Mass Effect 3 CE SNAFU: It Begins


For those of you unfamiliar with the, ahem, situation regarding me and the Mass Effect 3 collector’s edition, you can head over here to get caught up, or, if you’re feeling lazy, all you need to know is that I ordered a Mass Effect 3 CE from and I am a little pessimistic it’ll ever make it to my front door.

Soooo…I was enjoying a little getaway last weekend when I received this email:

Okay, sure, this doesn’t mean I’m completely screwed out of a CE, and anyone who knows me knows I’m always a glass-half-full kinda chick, but I have a baaaad feeling about this! I thought it was weird that they were going to cancel my order unless I approved the delay. Is that typical? I’ve never ordered a videogame or anything online before it releases, so maaaaybe this is the norm and just Target covering their ass in case the delay turns out to be longer than expected.

What I’m hoping isn’t the case: Target either A) Didn’t actually order any of the ME3 CE and are now scrambling, which is useless because BioWare has said they cannot make any more ME3 CE by launch or B) They ran out of pre-orders by the time I pre-ordered mine and are hoping to get more in stock, which is the cause for the possible delay.

I approved the delay and now wait with crossed fingers, toes and other body parts you probably didn’t even know could be crossed.

This also is kind of weird because Target has already charged me. Hmmmm…

I know, I know.  I’m worrying WAY too much about this, but again, if you know me you know I eat, sleep and breathe collector’s editions of videogames; ESPECIALLY for games like Mass Effect 3!

I’ll continue crossing my body parts until it is in my hands. ;D

  1. So you went from dealing with GameStop Snafuus, to dealing with Target Snafuus. >.> poor Britt.
    You’ll get the Collections edition or they will get a smack from the plushy flail of doom. plushy flail!!!

    • HAHAHA!!! YES! I will approach them with the plushy flail and they will have no other choice but to give it to me!


  2. March 21st! Hell that is like 50 Salarian years!!! Are they fricking kidding! I want to say you can barrow mine, but I can’t bring myself to do so. I know, I failed you. I’m a terrible person who’s going to hell (but only after saving humanity, which is kind of messed up). I’ll put in a good word with the powers that be and see if you can’t get your CE on time or at most a half a day late.

  3. I’m telling you, I’m pretty sure I heard that Target charging you early is illegal as ish. I’m not 100% sure of that info, but you should really look into that, just in case. You could win some cash and gets ALL THE MASS EFFECTS!
