Really, Best Buy? THIS Was Necessary?

So, I got a package from Best Buy today and I was shocked to see a rather large box waiting for me on my doorstep, especially since I knew what was in it wasn’t anywhere near big enough to justify it. So I got to thinking, was this big cardboard box and all the plastic filler really necessary? See what I got after the break.

Yeah, that’s it. A copy of Metroid: Other M for the Nintendo Wii which I ordered for $5 plus free shipping. Makes the big box and copious amount of plastic padding (which is deliciously ironically named EarthAware) seem rather unnecessary and wasteful, doesn’t it? I mean, would a standard bubble mailer have been too hard? Now I have to worry about recycling this extra crap…great.

Nothing more to report, just thought this was rather silly. But, before I depart, have another shot of my newly purchased game. I guess I can write something on it soon, after I give it a whirl (probably some time this weekend). Oh yeah, and I have a new site I’m working on with a few internet buddies. Check it out over here at

About Justin McBride

My name is Justin McBride and I’m a guy who enjoys writing, playing games and writing about playing games. Sound lame enough yet? Well, I have other interests as well such as hanging out with friends, watching TV, going to the movies from time to time, surfing the internet, listen to good music, drive at speeds I shouldn’t be driving at and so on. The problem is, that’s all stuff everyone likes to do, so why write about it? Oh wait, seems I just did. Oops.
