Finally received my copy in the mail. The discs are scratched all to hell, but I'm going to see if it's playable after work so that I can at least join in on Friday. My wife is in as well.
did you get the infamous legendary edition or something?
No, just the Limited Edition (the two-disc version). Apparently UPS and the USPS like to serve all of their packages shaken, not stirred. Both discs were loose inside the packaging, and when I looked them over it looks like the delivery man allowed his child to scribble freely on the underside of my discs with a steak knife while in transport. I'm first going to see if I can exchange the game at Best Buy (their policy for damaged merchandise is to issue a credit and then have you repurchase the item in-store), but BestBuy.com has in-store pickup blacked out, making me wonder if any more Limited Editions are left at any of the Best Buys in my area.
