    Well I went into my local games store excitedly to purchase Far Cry but to my horror they had run out of the last copy and won't be getting any in for about a week. So I sadly gave them my money and said well can you contact me when you get any more copies. So anyone know what I can do to make the week go by faster? I can only play the Research and Fort Demos oh so many times before I crave for more.

    512MB DDR RAM(PC2700)
    ECS KS75A PRo Mobo
    Nvidia MSI FX5700 Ultra 128MB
    Seagate 80GB 7200RPM 8MB Cache HDD + Samsung 20GB 5200RPM 2MB Cache HDD
    AC 97 Onboard Sound

    I don't like buying online and besides the place I am getting it from have taken $10 off the game becuase I am a regular there so waiting a week to get it cheaper is worth it and besides I gotta get better at the game so the demo's are getting a workout still.

    If there's any other stores in your area I'd try em, particularly ones that didn't do a preorder.

    gamestop didn't have any, they said only preorder fills, but eb had a shelf full of them.
