Angry No longer available for pre-order

EBGames has removed the Sam and Max 2 pre-order page, and so has Amazon.

Bad sign, now the hope is pretty much blown to shreds, as if it wasn't already.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

Not that it matters, but they did have free shipping albeit slow-I-think-I'll-play-soccer-with-your-package shipping.

The $10 I'm willing to pay for shipping shows my devotion of my willingness to purchase this game!!

Or stupidity.

Whichever.


Edit: Actually, now that I think about it, I think I got 2nd day or something.

They moved the release date two days before? What kind of crap is that? Most places just realized it was cancelled and took it off the preorder page.

My Birthday

Thats the day before my birthday!! Yippee, its like taking candy away from a kid and having him cry for a month and then giving him the candy back the day before his birthday so he can jump up and down like monkey. This is seriously the way I'm feeling about this game!


Gratuitous acts of senseless violence are MY forte

Until we hear an official apology from Lucasarts ("Due to recent extreme public pressure, we have decided to reinstate Sam and Max 2 into production"), which we will, I wouldn't trust those pre-order dates. The dates could jump around everywhere.

It actually made it up to the 28th of this month. It seemed as though that every day that passed, it got one day closer (as in on the 1st, EBGames said the 30th; 2nd, the 29th; and so on. It has actually been doing that for about two weeks now.

Until today.

"Thank you for ordering from EBgames.com. This email is to confirm that
your order has been cancelled. If you have any questions about your
order, please give us a call at (877) 432-9675 or send an email to

for shopping at http://www.ebgames.com

Here is the status of the item(s) you have ordered:
SAM AND MAX 2 PC Ordered: 1 Shipped: 0"


*sigh* Oh well. I was so upset, I took the money that I was going to spend on the game, and bought a MINI Cooper. (I was never too good at math.)

EDIT:

Oops... posted first, read later. Sent a few hours earlier:

"Dear EBgames.com Customer,

EBgames.com strives to fill all of the orders that we receive but once
in a while a product that is listed as coming soon does not make it
onto the shelves. This has happened with an item that you have on order.
We will not be receiving any copies of Sam and Max 2 PC, and therefore
will be unable to fill your order. We have cancelled your order for this
item and your credit card will not be charged. If you have other items
on your order, those will remain on the order and shipped as soon as
possible.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to either reply to
this e-mail or give us a call at 877-432-9675.

We apologize for the inconvenience,
EBgames.com Customer Service"
