View Full Version : PF - Not hide nor hair

10-27-2004, 05:44 PM
Alas, I'm well aware that the DC area is the armpit of the country according to some, I won't dispute that having been a resident for far too long now. However, I've diligently checked each and every day now with Best Buy, Game Stop, EB, Babbages (maybe local, not sure), and Compusa, but no PF to be found. Apparently I'm not the only one checking is the good news for Ubi, since most of them are armed with the denial of availability as if practiced many times prior to my asking, "Yes, we have no Pacific Fighters, check back soon". The female clerks seemingly with a gleen of pleasure in their eyes at the sight of yet another predominently alpha-male game player's dissappointment. Perhaps that is just imagination. Yet, here I sit all dishearted, tried to buy but only..., well you know the rest. One lil fuzzy whiskered feller at Best Buy even suggested that I pre-order it and on November 11, they'd ship it! What a deal. Wait until Zimbabwe is fully supplied, then they'll ship it. Rant, rave, complain, snivvel, and wail. Did I forget whizzed off! Next time, I pre-order from Ubi. One chap in here had his on Monday cause he pre-ordered it from the the company. Good man, next time it'll be me. We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog insanity.

EB ssays mine will be here tommorrow. I pre ordered it. Last time I preorderd was for FB and I used UBI. It was on the shelves localy here for over a week before I got my copy. There is no winning the guessing game on this, You just make a desicion and live with it. One way or the other.

I got mine tonight from EB Games in Va. I preordered..... the guy wasnt supposed to give it to me till tomorrow but he remembered me from FB and the AEP.... I'm sure the fact that I've called him every day for the past 5 may have had something to do with it too. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Local EB Games - tomorrow
Local Babbages (Gamestop) - tomorrow
Local Best Buy - "next Tuesday or Thursday"
Local Circuit City - "Specific What?"
Wal Mart - "Preorder this item today and it should ship on 10/12/2004". Maybe since it's a flight sim it's supposed to transport itself?

ROFLMAO. I know I have a southern accent but I am pretty sure I was CLEAR when I said I wanted to know if they had copies of PACIFIC Fighters in stock at several stores. I can't tell you how many times I got asked"What in the world is SPECIFIC FIGHTERS?!" I finally told someone I didn't freakin know. I had never heard of it. Finally I started callin places saying PACIFIC FIGHTERS You knowlike the OCEAN! One guy says YEA I get it. I AINT stupid ya know! ROFLMAO Dude I feel your pain. EB here is saving me a copy. They get it in tommorrow. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Well, its tomorrow and EB Games hasn't called me yet.

(I always luv them updates, like on Cheaters and stuff). Update: I got mine!!!

The day began like any other, I awoke to the realization I did not as yet have a copy of PF, and that above all else, I MUST HAVE IT! Shaking with persperation beading upon my brow, I viewed my old ragged and torn edge copy of AEP, misty eyed at what may shortly be another relationship replaced by the fruit of another (hey, you want a free story...it's my drama). Slowly I made my way through the normal life threatening road rage and HomeLand Security flasher warnings, dodging pedestrians run down by other motorists to arrive at work. I call, and call and call. Nope, nothing at Best Buy. Nada for EB. Nothing yet at Compusa either. It was beginning to look as if I would end the day with yet another failed effort to locate the coveted PF. Then, on a whimsey I call a Gamestop some 20 miles North. The female voice on the line says yes, "YES" SHE SAID, "we have it". Only one copy however, as only two were ordered and one is reserved. ONLY TWO WERE ORDERED?!?!? Needless to say, without a single animal or pedestrian casuality to show for it, I grabbed, looted really, snatched and ran with my copy (duly paid for ofcourse).

I GOT IT!!! HOT DOGS, oh to get home and install it. But the only two copies bothers me. See, this is what happens when they stop celebrating Halloween in school. What are these kids learning. I must have seen twenty dozen copies of Leisure Suit Larry and Grand Theft Auto on the shelves, and they only had two copies of PF. There should be flight control system PC's at every library from now on.

It's very simple! Come over here and become British! It doesn't take that long to stop talking funny and learn to spell words like 'favour' and 'grey' correctly.

I called about 4 Best Buys here in Atlanta and one said they had 12 copies in stock. The guy went to look for it and lo and behold..................nothing! He said, Oh well, maybe it is in one of the 30 or 40 plastic boxes that came in today. Maybe it will be on the shelves tomorrow. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

Every Gamestop in town has been giving me a blow by blow as they unpack their daily shipments and so far none found it hidden in the dark depths of their deliveries. The kid at the last one said they had about 5 more boxes to go... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Maybe I will stop by a random store on the way home and see if they already stocked it and just didn't bother to tell me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif
