Circuit City is No More

March 9, 2009 -

Gizmodo reports that Circuit City has slipped quietly into that retail good night.

Individual stores of the bankrupt retailer spent their final hours over the weekend selling off their remaining merchandise and then even getting what they could for their empty shelves.

Re: Circuit City is No More

I feel bad for the tens of thousands of people who are now jobless.

I'm royally pi**ed at the executive management of the company who will probably walk away from this with millions and be courted to run some other company into the ground while again walking away with millions.

On the other hand I feel bad for the executives too. Can you imagine not being able to get a new BMW every year? Some of them might even have to sell their summer homes. Oh, the humanity.

I went into my local CC store every weekend. Not once did I see a price I couldn't have gotten lower elsewhere. It still amazes me that people were lining up to buy merchandise they could have gotten cheaper elsewhere.

Re: Circuit City is No More

Every once in a while they had some seriously awesome game sales, $5 each. There's a lot I'll snag for that little. I think the last one we were at a few years ago, I got 23 games.

But in general? Prices weren't worth it, often had stuff above list (so did Comp-USA), staff was unhelpful.

Whelp, good thing that Best Buy was just built near the Circut City, otherwise where would we have to go for our big box electronic store needs? Wait? I think I smell conspiracy! Best Buy has been planning this coup all along!

Re: Circuit City is No More

Ironicly a Best Buy was built in my mall, which was across the street from Circuit City.

CC should have died a long time ago.  The fact they dragged out their death this long was amazing.

Re: Circuit City is No More

I wonder what my old CC manager is doing? Probably sitting behind the building, drinking a quart of Mad Dog, muttering to himself "False advertising is bad. Employee mistreatment is bad. DIVX was a bad idea..."

Re: Circuit City is No More

Well then, as long as they didn't go gentle into that good night, everything's just fine.

Re: Circuit City is No More

Selling your very shelves probably counts as raging.

Matthew Wilson@AE I think the first dragon age did it the best. the person you played was treated differently based class,race, and gender. if the npc are going to act like 2015, you should just set the game in 2015 and add magic and dragons.04/01/2015 - 1:23am
E. Zachary KnightYeah, the PS3. My son paid for the Steampunk Texture Pack and it would not work at all. No matter what I did, it wouldn't allow us to save.03/31/2015 - 10:56pm
Sora-ChanConsole version?03/31/2015 - 10:40pm
E. Zachary KnightSo, Mojang has been selling a broken texture pack for Minecraft since at least Dec. 2014 and it hasn't been fixed yet.03/31/2015 - 10:30pm
Andrew EisenI think TT Games gets away with multiple LEGO games a year because they're all based on different franchises. If there were two or three LEGO Star Wars games every year, I think people would feel the same fatigue as they do with Assassin's Creed.03/31/2015 - 6:40pm
Andrew EisenIn other words, a hero is male because that's the default. A hero is female because of a gender-related reason. So, male heroes are for everyone. Female heroes are for women.03/31/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenHer point is that "When archetypal fantasy heroes in games are overwhelmingly portrayed as men, it reinforces the idea that... women should be able to empathize with male characters but that men needn’t be able to identify with women’s stories."03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenDaniel - She doesn't say that in any of the TvW videos and I doubt she's said elsewhere that all games with male protagonists are male power fantasies. Anyway, you seem to be conflating two different ideas.03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://twitter.com/Yuriofwind/status/583028257890635776 Oh snap!03/31/2015 - 5:14pm
WymorenceFor me it just boils down to the fact that, even at a giant company, when a game comes out annually it just gives it a vibe of being rushed out the door. And god knows Unity sucked some major lemur with all its bugs...03/31/2015 - 4:22pm
PHX CorpI launched my spotify account today, and I kinda went a little overboard with adding music03/31/2015 - 3:59pm
Sora-ChanCon't. Games like AC are a pain to someone like me who likes to play games in order. So when a game gets too many releases too quickly, it puts me off. Only exceptions are games that have no interconnected underlying stories like the FF games.03/31/2015 - 2:53pm
Sora-ChanWikipedia has rarely let me down on matters like this. But yeah... AC needs a break.. like two.. or three... or eight years.03/31/2015 - 2:51pm
ConsterThere's 9 already?! I think I played 1, 2, and the ones inbetween 2 and 3.03/31/2015 - 2:23pm
Sora-ChanCon't There are now Nine... of just the main entries into the series. There are 13 more in the "other games" department.03/31/2015 - 2:15pm
Sora-ChanI tried to get into AC. Was having a decent time with the first one, at which point they had already released three titles. Then a fourth came out... then a fifth... the wall kept growing before I could finish the first.03/31/2015 - 2:14pm
Daniel LewisI think ubisoft should give AC a break before it's milked to death,and i'm a big fan of the games03/31/2015 - 1:15pm
PHX Corphttp://www.polygon.com/2015/3/31/8320017/assassins-creed-chronicles-china-india-russia Assassin's Creed Chronicles is now a trilogy, goes to China, India and Russia03/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Daniel LewisThe only thing said i disagree with is the final quote on Men's experiences are seen to be universal but women are gendered,though doesn't anita say that games with male protagonists are male power fantasies,so in turn both are gendered03/31/2015 - 1:08pm
