Finally showed up on amazon.ca with $5 discount. Still better than ebgames price.

The Ys games are like one half hack-n-slash and one half JRPG, right? How much replay value is there usually, and are they long games?

As much as a typical game.


You may play it again but generally once the game is completely beaten there's not much more to do. Kinda like Xenoblade D=.

Thankfully the game is quite long (its xseed for heaven sakes)

It's 5$ cheaper but it'll come all banged up thanks to amazon's shitty shipping. Gonna stay with EB games in-store pickup.

Hmm, I usually get fat games like this in boxes with air bubbles from Amazon, which show up in good shape. EB is obviously safe, though... but I am soooo lazy. ;)

I often order 2 or 3 in a single order, and they end up coming in a big box with enough air cushions. All you have to do is print a return label and keep the best one. :)

Not sure how it works in Canada, but in the US, you'd have to pay for return shipping, so shipping kill it :rofl:

amazon.ca covers shipping for damaged item returns.

Yeah, but ordering 2-3 should ensure boxed shipping, and probably no or minimal damages. I can understand wanting multiples, but if returning is a serious option why would you want a random YMMV amount? Any resends Amazon would possibly send out may be singles, and get sent in a bubble mailer...

 

It's just not worth Fuck ing around with everything you need to do to save $5. IMO EB is the correct lazy choice.

Only if a single copy of the game doesn't come in a box from Amazon, which in my experience (most of these XSEED premium edition PSP games) it usually has.

I'm just giving out options. It's up to you whatever you do.

 

My Zelda Wind Waker LE from ebgames came with crappy packaging and the LE box is crushed. I try to avoid eb as much as possible but didn't have a choice for zelda.

Lucky. My kingdom hearts LE and Killer Is Dead launch LE from amazon.ca both looked disgusting.

:( Now I'm worried. I think I'm still going to keep my preorder from there just to see what happens. For science!

 

Unrelated story about in-store pickup being damaged from EB. I had pre-ordered the Fallout: New Vegas CE from them, and when I picked it up, I noticed that the box had a big slit up one side. I brought it back in and pointed it out and asked to exchange it for an undamaged one. He grabbed me another one and it had the same slit. Then he started looking at the rest and they had all been cut. Apparently the worker who unpacked the shipment used a utility knife to slice side of one of the shipping boxes open, damaging every single CE inside. :(

I'm not sure how it's $5 cheaper than EBGames. The guy wants $5.54 in S&H, making it pretty much the same price.

There was free super-saver shipping from Amazon when I pre-ordered. Looks like they've run out of stock and farmed the item out to a third party now?

I just checked, and Best Buy has this up for pre-order. If I can pre-order in store for it, I'll get it from them instead of EB. I have $35 in gift certificates I want to use.

hmmm... I wonder which is better... EB Games seems more reliable then bestbuy... though bestbuy has never really let me down with premium editions.

When I received Hakuoki LE 3DS from Best Buy it came in a super secure cardboard envelope (like the old amazon packaging), no dents or shitty corners.

 

Why can't they always do that?

Same here. Did you order yours during the 10% off Thanksgiving sale also?

I ended up leaving my pre-order with EBGames. After Ubisoft delaying Watch Dogs to 2014. I paid off my pre-order with them and getting Batman Origins instead.

I'm so tempted to preorder this, despite not even owning a Vita.  I adored Ys Seven, and this looks really good, too!

Hey, if it helps, I'm buying a Vita just for Ys Celceta... but it might have to wait until early next year. Not sure which model I want, waiting to see if the new one comes here and what people think about it.

Haha awesome.  There aren't too many Vita games that interest me right now, however I was going to wait and eventually get the slim, just because I want the pink one.  I think I will preorder Celceta to ensure I get the LE.  I don't mind buying games before owning the system (e.g. I also have P4G).

The new one doesn't have an oled screen...that should make your decision easier.

Amazon.ca just cancelled my order for this. That's probably worse than it coming in a squashed box.

The hell? They still list the release date as November 5th. So maybe they stupidly think they just didn't get any in stock...?

Smart man. I had faith that they would ship my package securely without damaging it, but I didn't foresee them not getting any stock. :)

 

I put in a last-minute order through Amazon.com... so if they don't cancel it on me as well, I should manage to get a copy... I'll just be paying extra shipping and duty. :(
