Man...I hate Gamestop. They left me a voicemail saying that I have to be there by 9 pm on Monday night to guarantee my Halo 3 preorder even though I was told I could pick it up anytime within 48 hours of release after it comes out. I'm thinking of never shopping there again due to this.

ahahahahaha

thats why you buy things at game crazy

IGN reviewed halo 3 and gave it a 9.5. That's not bad, but the lowest score they gave of all three. Also, here's a quote I thought you guys might enjoy.

For my money, Halo 3 has the best soundtrack of any videogame.

Also they said "finish the fight" in this review like 10 times. God I'm sick of hearing that.

...Man I want to play this game anyway. The replay system sounds fantastic.

Bad news for people who pre-ordered the Limited Edition. I've seen this happen at work with various other CDs/PC games. The nub that holds the DVD doesn't do a good job holding the disc, and during shipping the disc became loose inside the case thus scratching it to hell.

Don't preorder games. It's not a fucking restaraunt. Before BioShock came out I heard the jerks at Gamestop say after a roommate of mine tried to reserve a copy and they were all reserved up "Oh man he won't be able to get a copy. I've been tellin' everybody to preorder." So, he went to Best Buy and just bought it like a normal thing release day. Gotta love those wizened sages at Gamestop.

On a more useful note, other my roommate is currently driving to a 24-hour Super Wal-Mart in order to find Halo 3. We figure that everybody will be too busy fighting each other at GameStop to think to just go to a normal store. He also bought 12 liters of Game Fuel, as a joke to make it a full Halo experience. I'll be asleep by then myself.

Well, one of the preorders I got for $40. I got this one at Gamestop because I wasn't sure how hard the game would be to get (I remember having trouble just finding Pokemon Diamond/Pearl earlier this year).

Well I was about 20 in line and i got home with the Legendary at 12:15. The helmet is actually bigger than i thought. They should have bumped the price up and made it wearable. I mean i guess it looks about the right size (I'm trying to picture my severed head on the shelf next to it) So anyways isn't the legendary supposed to come with 3 game cases? Mine just has the halo 3 and then extra's box with the 2 discs inside. but when you put em in the helmet part theres alot of extra room, like one and a half dvd cases empty.

Also my friend's special edition was scratched up, and so were the 6 others he opened. They let him swap it out, so that was cool of them.

So my roommate and I were watching the Halo 3 premiere thing they had on Spike TV last night around 11 PM. It was about that time that I said "Fuck it Bobby. Let's just go to Gamestop to chill with your bud and (jokingly)maybe grab Halo 3." Of course, we weren't actually thinking we might have a chance to grab a copy, being that I didn't preorder it.

So we get to Gamestop and sure enough, there's a big line-up in front of the store(why the Starbucks next door didn't stay open is beyond me... they could have made a killing). So we get in line just to say we did. Seriously, at this point we weren't expecting shit, and we were just talking with some guys in the line and had a smoke with a few. So the store opens, the line moves fast as it's pretty much just people turning in their receipt and grabbing the game, and we make it in the store after about ten minutes later. My roommate says hello to his friend and jokingly asks "So... I'm here for a Wii. You guys have any?" To which everyone in the store promptly laughed. Being that we didn't preorder, they set us aside with another guy to wait for all the guys who had the game reserved to buy theirs(there wasn't that many people behind us actually. I look towards the countertop behind the register and notice that they have a mountain of copies of the standard edition, so my hopes actually go up. Finally we get our shot and hells yeah, they have copies, but I go ahead and ask the guy if they have any limiteds left, he asks his coworker and she says he can go ahead and sell the rest, so I look at my roommate and say "fuck yeah I'm buying it!"

So we both walked out proudly with a Limited Edition copy of Halo 3 attained without preorder or any other hassle on Launch morning. Just got in the car, got to the store, waited for the line, picked it up, bought it and left.

Needless to say, all my friends hate me right now.
