Anyone gotten a copy yet? I've been looking for it everywhere, can't find it. Looks like the only place to find it is online.

I've had no luck finding a copy in my area (Orlando FL), but some people in SoCal and NYC/NJ have copies ( they took pictures ). It's really frustrating!

Both Gamestop and Amazon are stating the game is delayed, while snkplaymoreusa says the game was already shipped.

Hagen and i went to a Gamestop here in Houston and the employees gave us a MYSTERIOUS NUMBER to call, saying that the people at this number had a copy of KOF XI. i called it, asking where they were. they gave me some street name. i asked what city, and they sounded puzzled. then i asked what state, and they thought it was a prank call

The clerk at my local Gamestop seemed frightened and confused when I tried to pre-order KoFXI several weeks back. But considering the stealth release schedule that SNK likes to use I can understand why the fellow got a bit freaked out when he couldn't fully understand SNK's distribution methods. If my on-line order of the game is ever filled I will be pleasantly surprised.

Personally I feel for the gamestop clerks, I mean come on, they get paid minimum wage for video game nerds to come in and quiz them on their knowledge of games.

Its not like these particular customers need help as they already know more than the clerks but they feel the need to "challenge" them on their knowledge just to give them a chance to bitch about how they know nothing.

I'm not blasting the clerks as much as I'm condemning the stores. Gamestop et al are specialized videogame stores - that is to say that that is the main item they sell. Yet whenever I go into one of these stores they neither have or have heard of anything but the most high profile games.

If you can't find a copy of a lower profile game at a videogame store than where are supposed to go? I mean I really don't need to go to a game specific store to find copies of Halo, Madden, or GTA - you could buy Halo 3 at freakin' 7-11.

Essentially I feel that more often than not Gamestop/EB/etc fails to offer anything beyond what I could get from non-gaming stores like Best Buy. And to me that makes for a lousy game store.

I preordered the game through Amazon before the game's original October release date, but then it was pushed back. Now Amazon and Ebgames online say they have the game in stock, and Amazon is scheduled to ship my game tomorrow. I guess we'll find out, won't we?

Variable Savior's lovely rant

truth. well, for the most part

in my opinion (and remember, my opinion's about as valuable as a pile of shit), Gamestop/EB breeds a type of asshole that you can only find working at their stores. how many times have i been yelled at for not preordering a game?

me - hey do you guys have [obscure game]?
them - (after looking up the item) nope. -- oh wait, did you preorder it?
me - no
them - well, then! that's what happens! should've preordered it!

i've preordered countless games, so i can get whatever shitty item that comes with preordering, or so i can make sure that i can have a copy of a game, or for whatever other reason. and countless times, i've had my preordered game or my shitty item given away or sold. if my preordering doesn't reserve the item for me, then why am i wasting my fucking time?

how many times have i been talked down to or fed bullshit information about games? i know, i honestly feel for Gamestop/EB employees too, or at least i did at one point in my life. i know they're only human like you and me, or at least they once were. these idiots think they have all this fucking power, they think that they've inherited the knowledge of the gods simply because they work at a game store. fuck that

Variable Savior is right. i would so much rather tear apart a Best Buy or Circuit City with my bare hands to look for a game than deal with a Gamestop/EB employee

i've only met two or three Gamestop/EB clerks that have been genuinely nice or useful to me, so this obviously doesn't apply to all of them. but i guess if you rummage through enough shit, you'll eventually find a diamond or two. i guess

I've got some friends that have worked at EB/Gamestop and their attitudes often annoy me. They'd tell me "horror stories" about dumb customers like parents who don't understand that you can't play an xbox game on gamecube and LOL about it. But you know what? Alot of people don't play videogames and they really don't know simple info like that. All they want to do is make their kids happy so in those situations you should do your gosh danged job in a non condescending way and actually try to help someone for a change.

It's not just EB Clerks though. The workforce seems to turn everyone (for instance waiters) into hateful assholes.

That reminds me of the "Paris Syndrome", where Japanese people had to be brought back to Japan in emergency after being shocked by the rudeness of French waiters. And then they wrote books about it.
As a Parisian asshole, I take pride of my fellow waiters who worked hard for freeing our city from the foreign invader.

