Superstore does it again!

Ahh, I don't know what I'd do without my local "Atlantic Superstore"!

After my trip to EBGames this last Tuesday I had collected just over $100 of in store credit after selling a good number of games to them (something I'll never do again) and decided today; I'd return to see if perhaps they had some games I was looking for but to my disappointment I leave the place unsatisfied. They didn't have any copies of "Rainbow Six Vegas 2" (PS3), didn't know what "MLB 08 The Show" (PS3) was and claimed "God of War: Chains of Olympus" wasn't released yet with just one remaining game I was looking for; that being "Army of Two" (PS3)... so with a sigh I purchased the only game I had interest in - that they had in stock.

A brief meeting with brother and mother outside and then we take a quick trip down the road to our local Atlantic Superstore; a giant grocery/everything else store which I have gone to again and again for the best video game selection locally. I blow into the video game/electronics section, almost instantly spot a few copies of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 sitting on the shelf so I snap it up and my brother points out God of War sitting not too far from it so I snap that up too. MLB 08 had a place with a price but no cases in it's spot - but I was plenty happy finding the two other games I had been looking for. The also had Army of Two there as well, FYI. But all is not lost, as I get hope, jump on ebay and bam, snag me a copy of MLB08 for $40 (which is great considering new PS3 games around here go for $50-$70). So now I'm sitting happy with a plethora of new games to play. All praises for superstore!!!!

Havn't touched RSV2 as of the writing of this, but played a number of hours in Army of Two with my brother and it's decent. Nothing super spectacular but decent. God of War on the other hand is very very kewl! I know I'm going to have a blast playing that! MLB08 should arrive sometime late next week or early the week after.

Anyways, I've bought these games in a sort of celebration. I have just recently (this week actually) sent just over $2000 to the government to finally finish off my student loan and now I'm sitting, debt free. :D Feels good.


For the heck of it: Games I'm looking forward to and plan on getting this year (in order):

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (PSP) - Late march
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (PS3) - Mid April
Grand Theft Auto 4 (PS3) - Late April
Haze (PS3) - Mid/late May
Metal Gear Solid 4 - (PS3) Mid June
DragonBall Z: Burst Limit (PS3) - June?
Soul Calibur 4 (PS3) - June/July?
Resistance 2 (PS3) - Fall
Killzone 2 (PS3) - Fall
MotorStorm 2 (PS3) - Fall

  7. Whoo hoo, debt free! Congratulations! I'm slowly but surely still paying off my loan, sometimes I wonder if I should just take out more and finish school already. Good work on tracking down all the games you wanted. Usually EB Games has all the new games before any other stores, and games you wouldn't find anywhere else.
