Has anyone get a shipment notice for the Oddworld: Munchs Oddysee PAX variant and Skullgirls 2nd Encore yet? I thought they were shipping those immediately? 

That just means those are shipping out first. Shipping can still take a week or two for fulfillment

Awesome thanks for this. Had no idea that even existed.

There are a few others you may be interested in, The Mask, Mega Man, Pirates of Dark Water, Swat Kats, I'm sure there are more, that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

 

The Mask is only available at wbshop.com

EDIT: Just looked at some of my stuff, I also have Street Sharks, Beetlejuice, King Arthur and the Knights of Justice.

I got my shipping notice Friday afternoon but it hasn’t been picked up yet.

I got my Munch's Oddysee CE and three CE protector boxes, but I was surprised to find the CE protector boxes don't fit Munch's Oddysee. They do fit the La Mulana EX CE and the Ys Origin CE.

Don't forget, The Tribute Treasure box goes up in about 30mins. Not a big deal for the standard offerings, as they'll be around for a few weeks, but this is only offered today and limited to 3000.

Interestingly, the standard edition preorders have already sold around 1000 each.

I'm probably going to just grab Flinthook at some point over the next few weeks, and wait for the Vita version of Mercenary Kings.

I'm on-board for Flinthook. Haven't decided if I want Mercenary Kings or not. Conflict among feelings of "Gotta collect 'em all" and "But it sounds like a multi-player focused game" and "I really already have enough games" and "But it's only $30." Will wait until I work out which feeling wins before ordering one or both regular edition games sometime today.

Mercenary Kings plays well enough by yourself. It's mainly how repetitive it is, how the jumping works, and other things that are bigger problems. I did get through a lot of it playing by myself though a while back.

There's supposed to be a few more games going up for order this Friday too, including a Vita title (Siralim I think?)

Just noticed that today's Switch games are slated to ship in August. I understand, and it's written in bright red, bold font on the page, but I wonder how the Switch crowd will react. They don't exactly give the impression they're patron saints of patience.

Yeah, it's this or fighting it out for "limited" qty's on Friday's, take your pick? I'm sure LRG is  Fuck ed either way. LOL

Yeah, I really hope the Vita version happens, as that game looks cool.

Na, Nintendo fans bought it and got burned by it. Non-Nintendo fans are the ones that came out on top.

Rate of shipping shouldn't be an issue for most people on this site. It's not like we don't have huge backlogs already.

I think it's less adding a game to the backlog and more having money hanging out there. Personally, that hasn't affected my LRG purchases, but it has affected my Kickstarter backing and why I don't preorder a game any more than a couple/few weeks before its confirmed release (assuming there's a worthwhile physical preorder bonus).

I'm not on social media, so I can't vote, but I prefer Mondays myself, as it keeps things from getting to busy on Friday's. I'm sure some will prefer saving on shipping, so Friday's will probably get those votes.

Fridays were at over 60% when I saw this yesterday evening.

Yeah, I always figured Friday's would win out(I'm cool either way). LRG has asked in the past about similar types of situations, and having everything offered at once was always the most voted. I would rather be able to get all the games I want Vs. saving a few dollars on shipping. Of course LRG has a HUGE international fan base, so I can understand the voting from that side of the situation, as international shipping is no longer cheap(not that it ever was). LOL

Where's the "whenever Switch games can be shipped out within 1 month instead of 3+" option? :razz:

I don't care what day Switch games are offered... especially since so far they are all pre-orders.  Monday isn't bad as it sort of forces them to go ahead and start advertising the week before which is more notice than most ps4/vita games seem to get.

LRG finally made steelbooks which is awesome, yet it comes in a package that costs $89.99.

 

I'm in the "who cares anymore" stage of LRG collecting now.  I love steelbooks more than anyone.  The ones LRG has made look great.  But I'm not trying to go spend ninety dollars (for pre-orders) on indie games I wasn't planning on buying.  That's just about the cost of two $48 brand new release games like God of War and Ni no Kuni.  Everything that's nice is in collector's editions now and the standard games usually cost $29.99 or $34.99, plus shipping.  So I've lost a lot of interest.  Even on the more enticing offerings.  LRG doesn't have the small-guy company feel anymore and has gone mainstream anyways.  They won't miss me.   They can make $100 collector's editions of "Senko no Ronde 2" and people will buy it.  Things aren't going to change.  They have enough people buying premium products from them now.  Like a $65 game from the 90s that comes with a plastic frisbee. For people who are made of money, then everything LRG is doing is great.  But I'm a CAG. 

 

Thimbleweed Park and Oddworld were great choices to release.  I'm just going to be sticking to those types of good releases and buy mostly standard editions from now on.
