Got back from Gamestop a little while ago and was able to do a web instore preorder for Metroid Dread SE.

So happy, the only other 2D game that could top this for me would be a new 2D Castlevania, just like the ones back on the DS.

Not all heroes wear capes my dude. After reading your post, I went to the store and was able to order the special edition in store for home delivery. Thanks for the heads up!

Regarding: The Medium Special Edition

No mentioning of availability for NA according to the initial tweet. When someone asked about US, their reply was: "Online shopping is an option".

Edit: according to a post on hidefninja, a Polish retailer listed the Special Edition for about €35, not too bad if import.

Apparently they have to look it up by a different number for home delivery and not just the normal search. I was told the same about it being sold out at  a closer  gamestop. YMMV on whether they know this number or whether they will do it for you...some may be hooking up friends, gatekeeping, etc....

Those sold out at 6pm central yesterday, I was on my way to a GS in a different district 30 minutes south of the one I normally go to place an order, but the manager messaged me on the way down after work they had just sold out. She had placed an order for one 2 hours earlier.

New York here, in-store pickup is apparently regional.  I went to my Gamestop today at opening and spoke with the manager.  She said only the standard edition is available for pre-order, and that thet Special Edition isn't available yet and wasn't available yet.  She noted that this is regional as I said earlier so likely this was for all of New York as well, and that they won't have that option until they get their allotment numbers.

YMMV...I ordered in store around 7pm CST.

I know the Netflix series is somewhat controversial among older Castlevania fans, but I really enjoyed it. Would be amazing to see an updated 2D Castlevania game that utilizes that style of animation for the cutscenes. Will probably never happen, but I could see that mix being pretty awesome.

I got it! Had to take a ferry from Manhattan to NJ, but I got it.

 

Initially, the guy said it sold out from the time I called to when I arrived. But apparently reserving it in store under a non-account remedied the problem. fwiw.

 

so stoked ... I bought a WiiU back when they said the system was getting it. Been waiting for a new Metroid forever. Prime is best in series. Wavebird a must. Such an amazing soundtrack, too. (Phendira drifts anyone? And that intro!). Even more stoked for the 3D version .... just hoping that isn't a new hardware release.

I wonder why it's conterversial? That show is amazing!

Yep, YMMV.  I ordered mine at 6:00pm PT.  It took me calls to three stores before I found an employee who either knew how to do it or simply cared enough to.

Russell was the best GS employee ever. He really went the distance so I got one. I salute you, Russell.

With games I'm interested in being announced and other financial things popping up, I cancelled the Scarlet Nexus pre-order for the steelbook.  The demo was just OK.  The Tales of Arise CE was in the same order and Bando does not let you cancel one item.  I might try to order that again, but recent JRPGs just don't grab my interest like Lost Odyssey or Eternal Sonata did on the 360.

I did the exact opposite after replaying the scarlet nexus demo again, the tales of arise CE for $190 didn’t sit too well, I really just want the SB and figure and couldn’t justify the price regardless

I think the JRPG market is pretty weak. So many I've just tried and thought were meh like the Atelier series and all the XSEED and most NIS games I think are really nothing to write home about. Anything with really uninspired dungeons and environments put me off. You have the From Software which are from a Japanese developer, but I think most people just consider them "Soulsborne" games not technically JRPGs. You have Dragon Quest XI, but aside from that, honestly I think Nintendo has the best JRPGs these days. Games like Octopath Traveler, the Xenoblades, Fire Emblems, Trials of Mana, the Bravely games, etc. If you want a classic RPG experience that's your best bet. Switch/3DS have the best recent exclusives IMO.

 

I'm hoping Tales of Arise recaptures the Tales greatness. I loved that series since the beginning, but I felt after Vesperia it went down hill and I was begging them to go back to the drawing board and start over instead of churning new ones out every year and they finally did that at least. Whether or not the game will be good, who knows, but at least they put the effort in going in a new direction.

Not a new entry, but a "Castlevania Advance Collection" was just rated in Austrailia.

So we will probably get an updated collection of the 3 GBA Castlevanias here for Xmas

 That's close enough for now!  I would pick those up, haven't played them in years.  Not since my non-backlit GBA.

I got too much ocd... got all the previous Metroid amiibo in boxes, but can't get the dread amiibo... so now I don't even want to keep my old ones cause it'll bug me. 🤪

Part of me thinks you'll get another chance closer to release... a few stores are bound to have some open orders due to cancelations/non-billable cards.

Sundays will be determined by a random number generator, Bart will have 1-3, Milhouse will have 4-6, and I’ll have 7-9.

Because the ending was absolute trash, and the way they treat a certain important villain was just… dumb.
