I love to complain, if you haven't noticed.
How the hell does Blockbuster (Formerly Blockbuster Video
) stay open?
I visit my local store once a week or so, sometimes for movies and sometimes for games. Generally their movie selection is fine, however now with RedBox out, I can rent four movies from the big red vending machine for the price of one from Blockbuster.
Yes I know I already fail it for not using Netflix/Gamefly.
But what really makes me FULL OF ANGERS is how Blockbuster handles gaming. Not only do they not get 80% of new releases, but when they do, they rent maybe 1-2 copies of their shipment and try to sell the rest.
Every week, they have racks and racks of Shrek III: The Game and Spider-man 3, but don't even carry Shadowrun, The Bigs, not even Oblivion. They actually even SELL Shadowrun, but don't rent it! I'd love to rent Prey or even Dead Rising, but it's never available as they only have one copy of either of them! This isn't just at one shop, this is even at the other two in the city that have game stores built in! Let's not forget the fact that it costs nearly EIGHT BUCKS to rent there as well.
I realize my easy solution here is to go get Gamefly, which is probably what I'll wind up doing, but Blockbuster is so damn convenient on the way home from work, sadly, I can't count how many times I've left empty handed from that disaster.
On the plus side of things, they now have a subscription plan for CANDY. I kid you not. For only 5.99 a month, I can have one sugary item a day!
