And by "this", I mean retail supply. How the hell does a game that is this anticipated, perhaps surprisingly so, get its shipment fucked up so bad? Several people who pre-ordered it from Amazon are getting their shipments delayed and a vast number of Canadian retailers also got shafted. Because of this, I wasted $6 taking the bus to the store and back as well as 2 hours of my life.
So I was sitting in front of an EB Games for 40 minutes, waiting excitedly for it to open, only to be disappointed when the clerk told another guy who was waiting for Catherine, sitting in front of the store for an hour, that he has no idea when they'll receive the game because the supplier fucked up. I went to a Best Buy and they didn't have it either. I went to a GameStop and encountered two people who also wanted to buy Catherine but were told by the clerk that they didn't get it because the publisher's unreliable and they apparently didn't even set a street date. So now Atlus is essentially saying "Sell it when you get it!" and people who pre-ordered the game, a couple of months ago, might not even get their damn copy. This shortage or problem or whatever is also apparently happening in Canada because they didn't manage to think about making enough bilingual documentation before the game was supposed to ship. How did this happen?
Did anyone else expect to get the game today, only to be Catherine-less?
Edit: I WANTED THIS FUCKING GAME SO BAD, WHY DID THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN.
