Looks like I’m commited now.
Christmas at the X household. My boy got the Smash-Up cars, my daughter got Littlest Pets……… and I got the Pirates of the Burning Sea pre-order. It was either that or LOTRO, or a new tie; and I just don’t see the time appearing to allow playing LOTRO. I have plenty of ties too.
The techie gals out there will be underwhelmed, but I got my wife a wireless router. She is really happy. I don’t want or need wireless, but she wants nothing more than to do work while sitting on the living room couch, no desk nearby. Now, she can – if she’s nice and I let her borrow my laptop.
Apparently I have to buy the full version of POTBS, then use multiple keys to get going. January 7th, I can start the pre-boarding party, aka the “go-live day for people who buy preorders and other favorites of the Flying Labs developers”. The pre-boarding party key, the landing party key, and finally a launch key will all be needed to get me started. The included CD is audio only.
Pre-orders are kind of funny. She got this at Fry’s for $5. Now me getting into Fry’s is a difficult proposition, so I’m mostly thinking I will buy a digital download once it’s available and just consider the extra $5 lost money. Waiting in a noontime Fry’s line, eating a twinkie instead of lunch, and still getting back to work late, is not worth $5 even for this cheapskate. I just hope if I do that it’ll all work correctly.
