Finally got an update on my Wizard's Edition.  UPS says it should come in by the end of the day on Monday.

So let's recap; I pay nearly 110 dollars for a special edition that comes in six days after release.  Yeah...

Womp womp.

If it makes any difference I got the game a WEEK early...but will all my fucking homework, you'll probably beat it months before I'll have a chance to.

If it makes any of you feel better, I'm pretty sure I'm either catching the flu, or a virus of some sort, and am miserable now. I was feeling shitty tuesday and slightly less shitty yesterday, but today I feel like a train hit me. Say what you will, gaming while sick is never fun :(

I preordered this with a Gamestop gift card I got for Christmas and got it on my birthday today. Hope it doesn't let me down.

When you first enter the actual town of Ding Dong Dell, make sure you speak to the little girl at the tree to your left when you enter.

Well, they stockpiled when there was no hard limit on how many you could get, so they undoubtedly also caused 200+ more to be produced. It can be frustrating they get to hog that many while people either had the poor luck of getting orders canned or simply didn't have a good opportunity to order, but if they didn't make that order very little about this situation would've likely changed.

Love how people on that forum are immediately screaming 'conspiracy' on the basis that Minnesota (where Digital River is located) is close to Canada...

That's some ironclad evidence right there.

Except there was no actually limit on the number you could order (not at first, anyway, they added one later on) and the plan was that they would be made to order so it's not like a big order was preventing anyone else from getting one.  More orders would just mean more were made.  Obviously Digital River screwed up and that didn't happen, but I still don't see how that's PlayCanada's fault.  They haven't done anything wrong.

it's absolutely not PlayCanada's fault, it's Digital River completely.  I'm not sure who is blaming PlayCanada? I guess people who are angry that they're not getting their item?

I just think it's a shame that the supplier is cancelling the orders of legitimate buyers while a business goes and sells the same item for three times the price.  That's capitalism for you, I suppose.  It's not "wrong," it's just dirty.

I don't think anyone can say that a scalper getting all their orders when individual customer orders are getting canceled left and right is in any way fair.
