Posting again for the new 100 post page (Sorry guys, this will be the last post of this type):

Nintendo World Store Trip Details:

Address: 10 Rockefeller Plaza.
Store opens at 11 AM. We should try and reach by 10.45, in case there is a crowd.

Closest Subway Stations:
B, D, F, V (Corner of 48th and 6th Ave.)
E, V (53rd and 5th Ave.)

Where to meet:
PRONTO PIZZA: 32 W 48th Street.
Its between Scott's Food Court and Plaza Arcade and has a Green awning.
Here is a photo so that you can recognize it better.

How to Co-ordinate:
If everyone would send me a PM with their phone numbers and contact email which they check most frequently, and thus WILL check this evening, I will send an email to everyone with all the contact details. Do it ASAP please. That way even if we are late, we can stay in touch and coordinate. If you dont want to do so, thats fine as well.

Updated list:

It would be nice to have a bunch of Gaffers there. Let me know if I should add (or remove) your name to the list.

I'm amazed Futureshop here has Scribblenauts in stock and says it's on the shelf, so I will be going on my lunch to see if I can pick it up

It would be great if I could get it.

Lucky. I work retail in the states. Which means when I work, I have it inches from me. I've held the box in my hands, but I can't buy it till Tuesday because of the street date...

;_;

Just an FYI, yes Future Shop got the game in stock, but the boxes are marked "Street Dated for September 15," so it is unlikely they will sell it. (Although it is not streetdated in their computer, which is how some people were able to purchase it)

Well I went to Futureshop and they said that the box was street dated but on the computer it wasn't so they sold the game to me

I now own Scribblenauts and if you guys want I'll post a picture of it when I get home from work tonight.

I am gonna try it later tonight when it gets slower.

I don't know what to tell you but I'm not sure why they sold me the game and I am willing to provide picture proof once I get home if need be.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure GameStop never does (at least officially, who knows what shady employees do), but it sounds like a few smaller places in NYC and Canada did it. I managed to resist the urge to waste a ton of gas money today in an effort to get it. If I waited this long, I can wait a couple of days more. :)

Yeah Absolutely, I don't think that Gamestop / EBgames would let the game out early but I can fully understand what you mean.

No reason to apologize, it was just a miscommunication.

Future Shop is the largest electronics retailer in Canada. Think of the equivalent of Best Buy. I'm kind of surprised they've broken street date on this.

Do you live in the UK? Future Shop is only in Canada while GameCrazy is only in the US. My cousin was visiting from London and apparently they don't really have these crazy mega electronics stores where they sell everything there so I showed him Future Shop >.>

SCRIBBZ!

I was able to drive miles out of my way and pick this lil guy up at a local independent shop. I already have one on reserve (HAD to get the rooster hat) so I'll end up giving that copy to a friend. Unfortunately, I'm heading out to watch a football game right now, but I'll have a chance to play later tonight. Thanks for the title, Jackson.

Alright. I have it all squared away. I might be there a little early. If I don't go the time I have planned, I'll be a little late.

See you guys tomorrow :)

AHH! I work at a gamestop too and I drove to about 12 other stores wanting that damn game! I can't wait. Only thing I got was to hold it, and it sure did feel good. Monday the rooster hats are to be in store, and im totally getting that!

I also asked walmart and they said they wouldn't be carrying it, so midnight I will not be getting it. DARN!

Anyone else have any luck with getting their hands on one of these? I wana know if you can wear braces in the game :)

I'm kinda surprised. This is a rather niche title, I don't expect it to sell much. However the family ad was nice, and I can see this being fun for the whole family. Having said so the best they could come up with is Gamespot's "One of the most original games we've seen"???

How does this appeal to family and casual market is a mystery to me.

Sent everyone who PM'd me an email... with my contact info as well as everyone else's phone numbers and email. I wont have my email on my phone, so call me if you get lost and need directions to the Nintendo World Store (or to the nearest bar.)

I will be the one wearing blue jeans and a t-shirt with a crazy caption (i'm rich, marry me) and looks hungover as fuck.

Now time to sleep for 4 hours. Ugh.

I may or may not go to the Nintendo World Event. Will depend on whether I can get my ass up, mostly. It is awfully late (or early, depending on your point of view) now.

We'll see if I can make it.

It's 6 in the morning in NYC. I'm wasted, tired, and as an insomniac, can't go to sleep. If I can make it, so can you!!

Do it for Maxwell lol!!

Had to get up mad early to drive my girlfriend to the airport, will be monitoring this thread regularly to see all of the launchy goodness. Also, SCREW ALL OF YOU THAT ALREADY HAVE LEGITIMATE COPIES OF THE GAME. I mean, screw pirates too, but I can't get any stores to give one up for me :'(

Need some help here gaffers!

So I write sea, then I write shark, and the shark starts swimming in the sea. All is well.

Then I did my best to electrocute the shark. Toaster didn't work, so I wrote electric cable. Then I wrote generator. I stuck one end of the cable onto the generator, and the other onto the shark. But still nothing would happen.

Any idea how I would get some power going through the generator?

Just dropped a car battery in there and it did the trick. Still though, a shark can take a lot of shocks before dying.
