The stores breaking the street date doesn't affect you. The release date is the 24th. Anything else is either an error, a breach of contract or a privilege.
The release date was always the 24th.
i disagree. the stores do effect me. if i wanted to, i could go down to the store and buy the game right now. its an hour round trip, and i'd much rather give my money directly to stardock, but its an option. unless its a case where those people who bought a boxed copy off a storeshelf still cannot play because thier keys are still locked out, i think i have a right to be a little frustrated over this.
im not outraged, im not demanding that Stardock release the game right this minute, im just stating that i am frustrated, not with Stardock necessarily, more with the whole process in general. we were told yesterday that we'd be able to play today, maybe we will, maybe we won't, but since Frogboy said we would, it makes it even more frustrating as the day goes on.
i hope that stardock takes their time and gets it out when its ready, but at the same time, they said we'd get it today, so here i am, mashing the refresh button just like everyone else on these forums.
