Are you a socially-anxious, overly-neurotic, deeply self-critical individual? If you are, you occasionally run into potentially embarrassing situations that you overthink even though they're likely completely irrelevant and you have no reason to be embarrassed. One of these situations might be buying a videogame with a weird cover. Like, oh I dunno, Bravely Default.
The game looked great (and it IS great) - but the problem is, I really, REALLY didn't want to go to an employee at Best Buy or GameStop and buy a game that featured some kind of creepy "sexy teenage butterfly." This is not a "cool thing" for a grown adult to be buying in a public setting. However, I wanted a physical copy AND I wanted it immediately, so that took downloading and Amazon off the table.
Luckily, this gave me an excuse to come up with different methods for getting the game, embarrassment-free!
