You know, it’s not very often that I get incredibly excited for a game release, even for games that I want really badly. Mostly because when I was a kid I allowed myself to get really excited for a few things here and there only to be left disappointed because stock didn’t arrive or something along those lines.

It’s the reason I’m so angry right now because I’m REALLY excited for Batman: Arkham City and this recent news that we might not get our copies in store on Friday has me on edge. I really hope that it gets sorted out and that no one gets stuck without their game, goodness knows some of us plan gaming weekends well ahead of time for games such as these.
