[When we're looking for blogs on a specific topic, we'll put out a Bloggers Wanted call. Check out the blog prompt, write your own response in the Community Blogs and tag it with the "Bloggers Wanted Essay Response" tag, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page. -- JRo]
If you've been living under a rock, you might have missed that Modern Warfare 3 is releasing tomorrow. Pretty much every game store in the country is having a midnight launch for it, and there are reports from all over that people are already lined up outside Gamestops and Best Buys.
Now, I know a lot of you might have never attended a midnight launch or stood in line for three days in the cold just to make sure you got your hands on a game, but I think almost every gamer has a story of something extreme they did to acquire a game. Tell me your story: what game did you absolutely have to have, why did you need it so badly, and what did you have to do to make sure you buy a copy?
If you want to participate, just write a C Blog, title it "Acquisition: [Your Blog's Title]", and select the Bloggers Wanted Essay Response tag. Throughout the week, keep an eye on the blogs and get some discussions going with your fellow Dtoiders, and make sure you look for promoted blogs from last week's topic, MMO Stories.
