Out of the Blue

Well my visit to Doctor Toothy got forestalled yesterday, as my car decided it didn't want to start. I kind of have myself to blame for relying on a battered 12-year old sports car with 110k miles on it, but it has never stranded me before, so I guess that can be forgiven. I'm rescheduled for next week, so I'll have to figure out what's up with the car between now and then.

So no preorder GW2 on Steam or other digital services. And in Canada apparently EBGames has the exclusive on it. So the want me to go to a store I hate and support them as well as pay an additional 13% in taxes that I don't pay online? Oh yeah, and htf are you supposed to have a 3 day head start if don't even get your copy till launch day? Fucking NCSoft. It's wonder those clowns are still in business. Looks like I won't be playing GW2 afterall. Jesus they've really dropped the ball on this one.

I really don't know how they managed to make buying their game so complicated. But as far as the head start goes, they'll probably do it like every other company does, where you get a code when you preorder--no wait, "prepurchase"--and apply it to your account, then when you get the box, you put in the retail code.
