The Red Hood stuff looks cool, it's going to be weird playing as a character who uses guns in a Barman game. I still need to pay off my collector's edition of the game. Have it pre-ordered at Gamestop.

Fuck Gamestop. I haven't given them any money of mine since the PSP first came out. And that was a bad investment for me cuz turns out not many PSP games came out that were ones I wanted.

I preordered the PS4 Batmobile Edition all the way back on on Sept 9th. My credit card was recently stolen while on a trip. When I realized this game was almost out I checked the website to see if it was preordered with the stolen card. Alas, their website does not let you change preorder payment info and said I had to call .... holy hell what an experience.

First, you wait for 30 mins and listen to terrible game ads and Gamestop deals. I'm convinced they keep you on hold a long time to make sure you hear all the ads. Anyway, their call center is either in India, or filled with people from India as that is all you can hear in the background the entire time.

Me: My credit card was stolen and I need to change the payment information.
Her: We can't do that without canceling the order.
Me: You can't change payment information!?
Her: No, it's our policy that we have to cancel any order when changing payment information.
Me: But the credit card was stolen, won't the order be canceled anyway when it doesn't go through?
Her: Uh, that's a good point, I will have to check with a manager.

Hold for 10 more minutes.

Her: Sorry to keep you waiting sir, yes I can change your payment information but the order will be canceled.
Me: "Bangs head on desk" The item is sold out and I have had it ordered for almost nine months. What do you suggest I do here? It seems the order is going to be canceled regardless of what I do.
Her: Can I put you back on hold sir?
Me: Sure ....

Hold for five more minutes.

Her: Thank you for holding sir. I can try and change the payment information but there is a chance the order will be canceled. I am also going to email our tech service to inform them of the situation.
Me: I guess I have no chance but to risk changing it. "Give her the number".

Thankfully the order is still open with the new card. Changing payment information, on preorders of all things, should be a quick and easy task completed online, not an aggravating hour experience on the phone.

I mostly went with them because I'll be able to pick up my collector's edition the day of release whereas most other stores where I'm at aren't likely to carry anything other than the standard game. Plus the pre-order exclusive content is nice, even though it'll be available to everyone eventually. I don't really like or dislike Gamestop in general though. Just another store to me.

Well Son of a B****!!!! Word going around is that the Batmobile Edition many of us have had ordered for almost a year has been cancelled, days before release. Gamestop has been calling people reading the letter from WB.

I wonder if there weren't enough pre-orders for it. I thought that $200 seemed like a lot to ask despite the statue looking pretty cool. It is sort of odd that if they planned to cancel that edition they didn't announce it sooner.

Anytime I see news like this, I can only think how appropriate this clip is to real life:

I would've ordered if Amazon had it. They listed it as unavailable for quite some time.

Yeah, it sounds like the entire edition was scrapped due to quality issues. You gotta hand it to them though, good on them for canceling it rather then shipping out a shitty product that consumers wouldn't be happy with.

I wonder if they had them manufactured and they were just shitty quality and they just scrapped them and took a loss or what. Its really late to cancel at this point when the game releases next week.

Would have been produced long ago though. No reason to wait six days before release.

If they can't get a $200 Batmobile right, I can't wait to see my LE statue looks like

Could have been something they were trying to fix up till the last minute and couldn't do it. So they just said the heck with it.

do we know the US people are getting the orders cancelled? that's obviously a UK letter.

I saw one person on facebook complaining about getting a call and having his order cancelled. They read the letter via phone. My order is still open though.

Lots of reports in the US of cancellations. Amazon apparently giving out $20 credit, Gamestop giving out... a new 52 skin.

But yeah, a week before release, these things should've already been packaged to ship out. Isn't the whole reason that expensive Halo CE is coming without an actual game disk is so that it can ship out on time?

Got my cancellation email.

Walmart and Target still have the LE up for preorder for those looking.

Yeah, sorry, that was confusing.

The $250 Halo 5 LCE (with the main draw being a statue done by the same guys who were supposedly doing this batmobile) is going to come with the same steelbook as the LE, but with no disk inside, only a digital code. It'll apparently be sold a little early so hardcore fans can preload the digital game, though there's a lot of negative feedback about this. I had thought it was so that the gigantic boxes could be shipped on time, but apparently not.

Still, they should have known about the problems with this batmobile version a while ago, not a week before release, with fans stuck searching for an LE that is mostly sold out everywhere as a replacement.

I didn't hear about the Halo thing until now, that's a really stupid move and I would be pissed if I spent $250 and didn't get a physical copy of the game.

Reviews look great. Much rather drop 50 on this than another 40 on Destiny.

That's a hell of a line to close on the Polygon review

"After Arkham Knight, Batman has been perfected — and the end result is the best game of this console generation."

Can't wait to start this next week. Just waiting on damn Wally World to ship my LE.

The tanks stuff seems kinda lame to me, and unnecessary - hopefully it's more fun than it looks.
