Just Got A Phone Call

As some may know from my posts, i was planning on attending my local midnight launch tonight as i had a pre order.

However i just got a phone call from my mother who tells me she just passed by a game store before work, by chance asked if they had any copy's in, and they said "sure, here you go"

No more midnight launch for me i guess. Im surprised really, im usually unlucky...

On Another Note: She's still at work and has the game, and i have to go do some things (as i wasn't planning on getting it early) So i will have to wait till at least 5GMT before i play it, then i have a interview to goto at like 6:30..

Oh my luck!

Hahah no im not bullshitting you, if you check my older posts, i was very angry about people getting GTA IV early, because it wasn't fair on us who have waited for it so long.

So no, i wouldn't lie about getting IV, thats stupid.

Ill be getting my hands on the game in a few hours though like i said, have places to go sadly.

Big or small shops?

Try to find the crappiest little shop in town, that's basically what the store is.

In my town theirs the shop i pre orderd from 'GameStation' and the shop i got it from today, who are independent.

Gamestation wouldn't sell earlier, and the independent one did.

You guys should also try out stores such as Tescos and Argos, then aim to find someone who dosnt know fuck all about games, since they will just sell it.

I use to work at Argos, on the tickets that come through the back, and on the tills you order, it shows release dates. So that aint a winner.

Also like somebody else said, go into the store, don't ring up.

Manci lad! I'm Mancunian too.

Nice bit a luck you managed to get there. I just rang up GAME in Ashton to ask them if they had any spare copies, they said there not available to sell until tomorrow.
But, my brother is getting a copy from Gamestation at 12.00 tonight, and then he is going to have to wait all tomorrow morning for mine to come in the mail - hopefully.
