    Okay, so my laptop can run the Spore DVDrom and regular CDs. Can anyone explain why the hell it is not reading the WOTLK dvdrom?

    Upside down?

    But no, there isn't really a logical explanation for that. Dodgy disc perhaps.

    Line at Gamestop was at least 50 people. Walmart next door, was about 10. Guess where I went.

    No CE, but whatever, Whiskers is still the best pet.

    Also, you'd think with their billions, blizzendi could afford jewel cases instead of cheap ass paper sleeves.

    If his walmart was like mine, they ran around for an hour after telling a line of angry nerds that they didnt have any copies despite advertising it. Once told that eirlier that day customers saw shopping carts full of the game around the store but were turned down to buy, the story changed to "sorry cant find them" so 25 people bum rushed the gamestop across the street.

    Dammit I am freaking out that they will not have the CE at the places I will be going. I am not even worried if I play this night I just want CE. So far read that local Target is rumored to run out and its not 12am. Dam hysterical people are making me get worried.

    Heya guys... wondering if you could help me out. I'm helping some friends install this and they don't have a DVD drive at all. Blizzard's digital download program seems to be borked and, of course, no one on their website knows what the heck is going on. Does anyone here know how to get a reliable download of this elsewhere? We have bought everything legally, but can't play if we can't get the data. Thanks beforehand.

    I don't think its possible to "illegally" download the WoW client, given you are paying for the CD key.

    Not sure where to find it, though.

    I went to my local Wal-Mart at 9pm. They had 6 copies of the CE. 3 were claimed when I got there. I immediately claimed one for myself (numbered chairs) and 2 seconds later 5 guys walked in and claimed the rest. I was SO stoked.

    Also, the art book has a drawing of a troll wearing boots. Like, on her feet. Hah!

    Yeah, my wal-mart got six copies and apparently, 110 regular. When I got there at like 11, there were like twenty people, and more every minute I was there talking to a dude I know.

    I went to my Eb and there was like 30 people as of 11:30. I was able to get a CE because they got some extra so I talked to my friend earlier and asked him to hang onto one for me:)

    We'll see if he's still sold out when I get my cup of joe in the morning.

    I called a few 7-11's around here. Man there are some frustrated 7-11 clerks out there tonight.

    "Is this about that game!?" "I DON'T HAVE IT YET!"

    ....

    "YES WE SHOULD HAVE IT TONIGHT"

    I thought I was being clever with the whole 7-11 thing, apparently i'm not the only person in San Diego who has figured out that "secret".

    Same ;(. Which 7-11 said they had it? Apparently there's one in Imperial Beach that has some.

    Do I need to read more McNinja? I think the last I saw his family was getting attacked by pirates or something...

    It's from the McNinja store. Based off of this page, presumably. Haven't seen any sharks high-fived in the comic that I can recall offhand.

    That confer nothing but an imaginary badge of poopsockery.

    There were probably 100-120 people at my Gamestop. I was #25 in line. Went in around 10PM to get my payment verified and get a ticket to come back at midnight to pick up the game with.

    And, in between, I went upstairs to my theater and watched the new Star Trek trailer that'll be on Quantum of Solace this weekend.

    Went to the EB Games in Pacific Center in Vancouver. Was first in line, even though when we were first let in some douchebag tried to cut in. Tried. Failed. Home now installing the patches and anticipating. Still a little pissed that even though I was told there would be no chance of getting a CE through EB, suddenly Future Shop has them for sale. Lovely.

    I got lucky... downtown Seattle has two EB's within a block of each other. I went to the Westlake store, which had about 150-200 people in the preorder line. I was towards the end, but it only took about a half-hour.

    The Pacific Place store had over 400 people in line, and one of the registers wasn't working.

    I missed my bus, so I walked home and got home exactly when the next bus was due to arrive downtown. :^:

    How'd you get that? I didn't see any of that when I upgraded.

    Right after inputting the cd key it showed a picture that said something to the effect of "Account Upgraded." I happened to mouseover it and it was clickable, so I did and that image popped up.
