Yeah, I got Nov. 1 - Nov. 3. I'm gonna do the same thing I did with Splatoon 2. Pick it up Friday at Toys R Us or Walmart and return the Amazon copy when it arrives so I get the preorder discount.

No tool man shall I broker him,
Let those who shout 'More Power' grim
Heed my call, I don't think so Tim


Cons:
-Bowser still primary antagonist
-Mario controls other characters' bodies without their consent
-Most problems in game are solved through violence (i.e. "Jumping" on characters heads in order to kill or incapacitate)
-Very little character diversity, almost all human characters are white and presumably cisgender
-Implied sexual peril
-No online multiplayer
-Culturally offensive to Italians
-Features "damsel in distress" trope
- Does not pass bechdel test

Makes sense. I might do the same :|

If I was 100% sure I'll be lending this out to friends at some point in the future I'd go digital. Saving $20 with prime was cool but I'm not a poor so I think from now on I'll just buy it in stores like normal people.

MIYAMOTO-SAN... YOU HAVE MY AXE


Amazon got me Mario Kart 8 on the day it released. I am not sure what's up with Odyssey.

However, I just got off chat with them, and they apologized and said they will ship it TODAY (not tomorrow like it said) and they will do 1 day shipping so I get it on release date

So anyone who preordered the game from Amazon, hit up their chat and complain. Worked for me.

The rubber on the thumbstick for the right joycon is peeling off my controller. This is the first controller since the PS2 that I've have come apart. I am pretty good about treating my electronics delicately. I did a quick google and didn't see a ton of people complaining about their joycons coming apart so I assume the issue isn't widespread. I wonder if there is a way I can fix it or if I am going to have to just buy new controllers.

through my uncle at nintendo, ive been playing it for about three hours tonight. visual design is lovely and its also a really funny game. the controls are great, hell of stuff to find, some great secrets that you feel like a hero for uncovering. honestly it feels like sm64 for 2017; a 3D platformer with everything done to perfection so it feels classic, not dated

This is what I've been wanting since Mario 64, honestly. Sunshine was fun but felt like a different direction. Galaxy 1&2 were incredible but also different kind of game. 3D World was absolutely fantastic and fun but closer to a 3D take on classic Mario. From what I've seen and from this description, Odyssey might be my perfect Mario game.

Honestly, for Nintendo 1st party games it's a safe bet that I won't let them go unless it's Spla2on.

Don't resell games. Make people who want games buy them direct or not at all. That's my hot take.
