BestBuy.com order shipped. Ordered yesterday. It will probably take a week to get here but I don't mind.

Any news on the bundle coming to Gamestop today? There is a blizzard coming in the Northeast and I would hate to have to drive on Friday to get it.


Not sure about the rest of the east coast, but stopped by my local GameStop at lunch and was told my bundle wouldn't be in until tomorrow.

My guys says if not tomorrow, Friday for sure. His store is holding all of the artbooks and guaranteed that I'll have one when I pick up my bundle tomorrow.

Mine just shipped too, im glad i mentioned it here now so a few of you could order one before it sold out.

I never received a call either from GameStop about my pre-order. I just called when they opened this morning, found out they got their shipment, and fired right over. The guy totally forgot about the artbook, and thanked me when I reminded him about it, lol. I love my GameStop. :)


Another old trick. "oh you were supposed to get an artbook with this, let me check, thanks for reminding me". Usually a sign of they dont have enough, or an incompetent employee.

Hmmm, to order from best buy using a rewards certificate, or wait for amazon to ship it out and hopefully compensate us with some amazon credit.


I just cancelled my amazon order. I talked to a CS (i posted it a few pages back) and i told them that 1 day shipping doesnt help and id prefer some kind of credit. They wouldnt budge on the credit. I would just order it from BB while you can (if its still up).

Apparently someone got a $10 credit in addition to one day shipping upgrade. Also supposedly they'll have stock coming in on the 12th. Probably will stick with Amazon.

Already finished the game today - took me just a few minutes under 20 hours to complete, but I didn't go through all of the sidequests (probably about half, if that). Going to play through it again soon, especially after more DLC comes out.

On that note, more DLC is out now. There's the Roy DLC for $2.50, or a pack that gives you the Roy DLC + what comes out next week for $4.00 (so you save a dollar, if that wasn't clear).

My regular game arrived with the artbook thankfully, the artbook is small but the art is really nice and high quality. I think I was the only person to order at my GS. Judging by the store locator almost no store around here got any copies.

Newegg still has them but they are still in "pre-order" mode.

Release date now shows Feb 12.

Woo, nice. God damnit im gonna just have to open and use this thing when it comes in. Shitty digital copy or no. I too was told it should be in today. 3am, i better get to bed, i'll call GS around noon or so probably. They dont even open till 10am. Kinda sucks i shredded up my right hand. Thumb and pointer finger. 2 very important digits for playing a handheld >_<

I ordered some hori 3ds screen protectors direct through them, should arrive shortly. I had planned on putting them on immediately but im probably gonna want to play it before they arrive. Is it fine to put a screen protector on a system after you've used it a bit?

Just refrain from carving out the bottom screen with a stylus and you'll be fine. All you really have to do is make sure to clean the screens first.

The system itself is very nice. Definitely worth every penny. If I were you, since I read you're a collector, I would invest on a full body protector like Zagg to protect the outer shell. I installed mine yesterday and it still looks nice. Unfortunately I installed the screen protectors from Zagg and the one for the touch screen isn't that great since the little rubber like screen protector causes friction when I slide the stylus on it.

So, I will end up getting some Hori screen protectors too. It shouldn't be a problem as long as you clean the screen before you install it to avoid lint and what not. I would also put a micro-fiber cloth between the 3DS when you close it to avoid the top screen from getting scratched. Mine already show's those scratches on the upper screen protector. :whee:

I'm doing my damnedest to resist pre-ordering one from NewEgg.

I told myself early this year I was going to try to curb my frivolous spending as much as possible.

You can always grab a copy from the e-shop at a later date, even if this sells out and you can't find a retail copy anywhere.

Might be confused by your statement. He means that they only got a few physical copies and won't be getting more. The rest will have to settle for a code for a digital copy or getting their money back.

Of course, it's a Slidecage comment. So.......don't believe what he wrote.
