Posted by me in the Halo3 launch thread:
"Called the BB in West Madison. They said they have hats and shirts for first come first served. A rumor of the 25 chairs but they hadnt seen any. They are going to have all teh accessorie stuff availible. They couldnt say about their pre-order to received numbers."

A friend and I will be showing up sometime after work. Hes got a pre-order for limited and Im in for the regular so it doesnt really matter what time. Im looking for syringes to shoot GameFuel up with. *sarcasm* I think im more excited for the game to drop so I dont have to hear about it in every fucking media outlet.


sweet, i'll see you there, man ^_^. I was planning on stopping by after work tomorrow to see if there were any people lined up.

I wonder if we'll have to wait outside the whole damn time before they "open" up at midnight, or if they'll be nice and have a spot picked out inside the store after closing..

it looks like it's supposed to start raining around 10pm, so you might want to bring an umbrella just in case.

Im fully prepared and supportive of it raining. Will make the rediculous fact of waiting for it fully highlighted. Why is it i find it entertaining to waste my time for stuff like this? Its not like im even a huge halo fan, i just like camping.

Wow so you guys are going to blow possibly $60 on the game and camp out for hours with no sure bet you will get any freebies seeing they are usually limited?

Wow lol.....

$60 no, $20 in RZ
Hours no, maybe an hour at max. I could careless about tshirts and inflatable chairs. I just love the rediculiousness of the whole thing, esp if it rains.

LOL well after camping with my brother off and on for his PS2 at launch and then standing 3 hours in line for Gamecube launch only to be first inline of 5 people lol for that I just dont have it in me anymore.. the only time I will do any kind of camping or standing around will be if they have something on Black Friday I want...

Well have fun with that and be sure to report back the details of the madness and keep a tally on the "Oh my God I got it" and the random chants of "halo" you hear lol...

bah.. that's no fun. hanging out in line gives you a good chance to meet a bunch of people you know will be playing the game and live around the same area as you. Hopefully you Xbox guys won't be too proud to bring your DSes for some Pacman Vs. or Tetris multiplayer.

For me, not being a fan of Halo, the big pull is the online co-op, so i'll be able to play the game with my pal in the military.. i have fond memories of playing Goldeneye with him back in the day before he joined the military, and now that he's gotten into 360, it'll be great to play along-side him despite across the states.

someone posted a $260 360 premium, refurbed by MS with the new heatsink, on craigslist. I was *this* close to getting it, but I need to wait until NG2 comes out. can't spend $320 on essentially one game (with scattered arcade titles.)

Does anyone know what stores in Milwaukee on the east side are having a midnight release for Halo 3?

Have fun at the midnight openings tonight. I have to wake up too early. Staying up past midnight on a weekday is out of the question unfortunately.

My exciting Halo 3 launch event will be waltzing into Circuit City (or wherever) tomorrow during lunch and picking it up.

Heya, I'm not too sure if I ran into any of you guys out there, but I was somewhat close to the front of the line. I ended up getting there a little bit after Heroes ended.

I took a couple pictures of everything, which you can find here:

Two others and me were at the end of the sidewalk when we got there at 10. I got a little drunk testing out my friends new keg-o-rator and they talked me into going that early. One dude with us just walked through and got a shirt, didnt buy anything. I was surprised how many people were still outside when I was leaving.

Sounds fun..... so did you buy the more expensive pre-scratched copy that has microsofts commitment to quality products label? I still can't believe they have people paying for a game at those prices with games they knew were not in the cases right.... Hey get it out the door and make the dollar worry about the problems later... kind sounds like the idea they had behind the 360...

oh yeah almost forgot you ever see the movie "Accepted" lol you look like the rocker guy that was delivering kegs in the movie lol..

Circuit City (Westside - Madison) still has the free "wall scroll" if you buy Halo 3 there. I picked up the regular edition (no scratches thank you).

My friend had the scratched edition pre-ordered, I just got the normal for 42$ after my RZ. I wish the normal edition had a fun name like cat helmet edition or the scratched edition.

was his actually damaged? my limited edition disc works just fine, and only had a few cosmetic scratches.

I really should've just gotten the regular edition though.. the limited one feels so cheap, and you really don't get much more.

PrePlayed (Eastside - Madison) has a used Microsoft brand 360 wireless router adapter for $60. That is a fucking steal. It's under the glass with the 360 accessories.

Friend just passed an email off to me (he works at Shopko). If you sign up here: http://www.shopko.com/myfriends/ they'll apparantly send you a 20% coupon.

In the past they've done 20% off for employees only, and everything was fair game, so thats $100 off a PS3 if you're lookin for one.

Hollywood Video on Webster is 50% off new/used games. Pretty much picked over, but you never know.
Shopko has a pile of clearance games for PS2/XBox/GCN. Selection varies by store.
Got Mario Strikers Charged from Family Video on Webster this weekend, for $20 complete. Mario Party 5 for $8 complete. I didn't see any other copies, but you might watch for other Wii games dropping.

Thanks for the link, I signed up the other day, got my coupon emailed just now. Video games and hardware excluded, as well as movies. Hell, even food and pop are excluded. :roll:

Thanks for the coupon anyways.

Best CAG worthy deals on dress shirts is at TJ Max if you have one near Mad-town. $15-20 for name brand shirts that are reg price $40-60. Colors are extreme YMMV, though.
