Thanks, kcobra.  I placed two orders, one for store pickup and one for shipping.    My home store was showing 2 left, which is why I did the shipping order, since we all know how Target fucks up online orders with wrong items being shipped. 

 

We'll see how this plays out and see if my in-store pickup order gets fulfilled.

There were only two left at my store and as in-store pickup promises it within 2 hours, I thought there was a reasonable chance it would be out of stock by the time they picked it. 

 

REDCard = no shipping charges, which is why I did a shipping order as well.

Spy, check the carrier tracking website for why there's a delay.  

Yeah I guess it was a late UPS trailer arrival. Super bummed as I had to drive my folks to the airport today and then I was expecting the game to be on my front step when I got back.  :wall:

 

Doing strike team shit with APEX HQ lol.

Well, I spent about 6 hours playing the full game, made it off of Hab7 and to the Nexus.    Playing it on Hardcore, the combat had kicked me ass in a few instances, though it's because I was good old level 1 or 2. 

 

Now that I've been in the real game and not the trial, I will have to say it does have a "DA: I wearing Mass Effect covering" feel to it.

Did everyone get their preorder DLC codes?  Best Buy sent me 3 extra codes for some reason.  If you need one, let me know.

Lol, SB from BBY is delayed due to adverse weather conditions. That's probably what happened with my game too. The SB came from Florida lol.

 

Well my "Golf" strike team is at level 11 now and has all enemy specialist, kicking ass! My other strike team, not so much and has a negative trait. Doh!

 

Got my 3rd ST but I can't use them because all I have left to do is silver and bronze, lol which Golf can tackle bronze, Echo not so much.

I picked up my Target Funco, no issues, was the right one.  I also have one on the way from Target.com as it was too late to cancel the order before it went into the shipping process.  So, if someone can't find one in-store or online, let me know and we'll get it figured out. 

 

For strike teams, I have one level 6 and one level 4 and they're winning some and losing some.  I have enough credits to pick up a couple weapons, though I need to go figure out what I might need.

My strike teams are doing well.  Both at level 8.  One has Kett insanity after getting their Turian asses kicked hard, ha ha!  I'm starting to take on silver missions and they're coming home successful.

In multiplayer I used one of the 50% extra XP boosters, rocked the match and got top with like 15000 points as the end game report went to load up the server disconnected and launched be back to the main menu of Andromeda. I went back to multiplayer and that game did not register because my character was at the same level as before.. but of course I am missing the 50% XP Booster. WTF. Ugh.

Yeah I opted to play on Insanity for my first run, and I'm getting straight wrecked. But I'm stubborn so I won't change the difficulty. The difficulty of ME: A pulls no punches.

Finished up Eos on my Sara/XB1 play through last night, really solid planet.


Started up Scott on PS4 and got to the Tempest, went much faster than I expected. Also got 3 of the combat trophies already out of the way which is great so I can focus on the skills I want now.

I'm saving Insanity for a NG+ run, since at Hardcore, it's kicking my ass enough that Insanity would get a controller tossed.

I have to pick up the Tempest and then I'm off that direction.

I got a whole mess of ME-themed care packages in the mail yesterday: artbook, Nexus Uprising novel, Peebee figure, physical copy of the game, and Best Buy steelbook. Still to come: adult coloring book. :)

I got a whole mess of ME-themed care packages in the mail yesterday: artbook, Nexus Uprising novel, Peebee figure, physical copy of the game, and Best Buy steelbook. Still to come: adult coloring book. :)

Yesterday, I had BB SB (x2) show up (thankfully in boxes), one each of PS4 + XB1 Dlx physical copies (one going back because I had to order 2 for Visa Checkout discount, plus it would only add one SB to one copy per order) and both Nomad models.  Art book showed up Monday.   My Target Pebee figured I picked up yesterday, though I also have one on the way that was a backup order for my in-store pickup order going possibly south. 

I have the Kindle book that showed up yesterday as well, I may shelve reading HP & The Deathly Hallows to start reading that book.  I also have the regular CE guide on the way, with the CE artbook waiting to ship from the Bioware store, as well as the Pathfinder guide set, though I think that doesn't ship until next week.  Mini diecast Nomad is still showing no release date yet.

Wait, you're supposed to get one steelbook per order? Never got one for my PS4 copy that I preordered before the promo was added. Did get one for my XB1 deluxe version that I did in the last Visa checkout deal after the steelbook was announced.

If you add in a second copy on the same order, it didn't add in a second SB, even if it was a different platform.

 

I had to order 1x PS4 and 1x XB1 on a single order to get the $100 Visa Checkout discount and the SB would be "attached" to the first item that was added into the order.  So I did one order with 1x PS4 and 1x XB1, with the SB being "attached" to the PS4 copy.  I then did the reverse with 1x XB1 and 1x PS4, with the SB being "attached" to the XB1 copy.

So, when both orders show up, I'll need to return the XB1 copy from the first order and the PS4 copy from the second order and not take the $10/$20 hit for returning the game with the "attached" SB.  Not sure if that was how it was supposed to work, though that's what I figured out on my own. 

 

If you did two separate orders, you should have had a copy per order.

Yeah, they were on 2 separate orders. Guess I'll have to post on the forums and see if they fix it. Not too worried though, happy with the one steelbook especially since it came undamaged.

Okay, this is driving me nuts, because I can't find anything about it. Maybe I'm not far enough in the main game (busy life this week), which would make this obvious.

 

What the heck do the orange icons on some of the missions in Apex HQ mean? I have two with an upwards pointing triple orange arrow.

^ Those are APEX missions, doable by multiplayer match or also by sending your ST out on them.

So It only took me 2 hours to catch up on all my unlocked Codex entries lol.

Yeah I inputted in the code to unlock the Deluxe goodies but I guess that doesn't somatically download them. I was confused and got pissed of when I tried to select a non-selectable terminal where you Access those things, which I had already done from the trial. Also how come I don't see my Pathfinder Henley from those briefings we did (6/6).
