Got a copy reserved in Game in the Buchanan Galleries today. Doesn’t guarantee that I’ll get it there on Friday, but there are many other places getting stock. What is it about these video games shops where everyone is incredibly unhelpful? Lanky, pimply 16-year-olds in their newly-bought-by-mum charcoal grey shirts and purple ties, trained to swipe your Switch card and stare blankly when asked for some actual assistance.

At least it’s not one of those god-awful high-street electrical goods stores like Comet or Dixons. They practically hold you at gunpoint to buy a 3-year warranty on a gadget that costs less than a Chinese takeaway for two, and they haven’t heard of on-site service. Balls to the lot of them.
