Well this pisses me off. So I pre-ordered ME2 on Amazon first thing Saturday morning. My expected ship date isn't until NEXT Monday!!! What the hell is that.
Did you pay for shipping? If not, that's why.

Well, Amazon had better be overnighting this thing to me. I had release date delivery and it's only just now changed to shipping soon. If I don't have Mass Effect 2 tomorrow I'll cry.
They've overnighted games to me before. I wouldn't worry.

That means you're getting it 17 hours late, compared to buying retail from GameStop in EST.

Re: Mass Effect 2

So... you only get something on release day if you pay for shipping? I'll have to keep that in mind in the future. But I know we've ordered things before and gotten them on the day or so with free shipping. Not games but books/DVDs.

I think it depends on the game. I pre-ordered Modern Warfare 2 through Amazon, and I'm pretty sure I got it on release day at no extra charge. Then again, I'm an Amazon Prime member, so my shipping would have been free anyway.

Re: Mass Effect 2

While we wait for that, there's something I've been wondering about. Let's have a show of hands; how many people here have a savegame to import in which Kaiden is still alive?
I'd be willing to bet not many.

So far I've killed Carth every single time. Only on the "get Carth achievement" run will he survive.

Re: Mass Effect 2

I ordered the game directly from EA. They sent me a 25% off discount on any game back on my birthday and I opted to use it on the Collector's Edition of Mass Effect 2.

It came this afternoon, I've been playing for the last few hours....so hard to stop playing....I really wish I didn't have to work tomorrow.

Bioware owns my soul, but honestly they can just keep it.

Yeah Kaiden is always the one that died in my save games. I also always fornicated with Ash.

How could she rub you the wrong way, when you never gave her a chance to rub you?

(Seriously, people play Shepard as a male more than once? Even if I didn't want to be spending 20 hours of gameplay staring at femShep's ass instead of manShep's, the difference in the voice acting is huge.)

I let Kaiden die. No way was I giving up the chance to "comfort" Ashley.

Even, though, curiously, I put much more effort in with Liara.
