Earth Defense force is the same way. I've been keeping the lookout on that game for a loooong time, and have never even found it anywhere at any price. It's like 35 or 40 bucks with shipping on ebay which is brutal. More hesitant to trade some games in lately as I don't know if I'll ever be able to find them in a local store again.

lawl, just wanted to share this with CAGS, cuz im amazed by EB's employees.

just got a call from them right now, to pick up RE5 that i pre-ordered.

just one thing, i canceled it long time ago :0

how does EB's Pre-order list work anyways? if a employee forgets to cross off your list, do you still get a call? ( if you cancel it)

igot my deposit back when i canceled btw.... i told him i canceled it and he told me to pick up my deposit.... im confuzed.

nope. you buy the game as normal. the only difference is that if you pre-order it you can take it back for full credit. i've done it before (smackdown vs raw 2009). the only difference in the whole process is that their computers records show you preordered it.

Do as he says and double your money or pick up the game. You don't want to go against EB's orders!

I also got a call from my favourite EB games (should-be) manager informing me I can pick up my copy of RE5 in the morning; I was surprised since I usually never get calls that something will be in the next day.

And if you can get your deposit back (again), i don't think you have much to complain about. :p

Sorry for the n00b question, but for anyone that has Resident Evil 5 for the 360, am I correct in assuming you'd need a Gold Xbox Live account in order to play 2 player online co-op? Silver members would only be able to play single player with the computer AI?

I already have RE5 preordered from Amazon for PS3, but it's not shipping till Mar 25 [wtf], so I was debating whether or not to pick up the RE5 360 bundle instead, since I'm planning to get a 360 eventually lol.

Thanks for the help guys :D

I think the cheapest now is Zellers, $59.99 [only the 360 version is advertised in their flyer, but I assume the PS3 version would be the same price].

Amazon.ca was $53.99 until a few days ago, but now they raised it.

Nah I have nothing agaisnt Pokemon (except its' anime is pretty crusty). Heck I'm anticipating the release of Platnium...

I meant more so then raising virtual cats and dogs in my youth I was too busy training my electric rodents.

fair enough. the anime is pretty much trash except for Ep 08 "The Path to the Pokémon League" the greatest episode of all time in which Ash loses badly to a real trainer and the twist at the end is that he doesn't squirrel a victory at the end for whatever random reason he's been using all season. I was already a fan of Sandshrew but I could watch him smash Pikachu over and over and over again. I'm tempted to download the episode just for that purpose.

oh.. and since we've moved on from that to RE5... RE4 was better. blah blah blah. ^_^

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

Hey guys, how does cancelling a pre-order at EB Games work? I put down $5 for Suikoden Tierkreis, just in case they actually get the CD/digital artbook and no one else does. However, I never asked the full price....today I asked and before tax the guy said it was $45.99!!

Is it possible for me to cancel after the game comes out (to see who gets the bonus or not)? And I know I'll get refunded in credit, but I've heard people say something about it getting put on an edge card? Is that bad?

At worst, you can just transfer the credit to another preorder or to something you're buying.

Depending on the cashier and their mood, they'll probably just refund you the preorder.

getting the 5 bux put on a edge card is better if you ask me...no tax! whooot!

or else the gift card, or as the above gentleman said, transfer it to something else.

Ok, thanks guys. Hopefully they will just add the $5 to a gift card I already have, since there are no other games I want right now (except Pokemon Platinum, but I paid that off already).

Pokemon Platinum is $39.99 at EB Games. As for when it comes out....I'm not sure. I know when Diamond and Pearl came out (April 22nd of 2007), it was on a Sunday. Platinum might be out this Sunday as well.
