Or you can wait for the blowout sale on the the beginning of the year. Hopefully, they will put that to sell.

The best part about LRG now is that they help me discover new games on Steam.

 

$34.99 + shipping + 9 months or whatever is a wholllle lot different from $24.99 + shipping that it used to be.  It used to be what I'd call a ten-dollar tax to get a physical disc. They announce games I want but I don't even buy from them anymore.  "Cool," then +add it to the wishlist on Steam. 

 

Like Unsighted there.  No one has some strong emotional attachment to that game.  It's brand new.  We buy stuff just like that on clearance at BB or Amazon.

It's okay.  You didn't buy it because you didn't want (to pay that much for) it.

 

Me neither.

Unsighted is alright. I kind of don't want to play LRG prices when the game is on Gamepass. I grew tired of the environmental puzzles (especially during boss fights...weird controls on PC), but it was passable. An easy 6.5/10 or so, which a little bit better than average for me. It's hard to get attracted to newer games, when we haven't played them and they want $15+MSRP+Shipping for them plus the damn protection rate thing. It's ridiculous, but for some games it's worth it. I took a chance on Demon Turf because it was on some GOTY lists I saw. I wouldn't do that for most of these though unless I have prior experience to the series like Gotta Protectors (liked the 3DS one so Switch one was a no brainer). I don't buy many gams from them anymore though.

"What is Route?"

"Route is premium package protection and live tracking for your order. If your item is lost, stolen, or damaged you can get a replacement or refund in no time."

 

"Is Route really worth it?"

 

"We think so! Route will always be an optional add on to your order. Since Route has an automated claim app, your claim can be approved in a fraction of the time it would take for LRG to process, all without even having to talk to a human. Why is this? Route has dedicated staff just for this purpose. No more support tickets and you'll always be covered with Route. Also, if you're anything like us you obsessively check your tracking when an order is shipped. With Route you can view a real time map of where your package is and (optionally) subscribe to SMS updates for your order."
 

 

It's fine that LRG offers something like Route, but it's ridiculous that it's added automatically to cart. I've even seen it re-added to cart after I removed it. I almost didn't catch it as I knew I had just removed it!

Yikes. More corner-cutting on Monkey Island. Considering how much effort they put into that CE and how highly-regarded the IP is, you think they'd try harder to make good on this.

Wow, the choice of a brick wall or Shredder's head covered by logos? Reversible covers should be totally different if you ask me.

I think it's a throwback to the Turtles Arcade NES box art but yeah it's not much different.

Wow, LRG is really abandoning their whole "All DLC Included on Disc" mantra they used to have for most of their previous releases.  With three DLC packs of five songs at $12 each, none of which included, I have no choice but to pass on this one simply out of principal.

Signature Edition Games got their own TMNT exclusive:

I like the reversible cover on TMNT.  Very nostalgic.  That said, I wouldn't ever buy something from LRG that is going to be at retail.

Yeah they are scumbags for how they implemented route.

@Shipping protection markup costs... what, paying for overpriced cardboard and knock-off Amibos on a styrofoam plate needs additional up charges for insurance?

@Miku VR, rumor is we're getting Miku MegaMix for PC tomorrw, May 26, 2022, so that would be rad.  Sad US never got a physical release; that being released, with all DLC, on one cart, would be a real win.  I'd pay a premium for that, even.  But the VR only game and only the minimal content?  Only simps (LRG or Miku) would fork that over... (and I own a lot of the releases, so I'm throwing cinder blocks in my glass house).

@Burning DVD-Rs... lol.  And I like how the one comment on Twitter says most folks don't know because they never open their games. :bouncy:

If LRG offers the CE, I will 100% be buying it from them.  Right now, I have it pre-ordered through Amazon who will end up shipping it in a plastic bag and I'll have a 1:1000 chance of it not arriving damaged.

Holy Fuck.  My Bloodrayne order just shipped so now I only have 1 open order with LRG.  I've been cutting back but I was going to maybe place a order for Contra.  Now I just want to hold off just so I can have a moment where I have zero orders waiting to be fullfiled lol.

I wasn't aware Amazon had a pre-order page for Shredder's Revenge yet. Can't seem to find it, only the one for the Cowabunga Collection.

He's talking about the one you're thinking. Shredder's Revenge is only being offered through LRG for NTSC version

Is that true? I thought Shedder's Revenge will be sold at retailers after LRG's Pre-Order period.

Limited Run themselves say it’ll be coming to “major retailers”.

The standard edition will be sold at major retailers.  The CE will be exclusive to LRG's site.  Hopefully that clears up some of the confusion about it.

I'm glad I don't care at all about collector editions.  Standard release is perfectly fine by me.

Yeah I have to love, love a game to want a CE/LE. If it's like $10 more I may just get that edition, but in LRG's part they can be a lot more expensive. I generally value a few things in LEs (full soundtracks, full art books, and plushies), but those are so rare I rarely get them. Frankly they just take up more room, and a lot of the times the things in the LEs/CEs are just not worth it.
