Seems best buy will have many returns for this.

While mine is still sleeping with Purolator ----->
I grabbed one from SDM and made use of the 20X points.

$80 for 3 emulated games. Nintendo doesn't deserve a cent of your money for this

Want to know the same thing for Mississauga :)

I called 2 nearby that carry games (Eglinton/Hurontario and Burnhamthorpe/Cawthra) and both had none.
Will try again tomorrow, but if anyone can suggest another location...

Just picked up a copy at Burnhamthorpe & Cawthra (sorry not Toronto, but close).
Got my 23700 points.

The guy guessed they had 4-5 more in stock.

I’m not the original person who you’re responding to and not defending anyone. Just wanted to say teams of developers who slave hours upon hours build games. These developers need people to buy games to pay their salaries.

So, it’s far from free. In fact, if everyone just pirated, developers won’t be paid and no games would be made. Picture it this way. If you worked day in and day out in your job for months to years and then not getting paid for your work. That is the same as you believing that pirating is fine.

I’m not arguing about this game and how much effort / money Nintendo has put into these ports but pirating in general. Games don’t write themselves.
- Don't support hoarding. Do your research, decide on the price you want to pay for it. Don't ever pay more than that.

So if by your logic pirating stuff is not stealing, it means it's legal, right? I wonder why people bother with VPNs when torrenting... Irony aside, there's the concept of stealing intellectual property, it's a real concept and it's called stealing.
Happy Koodo Public Mobile customer :-)

My amazon order originally said delivery date sept 28, but came today at noon, whoo hoo. I love me some mario sunshine. These are just emulations not remakes if am not mistaken, and a bit pricey but so what, 3 great games in one!

Growing up I had an N64, GameCube and Wii yet never played any of these 3 games oddly enough..

Got a Switch and fell in love with Odyssey right away. Going back and playing these retro games for the first time is a ton of fun.

Ignore the haters in here. Some may not see any value in this but I love the convenience and it looks great on the Switch!

I would put Super Mario Galaxy 1 over Super Mario Odyssey

Ranking 3D Mario Games (not counting the 2D side-scrolling platformers):

1. Super Mario Galaxy
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Super Mario Galaxy 2
4. Super Mario 3D World (this one has 1-4 local simultaneous multiplayer, would rank it higher but the others have better level design)

quality drops way off after that

5. Super Mario 64 (still can't figure out where to go or what to do without a guide after the first few levels, had this problem back when I was a kid renting this from Blockbuster)
6. Super Mario Sunshine (The most divisive 3D Mario game, from what I played so far).

I’m playing them in order so can’t wait to get to Mario Galaxy if this is the case.

I 100% agree with you on Super Mario 64. I’ve already had to YouTube my way through finding a couple of difficult stars.

Thanks for the heads up and have fun!
