Dog + Dark Souls = *expletive deleted*

I rent most of my games. I'm notoriously easy to bore, so I don't like to buy a game if it isn't going to keep me interested until the end. I had Dark Souls through the door yesterday, popped it to one side while I went through the rest of the mail and then found the scattered remnants of the game strewn throughout the lounge about 30 seconds later. So now I have to pay for a ruined game that I didn't even get a chance to play!

I'm told my fury was terrible to behold.

That's not true. I just sighed, shook my head, glanced at Merlin who was looking at me with the sort of epic guilt-face only a dog can achieve, and then blamed it all on my girlfriend for buying a bloody dog in the first place. Then I apologised to my girlfriend for blaming her, took one last look at the mound of plastic that used to be Dark Souls, swept it all away and played Skyrim for a few hours to calm myself.

I'm thinking if I just buy a preowned copy of the game (with a disc in good condition), ask the rental guys to send me a new case and return envelope (Merlin ate those, too) and then send it all back with a picture of myself looking really innocent, they might just fall for it. Plus, it'll mean I can actually play the game before returning it, which was kind of the whole point to begin with, you Goddamn dog!
