Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Ok, I'll reward Newegg for matching the price. Preordered a copy from them. Amazon, you snooze, you lose.

Thanks op!!

Submitted to Amazon. Not buying it from them but submitted anyway since there's a good chance they'll match this.

Does newegg automatically modify pre order prices? I have an order with them already for the 12 dollars off deal a while back.

edit: Never mind looks like they just added a little lowest price guarantee note.

No mention of any pre order bonus, or I would cancel my amazon order and just go through them. Submitted.

Same here. I don't care about Amazon's pre-order bonus, and I like that Newegg has free shipping and no tax. And I'm pretty sure Newegg's shipping is significantly faster than Toys r' Us.

How do you submit to Amazon? I have a $50 gift card and would love to use it on this.

go to the KoA product page on Amazon for whichever version you want to submit the pm for. Scroll about 80% of the way down the page and look for a box that says "Feedback" (the box has a blue border and light blue background). Then in that box click the link where it says "tell us about a lower price"

I liked the demo but I still wanna wait a bit after release. The price isn't really helping though and I am quite tempted to grab it at this price..

I was going to hold off - but the demo impressed me enough to just go for it. It's one of those games where if I didn't get it now, when it comes out I'll have that "itch" to get it - but will be forced to pay 60. I really wanted to hold off for sub $35, but I'm weak.

I am actually having a friend of mine get this for me at his Gamestop. It's the first new game I've bought at Gamestop in over a year. Only reason is because Curt Schilling and R.A. Salvatore are going to be there signing copies and I can't pass that chance up for a $15 savings.

Also, before anyone asks I am unsure at what Gamestop this is at, he called me while he was running around and never mentioned an actual location.

Have a couple questions.
Does Newegg charge when it ships and do all first run copies come with the Fate Touched Weapons or is that just a pre-order from other retailers? I tried the demo last night and it was pretty good.

Just tried to add one for 360 to my cart and got the following message: "Electronic Arts 014633098907 has been removed from shopping cart due to quantity limitation/insufficient stock. Some combo items might be affected by this."

Looks like they might be sold out for now.

That worries me a little. I had a bad experience with Newegg when Dark Souls came out due to something related to the publisher not supplying enough copies. I don't think this is the same thing, but I have been hesitant to pre-order from Newegg ever since, even though it was more than likely Namco's fault.

Wow, Amazon dropping the ball here. I would've went with them if they matched, but Newegg's a step up from TRU I guess.

Argh, I've been holding on to the $20 DSPREORDER code and decided to finally try to use it for this. It won't let me though, says my order doesn't meet the coupon restrictions.

Oh well, I suppose Amalur can wait. Won't have time to play it for a while anyway.

"....when you compare it (Reckoning) to the three popular fantasy RPGs of our time -- Skyrim, Dark Souls and Dragon Age -- Reckoning easily outclasses all of them in the gameplay department. The competition isn't even remotely close in any respect. "

Sounds like IGN is going to give this at least a 9 with this type of hype (worked for Dark Souls), which will drive sales and help it retain value, especially if other major sources feel the same.

Seems like the game is being universally praised right now. I haven't seen any negative previews yet.
