What the F..ork?

 |  WTF

I pre-ordered the new Harvest Moon for Nindento DS (at the same time as the new Harvest Moon for the GameCube) months and months ago. I got an e-mail last week telling me that the DS part of the order was delayed. I have just logged in to find out the details and spotted the new delivery date: “Delivery estimate: 5 Mar 2007 – 7 Mar 2007“!

What the hell kind of bloody delay is that?! Nintendo, you disappoint me. :( Amazon best ship the GameCube game despite the other half of the order being delayed…

(Note: those waiting on me for script modifications, fixes, etc.. I’ve not forgotten. I still have very flaky Internet so I’m doing what I can when I can …and fighting an overflowing inbox in the process.)

    That is horrible! My friend pre-ordered it too. I don’t think she has it yet, but it may be something else. I’ll have to ask her. @Carina: Loved your comment on swimchick.net

    I’ve heard a lot of complaints about Amazon taking longer than necessary to send out shipments. I’ve never personally used it before, but just from what I’ve read throughout the internet… unless they’re the ONLY place that has it, I’ll stray. Actually, wait, I remember ordering a XD flash drive from there last year, and I think it was sent in a timely matter. Or was it from the fujifilm website..? hmm…

    Well, last time that happened to me, I made them give me my $ for delivery back. I had ordered a new laptop. I paid for 2 day delivery. It came in 3 days, lol. I complained enough to get my money back. Can I be annoying? Yes. But I’m damn good at it.

    Amazon always overestimates how long it takes to send to me, but they’re usually only about a week or two off. March seems excessive…I think you can set/change it to ship as the items become available instead of all at once.

    Harvest Moon DS looks great, I’m tempted to buy a DS for it. I don’t know when HMDS will be out in Australia, it’s already been out for some time in the States. -__- I’m very curious about HM Rune Factory though. Farming AND battles? AND OMG I CAN’T WAIT TILL THE HARVEST MOON ONLINE GAME IS FINISHED (or started). Sucks about the delivery dates! Though could it be not so much that it’s Amazon’s slow delivery but that HMDS isn’t going to be released in your area for a while to come?

    Could Nintendo have decided that it’s not going to release the game for the DS but that it will come out for the Wii, or have a release date for the two systems at the time?

    I’ve preordered Burning Crusade, the expansion pack for WoW. Hopefully I’ll get it when it’s *supposed* to. It’s the first game I’ve ever preordered..

    Little miss swimchick made you a video. It’s hilariously immature of her. As if she weren’t pathetic enough. That’s crappy about the game. I’d be so pissed if that happened to me.

Aw, well, I’m honoured that she should take the time to do this for *me* – I feel special. :D Of course, as I cannot view YouTube videos at work and I have no Internet at home she wasted her time :'(

    Jay ordered an Xbox 360 from Amazon. His expected delivery date is 2 weeks from now… except, it was shipped almost a month ago. Oh the xbox. How I wish I could burn it. It truly is, “The Man Stealer.”
