Speaking of damaged books from Amazon, my NES Encyclopedia arrived today....in a bubble mailer. Sure enough, the bottom right front (and back) covers are damaged and pushed in. Guess I will see if they will ship me a new one in a box, or at least offer a discount since this is not acceptable for a new product. Man, Amazon started their business with books, its a shame they treat them so bad now.
The book itself is really quite nice. I look forward to reading though it eventually.
They may give you a discount credit, but don't even bother to ask about a box, as CS does not talk to shipping, so any promises made there will not be honored by other departments sadly. There's no harm in asking I suppose, as I got an almost $200 order free years ago from a CS supervisor promising me one thing, and having to deliver on another for my damaged order. At this point I've known for years how Amazon does things, so I try my best with tips & tricks when ordering to not have issues, but it no longer works all that often, as they are just shit on so many levels at this point.
Yeah, this order is actually one of my last "2" books ordered ones, as I was unsure at the time how supply would be for this, so I ordered 2 just in case. I may get both damaged, or maybe 1 of the 2 will be OK, it's always a crap shoot with Amazon. Hell, my order hasn't even shipped yet for this book, so I'm not that hopeful for no Fuckups, but time will tell.
I saw a video awhile back from the creator, and yeah this book really surprised me, as that was when I actually ordered. I see books like this all the time that do a bare minimum content wise(and production values), but this looks like a top shelf effort, and deserves the support.
