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.

anyone have any experience dealing with a Ryan La Rue from Colton, OR 97017 ????

 

PM me if you have....

 

he "buys" LRG stuff on ebay, so you may want to watch out for this guy.

Uh, not that this is the place for your issues, but it would help to know specifically what the "problem" actually is? Many users here buy LRG stuff on Ebay, I was not aware that is a problem. I've also sold some LRG stuff on Ebay, why would I need to be on the look out for this guy?

Just a heads up... I was messing around with some game protectors from retroprotection.com, and realized that the specially designed size for Fire Emblem Fates 3DS works perfectly for the LRG PS4 releases of Double Dragon and River City Melee classic editions. This includes space for the tab they included on the top of the games. Check out the photos for reference:

I'm pretty curious how this Friday is going to go for Oddworld (especially the CE). I think this is probably the most desirable game they've done in a while. But I also know that there are a lot of voices echoing overall disappointment with their CE offerings. Then again, there is that soda can, which basically makes the whole thing worth it. Haha

I think it will go well, as the Oddworld games have a pretty big fan base, and LRG has done well with past titles. I'm personally passing on the CE as there are a few items I would like, but not for the asking price. It's one of the better CE I think LRG has offered, so I'm happy to see it, as many will buy in and enjoy it.

 

EDIT: BTW, here's the Mega-Bundle for you krazy collector's. LOL

The Munch's Oddysee cover art is one of the best covers of all-time.  I'm not sure what does it for me exactly.  But it's def an all-time favorite.  I think perhaps it's the juxtaposition of the green mountain dew-type can against the bleak world backdrop with the weird character as its logo.   The art has just always grabbed me for some reason, I don't know.  I had the original Xbox game in college.  We played it while we were getting high and I don't remember any of it tbh. 

 

I'll be picking this up for sure, maybe one of each of the SE and LE.

So I'm guessing the Pax East Variant will be offered at a later date after the show depending on leftover qty's? I'm low on funds this week anyways, so one less game to try and grab is for the best.

 

Is it going to be a limit of 1 for Oddworld ?

I would guess 1 for the CE, and 2 for the standard release, but this is LRG, so the morning CE may be 2 as well. I don't see any limits in place on their site yet, so who knows?

The original cover art combined with the green Xbox case is just so damn cool looking. We need green Vita cases.

CE is also 2 per person

 

What's the limit if you want to buy the CE and the standard edition? Can you get 2 of each?

Glad I won't be fighting the mob for that one, as I'll just be grabbing the standard edition and the RPG being offered this Friday.

Yep.  The green can on the newly launched green Xbox cases, along with the "only on Xbox" logo made this game legit.  It's one of the few original Xbox games I have left.  Even though I don't have a working Xbox anymore. 

 

Man that was such a cool machine when it launched back in 2001.  4-16 person Halo games, with separate screens in separate rooms, over LAN was a revelation.  It had several other exclusives too.  Young people who grew up with the 360 didn't understand what a big deal the original Xbox was for its time.  They took things like multiplayer, friends lists, chat lobbies, and Xbox Live for granted, because that's what they grew up with.  In the very late 90s we were used to playing Warcraft II multiplayer on dial-up and Everquest was the first truly authentic and modern PC MMO over the phone line as well. (save it, Ultima fans :P )

 

The original Xbox became the best party console shortly after the Dreamcast died.  Fusion Frenzy was also one of the best party games, following in the footsteps of things like Mario Party, Goldeneye, and Perfect Dark on 64.   The original Xbox was fantastic and it only needed a few games and exclusives to make it stand out.  The 360 was just a follow-up and nothing special.   The late-Gamecube to early-360-PS3 years  were the dark ages where consoles really weren't worth playing.  Everything after PS2 and Xbox sucked for a long time, outside of PC games.

I agree, with a couple exceptions. I played the shit out of ESIV Oblivion and Bioshock. Those games I have fond memories of. Although Oblivion was the first game of its genre I played so extensively, which is probably why I was so engrossed in it.
