Amazon finally updated my shipping info with an estimated Thursday delivery date. Canceled that, then preordered at Best Buy so I can pick it up tomorrow. I rarely buy games brand new, and even when I do I don't necessarily need it on day one. Dark Souls 2 is a different story. I only wish I took some time off work.
I can't say for sure for you, but I had the same experience, and simply shifted to one day shipping ($3.99)
It's weird. The back half of the game has you take control of a giant Godzilla mech. And you pretty much just stomp around knocking shit down and rebuilding it with rainbow eye beams. You have to eat soldiers to charge your eye beams, but if you accidentally eat a civilian your rainbow beam meter decreases a little bit until the next checkpoint.
Oh sorry, I probably should have spoiler tagged that.
That (the sequence and gameplay requirement) almost sounds silly.
I don't have any really, and I wish I could say something instead of cheating the intent and saying my fav. gaming moment of all time..But I will cheat!!
The 'I am Shodan' monologue in System Shock 2. Visually and audibly, I will never forget the impact of that, as far back and relatively primitive as it was. I had no background in the lore then, but I could sure tell it was dramatic. What a hard-core iron-plated AI villainess bitch.
My all time fav. are a few, but I will sayHalf Life 2 . The couple of others would not be earth shattering to you as far as anything novel.
My fav. for the moment is Demon souls. I am warming up to it, and I am feeling more at home with it as I did Dark Souls, once I get a few level ups under my belt. And in this case a reinforced winged spear.
