"Dude, and do you remember WCW vs. NWO Revenge and Wrestlemania 2000?"
We gushed talking about two of the best wrestling games we had played . They just have not come close to the fun and playability of those titles. My biggest problem was I no longer had a N64. I didn't have WCW vs. NWO Revenge or Wrestlemania 2000. All I know is that I had to get them and the next day I attempted to do just that.
|Where are you N64?|
|Not the actual store I was in...|
On arrival the gentleman at store number two seemed very nice, talking to me about street fighter and some of the hot topics in games. He pulled out the unit and the game and proceeded to sell them to me saying, and I quote, "This system has new cords and everything so it should work just fine". Now, at no point did I bring up its working order believing that they checked these things. So I walked out and hit the accelerator a little harder so I could once again be transported to my youth.
|"N" as in NOT going to go there anymore|
"Listen, I just don't feel comfortable with a faulty system after paying forty bucks for it."
I then presented him with the receipt. He looked at me like he had gotten a sour grape and said the following...
|Kinda like this face....but dummer|
"I'm sorry but I can't take it back, we are all run independantly so if I took it back we would be losing money."
I couldn't believe it. I gave him my best "sour grape face" and followed up with, "you're kidding right?" and "Nowhere on this reciept does it say that I can't return it to a different Play N Trade." He shook his head and still continued to tell me that I would need to go all the way back to the other store to return the unit. I was pissed, telling him that he may have not lost forty dollars today but lost a lot more in the long run. I left and went back to the other store and quietly returned my purchase. The second store clerk couldn't allow me to return it without giving me the, "Well, did you put the cords in right?" (Insert same dumbfounded Play N Trade confused clerk look.)
"Oh my god...That has to be it, because I don't understand how to put two cords into a machine and one into a wall and my T.V."
The moral of this story is I wasted 3 hours on this whole debocle and don't have a N64 to show for it. I wanted to not feel as if I wasted my time so I wanted to make sure to send this disclaimer out to all of our readers. Be careful with third party retailers, most of all be careful if you go to Play N Trade.
