I promise it is only a coincidence that I live in Phoenix and work in Glendale... It seems to be the motto here lately, If the heat doesn't kill you somebody here might. Crimes out of control around these parts lately. Hell even 3 cops have been killed this year alone.

Master Chief wasnt there.

The way the crowd was last night where I was, If someone tried to rob them there would be a mob of people going after them, these robbers would have literally been torn limb from limb by 13 year old boys up past their bedtimes.

Just gotta be smart like me and go to the mall Gamestop where their is only about 150-200 pre-orders! I pre-ordered yesterday and got in line about 11:15 and was in and out and home by 12:30 on the dot playing Halo 3.

I too pre-ordered about 5pm yesterday. I got in line around 8 and i was out of there with my copy about twenty-five minutes past midnite. The people in line were cool and I only saw one police car for about five minutes. I lost my cell phone while in line and somebody returned it to GameStop where I picked it up today. Gamers are the coolest people and from now on I'll only pre-order from GameStop.
