Default Re: The Official Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood thread!

Our Wal-Mart's PC section is reasonably sized and since I work there I keep it pretty tidy, but they just never seem to send us PC games on time for some reason.

Some will come in weeks in advance, while others don't show up for days after release... basically ruining our sales of that game and all others since people tend to go elsewhere for new releases.

We've had a Gamestop for around 2 years now and I just went in there for the first time last week. They have a single TINY rack of PC games... they didn't even give them any wall space. And to make it even worse, all of the wall space that could be taken up by PC games is filled with empty Gamestop boxes, just to take up space.

It was pretty much what I expected from a place like that.

I really wish we had a Best Buy or a Fry's.

I reaaaaallly miss the days when I could walk into an Electronics Boutique and see floor to ceiling PC games covering an entire wall... and that wasn't counting the pre-owned games... yeah, they actually sold pre-owned PC games. I remember going to EB 2 days before christmas because I had gotten gifts for everyone and still had some money burning in my pocket, so I bought a big arm load of cheap\clearance PC games for like $50.

Thankfully, Steam and GoGamer let me do that online, but its just not the same.
