View Full Version : Has Your Game Arrived? Are You Waiting For It To Be Delivered? Post Here!

**NO SPOILERS PLEASE**

A lot of people are expecting delivery of Assassin's Creed 3, today, tomorrow and over the next few days after launch.

A lot of us know what it is like when having to wait in for a delivery, especially when it is a big name like Asassin's Creed.

I thought it would be nice to have a place where everyone can post what they are going to be doing while waiting for the postman or courier. Are you taking any time off work for the delivery? How do you keep yourself busy while listening for anyone at door at the same time? Have you had any funny experiences with the courier or postman?

My 3 editions are currently in transit with UPS and scheduled for tomorrow. I've got a month holiday from work, so it has really been perfect timing. I expect the UPS van will mock me a bit by driving up and down or delivering to the neighbour and then driving off. Every car door means a dash to the window!


So what about everyone else?

Mine's probably going to arrive today, if not tomorrow. I'm so freakin anxious right now, pacing around my house and constantly looking out the window for the courier. I'm gonna have a breakdown.

Why do PC users post in the console forums?

Why do PC users post in the console forums?

Because most users prefer talking here. What's the point in posting in the PC forums if you're not gonna get as many replies?

Did you get a tracking code?

It was a recorded signed for delivery, so it's not really tracking, it's just to confirm that the item was delivered. Only found out yesterday :p

I didn't quite opt for a 3D tv but I got my cheap lil 23" Full HD LED tv, I just deleted almost all games from my PS3 (Not the save games, just the install files, chiilll :) ) Restored the file system and rebuilt the database, and I have 2 controllers charged up and ready to go. For sound I have these nice stereo computer speakers with a subwoofer that goes hard. Everything is optimized and ready to go.

Going to bed now, hopefully by the time I wake up the game is here. If not, you WILL be hearing about it, rest assured!

Happy waiting homies

That sucks :(

Mines scheduled to be here by the end of the day Wednesday. I'm hoping it will magically appear today though, its happened before with gamestop orders. I'm checking UPS hourly like most of you probably are, funny thing is that my Liberation bundle is 2 hours behind AC3. I wonder if they'll arrive together.

No, I'm a Forum Manager - as the title suggests ;)

I look after the forums [manage the team of moderators, create new forums, deal with software issues and other duties] make reports based on community feed back, meet the community at events, interact with them on social media


it's very far reaching - very similar to a Community Manager in other companies ;)

Yeah, but you also get games early and paid for it - like what people think games testers do, rather than this:

Well I have just taken delivery of my 3 Editions and I am sad to say, 2 of them were damaged. This seems to be a trend with Ubisoft. Brotherhood and Revelations arrived damaged last time.

My Freedom Edition has all dents and bashed corners and my Special Edition case was all smashed. How do they expect a little flimsy jiffy bag to protect it all the way from Germany with UPS, I have no idea.

Words really do fail me and there is so much I want to say, I have just spent 200, I expect to receive my items in good condition. I'm really disappointed.

Pre-ordered my copy on the 23rd from Gamestation. It was dispatched on Saturday. Just at work waiting for my Mum to text me if its come or not :P From the above post I'm not holding high hopes though :( Really hope it does come because I've ordered from GAME and Gamestation previously with very quick delivery so I'm just praying atm... Don't blame GAME btw, once it's been dispatched it's out of their hands meaning you should be blaming the Royal Mail. They're slow and very unreliable! If it doesn't come I guess I shall just be playing Mass Effect 3 with my mates again tonight. PLEASE COME! So excited now I've heard that its the best of the series!

I have to wait until the GameStop I pre-ordered everything from gets power back. I tried going to a different one but no luck. I hate that they won't let you pick up a game you pre-ordered in one place and pick it up at another. I understand how that could be difficult but still lol doesn't make me want it less. Oh well. I guess I'll just sulk for the rest of the week -_-

So who is still waiting for delivery or dispatch?

I had to email images of the damage of the 2 editions, now i'm waiting for them to get back to me. Did anyone else receive theirs damaged?

I emailed EBGames to see where my preorder was and they said it's still in transit and is expected to arrive on 2/12/2012. I hope they meant 2/11/2012 (tomorrow) coz I aint waiting a month.:p

Me. Didn't come yesterday (boooo...) and since it's national holidays in Poland today, it obviously won't come today either, mail doesn't work. So tomorrow at the earliest ugh.......... I want to play it already...........

I'll probably get it tomorrow or Saturday, even though it states Monday.
