I am! is it 3am yet?
#2 Posted by DonChipotle (2657 posts) -

Nah, I'll just get it when I wake up at 7 A.M. Like I do for any XBLA game I want. Less hassle AND I'll be in better condition to play it.

#3 Posted by NickM (1067 posts) -

It'll come out at like, midday tomorrow where I live, so no need for me to do that.

#4 Edited by JacobForrest (307 posts) -

Yup, I am. It'll be as exciting as the AoC launch, except without the sinking disappointment.

#5 Edited by Damian (1538 posts) -

If I can grab the points for it today, then I will playing a few hours tonight. If not, I'll probably just tease myself with the demo until tomorrow.

i want to but I should also get on a normal sleep schedule for college classes next week...
 
nah, I'll stay up

#7 Posted by NickM (1067 posts) -

BTW, does anyone know the exact time it'll launch in the UK? Thanks.

What´s the "official" launch hour? Is there any?

#9 Posted by ShadowKiller (894 posts) -

Shadow Complex looks awesome but I have other things in mind to buy and my Wal Mart usually only gets 1 or 2 point cards in every 2 months.

#10 Posted by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

Nope. No point in playing a game if I'm fighting fatigue. I'll wait till tomorrow.

depends on where you live. im pretty sure though that XBL updates at 12am on the west coast.

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.

#14 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

I'm staying up.

#15 Posted by Origina1Penguin (3500 posts) -

No, I have work tomorrow.  Wait a sec... if I go to bed now, I'm already getting less than 7 hours of sleep.  I gotta get out of here!

You sir, have read my mind.   :P
 
I have been trying to suppress my hype for this game but I can't do it anymore. Got to wait up! lol.
#17 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3537 posts) -

Is this game really that good? I keep hearing about it like it's the second coming of Jesus or something along those lines.

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!
#19 Posted by Tharrington (117 posts) -

I will either stay up late or wake up extremely early.  I have yet to decide.

#20 Posted by Jackel2072 (2226 posts) -
#21 Posted by damnboyadvance (4054 posts) -

Yup, I will! I'm staying up until at least 2:30. Yet it doesn't matter when I go to sleep because I always end up waking up late.

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.
#23 Posted by TheGremp (2064 posts) -

Well, it has nothing to do with Shadow Complex seeing as my 360 is busted, but yes.  Mostly caused by my insomnia, though.

#24 Posted by Discorsi (1390 posts) -

umm sign me up.  I WANTS ME SOME SHADOW COMPLEX NAO

#25 Posted by BryanDaGimp (35 posts) -

I work at 930 tomorrow morning, but I'm still staying up for it.

#26 Posted by pause422 (6153 posts) -

I'm naturally awake and moving at that time cuz of my current work schedule, so I'm definitely getting it tonight.

#27 Posted by Psynapse (1064 posts) -

#29 Posted by kerikxi (527 posts) -

Yeah, I'm awake anyway, so I'm just gonna check every half hour or so.

Doesn't new stuff typically show up on the marketplace at 2am Pacific time?

I believe so.
#32 Edited by JacobForrest (307 posts) -
@MB: Well, it's 12:00 PST now and it's not there, so you could be right.
 
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.

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.

That'd be about two hours from now, I think?
#35 Posted by MB (11302 posts) -
@kerikxi: Yeah it's now 12:11am Pacific.

#36 Posted by Rasgueado (702 posts) -

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.

#37 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

I'm too tired to stay up much longer. I'll download it tomorrow after a good nights sleep.

#38 Posted by RyShe (110 posts) -

I work at 8:30 tomorrow (it's currently 2:23) and I will have no free time after work, so I'm staying up and will have to grab a 5 hour energy tommorow.

I'm like 90% sure that I've purchased a new arcade game prior to 1am PST

I remember purchasing the first episode of Penny Arcade, at midnight.

Sometimes stuff comes out early. I remember seeing the Gears 2 All Fronts Pack early, and for only 800 points.
#42 Posted by SketchyBrown (180 posts) -

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

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

4 hours is plenty. It's just class :P
 
Listening to today's bombcast while waiting here, pretty brutal since they've spent the first twenty minutes talking about playing the game :(
#45 Posted by Hannibal (862 posts) -

Not only that, but they totally had spoilers in the podcast. They said we go up a hill! I didn't wanna know that!

#46 Posted by Artie (688 posts) -

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.
