    So, I'm in my local Game shop talking to the owner. getting more of the big gray brick Gameboys to work on. We start talking about JRPGs as one in a video game store does from time to time. I being up the that I really liked the demo for Stella Glow, and that I thought the game looked fun. The voice acting was better than a lot out there.

    So he hands me a copy..

    What exactly is the message here? Shop in mom and pop stores because you'll be able to get the owners to break their contracts with distributors and sell games under the table?

    Oh, dear Agent... I envy you, and I hope it somehow leaks into the internets.
    Also, I usually preorder games in my local GameStop and go there one week before release, usually they quietly give me the game before time.

    Yes, it usually happens, and in chain stores like GameStop.

    How about be nice to people, support your local businesses, and buy games if you really like them instead of pirating them?

    Stella glow has some scores by Yasunori Mitsuda, right?
    What do you think about the music?
    I am longing for something from Mitsuda.

    The OP means that when you shop local, always at the same place, you could get lucky a get stuff that will make people jealous like yourself.
