Why does Canada get F***ED!?!?

Postby hainer36 » Wed Dec 19, 2007 9:11 am

We got screwed on UT2007 (3 days after the US), nothing big but I wanted it.
We get screwed on pricing for everything, finally it is changing, but too slowly
We got screwed on Rock Band. I called around today to see who's getting it in tomorrow...yes almost a MONTH after you Americans can get your hands on it...and to my disbelief I was told it got pushed back. Kept calling around, and finally got another EB store that told me the same as Best Buy. I checked my works orders and nothing showed up as it was coming in, I just assumed that it wasnt on the orders I saw. Nope.
We get screwed on many more games. And sometimes even movies...I dont understand that one.

WHAT THE F**K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I swear I'm going to sue MTV, Harmonix, Wavegroup, The Canadian Language Equality Board, and anyone that owns or has played, or has even SEEN Rock Band. You're all dead to me if you have it and haven't given it to me

RAWR!!!!!!!!!!

So that free health care is working! They have brainwashed you into thinking your well enough not to go to the hospital. :mrgreen:

Now, if they can only do that for the games you want to play, you wouldn't need this thread to gripe. :rolleyes: LOL
