PostSubject: Gamestop holding midnight opening for "Halo Wars'   Fri Feb 27, 2009 10:07 pm

According to a document on its Web site, thousands of Gamestop stores across the nation are holding midnight launches for Halo Wars. Like many of you, I'm impressed with what Ensemble Studios has done in terms of creating a real-time strategy control scheme for a console. If my frickin' defective Xbox 360 was working properly, I'd be playing more of it. That said, I can understand a midnight launch for a mainline Halo game, but a spin-off? I'm not convinced the demand is there. I envision thousands of stores having a dozen or so customers lined up at midnight.

How about you? Will you be lining up at Gamestop for a chance to get Halo Wars as soon as possible? Do you think the game is big enough that it warrants a midnight launch?




Now, I plan on eventually owning Halo Wars. Is it a Halo game wrapped around an RTS? Or an RTS wrapped around a Halo game? Something to ponder...

Please Note: this is ONLY an xbox 360 game

I hope they do a good job with online gaming, and give the player the freedom that they have with most online PC games.

I don't think anyone in our clan has it yet. And I personally don't want to buy it. At least not now, so someone else get it and tell us what you think. Oh, and there's a demo available on the Xbox marketplace. So someone could do that. Not me. My hard drive is full of useless demos that I don't care about but still don't want to delete...
