Weird.

EDIT: Maybe being a Power Up member makes a difference?

You guys have better GS than me. The one good one near me where no one asked for preorders and didn't bother me closed down like a year later. The employees and manager were nice.

Mine are awesome, and I go in to visit just to chat, and just about whatever in general, along with games. We've hung out too before. So yeah for me there's the friend-atmosphere too, so I get to talk to friends along with making a purchase. So if there's some like super rare bonus, they know that I'm in there all the time pre-ordering limiteds, and will save it for me if they only get like, 3 in or whatever.

Gamestop doesn't make the bulk of its money on new games sales, so it makes sense they'd de-prioritize them. See: Circle of Life

Gamestop.com sent me a Mario Party 8 amiibo/game bundle without the game (missing from the box) this past December, which required me to be on hold/on the phone for literally hours to eventually get a partial refund when it turned out they couldn't process their own replacement order due to lack of stock when the item was still in stock online. I eventually had to just dispute it with my credit card.

They are THE WORST, but sometimes they're the only option.

I had free shipping for it arriving about two days after release I believe. PowerUp Member here and from Missouri. It was like ten bucks for day of release shipping, which is bad compared to my dealings with Amazon and Best Buy far as shipping goes. I might cancel and go with Best Buy if it appears soon. I'm glad I got this ordered just to be sure.

Also, my GameStop is fine with the employees being pretty nice and not really forceful. It's a pretty small one though and I haven't been to it as much lately or as I used to besides getting trade credit via 50% more credit toward Switch pre-ordered games Sunday for MK8D and LEGO City Undercover. It's mostly because GCU and Prime at Best Buy and Amazon are a hell of a lot better.

I always preorder from Gamestop first and then cancel if it shows up on Amazon. They are the only ones I know of that charge shipping on a preorder. Amazon and Walmart don't.

I'll defend their online store more than the B&Ms. Haven't had any issues with their online store after they revamped it years ago. Back in the day, they would not be able to fulfill my preorder bonuses so I would lose out and they would just say sorry and move on. It made me quit their site for a while. But so far, they've been good. I think competition from Amazon and BB have really motivated them to not fuck it up so much. The prices still suck so I only buy from them as a last resort or if i need a backup preorder. They're more reliable than Amazon now when it comes to LEs/CEs/SEs.

It's Nintendo, anything limited/special etc should not be taken for granted with them. If you want it, just lock in a preorder. You can cancel later if everyone ends up selling it. No harm done unless it sells out later in the day. Then you're screwed.

Their corporate CS is amazing, but not many people use them. I've been able to even order things that aren't available anymore on the site due to issues: something even Amazon CS can't do.

As I mentioned a page before, the "limited" "special" etc are all names. Unless specifically numbered, it depends how many Nintendo prints, and how much demand their is. It's FE, so there will definitely be a demand.

It's honestly not that exciting of a set. Fates SE was a real special set with very tangible unique things about it. This is a soundtrack sampler, a couple pins and a probably very small and thin art book. I'm going to wait and see if Amazon gets it for the discount otherwise i'm going to pass on this.

No way is this going to be a scarce as the Fates LE. That one was IMO, the only physical version of the game worth purchasing, it was, if you wanted all the campaigns far and away the best version of that game. You got all 3 campaigns, for the same cost as buying them digitally, and got all the extra LE stuff for essentially free.

It's my fault, because any time I'm "there" for pre orders like this they are never rare and turn into a collectors piece. If I weren't here trust me, it'd of been sold out in a minute.

Still sore about that. I would've copped it without the extra shit just for the convenience.

It's true that it was the definitive version of the physical game, with the addition of Revelations. FE in general is big in general now, so I can see this not being as rare as Fates, but not easy to come by, either. It's still a Nintendo LE.

It is very different, with sacred Stones being a spiritual sequel to the game.

Alm and Celica won't be nearly as annoying as Corrin though.

This is the second game in the series and fire emblem really didn't hit big until the third release on the SNES.

The special edition for Xenoblade X was less scarce than Tokyo Mirage.

It got really cheap at one point too, $40 I think. I bought it for full price lol

The demand for that title was way less than expected. But FE is more popular.

Yeah I remember how pissed you were over that. I'm still amazed that not only did Nintendo print so few copies of that but they never even talked about releasing the cart alone sans extras. I wonder why it was never even seemed to be considered.

Amazon and the Fates SE were a mess. I'm glad I went with them as I ended getting it for $5 and two day shipping, but seeing them putting SEs for sale at launch, without shipping all of them and even cancelling some preorders was amusing. XD
