Here in LV they are keeping the Game Stops open all night for a GTA release party so those who pre ordered it can get it early and have some food. Then every game will take a back seat for a few months while I play it everyday. Anyone looking to try and boost the online achievements when they get it?

Mine will be arriving before 1pm on release day like it always does ^^
And I will be going into a complete different dimension to everyone around me untill i get 100%.. I'll have to warn my friends and parents this time that im not dead and that I am infact locked away in my room and if they wish they can slide some food through the door if I get a moment during a load screen to go and get it :P

I'm going to buy it at Wal-Mart the day it comes out after school. I don't have it pre-ordered or anything but I think I'll still be able to get a copy. A bunch of my friends never pre-ordered Halo 3 but were still able to get it at launch from Wal-Mart. GTA4 will probably be the only game I play until I beat it.

I don't know if there will be a midnight launch here, if there is I'm going at midnight to get mine then taking off The 29th (and maybe the 30th:)) to play. If there is no midnight launch I'm going to do the same thing but pick my copy up that morning.

Im really lucky that I have no classes that day (what a coincidence :woop:). So im going to Gamestop in the morning to get my copy and play all day.

Getting it at midnight, and hoping that I get th 29th off so I can play all day.

04-18-2008, 01:16 PM
Wow, looks like I'm the only person still going to work on the 29th. I'll have to work from 8 to 5 and it's probably going to kill me. I'm not going to bother with the midnight launch either since I would not get any sleep that night.

I'm off that week, so I'll be getting as much playing time in as I can before I have to go back to school for the summer... damn alternating work and academic terms...

04-19-2008, 03:20 PM
I haven't been this excited about a game since when they first announced diablo 2 : LoD lmao
Lets hope it hasn't been over hyped like halo3 was..Doesn't look like it has been over hyped though ^^
It's gunna be one of those games where theres a ceremony when you get it.. wet yourself and spell your name completly wrong in excitement as the postman hands it to you...franticly take the seal off the box with whatever sharp object tends to be around.. pause for a couple of seconds staring at the box... open the box.. admire the insides as if you have just struck gold..then threaten your xbox360 with many violent consiquences if it scratches the disk when put in.. then do a crazy little happy dance as the game boots ^^ ...

Special edition ordered from HMV. 60, rather than 70, 1000 MS points, and I get student discount of 10%. Posted special delivery, should be here release date, I won't expect it before but if it does arrive early, bonus.

I am skipping school and picking it up first thing in the morning on the 29th...I would be picking it up at midnight, but the gay town in which my Gamestop is located in won't let it because of town ordinances. :mad:

I plan on coming down with a sudden illness on the day it comes out. My dad will pick it up for me, come home, and I play for the day

I've ordered my copy on GAME stores website which usually send the game too early and it arrives a day before release, hopefully this will be the case with GTA.:woop:

My plan for April 29th is this...

Wake up at 8 am. Get my mom to call my school to say I'm not coming :). Get ready to go to the mall to go to EB games and pick it up. Go home. Put it in the disk drive. Laugh at all my friends at school.

So when its all said and done should be playing by like 12:30 pm that tuesday. Cant wait.

Wait for UPS to drop it off at my house while I'm at school. Get home, play it till I fall asleep then rinse and repeat.

Does anyone know about Best Buys delivery dates for pre-ordering games?

My school isn't out until 4 on tuesdays, so I'll be waiting for the midnight release on monday night. But I'm still going to school the next day. Why? because I am facilitating a discussion with parents on the effects of media violence on the 30th. I am sacrificing my own GTA 4 time so that those younger than 17 with crazy parents can play as well. As a teen, a gamer, and an investor in take two interactive, I think it's for the best.

I get to pick mine up after work. Might not even get to play it 'til the next day.

Ha I might get my copy of Gears 2 a couple months earlier. My friends uncle works for M$. I got Vampire Rain which blows and Halo 3 early as well. I can't wait. I want GTA4 though so baddd.

I have work and homework all week and weekend, but after class on Monday I'll be going to my local GameStop and grabbing the game at midnight unless I'm tipped off on where I can get it early.

In the mean time there's LOST on Thursday and my fav team the Colorado Avalanche are playing sometime this week, so I'll certainly be busy before the game which helps the time pass. :)

I've preordered mine at a small game shop near my place ...

I know they had Burning Crusade last year a day or two before the official release and they still sold it to those who had preordered it, so I'll go check if it's there this week-end (nothing to lose anyway, it's like a two minutes walk) and if it's not there I'll have to wait until tuesday night ... and then go to school next morning and wait another day to play it again :(

Sparkles
04-22-2008, 10:34 AM
I've taken Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday off work so I can play it. :woop:

I pre-ordered it from GAME & got an email yesterday saying that due to demand they're starting to pack them up early and may want to authorise my payment today. I hope that means that it will arrive early too :).

Eh.........i probably will just go to school. GTA IV isn't really my cup of tea. I don't give a crap about it :).

Dont get caught playing it online early man. They are legally street dated for the 29th. I wont be selling it to anyone until 12:01. There are some serious fines that can get placed on your store if street date is broken. Not to mention jepordizing future shipment of product. Id fire any of my crew who broke street date.

It will be killing me to know its in store and I cant play it until 2am when I close the store and go home. I did take the next day off hehe. I let my assisstant manager deal with the next day

The highly anticipated GTA IV is due to be with you on Tuesday 29th April. To make sure that we get this title to everyone who ordered it for release day we have had to start our picking and packing process earlier than we would for our normal pre-orders. As a result, we may look to authorise your credit/debit card from tomorrow.

Email from GAME looks like i will get it the 29th on there website it said theres a high chance i will not :).

I got my copy preordered and totally paid off so all I gotta do is go down to Gamestop, give them my preorder slip, take my copy, and run home like I had the golden ticket from Willy Wonka. :p

I have class at 10 am, so my plan is to get up early and go to KMart and pick it up right when they open. Hopefully they have copies in when I get there :Bounce:
