GameStop cancels ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ midnight launch due to Hurricane Sandy

While many anticipate the release of “Assassin’s Creed III”, those in the North East will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on this hot Ubisoft game. (Assassin's Creed III, PS3, Xbox 360)

Well that sucks. Sounds like I'll be waiting for my copy then.

You could just put your hand out the window and see if a copy of it being thrown around lands in your hands...better then waiting doing nothing, just saying.

Insane winds, downpours, freezing conditions, floods, power outages, hailstone, tidal waves.
The Americans call it a "Super Storm."
In Ireland we call it the summer.

I shouldn't be making light of this as I've lived through about 8 of those hurricanes, but that was priceless! lol

I'm glad I didn't pre-order at Gamestop then, but I still have to wait a couple of days. Friggin Amazon is taking forever to process my trade ins so I won't have the money till they do. Oh well, looks like I'll just replay AC2 in the time being.

No, Sandy, you won't take this opportunity away from me! I'm going outside to get my copy whether you like it or not!

... On second thought, it seems pretty scary out there.

I'm not even concerned about video games when the flooding is pretty crazy in NYC right now. My campus flooded and parts of Coney Island is losing power.

Thats a shame.

If you dont live in these areas and only see it on the news its easy to be dismissive and not care about it.

Its only when you hear about things like a game midnight launch getting cancelled that the true weight of the human tragedy really hits home. I mean, that could have been me.

God bless all you brave souls and I hope you can game on tomorrow.
