The smaller Gamestop / EBgames look like you like your an alien if you don't pre-order and try to grab a copy on release day.
I want to buy it from Direct2Drive but am wondering if you get a backupable download or that craptastic EA downloader thing.
Oh, and noticed this... Direct2Drive charges sales tax, but steam and EA don't. If I got to pay tax I'll go to target lol.
D2D didn't charge me sales tax...
