This is a dream come true. My favorite game vendor and g1 nostalgia put together. Now I'm glad I held off on pre ordering at Gamestop. :D

That "exclusive" is already available as a Gamestop pre-order bonus of any version of the game. Buying it on Steam digitally for the PC users is... ok? But you'd get the Steam version anyway by buying the PC version any place else as a physical copy.

I guess if you refuse to buy from Game-stop, this might be nice.

Is it good for PC games? For some reason I didn't think so since Gamestop is rather suck-tastic when it comes to having PC games.

With Impulse, Origin, and Steam around, Gamestop doesn't make much money on PC releases so they don't devote much shelf space to it. But if you pre-order a PC version of something, then they will have it on release day.

I stopped in my Gamestop today. The two guys who worked there were unsure if PC gamers would get the perk. Apparently they've seen PC gamers get shafted in the past for releases like this (where there is both a console and PC version). And because the code isn't given until pick up, instead of being printed on the pre-order receipt, they recommended going the safe route of Steam.

Kinda sucks. I'd prefer a disk, but I'd really like those skins/guns too. Glad they were at least honest about it and didn't just say "yeah, hey, you'll get them" because I know taking pre-orders looks good on their monthly grade, having worked at a Gamestop once myself.
