    I know this game probably isn't the highest-profile title out there, but there are a few of us who have been really looking forward to it. I was very disappointed to read the news that the U.S. version had been delayed. However...

    GoNintendo reports that they personally were able to purchase their copy yesterday: http://gonintendo.com/?p=60758

    So, perhaps we'll see it dumped sooner than we thought. [​IMG]

    That's...strange. I wonder what's with the conflicting reports? But at least someone being able to purchase a copy (provided they're not lying bastards) is a pretty good sign of one of those being true. =P

    Well, perhaps the publisher shipped it and requested that stores hold off on actually selling it until a specified date. Of course, EB and Gamestop employees have been known to flub stuff like that up.

    Ah yes, often to the benefit of all of us. Hooray for street-date-breakers!

    That doesn't make sense to me. Sure other big-name games are going to be out too, but it's not like Away is going to be on sale for just one week. I know about the whole "sell on release or fall into obscurity" thing but gamers nowadays actually track when games are being released. I mean honestly, you go into the store most of the times with the intent of buying a specific game. If you're going to rely on impulse buys, then you're already doomed to failure.

    Hmm...I wouldn't underestimate the power of the impulse buy; Walmart was founded on it.

    But my best guess is, if there was an official delay, it probably had more to do with trying to get the game out there closer to the big shopping days here in the U.S. than competing with other games. `Cause either way, it's going to be competing plenty. This might be the biggest year in game releases yet, and that's just insane, considering last year.

    That's really good news if it turns out to be true. I really want to try this one out in English. Looks like a lot of fun.

    It is a bit strange to be delayed right at/around the shipping date,somebody screwed up somewhere......

    Since it's upon us now I gave it a try it's alittle weird dungeon wise but seems not bad so far.....

    Ok this may seem silly but how the heck do you unequip weapons/armour without buying new stuff and equiping it?
