Actually, "hold" is the way the computer sends the signal to the programs. "Press" merely checks if the user didn't hold it in the last frame and is holding it in the current frame.
>went to GAME yesterday to get WiiU (wanted the charging cradle they bundle in)
>guy who served me has been working there for years, have talked to him before when buying shit because he really knows his stuff
>threw in an extra accessory kit for free
Nope; it just keeps sending the scancode to the OS's event queue. So in a period of 100ms your game's event queue has to handle something like [Ctrl,Ctrl,Ctrl,Ctrl,Ctrl,Ctrl,Ctrl,Ctrl,Ctrl]
First Ctrl makes your guy crouch, the rest are either discarded early in the handling code or just tell a crouched guy to crouch again, leading to either no effect, or in some games a prone position.
For toggle you just schedule timer events after each keypress to check for state, or if you have many toggles use an associative array between keys and timestamps, and check that periodically.
At least that's what good programmers do, and I don't play games by shit programmers.
I bought a Vita from GAME and they gave me a bigger memory card than advertised and two different accessory kits.
I got the impression that the guy has never sold a Vita before and had no idea what stuff he was meant to give me with it.
There is no hold signal, there are repeat one-time signals.
And it's not the computer that sends them to you, it's the keyboard that sends them to the OS's interrupt handler.
Do you even IRQ?
pcfats pretending they want their games to be digital, you get no choice and you get less that what the physical copy gives you. Steam can also just take all your games from you if they feel like it and ban you.
Pc gaming is shit
Holy shit, how specific are you gonna be? How is the same one-time signal over and over not a constant signal? It's like you're disagreeing with me because I said "fruit" and not "apple" specifically.
They are completely different things. A signal that reads "hold" as you put it, bears a different information value than one that says "pressed". The latter can support polling for example, which is what USB keyboards do, since USB doesn't carry an interrupt line.
It's like you said fruit and meant homosexual.
I think I might have to drive to Newcastle now just to point and laugh.
You're misinterpreting now. I put "hold" in brackets for a reason. By that I meant that when you're "holding" a key the keyboard is sending a constant signal, not that the signal is literally of value "hold".

This isn't the game I remember.
I preordered one from Game, got the preorder pack thing (I don't even remember what was in it bar some absolutely terrible earphones), then cancelled and switched to a Sony store for a better bundle, and got another preorder pack.
Game are expensive as fuck.
Well, in that case, you shouldn't have misinterpreted my original post as "toggle crouch", which I never implied I use. You press a button, your guy crouches, you depress it your guy stands up.
I only got so serious about this debate because you had the nerve to call me pleb.
Oh sorry, you responded to my response to someone who called me pleb; I naturally thought it was the same person. Maybe he's too ashamed to respond.
It's okay, I'm friends with both of you. :3
Thing goes like this. You come to our store.
We say "Hi" from the counter, if you look like you are looking for something we might ask "can we help you?" If you look like you just want to take a look or that you know what you want, we jsut keep doing our stuff.
You ask for a game, we have it. Right away sir, ask for your member card if you have one, and offer it if you don´t.
Some minor chit chat while the computer finish it´s stuff, and we will ask if you are interested in preordering any upcoming titles.
Yes, no, what is coming soon might be your answer and we will react accordingly.
You get your game, you get your ticket, everything in it´s bag, and good bye sir, see you soon.
You can be proffesional and still try to be nice to the customer, and help them if they need it.
This was fairly recently, the bundle they were selling was the same as the cheapest one I could find online. And then they gave me a 32bg memory card instead of 16gb so it was even better.
Normally I would never even think about buying anything there.
Speaking of CEX why do their stores always smell awful
>getting involved in HMV
The Gamestation in Dartford was a great store before it disappeared and before GAME bought them long before that. Run by a proper big guy who could look like a neckbeard but he was well alright and knew his stuff.
The store's been sucked of any personality since then. I miss their cabinet of retro games and never forgave GAME after they destroyed all copies in every one of Gamestation's stores they took over.
>HMV want experience
I've been to three different stores and they've been alright
Also CEX know good games from bad games.
There is a PC section at my local GAME
But all there is is paid f2p games and simulators
>Go into the game and see ouya for sale

>"Bunch of theiving bastards as well i see, we can offer £78 for your stuff
Why is CEX so based?
The people that work at my local Game are pretty cool and I've hung out with them a few times. The people that actually shop their though make me weep.

