    So aside from our awesome health care system, our superior everything (trololo, not the health care thing though), EB Games in Canada is selling Fire Emblem Awakening early.

    For those of you that don't know, it was supposed to come out on February 4th. As long as the store has it in stock, they can sell it early.

    This was news a couple days ago, but apparently they've received a request to enforce the street date again. Shame, too, because GameStop in the US was going to do the same when their shipments came in.

    I'm still pretty sure it was just a ploy to drum up a bit more hype for a game that's already sold out/backordered everywhere.

    It's not like you couldn't get a copy earlier if you strike a nice chord. I remember years and years ago I used to break street dates all the time with my local Blockbuster.

    Canada: Come for the early copies of Fire Emblem, stay for the free healthcare.

    That's one hell of a rude Awakening.

    strangely on gamefaqs, this is the most anticipated game of February. Is it because of the awakening or rather re-awakening?

    I'm so 50/50 about this game... I love Fire Emblem, but not sure if I am willing to do more of the same yet again... or if it's different enough... only time will tell :3
