    GameStop did NOT sell “reserved copies”. They were selling it to everyone. The Herald Square GameStop in NYC had a BARKER telling all passerby, “We’re selling Modern Warfare 2 NOW! Come in and buy it!” like one of those peep show barkers.

    Also, it wasn’t because of Best Buy. It was because of “mom and pop” sellers (non-chain stores) were breaking the street day days earlier than GameStop.

    One more comment: I played the original Marble Madness in the arcade, and it… was…. HARD. I never got past the second level, with those stupid air vents that pushed your marble around.

    There was in the first level a shortcut with extremely thin paths and steep curves. Tried it once, couldn’t do it.

    You also never mention the acid pools, the way a little broom would come and sweep away your shattered ball when you fell too high, the oscillator your ball rode, and so forth.

    Still and all, it’s the best game I don’t like playing.
