There's already a huge line at Best Buy and Walmart. I drove by about 100 people. Your insane waiting this early.

I X I Shock I's Gamercard
Yep, I'm hitting my EB Games at midnight. Well 10 so I can get in the express line. Probably chill in the Timmy's across the street until I see around 100 people for express, then me and my GF can just chill in the line, or one of us there as the other grabs more coffee. I will ask about how many preorders they have, I'm guessing close to 500 if not more, but ill let y'all know.

And to those complaining they aren't fun, do you go alone or with a friend? Golden rule is to never go alone.

I go alone but I've made some new friends from past midnight launches so we just all chill together as we get there. Plus I'm personal friends with the staff of my local GS so I chill with them also.

i was definately not planning on doing the midnight release due to my inability to stay awake past midnight, lol, but my gamestop started doing the midnight release stickers at 6 pm and not many people knew that so i am actually in group 1 so i can literally pull up at midnight, keep the car running, grab my game and be home by 12:10

the manager at my gamestop said he's expecting between 500 and 600 people tonight, damn that's alot of people

I think if your out and about at that time then sure pick one up, but midnight launches are pointless now, I know people who are going tonight for the game so they can get it first before their mates, most of these people are idiots though, people who pre ordered online many of us got the game today without leaving the house, some people got it yesterday, kinda makes the whole midnight launch a bit pointless. Mine was posted thru my door this morning.

As Walter said, by the time you get home and get going, you'll be half asleep and not appreciate the game, day after you'll resume your game and have no idea whats going on lol.

I'd rather get an early start, be awake and have a full attention span for this game.

Now that I've talked all this shit I'll probably be wide awake at midnight and end up going. What a hypocrite.

Off topic: Hey OP you say you're a Gamestop manager, how many pre-orders does your store have for this game?
My gamestop alone has 456 pre orders, expecting to have around 150-200+ of them at are store tonight. Theres also another gamestop in the same parking zone basically at the mall. And I was told the best buy a few blocks down has about 100 preorders, gamestop in the mall has 289. 456 was the the number from my gamestop last I was in there witch was 4pm yesterday.

I know what you mean about people at these events. They dont know anything about games but try and prove you wrong. LoL. Alot of them are good people and valued customers but dont know crap about games. You ask them hey you ever fight the last boss in dead space 3. They say yeah, then asks me for my GT on xbox live. I look at dudes achievements and he has 80 points in dead space 3

Just was informed from my GS that another 120 preorders hit since yesterday. Up to 550+.

Also if any of you's on here live in Wisconsin, in the Milwaukee area, red bull ladies are coming to night, free red bull for everyone!

I'm still debating whether to go or not. I don't feel like standing out in the cold for a few hours just to stay up late installing the game, but...it's GTA V. I've just never cared for midnight releases. Don't want to show up early and idle around for hours on end. I may wait so I can go pick it up in the morning along with 'World War Z' on blu-ray.
