The lights are on
Fire Emblem fans have it tough. The series took its sweet time coming stateside, and even as Japan receives new entries in the series, we can never be certain which will arrive here. So it's understandable why fans would be upset by the Fire Emblem: Awakening's delay, reported yesterday. Nintendo has supplied an official comment, assuring gamers that the game is on the way and is available digitally.
"Nintendo makes every effort to make sure its games and systems are available at retail stores nationwide on launch day," said a representative via e-mail. "Sometimes, because of the variables of shipping, different retailers receive their shipments on different days. Fire Emblem: Awakening can be purchased right now from the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS."
If you're wondering why folks are so impatient to play the game, read Kim's glowing review and you'll understand.

Good thing Dead Space comes tomorrow...my order comes next week anyway, since I had the longest shipping time.
Target has it in stock picked it up earlier today
It's ok with me as I don't have the money to get it right away!!!
Called Gamestop, they said Friday. It better be here by then.
Going to cancel my pre order from Gamestop once a store search reveled that every Best Buy around me has this in stock.
Well, since I was too late on preordering it, I can't really complain about not having it now. Buying it digitally is compelling, but I really want a physical copy. Hopefully I'll have it sooner rather than later.
My Gamestop will have it tomorrow they said! I can't wait to own the Fire Emblem 3DS!
I really want to play this, but I have little time to devote to yet another game. I guess this doesn't really effect me that much, since I will be buying this at a much later time.
as long as I can play it im fine
Its some bs i have to say exp.when stores have it and won't sell it because they don't believe the release date of 2/4. Working at a gamestop myself we got a email stating we would see the game no later that 2/8.
At least it's online.
