Completed SNES Classic pre-order on Target.
Hang in there, you can do this, patience is rewarded.

Target appears to be trickling these systems out throughout the day. Queue up the item page, Sign up for an account and log into it. Each time they release units, you'll only get through part of the checkout process, it appears to save your progress, like I failed once coming out of PP, and didn't need to even go to PP on the next release. Hang in there, the next time they release units, you can get done with another step in the checkout process. It took me 4x cycles like this to complete the process and come back from PP with a confirmation number.

Expect that gutted feeling at least once and plug your computer into that modem with a wire.

Best of luck Boys and Girls.

this is painful. twice, I've had it and lost it through the check out process.
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

To call this presale poorly executed would be an understatement. Nintendo knows how to get the buzz, even if it's frustration buzz.

Sweet merciful crap... after losing it during checkout once, I managed to score one from Target on my phone :shock:

So, thanks for the tip to keep trying!

Nice! Got one last night and played super sneaky. So much fun. 8 kills total!
8 is a good effort!
Im at 3 wins now. Had a few seconds and thirds too. It's hard to get the win sometimes when there is less than 10 left. All about the positioning in the circle.

Lol. Didn't they say somewhere that they wouldn't do any more preorders after they were gone the other day? I could be imagining that.

anyone else on Destiny 2?

I'm enjoying it even though it is exactly the same as the 1st. Have done both nightfalls with 5 mins left and most other challenges, but last night me and 5 mates tried the Raid. drymount me, it is tough. We were on for about 3 hours, maybe a little more, and couldn't get past part 3 of 8. We are all sitting around light level 280 too.
Most of that time was figuring out how to actually move forward, but even then once we figured it out we still couldn't do it. Pretty tough.

Anyone pick up Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS? I haven't cracked it open yet, but I'm looking forward to a new Metroid game even if it's a rehash.

Anyone getting excited for SW Battlefront 2? Game does not release for about 2 more months but beta drops in like 2-3 weeks.
