I did not expect to be standing outside in the freezing cold and snow at 10 AM local time waiting for GameStop to open so I could pick up my pre-order, but that’s exactly what happened to me today. Despite the 72nd & Dodge location being listed as a “prestige” store on their signage, nobody was there to open the location at the appointed hour, leaving me no choice but to go to the Starbucks nearby, get a coffee, and wait… FOR AN HOUR… by which point I had already given up and ordered one from Best Buy.
The long and short of it is I will +NEVER+ pre-order another Amiibo from that GameStop location EVER again. “Prestige” my ass. Thanks for watching and subscribe if you want more video game and Amiibo content!
