No MotorStorm Today
Today in Ottawa it must be one of the coldest days of the winter. The temperature this morning was -24C (-11F) and now at lunch it was -18C (-4F). But my PS3-owning coworker and I decided to brave the cold to get MotorStorm. WalMart didn’t have it. A guy there (also looking for MotorStorm) said that FutureShop didn’t have it (which is in sync with their website). We walked (which was a mistake) over to EBGames, but they didn’t have it either. The icy wind nearly ripped our facial skin off. Then my car wouldn’t start. (Something to do with the anti-theft system.) The dealership said I’d have to have it towed, but I decided to wait 15 minutes and try again. That did the trick.
So I froze my butt off and got stranded in a WalMart parking lot to get a copy of MotorStorm that wasn’t even available yet. That really sucks. When there’s a release date, companies should honour it! This isn’t the first release date problem I’ve had either, and this is really starting to tick me off.
Ah well, at least I’m enjoying a nice roast beef sandwich…
