Adventures in the USA

   0
Ever since the US Dollar has been dropping in value, I've been meaning to cross the border and pick up some games in the states. (And save some money in the process!)

So I head for Gamestop and they actually had all the PSP games I was looking for; Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles and Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness. My local EB games didn't have Dracula X or Disgaea in stock last week, so I was pretty happy to find them!

I also grabbed Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure (PSP) since it got good reviews and was so cheap.

The guy working there was kind enough to give me the Dracula X preorder bonus even though I didn't preorder the game! Apparently nobody even placed any pre-orders for the game at that location, so he was happy to give it away. I don't suspect the assholes at any of my local EB Games would have been so easy going and generous!

EBGames and Gamestop tend to have a (mostly deserved) bad reputation for poor customer service. The two EBGames near me are employed by incompetent half-wits with some serious attitude. Somehow I figured it would be even worse in the states, but I was totally wrong!

The lone sales clerk working at the Burlington Square (Taylor Michigan) Gamestop location was not only VERY friendly, but well informed courteous and totally competent at his job!

After a bit of shopping I went for lunch at an Old Country Buffet. The food wasn't the best, but it was far from terrible. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. Last time I was in the states I ate at Big Boy and the food was nasty! There was a chunk of bone (or tooth?!) in my hamburger! I swore I would never eat in the states again, but I couldn't resist the lure of the Old Country Buffet. I'm pretty sure I'd go back - but not for a while (sooooo full).
