Honestly, I can't believe I forgot to ask for the day off work completely, but everything worked out well. I hoped it wouldn't be another 9pm day at work and the team came through. (Thanks to everyone on the weeklies desk for making it happen before 7pm today!) Mad dash to Game Stop, where I learned I didn't have anything more to pay on TS3. I thought I'd had foresight back in February, but it turns out that J is just a truly awesome person and had gone over there at some point and paid it off for me! Best surprise e-v-e-r because it's not my birthday or anything and I truly wasn't expecting anything like that at all.
So why am I on here blogging? Just typing a couple lines and uploading pics while I back up some files pre-install. Plus an XP sys restore checkpoint for good measure. (All manner of evil has happened to me during previous installs of various progs and games.) Anyway, here are the photos:
The Collectors' Edition box downstairs. Took this one with my phone after giving J' a massive hug.
The box nearly defeated me, but I prevailed. The plumb-bob is actually a 2GB thumb drive (which J says explains the high price of the CE)
Inside is a tips and tricks booklet, the instructions, stickers, download instructions for an exclusive Euro style car and the game DVD. Thankfully, it's ONE game disc this time around. The 4-disc installs with the base TS2 game was a nightmare.
Me, pleased as all get out! Time to grab J and get this install on the road... more later!
