Fire Emblem Awakening may be the most insanely undershipped game I've ever seen

#1TerotrousPosted 2/22/2013 10:49:36 AM(edited)
Seriously, it's been weeks now and this game just does not exist anywhere in Canada. No online retailers have the game and none of them seem to think they'll ever be getting more, and most of the stores have never even seen a copy of the game, much less having one available. Anyone who does have a copy is reselling it for at least 3 times its value.


How many copies of this game did they even print? 5000? Whatever it was, it was at least 10 times too little.


And no, there is no way I've ever giving Nintendo one cent for a digital download so don't bother suggesting that. The fact that they may have deliberately created this shortage to drive digital sales only further ensures they will never see my money.

I'm in the same boat. I went to Gamestop last weekend to ask for a copy (before knowing how undershipped the game was) and they literally started laughing. I don't want to download either (I have enough to purchase it from store credit, so I'd rather use that). It feels like I'll never see what lies beyond the first two chapters presented in the demo. ={

There are delays here as well in Singapore. I wonder what's happening.

Uhh, it has a 9.3 gf ratings average, that's one of the highest of any game on the entire site. Pretty much everyone says the game is amazing.

notice how noone replied to him. I wouldnt say the story is bad but just decent. Overall the game is awesome and I was super duper lucky to have gotten a copy. I feel really bad that some people aren't able to get it anywhere and if it were me I wouldn't get the dd for the same reason.

And anyway, I would have preordered this game, but Amazon.ca chose not to stock it. That should have been the first red flag, but they have a history of randomly not stocking certain games (often Nintendo ones) so I didn't pay it much attention. There was no indication the game would be this ludicrously hard to find.

It's not everyone, it's just a small group of loud vocal die-hard fans. The kinds of people who would rate it 10/10 before even playing it. Unless you fall into this category, you'll probably be underwhelmed by this generic RPG. And if you ARE in that category, just go shell out the $100 required for a new copy on Amazon like a true fan.
