IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

Postby thebrowncloud » Mon Jul 19, 2010 11:59 pm

With only a week left before the magical day, I thought we'd have a little poll for fun on how people are going to be getting their copy, if they plan to at all. For those of you getting a copy, what is the first thing you are gonna do? Start up the single-player campaign? Jump into multiplayer? mess around with the editor? Perhaps try out some of the challenges to learn what Blizzard's idea of a tutorial for competitive play is? Or something else? I'm sure you guys know what I'm gonna do.  :D

What's kinda lame for me, though, is that the GameStop I pre-ordered my copy at isn't sure yet if they are doing a midnight release because they are in a mall and have to pay security. If they do decide to have one (which I will be finding out today), I will certainly be at it and racing home at unreasonable speeds to play until I pass out at my desk.

I'll buy their game if they can restore my confidence in them.

Well, I've got that online client on the run.  But I'll wait a few days before I go buy my hard copy.  I'm only interested in the serial codes and it takes a while before it ever gets here in Brazil.  ;)

I've got the Collector's Edition preordered, but I don't think it's going to get here until a couple days later.  I can wait.

I'll surely get a copy some time after its release. It's not like I have that much time in the next weeks to play it, so I will await a bit, then get it.

I pre-ordered at GameStop to get a Beta Key but no GameStop in Pensacola will have a midnight release so I'm canceling and getting it at Walmart.

I'm torn between the single player campaign and trying against the AI for Achievements.
After i get home it's prayer time, got to talk to Dad every day.
My former wife has a doctors appointment and my daughter has work (I have to drive them both), but other than that it's non stop StarCraft II till I drop.

I'm just going to head to the store and buy my copy when it's out.  No biggie.
I have seen the Desler.  I have tasted of his milk and honey.
