    Right?! Two more hours before I can go pick it up.

    But the bright side... we can watch football and still have the rest of our day free on Sundays.

    You guys don't have to wake up @2:45AM to pre-order things. :/

    Fact.

    Though it does get dark at nearly 4:00 here once the time changes. Btw. Is that this weekend?

    Toss in New Year's Eve.

    I lived in the Far East and West Coast. Be grateful. Best weather out here, man! California love! My mind state is so laid back.

    I can't complain. It's a nice tradeoff. I'll gladly take 6 months of clouds and rain for 6 months of sun... which is pretty much what we've gotten the last few years.

    I came here from the deep south though... it's nice to have sunny summers without all the humidity and bugs.

    What!? That’s not a fair trade off. Lol You wake up, pre order and go back to sleep in 15 min. We get our phones a full 3 hours later!

    That is one of the best things about west coast. No matter what sport we don’t have to stay up late to finish a game!

    Don’t feel too bad. The other night UPS “end of day” was just before 10:00pm.

    You are totally right. Coming from the east coast (Philadelphia), people here are completely chill.

    I lived in Colorado Springs for my last three high school years (1996-1999) and know how crap weather can be in the Midwest. I experienced living in places with blizzards and typhoons. I love where I'm at. I love Cali.

    Actually had a good night sleep. Just five minutes ago, Best Buy just sent me an email that my phone is ready for pickup. Lovely morning...;)

    Same here... but it wasn't about a phone. It was about the new Call of Duty: World War II I am picking up after work.

    My worst fears are being played out here in my remote community in the PNW...great that my phone made it nearby to the mainland this morning, but I woke up to a dusting of snow, freezing temps, windchill of 17, gusts up to 38, and 50% chance of snow before 11 (which is when the plane lands with shipments.) Here's hoping there's an A+ pilot on today who can land safely in these dicey conditions.

    I was a bit shocked when I opened the weather app and it said rain/snow and 34 degrees. Welcome to winter in Seattle.

    I actually have a physical copy of CoD: Infinite War Fare still sealed. It came with my PS4 slim and it's inside a drawer.

    I grew up with the Japanese developers influence. Just not into FPS. I get dizzy. Had the first Halo and never beat it. I see those ads for CoD: WW2 and it graphically does look amazing though. ;)

    I'm going to turn 37 in a month, I'm kinda feeling that Mario Odyssey. Weird me. And I'm not a huge Nintendo fan anymore. PS fanboy here for 21 years. I go to Best Buy to actually check on the Switch more than the iPhone X.

    I need gaming to be portable because I'm barely at home.

    I’m in the same age group as you. I picked up a switch for Zelda, which was amazing. Last week I ended up getting Mario Odyssey. I have played it maybe 3 hours, but it’s truly masterful. One of the best games I have ever played.

    I’m not a gamer by any means, and the switch is the only Nintendo console I have owned since the N64 was released. I’m glad it’s around when I have a few minutes to spare.

    Heh... yeah I'm 43 and grew up under the same influence. I'm actually not a huge FPS fan either. I do however like the WW2 theme which is why I'm picking up this latest CoD. That and of course the zombie mode which is always amazingly fun. That and the single player campaign is what I play. I rarely play online... I just can't compete with those kiddos.

    The game does look awesome though... and I hope it's as good as World at War was back in the day.

    I'm also gonna check out the Switch today while I"m there. SMO looks interesting... just unsure if I want to pull the trigger. I bought CoD for my gaming PC (see my sig) and don't currently have a console although I do have the XBox One X coming later this month.

    Thanks for the info. Definitely considering the Switch.
