SON OF A....
I just got back from battling the crowds (parking was the worst) at BB for the last DI GOTY. This could have saved me a whole lot of trouble.

Be wary. I just got an email saying that in-store pickup was not available for Dead Island 5 minutes after I ordered it. Arguing with BB at the moment to see if I can still make it happen...

I found that the stock numbers were not matching up with what was available in store. The first store I stopped at had 30 on the system, but none on the floor or in back. So store pickup could indeed lead to more frustration.

They claimed the system was not keeping up with the rush on the stock this morning.

Picked up Dead Island due to the heads up, waiting for the email to say its a go or a no. That was over 15 minutes ago. Thank you for heads up.

UPDATE - Just got email saying they got my order and working to get it ready. Suppose to get another email in the next 45mins saying to pick it up.

I received the email specifying that it was not available at the store. I had to call 1888BESTBUY and it is now available to be shipped free of charge to my house. It did take a long time but the customer service agent was able to make the changes to have it shipped directly to my house. I also got an email saying that it has shipped.

Is Dead Island a good game? It's cheap but my backlog is deep....

I bought the PC version on steam when it was on sale a few weeks ago... In my personal opinion the game is absolutely terrible, and I had buyers remorse after a few hours of playing it.

The map system is VERY bad and confusing. It's really hard to know where you are going from my experience with it. I ended up wandering around aimlessly until just randomly bumping into objectives or more side quests only to be confused to where they wanted me to go.

The weapons in the game are plentiful but feel like they are made out of paper towel tubes, constantly breaking.

This may be only a PC issue, but the interface for inventory and skills and such is REALLY bad and hard to navigate. The mouse sensitivity would change all by itself between screens and the game itself. In the menu it was really slow and I had to turn my mouse sensitivity way up to navigate it, then back down to play the game.

So from my personal experience with the game, no, it's NOT good. I wouldn't pay 2.99 for the PC version or even .99 cents. Maybe the console version is better, but Dead Island left a really bad first impression and I am likely never to pick it up again.

Now that you guys said that it's being able to be shipped to my house...should I call again? or should I wait the 2 days?

If you have some time to spend on hold, I would call as it seems that this title is coming in and out of stock.

Co-op yes. But if you're only playing alone, it's not worth it.

Fun times with best buy CS. I waited for 25mins until someone finally helped me only to have her instantly hang up on me. So I called back and got to wait this time 30mins only to be told his systems were down and call back in a hour. I"ll check the physical store when I'm by it later, either way I cancelled my order no way I'm calling them back.

Dead Island's back in stock via in-store pickup but it's now very YMMV.
