I know you are thinking how can this be and what the heck I am talking about so I will tell you.
A one of my best friends has been playing WoW and had been petitoning me to play with him.
So the other day I had decided I could get WoW and play it and EQ2 and do just fine.
As you all know getting WoW is next to impossible. I searched he net and nobody had any but a single CompUSA near my work listed having some in stock.
I drive out there to find there is no games on the shelf. I track down one of the helpful staff and ask about the game and he says they have none. That the computer says they have some in stock because they have a couple defective ones.
He then volunteers the fact that they have 1 copy in the back that was returned and that it has not been checked back in yet but when it is will be placed on the shelf.
I ask him if I can get it checked in now, since I was there and wanted it. He goes in back and asks the guy in the back if he can get the 1 copy of WoW checked in and comes back out with the copy for me.
To my horror though the game has been open by the guy that returned the game. Needless to say I am thinking the guy installed the game took the key and returned it and even now got over on CompUSA.
I decide to risk it though since what chance to have to play with my friend.
I get home install it and by some miracle the guy that returned the game was actually an honest person and the key was still good.
Just thought I share the story as it is sort of crazy and obvious proof that the gods of gaming smile on me.
