I live in England, so it'll probably be released a bit later than that over here, but hopefully it will be out before Christmas this year. At least it had better be, because I need something to do before Jedi Outcast is released.

Yeah, i can't wait till Jedi Outcast either, but that will be a while...

Fortunatly, i live in North Carolina, and the store near me usually just gets games a day or two late.

Yeah, i hate it when they put off the release date. I want a good game, that is finished, but i also want it soon.

Plus, if you look at alot of teh games that have been put off, they usually end up pretty bad.

Exclamation release date

'Fall' can mean anything... I heard that it ships at Thanksgiving.. add a week to that or something and you're pretty close to the actual release date..

as long as they release it this year, i'll go gradually through the following stages:

no release date set
speculating on release date
game slipped a few weeks
ordering it
getting the game in my hands
playing it

that sounds about right, but change the ordering step to going to the store.

my experience with store-clerks isn't that good. i usually tend to deal with one who doesn't even know what he's selling, but still is trying to pitch it to me like he knows what he's talking about.

What do they have to know. Go to the store, pick up the game, walk over to the counter, give it to the clerk, give the clerk your money, take the bag containing your game, walk out of the store, hurry home and play it. There, that wasn't so hard, was it?

ok. here's how it went before i gave up on stores:

i went to the store, walked up to the counter, clerk was in the showroom answering hotmail, i waited, clerk didn't get the hint, i went to him, clerk didn't understand that i didn't want something from the shelf but wanted to order something, i explained i wanted to order, clerk said i could do that online (he really did !!), i explained i wanted to do it there, clerk got up, went to desk, typed in computer, told me he couldn't find title, i explained it hadn't been released yet, he typed again, then found it (doh..), then tried to explain to me that he couldn't have it there right away but i should wait for it because it was a great game (double doh..), then i explained for the third time i wanted to pre-order and THEN he finally did.
the agony.
so it wasn't quite that simple

That guy must just be a loser. There aren't a whole lot of people like that working at gaming stores.

This is all you need to be a game store clerk:

Take game
scan game
take money
put game in bag and hand it to customer
say "Have a nice day, then "

Not to hard, eh.
