So for those of you who are on the east coast will the coming Hurricane going to effect getting your copy of AC3?

I pre-order my copy in the city, Manhattan, so I may not get my copy due to transportation being stopped.

I'm in Philly. I tried to get the kid at Target yesterday to be a bro and break the street date. No dice.

If I have power on Tuesday, I'll probably try to go buy it. If not, I'll wait until it comes back.

So many grammatical and syntactic errors... can't... resist... making comment on it...

#5 Posted by solidwolf52 (295 posts) -

In MA, ordered from amazon...I'm less than optimistic about getting it on Tuesday

You should probably fix your priorities for the impending storm.

#7 Posted by allworkandlowpay (874 posts) -

Gamestops are closed Monday night. Likely Tuesday as well.

How would you even play it? If you're in the line of this storm, you need to expect to be without power for a few days. I hope you've gotten food and water (canned/bottled), CASH (SUPER FUCKING IMPORTANT), and batteries/flashlights...

#13 Posted by gumdealer (96 posts) -

The obvious answer here is to buy every copy of AC3 and use it as a form of currency in areas without power.

Mate, you have bigger problems to deal with. Just feel lucky that you know it's coming.

#15 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

I'd love to see a thread like this during World War 3

#16 Posted by DukesT3 (1853 posts) -

I'm curious to know about pre-orders from like GameStop since they give you 48hrs to pick it up? I'm sure they'll still let you get it whenever or refund whatever you put down on it.

I was in Houston during hurricane Ike which I'm sure was nothing compared to Sandy but still.. good luck duders and god speed.

It's all Ubisoft's scheme! The game is going to be wildly inaccurate but all the historical evidence to prove it as such is kept on the east coast and will be destroyed by the hurricane.

I'm in the Bronx. My copy is at Best Buy on Fordham but if it's not windy on Tuesday, I'm picking it up. But if it's not windy, that'll mean I have classes.

@murisan: @moffattron9000: @Animasta: @DarthOrange:

I highly doubt we'll lose power and all that shizz. We had a hurricane last year here in NY and it came and went. Only the urban parts of NY were flooded. Didn't lose power or anything for where I live.

#22 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

@awesomeusername: Dude, look at the news. This is the first storm since 1991 that has had the conditions to form "the perfect storm." Just... be careful, alright? It's always better to be overprepared than under.

I hate that this is what I think of whenever I hear the word hurricane, which is weird because I never really liked him.

Don't confuse sensationalism with an accurate metric. The storm has the very slim potential of turning into something very big ("Frankenstorm") but by most meteorological reports, we are experiencing a pretty typical CAT 1 Hurricane. It's not the end of the world - some places will get flooded, tree branches will cause some sparse property damage and road obstructions, stores will be closed, power may go out in some places.

Don't fuel the scare tactics.

#25 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

@allworkandlowpay: Okay bro. Whatever you wanna believe. The point is that this hurricane cannot be accurately predicted because we lack computer models for something like this in the current status of the ocean currents/temperatures. I'm not buying into media "sensationalism," I'm buying into science. But hey, if you think it's NBD, go ahead, get drowned.

Down here in Christchurch everyone told us that after the September quake that there probably wouldn't be one that big again. In February last year we got a much worse one. Never discount the idea of it getting worse, and just take care of yourself.

#27 Edited by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

I live in such an area where I'm almost certainly going to be one of the last ones to get their power back, based on the population density, or lack thereof, of my area. I live in a town (a "village," technically) of less than a hundred people, for what it's worth.

At least I have a reasonably decent generator, I guess.

Back on topic, though. Even if I wanted to drive out in a hurricane and get AC3, everything is going to be completely flooded in my area. That was the case with Irene, at least.

I don't think you understood what I said.

#29 Posted by gla55jAw (2682 posts) -

I'm on Long Island and have it ordered from Amazon. I don't know if UPS is going to be delivering, plus I probably won't have power by later tonight.