Does anyone else go into cex and find a game that you never knew existed and it blows your mind? I picked up a baki the grappler game yesterday
CEX are the biggest autists ever
I know a girl who just got a job there and she is a typical grill gamer who claimed they talked about there favourite MLP episodes at the interview. She also knows nothing about games other then Minecraft and Call Of Duty and now thinks she is the fucking authority on games.
>tfw one day you'll walk into CEX and the ps2, xbox and gamecube sections will be gone
>There a people that actually go to GAME
I haven't been to a store in seven years, why bother dealing with faggots that know fuck all about vidya when you can buy online?
I love going to CEX, some of them have a bad reputation of stinking and playing nothing but heavy metal whilst the obese staff chat away like the Tottenham Court Road one in London. But some of them are pretty good and have staff that know what they're talking about and won't judge you for selling your collection of anime after you grew out of it. I think I managed to get around £400 for in total.
Not to mention some qt3.14 work there
I remember finding alundra at CEX last year. Never heard of it before, when i asked the cashier he told me it was his favourite game, and was "Like the old 2D zelda's, but with proper puzzles and good combat" so i decided to buy it since i love me some zelda
It is now my all time favourite game.
>that 1 qt that works at GAME
CEX always smells like sweat and shame
The MK CeX is so fucking shit, its filled with autists and bronies who spout memes at you while you checkout all your shit. From the sounds of things every other CeX has brotier staff but my local CeX just pisses me off.
GAME stores can vary wildly from great to fucking awful
CEX tends to have nicer staff on average (usually their first jobs and students) but you can get some real freaks in them
Only if you want the banter.
We joke with the client a lot, and even have long chats about this or that game we used to play, how the last title of "franchise" is not on par with the earlier games, and i don´t know, just frien
dly talk, if you want it and we don´t have too much people.
>Mario Kart 8 is fucking £60
where the fuck do you live?
its like my town got blessed with the most causal staff and autistic workers rather then the cool people. Workers at my local game have no clue what most shit is, don't even attempt to converse and are more interested in selling fifa and COD then other games.
I found Enslaved:Odyysey to the West for £2 and fell in love with the game. Now I go to CEX once a month to pick up all the games under £3 that I don't own. It's let me build up a library for cheap without paying the silly prices GAME charges.
I dunno if it's just my local CEX but every time i go it seems to be filled with junkies selling off clearly stolen goods like unboxed phones without the charger or anything, for drug money.
This is Dundee though so i fully expect that it is probably only my store
>buying Bayonetta from CEX
>qt says she loved the game
>I say okay and leave
I'm so autistic
easy as fuck
The application form at my local one was less a application more a form of Injokes and inter-store memes you had to answer with funny answers to get the interview.
>CEX always smells like sweat and shame
Nah mate, that's you.
>their faces when manlets get offended
There are probably some in this thread right no that got offended
>Stuff like this is why I tell people I'm not into games anymore
So you're not into video games anymore because a video game store would have a comical video game reference?
Game mostly sells console games. It sounds like you are upset because your particular preference isn't being given mainstream attention. Or it is and you're just a fucking hipster.
Either way, grow up or move on.
>went to GAME on a really slow day
>during Steam sales
>buying second hand PS3 games for a friend
>cashier has previously served me and knows I have a PC and buy on Steam

