River City: Rival Showdown (3DS) (with keychain) is up for preorder on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.c...=river city 3ds


This is one of the reasons I'm so happy I'm out of my prime as soon as it expires, even though I'm pretty sure they're going to try and auto renew it. How the Fuck can a company as big as amazon not have their preorder discount listed immediately at preorder creation?! Fuck them

They stopped the discount on limited/special editions. It's pretty clear that a bonus keychain really isn't the target of that policy change, but calling it "limited edition" probably automatically tripped some algorithm. Who knows if they'll notice or change it.

 

Between the Prime discount being so uneven, and their poor handling of preorders (they never hold any copies back to replace damaged or stolen shipments, so you're SOL if that happens / claiming they couldn't fulfill the SNES Mini preorders yet somehow boatloads showed up for their Treasure Trucks), plus sales taxes and shoddy packaging, I'm buying from other places more and more and Amazon less. I can't believe I'm actually shopping at Best Buy again.

Yeah, Amazon leaves a sour taste in my mouth more often than not, but this year being my first with Prime, I've found it "solid". We cut cable this year, and since I need shipping supplies pretty regularly, I think I would get it again next year.

 

Getting the discount on games was really the 3rd reason I found to get Prime, and I've been using it for a handful of items where the prime discount at launch is to good to pass up, or for games where there's a day one edition, and I don't want to miss out on the extra's.

 

If I was using it exclusively for games, I would say it's probably not worth it. But combined with my other needs, it's been a good buy. I would say the 2 day shipping has been my favorite feature really, as sometimes I need items quickly, and that helps to keep me from having to pay for faster shipping out of pocket.

most likely on amazon only because the last River City on 3DS that came out is only on amazon and natsume store. same goes for Wild Guns.

A folded up pouch or bag is going to take up a ton more space and be harder to stack flat than paper 3D glases, a manual, and a mini CD.


3D glasses, a manual, a CD, and a thick PVC keychain. Switch cases are barely more than a centimeter thick and only half of the case is actually available for storage - the other half with the cartridge doesn't have any usable space for extras.

Nice find.  Added it to my want list.  I doubt we'll get the prime discount since Natsume kind of screwed us out of that last year with the last 3DS RC game and Wildguns on PS4.   But... I'm still going to wait a few days before locking in a preorder just in case we get it.

Got Raiden v from gamestop today. I don't know why it's been such a huge fucking problem for me to get this game but it's been a pain at every juncture. Seems like most stores only had one copy btw. I don't know how small of a print run it was but it's a fun game and forgiving for shmup boobs with unlimited continues.

Just got OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition PS4 for $8.99 shipped from shop4america dot com. PayPal is a payment option so it’s safe. I can vouch for the site too as I’ve ordered a few games from them. Usually only takes 2-3 weeks for my games to arrive. Not bad considering they’re based out of the U.K. & I’m on the east coast.

Also for those more comfortable ordering from eBay he has em on there for $9.99 free shipping. Just search : OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition PS4.

But heads up everyone it’s the U.K. version so as long as you don’t care about the lil rating symbol on the front cover being different you’re good to go since PS4 games are region free.

I just got Tiny Barbarian DX today & it had some extras crammed inside including an instruction manual, a tiny cloth pouch & a keychain in a clear plastic bag. Everything seemed to fit fine although my keychain had some spots of slight discoloration possibly due to being so compressed within the case. No biggie since my cover art & case seem fine. No creasing, bulge or dent thankfully. Reverse cover art too which is always a nice touch.

Also, the game came in a weird Y-fold sealed bag of sorts since it was looser than a traditional wrapped Y-fold game that has no extras. It had a lil sticker on the wrapping that looks like the keychain & says “FREEBEES INSIDE”

Agreed.. I usually throw them out or give them away.

At least a keychain is something that can be used.  My oldest son begged me for one of the keychains GS bundled in with my Fire Emblem Fates SE.  He seemed super happy when I finally gave it to him.  Seems like all three of my kids like the keychains.  Of course around here the HS kids are big into their keychains with an extra emphasis on thick decorative lanyards (typically with something anime, gaming or comics on them).

 

Whatever the case I'll take a free keychain as long as it doesn't bump up the price I was already expecting to pay for the physical game.

That morph ball keychain is one of the coolest I’ve seen in years. I’m actually using it and I haven’t had a keychain since my pewter WoW one broke off its chain in the late 00s.

I haven't received a shipping notice either.  I'm assuming they're just working their way through the orders slowly.

Same for me, as I've never not gotten an order at Fangamer, and no reason to think it is going to start now. I just have to wait, and it will arrive at some point.

Still waiting for a shipping notice on my Undertale order as well.  And yes, I was in the first batch as I ordered right when it went up.

I've also bought quite a few things from Fangamer and never had any issues. The original email they sent at the end of September mentioned that they expected shipping to last "a few weeks" for just the first wave of orders. So yeah, it's probably best for people to just sit tight a little while longer. Based on my previous experiences with them, the wait is probably due to them actually giving a crap about their packaging...which is always appreciated!

Trophies stack with USA digital?

Edit: answered my own question, I guess the physical stacks. Hopefully it's the same for euro edition. I'm in.

The custom boxes for individual vita games were fantastic.  I think overall they do, indeed, care about about their packaging.   Adding to this, I don't think they send a shipping notice until an item actually is going out the door to ship.  So another reason not to panic, though it also clearly states on their site:

 

"Orders will take some extra time to process, as we are extremely busy at this time. Thank you for your patience!"

 

Speaking of Fangamer, they still show Broken Age for PS4 and Vita as available.  I guess the prices being bad (for resellers, good for collectors) on ebay ... they just aren't selling.

If you check out Fangamer's twitter, they have been transparent regarding the Undertale shipping. They are still shipping out the first wave of orders (the ones that said late September). It looks like they're shipping CE first and then standard editions (for PS4 at least).

See I was thinking the opposite. Seems most people are getting their standards and my CE hasn't shipped (PS4). I was definitely in within the first 30 minutes too. I wonder how exactly they prioritize.

Doesn’t the CE release in December though?

Just double checked. It does unless you ordered before noon on 7/20. Personally I’m waiting till closer to release. Why let them hang on to my money for months before giving me the product?

Hmmm, my order contains a PS4 CE and a Vita standard.  I received the "check your address" email in September.  Still waiting on shipping notification.....  Can't wait, excited to play this.

Yeah, this is for sure on my "open soon" list of games, but I'm currently playing a few others first, so the delay isn't to bad thus far. Now my Ys bundle coming from LRG is a different matter entirely. LOL
