Are you anxiously awaiting the release of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition? Better start calling all your local game stores, because according to a report from IGN certain stores have been selling the game early. Game Informer followed up this report by emailing around, eventually getting confirmation from a representative that the game was available in certain stores (though for some reason they didn't mention who they were a representative of). This happens from time to time, so take advantage of it if you can.
I called my local GameStop to ask about availability, and the employee scoffed at my question until I mentioned that other GameStop stores around the country were selling early. Still, he didn't seem keen on the idea, so be sure to call around before driving out to get a copy.
