I received my e-mail for Cloud Strife’s SOLDIER 1st Class Uniform and Buster Sword, but I guess I can't redeem the voucher, until the game is released (no big deal).

I hope I get one too. I'm a bit nervous about dealing with Digital River.

IGN Review: 7.0

Likes the combat, the world, and the customization

Dislikes the story and tone

This seems to be the unanimous word on it (except I'm going to add that I think the music is fantastic). The 'likes' are definitely enough for me to buy it, but I'm probably gonna wait for when it hits $30 or less.

Hope mine comes in tomorrow. It was sent out on Wednesday and I paid for two-day shipping. Basically, Digital River just shipped it early standard and pocketed the shipping cost. Last time I order from that horrible store. If they keep up the SE Store exclusives, I'm going to start complaining loudly and hope others join me.

The idea doesn't even make any sense. Surely the more ways you distribute your product, the more business you're going to get and thus the more money you're going to make.

Mine comes in the mail tomorrow. I'm not expecting much. I liked the first enough to buy part 2, which was meh, and this one I was hoping would be like taking the best of both, but it looks like that isn't the case. Maybe I'll be wrong (which I'm hoping), but I've dialed down my minimal expectations again.

Yeah, they kinda went in a different direction on this one. What with the lack of a party and Stagger not being 'The Thing' anymore.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

My collector's edition was at our local Fed Ex "distribution center"(They load their trucks off the plane just off the runway lol) yesterday morning. They decided not to deliver it yesterday because it was scheduled for delivery today...

This really isn't doing too hot review-wise. Gamespot gave it a 5/10, IGN 7/10

Here's my review: http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/Lightning_Returns_Final_Fantasy_XIII/index.html

Your review seems to be one of the kinder reviews haha. It's got a 68 on metacritic right now with almost 30 reviews. Hopefully I at least enjoy it some like you did.

Considering the main problems seem to be with the story, and I don't put nearly as much weight towards a game's story as I used to, I'm sure I won't have any trouble getting plenty of enjoyment out of this game.

Yeah, I expect I'll enjoy it.

On another note, SE sent out their orders fast enough, about a week ago, with the free shipping option that it's arriving today.  Why pick anything but free shipping with them?  It seems like a waste.
