I got mine from them on the 19th. Not sure why you haven't yet. Very Odd!
I'm also upset that I don't get the $5.00 off of Spore because I had already Pre-ordered Spore before the Creature Creator was released. The fine print said the $5.00 off of Spore was only for orders placed after the Creature Creator was released. Crazy! I would just cancel and re-order it, but it would end up costing me more, because I did a special deal to get free one day shipping, if I re-ordered it now I would have to pay full price for shipping and the $5.00 off wouldn't help.

AGH!

I just saw what is most likely one of the stupidest things I've seen on the internet.  There's someone commenting on every review that doesn't explicitly attack Securom that they are an evil EA stooge writing paid reviews.

I just read another crazy conspiracy theory.  There's someone who thinks that EA made up the ten-day activation thing so that the three-day installation wouldn't look bad.

I think EA made a pretty bad mistake by bothering advertising the DRM.  No-one ever buys a game because it has great DRM, unless its LESS intrusive then normal.  I mean come now, have you ever heard someone say, "I heard that xyz game's DRM is really effective at getting rid of piracy, so I bought xyz game."?  It's like telling people eating a hot dog that it's a pig intestine, they'll immeadiately spit it out, call hot dogs disgusting, and you just did something rather rude.

What is the three-day installation thing you mentioned?

I'm sorry, I mean three-installation, not three-day installation.

OMG... it didn't come with the mail today.  I'm going to die.  In other news, made a Goron that turned out well in the trial version.

I only just received my copy today from Amazon, and the location it was sent from isn't that far away.  I ordered on the 9th, it shipped on the 18th, and got here today on the 23rd.  To be honest it really didn't take that long, but being anxious for it just made it worse.
Earth has been a lovely place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live here.

Me, I made the mistake of trying to order the CC and preorder Spore. Since Amazon wants to minimize shipping costs, it decided to ship both in September once Spore actually gets released. The problem was that I didn't realize this until I started wondering why I wasn't getting anything in the mail.
