Monday Chat, September 16


The weekend is over and it's back to work for most of us, although with GTA V releasing tomorrow some of you may already have another day off planned.

So is that the case? Has anyone managed to free their Tuesday in order to play GTA V tomorrow? How are you mentally preparing yourself for one of the biggest game releases of the year?

If you aren't playing GTA V tomorrow then tell us why? Are you stuck at work or is it just not your thing?

Let's Chat!

I've got the whole week off, and then some. Burnt out at work, so I needed a break. It just so happens that one of the biggest titles of the decade is launching this week. I literally cannot wait to sink my teeth into this game.

At work all day. May go on it for a few hours. Found my SNES last night and got a bunch of cheap games from ebay. More excited for them. Got a 3 day weekend however so.... Honestly will likely be back on Kingdom Hearts by Wednesday. I do have a day off for Wind Waker and a three day weekend for Pokemon next month tho

Wind Waker HD does look awesome, was having a look at some comparison videos with the original last night, and it's not just an HD remake, it's been well improved and looks absolutely gorgeous. Can't believe the yanks are getting it next week with an early digital release to go with the console bundle and we aren't, oh well, only 2 and a half weeks to go.

Did anyone get there order from Amazon or Game over the weekend would be interesting to know and see if Rockstar do anything about it.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Had a change of heart, got nothing much to play for the next couple of weeks and plenty of Amazon vouchers to cover it, so I ordered GTA.

Just noticed on Amazon, they're still taking orders saying it's available, but there's a little box further down saying that orders made after the 13th will have to wait for new stock.

I think it is wierd that because you normally get a game early ,that people start expecting to get the game early on every order. This is GTA loads of people have this ordered just wait.

Not really ironic when the publisher on big releases like this have started saying 'dispatch earlier than 1 day before release and we won't won't deliver the next title to your warehouse before release day'
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I'll say it again. Shopto is respecting the wishes of Rockstar cos if they don't they could be blacklisted by Take-Two & this is different than the COD Ghosts situation cos Activision don't what Shopto to dispatch the game till release.

would people just stop this moaning about gta orders its not a right that you must have it early just get over it , it arrives when it does its not out till tomorrow! all a bunch of school kids like on amazon and twitter

Think I might just cxancel my order with Amazon, apparently they have been quoting delivery by October the 30th for orders made after the 13th, I wasn't that bothered about it anyway.

Shopto sends me Rome 2 4 days early (of course I couldn't play it due to steam DRM) but wait until the latest moment to send GTA V, people preorder here for the fast deliveries or are you forgetting?

October the 30th is quite a bit away, would not wait that long for it either.

JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Shopto don't specifically send games out 2days early to guarantee you it early vanner, Royal Mail first class takes 1-2 days delivery but usually comes after 1 so they send it out to guarantee you get it on release date that's all.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Blame Rockstar not Shopto & don't even pull the "Aww but other places like Amazon already sent it out" that's cos Amazon are too big to be blacklisted, Shopto aren't

on topic: haven't pre-ordered GTA V, not that bothered about it. just can't seem to get any enthusiasm about it, think because I got bored of GTA IV after a while and so don't have massive expectations for V, though reading a few reviews might change that. although I have to admit I saw an advert for it on the tv the other night and I did think "hmm maybe I want this game" ha.

Sorry for the rant but I still can't believe the abuse Shopto and others are getting over Twitter just because their game didn't arrive today, do these people actually know the game is officially released tomorrow? and maybe I shouldn't but I'd laugh my backside of if the people moaning didn't get their copies tomorrow. God forbid some of these people had a real crisis to deal with, I dread to think how they would cope! .... Anyway, looking forward to seeing the reviews for GTA5, should start appearing in just under an hour now :)

When games get a Mon / Tue release date and they are sent before the weekend I do not usually get them until Wed / Thu because of royal Mail and the weekend, but if the games get despatched on Mon, they turn up on Tue. If it got dispatched beforehand, they would more likely not arrive tomorrow. Lately the post has been arriving late, like about 3pm or so, so I would not take Tues off work as most of the day would probably bw waiting for it to arrive, but possibly the Wed and / or Thu and Friday, to guarantee getting it by then. Unless I bought the digital download which should be released to play / download from 00:01 on Tu 17th. This is the game designed to help digital downloads. Shame it is not on the Xbox Games Store yet, but it is on the PSN store for preorder.

I didn't pre order because I have lost a bit of interest in GTA lately, but I will probably end up picking it up at some point. Also want to read the reviews too before I decide if I want to get it. What are people's thoughts about Beyond Two Souls? I have it pre ordered and was just wondering if many other people do too.

its been addressed on twitter, due to the scale of dispatch this time round (and on a Saturday), not all orders have pictures. tbh no other retailer does it so no real trauma there

I didn't know if Beyond Two Souls would be popular or not because I haven't seen anyone talk about it much on here. Also it got a bit of bad press about the controls, but that hasn't put me off.

Now you know you can't trust Shopto to deliver if it's a big title on time and hold them back in fear of being "told off" meanwhile losing faithful costumers who assumed you would get it at least a day early. Meanwhile people who pirated or ordered from amazon got it 3 days before and are already spoiling it, look's like I won't be ordering anymore big titles here.
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
lol what? Shopto have been brilliant for titles. Only ever not had one title not come on release date and that was because it got lost. Tuesday hasn't happened yet. If its not there tomorrow then fair enough. And for the record Amazon are usually abysmal at getting stuff on release. 9/10 times they dispatch late the night prior. Good luck on stealing your games in the future. You are a beacon of the gaming industry. Have a medal.

They do. If you paid the extra for it then you get it. (dunno if it's free on bigger items.) I think people have the misconception that because Shopto usually get games earlier then they will on this....despite that shopto themselves said they weren't dispatching till later.

yeah the tracking numbers are usually for after they have been sorted to the vans for postage chill you will get your game. I am sorry but if a game coming early is such a big deal you need to get a grip. I have never not had a game delivered on time from here and I have 85 completed orders on this site. As long as the game is delivered or an attempt to deliver the game has been made on day of release then they have fulfilled their duties. Other places have not sent them early just amazon and they are being investigated for it http://www.videogamer.com/xbox360/gta5/news/gta_5_early_sales_being_investigated_by_rockstar.html.
