    Any amazon order-ers not have theirs shipped yet? I know Amazon waits till last minute for release day guarantee, but I still would like to know when I should get nervous!

    I'm not going to get antsy until Thursday night. The last game I preordered with them was Final Fantasy. I got the shipping notice 5:46pm the night before, still arrived on release day.

    GameStop gave me a 'your preorder will be available' note, so that's a relief I guess

    And now my Amazon order has official shipped, on its way to UPS. Now it just needs to make the trip from New Jersey to Minnesota. Sadly, this kills the dream of an early delivery, but at least it should be on time.

    Some of mine are shipping today some not (Switch, and Zelda, eek!) but I hope it's just because it's shipping from a really close distribution center

    Hm. So apparently like most mobile devices, the battery in the switch is used to power the system even when docked, and then the battery is charged when available. Seems like that could cause pretty bad battery life problems long term even if you're just playing it docked.

    Also it seems that playing zelda you can't charge above 85% battery which seems kinda crazy given the wall wart is a 37W charger and the highest draw off the plug engadget could get playing Zelda was 16W.

    How about different shipping runs of the same game? Each one could have it's own unique flavor, like a fine wine!

    Earthbound: In Your Dreams Edition will be one of two flavors: pizza or vomit. You don't know which it will be 'till you try!

    A game's taste should be inversely proportional to its expected Metacritic score.

    @mojojoeo mine came by email - "Get Your Switch On! Pick Up Your Nintendo Switch Friday", announcing 12:01 AM pickup and my store's address. It arrived in my box on the hour, 2 hours ago

    At the bottom it mentions that the email arrived because I am enrolled in the powerup rewards program click here to unsubscribe

    Anyone have a link for a back-up charging cable+USB plug? Figure I should have a secondary option just in case. Probably should look into a micro SD card as well.

    And Ultra SF2 can fuck itself until it's down to $20.

    I've been thinking about pre-ordering from Amazon just for that 20% off thing they do because I am just totally unwilling to drop the full $50 on it.

    So when I preordered my switch with Gamestop I checked one-day shipping. "Day one" shipping wasn't an option available to me at the time. Does anyone who deals with them regularly know if that makes a difference?

  • urahonkyurahonky Registered User regular
    I would think that Day One shipping means it'll be there Friday, whereas One Day shipping is Saturday or Monday.
