I've got the game preordered, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm glad to hear it's a long game, too, as my only concern was that it would be too short. Early February is going to be amazing - Fable Anniversary, Bravely Default, and Danganronpa all within one week
Thanks for the feedback. The problem seems to be when Amazon transfers the items to my local post office, as it takes two days for items to get from UPS to USPS to me, even after they arrive at my local post office. However, the tracking page says that the sender requested that this happen, so I still blame Amazon. It's ultimately their responsibility to get me my package on time, and that includes not using shipping methods that won't allow that to happen.
I always hear about people having issues with Amazon, but I've never had a single issue with them in all the years I've done business with them. They're pretty amazing in my opinion. In fact, I ordered something right before Christmas and it came a day earlier than I thought it would. I'm also a Prime member.
I'd been singing their praises up to this point, too, and it's just this past few weeks when the service has gone rapidly downhill. I can understand this happening around Christmas time, but it was after Christmas that the problem really started. I'm hoping this is just a bump in the road, but I have a bad feeling that it's not.
I've been having a lot of problems with late shipments from Amazon lately. I've been a Prime member for a while now, and all but a few items I've ordered have arrived on time. Even this Christmas, I got all but one item on time. However, things have fallen apart since then. Of the last five items I've ordered, four have been late. Has anyone else experienced this or have suggestions on how I should ask Amazon to compensate me for this terrible service?

I started up to the demo, went out into the world and into a dungeon, and was promptly one-hit killed by the first monster. Guess I will have to read a little closer about where I'm supposed to go
Even at level 2 with all my money spent on equipment, I still barely survived my first battle in the first dungeon. I'm thinking you're either supposed to level up in the wilderness first, or I'm not using the battle system correctly. I'm loving the demo, though. The game is absolutely beautiful, and the gameplay looks very deep.
It looks like Barnes & Noble is having a year-end sale on some of the year's biggest books. Dan Brown's Inferno was $1.99 yesterday, while Stephen King's Doctor Sleep is on sale today (12/26) for $1.99.
The January US PS+ games might have been leaked. There was a video available on PSN for a short time showing them off. If this is real, it's quite a lineup - Don't Starve for PS4, Bioshock Infinite, DMC, and Brothers : A Tale of Two Sons for PS3, and Smart As... and Worms : Battle Islands for Vita.
I really wish more classics RPGs were available on Virtual Console. I'd love to see the Lufia games, Soul Blazer, and especially Terranigma. Terranigma was released only in Europe, so there's a fully translated version. All they have to do is put it up on VC, but they won't
I've already played through Peggle and Nights on PC, but I couldn't pass up both for $2. They also have a new set of year-end and weekly deals with some really good prices. Highlights include the JRPG Eternal Sonata for $3.74 and SSX for $4.99.
Sony has released a free-to-play endless runner set in the R&C universe - Ratchet & Clank : Before The Nexus, a prequel to Into The Nexus. The game is fun and it makes good use of the R&C elements, but the control isn't as tight as it should be. The free-to-play stuff isn't bad, thankfully, and it shouldn't be too hard to earn everything just through playing the game. You can also earn raritanium in the game that can be transferred to Into The Nexus on PS3.

Also, I'm concerned about replayability. I mean, DW has always had dozens of characters with different combos and styles.
There could be other playable characters than just Link - Zelda, Ganon, and even some of the enemies. They could also have different versions of the main characters (Toon Link, etc) with different looks and abilities.
I don't really understand what they're doing with the Vita release. They said all along that X and X-2 would be separate games, and although they technically are, you can't buy them individually. Also, the physical version has a cartridge (or whatever the little Vita things are called ) for X and a digital download code for X-2, which makes even less sense. You'll also need lots of memory card space, as each game is ~3.5 GB.
Too many to mention, but my most anticipated are - Bravely Default Diablo III : Reaper of Souls Divinity : Original Sin Dragon Age : Inquisition Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Persona 5 (I'm hoping for a quick localization or simultaneous release) Pillars of Eternity Starbound Tales of Xillia 2 The Legend of Heroes : Trails In The Sky 2 The Witcher 3 X
February - April is going to be packed with RPG releases - Fable Anniversary - 2/4 Bravely Default - 2/7 Lightning Returns : FFXIII - 2/11 One Piece : Romance Dawn - 2/11 South Park : The Stick of Truth - 3/4 Atelier Escha & Logy - 3/11 Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD - 3/18 The Witch & The Hundred Knight - 3/18 Conception 2 - 4/8 Demon Gaze - 4/22
Namco Bandai has also confirmed that the game will see a worldwide release. It's so nice to have confirmation of a US release when a game gets announced, rather than getting jerked around for months or years.
