I just wanted to briefly (lol, I can’t even keep a straight face saying I’m going to be brief, anymore) mention a few thoughts Cassie and I had on doing something fun for the release of Wrath of the Lich King.
I’ve called to check, and the Gamestop store that Cassie and I normally go to is holding a midnight release party on Wednesday, November 12th.
The one we go to is in Maplewood, Gamestop #531 (next to Circuit City), part of the Maplewood Mall loop, close to TGI Fridays and Buffalo Wild Wings.
I talked to the guy there yesterday very briefly, just to kind of touch base and see if they were kind of excited about the release, and possibly open to idiots like me coming out for a meet and greet and stuff like that.
The fellow I talked to was not only really nice and cheerful, but seemed genuinely excited at having the pre-release midnight event going on.
So I’m kind of thinking it might be fun to pre-order our games (the non-CE versions) from that Gamestop, and then head on over there for the midnight release, hang out with other people excited to get their grubby little meathooks on Wrath, say hi to anyone that comes out. That kind of thing.
I was thinking that, for fun, I could try to come up with a variation of the BBB t-shirt image just for the release, and bring a bunch of one-of-a-kind buttons to give away to people that show up there.
So, for those of you that hang out in the Twin Cities, Minnesota area, anybody interested in something like that?
I know that most of you probably already pre-ordered from somewhere else. Sorry I’m so far behind the curve on this. What can I say? I still have a hard time thinking someone might want to meet me. After all, I know me. :)
