Callin' Out the Team for a Super Fight

Stop me if you've heard this one before.

It's been about six weeks since I ordered Star Odyssey and still no game. In the mean time, I've played through both of Super Fighter Team's other Genesis/Mega Drive releases, The Legend of Wukong and Beggar Prince. They were both soul crushing chores in their own unique ways, but judging from the screen shots, I've got a lot of faith that Star Odyssey will blow 'em away.

All I've got left is Pier Solar, which apparently will take me until my unborn children finish high school to play through. But after the time it's taken to get here, now I'm worried that I'll be done with Pier Solar before Star Odyssey has a chance to grace my doorstep and whittle its way into my black heart.

Enough is enough. I decided to e-mail the Super Fighter Team asking where my game is. In SFT's defence, it's basically one guy sending out more than 300 orders. But in my defence, I'm out $48 with, so far, nothing to show for it. I can't remember if Wukong or Beggar Prince took this long to arrive, but I think the cogs spun a little faster than this.

Here's the e-mail I sent out this afternoon:

To whom it may concern,

My name is Matt and I am a freelance writer and author of Wordsmith VG: A Gamer's Blog. I ordered Star Odyssey on June 27, 2011 and have still not received the game. I understand there's a production delay, but according to an e-mail sent out by Brandon Cobb, June 27 was the cutoff date for getting a first-run copy of Star Odyssey. I can only assume that I was one of the first buyers to secure a second-run copy of the game. Either that or something has gone wrong.

I need to know if my order is still active or if we need to fix something. I'd like to review the game when it arrives.

In the meantime, I was able to play through both Legend of Wukong and Beggar Prince while waiting for Star Odyssey to be sent to me. Hopefully Star Odyssey will have no spike puzzles. I wouldn't mind a spell that drops giant pig heads on the opponents, though.

Thank you for your time.

Hopefully this will get me some answers. In the mean time, I'll be lamenting Sega's decision to require three separate power sources for the Sega CD/32X combo.
