Back then, they would always submit shipping information to Canada Post on Friday (day of release) and if I'm lucky, process the package the same day. Otherwise, it would be processed and shipped on Monday or Tuesday, and delivered either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

I'm sure they use their couriers for pre-orders now, but considering many of my packages are still being delivered via Canada Post, I don't want to try again -- especially if it's something I've been anticipating for a long time.

I’m confused. I cleared the Mario cup stage. Is that all that’s required?

Depends on who they ship with. If it's Canada Post, they don't deliver on weekends. If it's "shipped" but not processed on Thursday, then they process it Friday. So likely delivery is the next week.

Well this sucks, was hoping to play Mario tomorrow. I spoke with amazon customer service and they said prime shipping wasn't available for this pre-order even though I'm pretty damn sure I clicked it when I pre-ordered it two weeks ago.

I've tried for years to get them to only ship Canada post, yet they keep using the shit that is known as intelcom Express. I don't even remember the last time they shipped me a package that wasn't intelcom delivery. Positive is that I've gotten 5 out of 8 orders free, since they either deliver to the wrong building or won't bring it up to my condo.

Canada post has delivered many times on Saturdays, Christ back in May they even brought Atleast 40 packages to my building on a Sunday, left them outside but they brought them.

OR just wait for the galaxy standalone release on the switch down the line at a fraction of the price...
Wow, so many Nintendo haters trying to tell other people what games they should enjoy.

No, you need the game to get the pins. You require 4/5 of the missions with one of them being the game.

Nah, I play on every system. I just find it annoying when people try to throw shade about what people should and shouldn't like.

You automatically assuming someone is a fanboy because they enjoy something you don't shows more about your character than anything...

Everyone here has been around long enough to know there are many ways to enjoy these classics. The point is they have the money to spend and they’ll chose how they want to spend it.

Why is it your business how people spend their money?
- Don't support hoarding. Do your research, decide on the price you want to pay for it. Don't ever pay more than that.

You aren't pushing restraint, you are pushing piracy...

I believe they found reference to it on the cartridge but that could also be nothing. But if the N64 emulator works for other games then I'm sure it'll be released in some fashion.
