First World Problems

Oh man, I have a doozy of a First World Problem today. See, Pokemon X and Y are due to be released worldwide on 12th October, i.e. tomorrow. In an attempt to get it as early as possible, I ordered the download version of Pokemon X even though I prefer physical cartridges. I thought "It'll probably be available at 11pm on Friday night since Nintendo's European servers are in Germany, and at the worst case it'll be midnight - that beats waiting until I've managed to drag myself out of bed in the morning." Yeah.

And then I woke up today to find out that GAME, the beleaguered British video game chain, had been given permission to start selling it early. And Kingston has gone from three branches of GAME to zero, making my nearest one in central London. And I was way too sick to drag my arse into central London today.

And now it's late enough for me to try downloading Pokemon X, and I can't, because my SD card is too small. The game won't fit even if I delete EVERYTHING. Argh!!
