Dunno. Had no problems from my phone.

Yeah, it apparently worked on mobile for a few minutes.  It's sold out again though.

When I try to check out says product not available for purchase. I think it's a glitch. I dont even know why I try to order from gamestop anymore.

I buy maybe 2 or 3 games a year from them and those are like sekiro ce because I wanted the sword bonus.

 

I save money by not shopping there. I wont even go in a store anymore.

I dont go in stores anymore ether. Tired of full price gutted games. And giant stickers all over everything. Would be nice to get collectables with them on there.

People still play WoW? With all the constant nerf heavy handedness over the decades is there even anything left? I quit WoW after 3 years when they gutted Illumination back in Ulduar.

 

I've found FF XIV a far far superior experience, esp with the Ultimate fights, story and music quality, longer release and raid cycles with focus on quality over quantity and straight to the point savage raids, less frantic and less cramped weekly clear "todo" list that doesn't feel like a 2nd job because of too much content at once, relative lack of permanent missables. And longer term and less heavy handed tuning approach that doesnt just knee jerk overcompensate nerf hammer everything into the ground daily or weekly in response to class/job/role envy and haves vs have nots bickering on the internet, and just a general trend towards QoL game wide.  And most importantly the segregation of PVP and PVE that keeps the PVE experience 100% immunized against the nerf bat problem that plagues all other MMOs that combine PVP and PVE in the same base game and constantly screw over PVE min-maxers in the name of PVP fairness. That alone is some serious galaxy brain and I wish more games did that (cough The Division cough).

 

And the Final Fantasy community in general is far less selfish and toxic and more cooperative and pleasant to be around. Prob helps that you dont get grumpy burning out 7 days a week clearing 5 raids of 15 bosses each + hours of trash every week.  Pub PFs can be a meme at times but in the grand scheme of things it's not that bad by comparison. Always gonna be bad apples being elitist or bads looking for a 1 shot carry in any game.

 

Then again Japanese vs Western gaming culture so absolutely no surprises there.

There's not really a great place to ask this but - has ANYONE got their Rage 2 pre-order bonus from Best Buy? Like... the whole point of the damn bonus is it's stuff to help early game, here it's 48 hours after release and it seems like nothing is happening from their front. I saw them post on the BB forms Tuesday saying they expected all codes to go out Wednesday but still nothing.

 

Not to mention they ALSO botched the Plagues Tale: Innocent pre-order codes and 'ran out' so I don't have that either.

Just got my Rage 2 pre-order bonus email from best Buy, a few minutes ago.

I emailed them Monday through the forum because it was never put with my order and they sent me the codes Monday night because they knew it wasnt working on their system.  There is a forum you have to email a certain person with your order number and they get back to you within 24 hrs with your codes.

 

Sorry quoted wrong person fyi

I never got my code, so I emailed them and got one within a couple hours.

Then I get a second one today out of the blue lol.

Also, I ended up returning the CE.  Figured I don't need all that extra bullshit and just got a vanilla copy.

Pre-order or otherwise, I don't know that I've ever had an order from BestBuy arrive when it's supposed to. It's usually 1-2 business days late.

Still better than GameStop's "2 day shipping" that arrives after a week and a half.

Last time I bought from GameStop the game came with a crushed generic case in a cardboard/glue shipping sandwich, which still cost $5 of course. That was several years ago, and since then the only GS purchases I've made have been in-store (where I could verify condition and not have to worry about shipping cost).

 

A bit of a tangent here, but I personally I care less about getting things by a specific date and more about knowing what date things are supposed to come. The delivery services (USPS/UPS/FedEx/Amazon) in my area are all bad, and fixing their misdeliveries and lost packages has taken more of my time than I care to recall. If I don't know when to expect packages to begin with, that just compounds the issue. Guaranteed five day shipping would be better than "maybe 2 day" shipping.

Probably because I'm elite plus, but I always get my pre-orders on release. They will over night them if they have too. Happened with Rage 2.

I'm Elite Plus as well. I still have GCU and my wife and I bought a few appliances from BestBuy that have kept us in the qualifying spending range.

 

On more than one occasion they've "overnighted" something at like 9 PM from a few states away (which is too late for the carrier to reasonably deliver it in time). Support has been Play-Asia levels of atrocious for me, too on the few occasions I've bothered contacting them.

Maybe there is a error in the shipping diagnostics to your address? Usually they ship ups ground 2 business days before launch. Never before. So they know how long it takes UPS to get to me.

For me bestbuy is the best shipping. I cant remeber last time something wasent ship to me when I was supposed to get it. Hell I have had employees drive from a store near by and drop stuff off we have ordered.

I don't even think it's that, their system just legitimately seems to forget to ship my stuff sometimes. This is an order I placed earlier in the week that was supposed to be delivered tomorrow, still listed as "preparing" and it's past 10 PM my time:

Sometime Bestbuy system won't update on the consumer end, happened to me a few times when stuff not shipping out despite delivery expect to be tomorrow. The status then magically update to "Delivered" the next day. Hit up with Bestbuy CS to see how things looking from their end.

Sometimes when things aren't moving its because they are trying to pick items from other stores to ship out.

At this rate I suppose so. I'll post back in five years when it gets delivered.

I got a "delayed" email this morning and the order now has no delivery date.  :roll: I'm not surprised, just disappointed (again).

Which is fine, I get that logistics are challenging. However, I do wish their dates reflected that or was at least transparent enough to provide a range rather than assert a specific day. If it's going to take them  a week to deliver, I'd rather them just tell me that than string me along by missing dates and delaying the order.

The sad thing is, my backlog is so massive it pretty much doesn't matter if new stuff gets delivered on time. I barely play online multiplayer stuff anymore (maybe I'll pick that back up as my kids get older) and for single player, there's no need to play it immediately.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is showing a free metal case offer now with purchase at Best Buy (Switch version only currently):

 

https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6346504

 

Sigh...I guess my KIckstarter copy still comes with exclusive slip cover for nearly double the price.  Remind me to think long and hard about doing Kickstarters in the future.

Oh ya, Kickstarter is scammy as shit, never doing that again. We were suppose to have our exclusive "Physical Collector's Editions" of Indivisible the beginning of 2018. Still nothing and they're now releasing standard editions physically at Amazon & everywhere else. They implied that by backing them the "physical CE" was essentially the only way to get a physical copy. Bunch of crooks.

At least it wasn't like Mighty No. 9. Put your money to fund them? We'll reward you with no upgrade path to the better versions other people get before you.
