I don't want to sound like an advertisment, but I do love this game in all it's snowy goodness.

Dixon's Handling of Games Makes me Cry



I've been wanting to tell someone this for a few days now, so I thought it would be best to share with everyone instead.

I went into my local Dixons XL the other day, something to do during the lunch break. Saw a sign 2 games for £30, pretty decent games too for 360, PS3, DS, PSP and PS2. So being me I start browsing through the selection of 360 games and end up picking up a copy of Lost Planet with Colonies and Ninja Gaiden 2.

Pretty good deal so far, so I go for a wonder around the shop, then I get to the check-out, nice and simple, have my games and wallet ready. The cashier goes to get this carrier bag out rapped in a neat cylinder shape, I wasn't paying attention here until the horror struck me, she started flicking through a pile of discs with no protection on them as if they where a stack of playing cards, lifting discs and sliding them down the side, the read surface of the discs getting scraped along the corner of the pile of discs. I stood there shocked for what seemed like an eternity of torture, THANK GOD she couldn't find the discs for the games I picked up, I said straight away "Oh it doesn't matter, I wasn't sure I wanted them anyway" and quickly left.

Everyone has something that makes them cringe, for me its mishandling of discs (and chewing material... bleh)
I don't know if the games on sale where pre-owned or new or what, but hell I am not going to think about buying a game from there again.

What do you guys think, Am I crazy or do you feel the same?   read
