Buy NHL 13 for pocket change? Here’s how to:

It’s that time of year again, the air has a crispiness to it that only means one thing: Fall is around the corner.

9/11 is a date that is etched in our collective memories. We’ve all seen the images, we’ve all heard the theories, and we all share the same hope of ‘never again’.

The date also brings excitement for the North American gamers among us: EA sports releases it’s new NHL game!

When I woke up this morning I was itching to get to Gamestop/EBgames to pick up my pre-ordered copy of NHL 13. I was in for a surprise when I got there! The last few days I had gone through a number of my games and selected those who I would no longer play or had all achievements on and decided to take them in as trade ins.

I received the following credit for my games:

  1. NHL 12 $10.40
  2. Mass Effect 2 $7.80
  3. Dead Island $13.00
  4. Assassin’s Creed II $7.80
  5. Kinect Adventures $0.13 (free game I received when buying the Kinect)
  6. Legendary $5.20
  7. L.A. Noire $9.10

For a total of $53.43.

Apparently because I was trading in my games towards the purchase of NHL 13 I received a 20% trade in bonus! I was shocked and ecstatic! Since I already had put $5 down on a pre-order my final bill became: $2.80 + $3 gameplay warranty for a whopping total of $5.80!

Gather up those old dusty games you no longer play and run to Gamestop to pick up your NHL 13 copy for pocket change!

Go Sens Go!

Theo Fleury: a Survivor, a Role model

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In light of the Penn State scandal I randomly replied to someone’s tweets stating that I could not conceive anypunishment that would be sufficient for a child molester and those who stood by and did nothing. To my surprise I received a reply from Theo Fleury himself asking me to focus on helping survivors of child sexual abuse heal instead. I am a child and youth worker, no not a social worker, the definition of a CYW (also referred to as a Child and Youth Care Worker) can be found here. From the short time I have worked in the field I am dumbfounded at how little support and resources there are for the victims and how much concern is placed around the accused. The current approach to dealing with child sexual abuse is flawed. It’s broken. Kaput. In shambles. It needs fixing. Badly.

I can think of only a handful of people as brave as Theoren “Theo” Fleury. A victim of child sexual abuse while playing junior hockey in the 1980’s Fleury has come forward in a compelling autobiography “Playing With Fire”. Order your copy today

In 2010 he decided to file a complaint against his former junior hockey coach Graham James, James was sentenced to two years in a federal penitentiary. To me and many others two years for child sexual abuse is a travesty and a gross injustice to his victims and any other child/youth who suffered/is suffering through sexual abuse. Listen to Theo Fleury’s victim impact statement.
