    Default I have completely lost faith in humanity.

    So I bought my friend a used copy of Fable 2 at gamestop for X-mas. I didn't think to open it seeing as how I hadn't had any problems beforehand. Anway, he opens it up and there's a copy of fallout 3 in there.

    I'm at a loss for words.

    I would if it hadn't been two weeks since I bought it. In the unlikely event that they DID buy the story, it would be against store policy since I didn't get the warranty plan.

    Take it back and get the real thing. Fable II is worth it for the dog alone. (And also being your friend's henchman. Good times.)

    Edit: Can you trade in the Fallout 3 for some credit towards Fable II? At least then you're not totally lost. But I would try returning it, and explaining the story. I'm sure they understand that it's been two weeks since it was an xmas gift.

    First off, see above posts. Second, did they release some miracle patch that made the game not suck?

    Edit: Ok, i suppose that's one plan, though I'm now about $350 in debt from buying gifts in the first place so I can't put anything towards it. But my second question still stands.

    If all else fails ....

    does your friend like Fallout 3 ? Does he not have a copy yet ? If so maybe count your blessings and take it in stride .

    Yeah, I would try talking nicely to them.

    I just went to a gamestop today and they really just want to rush people out the store. I asked a lovely girl working there whether pre-xmas or post-xmas was worse, and with a sense of exhaustion to her she said post without a second thought.

    Poor girl.

    But then again I imagine employees might be a bit bias since they just went through both, but eh perhaps post is worse.

    Anyway, the point is they want to move the lines as quickly as possible. If you don't get the game changed ASAP then asking to get the EXTREMELY busy manager out would be more than enough I imagine.

    Also, right now there is someone out there with your game in their box, so said person might have already complained.
    I just want someone to hold me and tell me they love me. Especially when I am sad.

    really PJ? a retail mix up has caused you to lose faith in humanity? not mankind's capacity for depraved and destructive behaviors documented nightly on the news? not the mountains of socioeconomic disparity that allow you to post about your vidyagames while billions lack access to clean water?

    if you have your original receipt, you can return it within 30 days just put on your cool face and explain the situation.

    But...but...the game and box/manual do not match. The collectible aspect of it is gone.

    Heh.

    I really don't see the huge deal. Games of roughly equivalent value, both popular, could be an honest mistake.

    Isn't even as bad as when some jerk puts a broken model car in a transformers box.

    No, the people who are destroying the world aren't stupid, just stubborn.

    This is one of those instances where the "mistake" is something that shouldn't happen without a good reason.

    And they both start with a "Fa...", so odds are they were close together in their very simple filing system.

    normally I would agree with this but he already had a copy of fallout 3 and wanted fable 2. I get the feeling that he's become a masochist lately.

    For the third time, its because of the situation that it was bad. The person I bought it for wanted Fable 2 (for some masochistic reason) and already had Fallout 3.

    Pwus you might wose a tooth.

    Seriously speaking, I am going to laugh so hard when the bottom falls out of the jewelry market in about 50 years. I mean, you can already grow your own diamonds in a vat, and it's not hard to recalibrate a fusion device to give you gold from water when you know what you're doing.

    All of that hoarding and price fixing will be for not, my first and only friends.

    ...Oh, right. On topic.

    Fallout: Never played. Looks awesome though, and I loved oblivion (which seemed to have the same chassis and construction workers as the third one). Fable... Eh? Take it or leave it. Losing faith in humanity over mixing up the two? Grow a sense of proportion. I mean honestly. Plus, 99% of people will be willing to help you out in such a mixup, if you stay polite, and smiley, and you keep apologizing.

    But none of them work at GameStop, so it's time for him to start plotting the eventual destruction of our planet to make the suffering stop.
    FYI? If you bought a PSP used without a battery, then it's your mistake and not theirs. I'm gonna file my battery-less PSP under "Reasons I don't shop at GameStop anymore".
