I phoned Game Ltd this morning. They said they were getting it today, but it's scheduled for release tomorrow... However, they did say that they'd sell me a copy today

Hope they do get it in today.

If you do get it today, do you mind posting in here so I can try dropping in on my local Game store to see if I can get it on the way home?

Manteau

Hmmmm, your lucky, the Leeds Game seem reluctant to do that. In the past I've had a assistant say, "Well you can look at the box now and I'll sell you it tomorrow..."

Fortunately, the game in question was Gunship! So I wasn't overly bothered

I sure will post my initial review of it, and yup it's gonna be a late night.

The manager at Game agreed (after a little persuasion ), to sell me a copy. What's gonna happen is; I'll bung him the money, and he'll ring it through the till tomorrow.

HAHAHA...I got mine here too

Apparently some half-wit shop assistant here in Wolverhampton got his dates mixed up and put the game on sale this morning, so every retailer in the City has followed suit.

I might as well go home now, as my productivity has just completely dropped - no point working any more

I can't see me getting much sleep this weekend...

Yorkshire Tea, Manteau and all,

Game Ltd policy is not to sell it until the release date. However, if another company breaks that agreement (i.e. HMV, etc) and sells the game, then Game are allowed to sell it before the release date as well.

I didn't wanna say where I got mine from, due to me kind of protecting the store manager. But seeing as Platy has picked a copy up as well, then what the hell

I'm only 40 miles away from you YT, just over the Pennines in Manchester. Go tell 'em in Leeds that the whole country is selling it and you want your copy today

Likewise, Manteau go and do the same in Dorset (hell, even print this post out and take it to 'em).

P.S. YT, I used to live in Leeds for around 7 years, I still work over there frequently at Albion Tower in the city centre.

LOL!! :=)

I've spent all afternoon plotting how I'd get the game if they didn't sell it to me.

By the time I leave work all the shops will be closed, so I'll have to get it tomorrow

Couldn't scan some pages from the manual and upload them could you :=)

Cheers,
Manteau

Manteau,

Isn't Thursday a late night shopping day?

Or alternatively, feign a sudden bout of sickness and leave work early

P.S. The manual has had me tripping down memory lane with a tear in my eye, kinda like an improved version of F22adf/TAW... still reading it.

Dunno - is Thursday??

In fact, I feel rather faint and upset as other people now have the game and I don't

jgalante,

Box outer skin has a pick of the Typhoon on the front, on the back 6 pics from the game with various quotes around 'em. Inside that is a black box, inside that is a 104 page manual, CD case with inserts and a keyboard command card. There are some great pics of the actual Typhoon in the manual, the controls are basically the same as TAW.
