I wish we were going to the same place! Cookies!

Gerrr... I still have to wait 16 hours...

PC now hooked up to my TV. I'm planning on plugging in the wired 360 controller and pretending I'm playing the uber console version. Co-worker just called me reminding me we have tomorrow off for Veterans Day. This weekend is sooo blown.

Let me know when/if "Mom's Irregulars" happens in Mechwarrior Online, and I'll join.

Meanwhile, my copy of Skyrim still hasn't shipped, and I'm starting to think that I should have preordered via Steam rather than Amazon.

I'm gonna do the same thing.

I can't believe I let you guys enable me on this. My pile is super pissed at y'all.

Stupid Australian VPN service had to cancel their stupid free trial to try and get me to pay 10 stupid dollars to sign up for a month. Bah. 3.5 hours left. Be strong, Monty, be strong.

Still hasn't shipped here. Do not doubt Amazon. They will come through.

So saying: 8:30pm EST, and it just shipped.

Better strength than a Steamban.

Just got my email. All these pics from the Steam version are making me jealous. I'll probably sit by the window tomorrow and ambush my mailman.

Usually works the other way round (Aussies paying for overseas VPN services)

Skyrims probably confused the hell outta them

'we got customers!! No I'm serious! For the love of god, get some money outta them!!!!'

I don't know where you're getting that from. The trouble I've run into the VPN services is at one point Valve thought my account was being hacked, but they were cool once they realized I was an American living in HK/China. As far as I know, they only care about IP address insofar as payment is concerned.

I'm at GameStop because we can get our tickets at 9 and then come back around 12 to pick up the game. There is a shirtless guy with his chest painted and a sword and shield at the front of the line. I feel embarrassed by association.

During the DA2 release, the Steam Forums had a post or set of posts regarding this, and the official statement (as I recall) was that using a VPN or proxy to bypass release date restrictions would result in a ban. I'd dig up a link to cite, but the forums are obviously kaput.

Steam says that I can play it now....
was nice knowing you guys!!!

You too, sir!
My game is also ready to play, therefore farewell fellow Goodjers. It was nice knowing you, too.

Right, so everyone in the third-world countries has it. Now we're just waiting for it to hit the promised land.

I am so afraid of this. Fortunately, nobody here knows me. And hell, if someone I know is there, I'll just make fun of them.

I don't have it. I currently live in a developing country. I feel jipped

I'm home now. I guess there is a costume contest but that guy is disqualified because you can't have weapons or masks. There was a cute girl in line talking about how she worked at some sex shop, so at least that was distracting.

Well, no shipping status on my order and its 918PM. Guess I'll cancel and buy from Steam. I don't need to play at midnight, I just want it before the weekend!

Give it time, perhaps. Amazon has never missed a release-day release that I've seen.

[SSH. I didn't comment here.]

Yeah, tried to cancel and Amazon said no, it is marked as "left warehouse" which is weird since it stills says not shipped. Plus this guy said:

"Jose David:Items can't be shipped before they're released. It's always been like that. We use express delivery and local carrier delivery in these cases so that you can get the item the same day."

So you guys that have it as shipped status, Amazon is lying to you!

9:02 - Are you lucky PST folks unlocked and ready to rumble? I'm curious how long the unlocking will take. Two hours more for me in Tennessee. Time to get the grill heated up - steak time!

I'm getting excited!

Who are you talking about? Isn't it in 2 hours for everyone in North America?

Oh I think you're right; not sure what I was thinking there.
I blame this feisty Nordic Brew™!

Yeah, it should be unlocking simultaneously across the country at midnight EST.

Pre-loading it now. If all goes well, I'll have it pre-loaded before 9 PM PST! I've got beer, cheese, salami, and bread to go along with it! I'm feeling medieval tonight.

12 hours more and counting over here at GMT +8.
