Yeah, that was on my radar not to long back with a few of their other offerings, as they still had stock on the items I wanted. Did they have a big sale recently or something? It wasn't that long ago I was looking at a few books, and they still had stock. Now it's like everything they offered is gone.

Not sure. There was a brief period around 2011 when Amazon actually carried Ballistic Publishing books. That's when I got my hardcover one.

 

ETA: I wonder if they're out of business or something. Literally everything is out of stock: http://www.ballistic...hing.com/books/

Yeah, I may have to pass on it too and stick with the standard, but damn that soda can is cool!

I mean where else can you get a can of soda like that.

Yeah, that's why I asked. Normally when a place shuts down, they remove the site, or plaster the home page with info about it. That's why I figured maybe they had a sale with prices to good to pass up, so everything was sold out. But now I will say it does seem weird nothing seems to have inventory.

 

It's cool you got yours thru Amazon, did they offer their normal style book discount at the time?

 

EDIT: I do see they have a list of stores that carries their merch, so maybe they sold all their inventory to local shops, and called it a day?

Yeah. I paid around $50 instead of $80. I had been wanting it for a while, but could never justify the $20+ shipping cost to order direct from the publisher.

$65 is too much for that.  Sorry

Well on the bright side they probably would have charged $80 for this a few months ago.  I was actually expecting them to ask $60 for it so $65 isn't too horrible.

Seems like most people are happy with $65, saw one person somewhere say we should only charge $10 more for the CE and I was like, but that doesn't even cover the box and wrapping...

I like the approach you're taking this year with less CEs.  I felt like too many sub-par games got them last year and for those of us that like getting CE's it became too much.  If you keep it limited to games worthy of it like Oddworld, I don't have any problem spending $65 here and there.  Thanks!

Honestly, I would have paid $65 for an Aqua Kitty CE if the contents are of interest to me. I don't fault LRG for how many of these they offer, or what's included. If I like whats offered I buy it, if I don't, I pass.

 

Every CE I passed on, has still sold out and made LRG funds to make other titles happen. I honestly don't get the "I don't like this, so it shouldn't be made" mentality. So long as CE are being offered, and there is a market to buy it, more power to all involved.

I'd pay $65 for your Aqua Kitty.
