Oh, you guys, the patch is up on the eShop. You may want to download it if you're going retail.

Join the club, looks like they've chosen to screw Cornwall over again amongst other regions. :heh:

 

Yes it sucks but I don't begrudge others the chance to play the game early - well not much anyway ;) - and 'game locking' would certainly not be welcome.

 

Nobody would genuinely want that, this is Nintendo we're talking about not Microsoft. :indeed:

 

I'm just going to find other things to do and I'll assume this is payback in my case for when I received the original Super Mario Galaxy in the post a whole two days early from Play.com... gosh those were the days! :D

 

----------------------------------------

 

Anyway how is the game for those that are playing it? I'd genuinely like to know but obviously no spoilers. :)

 

 

 

Sorry I meant for downloads locking but then I realised they do that now :(

 

Game used to send the codes out early and you could download instantly, looks like they have indeed sorted that now the bastards.

Yeah a mate of mine at work has Prime and he always gets stuff from Amazon. Like you he doesn't get anything early (rarely) but he saves some dollar.

 

I've always liked GAME for their reward points as I find them pretty good value when you buy a lot with them. They've just let themselves down a bit with delivery and order debacles. I've seen it both personally, and from you lot on here. Some of the stuff they try and get away with is baffling.

 

ShopTo will always be my go to, but recently I've found myself ordering from all over the place purely to get special editions, better prices etc. Thats why I was baffled when I ordered Smash and got a mail to say I was now a Silver ShopTo customer. :o

 

And this is how they treat me?!! Haha I kid. Kinda.

Ah in that case I completely understand, Game deserve all the abuse they get as penance for price-fixing alone and the rest of it! : peace:

 

*sigh* Well at least I'll get to play this tomorrow I guess, hopefully. :)

I didn't get it from ShopTo either. Strange considering I got the shipping notice and picture of the packaging on Tuesday, which clearly says it's been sent by 24 hour Royal Mail. Mustn't have actually been sent until today.

 

Slightly disappointed, but as long as it's here tomorrow I'll be alright.

24 Hour Royal Mail is no different to 1st Class. It's just what it's called on the Online Business Account (I hate it, as it makes it look like we send stuff late when it takes more than a day).

No idea if mine is at home, but it does seem strange that Shopto would sent a dispatch email to people Tuesday night and not send it out. Usually, they send the dispatch once it's been dispatched.

 

Still, only 3 hours until i find out.

That's strange in that case. First Class is always advertised as 1-2 business days, even if it usually does arrive in one. But for 24 hour delivery to take more than 24 hours??? Unsure whether it really is down to Royal Mail or Shopto really were holding back on dispatch.

It's not on their site yet, but internet ads for Shopto are showing the Wii U version + Gamecube controller as £52.85. Wonder if it will be cheaper anywhere else? Amazon tend to price match ShopTo these days.

 

I also noticed quite a few of the amiibo are now £10 on Amazon.

Super #SmashBros. for Nintendo 3DS - Launch Trailer

 

 

There now, isn't that better? Nothing beats being teased like that.

 

Don't let the postage delay get you down, boy. Post gets delayed all the time, just like that. Why, you could wake up dead tomorrow! Well, goodbye! ;)

As Cube says it's the same thing, so it'll be an issue with dispatch. I only recently started noticing this 24hr and 48hr delivery things, but I for some reason concluded they must just be 1st/2nd equivalent. Noticed it on a lot of things I've ordered in last few months that were 'first class' where the postage says 24hr delivery(not the same as next day, ofc).

 

Anyway, whilst you're all crying about not having the game early, I'm currently not caring as I've yet to get a 3DS interest in it(or my L button fixed) so I'll just rock on over to my currently more exciting purchase in the Fantasy Life thread! ;)

You do realise that, to me, you all sound like spoiled brats.

 

"Oh WAH! I didn't get my game a day before everyone else! The thought of having to wait just one more day is unbearable!"

 

Suck it up, because it could be a lot worse.

Take me for example, because it's a Mario Kart League night, I'm at @Dcubed's house, he and his sister have the game. So I'm gonna have to distract myself while she plays the game.

 

Now that's torment!

 

Not for me, since I'm not at home anyway :p

 

Course I could've just taken it with me to spare you the torture, but where's the fun in that? ;)

As I said, I haven't ordered it myself but I can see why those who did and didn't receive are getting a bit upset. Most people go with Shopto because of the early delivery. It's essentially what put them on the map. When you don't get it early from them then you feel let down.

 

If your situation bothers you that much you could avoid your own torment by simply not going to Dcubed's house. Simples.

 

I rely on DCubed for internet access so I can take part in the Mario Kart League. Don't really have a choice.

Thought I saw some pigs fly today. An early deliver from the Nintendo Store.

It should prompt you to download when you start the software.

Game is great. The lag is pretty unworkable at times though.
