    I'm getting it from Amazon, so there will be a wait until I have it myself.

    The best part is that it has remote play and my gamepad works in my bedroom, one floor up (and right above) where my WiiU is, so I can play Mario Kart in bed.

    guys, don't forget to add your NNID so we can set up a sherdog tournament. Maybe we can get a special icon in our username if we're the cup holder, who knows.

    Do we still get Wind Waker HD for free (or one of the other offered games) with the purchase of Mario Kart? I'm assuming the offer is in the game case itself? What if you buy MK digitally?

    So bummed. Pre-ordered from Amazon and saw it shipped from an amazon shipping station yesterday but wasn't due until the 4th but the tracking code wasn't working yet. I live near Seattle where there is a shipping station so figured it was just a place holder date until the tracking activated. Checked this morning and see it's shipping from Maryland! WTF, you literally couldn't find a shipping station farther away. Was looking forward to diving into some kart action this weekend.

    Oh well, just re-subbed to Gamefly and have Deus Ex and Resident Evil at home so that will more than keep me busy.

    I almost ordered from Amazon but at the bottom of the Mario Kart page there's a thread/discussion that was started saying Nintendo games never get delivered on the same day they're released from Amazon. He/she suggested buying it retail if you want it day one so I held back. I'm gonna grab it in a couple of hours. Taking a half day at work.

    Edit - It was actually in the Q&A section...

    Other people are saying it's not an issue anymore though.

    That's the sad part, I would have had today had it shipped from the Seattle station. No idea why it got shipped out from the opposite coast when shipping was already free from prime.

    Yeah that's pretty stupid. I've been noticing lately that you really have to check if your order is being sold directly from Amazon or being fulfilled by Amazon. I mean most of the time when you click add to cart you just assume that it's being sold by Amazon but that hasn't been the case lately. A lot of times your first buying option when you click an item is being sold by someone else but fulfilled by Amazon but you can't tell the difference. It used to be that when something was being sold by another party you would have to click on See All Buying Options. Not anymore.

    But I would think that something like the Mario Kart would be shipped directly from Amazon. Someone in their logistics department needs to wake up.

    Yeah, that deal is still a thing, and you'll get it if you buy digitally as well. WWHD, NSMBU, Pikmin 3, or Wii Party U. I'm deciding between WWHD and Pikmin 3.

    Perfect. I never played WW so I'm definitely getting that. My damn hard drive is already full . I had to buy a flash drive just to be able to download WW.

    picking WW too,
    Pikmin sounds like a 30$ pick-up.

    Do you do most of your purchasing digitally? I'm a dinosaur - I need the discs and cases.

    I feel like it should get cheaper, but it is still $60, and Nintendo is notoriously reticent to lower prices on its first-party titles.
