I just checked and my order status shows 17.99 for the ME2 CE guide. I ordered on 1/8 when it was 19.49. We should be good!

ordered it the other day. Contact amazon about wanting it on release day, becaues i ordered the game.. they told me to put 1 day shipping then email them the order number and it would be free one day shipping, since there was no RDD on the guide

This. Now to decide on if I start the game before the guide shows up, or wait for the guide...

If you're going to do multiple playthroughs, why not start the first one without a guide? I did that with ME 1 and used the guide the next 2.5 times through. =]

Since I couldn't add the guide to my previous order, I ordered it separately. I added in the Mass Effect: Ascension book to get free shipping. It's too bad it's only available in the paperback version. I prefer hardcover books.

This is what laptops are for!

I agree when I still used(and had) a laptop that what I did. I would never have bought a guide when I still had a laptop. After Fallout 3 and no laptop (many trips up and down the stairs), I have decided to buy guides for RPG's now.

How many Mass Effect books are there? I would be intersested in reading them if they are a good read.

Two, though I'm not sure if the second one is actually out yet or not. I haven't read any of them so I can't comment on if they are good though :P

just ordered another one :D or shall I say my 2nd one.

After the nice spike in value the DA:O CE guide got it was a no brainer to get a 2nd since it is the same price as the regular edition guide would have cost me tonight when I pick my game up.

There are two out so far, with a third coming very soon. The first book was the backstory of Anderson and Saren detailing the mission that is mentioned briefly during the first game. The second book introduces the Illusive Man and is a sorta prequel to the second game, with the female scientist from the first book reappearing.

The third book is a direct sequel of the second book and details what happens to those who go against the Illusive Man.

I usually never bUy these but picked up the Dragon Age: Origins Collector's guide when it was on sale and found it fairly useful. So what the hell, in for one of these.

I chose 2 day shipping when I placed my order today using Amazon prime, and I just got a notification that I'll be receiving it tomorrow. Thank you Amazon, you're amazing.

I didn't want to play the waiting game. I emailed them and they sent a $1.80 credit on my card, making it $17 after GB. On the side note, I also emailed them on the Toy Story blu-ray deal, and they marked it $5 less than the deal!

Yeah, but I bought the RE5 collector's guide, and it's still selling below retail, so don't get your hopes up.

True...but RE5 is not ME2

17.99 is a steal regardless for a 320 page hardcover. There's 90 left at the moment.

Got my guide this morning, and got a price adjustment.
This is a sweet guide, it's also got this huge poster with it.

I'm trying to avoid spoiling the end of the game... :lol:

in stock online and available for instore pickup, my estimated delivery date for my amazon order is feb1st, and i didnt want to wait, so i got it at BB with instore pickup. and yeah its the collectors edition.

if i cant cancel my amazon order, i will just ebay it, and will probably not even break even but whatever. or keep one sealed as a collection piece but that is just not practical. dunno about the guide, i got the LE guide for mass effect 1 off amazon when it was clearanced out for 5 bucks so i will wait on that


edit, my delivery estimate from amazon
Shipment #1:
1 item - delivery estimate: February 8, 2010 - February 12, 2010

screw that noise, i am not waiting 2 weeks, and they said i could not cancel it, and it would not ship until feb 1st. amazon blows this time around(tho i usually like them)

Yeah I agree. Look at the prices for The DragonAge Collectors Guide. Best bet is ME2 C Guide becomes more rare than DragonAge's.

Amazon has some great prices but this kind of crap is annoying.
The CSR said he couldn't give me the $2 credit back but instead added $2 credit for my next purchase. I can deal with that. I really wish these people knew their own policies though. :bomb:

18 dollars for a book? meh i know its usually 30 bucks normally but still that is a ton for a guide, but i think guides are way over priced for the most part.

It's supposed to adjust on its own, though I've seen it work less than 100% of the time, which is why I email them.

Email them again, and include this URL in your email, which is the terms and conditions for their Pre-Order Price Guarantee:
http://www.amazon.co...p/AWT354OR7BM1U

For the link-lazy:

Pre-order Price Guarantee
Amazon.com's price for not-yet-released items sometimes changes between the time the item is listed for sale and the time it is released and shipped. Whenever you pre-order a book, CD, video, DVD, software, or video game, the price we charge when we ship it to you will be the lowest price offered by Amazon.com between the time you placed your order and the end of the day of the release date. A pre-order price guarantee message will appear on your Order Summary during the checkout process. If you use 1-Click ordering, pre-order price protection will be automatically applied. The order summary in Your Account will reflect the lowest price within 24 hours of the price change.


Terms and Conditions:

  • Pre-order Price Guarantee applies only to items sold by Amazon.com, and not to items (or prices) offered by other sellers on our site. Does not apply to any products purchased at Amazon.com's other sites, including Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.ca, or any other web site operated by Amazon.com or its affiliates.
  • Pre-order Price Guarantee applies only to not-yet-released books, CDs, videos, DVDs, software, and video games sold by Amazon.com. It does not apply to other product lines or to items that have already been released.
  • Pre-order Price Guarantee applies only to qualifying items displaying the offer message on their product detail pages. Items that do not display the offer message do not qualify, regardless of the nature of the items.
  • If your order enters the shipping process before the release date and the price is lowered before the end of the day of the release date, we will automatically refund your credit card for the difference between the price you were charged and the release-date price. If you did not use a credit card to pay for your order, please contact Customer Service.

Bolded sections are the ones of importance. In theory, it's supposed to auto-adjust and credit you back, though I've had numerous orders where they didn't auto-adjust it after the fact and I had to email them and complain until they did. I've found it's much better to do it in advance, on the day of the drop, so there's no question it being at the lowest price by the release date.

You're supposed to get that money back to your credit card, not as a future promotional credit. If you have no luck with the emails, call them. Make sure you have a screen cap of the price today, as backup.