Well, it's not like they're making any money or have any benefits... if you're working one of those minimum wage jobs and aren't living with your parents, odds are you're also working at least one other crappy job somewhere else to pay for your run-of-the-mill apartment. I honestly don't care if people aren't grinning from ear to ear when I walk in the door at Walgreens because I've worked their job before, and it sucked. Just as long as they're not a giant dick and help me find whatever I've wandered into the store for, then I'm satisfied. I have the softest spot for waiters since they only make $2.13 an hour and the rest of their income is a Russian Roulette game in the hands of the customer. "Oh, I didn't know 10% was a horrible tip... I thought tip was already added to the check... You should have brought me my ranch dressing faster... I'm sorry, I knew I was going out to eat, but I didn't bring money to tip you..."

I don't depend on Gamestops and so forth for pretty much the reasons here. If I'm not getting a less-than-popular game, I can go to a Best Buy instead. I just about never pre-order since the games they harp on for pre-orders are popular enough to be found anywhere else. The bonuses I'm supposed to get are hardly ever there when I get my game (I was shocked that I got my Helena figure for pre-ordering DOAXVB 2). You've just gotta remember- unless there's something cool you MIGHT be getting in return for a pre-order other than the game, just ignore them and get it anywhere you like. They're basically just trying to guarantee a sale at their store and nothing more. You're not gonna have any issues digging up Bioshock on release day in any given store.

Sounds like a job for the Hate Hate Hat. I can't tell whether the American tipping system is awesome or terrible, but it's definitely unusual. Generally takes about a paragraph to explain all the protocols, I realized when explaining this in another language one time. Ask for check-get check-add payment-give check-wait for return-ad check-leave. Hmm. But anyway.

Suffice to say Gamestop-type places would get a 8 percent from me at best. In Tokyo's Takadanobaba /Waseda area there's a small game shop that has even ruder service than Gamestop, the only place I can think of that does. At least that burnout clerk doesn't want you to preorder games, though.

Pre-ordering games is actually much more vital to the health of smaller companies. If alot of people pre-order a lesser known title, it tells the store to actually stock that title instead of just getting in 1 or 2 copies and then never restocking it.

You guys are doing a great job. The last time i was in Paris i found a pube in my coffee. It was curly and everything. The waiter just ignored it and suggested that it was perhaps MY pube. Suffice it to say I never got a refund.

I do miss those little cups of café though. Damn.

you'd think right? but they don't. how many times have I "pre-ordered" only to find out they have already sold it. Not only with games, but with figures as well. I preordered a fucking box of Series 2 SF figures for Onslaught, only to find out when I got there that they sold them, big help it was to preorder. By this I'm referring to Gamestop, even Toy's R us does a better job.

Well, aside from the "maybe they'll have it, maybe they won't" factor of pre-ordering, when's the last time they've asked you at the counter to pre-order something lesser-known? You'll never hear "Did you want to pre-order Metal Slug Anthology?" or Odin Sphere or anything along those lines. But they'll definitely bring up Mass Effect or Rock Band or something along those lines.

Yes, I know my examples have all come out already, but I'm kind of behind on what's coming out. Heh heh. YOU GET THE POINT

That's why it's important to pre-order those games that they don't ask you about. Otherwise they really won't carry them.

Also, for those of you guys in NoVa, have you been to Starland? It's the original store opened by the guy who made eStarland. It's a neat place; i used to work there. It's a place where they WILL ask you if you want to preorder the next King of Fighters.

eStarland! I used to really love that place, now that's sorta cooled off ever since they decided they didn't care about caring any non-American releases anymore. I don't really know what their deal is and why they changed. I knew it was over when they didn't even carry a Japanese copy of FF XII... At least I managed to get two Saturn-shaped Udon Street Fighter PS controllers from them.

It's funny you mention Odin Sphere because when I went to buy Rocket Slime they recommended that I pre-order Odin Sphere. Then when I picked up Odin Sphere they tried to get me to preorder Persona 3. Which was annoying and rude so I spat on them and yeah that store sucks. But I'm sure they only did it because they were forced to by Atlus' total sell-out marketing campaigns.

I found both of those at a Gamestop a couple weeks ago, but I didn't buy them because... well, I don't really have any attachment to the games in those collections.

