I am going to pick up my game at the midnight release at gamestop. But i am wondering if it is worth it to go there at 10 when the open or maybe at eleven. I was planning on just heading there at midnight and getting my copy.

I am not sure i want to hang out in gamestop for two hours.

Just looking for opinions and wasting some more time before it comes out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I think it would depend if you have pre-ordered the game or not, if you have the game on pre-order just turn up to pick up the game if you don't it may be worth getting there a bit quicker to make sure you get a copy.

I really wouldn't call them parties usually its a bunch of guys sitting around talking about the game in their own little groups messing with phones. Checking the every minute which makes time go even slower. But last time I went to a release party the Gamestop gave out a bunch of free t-shirts.

I preordered (of course!) and that was why i was just thinking i would go at midnight and get it.

The reason they open ahead of time is to get everyone pre-run up so that they just start handing it out to those who have purchased theirs.

Free tshirts would be sweet if they are AC2 related but thats probably a first come first serve type of thing...

It depends on where the GameStop is located.

Mine is in a very populated beach town in a very upscale Towne Center and I had no trouble at all when I got there at 11:15 to pick up GTA4 at midnight.
