Looks like it's back to Borderlands 2 until Wednesday! Anyone else's get canceled, or will you be enjoying AC3 tonight.

You made me call to make sure of this. When I did he told me as long as there is power it's still going to happen at Gamestop at least. So please for the love of god power please stay on.

I think you'll survive if you have to wait a little longer to get a video game.

Makes perfect sense. Don't fight hurricanes, you can't win.

#5 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

For me I'm right next to gamestop because I'm at work anyways so it's not to hard getting there. But I like the midnight releases because I like to be social with the people there since it's easy to talk to them for obvious reasons of us all being gamers.

Who the fuck attends a midnight release in a hurricane?

#7 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3805 posts) -

Desmond would take that hurricane to school.

I hate midnight releases because they remind me how fucking annoying the average gamer is.

I'm too hipster for midnight releases.

And smelly. It's not like deodorant is expensive.

PLEASE DON'T RISK YOUR LIFE DOING ANYTHING STUPID FOR A VIDEO GAME. STAY INSIDE AND BE SAFE.

Hahahahaha, thankfully I have a PC and will just download it toni..... what? Ubisoft delayed it? No, this can't be...

But yeah going to midnight releases are just annoying to me.

Clearly this Hurricane is a tactic by The Templars. They don't want you to buy Assassin's Creed 3!

I wouldn't call the PC version "delayed"  
It's just Ubisoft being themselves and releasing the game on PC almost a month later, nothing new there. Sadly they don't care that much about PC gamers for some reason. 
Maybe because everyone else forced them to get rid of their DRM and they said "Fine, fuck it, we'll do it for Assassin's Creed 3" so now they're just scared of what might happen when those angry kids figure out that there's another kind of DRM on it :P

People with their priorities in order, duh.

My copy hasn't been shipped yet. They usually arrive on release day, so I'm going to do what everyone is doing and blame the Hurricane.

Another member posted this a few days ago and I feel like it has to be brought up again just for the laughs (it was the first time I've seen it):

GameSpy: So when's the PC release date?

Ubisoft PR: October 30th.

GameSpy: Yeah, but when's the real PC release date?

Ubisoft PR: It's October 30th.

GameSpy: Uh huh. And can you say that with a straight face?

Ubisoft PR: You can ask me as many times as you like, but the answer will be the same.

GameSpy: Very well, let's move on. So, when will you announce the delay of the PC version?

Ubisoft PR: ...

I haven't read that before but that made me laugh. 
It's just that at this point they might call it a delay but it's not, it's just how it works. 
It's been that way for all the other AC games so it's to be expected :P

It was a text interview I think. If they asked it in person and had it on video I'd probably never stop watching it. But as far as I know, yes, that did actually happen.

Yeah I understand, I'm not mad about the "delay" or anything. Everyone saw it coming lol.

#25 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

don't do anything crazy.

i work at a grocery store. for some reason we are still opened. taco bell closed because of the hurricane. taco bell is like right next door to it. we're just going to be getting wind it looks like.

#26 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

I called to make sure gamestop had a midnight release and said if the power is on then it's still going to happen. Got off work and the power was on right there but they were closed anyways. Thanks a lot gamestop.

Sounds like the higher ups canceled them across the region. Probably wasn't the store people.

I came in this thread to call you a piece of shit for spelling cancelled wrong, and then I looked it up and found that I've always spelled it the British way, and you were totally right.

Anyways you guys are too down on midnight releases, as a nocturnal lizard person, not having a midnight release is basically like releasing your game a full day later to me.

#30 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

ahh, you may be right. I hope that it's open today for me to get it. Or maybe I'll just break in and get it since I already have it payed off so it's not stealing, just breaking and entering.
