So, where I work has moved to a new building. It's been happening for the last 2 months, but yesterday the old store closed, and today the new one opened. The issue with all of this is all the new problems this has brought up. First and foremost is that I'm now working until midnight, which just seems wrong, and since I'm in the UK, means I'll miss On The Spot. The second problem is that we now sell Video Games.
Now, before you think "well, that's not so bad Dazz, Games sold where you work must be neat" they're old Xbox and PS2 games. Then the quality of some of them is somewhat questionable. Take for instance the fact we sell Fight Club, and the fact it was cheap enough for me to think "Hmm, that game sounded awful, but since its so cheap, I hafta see just how awful it is!" The flip side to that is, for the same price as Fight Club, I got Psychonautss.
Now, I'm a huge fan of the movie Fight Club, and I've gotten the game out of some morbid curiosity that I can never seem to shake when it comes to things like this. Psychonauts is different. I've never wanted it, never liked the idea of it and never played it. So, you're wondering, why's he gone and got it then. Well that's simple, my ex, (and I DESPISE calling her that, because I still love her with every inch of my heart,) loved it when she rented it, and hated never being able to rent it. So in one of those still instinctive twists I picked it up for her, and then wasnt able to put it down. Dunno why, but when I had the game in my hands, all the wonderful memories of her telling me all about the game and how much she enjoyed it came rushing back, and so I had to have it. More money than sense, and I dont have much of either.
So yeah, if you're reading this Anne, I finally got Psychonauts. Really wish I could tell you about me playing it. I know we both loved listening to one another talking about the games we'd be playing. I still dont know why you left, and I still dont know whats kept you away, we were so good together, and you're impact on my life is so huge, I'll never be able to shake it. Being with you moulded me into the person I am today, and you're amazing taste in games is still influencing me, which is why I'm rather proud to finally own Psychonauts. I just hope I get to tell you how much fun I have with it.
On a side note, and stealing the idea blatantly from Donkeljohn, I think I'm gonna try and start writing more reviews. It's something I've always enjoyed when I've done it, and used to do rather regularly, so I'm gonna try the 1 Review a Week challenge thing.
