Never Pre-order from Kmart or for an EA/Bioware game AGAIN!

***UPDATE*** A heaven-sent friend who won't be able to get his copy from Gamestop this week is letting me get his pre-order. He figures (rightly so) that Gamestop won't honor his pre-order for more than a day and will give it to someone else, so it might as well be me, his friend who got screwed by Kmart. I owe you one man! BIG TIME!!!

This past February 7th I managed to pre-order a copy of Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition at The process was easy, straightforward and trustworthy . . . or so I thought.

I decided to check my order status today, since the game was to ship out tomorrow, when to my surprise, I find this:

Not only did the ethically challenged moribund megacorp cancel my pre-order, it did so on February 28, mere days before the game comes out and thus leaving me with no possible way of getting the Collector's Edition.

Could it get any worse? Well, yes it could, thank you for asking: the bastards DID NOT even send me an e-mail to inform me that my pre-order had been cancelled. I only found out because I decided to check its status a few hours ago. Had I not done that, I would have been sitting on my porch like a fucking douchebag waiting for the mailman until 7:00 p.m. before crying myself to sleep really pissed when I found out what happened.

In any case, as a gamer, I am rightfully angry at this situation. As an attorney, I'm fucking pissed now!!!

  1. Now I'm afraid. I pre-ordered my Collector's Edition from Kmart on the 26th of February and it was supposed to arrive between Wednesday and today. I haven't received an email about the item arriving in stores, I haven't been able to track the product, and I haven't been notified a new arrival date. The only good thing is that my product hasn't been cancelled... yet. Thanks for posting this, I'll try to find alternatives to these jerks.
