At least for us North American Fans, one day left to wait! So just curious, when will you be making that mad dash to your pre-order store of choice? (If you haven't ordered online.) For UK - What are your pre-order pick up plans for the 9th?

My store doesn't have a midnight release (cry) so will have to wait till lunch time tomorrow (3ish) to run out and get mine.... Ugh, avoiding Youtube is gonna be fun. Is such a tease too since they've had them "in stock" for a week now. :Bounce:

Release day shipping from Amazon. I'm working until 5 PM tomorrow, coming home to find the game on my doorstep... at which point I will proceed to to play until sleep calls.

Getting mine about 5pm local time (after work) at Gamestop. Then I probably won't get any sleep since I'm working all week. Look forward to being a zombie fueled by Red Bull. It'll be worth it. :p

The place I work has been getting them in stock for about a week now and since I work in Receiving, I've picked up every copy we've moved in. It's so painful not being able to sneak a copy up front to buy it and not have to wait, but I'm not willing to risk my job for it.

Anyway, on topic, I'll be going to my midnight launch tonight. I plan on sleeping most of today so I can pick it up and come home and start playing it.

I just got my pick up notification from Best Buy, I won't be going to midnight launch though, I value a full nights rest far more and I have tomorrow off anyways. So I'll have my copy around the time all the midnighters burn out and fall asleep.

I live in the current day and age where my games get delivered to my doorstop on the day of release. No need to go out for midnight releases or go to the store to pick up a game.

mmm, curious what would be a could service / site to get games from (future reference)? i would of loved to have ME3 delivered at my home when i get off work, lol.

if they can get to your place on the release day, thats pretty nice.

i will be going to gamestop, probably harassed and pressured into pre-ordering like 5 more games lmao. its funny how whenever i pick up a game they want me to pre-order more, i still have a few i never got around to picking up.

I ordered it from Newegg and it hasn't shipped yet so I probably wont have it tomorrow. It was only $47 though so I'm not to worry about waiting a few extra days to play it.

Gonna get to Gamestop at about 9, get my receipt at around 10, head off for some food, come back at about 11:30. I'll have a decent place in line, so I won't have to wait around through a massive group of people for my game.

Just wish I didn't have to go through a full day of work, or spend so much time waiting around first.

The reason I go to the midnight releases is just so I can wake up and play without having to go to the store first. Besides, I live in a smaller area of Florida, so the lines aren't long and I am usually in and out in like 15-20 minutes. I can just show up at 11:30-11:45 and have no problems.

I don't usually start games like this in the middle of the night. I like to start fresh in the day so that I don't burn out after just a couple hours. However, I WILL be playing SF X Tekken tonight, since that is a bit easier to just 'pick up and play' for a couple hours.

10am EB GAMES but I must tell the truth I feal really bad becuz for some reason I just cant get that hype about it(ME1 is in my top 3 fav game off all time and ME2 was dumb down a bit with less things to do and places to explore but was still a really good game)so I dont know why I feel like that maybe its cuz I'm scared that the setting of ME3(earth invasion)is gonna give us the feeling that we ave to rush trew the game fast cuz we need to save earth and shit... anybody feels like me or could say something to get me more hype?

The store where I've reserved a CE copy will receive their shipment at noon. I'll be there to grab one while they're unpacking the boxes regardless.

Yeah. My guy comes at noon. So I can sleep in, shower, grab something to eat (probably not), and then game for a good 6 hours+. :D

Btw Prime is worthless imo unless you don't preorder a lot of stuff. It gets you free two day on stuff sold by Amazon. Where as RD shipping without prime is $1 and annual membership is like $70? $80? gg

I once gave my UPS guy a box of donuts when he delivered Skyrim at 10AM. Now he always shows up early and gets some breakfast delicacy if its something I really want. He's getting pancakes tomorrow morning.

I live in this same era too. But for games like this, I'd much rather have my game paid off, and in my hand by midnight tonight, than having to wait for "sometime" tomorrow afternoon. I love online shopping, but until they deliver at midnight, I can handle the inconvenience of picking up my game at a brick and mortar.

Cannot wait for this game!! I'm still trying to finish up another new playthrough with a renegade fem-shep. Nearly done ME1, then can dive into ME2. However, I still have my primary save file ready to go!! I love how this game was made by a local company (my home province of Alberta).

He said he is finalizing his order. That means he already has the CE preordered. No luck needed.

I might be posting this late as I'm sure those of you that reside there know this, but I'm in the States and I don't recall hearing about this: http://www.captainstarball.com/news/inflatable-omni-blade-included-eb-games-exclusive-mass-effect-3-edition

http://captainstarball.com/sites/captainstarball.com/files/imagecache/node_story/masseffect3.jpg

If you live in either New Zealand or Australia then you are in luck. EB Games have announced an exclusive edition of Mass Effect 3 which includes an inflatable Omni Blade.
Here's what the Mass Effect 3 Omni Blade Edition includes:
-Collectible METALPAK
-In-game M55 Carbine Rifle
-Inflatable Omni Blade
Not sure what people might do with an inflatable Omni Blade but it will be cool to use at the beach or during pool parties. Maybe make a friend buy one too so you can duel with one another!I'm all the fucking jealous right now. Yes, I'm 23 and I would trade all the CE DLC just for an inflatable (floatie) Omni-blade. @#$%^&!!!

It's shame they didn't have one as a prize at tonight's game of darts. Oh no all I won was a measly 50. :(

That pub is tight I tell ya!

Yeah, but I hate people and in-turn miss out on events such as this. Funny enough though my mom somehow found out about this gathering of nerds and asked me if I wanted to go with her. Nothing like being 23 and flying out to visit your mom just to go to Comic-con :X

I'm trying to rectify the situation by grabbing one of eBay. We'll see how I fair. Shouldn't be spending the money but it's a freaking Omni-blade! Gonna get hit with $250 tomorrow. :/

Unfortunately for Mass Effect, a dart is always going to beat an inflatable omni blade.
