My brother asked me to pick up a game for him on the way home from work, so I stopped in at the local Best Buy. While browsing through the thoroughly depressing Nintendo section, I stumbled upon this little gem. You'd better get on this action before it's too late!
You know, there's more to this thread than just image spam. There's two points here.
- One, it bums me out that the Nintendo section is filled with nothing but garbage. You'll find the newest Zelda and Pokemon game, but then it's nothing but licence games and shovel-ware. There was no way in Hell I was going to find either Zero Escape game there. Kids love the DS (which is still selling strongly), and it's slightly upsetting that they unless they're savvy enough to shop online, they probably never have access to games like Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (just as an example.)
- Two, I'm only just now noticing what they've been talking about on the Tested podcast for years. My local Best Buy is looking like a wasteland, it's impossible to get a hold of them by phone to say "Yo, do you have any copies of Twisted Metal in stock?" There's constantly more people in line at the returns counter than the checkout counter, and they just seem really desperate to get me to look at the TVs. Best Buy's not doing well, is it, guys? Though I suppose I'm totally OK with using Amazon & Steam exclusively from here on out.
Oh, on the bright side, I bet the Harlem Globetrotters have probably dribbled a basketball on the Great Wall of China at some point...
