Does anyone know if your supposed to have a preorder in order to pick one up at Gamestop, or can you buy it there?
I'll be going to Gamestop to pick up my pre-order, I'm a nightowl so me and the kiddo are up at midnight anyway. I'm sure there will be a similar assortment as was at the same store buying wotlk...a few teens, several 20-40 guys most of whom will be surrounding and slathering over the lone mid-20s female with some sort of daddy issues who's trying to pretend she plays to get attention and will probably give half of them some form of std later, and a few half-way normal people trying not to get too close to the aforementioned knot of angst surrounding the hoho. I will probably be the biggest oddball since I will have a 10month old with me >.<After we pick up our 2 copies we will head to pick up the hubby from work, go home, upgrade accounts, then see if we can get on...probably won't...and we will go watch tv til bedtime :)We play on a crappy connection so digital download would probably be a pita. Also, I like having the physical copy, if you have a patch go bad it makes reinstalling much smoother and if for some reason you ever need it you will know your game key.
In case anyone wants to see one of the live events, Gamespot will be livestreaming the Fountain Valley, CA midnight event.http://www.gamespot.com/shows/tonight-on-the-spot/?event=wow_cataclysm_launch20101206Starts at 11:00pm PST and goes until whenever things slow down (probably 1am). If you weren't able to go to an event, you can check this out I guess.
Im going fishing! Server first inc (I hope.) havent decided if it will be my pally tank or my disc/shadow priest, both of whom are ready and itching to go. The pally can ezmode any of the mobs he'd have to face, but my priest can levitate... what to do, who to choose? Well Ill figure it out tomorrow night.
I'm heading out in some min! going to wait outside gamestop in about 4 hours :)
I met Miyari at the release event at the local gamestop :DI feel super cool.
