That’s right someone is already in line for the Gears 3 release that happens next week Wednesday.
I'm not actually sure whether I should be saddened by this or impressed :O That's dedication to Gears, but.... a week?! Really?
This is how i imagine him being http://www.gametrailers.com...
sure I can understand wanting a game on the first day it releases, but COOOOME OOOOON!!???
I slept, and by that I mean I stood freezing my ass off, the night before the 360 launch. This, er, little much.
"Its like waiting for Christmas, times a thousand". I loved that episode
He does know Amazon has release day shipping for 99 cents... right?
Yeah what's the point in this especially if you preordered? I will go get it at midnight.
Being in line this early?!?....It aint that deep.
Saddened, Apparently this person had nothing better to do with this next week but stand outside a shop and glance at his watch aprrox 35,000-50,000 times. Sucks to be him/her I guess
Didn't read the article since I pretty much got the idea of the majority of info it could give me in the title, let alone caption underneath. Thought if I am not going to read the article I may as well put the option just in case, lot of girl gamers are pretty into gears
Never underestimate the willpower and dedication that some gamers have. Cliffy is the one who said that the easter egg in Gears of War 3 will take months, if not years to find. Wait until the game is released and see how people will find it in no time.
Lol, I already know what it is and it is really off the wall to get, takes a lot of steps but is crazy rewarding.
Got one word for this person - SAD ..... End of
While he waits, I sit at home playing a legit copy of the game. Good to have a wife in the industry.
I hate you. Just kidding. No, I really do hate you. :)
That guy hasn't been there for 36 hours. I don't care, no game is worth staying outside on a line for a week, NO GAME! That guy has went home and fell a sleep within those 36 hours. His phone and his other devices may have died since then as well. Joke video!?!?! EDIT: I should drive over there and see if he is still there and let him know how smart I think he is.
You never know. He could have friends that charge his stuff for him, bring him food, etc. Just because no game isn't worth staying outside in like for a week to you, doesn't mean someone else feels the same way. People are fucking crazy. I live in NYC, I can see someone doing this. People do crazy shit here all the time lol
I live in NYC. So, I know crazy stuff happens all the time, but really a week before the game releases? Does the guy have no job or something? If he doesn't he should be using that time to go look for one. To each their own. I have better things to do than to be at a retailer store a week before a game releases.
I've been seeing a lot of people taking off 1-2 weeks just to play the game. I agree with you though, I have much better things to do besides camp outside a store for a week lol I believe people did the same crap when the 360/PS3 launched. Not sure if it was a week, but it was at least 3-4 days.
GOW 3? Kinda late for that no? Kratos came out last year ^_^
If the article involves xbox or gears then gow means gears of war. If an article involves sony or the playstaion or whatever, then its god of war. If its both..then god help us all.
Yeah Guy. Try to keep up.
Thats so funny.
I believe its spelled GEOW3.
If you knew anything about acronyms, you'd know that GOW can stand for both Gears of War and God of War. They BOTH are applicable. But of course, due to your blindness on account of console loyalty, you refuse to obey even known linguistic laws.
Lmao. Have fun.
Its actually GOW3 but i have fixed it to say Gears 3
@GodChild no his devices have not died he has some external battery chargers. As well as a solar charger.
There's dedication... and then there's this (I don't mean that in a good way). This is depressing. Waiting around 168 hours for a 10-12 hour game? That sounds practical. Then again, I'm sure this guy will easily invest another 156-158 hours into the multiplayer to balance it all out as can be assumed by his diehard love for the game. To each their own I guess.
Guy is smart. Epic will see this and give him free stuff.
Someone needs a life
This is truely pathetic...
how about the guy that used his WELFARE check to get a 3ds. he waited in line several days before launch to get that thing he was also the first to get the wii in north America. This gears 3 guy isn't that bad at least he isn't about to use tax payer money.
"This gears 3 guy isn't that bad at least he isn't about to use tax payer money." And how do you know that" My guess is he's probably using his parents money. I mean if he can stand out there that long then that means he have no job.
