    I think hoaxes like that are fun! I guess moderators will be moderators, but I like a good laugh. Some people are pretty amped about getting this xpac though, so I won't speak for them about it. I remember a while back a guy on Planet elder scrolls posted about how they were making morrowind an MMORPG...

    that was hilarious.

    Seriously if I didn't have a job I would have been at EB games picking up my copy today when the truck comes in at 10 am.

    If anyones got it please post screenshots. No gay photoshop posts.
    Hopefully I'll get it on the way home from work today.

    From my understanding I believe it ships today which means it will be at the stores tomorrow, right?

    Or am I missing something?

    Apparently it didn't arrive in America or something. Someone tried to get it but couldn't. He even went so far to say that there was a delay or something. Unfortunately the whole thread has pretty much been deleted now. I don't know, why did they have to delete it? I thought I just wasted the last 3 hours of my time and NOW I have nothing to show for it! :sigh:

    I had a dillemma in purchasing Warlords. I wanted to get it today on my lunch break, but I had an amazon.com gift certificate that would cover it. Should I get it today or preorder on amazon and get it later this week? I went for later this week for free. So I guess I'll just have to find something to do until then :cry: Read someone's Warlord succession game narrative maybe.

    I WAS there this morning. The truck did not come in. In addition, I got a message from the company I pre-ordered from that it has been delayed and there is no other info from Amazon at this point.

    Worst Buy says they expect it today, but their recieving date on their computers show 7/25/06. I drove to several stores, including everyone's favorite, Wal-Mart, and spoke to several management people, all of whom stated that they have not recieved it, and did not expect to do so until this afternoon at the earliest.

    The manager at the local Worst Buy even agreed to call me when it comes in (The least they could do after all the $$$ I spend there!).

    I called three local game shops in New York. They all said expect it tomorrow afternoon.

    From my experience, most games are in stores on the day after its release. There are exceptions with big games (e.g. Warcraft III, World of Warcraft), where I was able to get the game on the day of release, but again they are the exceptions.

    I got civ the day it came out, right when the truck got there.
    Usually the truck comes in and they give the people a day (by noon) to put it on the shelves.
    I was just annoying as hell and walked in as they were opening boxes in the back and was like, hey got any civs in there.

    I pre-ordered the expansion, I'll stop by after wrok, I'm in NYC too in the village.
    I'm not getting my hopes up, but i they don't give me the game tomorrow I'll have to take a vallium ;)

    At least you guys will get it tomorrow the latest. I have to wait like a week and a half until I can play Warlords, even if I order it today!

    It was a thread 7 pages long. Best not talk about contents why give these kids credits for their cheap jokes. Tacky at best to play with hearts and minds of Civ fans.
