Go to GameStop, get Brutal Legend at midnight

GameStopIf you want to be one of the first to play Brutal Legend, you’ll need to get yourself to GameStop on Monday night as participating shops across the US will be opening at midnight to allow enthusiasts to get their hands on Brutal Legend before anyone else — not that you’ll be waiting that long for the postman on Tuesday morning if you’ve pre-ordered!

Hubble Space Telescope-eyed reader Mykal has spotted a PDF on GameStop’s site indicating which specific shops will be opening at midnight, so be sure to check that before you sit yourself down on the pavement.

If anyone knows of similar promotions in other countries, please leave a comment. I know the UK’s GameStation is known to do this kind of thing, but I’ve not heard any word on whether or not it’s doing it for Brutal Legend‘s European release on October 16th .

Yea not in all areas was why I was looking. Damn thing isn’t in my area. Denton and Frisco, but no not Dallas or Fort Worth.

It isn’t Hubble Space Telescope-eyes that found it but http://kotaku.com/people/Xaxir/ Xaxir (who seems to be an employee at Gamestop) posted it in the comment of the article that first voiced about it on Kotaku. I simply reposted the info.

Did not expect that to happen with The Metal being in demo of Guitar Hero 3:Legends of rock and said game.

This is awesome, but, I am guess Brutal Legend is only getting a midnight release because Uncharted 2 just happens to be releasing the same day. I think I might be one of the only people who preordered Brutal Legend at my Gamestop, I got a friend who works there and have been meaning to ask him.

Sadly, we dont get the midnight release where I live. On the postive side tho, my friend is saving me all the Brutal Legend promo material and posters and stuff and is gonna give it all to me on release day!

Can I pick my game up at a Gamestop that isn’t the one I ordered it at?

Cause the exact one isn’t on that list, but an acceptably nearby one is.
