Yeah, I got the free tickets, too. Movies in my area are $10.50, so I only had to pay $1 for two tickets. This was a really cool promotion for GameStop to do.
Technically worth it, but I heard the movie is only slightly better than its predecessor and heralds the coming of several more mediocre Spider-Man movies and spin-offs.
Since I really enjoyed the first ASM film, saying this one is "slightly better" is a good thing. As for setting up future films, Marvel Studios' films have been doing that from the start and it has produced incredibly positive results for them. Since Sony has decided to expand their Spider-Man movie franchise, why not plant some seeds to get people excited?
Apparently, it was pre-order only because, when I finally had the money to get my copy today, all i got was yet another GameStop already opened "new" game with an annoying sticker to remove. -_-
The free movie tickets weren't necessarily pre-order only, but they did say that there were very limited quantities available. The game came out almost two weeks ago at this point, so I'm not surprised that you didn't get them.
As for the open "new" games that GameStop is so famous for, those are the biggest pet peeve of mine. And that clear, circular sticker they use to "seal" the game when they sell it to you is horrid. Unless you peel it off right in the store (or stop them before they put it on), it leaves so much glue residue that only a healthy dose of Goo-Gone can get rid of it all. I always demand a discount when they try to pawn an open "new" game on me. My success rate is only about 50%, but it's better than just taking that crap without saying a word.
