makes no sense why a game maker already knows they will have shipping delay just a month before. Wii u delays have hurt wii u more then it has helped the system.

man this sucks the first game i wanted for wii u since launch is delayed. NO store has this game in stock and have no clue when they will get it in. Wii U just keeps getting worse and worse. I could have saved from buying this day 1 and wait till a game came out i wanted and good chance saved money.


Yeah, tell me about it. I am in a pickle b/c yesterday I bought The Amazing Spiderman and Ben 10 Omniverse in hopes to do a return/rebuy with Lego Undercover, 3 for $90 for their promo, but if its not there on Wednesday, looks like I'll be returning those two. Thankfully I resisted the urge to tear into Spiderman b/c I really want to check that out. But GS will have it for $30 starting Wednesday, so not all hope is lost if the B2G1 doesn't work..

The delay warning from Amazon has seriously been there for weeks. I posted about it at the beginning of February


Sorry man, I had no idea you posted that, nor did I ever study the page..

Downloaded mine last night when the price was listed at $59.99 was pretty sure it would be corrected but as I ad already bought my $50 eShop card (which I got for $45 via ToysRus promo) and was really looking forward to this game and new it would be one I would prefer digital copy of. So anyhow paid $59.99 no tax, -$5 from discount on eShop card, then today got a email saying they would refund $12 because of pricing problem, and then via digital deluxe I will be getting another $5 (possibly $6 because of original $59.99 charge) bringing it down to either $38 or possibly $37 for an awesome game that both me and my wife will get countless hours of fun out of. We played it tonight for about 3-4 hours and it was a blast, by far the best Lego game yet.

Truly a situation unique to the Wii U. So bizarre.

So, I ordered Lego City during the Buy One Get One 50% sale Best Buy had a few weeks ago. About 45 minutes ago, the status changed to 'backordered - ships in one to two weeks'. Yeah, wasn't thrilled. I called Best Buy and they were able to change it to in-store pick up, so I'll be heading out to grab my $25 LC in about an hour from the store 5 minutes away.

It says a lot about the current state of consumer relations that I was actually pretty floored that Best Buy was able to help. I really figured I was screwed. Still, hooray.

Maybe this is the same shipping issue that hit Fire Emblem too? They need to get their act together.

My local Kmart (Twin Falls, ID) had two copies in store, so if your not finding you might try a Kmart if you got one though it was marked at $49.99 and if you spend $50 you get $5 award card at register, not sure if they have a promo specific to this game going on with it as well or not.

What you said was "Wii u delays have hurt wii u more then it has helped the system."

I was just joking because you made it sound like it was odd that delays actually hurt the system more than they have helped. Which . . . yeah, go figure. Normally, delays boost sales and are welcomed by the community, right?

Plus with PS3 remote play you can basically PLay your PS3 games on your PSP Go anywhere you are basically making it a Portable PS3


But Metroid sucks. I consider it Gunpei Yokoi's worst creation, even beating the Virtual Boy.

at least they change their name and not name their systems 1,2,3,4

These "delays" make no sense. There was at least 3 copies at a Walmart in the same strip mall as the GameStop that I pre-ordered my copy at which they say won't be in until Friday.

Ninty needs to get their shit together with these inconsistent game launches. First Fire Emblem, now this.

I will be PISSED if I get screwed out of that.

the sad part is this is not even nintendo or game makers fault the company they pay to produce the disc told them all the way back in jan that they will be delays in printing disc's. To be honest i woud have put back the launch of the game till they knew for sure they would have enough supply for a launch for a game that really is the first game worth getting for wii u since launch.

Son of a bitch. So, I decided to just go to Best Buy and get a copy and, despite the online inventory showing it being available for pickup today, I was given what could possibly be the weirdest excuse in recent months. The kid working electronics said the case showed up with the guides, but where the games were supposed to be, were copies of Forza 4 for the 360. (???)

I'm about to just say screw it and pick up Monster Hunter and just wait for a price drop on this one. I'm just so frustrated and sick of the "one more day" line of crap I've been getting all week.

I noticed that at Best Buy too (not the Forza in its place) but they had the strategy guides and no game copies at 2 locations I stopped at yesterday.

Just check Target store locator. Around noon yesterday, Targets in my area started reporting 'in stock' I called a few that were 'out of stock' (b/c they were closer) and they all said they had missing shipments or lost packages or something. I drove a little further down the road and grabbed one. They had about 6 copies.

Best Buy had my store pick up today (which I converted from online pre-order shipping, since it was going to be delayed). No problems, and I was first in line for store pick up. Now I just have to wait for Pikmin 3.

I would try, but I have credit at Best Buy and Gamestop and I was trying to get it without spending money.

However, I just got a text from GS saying it will be ready for pickup tomorrow PM. So here's hoping...

I'd prefer to give it it's first run on 55" instead of 5".

Yeah, yeah... that's what she said...

So upset about that too. I don't get a lot of alone time with my WiiU, so i was looking forward to knocking this out 1-2 hours at a time from the bedroom. Going to have to make some quality time for it after Bioshock.

Weird question... does this game run 'loudly' for anyone else? There's a definite change in the disc noise from my Wii U when I'm playing this that I don't get with any of the other games I've played. It's like a sort of low rumble. I thought there was, like, a truck outside or something until I realized it was from the system.

It also makes a much more significant and longer series of noises while trying to load on the main Wii U menu.

Is this all normal, or...? I've played the game for a few hours with no hiccups, but it's just strange.

I haven't noticed, probably because my couch is about 15' from the TV/WiiU/etc, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was normal.
