I feel like an idiot here. There's this little yellow strip thingy thats running up and down the part of the case where it should be opening. I can't get this sucker to open for the life of me. How do I get this open without destroying everything?
Looking at the copy of Def Jam Vendetta that I picked up at the same time, the yellow thing I'm talking about goes through the right hand side of the case. There was a little yellow tab sticking out from the bottom right of the case, which I tried to use to pull the thing out.
If it isn't part of the DVD case, it may just be something they put on it to keep the disc from being removed. You can probably safely cut off the yellow thing, but you may want to call Blockbuster and ask them what it is.
Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
It sounds to me like Blockbuster forgot to take out the yellow strip that keeps people from opening the case and stealing the game in the store. They use some special gun or pliers to take the dang thing out.
They've done it to me once before, too. Blame minimum wage and high school workers who just don't care.
I'll go obscure (read: Atlus) and reccomend Persona 3, which is part high school simulation and part RPG (and wholly awesome). Kingdom Hearts kind of blows, but your friend would probably like it all the same.
