Here is your reward code!

We’re sorry!

The Super Mario Bros. collectible pin set is no longer available.

WTF!!!

Disappointed, I preordered through Best Buy on the 12th and it was supposed to arrive on the 18th as per Canada Post (Vancouver). It then changed to arrive today but it's still not here...
Is it worth it complaining to Best Buy if it doesn't arrive by the end of the day?

For the wallpaper, did you click "This is my Mario"? As for Mario Kart Tour, it won't show as completed until the 29th.

Edit: I guess you did, that's the only way to prompt the download.

So got to the credit card part, tried my card a couple of times and it didn't work. Tried putting my code in again and now it says it's unvalid code.

Do you understand that:
  1. Activision is a publisher and consists of many subsidiary game studios?
  2. I listed off singular game studios as an example?
  3. even if your example was valid (t's not), that it still wouldn't discredit what I said?
  4. the nature of game development sometimes necessitates layoffs and contract terminations during the lifetime of the development of a game? eg. concept artists once the game is released aren't needed, but you might still need SRE, dev, QA, etc. to support the game after release?
  5. some studios have multiple titles to work on they can transfer people in between, while others do not
  6. I literally worked in this industry at companies affected by these things and I might have some understanding of how this works?
Do my excuses fly yet or nah?

Hopefully they'll have more codes for pins since it's just the first day and wave 1 rewards go until 12/22.

So.. is the game worth buying if you already own the original games on the original hardware?

Depends. Do you want to replay the games? They all look better in this collection. M64 has some texture upgrades, nothing much else. Sunshine looks great in WS. Galaxy plays much better IMHO without wii motes. And looks great.
Now Heat ENABLED :)

I have to say that I really enjoy Mario 64 (and the other 2 games as well). I enjoy playing M64 with the switch controller better than the N64 controller. Also the graphics looks great. I like that I can just pickup the switch and play everywhere I want.

No, your lame excuses still don't fly, and now you are outright lying and denying facts. There are plenty of game developers besides you who have spoken up about the garbage practices in the industry that you are brushing off.

Yeah, Activision is a big publisher. What's your point? My example is very valid because it actually happened. Stop denying facts. You're not being as clever as you think. At least some of those studios you listed belong to big publishers.

Thanks for proving you are nothing more than a corporate apologist.

No more pins :(

The message is :

"We’re sorry!

The Super Mario Bros. collectible pin set is no longer available."

Will they be restocked?
