No. It is a policy of mine to expend as little of my time (which has a cost) as possible on purchasing items. As I like to say, "I should never work to give away my money."

So if I were standing in line at midnight Blizzard would have to be paying me.

i used to love working at futureshop to watch all the WoW nerds wait in line starting at midnight to line up for the game. SOOOOOO funny. We didn't even sell out of the game cause of how many copies we had. I don't get this obsession with playing a video game that badly.

It's one thing to line up for the regular version (which can be purchased digitally) but it's another to line up for the Collector's Edition. It's certainly better than waiting for it to come in the mail.

I know a friend of mine wants to go to the London launch. For me it's a bit far for a game I'm not interested much in.

No ..

They messed up SC2 by removing lan support and totally messing up the
game IMO. That's what made SC so popular in the first place.
I'll pass on this one, Blizzard should have kept it similar to SC. They only
should have add better graphics, eye candy and leave in the lan stuff
in.

No, pre-ordered online and it'll come to my door in the morning of release day. Will be installing away while there's people still in queues at game shops miles away from their homes :)

No. If I can't get a digital copy online I'll grab it the next morning at Wal-Mart.

The one time this year I'll stand out is when I pick up my Cataclysm collectors edition.

As far as starcraft 2?

I'm so poor right now I'm debating on it. :(

Even IF I wanted it, I might wait for the Protoss campaign.

Ha!

Already have it!!

Not a gamer at all, but got it for a friend.

To stand in line ANYWHERE for ANYTHING (except a concert or amusement park) waiting for the place to open is absolutely dumb, IMO!!

HELL YES. FREE SWAG! Thanks Anaron for the heads up (Y). I was looking forward to the Midnight Release @ Gamestop/EB... but I get more stuff @ FS. Too bad BB has nothing.
