Ok, haven't really followed the LRG stuff until I realized I missed out on some Star Wars games I would have liked to have gotten.  Still learning about how they do things so some of this may be standard knowledge for some of you.

 

I ran into a copy of Stranger Things 3 at Best Buy the other day and noticed it said Limited Run on the cover.  Sure enough I check the website and it says they may get a small run of the game.  I also noticed that they didn't post a production run for that game.  Is that because it was also sold at Best Buy?  Will it ever be posted and if so will that include the run that was sold at Best Buy?

 

At first they would post only so many copies would be available and would go on sale at X time.  I would always be at work and it seemed like a huge hassle to try to beat out the resellers.  Looks like now they just set up a preorder window and see how many are ordered from there?  Wouldn't be surprised this is the better way to go considering the abundance of "limited" games available.

It’s all case by case for each release now. Some are limited prints that go up in 2 batches. Some are open preorders for roughly 1 month. Some are also carried by Best Buy (typically just Switch open preorder releases)

You have to check the page for each release to see what their plans are for each title

Pretty much all Switch games are open preorder

It is $40 digital, so probably $60

It's 2 games, so probably $120

And from what I've heard/read, it acts as an epilogue to the series, so it's almost required for fans.

Wonder why they are taking so long to tweet about Grandia HD Collection this Friday?  Unless its been delayed or something.

Heads up. If you want the Ys CE on Switch I would recommend ordering very soon. LRG originally had the Pre order date go out another month, but changed that via a Tweet. As of a couple hours ago they changed it to limited quantity with 600 copies left, and a decent dent has already been put into that quantity.

Saw this earlier and just put an order in. The count is down to ~400.

Where do you see the count at? I've been debating this even though I'll probably never play it. Need to start saving money

Try to add 999 to the cart and you'll be told how many are left.

You normally have to put in a higher amount, and see how many the system allows, and that's the qty's left.

Deliver Us the Moon looks pretty cool and has good reviews.  The old me would have been all over it.  Unfortunately it has just gotten too expensive keeping up so I will pass, I have enough of a backlog to stay busy for the next 20 years LOL.

I've been on the internet long enough to know that's not true.

The good news is that the standard edition should be available at many retailers including Best Buy, Amazon and Gamestop, so there is a good chance the price will go down in the future.  I can see this being one of those Gamestop DOTD games for $15 or less.

Best Buy is desperate to get rid of their Limited Run Power Rangers stock with the price now down to $40.

$50 for Samurai Jack is way overpriced.

Yikes, I was expecting $40. LRG clearly knows who would be buying that (anyone who wants to see the "official" end to the story).

I am an absolute sucker for nostalgia. I hold Power Rangers near and dear to my inner child, but this looks beyond barebones. Any opinions?

He said that because there's an updated version coming on all platforms for $10 cheaper. Not to be blunt, but they're hoping extremely ignorant people buy up the leftover true barebone stock.

While it's cheaper, it's not really updated in any meaningful way.  My understanding is that the only difference is that it comes with one DLC character skin and a Season 3 character on a slip of paper/code.

It’s the collectors edition, which includes the season 1 DLC (4 characters) plus an exclusive new character. Keep in mind it looks like there are already season 2 and 3 DLCs

I’ve never played the game, so I’m not an expert. I’m just going off what’s on the eshop
