    Wait, gold box art not sent to you? Isn't it, you know... kinda PART of the case of the game and such? Are they sending you two copies? XP

    Yeah, I think I'll just do that from now on. The postal service around here isn't the best.

    Two boxes.
    One empty box for pre-order special, and normal box with game.
    I posted a pic in the discussion thread [​IMG].
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    See my thread about E-shop cards for general bitching about GAME!
    My local one is offering pre-orders on Mario 3DS, Mario Kart 3DS and Luigis Mansion 2- I asked when they were to be released and they said they didn't know! I distrust them intensely- should have waited and just gone out and bought it

    You should totally get to Master Quest as fast as possible when you get the game to make fun of them. [​IMG]

    Ah. I see. They were both sealed, I didn't think they would send an empty box, but that's really cool they give you both. I feel cheated -- I really like the EUR boxart lol.

    Yes, both boxes are sealed.
    In the pre-order special box, you get a poster inside [​IMG].

    Has anyone else who received the gold box art removed the sleeve?

    On the inside (where the rupees are printed) there's a picture of link with navi in the corner, which you cannot see normally as the case plastic is in the way.

    (I was switching covers between the two OoT cases as the gold one had a bloody sticker on it [​IMG])

    So they're saying you'll get your full order before you can beat the game twice?
    That doesn't exactly inspire confidence. [​IMG]

    Looks like they're trying to use humor to deaden the impact of disappointing customer service as well.

    I actually emailed them about this and they admitted that sending the promotional material separately was down to a packaging error. Here's the email:

    Code:
    Hi Paul,
    
    Thank you for your email.
    
    Unfortunately there was a slight packaging error with your game. Please be assured that this is not our usual standard. We are currently looking to send out these promotional bonuses separately. Please be assured that we making every effort to resolve this issue swiftly and all affected customers will receive an email shortly with a resolution.
    
    Once again we apologise for any disappointment caused.
    
    Regards,
    
    Charlotte H

    The only person I know who pre-ordered in store at GAME was told he would have to go back monday for the promotional materials as they weren't in yet. I was shown them two weeks ago by a staff member. WHAT IS GOING ON THERE?!

    I think it's fair to say there is a large disparity between individual GAME shops around Britain. If only they hired employees exclusively from gbatemp.

    Yeah I got the same email as well. Luckily, I managed to get a pre-order bonus from my local GAME store so it seems that I'm going to have two pre-order bonuses.

    Seems my lucks not that all great since I couldn't register properly for the soundtrack and now the option for it is gone [​IMG]

    Be thankful you have the game. I preordered from GAME, all paid, dispatched on the 14th and it still hasn't arrived and apparently im not the only one.

    It's a shambles. That's the last time I buy anything from GAME.

    I've already complained and called up and done everything I possibly can to let those cock heads know that once I receive my game and preorder goodies, they can fuck themselves.

    I vow NEVER to preorder from those arseholes again.
