Closing Blockbuster
« on: March 09, 2013, 03:05:10 PM »
Our local Blockbuster is closing soon, and they're having a sale, but I'm not celebrating. sadbot;
My mom was kind enough to give me the money to buy Persona 4 Arena from there for $22, but I'm not celebrating. =(

That Blockbuster has been around for as long as I can remember.  Over 20 years.  That's where I got Resident Evil Degeneration, Dead Space: Extraction, and The World Ends With You.  I have so many precious memories of that place.  I used to stop by after work, go there for a visit and browse the games...  I don't want it to go! :(  I want Blockbuster to stay!  No other store has their movie selection!  It will never be the same!

And the anniversary of my cat's death is this Wednesday too. ohintercourse me;

I haven't been inside a Blockbuster in at least four years. Haven't rented an actual movie from there in at least seven or eight.

Netflix is a subscription-based (which can go straight to hell) service that allows people to watch certain movies or shows anytime.

Steam is a digital game download client.

both are superior to any sort of brick and mortar chain in almost every single possible way for all parties, especially if you only watch a movie once or wait until games are discounted

Not if I don't want certain things to take up tons of memory space, or when I want to keep something or rent something!

Well, good thing games on Steam are discounted way before they are anywhere else then.

local one closed years ago. netflix, man
I really hate how I've made more than 12,000 posts here. Thankfully this swaying, moving Chandelure makes it all worth it.

But that's only PC games.  What about the Wii, DS, and 3DS?
