That's probably why I put "or take it off the disc" in there.

Same thing here on amazon, I got it for $44 I think. Splinter Cell Conviction as well. Amazon preorder is awesome because you always get the lowest price from when you preorder to when it ships.

Still no confirmation that my Gogamer $39 preorder shipped. Guess they are not awake over there yet.

Gamespot reviews the PC version and gives it a full point less because of the DRM and "high price" (which is the same as console price and includes the DLC).

The gaming media often baffles me.

I found just the opposite, they have been very fast for getting games to me. Can't say good enough things about this company from what I've experienced in my many past orders.

Not in any rush anyway. Waited how long for PC version now? Waiting a few more days is hardly a big deal.

Edit: Yeah, the gaming media is just so corrupt nowadays it's not even funny. Biased and bought out to the max..

Not their fault that they play for their audience...

It's a very small percentage of people who are just REALLY loud though.

Time for work. I got of play time in. I've got the Assassin's Robe and garb now. Sword fights are awesome. Love the animations better than the first one. Much more violent this time
