HMV have cancelled orders for south park as guessed! ha ha

Nosferatu@Cult Labs 27th April 2011 12:08 PM

I've just had the e-mails through as well. I expected them to cancel the orders as they would really be out of pocket if they honoured them all!

wayfarer 27th April 2011 12:13 PM

I got two emails with the same script but both refer to "previous correspondence" that I haven't received :rolleyes:

We're getting in touch to let you know that all or part of your recent order from hmv.com has been cancelled, as per our previous correspondence:

Nosferatu@Cult Labs 27th April 2011 12:17 PM

I wondered what the 'previous correspondence' it meant, but I guess it refers to the order confirmation with the slightly odd price. I could get on my high horse and demand to know what he means by 'previous correspondence', but it's not going to get me anywhere so I'm not going to bother.

Nosferatu@Cult Labs 27th April 2011 12:20 PM

HMV clearly like to put the cart before the horse as I received the cancellation e-mail and then the previous correspondence:

There's a REALLY nice uncut bluray of it available here in Australia. I'm surprised that the us and uk don't have one.

Planet Axel currently have $0.99 shipping on all titles for the whole of the summer, apparently.

Pisses me off actually, as I put an order in with them only yesterday and got charged full whack! :mmph: :lol:

I e-mailed Axel, and they are going to refund me the shipping difference once my order has completely shipped - now that's what I call customer service! :happy:

The down-side: I pre-ordered the Burial Ground Blu along with my other items, which have shipped... so I won't get refunded until June.

Still; great service! :nod:

bdc 11th May 2011 07:53 PM

Axel has great customer service. :nod:

Poultrygeist looks very good indeed. It's not amazing, as It was filmed on a low budget, but for what it is, it looks really good. Some great extras too. Pity that Class Of Nuke 'Em High hasn't been released yet. I still need to pick up Tromeo & Juliet though.

That's odd as my copy of Class Of Nuke 'em High arrived a couple of days ago. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but will let you know what it's like when I do.
