    Hey all,

    Please forgive me if this is in the wrong place,but I just got word from my
    friend yesterday that is the manager at Gamestop here in my town that they
    quite possibly will not open for the midnight release of War for Cybertron,in
    my town atleast,others might in other places,but I am so bummed about that
    when I was set on sitting up all night to play it,now I will have to wait till the
    following morning at 10 o:clock to get it.That really pisses me off as Wally
    World right down the hill from GS is releasing theres at midnight.I swear if
    they don't open up and give me my game at midnight I am gonna get on here
    and post on every news site to stop buying from GS.

    So whoever has it preordered if I were you to go check and see,if its for all
    of them demand a refund and go buy it at walmart.I am half tempted to do
    that myself,while half the world is playing the 20 something level of WFC
    we will be sitting at home doing nothing till they open at 10,what a jipp.

    Also sorry about the rant.

    Unless it's a big name FPS (Halo, CoD, etc.) or a Madden, GameStops tend to not bother with midnight launches.

    I certainly wouldn't expect WFC to have one.

    Me and my brahs don't want to spike up our faux-hawks and go out late for this game, it doesn't even have yearly installments!

    ^ Brofist!!!

    If I recall, when I preordered mine, the guy said that they'd do a midnight release, but he could also not have known what he was talking about. It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't. I have to make a return later this week, so I'll ask them if they are.

    I think mine might, the guy I preordered from is a TF Nut like me, spent a good few minutes after paying discussing different TF things. But honestly if it doesn't I won't be upset, I got Mon/Tues/Wed off so after dropping the kiddo at school around 8ish I can sit have a cup o' coffee close by and be there right at 10.

    Plus as much as I don't like GS sometimes from a business standpoint not everygame can be afforded a midnight release.

    Because I'd really go out at Midnight for anything anyway.

    But fine if GS won't open Midnight, as long as I get it before it's cold.

    I'm gettin mine from Best Buy (Jazz ftw!) and having them ship it since I really don't feel like driving all the way out there to pick it up, so I probably won't even get the game for a week+ after it comes out anyway. But I never was much for getting it first, games nowadays usually have problems that need to be fixed via updates anyway so it's best to let them sort that stuff out before I buy it.

    With all the money EA threw into advertising that GoW rip-off, it only makes sense GSs would have midnight releases.

    /\ This.

    It's just a game, you'll still live even if you have to wait a few extra hours to get it. Big friggin' deal.

    You guys know Wal Mart puts all games out at Midnight right? lol, you don't have to hit gamestop. Hit Walmart, grab yourself a Sprite, Cheetos, Toilet Paper, Apples and a Frozen Pizza. Your good to go!

    I think this is for people who pre-ordered for Shockwave.

    I wouldn't worry about Shockwave, the DLC will probably include him for a 1.99 eventually. If that is to much, order it from amazon (55 dollars ZERO TAX) and it comes out cheaper, even with the DLC.


    I believe it... a Walmart trip for Batteries turns into a 200 dollar extravaganza lol. Just happened last week to me....

    Exactly. I'd rather sleep and pick it up after work on release day.

    That way I'll at least be awake/alert at work and not have to suffer all day just because I got some friggin' game I was too tired to play.

    I hate dragging ass at work.
