My wife wanted to check out the Surface Tablet and I couldn't resist Halo 4 with the free $25 gift card. They are having a release party sponsored by 343 and Microsoft. Swag, free food and prizes from what the employee told me. I think this is going to be my first midnight release. I'm not counting the time I camped out all night in front of Best Buy for a PS2.

What was your first midnight release you went to?

Niiiice. I lived in San Fran when it was released and didn't go to the one at the Sega store. I was a jackass.

Why? Is it because you can't get your license yet or are you not allowed out that late? I know it's on school night.

Never been and probably never will.
Unless they are giving away free awesome stuff!

My roommate and I went to go get Halo 3 from gamestop. We saw the line as we approached and were like "screw this", so we turned back and went home. That was the closest I've ever been to a midnight release.

Are you talking the MS Store in Bell Square? I pre-ordered from Best Buy on the other side of the 405, and have been waiting to see if 343 announced anything about a launch party.

First midnight release for me was Halo 2.

Borderlands (first) and Diablo 3 are the only two I've ever attended.

I'm just not cool enough to go to a midnight release. However I did live 3 min from a theater and saw a midnight release once after leaving the bar early.

Never done a midnight release. It just doesn't seem like a sensible thing to do.

Never been to a midnight release. I prefer to order my games online and have them delivered to my door.

Me too but all the free swag I can get sounds like it might be worth it.

That's it. Don't care to pick up a game at 12AM when I'm just going to come home and crash.
