    Help required. I was lucky enough to win the Christmas Bonanza on this forum and as first prize I chose Tomb Raider as a pre-order.

    Prior to the game being released I PM'd Chox1988 to check all was ok and he confirmed he'd ordered it.

    I PMd him on Saturday again as the codes had been released and some forum members were downloading already.

    He'd emailed back to say he was away and that he'd be back on Sunday and he'd send the code if he'd received it.

    That's the last I've heard from him.

    I've PM'd him a few times since with no reply.

    Now the game has been released I'm left with a choice do I buy or wait for him?

    According to his profile he's logged in today but just not replying to messages.

    I'm just feeling impatient as the game has now been released and I've not heard from him since Saturday.

    According to his profile he's been on the forums. Wish he'd just send me a message telling me all is ok.

    I think he has left the country as he didn't want to pay £20 for this game. :devil:





    Dude it's Chox he will pop back when he can, he hasn't even posted about his Titan yet so I expect he is away. :smashin: if you really want to play this game buy it and ask Chox for another game or voucher. That's what I would do. :)

    I heard he only popped on here to say his goodbyes then he was fleeing the country on a shuttle to Mars with the code to Tomb Raider in his pocket.:hiya:

    Have some patience mate. I'm sure he's just really busy. When he gets a chance i'm sure he'll read your PM's or see this thread or the other posts you've made about getting your free game :smashin:

    It's a cracking gesture to say the least, creating a thread asking about where your game is... is well ridiculous lol.

    I never cease to be amazed on these forums :D

    I'll contact border police and ask them to be on the look out for a man with a copy of TombRaider under his arm. Joke in case anyone takes this literally.

    I should be patient I know. I only made the post as he's been on the forums but not replied. Not suggesting he's scamming anyone or anything.

    Well personally I think it's outrageous!!! You should be demanding some form of compensation,maybe a Titan?

    He said something to me that he had seen a great bargain when he bought his Titan. He didn't just get you tombraider he only went and got you the whole collection 👍👍 !!!!!!

    Tomb raider 1, 2 and 3!!!! Something about he has to wait for them to arrive from eBay as they were hard to source :)




    Just kidding ;)
    Sure everything will be fine. Just hold in there .

    I'm just glad you're safe mate, we were all at our wits end with worry!

    Don't ever go away again without letting us know EXACTLY where you are and when PRECISELY you will be back!

    ;)
