Calling GameStop: A Simulation


We’ve all done it. We’ve called GameStop with a question, listened to the employee’s big speel at the beginning, then been disappointed by their answer. Yet we keep calling. It’s the definition of insanity! In order to point out the absurdity of this cycle, Simeon and Scott have created a simulation of calling GameStop which will be demonstrated for you in this video.

Our Best (Worst) GameStop Memories


GameStop seems to be slowly dying. As the industry becomes more digital and as competitors offer more compelling deals (like Amazon’s pre-order discounts and the late Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked), GameStop just can’t seem to keep up the pace. In a pre-emptive memorial, Simeon and Scott remember some of their favorite worst memories at GameStop.

The Ethics of Console Bundling

I’ll take one NES Classic Edition with a side of GOUGE-ME-FOR-$200 please and thank you!


#569 – GameStop, ThinkGeek, and other retailers are starting to hold their Nintendo inventory hostage and sell it along with a bunch of other junk. If you’re looking for a Switch or even an NES Classic Edition, you may have noticed this questionable business practice… Simeon and Scott are here to look at the issue from all the angles, and determine if stores have a right to do this. And is it in consumers’ best interest? (Go ahead and guess the answer to that one.)

What is the BEST Way to Buy Games?

After you save some serious Benjamins by following this advice, you might just head over to our Patreon page. ;)


#524 –¬†We know how it is! Video games are expensive and cash is tight. That’s why you can’t just buy games from here, there, and everywhere all willy nilly! You gotta go in with a plan, know where you can score the best deal, and save some dough. Don’t buy another game until you watch this full episode!

When We Were Newbs

Please forgive us for our ignorance.


#502 – Sure, we might LOOK like pros, but we were once a couple of newbs just like the general populous. We did things back in the day that make our more mature-gamer-selves cringe. But at least we’re man enough to admit those past shortcomings! Have you ever been a newb? Sure you were. Hopefully, you can relate to some of the funny stories we share in today’s episode of the Two Button Crew show!

What are Your Plans for the Switch Launch?

Waiting for a console launch is kind of like being a fiance√©. It’s a very temporary status, can be enjoyable, but the wait is killer.

Tomorrow night, people will be lining up to take home their shiny new console/portable hybrids! What do you plan on doing for Switch Day? Are you going to have trouble sleeping for pure excitement? How late will you stay up with a pair of Joy-Con in hand? WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS?!

Should I Sell my Wii U to Buy Switch?

It’s nothing personal, Wii U… it’s not you, it’s us.


As we discussed yesterday, with a brand new console coming (expensive in itself), it’s also accompanied by many accessories and other opportunities to spend your hard-earned cash. Well, that money needs to come from somewhere, so what about selling your older games and consoles… say… your Wii U? Will you really be playing it anymore? Does it really have THAT many truly exclusive games? We’ve collected the definitive lists of pros and cons – watch, then make up your mind and proceed with confidence!

GameStop Prank Calls!

Scott does his very best unintentional Obama impression.


We’ve played a few pranks on Nintendo Customer Service before, but today we’re branching out to see if the folks at GameStop can give us help finding some gaming-related products!
