For whomever is hit by the shipping delay and hadn't pre-ordered/paid/been set on a retail copy and/or the retail bonus, the game IS out on the 3DS eShop tomorrow.

Scratch that (unless you're on the East Coast), it's out right now.

That would be me :( Called the Gamestop in Indy and they won't get it until Friday. I didn't want to play the game this week apparently.

Try target even if you are on the east coast.... I live in Northeast Pennsylvania and I just walked out of target an hour ago with my copy.... I walked over to gamestop and grabbed the artbook of a cancelled pre-order immediately after...... tis' a goooooood day!
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

I'll give them a call and see. Don't want to drive 30 minutes for nothing. Thanks for the heads up!

All the targets in the area have copies... except mine, of course.

damn..... sorry to hear that... i was just replying to your other post wishing you luck.... there is always the option of a short road trip (call first and make sure their selling it, as they are not supposed to until wed. according to my local target folk)

as for the game.... i think this may finally be what I needed to break me of my problem with handhelds... granted i've only been playing for about 2 hours but its sure has been an impressive 2 hours!

Maybe I'll try Target on the way home from work.  I went to the GameStop I had it reserved from, a Best Buy and a Walmart and none had it in stock.

Try not to blame your local Gamestop for shitty haps.  We got an email from head office told to release the game on Tuesday.... February 4th... x(

Having worked retail for almost ten years (including a 4 year stint at GS) I know what's the fault of the clerk and what's outside their control.  I'd never go after a clerk for shitty corporate policies.

Looks like the closest instock one is a good 1.5 hours away =\ .  I'm going to keep WM/Tar/BBY webpages open so I remember to check them tomorrow to see if they were any changes since Tuesday is often the release day for games.

I heard the GS artbook is very minimal.  If someone is looking for a more robust one, try this one: http://www.amazon.com/Emblem-Awakening-Kakusei-Sheets-Knights/dp/404886694X

Meanwhile, I'm screwed over til Friday given that the whole point of my GS preorder was to obtain a 3DS.

At least I still have other games to play while I wait.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

GameStop: Lol, come back Friday, game delayed.

Me: OK.  *goes to Target, buys game off shelf*

Haha I did the same thing. Went to Target and got their last copy of the game only because I had it held for me. They said there was 3 other people who called and left their number in case I didn't pick it up. They were only sent 3 copies of the game too, which is ridiculous. Oh well, I got my copy!

There are advantages to living in NYC. I was able to get the bundle at Nintendo World after work today. I've made it to Chapter 2. It's been a while since I played an FE game. I was just going at it without a care when all of a sudden Lissa died. I was kind of okay with that since I don't like her already. I'm glad to get back into an FE game though.

Her pig tails piss me off.  And her dress net that doesn't get quite covered...bleh, rot!
As much as I like Yusuke Kozaki, the way he draws faces is kinda copy+pastey. =/

Otherwise I'm happy to say my first FE experience is overwhelmingly positive!  This game is addictive!  I'm glad whether or not characters can be perma-death'd is an option, already had a character 1-hit KO'd due to a critical hit (I think someone already mentioned there isn't really a good "reset" system in place either).

You're talking about restarting a chapter when someone dies? Just quit a chapter, or bookmark it or whatever, go back to the main menu and choose Continue INSTEAD of Bookmark. You'll restart the chapter that way.
