I have a Tenso account and cannot for the life of me figure out everything that I need to put into the address fields when signing up to order from Nintendo. 

 

Can someone please help?

The Amazon inspected sticker means it was a return or damaged item. Did you buy from Warehouse deals? My Zelda special edition came that way, I complained and got $20 off.

Yeah that's real shitty. I had ordered another warehouse deals Zelda Special Edition. It arrived with no game or coin inside and all the items were used. Not worth $80 bucks for that so I'm returning it.

Did you check out the tutorials on their website? Should be able to match up the correct sections to fill out even if you don't know Japanese.

Amazon.com needs to learn from Amazon.jp. everything I've ever ordered there comes amazingly well packed.

Yes. I was able to piece together most of it, but with the amount of money I'd be wasting if something was wrong I am not willing to guess on the portions that didn't fully translate for me using Google Translate. 

 

I sent screenshots to Tenso asking for help from them. Hopefully I'll get a reply before it's unavailable at the Nintendo website.

I remember when Amazon packaged really well all the time like 7-8 years ago. Collector edition games and guides would be shrinkwrapped to a flat thick piece of cardboard that was slightly larger than the game itself. Then that would be put in a box that was the same size as the flat cardboard piece. The item could not move at all in the box and there was space around the game as well. I specifically remember Demon Souls CE coming in like this. The game was perfect condition upon arrival. Obviously this method takes more time and effort, but I never worried about damage from shipping.

I used to get stuff packaged like that from Amazon, but that was just for average items actually. Maybe a game here and there, but mostly ass shipping as it is now. I do agree it was better back then overall, but I never thought it was great, as even back then, I got damages all the time.

Bezos needed that extra push to be a $1 billion dollar man! IDC what people say about him, his company has gone to shit and all the exposés coming out now about working conditions need to be investigated. They're truly the Walmart of online.

I think it varied as more fulfillment centers opened up.  They obviously did care about the condition of the item early on.  I remember Amazon was a problem-free experience back then for the most part.  Then it slowly devolved.  The shrink-wrapping to a piece of cardboard stopped and they started relying on cardboard mailers.  Then the cardboard mailers disappeared and media goes in a plastic bag.  Probably over half of the media I buy comes with some kind of damage (my spend has decreased dramatically).  It does show a complete lack of caring about item condition.  I get why - they know that most customers aren't going to return something for a crushed corner and will only care if the item actually works.  I just keep returning - I know many are scared of being banned, which I've always found ridiculous... being scared of a retailer blacklisting you because they provide poor packaging.  I don't tolerate damage due to poor packaging and won't - if they want less returns, they can package better... 

 

Every once in awhile (maybe once a year), I'll get something well packaged and be in shock, hoping they changed.  Nope.  There must just be some fulfillment centers out there that package well and I rarely receive something from them.  

 

I'll never order a Nintendo CE from Amazon.  A CE would have to be large enough to not fit in an envelope before I'd even risk it.  There was a time when I would've thought Xenoblade wouldn't be envelope worthy, but not anymore.

They just put a shipping label on it? damn that's ghetto lol

I returned the crushed one I got from BB and asked them to exchange it, The new one I got is still kinda dented but not as bad as the original one i got so I'll keep it.

Yeah, you may be right on the fulfillment centers, as we got ours awhile back. But like I said, my packaging was never that great to start with, so I can't say for sure having a center in my town made it worse. I do miss my tax free items, as once they opened shop here, that went away ASAP! LOL

 

The one benefit I've seen of having a center locally, is that I have gotten several items in the last year in bubble mailers, and the damage rate has been very low. As they use their own drivers to deliver, so it's thrown in a mailer, then handed off to the driver, then I get it. So it takes USPS, FedEX and UPS and there poor handling out of the equation, and the results have been rather good honestly.

 

I'm of the same mind set as well in regards to reporting damages, as being banned never enters my mind. My returned items make up maybe 1% of my years purchases which are easily well in to the thousands. I get all kinds of stuff damaged, but I keep it most of the time, as condition is not an issue for most things. Amazon also sends out those packaging survey's which are a complete joke, as I swear for everyone I've ever filled out, their shipping has gotten worse and worse.

I saw this game listed on Gamefly a while ago, and figured it must be another game with the same name.  I'm really excited to grab this game, but I don't think I'll go for the CE.  I think the standard edition is only supposed to be 30 bucks.  Also, I'm shocked they didn't get the new expansion ready for the console launch and include that in the CE.

Ughhh why do all the CEs I want have to be Japanese imports. Would love to know if the Dragon's Crown one would have an English menu option but there's probably no way to tell until closer to release eh?