Also they have PC games which instantly makes them good.
>Go to CEX
>They are trying to flog macs, tablets and phones for near full price
At least knock a bit more off the price, we all know you brought them for next to nothing from chavs trying to pay their court fees.
>the big guy doesn't need fake tits
Sounds like you have a hard time having access to good vidya shops, /v/. I only have two near my home, here in Belgium, but they're the best shops ever for what I need.
One's also doing toys, but the most important thing is it has a huge library on games at abordable prices (I found a new copy of Pokemon Black at 15 €, to give you an idea) plus some e-money cards for any console (they even still have those DSi cards you can't find anywhere) and sometimes not used games from older generations (I've seen once new copies of freaking Pokemon Gold and Silver sold there, at 5 € piece).
The other one is focused on vidya, and its owner, in addition of being a total bro, has so many contacts he can get you nearly everything, including those rare as shit special editions. Plus he always is there if you need advice on games, and you can leave him a list of the games you're looking at, so he puts them aside for you if someone sells them back. Hell, I've even saw him once offer to act as an intermediary for someone buying things on Internet, so he isn't scammed.
That's all you. Game is full of guys whereas CEX usually has emo/scene girls working there. Hell I've picked up a lot of bangs from just CEX alone.
Though there was this qt that worked in Game and I just fell in love with her at first sight. I went it to pick up WatchDogs and ended up spending 30 minutes chatting to her whilst spending an additional £120 on games and PS Plus. Got her number in the end and invited her over for drinks only to hear "Hey, is it cool if I bring my boyfriend?"
Should have dropped everything and left....
Man you lot are fucking plebs
Any fellow Weegies here that have experienced the wonder that is based Gforce? That place is the fucking best i swear
>Workers have been working there for like a decade now at least
>All know shitloads about games

>Trade in prices usually a good 50-60% higher than CEX's
>Always willing to haggle, managed to get like 7 games the other week down from the £80 they were asking, to £55 with pretty much no effort other than "hey man you wouldn't be able to lower the price would you?"
>Always have tons of rare ass shit like anime OST's
Was just there yesterday, found digital devil saga 1 and 2, £5 each. Picked them both up and the guy told me had the DDS soundtrack in back and threw it in for free.
Im the same guy from >>254347209 and i applied to CeX but couldn't finish the application. As i said it might just be because my store has cringe worthy staff but it was asking questions like 'who is the best pony' and 'how much sweg do you have?' so i just didn't bother handing the form in.
I have yet to play it as i have been busy. Got it for 50p too. pic related is the cover
CEX in sauchiehall street, Glasgow. It's a fairly new store, they had some really old stuff sitting behind the counter and in a glass cabinet. Also had some SNES games, which i have never seen in a UK retailer before
Enjoy your socialist hellhole once the SNP start importing darkies.
You know, GAME have a system where they'll beat trade in price on any store within a mile, or some shit like that. You could have gone back, told them that CEX would give you £78 for the stuff and you'd have gotten more
Holy shit i never thought i'd see Gforce mentioned on /v/. That place is the fucking best, shame i haven't had a chance to go in like a year though, moved to fucking edinburgh for uni
Is that in London? I don't understand why they need two, the one that isn't on TCR barely gets any customers but is great for cheap PS2 games.
CEX is pretty based, they were selling TLOU Ellie edition for £35 whilst it was selling on ebay for £90, made a tidy profit off it
>But only because i fucking hate the english
You'll have even more reason to hate them once Salmond tells you how he's going to deal with the Royal Bank of Scotland and the Bank of Scotland being completely owned by the English.
I've always wondered what the legallity is for this shit on the stores side. They obviously know the goods are stolen, it's pretty fucking clear just by looking a whoever is selling and their torn up adidas trackie
>Theres a reason the entire world hates you guys on the same level as they hate america
Because it's easier to name places in the world the British didn't invade and exploit than did?
Man I can't wait until we rebuild Hadrian's wall to keep you fuckers out
The legality is innocent until proven guilty, or "buy the game and if security/police come in and say it was stolen then give them the details of the guy who traded it in."
If it's a serial numbered item then CeX check it against a national database of lost and stolen items. Obviously if it flags they don't take it.
I had a similar thing happen when I went to buy the MGS HD Collection. The guy working the register was a total bro, we had a 5-10 minute chat about The Phantom Pain before it was officially announced as MGSV.
Yeah but see the thing is

