    Holy shit i'm rustled at Amazon. was told my Switch was coming today. Got an update saying they tried when i was standing in my hall looking at an empty driveway and i never answered this invisible man, rang support who said they would try again, got another fake delivery failure notice again as i was looking at an empty street outside my house, rang support again and they scoffed and hung up. Then sent an email saying my switch might show up now next friday a week later.

    Cancelled my orders with them and prime, holy shit what trash service. I've had better luck with Zavvi!

    Now time to see if the local stores have any of the latest batch left -_-

    Amazon's pretty shit when buying newly released things. You have prime or pick fastest shipping and it still comes a week late.

    Sounds like AMZL_US carrier. Amazon Logistics is their own carrier that functions like Uber/lyft. Of course no responsibility like an actual carrier.

    I figured as much but...

    https://www.gamespot.com/articles/de...source=twitter

    Destiny 2 was officially revealed yesterday, and developer Bungie talked a lot about what's new and improved. The question was inevitably raised, though, about the possibility of the game coming to Switch. Unfortunately for Switch fans, Bungie isn't planning on bringing the game to Nintendo's new console any time soon.

    Talking with IGN, project lead Mark Noseworthy stated that the developer isn't working on a port and doesn't think that the game would work on Switch. "I think it's pretty unrealistic, given we're an online-only game, right?" he said. "[The Switch is] incredible, I love the console, but in terms of where it's at, I don't want to leave anyone with the possibility of, like, 'It's a thing we'll consider, maybe next year.' There's no plans right now for Switch."

    Bungie is bringing Destiny 2 to a new platform, however. The first Destiny was only on consoles, but Destiny 2 will have a fully featured PC version, replete with graphics options such as unlocked frame rates and a variety of resolutions. GameSpot talked a lot about the PC version with Noseworthy, which you can read here.

    We also spoke with Noseworthy about Guided Games and the new weapons system, as well as how Bungie is catering to new players while also improving the experience for veterans.

    Destiny 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 8, and PC at a currently unknown date. Bungie will hold a beta for the game this summer for consoles and later for PC.

    That must be why then.

    Here in the US, I have yet to have an issue with Amazon. I've always gotten stuff on release day and they will leave it for me at the door if I'm not home. Amazon is actually the most reliable service like this that I've ever used.

    Because it's a fun party game to play with non gamers. It's a laugh after drinking.

    Amazon will get orders right 80%+ of the time(bullshit number but insert any high number you want it doesn't matter) but they're not perfect and in fact have been fucking up more often with shipments from video games in particular. Nioh, Zelda, Nier, MK8D and Persona 5 all had pretty wide spread issues with amazon fulfilling prime release date delivery just from this year.

    Meanwhile Best Buy usually fucks up so bad that you get your game the day BEFORE it comes out, has 20% off all games not just a 2 week window and in general has been far superior as of recent.

    Probably not an option for people outside of NA, but if you're in NA Best Buy is pretty much the best online retailer for games atm.

    I hope no one expected a game that only runs 30fps on the pro to run on the Switch at all.

    Idk, I've always enjoyed that Nintendo were a bit different from the Sony / Microsoft boys. I've always found it to be a refreshing experience. They just need to get better at releasing games that the masses want (Mario Sunshine, Luigi's Mansion, OLD Mario Party, Metroid, etd etc).

    I am hoping they have some cool stuff to show off at the E3 Nintendo Direct, I'll fucking lose my shit if they spend time on Splatoon 2 as that game is right around the corner anyway so there's literally no reason why they should do so.

    I hope no one expected a competitive online game to run at 30 and 60 fps on the same console environment.

    Masses wanted all those games so bad that the Gamecube was a smash hit...

    Oh wait...

    Let's not confuse what Nintendo fans want for what "the masses" want.

    Wasn't Dark Moon one of the best selling 3DS games?

    GF has dark moon and loves it.

    She isn't as big of a gamer as me but I personally think its a good game as well.

    Different strokes I guess.

    dark moon while fun was a step down from the original luigis mansion, the fact that there were what? 6 ghosts total each with different colors or glowing parts was a real let down. The original had the residents ghosts you had to capture a long with the generic, it was a lot more fleshed out.
