Another Black Friday Adventure
I previously wrote about the chaos that is Black Friday when it comes to games deals. Instead of the usual fight for games at my local Walmart where once the wrapping is cut, it's a free for all, I saw something completely different.

I was visiting family in North Tucson this holiday so I figured I would have to see what the adventure was like in "blue hair country". My initial assumption was that I would have free reign on every game I wanted. After all, we are not only talking about Tucson, but a retirement community heavy area. I arrived at Walmart around an hour before the sale began, assuming that I would be one of the first and only people there. Boy was I wrong...

There was a line wrapping around 2 aisles to get to the games. Not only that, but instead of the massive group of people surrounding the wrapped cases, the store had the line setup so that they could control how many people could get to the games at one time. Certainly not as interesting as the people pushing others out of the way or diving for a game that I have seen in past years, however much safer and I suppose more fair for those that play fair.

I would guess that there was around 75 to 100 people ahead of me in line. Considering that some of theses people were in line for PS3 games, WII games, or movies, I felt like I may be able to snag a game or two that I didn't already have. My biggest concern was that there would be someone ahead of me that was clearing the shelves for themselves so that they could make some cash reselling the games on eBay.

Once I was allowed to enter, I found every single title still available except for Black Ops 2. I probably spent more than I should have, but how do you pass up a deal?

My other gaming stop was later that night at the GameStop next door to Walmart. I don't usually hit GameStop on Black Friday because their deals never really excite me, however this year was different. A couple of must haves had me waiting outside the store an hour before their midnight opening. Thank God I was not at home in Colorado for this one when it came to the temperature outside. I have to say that I met some of the most interesting gamers while waiting in line.

I think all of us gamers have at least a little "gamer geek" in us, however what I saw was pretty humorous. The social skills that some gamers have (or lack) is pretty amazing.

This really is a great game, I think I liked it more than Asylum. It’s just those damn challenges that really dragged down the whole experience.
