Today is the 29th of October, which means Assassin’s Creed 3 comes out tomorrow. From 9pm tonight until 2am tomorrow morning, GameStops across the country are having a midnight launch event in celebration.
Thanks to Hurricane Sandy…every store in my district (as well as the surrounding districts) are not. I’ve been super excited for this game to come out since it was announced and, as disappointed as I am that we’re not going to be open for the midnight, I’m incredibly relieved. I can only imagine how many pissed off customers I’m going to be dealing with tomorrow (assuming we’re open) because we were closed for the super launch. I can’t even begin to count the number of phone calls I got yesterday to verify if we were still going to be open…because there really are some people that crazy who would be willing to drive out in a hurricane just to get their game.
I’m sorry, but I’m not risking my life for your luxury. It’s not like you can play when the power goes out anyway.
Would you venture out into a hurricane during a State of Emergency in order to pick up a video game you’ve been anticipating?
I understand the want of the entertainment…but I value life over fantasy. End of story.
In all seriousness though…
I can’t wait to pick this game up.
