I'm one of the geeks who pre-ordered the new Super Smash Bros. This is my first time pre-ordering and I'm just curious how it works. Do they ship it out on the day it's released or a few days prior? I was checking the status futureshop.ca and I'm not able to cancel it anymore so I'm hoping that means it's been shipped. That would be great if it arrives early next week because I have a week off school and this is one of those games that will totally consume the first few days when I get it.

You get it the day it's out, though they obviously ship them to the stores before that.

They can't ship it before the release date. So you'll have to wait until it arrives.

BTW, I pre-ordered it too I hope it's has awesome as it looks
#6
Well the release date is a Sunday so it's not arriving then but whatever, if I could stand the several times they delayed it I can wait a few days.
#7
If you ordered it from a store like gamestop or bestbuy they will call you and let you know when your game is at the store and how much time you have to pick up the game.
#8
I pre-ordered mine back in August. And EB games has them on the day of release. They do at mine anyway.

One of my friends is having a party to play it Sunday. I'll probably check it out. I only played Melee once and thought it was slow and horrible compared to the original.

Melee had too many characters that were just clones of others either made faster and weaker or vice verse.

This small video game store in my town started selling them yesterday, so my friends and I picked up a copy today. They also sold out of COD4 before it was supposed to be released.

They also have Secret of Mana for SNES still in the plastic wrap...for $400.

well i could see small stores doing that but never at a place like gamestop(i work there) the district manager and manager of store maybe even alot or all of the staff would be replaced.

Don't let the word out. I'd hate to see a store closed down for breaking an unjust law. People in Japan got to buy it over a month ago and North America getting it a few days early shouldn't be something wrong. I feel bad for the people in Europe who have to wait longer.

I preordered Half Life 2, and all of the Halo games. I'll probably preorder Episode 3, just because I feel like getting excited over a game again.

It was too centered on "power" moves and the execution of any given move was too slow.

I pre-ordered mine a few months before the original release date of November. I'ma be standing in line tommorow from 9:00 AM to 12:00 AM in front of Gamestop, I'll be bringing my DS, laptop, Little Debbie Snack Cakes, Shasta Soda, and plenty of stuff for D&D. No, this isn't sarcasm, I'm a huge nerd.

I went and visited the Wii line, I wanted to join but they were out of spots and I had a marching comp that day. But in my Best Buy line a friend said there was a penis swastika drawing contest, a dude named "Big11111" was the winner. He never came forward to admit who he was.

+984237193875983 for getting brawl the day it comes out. my friend and i are going to eb games tomorrow night for the brawl tourny, and we get brawl at midnight . all eb games in the US, as far as i know, are holding tournies. it's a one minute match, and the finalists go on to another round, then another round, then another round which is in california. the winner gets some fancy hdtv, a wii and brawl (of course), $5,000, and a complete nintendo library. too bad i suck. i think i'm going to do ness or falco. maybe try my hand at lucas .
