Not for me! I saw it this morning...


In a vivid dream. Pretty geeky. I remember being amazed at the realism in the characters, as well as getting bitchslapped when stepping out of line.

I really wish this wasn't being unlocked at 2am in my time zone.  That means I get to wake up in the morning, check it out for about 5 minutes before work, and then endure EIGHT HOURS OF HELL waiting to get home.

The Steam forums are, without a doubt, one of the padded rooms of the Internet.  I'm almost sad when they're down, because it means all the people who post there are now bouncing around the rest of the Internet.

it's midnight PST...everyone else has to adjust accordingly (3am EST, 8am GMT, 10pm Wednesday if you live in Fiji).  it's a simultaneous worldwide release...everyone gets to play the game at exactly the same time Cool

The whole timezone thing is so damned unfair.

It'll be November 16th in a mere 13 minutes here, but instead I have to wait until 3 hours into the 16th.

God hates me. That's what it is.
