As I stated earlier...I have changed my mind, and I am going. All jacked up on caffeine and rearing to go. I am a night owl anyways, so I will probably get a few good hours of playing in.

Yep. Obviously nothing else to do tonight but being awake and thinking about it anyway, might as well.

I feel I swayed the poll unfairly now, so there's guilt involved too.

Look at you guys, changing your minds. You're so indecisive!

Me? I planned on not going, then I was, then I wasn't, then I was definitely going, then I kind of felt like not going, then I got semi-talked into going, then I changed my mind, thought about it once more, and decided to not go and wait.

I'm in the same boat as you lot.

Alright captain it's time for you to steer the ship. What say we postpone the Harry Potter and the Twilight sleepover and go buy this game? Call it.

I plan on going but canceling my order at the last minute and then purchasing every Burger King game in the store (as everyone stands behind me waiting until im done).

But for real, I get out of work at 11, so I can make it there around 11:30 -- prol just wait in the car until crowd clears, or do I have to go get a ticket. How does a midnight party work? Can I just show up? I have game paid off.

At my local Gamestop, they give you time to get it paid off (if one hasn't already) then they make you get in a line starting about a half hour before (have to wait outside until then), and they ask that you have your ID and receipt readily available.

Postponing an audiobook sleepover? Ehh, I dunnooooo...

The main thing keeping me waiting until the morning now is that I have something to really look forward to in the morning, and also so I don't have to make another trip into town in the AM to pick up World War Z.

The problem with the morning for me is that Gamestop doesn't open until 10am. I wanna have my morning coffee and run people over long before that.

Wow, you're right. I could have swore the one I have it reserved at opened up at 9 AM. Shit.

I wish I could just pay someone to bring it to me at midnight. Would make things much, much easier.

I've only done one midnight release, which was GTA4. It was an ok experience at best. They (BestBuy) did give out some cool GTA items while I was there.
I've got mine pre-ordered and don't mind waiting for delivery, seeing as how I have a shit ton of other games to play in the mean time, plus y'know, a regular life to get on with.

Drove by my store and saw close to 100 people in line 40 min before launch. Nope Nope Nope. Tomorrow morning for me.
Hope everyone that went had a good time at their launch though!

Decided to go after all. I purposely went late and there was a long line of people at the door. This line was for all the people that didn't have a number. Thankfully I did so I just strolled up to the door, was let in, and picked up my Collector's Edition and Limited Edition guide. As I walked back to my car all I could hear was, "Goddamn" "What'd he get?" "Lucky motherfucker" "I'm so jealous" etc.

Worth it.

I left at about ten past midnight and sat in the car for about fifteen minutes until the line was gone and I was in and out.

Rockstar said that they will pull stuff down if you just post cutscenes or attempt to make a profit off of the game footage, otherwise you're good to go

How many of us changed our minds?

I'm about to head out to Fred Meyer to pick up a copy now. It's right down the street from me, so I have an excuse.

I used to work at Gamestation when I was at Uni and midnight launches were fun to do. Always really busy and not all the guys coming out were hermit morons.

For info my local GAME store had over a 1000 preorders!

LOL, there was a few dudes at my local Gamestop slamming back "Natty Ice". However, in the 45 minutes I was there, the police drove by 4 like times. (After the first time, the dudes left) All in all, it was a civil experience.

Got there 5 after 10, was number 45 to go in, turned out being more like 60 haha. So I asked the people, we had 600 preorders, and it looked like around 200-250 people showed. What I can't believe is the number of parents there to get the kids their game at midnight. My parents would've been like 'fuck that! You get it tomorrow'
