Well, at about 10:45 pm thursday I will jump in my car, drive 35 miles to Gamestop, wait till midnight, pick up my copy along with the limited edition guide, go across the parking lot to Wal-Mart to buy some energy drinks, drive another 35 miles back home, rip some plastic, insert game in ps3 and press the X button.
Buy the refreshments first , saves time.
But I have a question.
On the Playstation blog, it was confirmed that the digital download would be a day one midnight release
But when I chec on the PSN Store, it says the game will be available to download at 12:01 PST
That's 3:01 Eastern. So does this mean there's actually not a midnight release for those on the East Coast?
I live in California and my local Target has the game for sale today. I haven't checked any other stores. I have the Survival Edition on order from Amazon so I didn't pick it up but it is worth checking out if you want it early
I'm going to be sitting on the doorstep on Friday attached to my lead (its for the mailmans safety) and just sit patiently till I see that glorious man in his Red uniform come to my doorstop and hand me over Last Of Us.
My girlfriend is buying it for me, so she'll pick it up from Gamestop on her way home from work. Ill come over in time to eat dinner with her, and then tactfully bid her goodnight.
Once im home in front of the TV, ill take the plastic wrap off, and study every milieter of the packaging and manual. Next, ill equip my Sony Pulse headset and begin the game on Normal.
Cant wait to just take in the atmosphere, story, graphics, et al.
I plan to not touch the MP until I know (from playing SP) if I want to rep the Fireflies or Hunters. Once I have come to a decision, I will be playing lots of Custom games as a way of taking a break from SP, only if necessary.
Only 4 more night my friends.
Gotta update this..so hype
My girlfriend is a genius and actually paid for the preorder in MY name, so I can pick it up myself:
Friday morning my Gamestop opens at 10am (no midnight release). No work on Friday, which means Ill wake up around 9, wash my face, and eat some yogurt. Then, Ill take 50 mg Vyvanse (prescription, of course )
Ill get to Gamestop at about 9:56am, and pick up my copy of the game as soon as the store opens.
At the first red light I hit, ill take the plastic wrap of and begin pouring over every detail of the packaging. When I get home, ill sit in front of the TV, put my Sony Pulse headset on, and insert the disc. I will play on Normal, and i plan to spend most of the day playing the game.
Throughout the day ill be dirnking lots of water (healthy and the pee stops break up the game nicely). I also grabbed a Bolthouse Farm veggie smoothie (5 servings of vegetables!) and some way over-priced and delicious Acai Blueberry fruit juice. I dont have much of an apptite for solid food on Vyvanse.
For later in the day, I bought a "pick your own 6 pack" of beer with different craft beers. Looking forward to that. Its possible I may have something green and sticky too, but its too early to tell.
Best part is, my girlfriend is having dinner with her friend, and her friends boyfriend is also gonna be playing the last of us all night. So now the girlfriend will be doing her own thing happy as can be, and ill have a night to myself with TLoU.
Say NO to paid DLC maps
