I am the biggest failure ever.

I just came home from EB with my copy of LBP and my Kratos Sackboy code. I notice the sticker is on really firmly but I manage to get under it and peel it off, but in doing so the sticker rips off 2/3 of the code. So now I have spent the last 30 mins trying to peel little scraps of paper from the back of the sticker in hopes of getting the code. What should I do? I don't think the guys at EB will give me another code. Feel free to post facepalms and laugh at my epic fail.

LOL @ your EPIC FAIL!

Wow...that sucks. I'm not sure what you can do, but I'm surprised that an EB/GS is giving out the game already.

EB just called me and said they and my pre-order in, when I went there they had a whole shelf full of copies.

Well, let's look at it like this.  What sticker are you talking about?  Is it something that the company put on or EB put on or what?  If EB put it on there, then that means they are at fault for you losing your portion of the code...thereby they should end up replacing it.  If it's something that Sony/Media Molecule put on the thing, then it's a different story.

Honestly, I would just say this:  who cares?  It's a Sackboy.  =  /  Then again, I have no ambition for LBP, so maybe I'm not the person to respond.

I would call EB Games and at least ask them what's up and if they can help you at all.  =  /  Trying never hurts.

Those things are scratchy cards. But anyway, just call your local store, they should have a ton of them.

Finally I get confirmation that they will hand out the Kratos codes when you get the game!  I was worried mine would run out with the luck i have...does the card say anything about the other costumes and level pack???

The first card I got didn't, but it was probably printed before they announced the medusa and minotaur. The replacement card I got has all three of the God of War costumes on it and it mentions the level pack, too. I imagine either code will unlock everything, though.

They'll usually give you another code. Gamestop did it for me when my Resistance 2 beta code didn't work. Just call in and ask them to read you off another code.

I just got done playing for the last hour and am disappointed. I was never really impressed with the vids but all the player feed back made me want this game. I havent built any levels yet but the gameplay sucks. Rally when I have SMG sitting on the shelf why do I want to play this game? The gameplay is just not there. I bought his game off hype and player feedback, I will give it more time but as of now I will call this game over hyped.

Don't judge until you start creating... that's where the true power of this game is at.

Agreed that was fail on my part. But I got another Kratos code and a Resistance 2 beta key so I am pretty happy. Does anyone know when the servers are gonna come online?

Indeed it does. We might have created a legend here, one image to be used on GiantBomb every time we get the chance.
