This is so dumb.  There should be a wait list option.  You put your order in, you go on a wait list, then they fulfill your order as stock is received.  It's a hell of a lot better than playing these games every day.

 

They sort of did that a little bit last year with the Microsoft store, and people were able to put in orders in November that would ship in late December. It sounds like a good idea, but the problem is people were getting pissy about having even a month wait, and they also didn't understand how their orders direct from Microsoft were going to take so long when retail stores (that had already paid for their inventory) were having consoles available sooner than Microsoft. It ends up being a clusterfuck and a bad idea because so many people are fucking stupid.

Once you use the cards, you can let someone else scan the card or whatever right? Do you have to keep tapping each time you wanna access the content or you set it and forget it? Thanks

Yes, you can lend the cards to friends to unlock the content. And once you've scanned a card, the items it unlocks (furniture, wallpaper, flooring, clothing) stay unlocked within the shopping menu in the game. To scan all six cards in one day to unlock all the items, you use the Nook machine to scan an amiibo, but then tell the machine you don't want to invite them to the campsite and you can then scan the rest.

 

And if you want to use the card to invite the associated villager to your island, you have to invite them on three separate days, and each day craft for them the item they ask for. On the third day, they will agree to move to your island and will replace a villager of your choosing if you are already at max capacity. But you only need to scan once to get the items.

According to the CAG Twitter, the Sanrio cards will be available starting 10am CT/9am ET on Friday 3/26 for pick up only, and limited to 2 per person.

Just wanted to point out the time listed in this post is wrong for anyone wanting to get these. They go up at 8AM CT/9AM ET.

I'm kind of shocked everyone is loving the Snyder cut so much in here. There's things in it I like, but overall I thought it was trash.

 

Some of the good stuff is Cyborg and the Flash getting more story, and the fact that there's not a scene where Batman fights a Parademon that self destructs and in doing so leaves markings on a wall that look like the Mother Boxes. That shit in the theatrical was fucking dumb as hell.

 

But the good stuff doesn't make up for the fact that there's scenes that drag on too long (the women singing after Aquaman returns to the ocean, for example), the music choices throughout were awful, and there's so many scenes with unnecessary slow motion. Does Lois Lane walking in the rain after buying coffee have to be in slow fucking motion? And Zach Snyder is bad at teasing future plot elements. Why does Batman have dreams of the future in Batman V Superman AND Justice League? Marvel is so much better at hinting at what's to come without literally just having a character randomly dream about the future. Since when did Batman have powers of precognition?

 

Also, none of that stuff is going to get a pay off unless WB lets Snyder make a Justice League 2, which I doubt they will. I think a version of Justice League could be made in a fan edit that takes the theatrical and adds some of the Zach Snyder stuff to make it a decent 2 1/2 to 3 hours, but there's no way I would sit through this 4 hour monstrosity ever again. It was an awful experience. Do not recommend.

They make medication to take care of that.
