Ebgames can really eat me right now. What's the deal with the PC version suddenly not existing?

Whooo!! Right now, I am downloading it!! ..





OK, of course I am not.

I will tell you what I will do. Being totally oldschool, I will go to the shop, go to the shelf, grab it with my hands and .. buy it with real cash, like I did with Schäfer-games(TM) since The Secret Monkey Island.

The problem I currently face is to find a store which sells the uncut original version, because I like to play it with all the blood enabled and the extreme violent content.

The other problem is to get the money for buying it, so wether I have to find some old ladies to sell my young muscleless body to or I have to sell my shoes. Either way will serve Tim I think, and fill him with joy if he'd only knew about it, however, he will have food because of my money.

Dude, it will be several months before any European store will sell a Psychonauts game that was not imported from the States. Months. Several.

Xbox. I've been playing it for quite a while. I knew the story and characters and scenery and whatnot would rock, but I'm suprised by how fun and non-repetitive the gameplay is. The actions to get through each level do not resemble each other one bit.

.............all of a sudden I realize how much of a dick I am to brag about how cool the game is. I shall restrain. Although, it's semi-justified I guess since I was excited for the game when it was announced in 2002, and I know this forum is crowded with people who "just got into it a few months ago". I still feel like a dick though.

Yes. That is the ultimate chance to put my fingers on an imported copy.

Anyone got the PC version yet?

Four words? Are you some sort of android?!

Anyway! I got my copy yesterday! After a brief session of gleeful hyperventilation, I played it all night while wearing nothing but the accompanying t-shirt!

I did take my mind off of it for a moment to wish that I was big enough to wear said shirt in public as a shirt and not a dress. And today, I vowed not to touch a console until I finished a couple of serious projects with looming deadlines. I'm wilting, but I've never felt so motivated.

...! I own Psychonauts!

Oh man, that shirt would make a great nighty on a hot girlfriend. I should have preordered from gamestop(might actually have it) instead of ebgames. I don't think she'd dig that though.

Regardless, I really would have liked to have known that they were going to ship the pc version a week late. Kind of ruined the entire week....and the package tracking says this:

"The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper or shipping partner on April 25, 2005 to expect your package for mailing. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later."

WTF is that suppposed to mean? Does that mean they shipped it or USPS just knows they're going to ship it at some point. I am so pissed about this.

Ha..well, maybe when I get it I can try to make her wear the cards instead...I definately don't think she'll dig that...don't want to hurt the cards anyway.

Wow, you must really like Psychonauts. Yeah, I guess my four words didn't do it justice. It is definitely in the top two range of my favorite games. I'm not sure if I liked it better than Grim Fandango yet.

I don't know if you can really compare Grim and Psychonauts, at least not on a pure gameplay level.

VSTM
04-29-2005, 04:11 PM
I used my gamepad to play Grim Fandango. I probably won't with Psychonauts, though...which is probably backwards compared to what most people will do.

But, yes, I agree. I really don't think you can compare the two. Apples and Oranges. I like 'em both.

That would probably be your "Has your eb games order shipped yet?", or something like that, thread.

Oh, neither of those two. In fact, I've never played Grim Fandango, but it sounds pretty good. I just don't think that our computer has the right capabilities. Oh, and pretty much all of my other games suck, and the other ones just plainly aren't very good compared to this.

Well after spending Friday afternoon being told by both EBgames and gmaestop that they didn't have the PC version in the stores (any of them I was told) I read on here that someone saw it at walmart. So I got over there and in the corner on it's side I found a few copies. :) So now here one Monday I'm finished with it and wishing for a sequel.

I think that happened to me once with a ups package, so I just went and picked it up from them myself. Probably not an option, but it might be worth investigating.

Wow. What a debacle.

After abandoning GameStop when they couldn't decide when they were going to ship it (changed their minds about nine times), I went direct to the source and the brand spangly new Double Fine store.

Unfortunately the store omitted to mention that they were all going on holiday, so they wouldn't ship the PC version until May 9th. Cancelled that.

Scooted off to my old import games haunt at ImportMadness.co.uk, even though I knew their customer service was rubbish. They said they had the PC version in stock, so I ordered.

I waited and I waited, the EBGames and GameStop releases came and went, everyone bragging about how far they got, me avoiding this forum, and STILL Import Madness listed my order's ship date as 'Pending'.

Went full circle back to GameStop. Ordered again. Shipped within a hour, made it to the UK by the end of Friday, and this Monday morning it arrived, slightly later than the normal post. Installed it, configured it, played it, loved it.

I'M PLAYING PSYCHONAUTS AT LAST!

Have they shipped it yet? What country are you in, UK?

Send then an e-mail asking why it hasn't been shipped. Mine shipped within about a hour of me asking. They might have some problem with accessing your bank account, or your order's just got lost.

I think the Double Fine store should be shipping now. Anyone going with them?

05-10-2005, 12:06 PM
Nah, Germany. And apart from the order confirmation and some news shtuff, I haven't gotten any mails from GameStop. I'll try e-mailing them.

Hi everyone,

I just ordered this game from Double Fine's store. It's the PC version. I hope everything will go alright with their store. I'm in the Netherlands by the way.

I really liked the demo and I can't wait to play the full game. Hopefully it will be as great as Grim Fandango. :)

The Tingler
05-11-2005, 11:28 AM
One thing I didn't know until the day before I got the full game:

Did anyone know that the demo of Psychonauts expires after a certain amount of time? A month or so, I think.

I heard about that somewhere. Can't recall where though. I think it expires after a month or so maybe on the same date as the full release?

Huh? You mean the Xbox version works on PAL Xboxes, or do you have a modded Xbox?

On a very very frustrating and surprising note, my copy of Psychonauts shipped today.

Confused? Me too.

Not from GameStop again, or from Import Madness (which is where I'd guess if someone told me this had happened - they've all but done it before) - but from Double Fine! Yes! Even though they said they'd cancelled the order and refunded the money!

EDIT:
Got this note back.

Hi Chris,

Whoops! We have a new person helping out with the store and it looks like they
made a pretty serious mistake...yikes. When the shipment comes, could you just
refuse delivery? They should return to sender.

Kelli

Thanks!

From the UK?

No, it's region locked, but I have a very deep hatred of region lockout systems so any piece of equipment I own is modified to get around this. Psychonauts is the perfect example of why I do this.

Does anyone know if they released another, non-time-limited demo? My computer isn't good enough for the demo, I was thinking of trying it on another one, but I don't feel like downloading another 457MB just to find it's still expired.

Okay, so Double Fine sent out my copy of the game (shipped to England) and apparently I have it. Only thing is, I had them send it to my home address and I'm 400 miles away at Uni. But don't worry (like you would) it was totally intentional. I go home a week tomorrow and I've got exams all next week so Psychonauts would have distracted me had it been sent here, but now it's something to look forward to when I go home (that and food).

But my parents assure me it arrived, they don't know it was shipped from America (I think) but for some reason it says 'Game' or something similar on the packaging just so they know it's something that'll waste my time over the summer.

I rented the game and had only a week to beat it...so I didn't get a chance to do any of the extra stuff or upgrade any more then I had to.

I MUST HAVE THE GAME NOW! I haven't played a game that i can get into this much in a LONG LONG time.

Too bad I'm totally broke :'(
...at this rate I'll have to wait another month to own it and play it again.
