If its about anything relating to the game put it here
no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
I want it...NOW! That's related to the game, right?
In all seriousness...expect an online dynasty thread as soon as I get my hands on the game.
I stopped on my way to work to pick it up and the clerk(re: Cockbreath/fucktard) had no clue right next to the poster of Tim Tebow (JULY 13) were it was at?
Awesome customer service...Going to Best Buy at lunch.
That is fantastic. Every time I think that there simply can be no additional word-combo insults, an even better one pops up. Well done.
... in the past 9.5 hours. No complaints? OMG Shirtless? FA? Bueller? Anybody?
I guess the rule only applies to bobblethon threads.
This game has been an obsession for me since I first got NCAA Football 2005. I have been devouring every shred of information and video for two weeks.
Unfortunately, I have to wait until I get paid Friday to pick up a new XBox 360 and the game.
To avoid 10 more. Poor attempt to garner pity for your "tragic" plight
his post gave me a flashback to old Em0. His meltdowns usually started like that. Is it him?
When I got home from work, there was only one NCAA thread. It is release day, I can deal with it. Nobody is asking me to do anything. Nobody is trying to give me a reminder. Nobody is trying to guilt me into doing something.
The Bobblethon threads are like the fucking greenpeace/save the whales jacktards with their damn clipboards that I used to see on campus and are still all over the place. You can walk right past them but they're still annoying as fuck, and you yearn for the days when Old Redface/Captain America/Marvin/ any of the other Ann Arbor homeless would beat the fuck out of them for infringing on their territory.
Or sober up.
I played it for a few hours last night, and I love the running game (Vincent Smith is QUICK), but there's some jack-tard glitches that should never be put out in a final game. I even downloaded a patch when I first put it in, and two games later my quarterback was running 30 yards backwards uncontrollably after missing a handoff. Other minor problems like blurry replays have happened also.
Ha, I've seen the handoff problem a few times. It's very annoying. Also there is one where your QB goes into "throwing" stance when he hits the LOS. It was said this was going to be fixed but I've still been hit by it.
Looks like it will be a while before mine arrives in the mail. Pretty bummed.
I'm happy about not spending $60+ but I'd love to have that game on my doorstep when I get home. Not happening. Estimated delivery date is 7/22. Dang!
On the plus side, the rostters will be done by the time you get the game.
I can understand not having release date delivery like some places do but I can't understand why they can't get the game to customers sooner than 10 days to 2 weeks after release. Anyone have prior experience with Dell? Are those estimated delivery dates conservative? Otherwise I'm SOL till the 23rd.
my Dell confirmation yesterday, so they are shipping them. I have a UPS tracking number but it is not showing the estimated delivery date yet at UPS.com.
I got Dell confirmation, but it says the shipment is delayed and I shouldn't expect to receive it until 7/23. Bummer...
We should start an online dynasty for the people who receive the game 10 days late from Dell.
I got my Dell confirmation and it has already shipped and should be here Thursday.
I guess the good news about getting the game later is that the rosters should already be done by the time you get it.
I got my Dell shipping confirmation yesterday and tracking is showing that it is out for delivery today. I think it helped that Dell shipped from Atlanta and I'm in Alpharetta (northern suburb).
Before yesterday's email, it was showing delivery by July 23, so don't sweat it, I'm sure you guys will get it before then.
I figured - and wrongfully assumed - Dell would ship all preorders last week so we would get it today.
I just checked my status again and it says shipped (thank God) but when I went to UPS to see the shipping location, the tracking number did not work.
So who knows? I might get it this week, or I might get it on the 21st like the invoice said. Either way, I like the idea of an online dynasty for those of us who ordered from Dell.
am getting my copy on the 15th per UPS. Can't wait. The clips on youtube look amazing.
Huh. I got mine from Dell and it arrived yesterday.
I guess we got our orders in earlier. Who knows
Before it even released in stores...?
definitely odd considering i got something from Dell saying my shipment would be delayed. i thought it came out tuesday until i saw all the midnight buying threads on here.
a week earlier than expected....and $20 cheaper.
Live the game so far but already in the first game woolfolk and denard are out for the season. Absolutly love the running game. This is why this version is leaps and bounds better then previous years.
As of 4:44AM, my copy (pre-ordered from EA in March, when somebody here posted the link) is out for delivery.
I'm goin to leave work at 11 to take my wife to the doctor and after that, play all day!
My preorder from EA looks to be on time and should be delivered somewhat soon this afternoon. Can't wait.
I'm pumped up to play this game. I told my fiance' i'm working from home today. She laughed and said have fun all day playing a video game. Also if anyone wants to play online let me know? I have the PS3 version.
I can't wait to run the ball with DRob and company today.
my psn's heatmiser15.
Are roster for sale on the PS3 store? If so I'll buy them when I get home and pass on the rosters.
Dont buy rosters. They are free online after a few days. They wont be for sale until after free ones are available for download. The only people that sell rosters are those that download the free ones themselves.
I think that FK sells rosters, but there is no need to buy them as they will be free from the guys making rosters on Operation Sports.
We wanted to let you know that there is a delay with one or more items in your order.
Based on the latest available information, we have adjusted the
We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience.
You can do this, although it is shady and I would never recommend anything shady.
Buy the game from a retailer where you can return unopened games and "return" the (unopened) game that Dell sends you on 7/27. Just make sure you understand the store's return policy.
Does Best Buy have this policy? If not, have you done this before? And if so, where?
had this policy, no receipt needed, just an unopened game, then again they are no longer in business . . .
Can you cancel and just go buy it?
that he already paid for it unfortunately.
I mean, I've had things refunded because they couldn't be shipped for when I needed them. Only a suggestion, since this is obviously a matter of life and death.
when they told me 7/23 as my estimate. I would assume as long as it has not shipped you can cancel and get yours today from BB or Gamestop.
My order hasn't shipped and they haven't sent any explanation but I can look forward to an estimated delivery of 7/23.
This is off topic - but this is exactly how I feel about having to wait for the iPhone 4 in Canada... it SUCKS!
I'm sure you can find a way to get crappy reception on your current phone! I had No Service all morning on my iPhone 3G.
Played a quick game this morning. I started Denard because the read option is damn fun this year. In Iowa City, down by 3 with a minute left I decided to put Tate in because I needed a game winning drive. Dinking and dunking down the sideline until Hemmingway came open over the middle. Threw a dart that hit him at the 40, he dove in to the endzone with a saftey on his back. 28-24 Game. Set. Match....freakin' beautiful.
Those asking about rosters, keep an eye on http://www.operationsports.com/forums/ncaa-football-rosters/ Named rosters should be up by the end of the week.
That Tebow cover will be replaced by the Tate Forcier one posted on Spawn of M Zone immediately after I open the game. Only thing better would be if you print a new disc cover.
