It's just a guide. A couple dents isn't that big a deal. I think it depends more on the trip and care taken by the delivery process than the packaging. Some workers treat packages like garbage. Toss them around, etc.

But it's not some rare collector's item, so I wouldn't make a big deal with a few dents in a strategy guide.


This is a board full of people who cried when their cardboard box from Skyward Sword with Wii Motion Plus controller was slightly dented.

I mean I won't mind but I don't want big dents on it, it will drive me crazy just looking a t it.

I'm more concerned on if it's going to come undamaged due to how it's package since amazon never packages anything correctly from the last few items I've received. If it has like a couple small dents you have to look at it closely to tell I won't mind but something that's completely dented up I'll be mad. Due to how some workers are careless plus how amazon packs stuff just gets me worried sometimes.

Skyward Sword is a collectors edition, i dont blame people at all for being upset about a collectors edition item, which a lot of people like to display, coming in dented/damaged

Yea Man, if your paying good honest money for something, why the heck would you not mind it being damaged or dented. I ALWAYS look for the best paint/condition/sewing/printing with anything I buy.

Putting it in Amazons and USPS/UPSs hands is something i dont tend to do. ITs gotta be a really great price usually for me to order delicate things online. Ive gotten way too many damaged items from Amazon to not be weary about them. Yes I can get the guide for 24-25 dollars from them, But I can get it at gamestop for 25-30(with coupons I have/trade credit etc), pick the best condition and have in n hand right away.

After working at Amazon, I'll tell you now that some packers don't know what they're doing. I've seen packages come down the flat sorter that were busted open, because people didn't put them in the correct size box, or tried to stuff as many things in a box they could. Plus people working in loading the trucks can be rough as hell with packages. I'm sure it just wasn't at the facility I worked in, either.

I don't even bother with amazon now due to the sales tax but I had to go with amazon with this one. Plus Gamestop guides are always full price and I never have coupons

Sounds right. I ordered SFxT CE and it came in a box smaller than the box the game came with. My ME3 was in a box 3x bigger than it with no protective packaging.

I'd love to have all my items pristine too, but what can you do? You can't control how things ship or are transported. Whether it be to your house or from the factory to the distributors. It isn't a big deal. My Skyward Sword has a little crease in the back and it is what it is. Worrying about this kinda stuff will have you looking like Dick Cheney by the age of 40.

Ordered this and the game last night on Amazon. I only play about 1 JRPG a year so I hope I'm making the right call with this game. I liked the demo even though I usually prefer turn based strategy over real time combat in rpg's like this (except I did love FFXIII's combat).


Same here, I did a lot of research, and I kinda did enjoy the capturing monster and using them in battle part of FFXIII-2's combat, so I am actually looking forward to this game expanding on that but with a better storyline (I enjoyed XIII-2's storyline but it is still confusing to me and not excellent but fair at best.)

oh and about the guide, well I am getting worried now as I checked my order (and the game is literally hours away with my release delivery)

and I haven't even been charged for the Guide yet and I ordered it with the game with the release delivery, the guide still has not been shipped yet (which would explain not being charged...) and now the guide is showing as Out of Stock....I really hope Amazon pulls through and this thing gets shipped by tomorrow... :|

--edit--
and the plot thickens... not only is it out of stock but Amazon won't be getting any more of these guides till at least 30-60 days... "Usually ships within 1 to 2 months.
Ships from and sold by Amazon.com."

Sigh, well mine is at least shipping soon now with a pending charge. Would have liked to get it day one since that was the estimate but I can't complain too much since I probably won't end up actually starting the game until this weekend. I'd be kinda pissed though had I gone and gotten the game at Gamestop this morning like I had originally planned.

...Does anyone know how to call DR and find out about shipping times or anything?

Haha, yes, I have heard the horror stories, but I'm not really a hardcore collector of CEs, I just don't have the space. So I want the book to actually use, and I'm giving the stuffed drippy (drooping...the guy with the nose lantern) to my baby cousin. I mostly just want to know when it will get here, you know?

But the support for them on the namco store is just an email address.

It's not a rare collector's item YET. Guides eventually go out of print especially JRPG guides. They go out of print even faster due to lack of demand and the fact that this is hardcover means Prima is least likely to keep printing this for years to come if the demand isn't there.


So I'd like to have my guide in great condition. I mean many people actually bought the guide just for collector's purpose. Look at how much Bayonetta's guide goes for now or the Deus Ex: Human Revolution hardcover guide.

The pre-order was 7 months ago, OF COURSE many people's payment info would have changed since then.

This is unthinkable they did not give us the chance to fix this. Absolutely pathetic on their part. You blew it Namco, I'm buying this crap used for $15 now

Guide? Probably not. Unless the guide had release date delivery, which I've never seen on any guide, then you have to wait whatever shipping you chose. I doubt even people with 2 day delivery will see it by Today or tomorrow.

This is ridiculous. And unfortunately explains where all the extras for last weeks sale came from. They could have easily sent out w-mails instead of settting up a new sale and keeping twitter updates of remaining stock.

I paid via paypal so i should be ok..
