Pre-Order Heavy Rain Recently? Good luck with your bonus

   0


For those that pre-ordered Heavy Rain prior to about two Thursdays ago, you may have just failed GameStop's altered reality pre-order QTE.

I was kindly informed a few minutes ago by a pretty savvy GameStop employee here in Annapolis. My situation is, at least, that since I did not pre-order before the 11th (Some unknown cut off date for reporting pre-orders...) my pre-order was not counted in the total for their pre-order bonus code tally. As a result, for example, of the roughly 20 pre-orders at this GameStop, the 10 that pre-ordered before the 11th are theoretically S-O-L with regards to getting that first chapter of Heavy Rain Chronicles so prominently advertised for their pre-order incentive.

I do in fact have my game, though. Sources report (ie that one GameStop guy again) that its particularly difficult right now to find a copy, even at Best Buy.

Sucks to be me, but whatcha gonna do, right?

Well, write a blog about it, obviously.

Anyone else had a similar experience? is it just my local GameStop management or is this dickery on the corporate level. What do you know, D-Toid?

Players can elect to summon "cartoony" versions of bats, bombs, guns, and flamethrowers. These types of items can be used to destroy objects or even other summoned items (e.g., a club can be used to hit an animal; steak can be attached to a baby to attract lions; rockets can be lobbed at a man).

"Right after getting back to Japan, [Miyamoto] suddenly said: "You know we're including golf now." Apparently he'd stated in an interview that this time round golf shots would be determined by the backswing, even though at that time a golf game didn't exist in any shape or form!"
