Dear diary, I got another erection today at work. SO embarrassing, but kinda hot. The CO asked me to fix up his dress uniform. I had stayed late at work to move his badges 1/8" to the left and pointed it out this morning. 1SG spanked me while the CO watched, once they caught it. Tomorrow I get to start all over again...

So mines been shipped from amazon for 24 hours with no shipping information posted. Im not at home so I canít play it immediately but drat Amazon come on. Iíve never had a problem with preorders until this.

I've spent literally like $600 on video games this month (including the Switch itself obviously) so I think Mario needs to wait for another month.

I bought the Mario Odyssey edition switch and it just arrived. Unfortunately the eshop doesn't seem to want to accept my Mario Odyssey digital code. I'm hoping this changes by midnight but I'm disappointed to find out that I can't even pre-download the game until then.

the game isn't out yet my dude, release date is the 27th not the 26th

it should unlock in roughly 4 hours

E: waaait i'm dumb you can't even preload? call nintendo maybe

The message I get is "the content isn't available" so I'm just guessing it's a problem with the bundled digital code that doesn't apply to copies bought on the eshop.

Oh yeah, that guy is totally straight. I saw a whole thing about him on the VH1.

alright my dudes I've bought and preloaded Ur Mr Odd. My adult rear end ain't got time to wait in line at a brick & mortar this midnight, or risk having it be sold out after work tomorrow, so digital it is.

is this going to unlock at 9 PM in the west coast?

So I went to go buy the digital version of Odyssey and I find out that my Switch can't connect to my Wi-Fi anymore. The Switch doesn't detect anything, which is odd because every other device in the house does, including my PS4 which is right next to the Switch. I then tried to just manually enter the information (which is the same information used for the PS4), left IP and DNS settings to "Automatic," and still no luck. Anyone else experience an issue like this?

Turn it off. All the way off, not sleep. Then turn it back on again.

ah bummer, I've never bought a game with a code before launch but yeah maybe those don't go live until the game itself is up

my recommendation is that you pass the next few hours with picross s or golf story

I called NOA to see if they could do anything about preloading with a download code and they said no, they can't, but the code unlocks the game at 9pm pacific.

I don't know about any of that cause I don't read the rest of Games but between the launch, splatoon 2, and this there has been a ton of bitching about Amazon being poo poo while ..everyone else is fine as far as I recall. Figure people should have a heads up

I'm still not worried yet, now if I wake up without a notice then I'll be. If mine isn't here on time tomorrow, that will be the last video game related purchase I make with them.

Yeah those posts are always a bit lame, waiting a few extra days is not a big deal for most of us. Id be more hyped if it was a hardware release and not just yet another of the many Big Titles we've gotten this year

If you absolutely must have it as soon as it is physically possible then please do yourself and this thread a favor and pick it up in person. It's not like games sell out or anything like that, and courier services consistently miss targeted delivery dates.

Like seriously that's part and parcel (heh) of online shopping!

It's not about having it as soon as possible obviously, or we would get it on the eshop. It's about saving 20%, but then them missing "guaranteed release delivery" on the biggest titles of the year when they could have just shipped it a day earlier or prioritize online pre-orders over treasure trucks.

Yeah I agree that they shouldn't miss that deadline but they do. Consistently. Then we get to hear about it from angry goons.

That's why I like the idea of a disclaimer in the OP
