Announced on Thursday

http://www.blockbuster.ca/
25% off all movies
15% off all games
25% off all other shit

If Skyrim or Gears was out I'd totally buy it. This is pretty sad though, I always really liked these stores. I wonder if Music Stores are next.

Wait, no more blockbuster? Wow.. that's sad. I haven't gone there in ages but that's still sad.. i used to love running to that place for new movies or games. Well long as amazon.com still stands im ok. Damn cheap economy! I also miss Funco Land.. before Gamestop bought them out.

some small record stores were in the mall that were all great.. there was even one where you can sell music you didn't want anymore but that shut down. It was all due to some guy who kept bringing in mexican albums.. well actually i knew the guy but the manager at the store said they are shutting down because the guy kept bringing in mexican music.. that no one would even buy.. which is strange since we have plenty of mexicans around. This guy would buy lots of mexican cds listen to them then sell them for cash. When i turned in cds i didn't want i would trade which is what the store is really about.

Renting movies online is going to be the worst. I'd rather just fucking pirate it if I'm going to watch it on my laptop. Of course there is Netflicks, but I'm already paying for cable and Xbox live.

I think I'm going to cancel my $20 movie channels on Dish and replace it with a $20 plan from Netflix including two disks and instant stream.

It's true that they no longer had anything to really offer beyond the joy of walking or driving to a place, meeting people, being friendly, and having a good night.

EXCEPT...other than those "impractical gtfo of my face I'm a modern day man" factors, there is one thing...

Renting games.

Yeah, renting games rocks. Pay $60 for a game or rent it and beat it in like 5 days. If it's a really good game then you can buy it. This way you can find what games you like, and otherwise suck all the entertainment value out of a game straight away. Hugely worth it.
