Yoooookaaaaaa Layleeeeeee!!!! Why am I so excited?! Because I enjoy when things just work. And that is exactly what happened here.


My SNES Classic Pre-Order has NOT been cancelled by Wal-Mart. [UPDATED]

UPDATE: They finally cancelled it. The original story is below.

It was Friday night, I was in bed watching LivePD when I got the text from Clifford. “Pre-Orders are Live!” with a link to Wal-Mart. I sprang into action, trying to pre-order from my phone. I was having issues so I got up and ran to my office to hop online using my desktop.

I didn’t even think twice about this game when it came out. I thought “Who cares?!” the first one had mixed reviews at best, why on earth is there another one? It wasn’t even a blip on my radar except for really enjoying the videos that Outside Xbox/Extra were putting out about it. I laughed at the videos, thought maybe it looked ok, if a bit boring and life went on.
