Max Payne Pre-orders Detained at the Border

A .plan update by George Broussard has word that that due to problems with customs at the Canadian border (I'm guessing Max refused to surrender his firearms), their copies of Max Payne intended for those who pre-ordered the game have been delayed, and will be going in the mail this afternoon, rather than a couple of days ago as was originally planned. The update also mentions that the 3D Realms web server bonked, and as a result, the messageboards will be offline until next week sometime, a case of truly unfortunate timing with a new game on the shelves. According to the update, those who pre-ordered Max Payne from 3D Realms should expect delivery Friday. Update: An update on the 3D Realms website confirms that all their pre-orders have now shipped as promised.

Because 3DR said they'd deliver, and they didn't. Simple as that. It wasn't their fault, but the blame must fall on them, imo.
