    Yesterday night, when I came home from dinner, I had gotten a call from Gamestop about (since I pre-oredered it) Super Smash Bros. Brawl and the midnight opening. The creepy thing was the recording's voice. It was a woman with extreme haughtiness. Here's what the message said:

    "Hellooooooooooo. This is Gamestop calling to tell you that Su[er Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii will be available tomorrow night at the midnight opening. Come at ten to join in the fun! (giggle)"

    Has anyone else gotten a message like this?

    I got a message from my EB Games, but it wasn't about a midnight release. Just calling to say my copy is ready.

    Yes, I received the call from some automated voice. It basically just summarized that their having a midnight release and to join the tournament shortly after.

    Not to mention they said:

    "You can get Brawl for $9.99 when you trade in 2 decent Wii games."

    Something along those lines.

    I dont think my ebgames will call me. they are all sooo lazy. I dont think Im going to get this call. the whole point of preordering is to get it on the first day, if you dont what the point, honestly.

    even though i know the people behind the counter hate this, i was in teh mall so i just popped in and asked them what time they're getting brawl, so they crossed me off the list of people they have yet to call

    Yeah I got the call yesterday, apparently it was the same creepy woman.
    I was hoping it would be Mario or someone cool doing it.

    Got it. The person said to come in around 10ish for some reason; I didn't catch it. Also, how are they going to handle selling the games? They mentioned getting there early to get things squared away so that you can get out of there shortly after midnight. But I don't want to have to sit around there for 2 hours (from 10 P.M.). I need to go grocery shopping in the town Gamestop is in, but I don't want my groceries rotting (or freezing) in the trunk. I figured I'd stop in around 10ish, take care of the business side of the transaction, and then leave to go shopping. I'd then return around 11:30 or so. Would this work?

    Yup, I got the same call last night. I didn't pick up since it was an unfamiliar caller so it got recorded on to my answering machine.
