    Fuck, too late again.

    I don't think it's physically possible for me to fill things in again quick enough.

    I mean jesus, just loading the first checkout page was too late, already sold out.

    Well I've given them all my details, so now I just have to enter my cards security number and click Proceed. Well, it sounds simple in theory...

    If you register all your details first the only thing you need do is put in the card verification number from the back (at least with Switch anyway).

    Not that it seems to help as I zoom through to checkout but then the confirm order page takes forever to load by which time it's all gone.

    I missed out this time, but there is a pattern emerging-

    12:00 - DSlite White
    13:00 - DS game
    14:00 - DS game
    15:00 - DSlite White
    16:00 - DS game
    17:00 - DS game
    18:00 - DS Black
    19:00 - DS game?

    looks like 21:00 might be a DSlite Black again? then who knows?

    The first DS was black, so it'll be white next time, if that pattern holds.

    If this is anything like the 360 deals they had - they will stop at midnight.

    I missed out on all of those, I'm not going to even try to get these ones.

    This thread needs an IRC channel for 57 minutes of bitching every hour followed by a silence tinged with the background noise of pure panic.

    Or something. I want a £50 Lite :(

    First time I went for a Lite I didn't have my debit card security code thing to hand. Second time the bastard website had logged me out. Third time, they just went too damn quick. Next time, I will be victorious!

    But obviously to make that into a viable anecdote you have to tart it up a bit.

    I checked out perfectly my first time, everything was correct. And then it just sent me back to my fucking basket. So I rechecked out, and then it said my basket was empty. I assume I missed it, FUCK I WANT TRAUMA CENTER.

    I feel I'm karmically owed it as I almost went out and bought it this lunch time but held off on the chance it might pop up in the sale. You know, that and I'm awesome so all good things should come to me by divine right :P

    I was at the end of the checkout, then just emptied the basket. I don't think Trauma Center is worth the mental trauma it would give me.

    I hope the next game is something I want. Does anyone have a list of the ones that have already gone? We've had AC, Brain Training, NSMB and Nintendogs so far?

    I've already done that. The next hour had better be a good one, as I'm missing the next 3 hours after that.
