Would people really queue up 3 hours before midnight launch? I'v never been to a midnight release so wouldn't know.

If you show up a couple of days before the release, actually just go now, start standing in line, then you can get the game first after a couple of days ;)

Yes, Because you have to finalize your sale receipt first..

3 hours just seems like a really long time to wait In line. But If It get's you at the head of the queue then fair enough! Take some food with you.

Really?! Doesn't that defeat the purpose of going to a midnight launch?. I take It ordering online wasn't an option. Call In sick. Tell the boss you have diarrhoea. Happy days.

I've always shown up about an hour or so early just in case but this game is going to be bigger than the last ones so I'm not so sure. I'll probably just show up at 10:30 or 11 again. Usually the line shows up within 10 or 15 minutes before launch but it might form a little earlier this year. That's just how it is for me here anyway.

That is what I did last year and glad that I did. Line was huge last year where I live but there were 3 games for the midnight release. Not sure If ACIII is the only game slated to launch Tuesday. Best to arrive early anyway.

I showed up about an hour before for ACR and was about the tenth or so person in line of about 30, but I live in a pretty small college town and it was during finals so... I don't think I'll show up more than two hours early this time around, just because it's the last hu-rah. You could always ask the store for advice, since they will have the pre-order number, and they can give you a rough estimate based on other midnight launches :3

So is 9 AM a generally good time to pick the game, or will there still be a long line up during this time?

I envy all you people who don't have a ****ing hurricane coming to you at just the perfect time to ruin your pick up day

Well then maybe you shouldn't have won the Revolution and you wouldn't be IN THE WAY OF A HURRICANE. But then I guess we wouldn't have this game. My logic Is flawed -_-

^^ lol. I love baking cupcakes, and I was in school for nursing before I switched. When I got on xbox I always fancied being a 'cupcake nurse' since the real people version thing didn't work out xD! Plus, sweets is the best medicine for any ailment ^~^

Well I live in a place where no one has heard of us haha. I'll be heading out to my local Gamestop after my class is done at around 5:50pm Pacific and be waiting there. Sure I'll look like a moron with my hidden blade, but I don't care. :)
