Does it really take that long for kickstarter goods to reach Australia? I guess by the time they arrive I'll be ready for another playthrough, hopefully with a couple patches installed.

 

If you get unlucky. I've found stuff I buy from US can take anywhere between 5 and 40 days to get here

Maybe someone sharing my name annoyed someone in customs and they're keeping it in a warehouse for a few weeks before sending it to me or something, but I'm not exaggerating the timings I've previously experienced. But hey, maybe this team forked out for a much quicker delivery option than the other kickstarters and it'll be sitting on my doorstep tomorrow.

 

...Yeah, I think I'll rely on my digital copy.

The more I read about all those glorious shipping weeks after release for Europeans, the more happy 2-3 months later for Australia... I live in damn russia and postal "service" here is beyond pathetic... should've switch to digital versions... and should stop doing anything with kickstarter. Some yokels on youtube are already playing and people who basically saved obsidian as a company now sit and stare in monitors waiting for keys... don't want to sound harsh, but obsidian better not be one step from death next time they go to kickstarter... not gonna back anything from there :(

It's like 7am Tuesday where they are still the whole day to give out the keys like they said they would, and still a couple days until it actually comes out

The Steam Forums suggest that the preload has started.

I'm sorry if this has been answered already, but any confirmation also on if we'll be getting the pre-order bonuses as well despite news that our keys might not arrive until launch day itself?

If you mean the 'When will it be possible to start pre-loading' thread, the person who responded saying "Downloading now" was joking/trolling and they've since deleted that comment.

Australians are weirdos who say things like bonza and oath.

 

And do be that guy! Be him! In fact, be, all that you can be, when you do it, in the Army.

The people complaining about not getting the game on the same day as reviewers don't care about the future of this game/games or Obsidian. It's all very shortsighted.

I think you have a rather skewed perspective on Obsidian's financial state at the time of the Kickstarter.

Wow, 131 users reading this topic, I think people really want their keys!

We are just bored, because we cannot play PoE.

Watch the documentary The Road to Eternity.

Obsidian was nearly bankrupt, when they decided to go to kickstarter.

The outrages of this world are almost too traumatic to bear.

 

But seriously, the point of Kickstarter is to get stuff you want made, it is not so you can glory in making all the creative people in the world owe you something. They said they were going to give us the game on the 26th of March. If they do not do that, well then I could understand being upset.

I just thought that was cool. I did not realize this was just another excuse for entitlement.

Bad publicity? They announced the game will be out by the 26th and it will be, so far as I know. Deal with it dude, this has been known for months.

 

They also said the keys would be out 'probably Monday or Tuesday' so they have one more day (PST of course) to get us our keys.

It's not even 8 AM on the west coast. I doubt anyone is even in the Obs offices yet (or at least, very few). If they get the keys out today it's still likely going to be several more hours.

I stand corrected. I haven't watched that yet. Still, as Valmy pointed out, Obs hasn't failed on any obligations as of yet.

Dude, why you watching then? I'm pointedly not watching any streams of the game. Don't want spoilers and don't want to torture myself. Save yourself some angst and step away from the streaming vids! :no:
