Regardless of how you feel about GameStop, you have to admit they have some pretty great promotions and incentives, like what they're doing for the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning midnight release. Three different stores will have special guests to help fans celebrate the new release.
In Bellingham, MA, Curt Schilling, Founder and Chairman of 38 Studios and R.A. Salvatore will be stopping by, while Todd McFarlane will be in Tempe, AZ. Finally, in Cockeysville, MD, Ken Rolston of Big Huge Games will be saying hello.
Since most cities have more than one GameStop, be sure to call in and check which store will be hosting these big names. If this isn't an amazing reason to go buy a game, I don't know what is. Go forth, and meet cool people!
