So I have some time without my Son this weekend and I thought, "what perfect time to play Skyward Sword" with it coming out.
I don't own a Wii Motion Plus. Never saw a need for it and never got around to getting Resort so, I definitely want The EPIC BUNDLE. You know the one with the Gold Wiimote+ and Anniversary Soundtrack.
To make sure I would be guaranteed The EPIC BUNDLE
I pre-ordered it on Amazon the day it was listed as Pre-orderable. About the end of October I was verifying everything was OK with the order and looking at it I noticed something disturbing. Zelda wouldn't be here till the 25th of November! I mean I like things on my Birthday but, that was after Thanksgiving which would Not Do. Off to change my Shipping. Standard
... Still after Thanksgiving2-Day
... Before Christmas but what do you mean 2 day isn't Tuesday.1-Day
... Tuesday and just 2 more dollars then 2-Day (If your going in Full Hog anyways...)
Disappointed Amazon could not get the game to me at launch, I had made my decision. I had informed the Misses. Time passed. I got Older. I got Wiser. I got Worried.
You know people will probably start to talk on Sunday. The social element of any on release game purchase for me is very important. Thats why I hunted Portal 2 down like a Wild Boar. I plan started to form in my head... Queue Plan Music
Step 1 *slap board, click boots*: Check Amazon on the day of the 20th to see if my order could be cancelled.
Step 2 *slap board, click boots*: Go to Walmart at Midnight and obtain bundle.
Step 3 *slap board, click boots*: Maybe eat a Sandwich or Something.
The Plan was made and all Parties were informed. I had even got a companion for the deed. Though being 3 he really didn't know what he was signing up for. Now where is a ridiculously oversized scarf or a Bow Tie, I hear there cool.
The Day of Reckoning has Arrived. Fate had Dined to leave me Childless for this oncoming Day.
After a Hard Day of Podcast Chat Participation, Do'n It for the Kids folks, where we shattered through the goal like the line at the end of a foot race, I took a bit of a nap . Well I slept past Midnight. It was time to figure this Out.
Amazon: Request for Cancellation is still viable
Keys: Keys... where are those oh there they are. Check
Wait, its not Midnight so everyone that is open 24 hours a day may already be out. No problem. *Heroic Voice*It's Time to Use TECHNOLOGY!*end Heroic Voice*
Alright here we go to Walmart.com let me put in The EPIC BUNDLE.
Oh, Hey look I could get a Cinch Bag with a Nintendo Select Title.
Wait, The EPIC BUNDLE
isn't listed on the site. Thats odd. Well I'll just give them a call.
"Thank you for calling Walmart."
Ring x 4
Female Wally World (FWW): Welcome to Walmart
I (Ceric):HELlo, I'm calling to see if you have any copies of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in Stock. In Specific the one with the Gold Wiimote bundled in, (aka The EPIC BUNDLE
FWW: Let me check.
about 6 minutes later
FWW: I'm Sorry we don't have any.
Ceric: Thank you for your time. You have a good night.
Thwarted but, not beaten. Come on Internet what else is open 24 hours Daddy Needs a New Game. Lets see maybe Target. What do you mean its online exclusive bah. It was then I knew I wasn't getting this game at Midnight and I may have to go to the Devil to get it earlier then Tuesday.
Alright Gamestop.com, Lets Dance. Sunglasses.... No, No, Put those mats away.
Much better. The EPIC BUNDLE
. Processing...The Results are in:
In Stock*? Wait there is a Star there. What does this mysterious Star means. What Secrets does it hold? Oh well it doesn't say anything on the site. Talk about bad Footnote usage... lets see if the Interweb knows. Hmmm, it seems to be Just bad English though I know its more Nefarious. An opening for LawNinjas
With my Bubble Popped I came here to provide a thread of Rainbows and Unicrons.
I know somewhere out there is a gamer getting Skyward Sword. That Gamer is not me. So Tomorrow...Wait Today is another day and Will I over come this challenge. Will I just start to play the Waiting Game again? (Probably) Though I think I'm just going to go to sleep and Remiss that OSX doesn't have MS Paint...
On a Serious note does anyone have a Story they like to Share of Hunting Skyward Sword?Now I have a compulsion to try to note that I used a Lance and Armor with Attack(L) and Heat Resistance
