Starting tonight, people will die. I'm a man of my word.

Title: Rather annoyed.

So, yesterday, I went to my like Gamestop. Asked them if they had Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, because, you know...the release date was yesterday. They didn't have it, said that it was getting SHIPPED on 10/24/06. The guy told me to come back today, at 11:00, when they typically get this stuff in.

Okay, no big deal.

Came back today, about...11:00ish, right. Lady's there this time, and she tells me to come back at 2:00, because that's when they typically get this stuff in. As opposed to 11:00, which the other guy told me. I guess I shouldn't have trusted him to know; I mean, he only had the words 'Manager' buttoned to his chest...

No big deal. Slightly, perturbed, but I'm living with it.

So I come back at 3:00. Still not there. Not only is it not there, but the lady says it won't be there all day because of 'shipping errors'. So I take my preorder money back and decide to look elsewhere, because, really, Gamestop's offer of the code to get Silver Surfer with a preorder is extremely dumb because

A) The code's already on the internet.
B) That's...that's it, really.

So I go to EB. Not there. I call Wal-Mart and Target. Not there. Slowly but surely do I learn that NOT ONE DAMN STORE IN CHARLOTTE HAS THIS GAME TODAY.

I know there are other things to life than videogames. I understand that these things happen. I know it's really no big deal. But...I've been looking forward to it for so long now...just saddens me.

But I'll cope. I rented Bully, and it's keeping me tided; very good game, that.

...

On an odder note, depsite the fact that I don't find Scrubs to be funny, I find myself oddly compelled to watch it.

I'm getting my copy of the Collector's Edition of Final Fantasy XII next week despite not having my PS2 to play it on until at least Thanksgiving. I'M GONNA READ THE MANUAL EVERY NIGHT UNTIL THEN.

I played God of War. This is definitely not 10/10 quality.

Genj, you are a sad, strange little man... reading the manual until mid November?

...Though, when I loaned out my Drakengard game to a friend, I carried the manual around with me wherever I went in my purse. She had that game for like... two months! I was going into withdrawls!

...I heard they got rid of turn-based battles in FF XII. I didn't want it because of that.

And Scrubs has that effect on people. It's the same thing as watching the puppet sex scene on Team America; you know you should turn away, but oddly enough, you're compelled to watch. Some kind of morbid fascination.