How the fuck did you get fired from CEX? I used to work there during university and turned up drunk after Carnage, nothing was done about it. I'd constantly hit on cute customers, turn up late and drunk and I was never fired.
The blue haired girl started talking to me all excitedly about GTA5 when I was looking at a used RDD (which I bought and hated) and I had to pretend I gave two shits about a GTA game in 2013 (this was just before it came out) to not be rude.
Vas is das man
I got fired because they didn't need me. I was part time while they hired on a bunch of university graduates who had all the time in the world to work
Kinda blame myself though. This was like 2 years ago and I was really self-concious and beta at the time. If I worked in there with the personality I have now I probably would have kept it.
No I mean, you run instead of walking by default. Shift makes you go slower.

Fuck Game, seriously. A company owned by Wallmart has better customer service for games than a a dedicated Gaming store.
It was more let go than fired I guess. I was too shy for my bants to be up to scratch to keep myself in there
They just let me go
I meant to try and say like I might play with it before I give it to my brother. But without sounding like a weirdo
It was one of those "I didnt think the sentence through properly" moments. But everyone got it so no worries
Literal only question I got was "How is your banter"
My banter wasnt up to scratch I was too shy. Hence I got let go
Who gives a fuck about Gamestation
It was game with a different coat of paint and stupider people behind the register
Not really anymore. I remember a few years ago I traded about 30 or 40 games into Game to see how much I could get. It totaled around £15. It wasn't even enough to buy a lot of the preowned stuff they had at the time. So fuck Game
you used to get a good price for trade-ins but now it's shit, the best way to go about it is to put them up on ebay and even then you don't make that much because of their fees
yeah i'm the guy who got the 'pony question' application sheet, it seemed like my local CeX had made it themselves, because there was a formal application sheet and one that looked like it was made on Word with some more store specific and 'banter' related questions on it.

I'm with you there, I pre-ordered a game and couldn't collect it due to the weather last winter. The fucks sold it even though they were closed most of the time.
That and the fact that they bungled up my pre-order of DA2 (blessing in disguise) has left me only popping in there to chat and see what d are on Amazon now, usually get the game the day before release
Nah, home town. I graduated last year, and I'm back in with the parents while I'm slaving as a Lab Technician for a school in Hoddesdon and trying to save up the cash to do a Master's degree.
Then I can finally escape.

seriously how the fuck does this even happen?
"hey this game is great!"
"yeah it is. can i have your number?"
Game was always shit. The staff always knew fuck all about games outside of the the latest AAASSSSSS title.
Gamestation was always better. That is until Game bought them out and rebranded them all as Game. A friend of mind worked in Gamestation and his store did twice the business the local Game story was doing. Yet they rebranded it to Game and shut the other one down rather than keep the successful store the way it is. Fucking idiots.

Everyone knows Gamestation was better. Sure it was grimy and there was generally more sweat and acne about, but it had SOUL.
GAME were scared of their growing success so bought them out and dragged them down with them.
Now, after the company went into administration, Gamestation perished and the cancer that is GAME somehow remains.
I have been buying shit from GForce for 14 years now. The guy that owns it drinks in my local. It veers from excellence to outright cuntery depending on how busy it is or if the guys behind the counter are in a mood or not.
Street-date breaking is always welcome though
I walked into game about a month ago in my local shopping centre just because it had been closed down for a while and I wanted to see what had changed. No one else in the fucking shop except the staff. It was 2 good looking girls and a guy who were all talking away. As soon as I walked in they al turned to face me a nd gave me one of the dirtiest looks I've ever gotten; as if I'd just grabbed one their tits or something. Continue walking around the shop for about 5 minutes and eventually one of the girls walks over to me and asks me do I need help with anything, say "no I'm fine, thanks". The girl walks away and back to the tills before muttering fuck sake under her breath.
Seriously why the fuck do they employ people who are like that?
>Go to CEX at 4.10pm

