    Dudes it was so hard to explain to my mum to concept of steam as a platform, and pre-loading game files so I can play it the instant it's released internationally (3am local time)

    The look she gave me was priceless, you know the one I mean.

    Just tell her its like getting a Christmas present in July, no matter how bad you want to open it, you just can't. The present you could, but in this case its impossible.

    another friend of mine (who didn't bother telling me he was buying it on the PC) already has it installed and is exploring! Fucking Steam! Let us play already! I paid for this game in full 3 weeks ago! :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    It's such a kick in the nuts to steam users that they broke the street date.

    It makes me a sad panda :(

    I guess from this point on I just have to cross my fingers and hope my friend from the UK can join me so he and I can play together. Otherwise I will have waited 4 extra days to play for nothing!

    What country are you in, I'll be playing as soon as it's ready but only with 2 others, we could use a 4th, but no offense - only if the ping is tolerable.

    What's the dfference between if i get this game on steam and the game in the boxed version? Cause I have already pre-ordered this for PC and its coming on Friday to my house, will the online playing be shared with people who brought it for steam? So if i didnt buy it on steam and brought it from online or retail store, will i be playing online with people who brought it for steam?

    Im pretty cut right now, and incredibly awake for 3am.

    tbh I wasn't really following it myself, I was relying on the other guys that went in on the 4 pack to know that.

    oh well, if i cant do anything it's not worth my rage.

    Ima go force lightening some disciples of Ragnos.

    Don't feel too bad wolf, it's 12:02 and the game is still unavailable to play in the US via Steam. My timer still says 1 hour. I keep reading various reports both on the Steam and Gearbox forums that the game won't be out till 3pm PST.
    wolf says thanks.

    Well maybe getting it 3 days late will be better for game enjoyment, in terms of bug fixes and what nottery.

    lol lets hope so...i've also read that liliths assassin tree is bugged in the later and that phase strike doesn't do anything above normal melee dmg on the consoles. i hope that got fixed for the PC release.

    If you guys can't get it to launch "game is not available" then restart steam and you should be good to go.

    Loading up now!
