I am fucking LIVID right now...
GameStop has been dicking me around for a month now considering my Deluxe copy of Resident Evil Village, and a few minutes ago I just got this email from them.
"There was a miscommunication between the website and the supply inventory. In other words, we are out of stock of the item you requested. You need to wait for availability to re-process your order, or I can cancel it if you want a refund."
Like are you fucking kidding me!?
After getting dicked around for a fucking month, they pull this shit.

It's tough to find a retailer that doesn't dick you around these days. I've had bad luck with Amazon and Best Buy in particular... never even bothered with Gamestop because I figured they'd be the worst offender. So much for the days of pre-orders guaranteeing copies. 😑
I've started just ordering on the day of release from the closest store that actually has a copy available. It's the only way to make sure I get new games on release day.
Shockingly the best retailer when it comes to inventory accuracy and control is... Menards. Seriously. Check their app/website for an item and see it's count and then go into the store and buy it and within a couple minutes the app/website updates with the new count. How are they just about the only retailer to get their shit figured out?
I'm hoping the new GameStop CEO and Chairman can get their logistics figured out since the Chairman wants to be able to compete with Amazon. And he founded Chewy.com so he's got some experience with operating a retail website.
They've got a long way to go and a lot to overcome, clearly.
