I decided to get a blockbuster game pass so I could catch up on games that I have been missing as of late. I’ve moved away from purchasing games unless I really want to make a committment to playing them long term. Since I haven’t really played too many games long term, I figured this game pass would work out great.
You can basically have 2 games out at a time and you can keep them out as long as you like. I was really excited, $34 is not bad if you check out 5 or more games in a month.
So I checked out Scarface for the Xbox and the game crashed constantly. I decided to check out the disc and I was amazed at how many scratches were on the disc. I take very good care of my games, so I am used to looking at a pristine disc.
So I took it back and figured I’d try another disc. The dude showed me another one with less scratches, but still quite a bit. I figured it was worth a try, and I began to realize at this point that ALL of these games were probably going to be in this kind of shape. I also checked out another game – Madden 2007 for the PS2. Sure enough the same thing happened, I couldn’t play for too long before the Scarface game would crash. Same thing with Madden 2007. I have a slim PS2 in very good condition and I’m really not used to any games I have crashing.
I brought the disc back to blockbuster and let them know that I had now checked out 3 games and none worked. I told them that I was beginning to wonder if it was worth the $34 if I’ve not even been able to play a game to this point. The manager asked me if my PS2 was in good condition which seemed ridiculous since these discs looked like they’d be scoured with a brillo pad or something. So I asked to cancel my gamepass and she agreed, and I had thought that she agreed to refund the $34. But when I got home I realized that it didn’t show a credit on my receipt. So, I’ll be heading back there tonight to get that refund or fight. I am preparing for the worst, which is them refusing to refund my money. To this point, I’ve not gotten anything of worth. I’ve actually bought aggravation, I wasn’t aware that they were selling me that.
