    I wonder how much stolen material they handle per year

    @askew Most of it?

    Edit: And leaving aside stolen goods for a moment, I did enjoy Switch launch-day, when I saw their staff carrying two Switches each out of the local Game and back to their own store (putting their staff badges back on as they went back inside).

    Great to see the EG forum snobbery is alive and well.

    My local one is a good spot, one of the busiest shops in the town center, the staff are all sound, most of their customers are fine too and I use it myself (both for selling and buying). It's the only place in at least a 100km radius where you can buy PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360, PSP, Vita, DS, 3DS, Wii and Wii U games, accessories and consoles (not to mention the random bits of 90s stuff they occasionally get). If you're inclined towards any sort of retro action, being able to inspect the games and consoles before you buy is a real boon.

    I think the only smell ye're getting is the one that inevitably happens when your holier-than-thou heads are jammed up your arses.
    Wind your neck in a bit huh...

    Who were you before you were banned btw?

    His transformation from most miserable man alive to the most angry and hateful man alive has not been a pretty one.

    I wonder how Fuzzy would react if CEX was staffed exclusively by Travellers?

    At some point, every game shop I've ever visited has had a bad odour. It feels horrible to say this, but it's not uncommon with video game fans. Especially younger males. I've had to evacuate a store on a number of occasions because somebody is wearing an incredibly thick odour that you can pretty much taste. The kind that comes from being unwashed for weeks at a time. They're oblivious, themselves, but it's strong enough that everyone else in the building suffers.

    The customer base is certainly made up of a high percentage of them fencing their latest "acquisitions".

    If you see an asshole in the morning, you saw an asshole. If you see assholes all day, you are the asshole

    Best thing Iíve seen is at a board game expo where they had a freshen up stall with deodorant etc. Is it that difficult to wash everyday?

    My other favourite hobby outlet, Games Workshop, has suffered similarly, but lots of criticism and a corporate approach to selling (actually beneficial in this case) which dictates if shops don't ming, sales go up, has resulted in change for the better.

    CEX do have it doubly tough, a lot of their stock has cardboard and paper packaging and has probably been in a box in a cupboard near / with smelly trainers in it for some considerable time, so there will be a bit of musty puther before they even open the door.

    All the more reason to address it though.

    So are we all in agreement that Fuzzy has questionable body odour?

    That's just the base, the undertone, like the bottom layer of a really unpleasant cheesecake.
    The zesty bits all sit on top.

    Yeah I'm the aggressive one because I'm not one of the Untouchable Forumites that can't say what I want.
    No, you safe the aggressive one because of this-

    Fuzzy likes to 'JUST SAY HOW IT IS'.
