Mine is still "Packaging", been like that since morning. WTF Newegg, does it takes 1 full day to package it? Get your shit together.

My Mercenary Edition also came damaged. I knew this would happen, though, and my Gamestop copy, which will come in a box, will come in on Monday or Tuesday. Problem solved!

Ouch. That is painful to look at. Hope you're complaining to NewEgg and sending it back for a replacement.

I used a gift card and got it at GameStop, just so I could examine the box condition before I bought. Just had too many experiences like yours with NewEgg and Amazon, so I've decided the tax is worth avoiding the aggravation.

Man I really hope mine doesn't come like that. It just shipped from New Jersey so that's why it was probably delayed.

I hope you didn't agree to a replacement as that will likely be shipped in a bubble mailer as well. They are not only as bad as Amazon with replacements, but I have actually gotten things shipped even more poorly the second time (i.e. the first game came in a bubble mailer and the replacement came in a vinyl pouch with zero bubbles or padding at all).

Code of Princess for 3DS (Atlus) is down to $31.99 on Newegg: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16878116055

I don't know how rare it is, but I know that I haven't been able to find it in the 5 retail stores I went into, and on other forums, it seems to be the same deal for other people that have been looking for it. I figured that with the CD and the art book, 32 bucks is a pretty solid deal on a game that may become fairly difficult to find soon. Anyone played it yet? I can't wait for an excuse to dust off the ol' 3DS!

I don't necessarily want to scare people off, but CoP disappointed me with its repetitive combat, uninteresting story, and lackluster humor; it got to the point where I would have to force myself to play it. I got it from Newegg for $29.99 through a preorder promotion and I traded it in to BBY today for $21 after bonuses; I'm happy to keep the artbook and CD for $9.

Forcing yourself to play a game blows but I thought it was pretty fun. Only thing I was bummed about was the slowdown but playing 4 player coop is a crazy time, so much happening at once. For anybody on the fence if you liked Guardian Heroes you would definitely like this game. Online is great too and didn't have any lag issues (its also surprisingly active). I'm actually still trying to get through campaign and/or level up the main characters, if anybody wants to play online with me just shoot me a pm.

Sheesh. Newegg sent Ragnarok from New Jersey via DHL. Had they sent it directly with USPS, it would have made its way across the state border to my mailbox by now.

Same here. It should get here by Tuesday, but I wouldn't be surprised if I don't get it till the end of the week at the rate it's moving.

I will always call CoP "Diet Guardian Heroes: Missing the Point Edition." The voice acting is amazing even if the writing is middling. Music is fantastic. But that's the best praise I can give. The combat takes the basics of Guardian Heroes and never goes to the crazy ends that GH went. Everything feels tame and boring. Without spectacle, GH is worthless. CoP doesn't work.

I'd be willing to offload my copy if you folks are interested.

I agree with you man. It's no Guardian Heroes. I feel like I got a much better deal with GH HD on XBLA for $10 over this game. It's like they took all the variety out of the game and called it a successor. The only thing this game did better then GH was the voice acting...

Ragnarok came in a bubble mailer and the box was all bent out of shape as well. RMA authorized from Newegg and I asked them to place a note to pack in a box. Fingers crossed this time.

since it was brought up it should be noted the Guardian Heroes is part of the Gold Weekly sales starting this week so starting nov 6th it will be half off at 400 points of $5 instead.

Every Boxed game I have ever ordered from New Egg has been crushed. The just throw it in the box and put paper on top of it so the bottom gets crushed. I would recommend never ordering special editions from them.

Enjoying Ragnarok so far pretty good, especially for the fact I got it for free with that promotion with the Sony Card prior haha.

And man....I was excited when they announced Tales of Hearts R........for Japan. Wish they would localize both Innocence R and the upcoming Hearts. That or I could brushed up on some Japanese

Amazon has Akai Katana on sale for $14.99. I'm pretty sure this is the lowest price it's been so far. Any opinions on if the game's worth it if I'm not that into shmups?

I would say if you're not into shmups, there's no point in buying it.

Okay, thanks. Thought I had heard that there were some gameplay tweaks that made it a bit different from most shmups, but my backlog thanks you :)

Hopefully, someone's interested.
