I ordered mine around then too and have not heard anything via email.
I called the store that THQ uses and they're some outsourced company that gives talking points. They over charged me for some download thing that is PC related (as well as other console users ps3/xbox360) and won't credit me that until the game is shipped. It makes no sense.
They also keep telling me "well the order is still pending and once it clears it will then go to the location for shipping." I've never had a company blow me off each time I call to inquire about something. Definitely not using them again.
Good luck. Seems like we'll need it.
