FABIO: I just got back with a friend who searching for someplace to buy it
FABIO: Best buy was sold out, and EB gave us the preorder shit too

IceCreamJonsey: FUCKING EB.

FABIO: even though they probably had 100 copies out back and 10 people scheduled to pre order

IceCreamJonsey: Exactly. I can't believe they're pulling this shit. Seriously, there's been two games I've wanted since I was 17 -- a new Zork game and a new Doom game. Now I'm getting cockblocked on Doom.
IceCreamJonsey: THEY think I'm going to be all like, "Whoa! I should have pre-ordered! I'll definitely do that next time!" When, in reality, I'll simply never go there again.

FABIO: who the fuck preorders? Software shortages are a FUCKING MYTH

IceCreamJonsey: Especially if someone were to break the street date. I don't want to be tied down to EB.

FABIO: and every time there is one, it's most likely artificially induced by some marketing scame
FABIO: EB and 80's nintendo

IceCreamJonsey: But out here everyone is a pussy and didn't break the street date. Now I'm crawling around on the actual street date and EB's truck of shit is running over me, backing up, beeping their horn three times and running over me again.

FABIO: GET OFF THE STREET! PRE-ORDERED COPIES COMING THROUGH!
FABIO: it's okay to run him over, he's not one of our "priority" customers
FABIO: Actually I think they run anyone over, just as long as they don't leave tire marks on the pre-order slips

IceCreamJonsey: The thing also apparently doesn't run with CloneCD installed. I seriously should have warezed this shit over the weekend. I'd probably get security called on me if I went to get a legitimate copy and was a dick about it, meanwhile piracy is completely victimless!

FABIO: we almost stopped a hot chick outside the store to try and get her to buy a copy (which they definately had out back) for us

IceCreamJonsey: heh
IceCreamJonsey: These poor register jockeys are going to get yelled at if sales exceed pre-order sales.

FABIO: but I think begging a hot chick to buy you a videogame voids the warranty on your penis

IceCreamJonsey: What fucking reality are we living in here, m'man? What the hell is this shit? Why the fuck are we desperately trying to think of ways to LEGITIMATELY PURCHASE this fucking mertware? This is like that episode of the Twilight Zone where everything got all fucked up. I'm expecting Mr Serling to jump out of my storage cabinet and totally start chain smoking with a smirk on his face at how things are going badly for me.

FABIO: I remember that Twilight Zone episode
FABIO: where things were fucked up
