Seriously, WTF? I thought they were joking at first. They were telling me what new games had come in, and the guy was like "Oh yeah, we got Hamsterz!" and I'm like "Okay, I don't even know what that is?" and then he starts talking about how fun it is and how hamsters are the coolest animals. I thought he was just messing with me at first, so I play along, and say something like "Wow, sounds really awesome. Hamsterz was da bomb in Phantoms, yo"
But this guy just keeps going like this is really some great game that I should own. And then the other guy starts talking about how much fun it is, and how his hamster had knitted him a sweater earlier in the day and stuff. So naturally, I start backing away slowly looking for a chance to make a break for it, when the guy offers to show me the box. So I humor him and look at the box, and make some comment like "Wow, yeah, looks fun" and then he's like "So you want to take it home and try it out?" to which I made some vague, noncommital response like "Uh, well, I don't know, maybe next time" which roughly translates into "It's a cheap looking Nintendogs rip-off made by Ubisoft starring Hamsters, and it's got a "Z" in the title instead of an "S". Hell no, I don't want to buy it."
So did I just miss out on my chance to jump in on the next big DS phenomenon on the ground floor here, or what?
