Eh...I just pre-order off Amazon or digital download. I either get it the moment i comes out or in the afternoon after work.
Ah yeah, but you miss out on the, erm, interesting, atmosphere of a midnight launch queue.
I would rather stick my head in a septic tank...
Gave up on them for a number of reasons, most notably the fact I have responsibilities and staying up late to get a game and playing it for a couple hours before I have to sleep isn't worth it. And that's assuming the servers for the game/console don't crash, or I don't have to download a multi-GB day 1 patch along with millions of other people. I'll just pick it up the next day with no line and no weirdos.
