I realized 3 AC games ago, that if you wait 2 months to pick them up they are usually $30 cheaper

Tough titty, get to work!I'm pretty sure that Frankenstorm is little more than "a widdow wain". Keep in mind that at least 200 counties in the U.S. have already lost all forms of power, and there are sections of Delaware and New Jersey that have already flooded over, much like New Orleans during Katrina. Already, Sandy has claimed over a billion dollars in damages, and there are thousands of people who are now trapped in Atlantic City thanks to the stupidity of government officials who did not take the storm seriously. Already there are places in the East Coast that are receiving record snowfall, with winds bustling up to 100 mph in others. This is some serious business, and Gamestop was right in cancelling its midnight premiere of AC 3.

I know i wouldn't risk my employees lives just for some gamers to get their games in time of release and to expect someone to do so is just crazy

I wonder if it's completable without a Kinect.
