Let's hope. The transition to DHL has been anything but smooth. I've got two orders that are apparently "On Deck" and scheduled to ship this month, I'll report back whether or not I get emails on those.

DHL just seems like UPS 2.0... Obra Dinn CE supposedly shipped a week ago but still hasn't been picked up. And of course, this is after over a month of the initial DHL issue.

I'm still waiting for the Art of Shantae regular edition I ordered from Target 3 months ago as part of their last B1  G1 50% off sale.  I've approved like 4 delays on it.  

    :lol:  :lol:  LOL EXACT same thing here!

I have a feeling they "shipped" the Obra CE on the 15th just to buy time and avoid questions. Interesting timing as it was the end of the 2nd week of July.

Just curious, is there any reason to buy the PS5 versions of these games?  Especially basic ones like the Kemco games. I  would assume the Ps4 and Ps5 versions perform the same as either system could easily run the game.  PS4 version would give more flexibility since it can be ran on both a PS4 or a PS5 system while the PS5 version can only be ran on a PS5.  Or am i missing something?

Reminded myself I need to pre-order the Takeover (PS4).  I wish Best Buy would carry this one, but given it's not Castlevania or Scott Pilgrim, understandably no. 

 

Glad LRG is releasing a physical release, albeit I'd prefer if it were in the $29.99 bucket.

Presumably the native PS5 versions will be a little more optimized, but these aren't exactly games that are pushing the boundaries of graphics or requiring extraordinary load times. I don't think you're missing anything, I think they're just trying to push more sales.

Thanks for the heads up!

Their Twitter/Facebook posts from 7/15 made it sound like both versions would be open pre-orders so it's really irritating that they didn't clarify the PS4 version would be limited to 1500 until this morning.

 

I was able to order a copy from the 2nd batch just now - fyi they're already down to ~160 copies in case anyone else wants to grab one.

ask about this on facebook all they told me was "PS5 is open pre-order! Did you get your PS4 copy, too?!"

 

I told them no I didn't know it was limited until I had all ready made my order

I can't speak to Infliction specifically, but when this was asked about the Shantae games, WayForward replied that the PS5 versions would have Activity Cards along with some DualSense features.

Where can you find out how many copies they have left of a title?

Some of the Idea Factory PS4 and Switch games are getting stupid high in price on the secondary markets compared to this time last year. I wonder if they can work out some sort of distribution deal with them for a few thousand copies for like $39.99 + shipping or whatever.

The PS5 versions sometimes have a few worthless gimmicks thrown in. Personally I'd rather have the PS4 versions because the PS4 blue logo looks way cooler than the white logo. But that's a matter of taste.

Thanks!  I was interested in Infliction and Outbreak Collection but was going to hold off until close to close of the open order window to get both of them.  I would have missed out!  Went ahead and grabbed Infliction. 

 

Also thinking I'm going to go ahead and order stuff separately from now on considering the massive wait times for some items.  I still have a game on my account shown as "in hand" but unfullfilled for going on about the second month.

LRG will be doing another print run of Mary Skelter 2. I'm guessing it will be sold when the new game is up for preorder.

Are they going to smash all those consoles with a mallet & sell them as a one of a kind LRG release?  At this point I don't know anymore.

Gonna be a bloodbath on the Vita version. I'm glad I was able to get a copy off of eBay from someone who got it in a blindbox.

for those who ordered the Obra CE, have you received yours yet? I guess I'll be contacting them yet again, this is ridiculous

My Obra CE finally arrived on Monday. The tracking number provided by LRG was completely different from the one on the box. I'm not sure why they needed to make three different labels for this shipment. I understand the first label expired due to DHL's rules, but why was the second one not used and why make a third one, but not let me know about it?