#30 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

@allworkandlowpay: I'm pretty sure I did, but I admit I was drinking last night. That being said, I read " The storm has the very slim potential of turning into something very big ("Frankenstorm") but by most meteorological reports, we are experiencing a pretty typical CAT 1 Hurricane. It's not the end of the world - some places will get flooded, tree branches will cause some sparse property damage and road obstructions, stores will be closed, power may go out in some places."

I'm not saying we should call it frankenstorm, that's stupid shit, but I AM saying that people should prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Is that not a good idea?

Yeah, never lost power where I'm at either. Although, I think by the time it got to us it had been downgraded to a tropical storm.

#32 Posted by Lord_Xp (599 posts) -

I'm in Ohio and we are hit with a lot of rain and high winds also, granted it's nothing like being on the coast thankfully. But I'll still be going to the midnight release because the lines are going to be short due to the weather plus I get off work right next to Gamestop anyways. My luck there will still be a lot of people and my theory is actually shitty.

#34 Posted by awesomeusername (4059 posts) -

@murisan: Looking out the window now and there's only a small wind going by. Nothing bad. The worse that will happen is a couple trees go down if the wind speeds up later. That's what happened last year. Trust me, where I live, I'm safe. Now the suburbs are a different topic entirely. If it actually starts pouring, there streets will get flooded and they'll lose power because that's what happened to them last year. I'm sure I'm safe.

@moffattron9000: I was on the toilet when that quake happened last year. I only felt a tiny tremor but I was confused.

@NegativeCero: Where are you? The worse we got, as said above, was a couple trees blown down here up in the Bronx.

#35 Posted by Getz (2955 posts) -

Mine's being shipped, so I'm guessing it'll be quite a delay on that getting to me. Oh well, I probably won't have power for a while anyway so it doesn't matter. Fuck nature.

#36 Posted by Mushy46 (13 posts) -

Thank God I moved from the East Coast to California. I will have mine at midnight.

There's a difference between preparing for a worst case scenario (within reason ) and falling into a fear-induced panic. I'm hearing a lot of people acting like this is the worst storm to ever hit the area, and the news is propagating it. Be prepared, but don't fall into the fear, is all I'm saying.

#38 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

@allworkandlowpay: I agree. Def. think it's a good idea to have some canned food, bottled water, cash and batteries. But, that's just solid advice.

You're fine.

Almost forgot we have that continuously playing in the background over here, I feel fine now.

#41 Posted by NegativeCero (2928 posts) -

@awesomeusername: Suffolk County on Long Island. I do remember there were some areas who did lose power for a while, just not in my area.

I called the Gamestop in Manhattan my copy is pre-ordered at a little earlier to see if they'd have them tomorrow. No one's there. This shit is weird, man.

I just checked amazon is not sending my order until november 1st! (I'm in MA too) I chatted with them online to make sure it was about the storm and the lady online claimed it was because the demand for the item was high and I have 2 day shipping so they are shipping it 2 days after release, which is total bullshit I always get release date shipping, so I'm thinking the lady didn't know what she is talking about and it is because of the storm. Otherwise amazon screwed me good. This sucks.

#45 Posted by solidwolf52 (295 posts) -

@CJduke: I actually received an email this morning saying that mine had shipped and was expected to be delivered tomorrow. Where about in MA are you? I'm only a half hour west of Boston. Maybe depending on the area the shipping is different.

#46 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4282 posts) -

I was getting it on PC so it won't be out for a while and even if it was same day I would have had it already preloaded and ready to be unlocked come midnight thanks to Steam.

#47 Posted by firecracker22 (522 posts) -

It's too bad. Where I'm at, in Yonkers, the storm doesn't seem as bad as the boroughs or the other counties. But, I've tried calling my gamestop store...and they don't even pick up. So, they're probably closed for today. And with the state of alert up for tomorrow as well, I wouldn't be surprised to see if they don't open until Wednesday. Halloween.

#48 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3597 posts) -

This plus a test for school are going to make me miss out on this until the weekend. Make no mistake I will be getting this by the weekend though. So excited.

#49 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

Local place will be open weather permitting.

#50 Posted by firecracker22 (522 posts) -

Makes sense. I probably call at around 9, just in case. And if not, call and see if tomorrow is possible. If not, then I'll just have to wait.

No dice.
