    I read when it went gold--both on the official site and a host of others(including this one).

    Ordinarily, an announcement that a game has gone gold is followed later by a declaration that it has shipped to retailers and etailers. I fully expected to read such an announcement today or yesterday, as it seems to me that it had to ship on one of these two days in order to allow for the actual transportation time and to give businesses the opportunity to process their shipments before the blessed 30th of October.

    I have heard nothing of the sort, however. Not here, not on Apolyton, nor via Gamespy daily update email. Has the game already shipped without fanfare? Or is there a more ominous reason for the dearth of reviews and the silence over shipping? :confused:
