probably can still get it through Amazon. they give a $20 credit back to you, so it offsets the shipping charge of $6 or so.

Maybe I'm just in an area where they never run out of games, but it's pointless for me to preorder games and the stores around me never run out...ever.

Only time I order is when the game comes with bonuses I want. Otherwise I don't have to preorder since I got a ton of gaming stores around me.

I just saw that and I am going to the store to preorder it today.



I have been buying a lot of collectors editions lately too. Most of the crap I don't want but there are always couple of good stuff that come with them. I just got a cool looking USB from the SC2 one but all the other stuff I don't want (art book, comic, CD, DVD). So if anyone wants the other stuff for free just let me know.

Oh, oops I didn't read your post correctly. I thought you meant you got all that just by pre-ordering the regular game from Amazon. I see you already said you got the collectors edition. My bad on reading comprehension.

Is there anything on there that makes it worth the extra $40? I already have SC1 and Brood War so that USB does me no good.

I hope they make an option where you pick your favorite team in the beginning and it goes right to that team when you start an online match. Your settings/lines should also be saved too. Silly that you have to change them every single time you play a game.

Not unless your into all that other stuff or I could just give you all the stuff I got for free minus the USB of course and you can just get the game.

Edit: You do get icons that others don't get too.

Beat SC2 yesterday. Thouroughly enjoyed it. But now it's just back to HoN while waiting for NHL 11 and MOH. Stupid EB games didn't have any more beta for MOH when you pre-order.

I reaaaaalllllllllllllly want to play that beta. I want a FPS so bad on my new computer.

I've been hoping for a separate "Edit Online Lineup" menu for the last two years... It's pretty simple. For an NHL team you can use any NHL player on the team as well as anyone on the AHL affiliate if you want. All of the lines for each team starts at the default ones, but if you want to change them you only have to do it once for each team, until a new roster patch comes out. It would be so much easier. The Devils lineup is almost always butchered, especially the special teams, so I have a ton of people drop out of the game lobby while I'm editing.

Just trainwrecked some kid in The Show.

Was 2-2 until the bottom of the sixth. Six straight batters, six hits, two long 3-run bombs for Chipper and Heyward.

Other kid pretty much lost his focus from there.

they said that every year, and every year i love it. i dont care what anyone says. i do hate using the DPad (on 360) for defensive adjustments, hot routes, etc...that will take some getting used to but still

i play in an online franchise so it actually gets pretty fun. we got 9 seasons into it last year and i was the vikings

I did too. I'll play it anyway, but I'm not going to buy it. NHL comes out too fast afterwards.

I gave up on Madden. Just stopped being fun. And playing online against people that make 5000 adjustments before the snap is annoying.

the new DPad control makes it impossible to make all those pre adjustment snaps

if you get in a competitive league with guys and pull off trades, do drafts, etc it really gets fun IMO

Maddens gameplay IMO opinion hasn't changed significantly in a while. They've been slow to add new features to make the game realistic and the only updates are graphic updates. They're still glitches and crap.

if you play NHL07 and then play NHL11 you will immediately know the difference, which is not the case with Madden

they completley revamped the run game this time though, the blocking schemes are all different and not just a glob of guys stuck together

At this point Kovalchuk Must be a Devil in NHL 11

The game releases to the public in a little over 3 weeks now. I would have to imagine that the cutoff for team rosters is finalized in the programming and since Kovy was a Devil as of the last time he played, he will probably be in the lineup for the game right?
