Damn you, quantitative easing and inflated money supply! Import gaming was expensive enough before!

by wfgodbold

Damn you for increasing the number of dollars in circulation (and thereby decreasing their individual value) and making the dollar worth less versus other currencies!

Hey, we all have to relate to current events in our own way; import gaming is mine.

And be damned once more for making the Legend of Heroes: Trails of Blue Perfect  Reserve Limited Edition’s ¥9240 price tag (shipping not included (though Falcom does accept international orders via email or fax)!) even more unattainable (at current rates, that’s $110.56; three years ago, it would have been $91.84; nine years ago, it would have been $70.53).

Unlike their other limited editions, Trails of Blue is going to be strictly limited; it releases at the end of September, but they are cutting preorders off at the end of May, and the preorder bonuses will only be produced in sufficient quantities to meet their orders.

It’s tempting, but I must resist!

All the import games in the world won’t be worth the discs they’re etched on once the global economy crashes and you have to strap a colander to your face and head out into the wasteland!
