Since posting this morning’s entry, two things happened.
1. When I wrote that the week looks quiet on the new release front, it was because I’d totally forgotten that Child of Light is coming out. Reviews at the larger outlets have been mixed but generally positive. I’m not sure I can pick it up this week, but I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out at some point soon.
2. A nice-sounding dude from the third-party vendor that sold me the fraudulent Vita (once again, their name is Tax Free Distributors) called me to personally apologize for the order, to make sure my refund would be expedited as quickly as possible, and also to offer me $20 in Amazon credit if I would rescind my negative feedback on their storefront page. I am pleased to report that even though I’m short on cash right now, I still possessed enough moral fiber to tell the guy on the phone that a $20 bribe was disgusting and offensive, and that I would do absolutely no such thing. As my negative review has already been pushed off their storefront page, I’m resorting to twitter and this blog, where I can keep it up as long as I want.
