To celebrate the release of GameStop’s most pre-ordered game, GameStop will be throwing Destiny midnight launch parties across America and over 4,100 stores will be taking part.
Don't think I will be rushing to a launch party that night.
The game is not that good..
"In my opinion"
Lol you played the game? I only got to play the alpha and beta. I thought those were pretty damn solid. Glad to know the full game sucks though...
It's good enough to tie me over until Bungies real games make their glorious appearance on the Xbox One. All been downhill from them after Halo 3. Fortunately Halo 1-3 are so amazing they are still going to be this years best titles. Destiny reminds me of a Borderlands that isn't all stupid animated with cell shading and humor that isn't funny - which is actually a great thing. I'll get a few weeks play out of Destiny and that is all I'm looking for. I'm not sure what this grand 10 year plan is for Destiny but I'm not expecting it's going to pan out how they imagine. Destiny beta was fun, but one thing is for sure: It isn't Halo caliber - ESPECIALLY in the competitive multiplayer realm, they must have used all their talent in that realm on Halo or the geniuses behind it joined up with 343i.
I don't have to rush. Digital preoreder on X1 with Vanguard preorder bonuses! Was not expecting bonus so its a.. bonus.
I work at panda express and it is next door and I work till 10 30 haha XD so perfect and dont work the next day.
im wondering how many panda expresses are next to gamestops, now that you said that. the same setup is in central florida, right near my apartment.
My local Gamestop is next to a Panda Express and I live in Del Mar, California (Northern San Diego).
Same here, but in Texas.
@temple I'm about 50 miles from you in Temecula and game stop is two suites down from panda express lol
same for the gamestop in north hills ca LOL
Lol whoa that trippy! Guess Panda thinks gamers are big fans. Here in the Antelope Valley (Lancaster and Palmdale area of southern California) we have the same setups. In east Lancaster there's a Panda Express right next door to gamestop, in East Palmdale they are across the street from eachother. In west Palmdale they're right next to eachother too. It's like one is stalking the other O.o
Hey im just north of you in the San Fernando Valley :)
not a very good idea. fanboys will start fighting over which version is better.
Nah! There will only be PS4 gamers in those GameStop lines. The other camp will be making lines in Macy's for their new fragance.
Probably not, the MS fanboys will probably just run up and down the line spraying perfume, eating Doritos and drinking mountain dew. Kidding aside, the game is going to be really fun anyone on either system will have a grand time!
Not a fanboy, but nope! Digital route on Xbox baby! Also live in Bend, Oregon so play in it 12:01 my time! Don't hate, I'm buying it on Xbox One cause the joysticks on the controller are better and battery life is better on X1 controller. Also more friends on there. Otherwise may have gotten it for my PS4. Still hard to believe its just days away!
Don't care too much about that... The food is free, right? x)
Yeah, they will! I'm bringing pizza!
so what ur saying is to get there at 12:15, sit in the car, and wait till it empties out? Seriously, I have never had fun at a midnight launch. Some of the most obnoxious and disgusting people I have ever seen. Not to mention almost everybody smoking in the line completely kills it for me
I went to Best Buy for the Halo 4 one and that was it but I enjoyed it. It was basically a bunch of gamers talking about the game they cant wait to get and other stuff.
While these guys are waiting to buy the game, I will already have it downloaded...when midnight strikes I will already be playing while these guys are lined up waiting to buy!
not sure where you are in the world...but the digital copies supposedly dont work until 3 AM EST
If you have a Microsoft Store ear you, go there. I have been to both Gamestop and Microsoft Store launches. Let me tell you, you get way more stuff at the Microsoft Store.
It's not a party without chicks!
Unless its a sausage party.
Gotta wonder what kinda chicks will be at an event like this....
2 weeks vacation started today... first midnight launch for a game since Metal Gear 4. cannot wait!!!
I'll be going to the Best Buy midnight launch for the T-shirt.
same here, I'm going to try and be first in line, they must have something special planned for this release like they did for Halo 4.
Most midnight events are such shit. They give the store zero budget so its up to the manager if they want to pay out of pocket for pizza and other stuff. I figure the servers will be struggling that night already I will just wait for my amazon order to arrive.
Ppffff.... Stand in line for a game! Ppl still do that? I'm good I'll just download it from the comfort of my home... And no I'm not interested in trading my games back for a few bucks..
Mine is downloading right now I think. No need to wait in line.
Im actually setting up at my local gamestop with consoles and tvs because I own a gaming lounge for the Midnight launch of destiny. The store manager approached me with the idea. They are expecting around 300 people to show up.
Well they had free pizza from PAPA GINOS here at GAMESTOP on the east coast for a MIDNIGHT RELEASE . That was good. But they also had a DJ playing awful DUBSTEP music! I thought FUNK was the music of choice for gamers and geeks like me!!!
im going drunk and playing drunk
