The article that was just posted says hobby stores will get the game as early as next week.

Is this true?

And if it is true, when will those of us that already pre-ordered on the Cryptozoic online store get our copies? Is there an actual date yet when we can expect our mailperson to bring it?

Oh sweet. Just in time for my son to be gone for a week. :( I was planning on playing with him right away. Little turds running off to Disney World with his Grandma.

On FB, Cryptozoic said the launch date is Nov 30, which is this Friday! WOOT! Though, they didn't specify if that means pre-orders will be arriving at people's houses that day, or if that's when they'll be shipping them out. Either way, we should be seeing the game either this weekend or next week! Woot and double woot! SO excited to play this game!

If you check the e-store it says pre-orders are being shipped on release date, so Saturday at the earliest depending on where you live.

Which then begs the question, where do Cryptozoic games ship from? I know their offices are in California. Is it safe to assume they ship new games from there too? If so, I probably won't get mine until NEXT saturday (I live in Virginia Beach, VA)

So... It supposedly hit stores on Friday and those of us who pre-ordered should (according to Cryptozoic on their FB page) get ours between the middle and end of next week. Have they been shipped yet? If so, I've not recieved any confirmation of shipment. Anyone else?

Definitely has not yet shipped for me. That's actually kind of a bummer to hear knowing I can go to my local game place and purchase it right now. Figured pre-ordering meant, you know, as soon as it was available.

Or at the very least shipping out on the release date like they said at one point.

I haven't received any shipping notice either. Nor have they taken the game off Pre-Order in their online store.

Apparently they've had a delay getting them to their offices to send them back out. Stores that have them must have gotten them directly from distributors or something.

Sad sad news indeed... At this rate, people just picking it up from the FLGS I frequent will have it before I do even though I was one of the first people to pre-order

I'm tempted to just buy it at a local store then sell or return my pre-order copy.

I must say I am a little disappointed with how this whole thing was handled. I would be willing to forgive the constant delays, but leaving everyone who pre-ordered out of the loop kind of irritates me. A simple email explaining the situation would have been nice.

I am dissapointed too.The game released last friday , and here it is wed and my game just got shipped today, which means I wont get it untill friday or saturday.Bummer, I thought pre ordering would get it to me on release day.People who just went it got it off the shelf got it before me and I paid for mine months ago, Guess once they have your money they dont care anymore.Never doing that again.

I haven't gotten an e-mail, but I just checked my order and it says it shipped yesterday or at least submitted the tracking info. It estimates mine will be here by Friday.

I got mine today also. The emails are probably being sent today as we speak, of course not all at the same exact moment though.

Especially since I've seen it for sale other places for $25 and the Cryptozoic Store charged $40 plus shipping. I could have had it by now and saved $25. I don't think the Martian Manhunter was worth it.

They are never going to undercut MSRP when they sell it directly. They don't want to take business away from LGS. Unfortunately the promo made some people order directly from them, but that was before we knew that LGS were going to be able to get them. While I would have loved to have it already, especially by tomorrow, it's only an extra week. I'll live.

Well, from now on I know to just get the games through my FLGS instead of pre-ordering from the site. I figured pre-ordering would mean I'd get the game either when or before my FLGS got it.... not after. I'm very disappointed by the way this has gone down, and this will be the only time I ever pre-order from here again.

They said they had to wait to receive them themselves.

that does not make sense though... FLGS already got the game. The FLGS I frequent has had it on the shelf since yesturday, and according to the tracking number with my confirmation I won't get it until Saturday. They couldn't ship out pre-orders when they shipped out FLGS copies?!

Scratch that... I just checked the shipping update... NOW the estimated arrival is Tuesday! This is STUPID! I could litterally go buy a copy from my FLGS right now... but instead having to wait until almost a week after they get it to get mine! :( Is there someone I can punch for this?!

It is possible that the game went right from manufacturer to a distributor. It was most likely shipped to LGS from distributors. Crypto's copies probably came from a distributor as well, but it sounds like they had an issue with their shipment.

I picked up my copy from my LGS today, but they said they didn't get any Martian Manhunters. (Although the employee I asked didn't seem that interested in actually checking. I don't want to throw out any names, but this store gives much better service as a web store than their physical storefront.)

Now I'm going to have to check ebay to track down a Martian Manhunter and will probably end up paying the same as those who ordered from the Cryptozoic store.

Received my pre-order earlier today. I probably got it so quickly since it looks like it shipped from Anaheim which is about a two hour drive from where I live. Still mildly bummed out it didn't ship day and date with its release like I was hoping it to, but I'll live.

Now was it worth the wait?

...I, I don't know. I haven't got to play it yet. I'll try to round up some of my friends this weekend and make my judgment then.

Hope everyone receives their game soon.

definitely won't be arriving early for me... as of right now, it's only as far as Chicago... still has 1/2 the country to go! :( Guess I really WON'T be getting mine until Tuesday. What a total bummer this has turned out to be.

I don't mind the wait either. However, like I said before, I wouldn't have minded any of this if they had just kept us in the loop. A quick email explaining the situation would have been enough to satisfy me.

I preorder the game November 11th, and and received an email on the 13th saying my ordered had shipped but it did not list a tracking number. From reading through the threads the game wasn't released until the 30th, I see that some of you have tracking numbers, were they sent in a new email or how did you find it. This is my first experience with Cryptozoic so any help would be appreciated.

SERIOUSLY!? So, the package technically came today... about 10 minutes after I left for work... and the moron driver decided that instead of leaving it at the door step, to instead take it with him for a re-delivery tomorrow. GAH! And we were throwing a game night tonight specifically around me getting this game!!!!! I hate stupid people!

Dude, I'm so sorry to hear. :( On the bright side, the wait will be over soon, and trust me when I say this game is well worth the wait. Patience, buddy.

It's great. A couple people in the group like it better than Ascension... which is saying something (I think Ascension is a little bit better... but only barely). GREAT job on this game! Can't wait for expansions to start rolling in... Though, I'm still shocked that Doomsday is a villian and not a super villain... I mean.. HE KILLED SUPERMAN!!!!!!
