    I think you'll have luck at any of those retailers. I do however feel you're better off ordering sooner than later to be guaranteed you get it on release day.

    I pre-orderd online - might be a good way to go as well. THey will likely have more units than your local store - besides, carrying that big box home is gonna be a pain! [​IMG]

    I think Camp is referring to this review, although this still doesn't change my mind about the game. BTW, love the new sig Romier [​IMG]

    I think its about the ultimate hardcore gamer's game and if oyu can't buy into the premise (that it's a sim, not an arcade game) you're better off buying Mech Assault. I think people will buy it thinking it's just one of those fun games where you can go around and be shooting stuff in 5 minutes and get really frustrated that they are having problems walking around with their Mech.
