5 bucks for a pack of 4 Shantae cards is pricey.

And you have to order four packs if you want (all) the gold bordered ones!

Yeah, for whatever reason, most people find KOF98UM and KOF2002UM to be inferior to the original games. I certainly don't share that opinion and would rather have the extra characters and added features of 98UM.
The original KOF 98 is also playable anyway.

what?! really? i always thought UM were better and balanced further with the exception of the banned boss characters for tournament play. I wish 2002UM was ported outside Japan & x360.

It's not so bad. It's 5 dollars shipping on 4 trading cards that pricey.

There are no firm ship dates on any games from LRG.  They just say a vague 2 to 4 months even though it's hard for them to even hit 4 months much of the time.  If I had to nail down a guess, I'd say SoR4 will ship in late September.  It'll be amazing if they do better than that and I wouldn't hold my breath on September.

Any reason to think the deal to sell Shantae at Best Buy may fall through? I have tons of credit to spend there and it will save on shipping.

I know they say the” order is not final” - but this is a huge release and I’m sure Best Buy want their slice of the pie.

I'm pretty confident this will be showing up at Best Buy.

Does anyone know if LRG ever disclosed how many copies of the vita Metal Slug 3 shipped with the alternate cover?  Curious how many exist.  I was under the impression they only went out with the non-LE shipments.  I was also curious if that cover exists for the PS4, since I don't see any sold listings on ebay?  The vita one occasionally pops up for sale, but doesn't seem very common and it looks like they don't even mention it on their store listings that it had an alt cover.

They did not.  It only ever went out with copies that went out in the first batch (i.e. before the CE shipped and before any copies that were purchased with other items).  It was apparently an error as the cover did not meet ESRB requirements as a character was pointing a gun outward.  My understanding is that they actually had to have the remaining copies restuffed with the approved cover.  I would estimate only a few hundred copies at most went out with the unapproved cover.

WOW, I had no clue this game even had an alternate cover, and I wondered why my copy sold over $100+ a few months back when I listed it, and I guess now I know. LOL I wish I would have known, as I would have promoted it as such, but it sold for a good amount, so no complaints.

Seems reasonable, given how infrequently it pops up.  I suppose LRG may not even know at this point how many they shipped.

You're not alone.  I didn't know there was an alt either, as I had bought the CE version.  Given how wildly the price fluctuates on the sold listings, I don't think many people pay attention.  Makes it hard to try and determine what it's worth trying to get one for.  I only care because it's an actual alt cover and not just a reversible sealed the other way.  I don't generally try for multiple copies of the reversible cover copies as I don't keep all of mine sealed.

Well I have that cover as well. I knew they had gotten in trouble over it, but did not realize they had pulled some before shipping. Clearly looks like way more copies of the other version based on the ones listed on ebay.

This is my only gripe with LRG games and why I'm reticent to order from them IF (and only IF) the game is going to get published and sold via retail stores anyways.  With SOR4, I wanted to support them, but I'd rather get it EARLIER so I can play it (I only buy physical games).

 

For other smaller-run/lesser known games, I'm super grateful LRG brings those games to physical release. Will always try to support those releases. 

 

That all said, it's unfair for LRG because games like SOR4 and Shantae probably became popular enough to get larger physical print runs BECAUSE of LRG, and its developer-friendly approach towards not demanding exclusivity.  This, however, does mean LRG will sometimes get burned.  Kudos to LRG, though, for honoring cancellations on SOR4.  They're a solid company, and I hope they're around for a long time.

Shantae was pretty popular before lrg, I wouldn't attribute them to it's popularity in the slightest

I could've sworn there was more discussion about it in Discord, but searches didn't find anything more than Josh acknowledging it couldn't be shipped. Searching in Discord is kinda awful, but things like "Metal Slug ESRB" and "Metal Slug 3 cover" didn't return anything. Possible that I'm misremembering or possible that they really want to brush it under the rug to avoid the wrath of ESRB.

They suppressed all talk about it, I guess they thought they could just evade the esrb or something I don't really know. I'm not in the discord but I've heard they were trying to stop discussion
