No copies within 250 miles of STL, but available on the website. GS is sold out.

Quite a few stores in California have copies and as you said, it's available to ship on Bestbuy.com and on Amazon.com, Target.com and Walmart.com.  Maximum Games don't exactly get broad distribution in general beyond the usual online retailers, so I don't know that this particular game is an outlier in that respect.

They recently refreshed. Initial stock just vanished everywhere mostly right away. Assuming they printed more.

They only sent 1-2 copies so it won't always show as available even if a store does have it.

Didn’t know Walmart & Target websites carried it. Was wondering if this would become the new Ys VIII & be worth more than MSRP when it goes out of print.

Well that sucks.. I was putting off buying Ys VIII because I got pretty much every Xseed game on sale/discount but looks like that wasn't there case here. I figured that, especially since this got a NS release, I could still grab the PS4 version for cheap.

I beat the game. Well, one of the three playthrough options/routes you get. I'd say it's fully worth $40 to support the dev. It can be a little brutal at first and you will die a decent amount the first fw hours you play. But it was also quite refreshing to play a game that just let you explore. The magic system is really rewarding as well. There are no levels in the game so you become stronger solely from the gear you find/create both armor and weapon wise, or from the items you learn to craft.

 

Was definitely worth a purchase for me, I plan to go back and restart it soon and play through another of the 2 remaining storyline options.

Is crafting a main part of the game? I have never enjoyed having to farm materials and craft things, I always find it tedious to me. Even though I beat skyrim like 3 or 4 times I never crafted anything because it's never been fun to me.

Only to the point that you want to focus on it. For me, crafting was simply looking up a recipe or two online for weapons primarily and then creating it. Most of them are very simple though where you need for instance 2x an item that drops every time you kill a mob of xxx and then a piece of linen cloth and another item which is everywhere.

 

Food wise you COULD go crazy and craft as much as you want, I stuck to just creating jerky for mostly the entire game which is just 2 salts and 2 pieces of meat and that creates 5 jerky to use in battle. I am not one to scavenge and scrounge for things for crafting either and I still enjoyed it. Most of the good gear I found was in bandit camps or dungeons I found around the world.

Looks like Days Gone CE is only store pickup now at Best Buy.  I am sure there will be some available for order online when it drops.  Then again, maybe not. Might be another god of War Stone Mason Edition type situation.

I'm really trying to decide if I should keep my pre-order on this or not. Like all indications seems to be they made plenty of these. The game looks nice, I'm more of a sucker for the Statue/Steelbook than anything but statue quality on games is so hit or miss and can be from amazing (GoW, DS 3) to just utter trash.

The site actually states either 1 or 2 copies available for the stores in my area that have it.  That started somewhat recently.  It used to just say there were a "few" left, but now if there are 3 or less it will state the exact quantity.

Never ordered from Ubi Store. Would the steelbook be shipped in a box or bubble mailer? How is customer service (if the steelbook is shipped in the latter and arrives damaged)?

Box with air bubble (at least thats how they sent my The Crew 2 Gold Ed). CS response time is slow but should get response within a week.

Just saw an unboxing for MK11 kollectors and I've changed my mind. Gamestop is not allowing a cancellation even though it hasn't shipped. Do I just return it in store or send it back?

Either one works fine, but I'd probably call CS to avoid shipping charges if they required them on this CE like they have on others.

Pretty torn on whether I want to keep it or return it, It looks pretty nice in the video but disappointed that they confirmed its made out of cheap plastic for $200. I will say that only 20K made is pretty rare for the MK CE though, For the last Mortal Kombat there was 70K made of just the European Kollectors Edition and that one actually ended up being pretty rare in the long run, then you have god knows how many of the Coarse MK X CE's made here in North America.

The 20k number though is arbitrary since it seems many went out for free to 'influencers'.

Didn't those also come with a numbered authenticity card too though?

There's no way they sent out more than a few hundred promo copies total which isn't enough to move the needle on a total run of 20K.
