None on eBay yet either, makes me question if they over-inflated the odds of getting one to entice set collectors to bite. Pretty much everyone who has posted so far got crappy games. With that said, people who got good ones wouldn’t be complaining so maybe that’s why we haven’t heard stories of someone getting something good.

Someone posted on Twitter they received Paper (posted a pic)

March shirt looks way better than the February one: https://limitedrunga..._eid=720f4b8d3f

 

I'm curious how many people are actually buying these though

I might consider it if they weren't so ridiculously expensive.  $25 plus shipping for a tshirt that cost a buck or two to make?  I kind of liked the long sleeve shirt design of last month, but no way was I paying $35 plus shipping for it.

I look at blind boxes the same way I look at scratch off lotto tickets. Somebody's got to win, but it probably won't be me.

So the switch version of Power Rangers Battle for the Grid is on sale for $49 at Best Buy. Worth it now or wait for a larger price drop?

Na, I pretty much break even on scratch off tickets. Those are much better odds.

Got the Shantae boxes, woohoo!

 

Just need to track down a copy of the Pirate's Curse CE on Switch to complete my set...

Quiet in here today, guess nothing new this week? I'm just happy I got my Shantae Pax boxes. :D

 

I also opened my blind boxes. I was hoping for a good title.... got Hue Vita and Another World on Switch instead. Bleh. Hue has good reviews, just not a fan of puzzle games generally.

So I checked stock of the Shantae GBC early this morning and they had 900 copies of each loaded on the site, did they only sell 100 copies of each over all of PAX?

No one ever breaks even on kind of gambling. If they did then no one would bother making those tickets, or have any kind of gambling. There is a reason why that industry rakes in mountains of cash every year and that's because 99% of players lose.

Wouldn't be too surprising. I mean, at the end of the day, it's a box with a fake cart... not a great value. Only made for suckers like me. I think it was pretty similar with the Seven Sirens, they had a ton left and that one was more appealing since it was a new/unreleased game and a bigger nostalgia factor seeing it for the first time.

I got an email from LRG saying they had some PAX leftover for sale.  Let me get this straight, they are selling a BOX with a non functioning game for $29.99?  Really?  I don't understand why anyone would buy that...

*sigh* Yeah...

 

If it had official licensing and logos from/of Nintendo and the GBC, I can kind of see that, but it's plastered with LRG and doesn't compare in my opinion.

Nostalgia is expensive, suckers are cheap.

The unreleased stuff is fetching a pretty hefty premium. Guess people just really want to be done with LRG.

I know i sure af do. I don't even have a problem with most of what they do, but damn do I hate my money being tied up for months at a time. Back when I could impulse buy stuff and have it in a week or two to fill gaps between retail games I bought way more often. Now I buy a game and forget what it even was months before I'm reminded with a shipping email. Makes it easy for me to pass.
