The Death Rattle!
So, Circuit City was unable to find a buyer and is now in the process of liquidating all of it's current stores inventory in the hopes that stock holders can recoup some of the lost revenue. All that is very very horrible, so I decided that while Circuit City was in the throws of it's final gasps of air, I would rape and pillage what I could, as all good gamers should do when a large electronic store goes under. (Notice I am not laughing.)
So, here is what I ended up getting on the last day of sale.
Vanguard:Saga of Heroes - $1.00
Team Fortress 2 - $1.00
Civ. Colonization - $1.00
Unreal Tournament 3 - $1.00
3 x Warhammer online Game card - $1.00 Each = $3.00
My total cost for all of it was just over $7.00. Did I get a good deal? I'm still not completely sure. lol They had a game card for AoC, but I figured, why install that dog for just a 60 days? Even at $1.00 the cost was still too high in my opinion.
The interesting thing is that when I arrived at the store all the computer software was listed as $3.00 each. So I figured, I'd grab a few items, and leave. Then the lady standing next to the rack of software proceeded to get on the intercom and announce that all computer software was 1 dollar. Well, I just couldn't leave until I had picked that rack over like a buzzard on road kill. So I grabbed up all the WAR game cards I could get, since I currently don't have a subscription I figured at least when they fixed all the bugs and added all the free content in the next few months, I can get back in for 180 days for just $3.00 and if it looks promising, I'll re-up after they expire.
I've always wanted to try Vanguard and at $1.00 for 30 days of free play, I figured what the hell. I already own the Orange box, but I figured I would pick up TF2 for my Dad, he likes the occasional shooter, and again, at these prices, why not?
So, if your near a Circuit City, I would hop on down as soon as you can, because you too, can pick up some great deals before they pull the plug.
