I guess one of the perks of living in Quebec, is being able to get my games on release day. I just wish they were giving the chest with the pre-orders.
Futureshop E3 promo - get up to $20 off for online preorders (June 10-13)

An update, Xbox One received. Both Ryse and DR3 shipped on Friday. Sucks, but what can you do? (kindly read below for a solution). Tearaway showed up!
I really wanted Zoo Tycoon on Day One, but being spoiled with this E3 deal, I rarely buy games full price, so I kept waiting for a deal, far too long. Wednesday night, I realized I'd be paying full price. I decide to pre-order at FS, and hoped it would arrive Day One. An hour later, I had an epiphany. I used the SHOP.CA deal that dtrader69 posted to get KZ and Knack last week (shipped that day, KZ showed up the day after the order, Knack the day following). A $10 coupon and a 20% rebate (through Ebates.ca), effectively make a $60 game, $40. So, I put in the order, intending to return the SHOP.CA copy at FS, to save $20. The SHOP.CA copy showed up on Friday. The FS copy SHIPPED on Friday. As long as the deal holds up and new games get added, I'll be going with this option in the future. I might get burned in the future if games take way longer, but thus far I'm impressed.
Check dtrader69's post. SHOP.CA's $10 coupon plus the 20% Ebates.ca offer match the E3 deal on $60 games, without that pesky "Order 3". And they ship more quickly, in my experience.

With the reviews Shop.ca has been getting, I don't really know If I can bother trusting them.

Oh my. I didn't even look at reviews before ordering. Feedback isn't good, customer service seems abysmal. That's good to know.
I'm going to keep tempting fate until they wrong me.
