    Name- Erik
    Location- Montgomery, Tx Walmart 24/7
    Time arrived -5:23PM
    Time Left- 12:43AM
    We sat in the entrance of the doorway and then they got "Customer complaints" and we had to move to an little cart alley in the store. Then we got told that we were blocking the way to the carts and coke machines and we were moved outside then at 10:05PM the manager came out with a list and we all put who was first and last and etc (All friends from school) and they took the list and went and made tickets. At 10:15 or so they came out with written tickets with our names and all the info we wrote and told us that they had 19 units and the other ten people that were waiting would get rainchecks and they were sorry about being wrong about the expected 29 units. We got our tickets and then me and some buddies went to get some grub across the street at Sonic and then came back and went to the electronics department and waited for about another 1hr and half. We played guitar hero II and laughed at the PS3 that was on display. (Story *Funny*) One of my "Genius" friends came and waited in line and wanted to buy a Wii but he had no money and he was just waiting for some magic fairy I guess to pop out and give him the money for it. So, after he got his ticket one of our friends came up to chill with us cause he was bored and he sold his ticket to him for $60 and about 20 seconds after the kid sells it, His Mum shows up and says, "Josh!!!!" and he had no color in his face and had this look that he wanted to hurt himself. His mum was going to buy it for him for Christmas and he was begging the kid back for the ticket. Moral of the story=Never sell your ticket a few minutes till midnight when someone might just show up and pay for it After all of that at 12:01 We got all called to layaway and got to purchase our Wii's then we all ran through the store and ran out the doors and drove to my friends house that was 5 minutes away and we got all out our Wii's connected and we all played Zelda all night. (We had 6 wii's connected to 6 different tv's) All in all was a great night =P

    Here's the line after I got out of it.


    Mii so happy...


    My friend had reserved one, too.


    My friend got really mad at me when I decided to update the system firmware before anything else. I didn't know it was 2 30 minute updates...


    Here it is all hooked up.


    We listen to the sound
    Of a nervous breakdown

    4532-8683-6668-7765
    Location: Walmart
    Time arrived: Saturday, 7:30 AM
    Time Left: Sunday 1:00 AM

    My Walmart had 34 systems and i was number 31 and 32 in line. So i got 2 Wiis, going to sell it on Ebay . I know, how ironic. I saw all kinds of nerds in line, like Nintendo nerds, MTG nerds, skateboarder nerds (a bit of a stretch), etc. etc. even D&D nerds. sat and slept for 16.5 hours basically. Very sad for those who were 35 and stuff. They wouldn't leave until the last minute, about 1 hour after midnight on the 19th. The #1 person had "the list" as everyone in line reffered to as pretty funny. We all abided by it and any newcomers were told that there was "the list" that you had to sign your name on to show proof of your place in line just in case someone had to leave or something. early Saturday morning, some pregnant lady had to leave. Wasn't forced to, unlike the PS3, lol so someone got lucky. Some PS3 fanboi was revving his car down Walmart saying "Nintendo Sucks, PS3 rules" like a million times until security and a police officer came and they left. Got into line at midnight, got my 2 Wiis and ran home. Played till 6 in the morning when i couldn't stay up anymore so i went to bed. Slept for 3 hours and then woke up to play some more

    Red Steel: A minor dissapointment. It's not stupendous but yet not bad. It's a little higher than the middle, i would say about an 80%. The single player was interesting and stuff, haven't finished it. The multiplayer is phenominal especially playing with friends on a Wii for the first time. Very fun. Love the KO ability (similar to the Energy Sword in Halo where you charge and kill). You don't kill the person with the KO though but with a successful hit, they can't do anything and are dazed basically. They will most likely die in one shot or so.

    Zelda: Nothing can describe the fun i'm having right now, i'm torn between Red Steel and Zelda.

    Madden: Sad to say, haven't gotten to it yet. But i will soon.
