Hi everyone

I pre-ordered the Tales of Monkey Island on this site. I would like to know, are we getting the game by mail or how will hey go about this?


Regards

  • The episodes will be downloadable initially. You'll receive an email each month when a new episode releases, with a download link.

    When all five episodes have released episodically, we'll put out a Collector's DVD that includes the games plus bonus content. As a season customer, you can get this for free if you want it, but you will need to place an order to pay for the shipping.

    I am very excited about this new "Tales Of Monkey Island" release by Telltale Games. Looks fantastic! :)

    To bad I can't pre-order and get all these wonderful exclusives that comes
    if you pre-order now. For me that lives in Sweden I am sad to say that I am
    going to have to wait for a DVD release of the full season 1 of "Tales Of Monkey Island". The big issue for me is the paying choices!

    If I could pay via mobile-SMS then it wouldn't be a problem for me.

    Hmm...this is the big issue for digital download of games today. That a few
    can't pay because of the limit of paying choices. Not that I want to complain on anything rather bringing up my view on the matter.

    Once again "Tales Of Monkey Island" looks fantastic and wonderful done by Telltale Games and all others involved in the project!
    Credit from me Chris! :D

    You are not alone. I can't get it either cos my bank wont give me a debit card. A normal bank card is useless for stuff like this :mad:

    I really hope Telltale release a physical copy soon - why can't these episodes be released to disc seperately? Cost? I hate the idea of having to wait until November at least for my favourite game :( I'm dreading the day when everything is digital only, or first choice for any company.

  • Doesn't anybody of you use PayPal? They work with normal bank accounts... at least here in Germany.

  • Why don't you ask your bank for a prepaid credit card for your Internet purchases? I live in Spain which is nowhere as technologically advanced as Sweden and we have those :)

  • My paypal's unverified, none instant as my card isn't a debit/credit one.

    Thanks anyways. :)

    lol at first I thought you were angry at me when I saw a ":mad:" symbol.
    But then I read the entire text. :)

    I do love digital downloads for games and other media. But the catch
    is of course the choice for payment. I'm sorry to say but I don't trust
    to expose my credit card online. I mean maybe a lot of people don't have
    a problem with exposing their credit card online but I do. Offline is another
    thing.

    So I don't cry or blaming for not being able to buy any of the episodes
    online with no other pay options. Instead I am going to nicely wait for a DVD
    release with all of the episodes.

    Telltale Games is good on making games, I must say!!! :D


    UPDATE: I´ll think about PayPal though....:)

    Absolutely right, i used paypal and everthing went fine and superfast :eek:

    Paypal rulez! :cool:

    btw. verifying a bank account is not that hard...


    How Do I Become Verified?
    Just Add and Confirm a Bank Account. We will send your account two small deposits. Enter these deposits on the PayPal website. Answer a quick confirmation phone call from our third-party authentication service to validate your information, and you're all set.

  • Yeh I did that. Then it asked for a credit card or debit to fully verify. It wont let me send instant payments without that :(

    I think I'm going to have to ask family members to buy it for me :P Im too impatient to wait months when everyone else is playing it. hehe

    lol at first I thought you were angry at me when I saw a "" symbol.

    Haha I don't like using that smiley. I'd rarely use it against someone, no worries ^_^

    I envy your patience. I'm awful, if everyone else has it I must have it too. When it comes to Monkey Island (or Final Fantasy LOL) I revert back to a child haha
