Great thread.

1. Got a damaged FFXII steelbook from BB in the mail.
2. Returned to store for replacement.
3. None in store, on the site, or available for order.
4. Ordered from Amazon with free one day shipping in Best Buy store at the returns counter.

Bravo, Best Buy, your helping Amazon slowly kill you, but at least you make us do it in person.


I mean, that definitely sucks but what'd you expect? They don't hold inventory for defects. Even Amazon does that occasionally.

This is the best looking thread on CAG. Love to window shop all the overpriced video games and wonder how I can justify spending 3x the price for some trinkets that only I will appreciate.

Thousands of people will benefit from all your hard work, hopefully that feeling compensates you for the loss of free time, sleep, job, and/or relationships while maintaining this thread! Thanks!

I'd respond with the idea that Best Buy should just carry sizable inventory for major new releases making it easy to exchange in store but to your point my store in Atlanta never carries much media inventory anymore. That said, this happens enough (even with Amazon) that I'm probably only going to start reserving for in store pickup.

Should books be limited to game specific art books or are we opening that up to general gaming art books?

 

Bitmap Books has SNES/Super Famicom Visual Compendium coming in December and NEO GEO Visual History coming in September. Both have slipcase, hardcover "collector's" variants.

Also, how are we going to handle situations where a game has a CE guide and an artbook? The first post only has one "book" slot. Maybe change it to "[CE] [Guide] [Artbook] [Steelbook]"?

Still wish that FC5 CE wasn't store exclusive. Oh well.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon or also known as Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. A cute SoL about a dragon. Who becomes a maid.

Question: 


Of all the CE/LE you have purchased, which is your favorite and why? 


Mine is FE Fates. Not my favorite FE, but love the exclusivity of two games on one cart + DLC.

Did anyone else get charged the full 50 for FFXII limited steelbook edition from Amazon? I know Amazon was removing prime discount for collector editions but i didnt think it was retroactive. I couldve sworn i had the prime discount when i ordered it.

I was charged $39.87 for the FFXII steelbook. Had Prime when I ordered, not when it shipped. And then they refunded me 12 cents.

 

I did, however, pay completely with a gift card long before release.

But seriously, I appreciate all the gratitude. It didn't really dawn on me until the 3rd hour how long the first post would take. The forum code doesn't always instantly link to the website, so I had to preview the post each time I created a link, otherwise I'd lose the URL. It gets way too absurdly big so I use google shortener to save on characters. 

 

Mmmmmm...wait I don't smell anything.

 

@Vogyn - In the first post, how will you handle if a CE is available at more than one location?

Input it like CE2, CE3, Book2, Book3. I tested using the actual website's name like Amazon, Best Buy, Square Enix. If multiple links are used with long names, it would make a 2nd line. I'd really like to keep it one line per game as much as possible due to how neat it is. Also I'd have to say the name with what it is in the title, otherwise no one would know what they're clicking on. 'Amazon CE, 'Square Enix Guide', which makes it longer and easier to get a 2nd or 3rd line. 

 

I can test it out today and see. This is more for you guys, not me.

#foreveralone so its all good.

I'll add those. That's probably how it'll end up.  I'd like to keep it one line per game, but it may be unavoidable. 

 

Quoting makes this post as long as the first. I'll add the Battlefield 1 CE, the EU versions of Ultra Sun/Moon Dual Packs, and I'll be adding more retailer links, more CEs, and everything else. I just wanted to hurry up and post what I had then take a breather. This thread should look a bit better in an hour or two, as well as more practical. Give me a minute.
