A "thin box"? I was under the impression that box was the size of the old LucasArts big box PC games. I don't think it's really that small. And that CE I consider to be better than most, but probably because they selling nostalgia more than anything (sold).
This Senko No Ronder CE is actually the first one they did that has everything I'd want in a CE. But, the game itself along with the price kept me away. I would've loved to just buy it to support that kind of CE, but I have to really think I'll be into the game at that price point. Otherwise, I'd be buying every single NIS LE.
I'm pretty sure he means the actual box housing the contents is thin, not that the contents itself are thin.
Personally, I skipped because SnR because it's a not a true bullet hell game. The PVP aspect just isn't as fun. That and I slept in so beggars can't be choosers even though I really wanted that variant of Oddworld.
