...Okay, so here's the story:

I was in EB looking at Dreamcast games when I asked the passing assistant if he had Rez in for, obviously, the Dreamcast.
I laughed at the reply of "No sorry, Resident Evil isn't on the Dreamcast." but that's not the point.

This guy approached me with what seemed to be his wife and a very geeky friend. "You can Get that in HMV," he said. I smiled and said cheers as I looked at his jacket. An Xbox jacket.
Then he said, "in Liverpool...." which I found quite funny as he had an Xbox jacket on, but otherwise I would have been forced to smack him in the face.

I asked where he got his cool jacket and I never would have expected the reply.
"I work for Bizarre Creation, and worked on Project Gotham Racing." Now I wanted to smack him in the face.

(If this is you, I don't really. Can I have your jacket or can you please get me one - PM me.)

No, actually he seemed a pretty cool guy. I told him I pre-ordered PGR, and then conversation died. I sooo badly wanted to ask for some free stuff, but I though I'd hassled him enough already.
So off I went, without Rez, without an Xbox jacket. But a smile. :D

Naw man...I pre-ordered my Xbox at Toys R Us so I didn't have to goto Walmart or stand in line. But I got like 90% of my Xbox games at the Hope Mills Walmart.

Also I goto SouthView High School. You should know about that place.
