Didn't Best Buy give you a $50 gift card for that? How is this better? Seems about on par.

You must have me confused with someone else; my problem with Best Buy was that they smashed the box up because they didn't ship it properly. They basically told me to deal with it, since they didn't see the "carton" (their words) as an important part of the item, limited edition or not.

I'm curious where exactly you complained as their CS over phone / chat is terrible. In store?

I used the online chat (waited forever for that one, but they seemed nice enough and said they'd pass along my complaint) and used a link someone posted that allowed me to give feedback for a store without actually needing to go in and buy something. I'm not sure which one of those worked, if either, or if the employee in the store told the manager about my predicament. I'm assuming it's one of the former since he seemed so eager to help out.

Edit: it was slowdive who posted it for me: https://gamestopcomm...m/?languageId=1

I don't think anyone will be horribly interested, but I posted a few days ago about the Gamestop I preordered from selling my Ike to someone else; I guess my complaining to corporate/leaving a bad survey worked, because the manager called me not even a day later and offered me a $25 gift card for the problem. I'm still stuck waiting for another few months (which isn't great, obviously), but it was a very nice gesture.

Now if I just had anything I wanted to buy from Gamestop. I don't think I'll be using ship to store any more (or visiting that location ever again - sorry, awesome manager). Still, it's much better than what Best Buy did for me when they screwed up my MM 3DS.

Good luck to everyone trying to get the gold Mario, I'm not interested and won't try to give myself a heart attack trying to get it - I'm saving that for wave four.

Do I detect a hint of elitism? ;)

It's silly, right? I'm not sure why someone would be upset that Fire Emblem was getting more fans. It's my favorite Nintendo series and has been since I first discovered it back in '04, and I'm always glad to think that there's more people out there playing and enjoying it. That, and likes someone already pointed out, they're helping with sales and keeping it going. Everyone wins.
