Topic: Amazon MIDNIGHT delivery!

Posts 1 to 20 of 21

Just had to do a double take on an email I just got off Amazon... apparently so long as you order DOOM by 10PM on the night before it is out they will deliver it to you for the midnight launch (or pretty soon after). That's insane... feel sorry for the poor guy that'll be delivering stuff in the early hours of the morning!!!

Don't think my wife would be too appreciative of the doorbell going at 12:30am for my game delivery either

That's a bit excessive. I assume they're trying to muscle in on the people that queue for midnight release as they cannot wait for the postie.

Apparently if you've never used 'Prime Now' before you can get £10 off your order too. I won't be taking advantage of this... it's rare I play much after midnight these days anyway... have to be up a 7am for work :-/

Still, it's astonishing to think that this is even an option these days...

@stylon: Isn't that only available in certain geographic areas though? I think it's still early days.

So how many of you guys have pre-ordered Doom? I've just watched (yeah I know, I'm a slow-ass) the gameplay videos on youtube. It reminds me of my PC days on Unreal Tournament. I'm sensing an impulse buy looming....

@Captain_Chao5: I haven't... yet. Been waiting for news on what the single player was like? I'm really tempted though... especially as I'm getting bombarded with adverts and emails for it. Think I would get bored (and killed) quickly with the multiplayer deathmatch malarkey. Any reviews knocking about yet?

@stylon: I'm in the same boat. My finger hovered over the Buy Now button on Amazon, but the review embargo is unsettling. I'm 99% interested in the campaign, although I might put a toe in the water of MP as I was a fan of UT online (I was still crap though). According to TrueAchievements, there are 18 tracked gamers playing already. I assume advance deliveries, but I cant see any comments yet. I've borrowed CoD AW which is keeping me entertained for now. Maybe I'll start a Doom thread in here (cant see one yet) and get the view of the PX folks.

EDIT: Bit of a mini-review here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLToGa1bNFc

I wasn't massively impressed by the multiplayer beta, felt retro and not in a good way. The vids I've seen of the gameplay looks good, but waiting for a review.

@Captain_Chao5: Thanks for that link Cap... I'm sold on the game now! In fact I've actually just ordered it off Amazon as I already had £20 of credit on there.

Game looks like a lot of old school 'blow the bad guys to ****'' fun. Love the insane weapons, execution moves and the arena sections look very reminiscent of UT. The fact that you can mod weapons and upgrade you character is a nice bonus too.

@JamesGoblin & @Red620Ti: Couldn't care less about the Multiplayer so that doesn't affect my decison

It's a physical purchase anyway... worst case scenario I whack it on eBay or take it Game and I've only lost a few quid. Looking forward to it arriving tomorrow

@stylon: Nice one! I'd be interested to hear your thoughts after you've played for a while. I've just been looking at it on Amazon. Price has dropped to £37.99 already! My freebie amazon credit from topcashback is wavering now LOL

WOW. It's out of stock already. Due in tomorrow (14th) and the price is back to £39.86!

EDIT: Just checked Amazon again..now £37.82. Talk about yo-yo prices.
