That article is bullshit. it'll be like RDR, within 6 months of release they threw in the other outfits that had been "Hinted at"
With Mafia 2 they were offered as separate DLC.

But I'm getting the gamestop pre-order, because that's where I do my preorders.

which preorder are you getting

im going for the walmart one
Amazon because they usually give a ton of credit for most major preorders. When I ordered Kilzone 3 I essentially got the game for $20. $20 off retail price, a $20 amazon credit, AND the retro map pack for free. Oh, and free release day shipping.

Don't really care about the preorder DLC tbh. I'd rather get the game for less money and on the day it comes out.

Btw they've said the first level as a beat cop will be basically a tutorial.

I picture the intro and cut scene showing him coming home from the war, voice over from him explaining him getting a job in the police force, with him walking down the street and you gaining control.
Simple "follow the instructions, press derp to hurp" etc.
Well yeah. How else are you gonna change suits? You can obviously buy new clothes.

lol @ press derp to hurp

I take a safehouse as

Safehouse = a house/apartment in which you can "save, sleep, change clothes, weapons, etc"

R* said a little while back that the LA Noire pre order stuff would be made available to everyone after a while, and that it wouldn't take as long as the RDR pre order stuff.

See the last part after The War Horse section.

Yeah, i mean it'll put a scratch in the bank account for a week, but it'll be worth it, i think.
Paid the same for GTA: IV on release day, too.

And didn't even THINK of using amazon

Plus, my "local" gamestop is 6 miles away. It takes me two hours total to and from. I ride a bicycle.

Never again, am i doing that for a video game.

lol sucks bro
I have 2 of them in town, not sure how long by bike but 10 minutes by car for me.

Amazon is pretty good, they usually offer $10-20 amazon credit on game preorders. They did on Portal 2 which I bought although I didn't get free release day shipping (could be cause I ordered the night before) so I went with super saver and its still not here, estimated date is between tomorrow and friday.

Super saver sucks. Don't you go to college lillb? If you're a student, you get free release day shipping with Amazon Prime for a year. You also get free 2-day shipping and $4 overnight shipping on pretty much anything else. I've never had to use the super saver shipping since I started school because I get everything in two days or less for free with Prime.

Most people I know at my college don't even know that they get Amazon Prime for free, which is depressing considering how much you can save with it. My TV would have cost $100 to ship normally and even that was free.

I believe I already used my year of Amazon Prime a while back, so that's no longer an option for me.
Whatever it was no big deal to me, and its not like I can even play it now so I don't really care when it gets here.

Yeah my subscription ends in June I think. I'm going to renew it though since it's saved me well over the $70 or whatever it is to renew it.
