  1. I live dead center in California. Those CA events are all 4 hours away from me. Only the cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco get in on any of the fun. They don’t care about anyone in the central valley.
    I don’t have the luxury to spend on gas, when I’m far too busy paying off my tuition. Bayonetta 2 was the breaks for me. I cant spend any more money.


  2. It’s always either my state, or city that gets overlooked with any sort of special events like this. Any time a special promotion or event happens, I can guarantee it won’t be where I live.