Someone get that boy a flute and a can that says tips. I'm not waiting in line for any game nor reserving 1 either. To each his own I guess but the only line I'm waiting in will be the 1 that cashes checks.
this would be pathetic if this kid has a job or wife and kids that hes skipping out on to do this but he looks kinda young so im gunna assume hes just enjoying his life. nothing wrong with that. some people might say we waste our time playing video games but to each his own. i think its kinda cool to get the most outta life and hes gunna have some great stories to tell his fam friends and someday children. i say let the kid enjoy himself.
Thats a true fan But Im also a true fan, gettin Epic Edition and new 360 S Gears Of War LE console with 320GB FOr sure Epic and MS will notice this :D
Yeah, Cliff should go & meet this dude personally & bring Ice-T with him. And give dude all the new collectors items free if he makes it!
Yea, it sucks for this game sitting there holding in his poop for a week and not taking a piss because he would lose his spot in line.... Seriously, he has to leave to take a dump sooner or later.
He's a foolish fan. All he had to do was time the store and people gathering....if he has all this free time I'm sure he could've just visited the store about 4 times a day...not too metion there really won't be people until it's about 3days prior to release, and even if he's 1st to buy he won't be the first to get it...I mean only at that one Best Buy and there's how many in the US?..plus what about the people who will get the "hook up" from friends who work at places like gamestop? It's so not worth it kid....and part of me wants to believe he only did this for attention.
how about the bathroom and taking a shower if your waiting in line your not supposed to leave lol
Now that's what I call dedication lol! Hell if I were Epic i'd give the guy the copy for free for camping out for over a week.
That would be nice but image when the net epic game comes out. You will have a lot of people waiting.
Well I wouldn't announce it to everyone and it'd only be a one time thing. I would never go in expecting a free game of course.
I'm as excited as any Gears fan but I can wait until the afternoon when UPS delivers it to me. This person isn't wired properly. I used to work at an EB and Anime Crash in NYC years ago so I'm not surprised. Seen his kind many times before.
But.. why? I mean.. this guy has 10 days? Unemployed? No school? Also waiting in line an hour is worse then 10 days with absolutely no one? I just don't get what this guy is trying to do..
Actually seven days left. Sept. 20th is the release date.
Sorry I love Gears just as much as the next guy (preordered mine on Newegg), but this is just PATHETIC. What's the point? Even IF there is a line, it won't form until at least the day before, max 2 days before. Jesus, a whole WEEK? So you're going to sit on the sidewalk in New York City of all places, all day and throughout the night? Real smart.
Play.com its already shipping Gears of War 3 one week sooner.I guess online retailers dont want to lose this opportunity to cash in.
what a idiot just pre order the GAME like SMART ppl. not like its the xb720. lol psn : cedaridge / xbl: cedaridge
Wtf? I'll just walk into walmart day of release and prob still get a few games in before him.
At first I was thinking this was stupid when you can just preorder the game and be garunteed a copy of the game; then I realized he's waiting in line to meet Cliff B. who will be at that location handing out free Gears collectors items on a first come first served basis. I received an email invite to this event since I live in NY. So yeah it makes much more sense if you are a huge Gears fan. It's a special promotion Epic is doing at the flagship Best Buy in NYC. Cliffy B. will apparently ride in on pimped out Gears of war chopper bike too.
If that context you provided is indeed true, this makes a hell of a lot more sense. Seeing as how that is extremely plausible, I bet that is what is going on and this guy is just making sure he is the first to see Clify B and get some cool schwag.
He's probably expecting to get some free stuff for being first in line, maybe hoping for some exposure to Epic.
His console has no games.
I would like to say "get a job", but in today's economy, I just can't. He's technically a huge fan, but he's more of an attention seeker.
Guess i should go to my local best buy and whip out the old folden chair.
wow and i thought i was hardcore. Oh well i dont have to suffer since my copy is coming from amazon at my doorstep
Someone got too much time to waste. This kinda thing is retarded.
I'd understand if he was waiting in line for a new console release, but he's waiting for a game that a majority of stores that sell games will have more than enough copies to go around come launch?
Hahahaha what a loser to have so little of a life that they can waste 6 days in front of a store to get a game a few minutes before other people which is just a sequel and wont be much different then the one before anyways
