Ok so I pre-ordered the Crysis Nano Edition 2 all the way back in January (Proof) in hopes that i would be among the first to play Crysis 2 (I was among the first to play the original Crysis and i still love the game).
Now it was released in January 21st and now its the 23rd and yet I STILL am not playing the game.Why is that you ask? let me copy paste the email that I received from the EA store.

Yup for paying extra for the Pre-Order of the Nano Edition I got my game delayed. Sure I just got a coupon (which might be used to pre-order Portal 2) but the does not change the fact that here I am ranting about not being able to kick some alien @$$ instead of actually kicking some alien @$$.
What also bothers me is that the game was already leaked a while ago (source) so there are people who have already played it by stealing it off the internet.
