Who is staying up tonight?
i would wait up but i think i would die from sleep deprivation if i waited for the PC version to release. Maybe if there was a boxed copy of this game i would pick it up for 360 but other wise i'm just waiting for the PC release. If there ever is one.
GT review for any one who cares.
" What time do XBLA games normally come out at on PST? I thought it was Midnight but I think there have been instances where it was later. If it is midnight PST then I will cause that's only 1am for me! "
I live on the west coast and usually I can get my Rock Band DLC a little after 3 am. I don't think I have ever stayed up to buy an arcade game before but I assume that the entire marketplace updates at the same time as the Rock Band tracks. So I would put my guess at a little after 4 am for you. Again, just speculating here.
Guess I'll be staying up for another 2 hours...
edit: I've been searching around the internet, some say 1:00 AM and others say 2:00 AM PST. Eh, we'll just have to see.
" @MB said:I remember plenty of times new stuff coming out 3am Est actually. I could be completely mistaken somehow I suppose, but I'm pretty sure as its happened a good amount of times I'm on this work schedule." Doesn't new stuff typically show up on the marketplace at 2am Pacific time? "I believe so. "
I've usually noticed updates at around 1:00am myself. Though... now it will be hard to say if I'll get to play it at all since I keep getting red ring and E71/E79 errors when the machine boots up.
You cannot see my face... but it is not an ecstatic expression.
" @Asurastrike said:I remember purchasing the first episode of Penny Arcade, at midnight." @MB said:I'm like 90% sure that I've purchased a new arcade game prior to 1am PST "" Doesn't new stuff typically show up on the marketplace at 2am Pacific time? "I believe so. "
" @Asurastrike said:Sometimes stuff comes out early. I remember seeing the Gears 2 All Fronts Pack early, and for only 800 points." @MB said:I'm like 90% sure that I've purchased a new arcade game prior to 1am PST "" Doesn't new stuff typically show up on the marketplace at 2am Pacific time? "I believe so. "
Sort of! I decided to sleep all day yesterday to try and quell the anticipation of the game... I just woke up 1/2 hour ago at 3am EST... but it looks like I've still got some time to wait for it to go up... I'll be watching this thread : D
" Yup, I am. It'll be as exciting as the AoC launch, except without the sinking disappointment. "Zingggg
I was thinking about it but I'm about to go to bed. If I stayed up and got it and played it would be 5 am before I went to bed. I'd have to get up for class 4 hours later :S
" @JacobForrest said:4 hours is plenty. It's just class :P" Yup, I am. It'll be as exciting as the AoC launch, except without the sinking disappointment. "Zingggg I was thinking about it but I'm about to go to bed. If I stayed up and got it and played it would be 5 am before I went to bed. I'd have to get up for class 4 hours later :S "
Listening to today's bombcast while waiting here, pretty brutal since they've spent the first twenty minutes talking about playing the game :(
Oh my god I hate this game.
I live on the east coast, so staying up for a release is a big investment. It was 1:30am and I thought "well I could make it another hour and a half and play it for a half hour." 4am is the cut off point though, since I have to go to work tomorrow at 7. Well now its 3:42am and the game still isn't up. They've had virtually every review go up already, but they can't flip the switch that switches the preview video into the full game? Its not that difficult. And I've basically wasted this time when I could've been sleeping.
Still probably going to get it, but never staying up for a release ever again since for all I know it could be uploaded at noon.
