That's funny, my friend complained about how he wanted UPS Ground and
they charged him Overnight. They do take forever to reply to e-mails
though. Once my inquiry went unanswered for about 3 weeks, by then I
had already gotten the game from another source.

*Shudder*. I've gotten games in cases that are either cracked or have
"fallen teeth" from the inner ring, too.

NCS is very good at replying to e-mail, but my recent order arrived with
damaged packaging inside the shipping container...

I'd have to agree... CCA was no improvement over Zeta Gundam!
