I picked up a New Galaxy Style Nintendo 3DS XL at Walmart yesterday. The price was rolled back to $179.00 from the original price of $199. I’ve wanted to pick one up for a while now. I wanted one to use while waiting for Uber requests.
The problem is, I don’t have any games for it. I had a physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, but I cannot find it anywhere. It’s just gone. I tried to download the games I paid for through the digital Nintendo Game Store with my old 3DS, but it tells me there’s nothing to download.
I wanted to buy a physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It’s running $19.99 everywhere that sells it.
My first stop was Target. They had the game, but there was nobody in electronics.
Toys R Us
They also had it, but like Target, there was nobody working in electronics. There was a sign saying if anyone needed help, to go to the customer service desk.
They were selling a used copy for $18.99. I tried to buy it, but it was like the register area was at the mouth of a black hole. Time slowed down to a crawl. The employee wearing a beanie was helping someone do something that involved a going to the back of the store multiple times. There were two people in front of me waiting to buy a Funko figure. The other store employee was talking to them, talking about how he got his grandmother into watching The Walking Dead. I guess the figure was from The Walking Dead.
At that point, a woman and a developmentally challenged man came into the store. The developmentally challenged man began making very loud noises. The problem was that I began having a mini-panic attack. The only thing stopping it from becoming a full panic attack was that I left GameStop. I just couldn’t take it anymore.
My last attempt at buying a physical copy of the game was at Best Buy. They had it in individual anti-theft plastic cases. This made buying it very easy. I bought it and went home.
What a hassle. I think I’ll be checking out the Nintendo Game Store in the future. Even if my purchases disappear, it’s easier than going out in the real world.
