a problem with this, im a Manager and i get bonuses etc for working where i work.

Like other people have said it's purely a case of the employees getting their stuff early because they work there. Not really surprising. Also as others have said stop jumping to the forums as soon as you have a rage, think before you thread.

If Cryptic and all other associated companies attached w/ this title does not care, I don't either. But I would think they would make a complaint since it is an apparant abuse and not fair to the majority of customers. However, I guess it all depend on the backlash.

I dont think it is fair of them to have access ahead of everyone else. But I am not mad about it. In just a few days I will have all that stuff too.

If they want to abuse the system, then ok. It doesn't affect me. But I don't shop at Gamestop because they open new games and loan them to employees and still sell them as new.

Though honestly, if I worked at Gamestop and I had pre-ordered the game through my store then I would be taking home my copy as soon as it came in too.
but usually things should be coming with a do not sell before date sticker.. most good stores wont even allow their employees take the game out before its release
