Well I decided to just cancel my Mercenary Edition order from Newegg. I still want to get the game but decided to plow through some of my backlog first. Hopefully by the end of the year the Mercenary Edition will be $35 or the standard will be $25 on Amazon.

I wouldn't have been pissed off If Newegg had said, "Due to overwhelming demand we had to cancel your preorder". Instead, they said I cancelled it. The rep on that chat more/less called me a liar too.

My order from Newegg is still pending, no e-mails, no charges, just pending.

I'm guessing you are on the east coast, their front page has a warning about a delay in shipping. There is a chance that the games haven't reached the warehouse yet.

Ragnarok was my first and will be my last preorder from newegg. The communication was crap, it did not ship and I cancelled.


Eh, give 'em another chance. That's one experience. I've had 10 great ones so far, with many more to come. My anecdotal evidence > yours... lol

i always get my game 1-2 days after release when i pre-order from newegg...never had any shipping time issues with them

now if they could get their packaging in order...sometimes they should be using a box instead of a bubble envelope...

I live in the Midwest but my guess would be that the distribution place is in the east.

Ys I and II LE was actually limited.


Yes, but it was hovering around $20-25 brand new for the LE for quite a while. I already bought it when it first came out anyway.

Agreed.

Although, somehow, my Mercenary Edition copy arrived in perfect condition despite being put in a bubble envelope. *shrug

disgaea 4 for $19.90 at play asia
http://www.play-asia...en-70-46gt.html


Wow that's tempting. Bought the game when it first came out, got a friend's angel flonne code, beat the game, did a LITTLE bit of post-game gridning, then sold it. Somewhat tempted to pick this up again... although with shipping bringing it up to $25, and "ships in 1-2 weeks" plus the "up to 21 days" cheap shipping option, I'd be looking at a month+ wait to save $10 vs the Amazon price (and I have prime, so 30+ days vs 2 days). And I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up on sale this xmas.

That said, still very tempting. :cold: Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

I wouldn't be surprised to see the game on sale for black Friday. How low? Well it is 35 there now so I think 20-25 is reasonable.

That being said I bought the game when it first came out and thought it was well worth the price.

I got my Mercenary Edition today from newegg. As usual it was shipped in a bubble mailer and the box got a small dent on it. I'm not complaining just think newegg would use a box to ship CE by now. The way I look at it is my game could have arrived in way worse condition so a small dent isn't the end of the world.

Hey guys - is this bullshit? Don't think it's legit but I missed it at G'stop and Amzon - thought they were the only 2 retailers...

It's been $20 at Amazon at before and it will likely happen again.

I've never had problems at cduniverse back when I shopped there but I would expect orders of that to be cancelled.

Mine shipped two days ago. Maybe that's for a second shipment?

Mine shipped. It's probably cause of Sandy and complaints, etc.

Yep, their front page has a notification that they are experiencing shipping delays due to Sandy.

Well I knew about the shipping delays, but it was odd seeing you guys already received the package. I already confirmed with them, it was because of Sandy, oh well.

Sine Mora (PC) pre-order @ Greenmangaming for $10.xx after coupon. If you have stuff to trade in, you can also knock it down lower.

I believe they have 2 warehouses, one in CA (I think) and one in NJ.

I just got Disgaea 3 and only played about a hour so far. If I like it I'll get Disgaea 4 when it's on sale for under $20.

I watched a few other games that dropped first in price on playasia before dropping over here. So I'm hoping for $20 or less so I can pick up Disgaea 4 before it goes OOP.

Play-Asia had pre-orders of it as well for a while, but it was around $110 shipped to the US.

I put in an order at CD Universe just in case, we'll see what happens. I'll consider it a nice surprise if it actually ships.

Ok cool - I ordered it too. I have a feeling it is a mistake. But, we shall see...

NOTE: My biggest 'fear' is that they will ship me the regular version... for the cost of the Premium one. 11/20, a day of intrigue and mystery...

Thx! Canceled on goHastings since they charge tax while this site doesn't. If it gets canceled then no biggie since it's a gift but can always get the regular edition later.

If you "kinda" like Disgaea 3 you should buy Disgaea 4 then. Many improvements made it a much better game. The graphics are better, gameplay, pirate world, customization and humor was knocked up a good notch in 4.
