For everyone that didn't know, Future Shop/Best Buy here in Canada offered a promotion during E3 where you could preorder multiples of 3 new releases and get them all for 33% off. Obviously, I took advantage of such a great deal but perhaps went kind of overboard. Not in terms of money but getting ahead of myself in terms of what i'd actually be able to play.
I had originally ordered the following sets of 3:
The Last of Us, GTA5, Pokemon Y
Super Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD, Donkey Kong Country
Assassins Creed 4 (Wii U), Watch Dogs (Wii U), Mario Kart 8
Pikmin 3, X, Professor Layton & the Azran Legacies
Mario & Luigi, A Link Between Worlds, Bravely Default
As of last night, I have cancelled the last two.
Order 4 was originally meant for Pikmin 3. I was gonna cancel the order once I got my Pikmin 3 for $40. Right now, i'm currently playing through Pikmin 2 (Wii) and the P3 release has kinda crept up on me. Needless to say, i'm not ready for more Pikmin next week. :P
Mario & Luigi was cancelled because it's too long. Yeah, that's right. I just got SMT4 yesterday and between that and my current backlog, adding the longest M&L game ever next month would not have helped things. As for Zelda 3DS, I don't feel like doing back-to-back Zelda games. I've also never played top-down Zelda before so i'm not sure how I would like it. It seems that 3DS games go on sale quite often compared to typical Nintendo first party games in the past so I might just get them later.
Between SMT4, Ace Attorney 5 and Pokemon Y, I should be good with 3DS games. It's the Wii U I want to be supporting this holiday! :D
The one thing I regret not ordering is Wonderful 101. That games appeal and awesomeness didn't hit me till after E3. An order of SMT4, W101, Bravely Default would've been awesome. :P I was kinda thinking of getting SMT4 during E3 but was intimidated by the difficulty. Too bad we didn't know about the $30 Club Nintendo promo back then!
