Halo Reach: the Midnight Opening


By Coxxorz - Posted on 13 September 2010

11:00 pm - I'm about number 45 in line, after budding in front Dark Nightowl. So far so good, looks like we'll be getting that energy sword. Look out tomorrow, Blackwalt!

11:01 - P.S.: How the hell do I get images uploaded with my iPhone?!!

11:21 - Nightowl is showing me photos from his vacation. Trying to act interested.

11:22 - Wait, I just remembered Nightowl visits this site– delete last post.

11:34 - I think he's reading HoC right now on his Blackberry. Looks steamed for some reason. Better go take pictures somewhere for a bit.

11:36 - Look at the losers lined up at Future Shop. Already not enough freebies to go around for them, and no HardW00D in sight!

11:38 - Not quite sure what the lineup behind the restaurant is for. Afraid to ask. Moving along...

11:40 - HUGE lineup at EB Games. Not sure why. THERE'S NO PREORDER SWAG THERE, MORONS! They look angry. Better stay back.

11:41 - Just remembered that I forgot to pick up Swag. Hope he didn't need that chocolate bar too badly.

11:55 - almost time... there's still less than 100 people here, looks like enough freebies for everyone who bothered to show up.

12:05 - they just let in about 30 people. So close!

12:10 - Now they're letting people without preorders go In ahead of us. I can't believe I paid extra to line up twice!

12:15 - finally inside! And... Another lineup. Sigh. People with preorders to the customer service desks, people without to the cashes.

12:16 - Just as well Swag isn't here. An impenetrable wall prevents wayward purchases.

12:18 - Holy shit, a girl! Almost dropped phone.

12:19 - Yes, that's a Master Chief hoodie.

12:23 - I'm up next! Looks like 3 t-shirt designs to choose from. No shortage of Legendary Edition. Wonder why.

12:24 - They're out of the skull ones! Dammit!!!

12:25 - Got game in hand, and there's an unexpected bonus- $5 Best Buy gift card! Aww, thanks cute cashier girl!

12:26 - Nightowl didn't get the gift card! He's finding out why.

12:27 - Lots of junk "impulse" purchases. Got it, got it, do not want. Holy crap, there's a 360 Halo Reach Edition?!!

12:27 - Turns out only standard edition gets $5 freebie. Sorry dude.

12:28 - Nightowl is pulling a fast one... trading in his shirt for the skull one at the non-preorder line! Bastard!

12:29 - Flirting with the cute cashier girl pays off - I score a waterless tattoo. Take that, Nightowl!

12:30 - Time to head home. A good night's work!

12:49 - Just got in. Pictures to follow!

Child's Play!

If I was and if she was a cute as you claim, I would have walked out at least with her number, chances are she probably would have told me to stick around a leave with her.

But alas, while you were waiting in line with the rest of the **AHEM** loser guys in line. Guess what...*AHEM*..who... *AHEM* I was doing?
