Wow...I'm not really sure what to think. I placed my order on the 19th, like many of you. I got a "shipment confirmation" email later that day, but I've yet to receive my game. As always, USPS's "tracking" is worthless and doesn't tell me anything.

I live in NC, so I thought it might take a while, but since almost everybody else has gotten theirs, I'm starting to wonder what's going on. I would think my order didn't go through (new customer and paid with Paypal), but I did get the shipping email. If I don't get it tomorrow, I might give them a call.

Placed mine on the 15th as well, same boat that you're in.

Just don't worry about it. Dirt cheap shipping is supposed to take a while, and it was a pretty high demand item. It's only been 3 business days so far, and dirt cheap is supposed to take 7-15, whether others have been getting it already or not.

Just relax.

We're in the same boat. Damnit this is the GQD debacle with Vesperia LE all over again. Not that I want to play this game badly but still.

Finally! After being in the process stage since the 19th,
Alone In The Dark was shipped to me earlier today, but not before sending a message to customer support and waiting over 26 hours for a response. The factory it is being shipped from isn't very far from my city(Santa Clara to SF). Lets see how long it takes to get here.

Got the backorder email a few days ago but, today, was notified that both products ordered (AiTD and UT 3 PC) were shipped.

Relax; It's only the internet.

I got mine on Monday. Impressive since being in VT it usually always takes a week to get to me even from New York. My mailman must have woken up....

Damn its already here, that IS pretty fast. But it would probably still be in the process stage if i hadn't sent them a message LOL. Its a damn shame some of you couldn't get your order though.

I'm posting this now before I go out to check my mail, in the hopes that what usually happens will happen. I STILL haven't gotten my damn AitD yet! You guys must have gotten "dirt cheap express" and I got "dirt cheap bicycle messenger" or something. I realize it still hasn't been a week, but I just can't rationalize in my head why some people got it in like 2 days...even on the east coast, and mine has taken 6 and counting.

EDIT: Haha! Works like a charm! In your face mail gods!!! I tricked you! You didn't make me look like an idiot this time! Woohoo! Never thought I'd be so happy to get a crappy $10 game, haha. Actually, I don't think this game is THAT bad. I played the demo and thought some things could have been done better, but I still like the idea of it. Plus, I'm a survival whore (see what I did there?). When Amazon had this game for like $24 a couple weeks ago, I said it would drop. Glad I waited! Can't go wrong for $10 :D

Got mine like 2 or 3 days ago. Ordered it when the posting first went up. The game is pretty bad. I'm not sure I can tolerate it all the way through. Oh well, was $12 and some change after shipping.

I was able to get mine today! The day after I got the email saying it was shipped. So I am guess that GoGamer uses a different location since no way got here (N. VA) from Cali in a day.

Ordered Friday at around 5pm, received today. All is good...except the case is cracked. The game is easily worth $10.

I'm not pissed or worried about the game or anything, but I would like to take this opportunity to hate on USPS tracking. I basically use it only to know when something has shipped, which means it's definitely coming. The tracking itself is usually useless; I've had the "processed and left our Santa Ana, CA facility" message since early Tuesday or so. No updates.

Usually in this situation, at some point I go home and it is waiting for me, then I check the tracking info and there is a ton of daily info on the package that has magically appeared for the past week.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I'm actually more excited to get the controller and not the game.

well I ordered from the new sale, and they rate super cheap shipping at 7-14 days.... really covering their butts if it's really slow.

Mine just arrived yesterday (26th), ordered on the 19th - although it seemingly didn't ship until the 23rd (as the tracking number confirms), so it took about 3 days to ship from CA to NJ.

Mine arrived today. I ordered on Friday the 19th. LittleBIGPlanet is taking up most of my gaming time right now and my 360 backlog is rather large, so I probably won't get around to playing right away. Hopefully, when I do the patch will be out.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to the tc for the post. Good deal!

I'm not sure how many are in the same boat as myself, but I have yet to receive my order, which I placed and was given confirmation the same day the sale went live. My order was not shipped until the 23rd and since receiving a tracking number I have not received new information on its location except that it was shipped from Bell, CA.

I know dirt-cheap shipping can take awhile but considering everyone else has been getting theirs and rather quickly...makes me a bit pissed off and nervous.

So I know that technically shipping can take up to 14 days, but I still haven't received my items. Apparently they shipped my controller and game via Media mail, though the few times I've tried to ship anything similar I've been forced to ship it via First Class, so I'm wondering how GoGamer is able to do this?

Either way I know I paid for snail mail, but now I'm going to have to tell my nephew I don't have his birthday gift. Guess I'll know better next time...

So I FINALLY got my package. I'm happy that I received it, however this company must not believe in bubble wrap or package peanuts because my controller and game were rattling around in the box.
