Did I miss something?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I went out with my friend today to the mall, since he just got his license, so why not go out? So I wanted to go to GameStop to go preorder Pokemon SoulSilver, since the original Silver is still one of my favorite games of all time, and I was only recently passed up for my 3rd most played game of all time. So I went to get it at GS to get the little figure that came with the game, and it only just hit me now that I didn't get it. Was I supposed to get the preorder bonus when I preordered or when I pick up? Yes, I know, I'm 16 and I went to get a Pokemon game, but you know what? A good RPG is a good RPG, and that game kicked so much @$$ 10 years ago.

Usually it's when you go pick up the game on release day.

I've heard that you should have gotten one when you pre ordered . Although, I am pretty sure that you can go back to the store, they will look you up and see that you have indeed pre ordered, and they will give you a figurine if they still have the supplies. Good luck!

this is from gamestop.com

Reserve Pokémon SoulSilver and receive a "Lugia" collectible figurine. Available online and in-store while supplies last.
Online Customers: Pokémon collectible figurine will ship with your game.
In-Store Pickup / Store Customers: Pokémon collectible figurine will be available at time of game purchase.

*I'm not sure if that "purchase" is when you pay the pre-order or upon receiving the actual game

Oh, and there's nothing wrong with liking Pokemon games at 16. I admit that I am older than that and I am still a sucker for said games.

Well, I didn't pay it off in full, so maybe that's why. My dad paid off Brutal Legend in full when we preordered it two days before it dropped, and I got the code for the DLC. I'll just make sure to ask when I go pick it up, or next time I'm in the mall. I guess if it ships with the game, it would make sense they get them when they get the shipments of the game?

On the games and age subject, some of the old Nintendo games that looks childish are actually superb, like the Advance Wars series. I don't know of any "acceptable aged" DS owner that would be able to beat that. And the more classic RPG from the old consoles (of which I never got the chance to play). Nintendo - confusing little kids with overly difficult games and torturing adults who can't play them since 1985.

Ha ha it's so true! I guess it would make sense, especially if you paid in part, that you wouldn't get it until you pick it up.

That reminds me when Diamond and Pearl came out. Many of my friends at work loved red and blue and had played it as kids. At my weekend job (movie theater) a bunch of us all bought Diamond and Pearl and battled for a few months. It was fun kinda reliving a childhood memory. We would play on our breaks and even the ushers would play between cleaning movies. Our managers weren't too impressed so we later had to keep it more secret, haha.

The point is, we were all 18-21 at the time of when we bought it. Sadly none of us have really touched it since.
