Is there anyone releasing the standard edition of Hitman 3 physically? Cause $80 for a deluxe edition on LRG seems steep

LRG clarified it will also get a standard retail release. Listings just aren't up yet.

Just wait and see when the posting comes on lrg.com. BB has been pretty active lately with Ion Fury, Doom 64, Shantae, etc

Which Shantae is on BB? I just searched but only see digital versions for sale...

None are listed yet, but in the item descriptions at LRG, BB is shown as to be carrying all the recent LRG Shantae releases for Switch.

 

The first one listed will probably be the one from several months ago.

I hope BB has the PS4 version for the last one.

Does anyone want to sell their Outer Wilds preorder (regular or LE)?

"USB with All 5 Games" Forever Physical...

Not sure what the issue is.  USB drives are estimated to last 60-80 years if stored properly.  That's probably about the same as a CD-Rom or Blu-Ray assuming there aren't manufacturing defects in which case, both a USB drive and a CD-Rom/Blu-Ray are not "forever physical".

I've had more USB drives fail over time than burned CD & DVD's.  Being a writable media, USB also doesn't feel like a real archived game.  But I guess this should be super easy to backup.  Not worth $160 for that lot though.

Meh, there are plenty of examples of PSOne games that don't work anymore and tons of CDs from the 80s and 90s.  I mean, if you're constantly reading and writing to a USB, it will wear out, but if you are using it for archival purposes, it's actually a pretty safe repository.

Looking back, the only disc I've had go bad(at least that I noticed), were actually some old Lucas Arts collections that rotted sitting in the CD folder back in the day. So pretty funny seeing this being a discussion currently in this thread, as I'm still salty over that situation, as I never had the chance to even try them before they went bad.

Optical discs can definitely go bad, especially from certain replication facilities.

Failing optical discs are a real thing, but if it's a pressed disc, that failure is almost assuredly a manufacturing error vs. anything else. Rewritable flash drives are more unstable, and likewise more prone to failure.

Purely speculation here, but I think LRG will open preorders for Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 and Castlevania Anniversary Collection on 10/30.  Kind of makes sense with the Halloween holiday being the next day.

Castlevania Anniversary Collection was delayed to Q1 2021.

Delayed the delay? It's a preorder lol every game is delayed and doesn't arrive on time. What's an extra month to be thematic on Halloween?

I get it, I'm just curious how they arbitrarily decide on delays.

"Forever Physical" is LRG's tagline/motto/saying/company statement...

Yeah it's like "Limited Run" even though most games now are an unlimited run.

It's still limited - limited to however many they can sell.

that's called a "timed run" or "timed edition" in the biz.

With how many companies have entered this space in the past two years, I'm now fully expecting Timed Run Games to enter the fray next week.
