The Bigger They Are...

The more sales they hold! It was announced today that major electronics retailer Circuit City is closing the doors on every US store. That's 500 some-odd locations shutting down. The good part? Liquidation! Starting tomorrow (Saturday the 17th) Circuit City stores across the nation will start liquidating their stock. This could mean good sales, but it may not. I don't really see them putting 50% discounts on the good stuff just yet. But I shall check it out nonetheless. I would advise all video game and DVD fans to check it out just in case.

I can't say that I'm totally broken up by this news, but I have received many a great deal at Circuit City. Just a couple of weeks ago I got Mortal Kombat DS for like $10 new. That's awesome. And there have been lots of other great deals. Then again, there have been times when I went there and waited in line for 20 minutes for 1 stupid item. So bittersweet news it is.

I guess this shows that even the biggest of businesses are vulnerable to this economic instability. But we also don't know how stable they were to begin with. We will probably never know. In any case, they are leaving, so head out there and grab some deals while you can!

While I'm here, we may as well have us a Flash Game Friday! That's right! Time for me to introduce to you another great way to waste time and have some fun when you don't have a Wii or DS on hand.

Ok, so technically this wasn't made with flash, but it doesn't matter, cause it's Friday and it's a game. So, here ya go!

The premise? Make something out of dirt, or water or oil, or something else. Then start it on fire, or grow some trees, or burn something, or... burn something else. Fun!

Yeah, I didn't really know what to think when I heard that they were going under. But like you said, great deals for us! Yahoo! More games that I won't play for years!

That's pretty crazy. I feel sad for the people who've worked there. I would be pretty scared if I was working there. I am excited about the sales though! Hehe, I can start on your birthday presents early ;) Lol, maybe. Hehe, that game you posted is fun :D I love you Ben! You're the best!
