Monday was an adventure day for me and Justin. Anyone that knows us knows we love the Gears of War franchise. This Tuesday the fourth game in the Gears of War series, Judgment, was released. We had originally ordered the game online, but when we heard that the Microsoft store in Oakbrook was having a launch party and giving something away we had to go. So after work we headed to the mall to see if anyone was in line already, and they were not.
With 5 hours to kill we enjoyed dinner at Sbaro, went to Barnes and Noble, and had a Carmel Macchiato at Starbucks. Finally at 9:45 we headed to the store to stand outside for the 1 hour before it would re open. Lets just say with wind chill in the teens and snow falling it was a cold 1 hour. But guess who managed to be first in line?
This girl! A line of guys formed behind, but this gamer girl was first.
It was a pretty cool event. They had a tournament, which we entered and were bad at.
But it was fun none the less. They had pizza, which we had just had. They also had raffles and the first 50 people got this shirt:
All in all we had a great time and once the clock stuck 12 we picked up our game and headed home.