I suppose they saved me £2? The staff in the Sunderland store are lazy fucking cunts, they always shut well before they're supposed to and put the shutters down and over the door to stop people going in around 20 minutes before they close. Wankers. Also there's this young lad there that usually serves me, he's quiet as fuck. Makes no eye contact when serving, clearly not great with people. Everytime I've been in he's been doing all the work while the other fucking monkeys laugh and joke around

See, you're going about it all wrong again. She can tell that you don't have a true passion for history and you're just trying to get it out of way so you can get her number.
The discussion should be so intense that the idea of not continuing it would be unthinkable and that is why she gives you her number.
I had a similar situation actually
Went into a local paki shop because i was going for a night out and wanted some buckie, and only paki shops sell buckie now. I was 17 at the time, looked about 14. Didn't get ID'd, was in and out with a 70 of buckie in 2 mins.

You realise Gamestation was owned by the same company just for the sake of giving people a false sense of competition between the two, right
WiiU and 3DS aisles are tiny everywhere you go simply because they don't sell as much
Vines and live internet shows, follow his facebook and he announces when his webcam sessions are
HE started on the internet and hes back there
He was also on Chucki Dreggs and is a gamer himself
For a few years, yes, but shit man they didn't buy it until I was in college.
I grew up buying my games from Gamestation. Even through the start of last gen they still had dedicated retro cabinets with games all the way back to the NES for sale. I miss those.
I really can't decide if I like that or not. On the one hand, it's no Consolevania, but on the other it's a lot better than any other games show around.

