So, my Taiko order didn't turn up yesterday, despite me pre-ordering it like six weeks ago :x

Did anyone else buy from Amazon? Just whinged at them on the chat (I messaged them about it yesterday and the guy was like "oh it'll definitely be here today"), and they've extended my Prime by 30 days. Didn't explain why it was delayed, though. Would rather have an explanation rather than just an apology. Still, should turn up today. Probably while I'm out at the fireworks :fp:

I think most of the time something like this happens there is no satisfactory explanation, or they don't know. The package got temporarily misplaced (fell out of sight behind a desk at the delivery center, only to be discovered the following day/week), or forgotten or something. It sucks, but usually it's just an incompetent or uncaring employee (or even a good one making a rare mistake).

Not that its going to help you, but I cancelled my Amazon order last week and went with The Game Collection because they had a 7.5% off offer at the time and the game turned up on Thursday.

Don't get it without the drum. My friend says the touch controls are probably the best way to play. We haven't tried the drum yet, but the motion controls are gooseberry fool.

I was looking at the digital price.

Cheapest physical online seems to be £39.85 which is still £10 too expensive.


If you are still looking for it, apparently there might be a £5 Ebay voucher (HIGH5) you can use to get the game from Shopto's Ebay store for £34.85. Not sure if the voucher is account specific or how long its on for...

Yes, it says mine is due to show up today (I don’t have prime). Amazon never deliver day of release for me.

Yeah, whenever I order gaming stuff from Amazon it usually arrives the day after release.

Last time I pre-ordered a game with Amazon (BotW on Switch) it turned up a day late, will never use them again for launch day games

Could anyone tell me, without giving anything else away, exactly how many Kingdoms and Moons there are total in Mario Odyssey? I started Mario first as it's the way to start playing a new Nintendo console, obviously, but I also got Zelda with the Switch and want to know how far through SMO I am, in case it's worth starting BOTW soon.

I got to what appeared to be the last level of Mario and quit right there. That gooseberry fool was long and hard ( :datass: )

Know what's annoying? I want the Mega Man Amiibo from Smash. Well, not too long ago it was easily available for £10, now I can't find it anywhere for under £50.

£20 (pre-owned) at CEX if that helps?

Or set up a stock alert/look at the twitter amiibo things to let you know when the official ones come back in stock. I'm assuming more will be released before Smash hits.

Playing Splatoon and I'm toying with getting the online for the Switch. Nearing the end of the single player stuff, and I feel like I'm missing out on half the game.

Is the Octoling expansion any good?

If you're not playing online, you're missing out on a lot more than half the game. The base single player in Splatoon is an okay distraction for 5-6 hours but the core game is online.

Having said that, the Octo Expansion is very, very good. Better than the main campaign, so if you enjoy that, definitely get Octo too.
