Just saw this intro, it is so good and reminds me a lot the first
2 parts! I love fallout 1+2 and I really hope that the 3d part will
be so good as them. Is little early to say anything more I think,
but the fact I heard again the voice "War, war never changes"
make me really happy :)

erroneously... yeah sure :rolleyes:

They just did a mistake and don't want to admit it.

Actually the second e-mail seem to be the mistake, as the collectors edition is still listed as unavailable. I sent them a snarky note about it.

I'm curious about their answer. :D

Amazon is a big machine with no human being behind it. The Great Alien Invasion of Earth will be handled with spam offers for the latest bestsellers.

Got another email, more thorough and seemingly correct. And with quite a bit of groveling because of their earlier cockups. Seems the collectors edition will be available, and they offered me fastest shipping cost-free. Fair enough.

Now my next project is to get them to institute better English-courses for their Indian (or thereabouts) customer support personnel :D

I don't do "builds" on my first go's at a game :) I do what seems like a good idea at the time. But then I am also a rabid restarter, which frequently leads me to never actually finish games.

Just got X3: Terran Conflict, which I'm playing quite a bit, and won't have as much free time as usual the next month or so, so I considered letting amazon o the hook and only order it with normal postage speed. But naaah...

Do the Fallout games take a long time to finish? I'm considering picking up a good RPG once I'm done with my current game, but my schedule doesn't allow long playing sessions.

They're 5.99 each at GOG.
I'm on Steam and Xbox Live.
