Yeah, I was going to say it's not worth going to a midnight launch unless you're in the Pacific or Mountain time zones.

Alternatively, and there are multiple confirmations of this by both Blizzard employees and customers who talked to customer support, you can get a refund within 30 days for any digital purchase from Blizzard. So if you're like me and won't have a physical copy delivered for a few days you can just purchase a digital copy and get a full refund once you receive your box.

Well if you get really stuck toss me a PM and we'll figure something out assuming b.net has gifting functionality.

I actually didn't think of doing that but the bank closes in about 20 minutes and, depending on traffic, might take me that long just to get there since I live in the outskirts of town.

I was also going to try and use Paypal but Blizzard only accepts it from US customers.

I'll just bite the bullet on this one and go in tomorrow at 8 and see what's open and hope they're not all sold out. Wal Mart usually has an excess but it's not a place I am particularly fond of.

I wasn't able to purchase D3 through the digital service since I paid off my credit card some time ago and got rid of it.

So, I was hopeful that our local Gamestop/EB Games would be doing a midnight launch as they have done so several times before for various titles. Turns out that all of Nova Scotia is exempt from the midnight event and my only option to take part would be to drive three hours to Halifax and go to Futureshop. Yeah right.

Meanwhile, some GS/EBG store way the fuck out in Whitehorse, Yukon is having a midnight event.

They just won't get my money I guess.

If you're still interested, can't you just walk down to your bank, get a prepaid travel credit card, transfer some money online and then buy the game digitally? Seems like the easiest method to me and you get the benefit of having a credit card that you can never overspend with. It's literally like a 2 minute thing at your bank and they can likely give you a temp card right there.

See, I knew exactly how your story was going to end the moment I read that...


Hah Yeah I know I should have known better but this is the first time I've really been shafted by them for a game release.

Owell, live and learn.

Amazon has my CE listed as "Shipping Soon". I'm doing everything I can to make today go by faster.

Mine shipped this morning. And it came from the warehouse just over the border in kansas, so it'll prob be in town by tonight...amazon needs a same day delivery option for us close folks!

Not buying it because of their always-on DRM makes that entirely unnecessary though.

Haha Cave Johnson rules!

I pre-ordered mine back in February from Gamestop (ordering a Blizzard game from Gamestop, how long before deqer jumps on me?) but only chose ground shipping. E-mailed them on Friday to see if I could get it upgraded to overnight for guaranteed delivery tomorrow, but they said it was too late as the package had already been prepped for shipping. Hopefully if it's not here tomorrow it will be soon.

Yeah, they put it in during the beta. I still managed to lose track of time, though.
