I agree there's no point in pre-ordering for the sake of ensuring a copy outside a few exceptions. However if you're going to get it day 1 anyways there's little reason not to, even if the gift doesn't interest you. After all, Amazon's bonus is almost always at least $10 credit and the gifts can almost always fetch a fair price on eBay a few months later.
If you wouldn't otherwise get it day 1 then yeah, I've seen very few pre-order bonuses worth bumping it up on my to-get list from an 'eventually' to a 'day 1'. Of course, with the backlog of things I've missed over the past few years and the knowledge that major Nintendo titles won't reach the bargain bin for a good while $20 credit from Amazon is one such bonus...I was already planning to get Metroid from day 1 anyways but a free classic controller pro on the side is pretty nice.

it's in the mail it's in the mail it's in the maili don't know how amazon does it, but release date delivery is pretty sweet.
@JumpMadIn other news, I can not beat Ridley in Super Metroid. Is there something I'm missing here?
skill. seriously though, you can get out of norfair by going through an invisible wall in the dark room with the statue of ridley's mouth at the bottom. it doesn't show up on the x-ray scanner, so it's the cheapest "secret" in the game.

Well I canceled my Amazon pre-order, and after an hour of GameStop stupidity I finally walked out with an art folio. I'll hopefully be picking it up tomorrow. I'm gonna trade-in Mario Kart Wii and Strikers Charged and get Other M for $10. Not a bad deal!

Where the heck is NL's review of this.I'm so confused The story/cut scenes sound awful but the action sounds goods.Having read 1Ups review it really is stoopid how your upgrades are only to be used when granted permission.Makes no sense!! I think I'm just gonna rent it seeing as how its pretty linear and only 7 hours long.Shame Ah well,can we have a proper 2D metroid game now please?
What's this bit for again?

@JumpMadThe reason I preordered it is because it does come with a cool prize--an art booklet. That's something that might not be enticing to everyone though so I see your reasoning.In other news, I can not beat Ridley in Super Metroid. I think the problem is I only have 6 energy tanks (and two reserve tanks). I tried leaving to go find more, but the way back is blocked by this room that's completely filled with lava. Is there something I'm missing here?

I use a walkthrough on Yuotube to get everything.
the Best way to beat Ridley, is alot of Super Missles. becuse he take a long time to beat with just Charge shots.I had the Max of 50 Super Missle and Max energy tanks , so i was good to Fight him.
You may want to go back, see what you miss.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob6CW65BIZM&feature=relatedthis help me alot
For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

I would NOT use a youtube guide. Most of them do things out of sequence and use glitches to obtain items. I spent the better part of an hour trying to reach an area that's almost impossible to jump to because a youtube guide said that's where I'm supposed to go next - it wasn't and the reason I couldn't jump was because I didn't have an item yet. The guy doing the guide decided to go for it later instead.
Anyway I beat Ridley for the first time today - I'd say it was the toughest fight in the game (much more so than Mother Brain) - you just have to learn his pattern, jump around to avoid his attacks and shoot up at him when he does that bouncing move. Took me about 3 attempts but I had collected quite a few energy tanks.

Thanks for the tips guys but it's too late--I beat Ridley
873. Posted: Mon 30th Aug 2010 23:17 BST
So any tips for Mother Brain?
874. Posted: Mon 30th Aug 2010 23:20 BST
I would never beat a game with a Glitches, or short cuts.it said so on the guide, this guy beat the game fairly and with 100%, and with easter eggs.
It shows you were to go and how to use some of Samus skills, like Wall jumping.it not easy to wall jump, and it take time to get it right.and the Guy also tells you, that you can go back to a place if you can't wall jump it.
