It's like we're in an FPS!

Wow. A lot of people have decided to order GalCiv II from us - direct! There are literally thousands of boxes being sent out right now. The corridors are filled with boxes which have more boxes in. It's like an air-raid shelter in here. We're looking into buying more of the building we're in just to store them all.

For those of you waiting patiently, be assured that we are trying to get these boxes out as fast as we can. There is an assembly line of people packing boxes into padded envelopes in the break room. No expense is being spared to keep this workforce happy and productive, up to and including company-sponsored free pizza! Rumours of child labor are purely . . . unconfirmed.

If you've not ordered yet, bear in mind that is probably still faster (and almost certainly cheaper - they pay postage!) to get your box from your local retailer, even if you have to wait a day or so for them to get more stock in. Retail outlets include Walmart, CompUSA, EBGames, Best Buy, GameStop and Circuit City. Don't forget to pIck up a few copies for your friends as well.

HIYa Stardockians
Wel i know every effort is being made, The reason (pure insanity at the time) was to order from the makers.
Why go to a priest , When god is handy, cut out the middle man. All I need is a miracle and maybe I can get mine sooner, hahahahah Where are the transporters when you need them. (use the FORCE. Luke) Well UPS and fedEx lets see what these guys are made of. Take care and pack a piece of pizza in dry ice and send me a slice with my order(no fishie things, everytihing else okay).

So does this mean that if I pre-ordered CDs from Stardock over a month ago that they haven't been sent yet? Not a bid deal to me since I read the manual ages ago and I've been playing since shortly after digital release...the CDs are just a formality to me...but are you sure you want to post something like this that could cause mass hysteria?

HEY I'M HOPING FOR MINE TO AT LEAST BE HERE BEFORE NEXT CHRISTMAS, BUT WHO KNOWS??? IT WAS RELEASE ON THE 21ST, THE ELECTRONIC VERSON ANWAYS, THEY NEVER SAID THE CD WOULD SHIP ON THE DAY!!
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF REALITY.........I HAVE ONE QUESTION!!!
>>HOW COULD YOU NOT KNOW HOW MANY OF THE PRE-ORDERS (CD VERSION) YOU WOULD HAVE, THERE HAD TO BE ODERS TAKEN SHOWING WHICH WAS ELECTRONIC OR CD AND HOW MANY OF EACH THERE WAS? ( DUH) SOMEONE DROPPED THE BALL ON THIS ONE. THE JOKE IS BESTBUY SAYS THEY WILL HAVE IT OUT THIS WEEKEND.(GO FIGURE). SUCH IS LIFE

Hopefully the chances of me getting this game on Saturday or Sunday are good. I'm thinking about skipping Fry's since its a ways out from the rest of the stores listed (gotta think about gas ya know). I downloaded the demo of GC1 since i've always hear about it and never played it. If this game is 10x the first one then I MUST HAVE A COPY.

Someone grab a digital camera and post a picture of Frogboy buried in boxes lol

Look, Stardock has admited they made some errors and the publisher was unable to deal with how fast the game's popularity grew. So yeah, it sucks, but it really is not the end of the world.

Well, if people are going to be hysterical about a computer game that's their call. I tend to think that a few days of anticipation really doesn't matter in the big scheme of things, but perhaps that's just me.

Digital downloaded on 21st with TGN. Upgraded to the CE CD on 22nd. Received the CD's on the 27th. Couldnt have been simpler and big hugs to Kim and all the people involved.
