Why did you choose GameStop over Walmart, Target, Amazon, or Best Buy?

I'm asking because my pain-in-the-ass retailer rankings go like this (from most painful to least painful):

GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, Walmart.


Id pick GS because of the $5 monthly reward and large amount of trade credit from flips

Preordered from Best Buy - hope they add the $10 reward but either way this is a ton of value for $60 - never played sunshine!

I really feel they should have thrown in Galaxy 2 - that's another masterpiece.

Sunshine is easily one of the worst Mario games. It wasn't good.

That's clearly coming in a later package. No way Nintendo is not planning to brong that out eventually.

Mario is Missing and Mario's Time Machine exists. Sunshine is no where near that bad. Even then, the worst Mario platformer is the level nearly every other platforming game hopes to achieve so it's still not anywhere close to being legit bad.

I don't think that's it. The physical is limited from the start, digital will be till March 2021. 

Right- why would they stop selling it digitally? I don't get that... these are their games, you'd think they'd want to sell them until the end of time.

I just preordered from Amazon and got $15 off for using Chase Reward points for part of the purchase total.  You have to click some button first for the offer to actually activate.  It's worth looking into if you have a Chase Freedom card.

 

Here is the link for the offer if you don't see it.

Preordered from GameStop. I’ll use my $5 monthly reward with the 10% military discount at pickup.

The $5 monthly cert, and the fact I had some trade credit. 

 

I was on the GCU train for the last 7 years, so now im looking for other places to start preordering my games.

 

I hate stepping into a Walmart (though maybe Ill try shipping...), best buy is dead to me now, Target is MSRP, so I went with Gamestop cause at least I got a little $$ off.

I had no idea the 10% discount worked on new items. Thanks

3d world separate game.
Galaxy 2 will be a separate game also.

More money, that’s the decision

This should be $40. Nintendo's "remasters" and ports are mostly lazy upscales.

Just redeemed my points for cash back minutes before reading this. I hate everything.

 

(Thanks for the heads up, though.)

So $13.3/game vs. $20/game

Target has Super Mario 3D World up for preorder. Hell of a good deal too! I might buy several of them to flip!

Edit: It's fixed now, but was showing as $9,999.99 before, hence my joke post.

the price of a product is whatever people pay for it, so im not here to argue price, just here to say that most peoples 40$ comparisons are largely due to collections like the crash bandicoot trilogy

That may not be a popular opinion, but I have to agree. Very uneven and some levels — I’m looking at you, pachinko level — are almost impossible due to poor camera angles. I seem to recall hearing they had to rush the game to meet a deadline?

That Delfino Plaza music though...that tune will stick in your head for days...

As these are exactly the same games with NOTHING new, not even cleaner graphics, I'm pretty sure 99% of all you have already played them before back then when the games mattered.

And yet those same people act like they never played them before

Lol

For me, I rate games like Sunshine based on how many times I may have replayed it, as that will tell me how much I was in to said title. Sunshine I finished only once, and had ZERO interest in playing it again, so yeah, far from my favorite Mario title, but I did at least finish it. Most Mario titles for me are nice fun romps that I revisit here and there due to the fun factor of said titles(or trying for 100%), and Sunshine just wasn't that fun for me. 

 

It did very much have a "rushed" feel, but I don't know if that is true or not, but it is for sure a title that didn't meet Miyamoto's mantra of a "A bad game delayed.......", if in fact true?

The graphics are actually much cleaner compared to the originals, at least in M64 case, but that's only for people who haven't played it anyplace else since the N64 days. I run it pretty regular on different devices an it looks gorgeous thanks to the benefits of modern emulation, so this bundle was DOA for me without some major upgrades. And I knew when this was first rumored, that wasn't going to happen, as "N" can offer this bare bones and still sell tons, so why put in the work? It is what it is, sadly.

Crap, i didn't see that, i got $10 off by using discover cash back points. so still a deal.  I'll have to link my freedom to amazon now i guess.

Just so I don't miss out, SM3D World + Bowser's Fury is NOT being advertised as limited right? That's just a standard release? 

 

And I'm wondering how limited SM3DAS is since it's still available for PO everywhere. Usually limited Nintendo games sell out in minutes.

Those offers are hit or miss, if you see one, you likely don't qualify for the other. There's also an offer for CapitalOne cards floating around.

Just having these games all in progressive scan and upscaled with sunshine and galaxy in widescreen is a pretty nice upgrade.  My only question right now is, if playing on a Docked Switch with the GC adapter, will Sunshine use the analog triggers of the GC controllers to control the water pressure?  or am I remembering wrong how that game played?