As for KOF, I bit the bullet and just ordered it from Amazon after I asked the guy at EB Games about it and told me the closest place that had it was in Texas (which I learned independantly from GameFaqs, funny enough).

The hidden beauty of ordering from Amazon or other on-line stores is that you can track the progress of your package as it winds its way over hill and dale to get to you. Who needs an actual vacation when I can live vicariously through the trip my purchased item is taking?

As for KoFXI I finally secured a copy. While I'm enjoying it so far I'm amazed that SNK managed to make a final boss that is as lame and annoying as any they have ever made. SNK is a company that is all about tradition even if the tradition is something that should probably be forgotten.

Good to hear that nothing was lost in the conversion. I guess all that extra time that SNK got with by constantly pushing back the release date paid off... or something like that.

Also, as an admendment to my previous post I did want to note that Magaki is actually quite manageable when I switched from arcade to arrange mode in the options. While creating a great many more openings on the final boss may be going against the purpose of the character I appreciated not feeling as if I was being punished for trying to complete the game.

I got my copy yesterday. Magaki makes me want to chuck the disc out the window in spite of the fact I had to wait a week for it to come in the mail.

I also find it silly that I unlocked Mr. Big and Geese long before I figured out how to unlock Tung. But then, I suck at combos like that.

Magaki never gave me any trouble, but to me, SNK bosses are usually "hit or miss". Like, I've heard people complain about Omega Rugal, who I find tremendously easy, but hear very few complaints about Krizalid, who I find unbearably annoying (thanks to that damn suction axe kick).

Then you have just about every Samurai Spirits boss, who I find completely impossible unless I just jump up and down in the corner.

Krizalid is so easy, even if you only use fast Jumd+CD attack. That was my easiest kof boss ever. On the other hand Igniz. He is a total nightmare to me. He eats much more coins of mine than Mario would get from "everywhere is coin" stages, just for one ending.

So I'm looking for a place to buy it for a cheap $15 with free shipping cause Gamestops are still selling for $20. I could get me a hearty burger with that $5!

I waited a few weeks for the Brookline GameStop to finally get it in. It was gone before I could even make it over... so I ordered it on Amazon with 2-day shipping, and it turned out to be a buck or two cheaper than game + tax + public transportation would have been. I felt like an idiot for waiting that long, even.

So did NGBC actually ship in the US, or is SNKP having a bit of fun with us again?

Amazon assures me that my copy shipped yesterday, and that it'll arrive... in the middle of next week?! Yeah, I got no shipping confirmation and only found this out because I emailed them and said I wanted to cancel, but they told me it wasn't possible because it was already off. At least they're refunding the shipping price in full. I'm not entirely convinced it's on its way, but...

Interesting. I ordered a copy from eStarland and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it arrives by the weekend (they emailed me w/ deliv conf #).
I understand that SNKP actually took the time to translate win quotes and endings (missing in PAL version).
Keep us updated on Amazon's shipping.
If anyone else has snagged a copy... are you enjoying it?

I ended up ordering a copy from FamilyVideo when I thought I could still cancel my Amazon order, so now it looks like I might end up with two of them next week! Or maybe just one... the Amazon one shipped today, meaning it should be here on Monday, probably.

I'm still convinced that it'll just be an empty box and NGBC won't be out til '08. Until it shows up, I won't believe otherwise.

I messed up by ordering today and now that I think about it it will not be in my hands until after X-mas. Bullocks, I say. I am thinking that it will end up "lost" in the mail.

Have faith fellows. Mine arrived this morning in the post. Win Quotes and endings are indeed translated (with some lovely typos and SNKisms).

That's good to hear. It's just not an SNK game unless it reads as if it was translated by someone who doesn't speak either English or Japanese.

It's real! There's even a disc inside! Time to see if the PS3 fast loading really does help with the nasty load times.

The US version definitely has bug fixes, but I can't say for sure what is fixed and what isn't. I haven't heard reports of any problems with the US PS2 release, though. I'd be curious to see a list of known bugs from the JPN version.

Bumping this thread just to note that I finally got a copy of NGBC. Er, maybe I should say that I now own a copy of NGBC, since after playing a few rounds I'm still not sure whether I "get it" yet or not. Between the odd feel of NGBC and my Brain Age game telling me that we needed to see other people and summarily dumping me it was an weird weekend for videogames.
