So all us chumps who preordered the game have to wait?

That doesn't really make it a preorder, if we are the last to get it, ain't it?

The activation is bumming me in the gob. When I enter my order number and password, it says "Your purchase is not complete. Please reattempt payment." Fail.

Still, the 3 seconds of game provided in the demo is fun.

after the heinous time it took to download, it now tells me I have a corrupt installer.

It may have been from when the downloader crashed with an ARM error, but it resumed from where it left off.

Same here. I was afraid I had forgotten my password, but seems like it's not the case.

Unfortunately not, no. Pretty much everybody is affected by it right now.

I don't even have an order number since Telltale seems to be unable to send me email for some reason. Charging me seems to work, though, so that's something positive.

Wow! I must suck at gaming, because I played the demo for about 15 minutes or so.

Loads of fun, though. Wish I had a credit card.

I wish I could send Sam to the Telltale offices to go fuzzy on their ass.

Damn activation problems.

The demo was funny though.

I've just played through the office part and some of the street, and to put it bluntly...it's the best adventure game I've played in years and every other current adventure game series should just crawl away and die because this is the king and everything else is just bland by comparison!

The writing is exceptional, literally a laugh every half a minute or so. Although the gameplay isn't particularly challenging (OK not even slightly challenging) the amount of stuff you can look at and interact with onscreen makes it a truly enjoyable gameplay experience.

The only complaint I have so far is technical related...as was the case with Bone before it, it seems to take forever to load between areas. That's it really.

I think Telltale Games is the best thing to happen to the AG industry in years, not only with their own products but with offering digital distribution on other companies games as well, people are going to visit the site to check out S&M and will probably end up trying those other games while their at it, which they maybe wouldn't have done otherwise.

Hooray, I've received my activation key now. Very swift service from Telltale - I'll have fun playing this tomorrow. :~

Default S&M demo problem

I'm experiencing a serious problem when running the demo. The first two logos appear normally, but then nothing happens and after a few seconds a blue screen appears for half a second and my PC restarts automatically.
I have a pretty recent computer with winXP.

Is anyone experiencing the same problem?

All suggestions are welcome.

Would that be before or after those other games CRAWL AWAY AND DIE?
