I am refusing to call my EB. I will just stop in on my way home and if they don't have it just go home and play psychonauts.  Tongue

No Joy. Sales lump wasn't there but the EB guy made sure to tell me that it only shipped today. They love getting their points across. Thinking about checking out Best Buy later tonight just for the fun of it plus I have a 10% off coupon I can use.

I`m checking for you bloody fools and I don`t even plan on buying it for a while :wink: !!! I`m near Cleveland, Ohio and the EB I called said that some of the stores around here had it for preorders today. My PC needs work before I grab this, and I might just wait and grab it on 360 WHEN I GET ONE!!! :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted: Hope that helps!

I love when the sales lumps insist that they are correct...."The street date is tommorrow", "no stores have it today", "it is not released yet" etc....

That, along with an install of the game, will allow you to make your own Oblivion content.  I imagine Tim will be using it to remake his shopkeeper mod. biggrin

In theory, I might even have it up tomorrow.

Depends on how engrossed I am with the game itself. And how quickly my skills (or lack thereof) from Morrowind transfer over. biggrin

But doesn't the construction set come with the game like it did with Morrowind?

No, you have to download it separately...

I also wonder if it would be possible to have a construction set that works without having the game installed. This way people who don't have the game can still make mods.

I was mad because I was told over the phone that they had it today then I went by the store to be told they dont have it, plus I hate Fry's anyway so its easy to be annoyed at them.

I have a gripe (although I know better and shouldn't gripe) but WTF are they telling people ordering pre-orders what the ship date is. Why not tell people the date it is susposed to arrive at the store?? I know it sound pissy but we are their friggin core and they should be more honest with us. No more ship dates. Give us the freaking release date.

Can't stand sales lumps!! (Did I coin a new phrase???  biggrin )

I hate to break the news to you, but we are not the core anymore for specialty game retail chains.  Why?  Because we've already embraced digital delivery, we buy most of our stuff online, and we are not susceptible to their sales pitches for stuff we don't need.

I stopped by Best Buy last night just on the off chance they got the shipment late and put it out. I was on my way to someplace else so it wasn't a special trip. I went to the Xbox 360 aisle a blue shirted employee asked me within a minute if I needed any help finding something. I asked if they had Oblivion and the employee said, no we will receive our shipment and tomorrow and then he said sorry I made the trip and they didn't have it.

No EB sales lump tude. Thats all I ask. (I am positive not all EB stores are like this but why does it have to be the one close to me?)

I will hit Best Buy later on tonight and cancel my EB pre-order.

Just got the 360 Collector's Edition from Holyoke, MA Best Buy.  I actually had to take it out of their little stocking shopping cart.  I've really grown to enjoy getting new releases at Best Buy.  Their website is very accurate as far as saying when the item is in the store.

My Best Buy is not as conveniently located as my EB store is but I am going to start doing my new release shopping there too. I am lazy but I am done with the sales lumps at that particular EB Games.

I would figure that sometimes it's got to be no fun trying to push EB Games agenda.  I popped over there while I was waiting to grab my Oblivion copy (it was in store but not out on the floor yet) and some guy was asking about the PC version.  The woman said that they only had the regular but would have the Collector's maybe after 2.  Then she asked him if he had preordered and he said no and she was like - "well if you had pre-ordered I'd be calling you to let you know it was coming instead of you having to check".  Of course since it wasn't there yet it was kind of a moot point wasn't it?  Plus it was being stocked on the shelves at Best Buy just a hop down the mall hallway.

The dudes at the EB Games by me were awesome.  Too bad it got shut down when the Gamestop acquisition kicked in.

The guys at the Gamestop by me...holy shit, I literally can barely stand to set foot in there.  It took all of my willpower to preorder Oblivion from them.  I did it because the store is like 3 minutes away and it was best shot at getting the game ASAP from a local brick and mortar.

The second you walk in they are trying to push shit on you.  Bring used games?  Want the guide?  Want to become a member of some fucking thing?  You sure you dont want the guide, its 20% off, you know?  Next time bring your used games, it makes your new ones cheaper!  Oh wait, you want to pre-order this game here?  The one that is nothing at all like the game you just asked me about?  No?  What about EA-game-2007?  Its awesome!  Etc. etc. etc.  On top of all of this, they dont come across like genuine gamers.  If you ask them about a game they parrot back-of-the-box bullet points to you.

Also, and I know most of them are like this these days, the place is just fucking console city.  And the crowd there is like wigger wanna-be's trying to sell back questionable looking merchandise.  The PC section is just a half-height stand-alone island in the very back of the store.  They have more shelf space devoted to strategy guides than PC games!

olaf

edit: In my ranting I forgot to add that my copy is supposed to be in at 12:30.  I should have it early this afternoon, I am psyched.

I just picked up the Collecters Edition for the Xbox 360 from Best Buy here in Scottsdale, Az.   I had a preorder in at Gamecrazy, but they didn't have any Collecters Editions availalbe.   The packaging is pretty impressive, and the Pocket Guide is great.  Im a sucker for the additional history smile

Of course, being at work instead of playing the game is killing me!  So if your in AZ, the Best Buy at PV Mall at Cactus/Tatum had quite a few regular & collector editions for both PC & Xbox.

Thanks for the welcome Knight.  I've shopped at that EB as well, and I agree, very helpfull and lumpless!  I've been reading the board for awhile and plan on becoming more active.   And now I continue the agonizing wait until I leave work smile

Went in this afternoon to the GS where I pre-paid for my CE edition. Unfortunately the ASSistant Manager, whom I dislike, was there. He had pulled the regular editions (which my friend bought), but told me that it would take an hour for him to go through the 3-4 boxes he had left. 1 HOUR for 3-4 small boxes...

Also, and he has done this to me before, he basically ignored me after I asked for Oblivion (and before my friend paid for his) and started helping a customer who had come in after us, even though we were waiting. I really can't stand him. He somes off as rude to me and seems very anti-social.

As soon as all my pre-orders are done (most are store credit, which I don't know if you can transfer) I am going to stop going there and I'm seriously thinking about writing to the district manager. I never had a problem there when the old store manager was there.

got mine at the Comp USA on 1960 in Houston\humble area of TX. I have it paid off at the EB I use but for $44.99 I can just apply that to another game or get a refund. I am also stuck at work and cant wait till I get home to try it. I only saw like 4-5 copies when I got there but they may have more in the back.

Yeah, I decided tonight that I am going to. I went back and found out that they didn't have any CE's! Apparently, none of the other GS's nearby got any either (except for the 360 version, bah..)It would have taken him 5 minutes to check the boxes and tell me that so I didn't have to make a 2nd trip for nothing. One other reason I was holding back was that I like most of the people in the store and didn't want to get "the store" in trouble. I found out that wasn't the case and that other customers have complained. I figured it's better to try to get him out before he ruins the stores whole reputation.

On a side note, the manager was nice enough that I got a regular edition to play and can return it when the CE's come in, so I'm not SOL! Yay!
We already tried my friends copy at work on a PIV 3.6Ghz, 2GB, 7900GTX 512MB system. Maxed out everything and it ran smooth. smile
