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.

The Senko No Ronde CE is one of the nicer CE's they've done, but definitely not worth that price. I would have a hard time even justifying buying the standard edition at the price they set.. I guess other people feel the same way, cuz only the PAX variant has sold out.

Wario pointed out that the physical RockMan X legacy collection 2 is up for us orders on Amazon Japan, only way to get it physical

Is that true of both the PS4 and Switch versions?

No, only for the Switch version--the PS4 physical release contains 2 discs (one for X Legacy Collection 1, one for X Legacy Collection 2) for both Japan and US. The Switch combo-pack contains a voucher for X Legacy Collection 2 in both territories, but Japan is getting exclusive separate physical Switch versions of X Legacy Collection 1 and X Legacy Collection 2.

Shit; I forgot all about Thimbleweed Park for Switch.

Oh well; I wasn’t planning on having a full LRG Switch collection, anyway. I was mainly buying it just because it was # 1.

I’ll just have to stick to getting the games I actually want; LRG can turn into quite an expensive hobby in and of itself, and I’d rather not go down that rabbit hole.

Yeah, I grabbed Thimbleweed CE as I'm a big P&C fan, and portable was the way to go(for me at least). No telling when I'll ever get an NS, but I have been grabbing the occasional game here and there. I'm of the same mind set, as getting each title will be a fools errand, and I can already see how many games and CE are being offered.

 

With the Vita winding down, and with no plans for collecting all NS offerings, this year should be a much needed break to my finances. Which is great, as I just paid off all my outstanding CC balances and plan to stay debt free.

they'll have extras at some point. Extra stock and from people who inevitably cancel

Hopefully it'll be like "I am Setsuna" and play in English when you pop the JP cart in an American system. :pray:

So far every other release has worked this way, including the physical cartridge for Bayonetta 1.

Yeah, just saw the PA email and came to post, but already sold out it seems, so congrats to those who got in on these last 100 copies.

Hoping this happens with a couple other of their more rare releases.

They probably will, but with qty's this small, you are going to have to get really lucky to get a copy.

To be fair, I saw the email about 5 minutes after it sent, dicked around for 20 minutes, posted on here, then ordered it. It didn't exactly vanish in a heart beat.

Yeah, I would say it was up an hour total, and maybe half of that was after you posted, so I guess 1 in 24 is no longer being lucky. That's good to know.

Finally received the long delayed Don't Starve Mega Pack (PS4) from Best Buy that I preordered February of 2017.  Closed out my last Visa Checkout open order as well.  Came out to under $19 after GCU and Visa Checkout discount.

Pretty cool and limited shmup on sale at play Asia. This seemed to come out of nowhere.

I think I may have gotten a sign up for that one a few weeks back, and just didn't get around to listing it here. But yeah, these "limited" releases seem to be coming faster, and more often for sure.

The free shipping is pretty awesome, too. Although I feel like the price of this release went up to compensate for it. I'll be taking a hard look at future releases to see if that's actually the case.

Just an FYI, it sounds like there was a replication error and the "pack" doesn't include either the DLC or the original game on disc.

Damn seems like Playasias Prices went up I always liked them since they were cheaper

In fairness all they really did was to build the shipping into the price.  It's about the same total if you are in the US as it was on the last few releases.

They made shipping free and slightly made it cost a bit more. 

 

But hey. $3 discount code.

It is on switch, one of the reasons why I held out.
