  • Calling all Current/Former Best Buy/Circuit City/etc… TV department employees!

  • Nintendo Fusion


    So I’m gonna be that guy who points out typos on retailers’ websites. For your examination, I give you Specimen A: In the Circuit City current weekly ad it erroneously dubbed the Wii the Nintendo “Fusion.” I see what happened here though, the Nintendo Fusion Tour is a Nintendo sponsored music tour featuring some crap pop band called Hawthorne Heights (emo… Read More