>mfw my room-mate who studies in the UK for free is voting yes because "it would be fun"
>mfw scotland gets independence and he's stuck with a shitty third degree from a shitty uni
My Mum's from Glasgow and my Dad's from Aberdeen. I just live in England. I've never had a problem understanding Scottish accents or anything, I guess I've just never really tried to get into Limmy.
>tfw burnistoun and gary tank commander are both shit but got more air time than limmy
Man, i'm so bummed we wont ever get more of that. Shame they aren't friends anymore, did we ever find out what happened? I guess if the still game guys got back together though, consolevania could return
The denial is strong in this one. Just vote yes with me and get the fuck out of my kingdom.
>Friend is voting yes because "society is currently broken".
>Because westminster are demons.
If it ain't broke don't fix it. We don't get as much as england does because; whodathunk, they have a larger population. London has more people in it than scotland as a whole.
Here's a random example: He defended Bioshock Infinite, and when people asked him to back up his opinions he said "you can't understand it if you aren't a parent".
He's also SJW as fuck and just a prick. He has become the person he ripped the piss out of in Consolevania.
>government owned news site
>numbers all have sources
Numbers don't lie mate. We're fine without you, you're not fine without us. Please vote yes so that I can laugh when you all realise how badly you fucked up.
>Go to Game
>want to buy Mario Kart
That game is nearly 3 years old and it's still full price
I know right, posting numbers that show that the UK will be fine without Scotland is hella scary.
Wouldn't it being scaremongering if the numbers showed how Scotland's economy would decline? No?
You're an idiot mate and is every person who votes yes. You may hate the English and the Welsh may hate the English and the English may hate the Northern Irish. Together we're the UK and we can fight the EU.
Or vote Yes and enjoy your shitty country, doesn't bother me in the slightest. So what if the GDP goes down a bit, doesn't affect me.
No but the 50+ people whom I know are definitely voting yes, and England is going to be fucked.
Why do you think Cameron is working like fuck to make us stay? If we were a dead weight that cunt would cut the lifeline.
I'm going to vote yes like most of Scotland, wait and see how much damage this does to the UK, then watch as it stops being relevant all together.
It will be a United Kingdom that literally isn't united at all. Every country will be seperated by water.
So much funny shit is going to come of this. Are you aware that Scotland as a country is in the worlds top 20 wealthiest countires? Way above England and the rest of the UK as a whole. What do you think is going to happen?
>people are so anally frustrated at sony that they take any and every opportunity to shittalk playstation.
Why cant I ever mention or talk about sony without people getting this frustrated.
>there are scottish people that actually believe this
people you see on the bus on the way to the job centre and accost about politics with a can of white lightning in your hand are going to agree with you.
Cameron knows his time is up, too many scandals, he needs something to hold on to for his next campaign.
Obviously it's going to be reported primarily by scottish news because its only relevant here. A quick google search obviously gives you other sources should you actually need to see them in your denial. These are unadulterated statistics. Deal with them
>the poorer country bailing the richer country out
What is your logic here?
You are a rich nation because of your oil reserves in the North Sea. Most of these reserves and drilling platforms belong to the UK however so you won't be able to access most of them after your independence.
You also have to factor in the fact that you will no longer have access to the NHS at all and will also need to shoulder the debt of the Bank of Scotland. Not to mention you'll need to re-apply to join the EU
I don't think 5 million people can do that.
>who is the best pony
>anything done by the guardian
They posted a fucking article today saying thomas the tank engine was racist.
The comments bit is completely separate from the actual news, to the point where being a real journalist for them must be maddening as your writing is put on the same level as those fucknuggets.
The football, UK news, world news, economic news, whatever, is all fine. The comment section is soul-destroyingly terrible.
The comments on that article are tearing her a new one especially over this goldmine of a comment.
> I'd like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke – and they are all pumping out smoke – it's not hard to make the leap into the race territory.
>mfw Scotland have to get Chinese investment to build infratstructure to get their oil
>mfw the Chinese take part of the oil in return
>mfw Scotland are basically Nigeria
Not that guy, but stop giving a shit about what other people think about you, so long as you're hygienic, can speak clearly and work a register, no one actually gives a fuck about you.
Keep being happy with a lot of money which could be used for taxpayers being wasted on a useless gimmick family who wasnt voted for in any way. They're smiling because they have your money and you retards worship them like peasants.
>Type in "New Game" on google to post their new branch logo here
>Find the headline "Kim Kardashian’s Genius New Game Is Basically Dante’s Inferno" in the first reults
I hate this fucking world so much.
>David Cameron says Scotland can't leave because they wouldn't get into EU and thats a big deal
>Cameron decides he wants a vote to see if we should all leave the EU
If this isnt scare mongering then nothing is. The guy is fucking see through. Fake threats every week its became a joke
You'll have period of growth and prosperity followed by a collapse and then a bailout. It's the standard model for sort of small, first world nation that Scotland is about to become.
Perhaps it's a better option than being a base of operations for the markets though, I dunno. Probably works out about the same for the average person.
Does GAME hate Nintendo as much as Gamestop here hates Nintendo in the states?
>"Kim Kardashian’s Genius New Game Is Basically Dante’s Inferno"
>mfw Independent Scotland collapses and they come crawling back to Westminster
Given the climate of this thread i'd call you an uneducated Scot, but I can't be sure.
They are paid/ recieve $35million a year.
The revenue they bring into the country, by attracting foreigners is around $400million, they don't get that 400 million, we're better off as a nation by $365million every year we have them.
I'm smiling because it means we don't have the a clusterfuck political system that has an elected president.
Fuck anyone who thinks having a president is a good idea. Especially when they say it would make politics MORE effective.
>James is mortified that he has to travel while pink and proceeds to hide from all the other trains along the way. When he's caught, the other trains – including Thomas – viciously laugh and mock him.
I have never laughed at news so much in my life
the one condition on them returning to the UK
is that for the first 3 days all tvs and radios in scotland will broadcast nothing but the royal family taking it in turns to butt fuck an effigy of William wallace
I used to work in a GameStation and every time a parent asked if COD was ok for their kid to play I'd say no then the kid would give me the evil eye as they walked out the shop.
My best moment was stopping some chavs from buying Mortal Kombat and convincing them to get Marvel Vs Capcom 3 instead
>Live in Murica in
>Only places to go for games are Gamestop and the typical chain stores like Walmart and Target
>The only two dedicated video game stores near are in the next city
>They're run by resellers who charge retardedly high prices for their games
CEX seems like an awesome place and I wish we had places like that here. I envy you Brits.
