I have been issued a challenge by Destiny....

Okay so for those of you who do not know how gamestop mid night premieres work, it is first come first serve. There are two types - ticket systems. For tickets, basically you go in earlier in the day and they give you a ticket. This ticket represents a group and that group will be served at said time. So for example if your group one, you get helped at exactly 12, but if you miss it, you have to wait all the way til the end. For first come first serve - it's pretty self explanatory. First people there get helped first. Some people start lining up like 2pm though so it's pretty die hard to be the "first". My GameStop in particular uses ticket systems. They have already began random lottery raffles for the first 10 tickets in group one. I unfortunately did not win one. HOWEVER - the general manager of the store held onto one and told me he will be hosting a Destiny dance off challenge 10 minutes before midnight to see who wins the last ticket in group one! So my goal is to win that ticket! I have to preform in front of him, the staff, and all the other people waiting for the game! Three other people have accepted his challenge so far and I will beat them! I will practice the Destiny dance every single day! Might even post a video or two of my "progress" for you guys to critique :). Edit: I have began watching and studying how exactly the Destiny dance looks on YouTube. It just got real for me! XD

    I find if you skip the dance but turn up with a shotgun you can bypass the ticketing system entirely and still leave with your dignity intact. Besides you know that ticket is going to the only girl in the queue, the one with the nice rack, tight t-shirt and pixie cut hair, who is just accompanying her boyfriend. Why put yourself through that shit when it will only lead to disappointment.

    • Or you know...you could just preorder the digital guardian edition and not have to wait in line. Unless you have xbox, or got the ghost edition.

    • They are already providing tickets? That seems pretty early. My Gamestop doesn't start tickets until 6-ish the night of. It's always ran smoothly. In and out in 5min.

          • Watch the episode "The gang dances their asses off" from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Some good ideas in there.

              • I preordered on PSN to avoid that sort of thing. Once preloading is standard across the board, I may never step foot in Gamestop again.

                  • Exo and human dance is too hard stick with the awoken slide dance b/c it looks the easiest.

                  • Got the perfect dance, costume and song for you. 1. Buy the Flashdance costume online(if you don't already own it) 2. Play the song - Flashdance What a Feeling 3. Sit in a chair and have someone pour a bucket of ice water on you(kill 2 birds with 1 stone) and dance like Jennifer Beals It's a win/win scenario. If you don't win the dance, I would bet you would win for dressing up like that.

                    My GameStop just does long ass lines. But the trick is...to be last. They keep the games in the back and when midnight hits, They reverse the line because the end of the line is right by the door where the games are and they hand them out there :)
