hey anyone that picked up their copy of halo3 from walmart... are the "dog tags" that we were supposed to get last night worth going back and getting? the girl handing out the game last night said she couldn't find them to come back today because she knew they had gotten them in she just couldn't find them that the manager must of hidden them or something

Was at the Butterfield Best Buy in Illinois, they had a chick there passing out GTA4 shirts. Got a white and a black one as well. She was trying to get rid of her supply so they could get out of there. Also 2 GTA4 posters that look pretty nice as well. In the store got the shirt. They were only giving you a choice of the shirt or the hat at this store. They only had 25 chairs and it was for the first 25 people, did not have to buy a specific edition. Missed it by about 6 people. I had gotten there at about 10:15. They had 30 of the legendary and after I had left there were probably about 10 left, considering there were about 200 people there they were SOLD OUT for sure of those.
Overall they handled everything pretty well.

went to ebgames release in the prudential.
they did pretty well for pre-order customers.
they failed miserably with those that were going to buy it that night.
once you got inside the store to buy the game, you were rung up
at another counter, given a receipt, and then told to go back to the line and wait.
not once did an ebgame sloth walk down the waiting line telling those w/o preorders what to expect. zero logic applied last night by the ebgame staff.

What is the difference between collectors and normal? Is it worth another 10$. I got the bestbuy coupon and am going to get two copies (knock on wood) today. I can't wait for tonight. I wonder how many people are calling in sick. In fact I'm curious how much lost productivity the world we see becasue of halo 3.

I love the specious guide that came with the collectors’ edition. That and the Bonus DVD and tin case made it well worth the $75 dollars after tax.

I made the mistake of going to Gamecrazy last night around 11:30pm to pick up my reserved copy. Walked in and found that they where handing out numbers. I swam through a wave of stinky, loud, teens and got number 44. Waited in my car until I started seeing people leave. Went back in and waited for a very long 30 minutes until I realized that they where only on #11. The line was moving extremely slow. I said to myself screw this I don’t care if I already have money down I will use it for another game. Went into my local Wal-Mart that was on the way home and found no line, had the game in 5 minutes. No waiting and got my set of dog tags. By 12:39 I was playing The dog tags are alright, my only real complaint is that at the bottom they are engraved with the Wal-Mart Logo. I do not advertise for Wal-Mart

When in doubt use the spoiler tag "[$poiler] Spoiler text [/spoiler]"

I'm at work, and my paid copy is waiting for me at Gamestop. I can't get a damn thing done around the office.

I had an elderly indian gentleman sing pop music karaoke at me until I gave him my spot in line. That stuff is brutal.
