I got up at 7am walked down to EBgames with my lawn chair and schoolbooks. Got there, NOONE IN LINE i was like...wow i feel like a nerd, ive never done this before. I look at panera nextdoor and am waved at. Four people ahead of me, eating bagels. Went inside till about 8am when someone refused to go inside (its 22 degrees here, with a windchill warning) so we headed outside. Broke out the ds and played multiplayer mariokart....at 9am the guy gets there, we all get up thinking hell let us inside. Nope, locks the door behind him in this freezing weather. Anyway at precisely 10am he takes preorders. I ask him, is it a midnight launch, he said if nintendo magicaly gets more units then yes otherwise no. I said do i have to wait in line or do i guarantee my fifth spot. He said, well ure guaranteed a system but u still have to wait in line.
I look at the piece of paper saying this guarantees ure spot in line, not a system. So i said ok, so is there order to this. He said no everyone who preorders has to fight over them. I was like....woah one sec....so the 40th person (40 people showed up, this is nextdoor to Ohio State) has the same chance as me. After catching his breathe (this guy was ginormous) he said no we only sold 18 of them, ure guaranteed a system at launch but u gotta be there.
That is the night of the OSU/michigan game. If its a midnight launch Ill most likely be partying, but i can always make a stop at ebgames and bring home my wii....semihammered....
Hopefully its not a next day launch or im gonna be feeling aweful when i go get my system, but ill be there....rain or shine or hangover!
But im quite pissed I recieved no call...anyone else.
