    No. That's retarded. It's just a video game.

    FU sir, I took the launch days off for both Street Fighter IV's. But then there was no way in hell that game was going to suck so... to answer the OP's question; no, not for this game :3

    Yo dat's cool. I'm just not as big on devoting time to video gaming.

    Fuck that, I'm completely lying. I spent nearly all non-working, non-wife hours of 2009 playing Fallout 3.

    I just won't take time off for games. BUT YA DON'T HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT

    If I do, it won't be for the game. I don't own a modern video game system.

    Probably not, unfortunately, especially considering I have the entire week of the 4th off for Summer Shutdown. Though, I fear that I will lose serious skill groud to you and some of the peeps on here if I don't... :)

    If I took a day off of work every day I'd rather play video games, I'd be fired. :D

    Lucky I do get off early enough, so the wait wont kill me! I'm trying to finish FF13 before WFC touches down, with this game boring me to death it seriously will never get finished once I have WFC :lol

    I meant to say a day during the week of 6/22. I got a bunch of sick time and vacation time left so I thought about taking that Friday off.

    The game will always be there. If I can play it immediately, great, but if not, I'm not going to shove responsibilities aside for something that can wait until the evening, or next day.

    Did you not see my post about having a bunch of vacation time? My job encourages vacation time. There I'm not shoving responsibilities aside.
