Expected ship date is May 2nd - May 14th. Anyone else or just me?


I ordered a couple of days ago. It hasn't shipped yet, but I am supposed to have it next week.

I ordered a copy (plus a book) on Wednesday. Chose free shipping and was told the estimated delivery date would be April 11th. That seems pretty quick.

It was that damn screw I added to put the price over $24.99. I cancelled it and added a book I wanted and now it says April 13th. Beware of hardware delaying your orders everyone

This is a great game...blows Hotel Dusk out of the water, well worth $25.

Just completed the game 100% a few hours ago. For those of you with massive backlogs, this game should be at the very top of your list to play. It's a fantastic visual novel and one of the best experiences I've had on the DS.

I would recommend not looking at any FAQs though, seems like it'd be fairly easy to spoil.

Showed up in my Gold Box on Wed. I had to order it, Amazon gave me no alternatives. Arrived Friday morning. Now I just have to finish the other games I'm in the midst of playing...

Thanks to CAG I bought this saturday, got in wednesday, and beat it last night. It's one hell of a game and incredibly addicting.

So for you with backlogs, forget them and play this game first. It may start off slow, especially if this isn't your thing, but give it time and the story will grab you and not let go.

I'll echo everyone's opinion and say how great the game is. Got a copy when they still had the watch and blew through it in a few days with all the endings. Amazing experience unlike anything else.

With that kind of backlog do you generally play the next game in the order that you bought them? If so I'm guessing you guys wait quite a while to get the latest consoles?


I don't, to be honest. It's kind of overwhelming to stand there and look at all of the games to pick one to play next. Some games I just want to play through as quickly as possible, and others I want to take my time.

How I choose is by genre first, then go from there. I usually don't play the same genre back-to-back, so I vary it up. If an older title catches my eye, then I'll play it next, but it doesn't have to be that way.

As for the console question, I don't have a PS3, but have the rest. I waited a year before getting the 360, because of all of the issues I kept hearing about. I'm waiting to get the PS3 until I get an HDTV. However, normally, I get the new consoles within 6 months of release.

I have a backlog of roughly 500-600 games between PC, 360, PS3, DS, PSP, SNES, NES, Genesis, DC, N64, PS2 (probably 200 games for this console alone), PS1, and a lesser amount scattered between other handhelds and older systems. However, I'm a collector, so most of my games are collectibles (well at least from the PS2/PS1) and I don't actually mind if I don't get around to playing them heh (though I do want to play roughly 80% of them). Though I do have a PC/360/PS3/DS/PSP backlog of roughly 100-150 games that I do eventually WANT to play.

The life of a gamer is hard ;).

Oh and I did end up buying 999... I told myself I wouldn't, but you bastards gave too much positive feedback that you all talked me into it... Jerks =P

This is a intriguing game. I'm hooked and I've only beaten the first room. Apparently it gets scary from what I've read so this should be good.

This game sucks dont get it.

Oh wait this isnt the Fable 3 thread? Nevermind.

999 is easily one of the best games I've ever played. Couldn't put it down.

I can't seem to find a copy at my local GS, and the online store is still out.

Any suggestions peeps?

Amazon still has it for the same price, or is there a reason you don't want to order it from there?

Got it today and decided to play it only for a few minutes since I'm still in middle of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. Ended up spending 3 hours instead...before it was time for dinner. Sheesh. Looks like I'll finish 999 before resuming Golden Dawn. :D

Not bad at all...looking forward to what 1st ending I'll get (and other endings at other times)

I would tell anyone who's on the fence about this to go ahead and bite on the amazon offer. I rarely game anymore for more than an hour a week if even that. I go to CAG just for dvd deals really. I don't even play on the ds in the house. But I think I've played 999 for 4 hrs straight last night and hopefully more tonight. Thanks for all the posts about this game in the past week. I'm hooked.

When this goes to sub $10 I'm in. When did this come out? 6 months ago? Crossing my fingers it goes so low.

Somehow I doubt it'll reach sub $10. It's already a steal at $25..

You can forget sub-$10. At that price you should buy 3 though.

Bump for anyone on the fence about this. It's a fantastic game, one of the best on DS.
