Play-Asia's exclusive Cursed Castilla Ex for Vita is up! Just placed my order! :D
I think it's only available for those that joined the priority pre-order so if you signed up check your e-mail for the link!
(FYI, you need to be signed in for the 'Add to Cart' button to appear)

You can use the code 'GEMATSU' to save $3 on your order. :)

#13865851 Limited Run Games Thread - Future Unfolding [PS4] 4/20, Mercenary Kings [Swit...

Posted by Gameboy415 on 01 November 2017 - 10:59 PM

It took 5 minutes to actually go live!

Seriously, what happened this morning!? :wall:

I had to be in a meeting at work at 11AM today so I was going to quickly place my order at my desk and run over to the meeting room as it usually only takes a minute or two to checkout.
I log in to my LRG account (& PayPal) and start refreshing the Absolver page at 10:58.
11AM rolls around, the counter hits zero, and I continue refreshing the page for 2 minutes straight - nothing.
I quickly pull up the LRG Twitter on my phone to see if the release was delayed again - nothing.
I quickly check a few forums for any updates - nothing.
I keep refreshing until 11:05 when a co-worker comes by and 'reminds' me about the meeting so I give up and head to the meeting, assuming the game will be pushed to 5PM EST like Shadow Warrior 2 was last month.

I get back to my desk after the meeting to find out the game went up at 11:06 and promptly sold out - what?!

I've purchased every LRG & Special Reserve Games PS4 release thus far so I'm really upset that I missed this one because it randomly went up late.

Obviously there are things out of your control but please remember that many of us have to try to buy your games while we're at work so it's incredibly frustrating when listings don't go live at your announced/scheduled times. :(

I'll still gladly support you guys going forward but I'd suggest putting up a small 2nd batch at a later scheduled time if you run into technical difficulties like this again in the future.
It would give everyone who was ready to buy the game(s) at your scheduled time a fair chance.

#12870889 Target Ad 8/16-8/22

Posted by Gameboy415 on 17 August 2015 - 11:20 PM

So can anyone confirm that its 25% off all xbox one and ps4 games?

It seemed to be the case based on the signage at my store.

I picked up Resident Evil Revelations 2 for PS4 and Rare Replay for XB1, both of which were $29.99, and pre-ordered Super Mario Maker for Wii U. The 25% only came off one game but the cashier manually adjusted the other one down for me (to $21!). :)
Plus I used the 10% off Cartwheel coupon, got 5% off with my Red Card, and used a $5 gift card to get both games for $36.11 total! :D

Posted by Gameboy415 on 31 May 2015 - 10:50 PM

I haven't noticed too much discussion about it in the thread thus far so here's a recap of the amiibo news from today's Japanese Nintendo Direct:

Fire Emblem: If for 3DS will support Marth, Ike, Robin, & Lucina amiibo - tap the figure to battle that character in the new 'My Castle' mode.


Guru Guru Chibi Robo for 3DS, a new 2D platform-action game, will release this fall in Japan alongside a Chibi Robo amiibo (YES!!) that can be leveled up in-game and unlocks 'Super Chibi Robo' in the main game.


Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for 3DS will have both retail & digital versions (4,000円), as well as a bundle that includes the amiibo adapter for legacy 3DS handhelds(5,000円).
The Animal Crossing amiibo cards will be sold in random 3-packs for 300円 (about $1/card). There will also be a special New 3DS LL with the game pre-installed & 1 amiibo card, plus a faceplate for New 3DS.


The amiibo 3DS adapter will also be available separately for 2500円 in Japan:


They also re-confirmed that Yoshi's Wooly World will support several different amiibo and allow you to unlock patterns based on the amiibo you scan, as seen in this Nintendo UK video:

#12639212 Lego Dimensions up for pre-order at Amazon & Best Buy (release 9/27)

I'm still waiting for confirmation that this game is going to include LEGO Simpsons characters/stages.
If so, I'm definitely picking it up! :D

I call BS! I saw the first and second post on here at 11:20... First two posts were at 11:17 and 11:18... I didnt even see a pre order option 3 minutes after!

It was definitely up for a bit!
I got a Now-In-Stock alert, opened the link in IE (never seems to work in Firefox for some reason), clicked on the grey order button, confirmed it added one to my cart (which I removed b/c I already secured mine in during this morning's batch), and immediately posted here (& on NeoGAF) to try to help you guys out.
Sorry you missed out! :(

If anyone's bored waiting for the next batch of pre-orders to go live, you can check out my new pages for all currently-announced amiibo figures and plush, including placeholder pages for Mewtwo & Lucas in my 'Future amiibo' section, on amiibros.com. :)
If you hover your mouse over the boxed image on an individual amiibo figure's page, you can see a close-up of the loose figure/plush - including the Splatoon & Yoshi's Wooly World series!

I've also updated the amiibo games page with Mario Kart 8's new compatibility info and some (limited) info about amiibo TAP & Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.

They're not currently active, but I have all currently available US pre-order links for Wave 4 & Splatoon on each individual amiibo figure's page.

All of the Amazon links for Wave 4 & Splatoon (and Jigglypuff from Target) are also on the main page for easy access. :D

Here's hoping the Amazon links go live soon and we can all get the amiibo we want! :pray:

Gah, this is Rosalina all over again!
I can't seem to add Jigglypuff to my cart online or on the mobile site. :(

FYI, I've compiled all of the currently available pre-order links on the front page of amiibros.com in case they get lost in the thread. :)
