In an interesting shenanigans twist, Gamestop's website went from listing the released date as 3/29/11 this morning to 3/31/11 when I checked it just now.
I can't tell you how disappointed I was when this happened. I was hoping my parents would be able to pick the game up for me before they picked me up from work yesterday, only to find out that they were told it wasn't going to be in until Friday or Monday. Later, I looked on their site and saw the same thing you did. I REALLY hope it's in on the -new- release date. I never had any trouble with this before... Ah well, good things come to those who wait for them, I suppose.
I played one of the Legend of Heroes games for the psp, but I honestly couldn't get into it. But, I've been reading into this game and it seems to be different (better) from what others are saying compared to previous installments. I'm going to play it, just hoping to get some insight before I start. I've been interested in the series for some time now since Falcom is behind it.
Fair enough. I think I'm mostly irked with the fact that when I went in yesterday, Gamestop told me "it would be in tomorrow."
That is how it is suppose to work for many releases - the Gamestops getting them the day after they are officially released (Or the next scheduled delivery after formal release - if the package made it through the system to be delivered the same day.). The people at your local Gamestop would assume it worked like that for any game they had not gotten before release date, barring official notice from HQ.
Yep. *Some* stores already have the game (seems like smaller mom-and-pop shops and EB Games Canada were among the first to receive it), and all the others should be getting it soon -- it's either there already, or DEFINITELY ON ITS WAY NOW.
As much as I want to have been checking out the fruits of XSEED's work since yesterday I kinda don't mind the delay while my copy arrives. I'd probably never finish all the work on my plate if I had the option of ditching it to run through the Rolent countryside.
Hmm seems its delayed at my Game Stop to, but I don't mind I'll actually have the money to pick it up, once it actually arrives.
on a side note, my sister works at Game Stop and apparently someone else, besides me, was looking for it and called about it today, she says she had like 5 min convo with this person on the awesomeness of the series. I guess they want to try Zero no Kiseki n stuff.. all I know is, I need to meet this person lol.
I'm assuming my parcel with amazon is late too. :'D I'm... not quite concerned though... that much. X'D Since one shall get one's parcel WAY after ye all. Lucky people!
Still~ X'D The sooner Trails in the Sky gets shipped out, the sooner me friend can finally send my copies of Tactics Ogre and Ys Chronicles LE too~! :'D *waiting MOST eagerly to get one's greedy hands on them aaaalll~~~*
Also~ Hearing about a map at the back of the poster is making me most happy.
E-mailed Gamestop bout their debacle and they blamed the manufacturer, hah..
