My boyfriend has been playing Scott Pilgrim vs the World (XBox version, if it makes a difference).
He finally saved up enough cash just now to pay off Scott's Late Fees at the video store. He paid the fees, bought a few things from the new listing and exited the shop. He then re-entered and the fees were back in place.
Is there any way to save having paid the $500, so when you come back you can take advantage of the cheap prices? Or is it supposed to be a "buy as much as you can carry because you can't come back" deal? Or is his game simply glitching in the most frustrating way possible?
