This game going to support FSAA out of the box? Or is it the usual U3 engine crap?

If its back ordered, why does it say quantity back ordered = 0?
Not sure Capt, I was wondering the same thing - I had it ordered from Gamestop.com - they haven't sent out an e-mail or anything but they always ship by street date and it's still sitting there as an "open" order, and not shipped or even processed yet.

The release date on GoGamer's website is the 28th now...

It was the 27th when I pre-ordered.

It now reads as "backordered" on my order as well.

My order isn't even listed on GoGamer's website for some reason. It hasn't been since I made it. Probably because its a pre-order.

I called my local Gamestop and they said they expect to have shipments in on Wednesday. *crosses fingers*

I just ordered from Direct2Drive instead - guaranteed to download at midnight, can't get a similar promise from Gamestop as my order hasn't even processed yet, and it's the same price.

The planet exploration is a little boring, but it's optional, required though if you wanna make Lvl 60. The combat does look a little clunky, BUT it's not as bad as it looks and fairly easy, if not a little easy to exploit.

OK just to update: My Gamestop order did ship after all, turns out the 1-day delay in receiving their shipment from the manufacturer, no doubt because of the holiday, caused the "backordered" status to be erroneously displayed (probably same deal for you Capt). I just cancelled my D2D buy, should be getting it in the mail tomorrow.

Good to hear.


The reviews sound good, so I can't wait to get my hands on this.

I have to hurry up and finish Psychonauts though. For some reason that game is taking me forever to finish.
