Adventures in Game Buying

Judge Hades

Recommended Posts

Ah, the art of game buying and making a purchase that you will want to have a home in your library can be a trying ordeal. <_< Sometime, not so. :thumbsup: I went to the mall looking for a game that could tie me over till the release of Neverwinter Nights 2. :ph34r: I have grown tired of Oblivion, and well playing Neverwinter Nights 1. :ermm: I am sick and tired of the Infinity Engine games, which I never thought I would ever say. :'( The Fallouts have lost their charm after playing them up to the triple digits. :o


It was time to buy a new game. o:)


So I went to the Gamestop at my local mall. I Looked over the miniscule remains of the PC section and saw Mage Knight: Apocalypse. :huh: The Clix game was interesting enough so I bought it and brought it home. :) Installation went by without a care but six disks is downright ridiculous. :o


Note to Publishers and developers: If you are going to make a game that needs more than 4 discs to install, put it on a bloody DVD. Otherwise you are just being annoying. :*


Anyhoots I load up the game and the autopatcher kicks in. Once pathed the beginning movie sequences start and I get to the game menu. I hit single player game and... CTD. :o Okay, I load it up again and... CTD. :blink: I check to make sure I had the latest drivers, installed one, and... CTD. :( I got fairly annoyed by this. I even look for a game protection fix or a NO CD .exe. :) None available so I packed up the game and went to the bus stop. :(


I went back to the cashier, a lovely woman if I must say, and explained my problem. :'( Well, for some odd reason she must have liked me and said I could return it and get a different game or my money back. :wub: Well, I went over to the miniscule PC section and looked it over and saw a game that a few of my friends enjoyed though it isn't part of a genre I prefer but it was on DVD, in fact it had 2 of them. I have in my possession Call of Duty 1, its expansion, and Call of Duty 2. (w00t)


I think I will be setting the difficulty at the easiest level. :)

:thumbsup::) :) :) :) (w00t) It must have burned your eyes to read it. (w00t) :) :) :) :) :thumbsup:



On the topic at hand:


Shame the game died on you, I was actually thinking of getting that one.


I... think I'll hold off. I really don't like crashy games. :wacko:


Consider yourself lucky though, some places don't do returns. :thumbsup:
